Otis SpannSweet Giant Of The Blues ... CD
Flying Dutchman/Ace (UK), 1969. New Copy ... $11.99
The last album ever from the mighty Otis Spann – and maybe one of the greatest, too! The set's got Otis working in a hip blend of blues and jazz – served up with some tight combo work from west coast players who include Tom Scott on tenor and flute, Max Bennett on bass, Luie Shelton on guitar, and Paul Humphrey on drums! Otis plays piano, and sings with this raspy sound that's just right for his Chicago roots – and the use of electric bass by Bennett gives most of the numbers a funky undercurrent we really love. The approach is like some of the best ABC Bluesway sides of the same time – a mode that updates the Spann sound a bit, but never in a straight funk style – and titles include the mighty "I'm A Dues Payin Man", plus "I Wonder Why", "Bird In A Cage", "Make A Way", and "Sellin My Thing".

New Leon Thomas, T-Bone Walker, & OthersSuper Black Blues, Vol 2 ... LP
Flying Dutchman, 1970. Very Good+ Gatefold ... $14.99
A weird little set on Flying Dutchman – a live set that features the talents of Leon Thomas, T-Bone Walker, Eddie Vinson, and Joe Turner on vocals – plus instrumental backing by players that include Elvin Jones, Wynton Kelly, Howard Morgan, Earl (aka Neal) Creque, and Richard Landrum. The groove here is a mix of blues and funky soul – hipper than the usual blues set of the time, especially on the Leon Thomas tracks "Welcome To New York", "Damn Nam (Aint' Goin To Vietnam)", and "Disillusion Blues". Leon sings lead vocals on half the album – and other tracks include "Sail On", "Stormy Monday Blues", "I Had A Dream", "Person To Person", and "Honey Hush". LP, Vinyl record album

Eddie Cleanhead VinsonOriginal Cleanhead (with bonus tracks) ... CD
Flying Dutchman/Ace (UK), 1970. New Copy ... $11.99
A really sweet late effort from bluesy soul singer and sax player Eddie Cleanhead Vinson – his dawn of the 70s comeback! Cleanhead covered a whole lot of stylistic range in earlier years, from big band vocalist, to R&B shouter, to bebop era alto sax player – and he comfortably displays that range here, albeit in a loose, easygoing soul mode – backed by a great group of session players that includes Joe Pass, Artie Butler, Arthur Wright and Plas Johnson. Bob Thiele produced, and the titles include "Cleanhead Blues", "Pass Out", "Alimony Blues", "Cleanhead Is Back", "Juice Head Baby", "Old Maid Boogie", "One O'Clock Humph" and "I Needs To Be Be'd Wid". This great Ace CD version includes 3 bonus tracks: live versions of "Cleanhead Blues", "I Had A Dream" and "Person To Person". CD

T Bone WalkerEvery Day I Have The Blues (with bonus tracks) ... CD
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! The bottom end here kicks as much as Walker's work on the top – which gives the record a cool crossover mix of blues, soul, and funk – not that different from some of the funky blues experiments going on over at Chess Records at the time, but with more of an LA twist. A young Tom Scott plays some great tenor lines on the record – and titles include "Vietnam", "T Bone Blues Special", "Sail On", "For BB King", "Cold Cold Feeling", and "Shake It Baby". CD features two bonus tracks – live versions of "Sail On" and "Stormy Monday Blues". CD

T Bone WalkerSuper Black Blues ... CD
Flying Dutchman/Ace (UK), 1969. New Copy ... $11.99
A great little set from T-Bone – recorded at the end of the 60s, with a lineup that includes other blues musicians like Joe Turner, Otis Spann, and George Harmonica Smith, plus jazz funk players like Paul Humphrey and Ernie Watts! The vibe is very laidback – and most tracks on the album stretch out in an extended free-form style that's quite unusual compared to T-Bone's other records. As usual, his guitar and vocals are very soulful – and titles include "Paris Blues", "Blues Jam", and "Jot's Blues". A real gem on Flying Dutchman/Bluestime. CD

New Joe TurnerReal Boss Of The Blues (with bonus tracks) ... CD
Flying Dutchman/Ace (UK), 1969. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
One of the grooviest records ever cut by the legendary Joe Turner – a set that takes him far from his Kansas City roots, and his 50s R&B for Atlantic Records – into a mode that's maybe even more soul-based overall! The great Gene Page handles the backings here – with a tightness that comes from his years on the LA soul scene, and which mixes with the bluesier currents in the instrumentation to push Joe into some righteous late 60s grooves. Many tracks are older, but still have a cool new vibe – and the use of electric bass on the record really creates a nice sense of energy at the bottom. Titles include the ten minute "Plastic Man" – plus "Lonesome Train", "Careless Love", "Honey Hush", "How Long How Long Blues", and "Corrine Corrina". CD features two bonus live tracks – "Honey Hush" and "Yakety Yak". CD
