Taj MahalTaj Mahal ... CD
Columbia, 1968. New Copy ... $5.99 6.99
The first album in a mighty legendary run from Taj Mahal – one of the first generation of blues musicians to really learn to recast their sound for the younger crossover generation! By that, we don't mean that Taj is commercial at all – it's just that he's kind of reclaiming the blues ... read more CD

Really tremendous work from Memphis Slim – a set of early 50s recordings for Chess Records, most of which have a style that mixes equal parts jazz and blues! Slim's definitely got some bluesy phrasing in his piano, but he also echoes an older generation of jazz pianists too – ... read more CD

A loose, rollicking mid 70s studio record for Delmark by the great Otis Rush – with some longer numbers and a lively sound that's pretty damn sweet!

An obscure 70s album from the legendary Roosevelt Sykes – but a set that captures the singer and pianist at the height of his powers! The format here is very stripped-down – often just a focus on Sykes himself, with the occasional addition of a bit of guitar from Louisiana Red or ... read more CD

Basic soul, plenty of blues, and a fair bit of funk as well – a killer from Koko Taylor, recorded in that best style of late Chess Records!

Flying Dutchman/Ace (UK), 1969. New Copy ... $11.99
A sweet funky set from the mighty T-Bone Walker – a record that still includes loads of his wickedly sharp guitar lines, but which also gives him a tight groove with electric bass and great drums from the legendary Paul Humphrey!

Muddy's grooving hard and funky – with help from Cadet studio funksters like Charles Stepney, Phil Upchurch, Louis Satterfield, and Morris Jennings – one of the best ever of the once oft-maligned, now oft-beloved funk era Chess/Cadet albums!

Muddy Waters can't get no grinding – but that's hardly a problem, given the strength of this sweet early 70s set! The album marks Muddy's return to more basic Chicago blues after his funky electric period on Chess – but the set's still got some of the trippier touches of a few years ... read more CD

A late 60s album on Chess Records – but one that serves to bring together all the best early work that Muddy Waters did for the label – including lots of original 45s and 78s! The range of music is really wonderful – the kind of tracks that first got Waters noticed in the first ... read more CD

The Big Bill in the title is Big Bill Broonzy – a key influence on midcentury bluesmen all over the US, and paid tribute to nicely here by Muddy Waters! Given this tribute approach, the sound's a bit rootsier than some of Waters' other work for Chess at the time – a bit more emphasis ... read more CD

Big Joe Williams was an artist who recorded often in Chicago, but he's got a style that's much more down-home – as you'll hear on this double-length set of vintage recordings!
