One of the last great blues artists to record for the Jewel/Paula label – and a key figure in the Chicago underground as well! Buster Benton works here with a style that's definitely got the Chicago electric vibe of the 70s – but which also echoes earlier, rootsier modes as well – ... read more CD

New Bobby Blue BlandDreamer ... LP
ABC, 1974. Very Good Gatefold ... $13.99
Sure it's not his Duke recordings, and sure, the sound's a bit 70s-ish – but Bobby's voice is always fantastic, and he still sounds great in this smooth batch of tracks recorded in LA. Backings were arranged and conducted by Michael Omartian – but it's Bobby's vocals that really make ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

Bobby Blue BlandHis California Album ... CD
ABC/MCA, 1973. Used ... $2.99
A nice little record from Bobby – quite different from his 60s sides for Duke/Peacock, and recorded in California (as you might guess from the title!) with a smoother more soulful approach. The style works well for Bobby – and kind of gave him a new lease on life during the 70s, as he ... read more CD

An incredible record from Bobby Blue Bland – and quite possibly the greatest one he ever made! The set's got an amazing something special that's unlike most other material of the time – a bit blues, but a lot of soul too – still with some echoes of R&B in the jazzier charts ... read more CD

Rare Mississippi blues from Ranie Burnette – recorded in the early 80s, but with a timeless style that takes us right back to the delta!

A mad bit of music from the great Bo Diddley – recorded after his early 70s funk records on Chess – but with a similar genre-tripping style! The album's got this full-on fuzzy feel right from the start – put together by producer Ron Terry, who matches Diddley's wilder side with ... read more CD
