Bobby Blue BlandCall On Me (Bluesway pressing) ... LP
Duke/Bluesway, 1963/1973. Very Good- ... $5.99
One of Bobby Blue Bland's best albums ever – a stunning mix of blues and soul that's the kind of killer stuff that will make you a fan of his forever! There's no beating Bland at this point in his career – and the record is one of the finest illustrations of the power he brought to his work, subtly balancing a sense of class with rootsier down-hominess that few other singers could ever handle so well. That blend allowed Bobby to reach out to way more audiences than most of his contemporaries – and it's still equally powerful today – and the album's arrangements by Joe Scott are impeccable, with a slight touch of jazz that we totally love. The album includes classics like "That's The Way Love Is", "Call On Me", "Cry Lover Cry", "Care For Me", "Bobby's Blues", and "Honky Tonk". This is the 70s version of the original album – and features a different cover than the original. LP, Vinyl record album
(Cover has a cutout hole & a split top seam.)

Bobby Blue BlandTwo Steps From The Blues ... CD
Duke/MCA, Early 60s. Used ... $3.99
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 used for the backdrop, but presented with a rock-solid style that definitely points the way towards many sounds and styles to come in the 60s. And although Bland recorded many of these tracks as separate singles, there's a way they're put together here that makes the whole thing sound completely marvelous together – a really well-conceived track list that shows that Bobby's an even greater artist in the space of a full record. The arrangements are perfect, and Bobby's rough soulful voice is blended in this amazing way with killer horn arrangements that are far more sophisticated than most stuff that ever came after this, and which never get in the way, but only back up his deep emotion. The album's a motherlode of classics by the man, with gems that include "Two Steps From The Blues", "Cry Cry Cry", "I Don't Want No Woman", "I'm Not Ashamed", "Don't Cry No More", "Lead Me On", and "I Pity The Fool". And hell, even his version of "St James Infirmary" is pretty wonderful – something we never thought we'd say about that song. CD

John & Sylvia EmbryTroubles ... CD
Delmark, 1979. Used ... $6.99
One of the rootsiest albums ever cut by Delmark Records – a late 70s set from this obscure Chicago duo, partially recorded at a small club on the south side! John and Sylvia Embry are a great antidote to some of the tighter, slicker blues that was dominating the Windy City by the late 70s – and really take things back to a basic Chitown electric mode – with John laying down some incredible leads on guitar, and Sylvia belting out these amazing lyrics that are really dripping with soul! Titles include "Wonder Why", "Troubles", "Lie To Me", "I'm Hurtin", "Mustang Sally", and "Going To New York". CD features 5 bonus tracks added to the original album issue – for a total of 17 tracks in all! CD

New John Lee HookerKabuki Wuki/Born In Mississippi, Raised Up In Tennessee ... CD
ABC/BGO (UK), 1973. New Copy 2 CDs ... $18.99
A pair of post-Chess albums from John Lee Hooker – both of them great! Kabuki Wuki is mighty great live work from John Lee Hooker – recorded during an all-night concert in early 70s San Francisco – but with a freewheeling groove that feels like a small club in Chicago during the early years of electric blues! Hooker's guitar and vocals are tremendous – often served up in that heavy pulse of his best vintage recordings – and Robert Hooker adds in some sweet Hammond licks on a few numbers, to give things slightly jazzy undercurrent as well. Tracks include "Hold It", "Look At The Rain", "My Best Friend", "Your Love", and "If You Got A Dollar". The second album is Born in Mississippi, raised in Tennessee, but recorded in California with some mighty great grooves! The album's a great mix of the rootsy blues of John Lee Hooker and some of the best production modes ABC Records was using at the time – no hoke or attempt to dampen the energy of the core music – but just the key addition of fresh elements from players who include Clifford Coulter on piano, Sugarcane Harris on violin, Oscar Brashear on trumpet, Mel Brown on bass, George Bohannon on trombone, and John Klemmer on electrified sax with effects! These players all have a great ear for messing up jazz, blues, soul, and funk – and help Hooker to make the set one of his hippest ever – a record that nods strongly at the new generation, yet never panders to it at all. Titles include "Younger Stud", "King Of The World", "Tell Me You Love Me", and "Going Down". CD

Little MiltonGrits Ain't Groceries (Checker) ... CD
Checker (Japan), 1969. New Copy ... $13.99
One of the funkiest albums ever cut by Little Milton – done at the end of the 60s with some hard Chicago soul arrangements from Gene Barge, and an overall style that mixes electric blues with some of the hard soul coming from the city's west side scene at the time! The album's much more of a soul album than a blues one – especially in comparison to some of Milton's other work – and titles include "Twenty Three Hours", "Just A Little Bit", "I Can't Quit You Baby", "I'll Always Love You", "Did You Ever Love A Woman", "Spring", and "You're The One".
