Lightin' Hopkins/Brownie McGhee & Sonny TerryCoffee House Blues ... LP
Vee Jay, 1965. Sealed ... $19.99
Blues may not have been born in the coffee house, but by the early 60s it found a very welcome audience in that scene – thanks to growing interest in the genre by the younger folk generation! The album's liner notes by Barbara Dane are key proof of this fact – as are the album's performances by Lightnin Hopkins, a bit more rootsy than some of his other early 60s work – on titles that include "Coffee House Blues", "Stool Pigeon Blues", "Big Car Blues", and "Ball Of Twine". Brownie McGhee & Sonny Terry are no strangers to folksy blues, and they join Hopkins on a number of other tunes – including "Right On That Shore", "Blues For The Lowlands", "Walk On", and "Blues For Gamblers".

Lightnin HopkinsBlues ... LP
Mainstream, 1950/1951. New Copy (reissue)... $9.99
Great vintage recordings from Lightning Hopkins – initially recorded by producer Bob Shad on his trips to the south in the early 50s, then later issued on Shad's label Mainstream in the 60s! The style here captures Hopkins at his best – very spare and lowdown, with gritty guitar alongside Lightning's wonderful vocals – both intertwined in a snakey mode that's extremely compelling. There's no other instrumentation on the tracks at all, but there's a presence and personality that's extremely full – maybe more so than most other Hopkins material of this vintage. Titles include "Coffee Blues", "Hello Central", "Long Way From Texas", "Gotta Move", "Dirty House Blues", "Freight Train", and "Everybody's Down On Me". LP, Vinyl record album

New Howlin WolfLive & Cookin At Alice's Revisited (plus bonus tracks) ... CD
Chess, 1972. Used ... $11.99
Down homey early 70s blues from Howlin Wolf – not as funky as some of the other blues albums on Chess at the time, but with a nice rough and ready edge. Instrumentation includes a few guitars, tenor sax, piano, and bass – and Wolf himself plays a bit of harmonica – and the overall feel is very much in keeping with the kind of small club electric sets you might have caught on the south side of Chicago at the time. Titles include "Just Passing By", "I Didn't Know", "Mean Mistreater", "Call Me The Wolf", "Don't Laugh At Me" and "When I Laid Down I Was Troubled". This CD edition includes 2 longish bonus tracks: "The Big House" and "Mr. Airplane Man", both of which run north of the 7 minute mark. CD

Memphis Slim & Willie DixonBaby Please Come Home! – Memphis Slim & Willie Dixon In Paris ... CD
Battle, 1962. Used ... $5.99
Rootsy blues from the team of Memphis Slim and Willie Dixon – recorded in Paris in the early 60s at the Trois Mailletz nightclub! The style here is much earthier than you'd guess from the date – the return to tradition mode that some players often experienced while working in the European scene – and instrumentation features only piano from Slim and bass from Dixon, plus a bit of added drums from Philippe Combelle. Both artists sing on the album – and titles include "Rock & Rolling The House", "African Hunch With A Boogie Beat", "Baby Baby Baby", "Do De Do", "Pigalle Love", "All By Myself", "Just You & I", "How Make You Do Me Like You Do", and "The Way She Loves A Man".

New Bo DiddleyBlack Gladiator ... CD
Checker (Japan), 1970. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
A wicked reinvention of the sound of Bo Diddley – a set that electrifies his groove even more than before – and takes him into the same mix of funk and blues that Muddy Waters and Howlin Wolf were exploring at the time! This album's right up there with the two Cadet/Chess classics by both of those artists – and is possibly even more messed-up too – with lots of jagged edges that push past the usual Bo Diddley groove – even though that classic sense of rhythm is still at the core to drive things along! We don't know who's playing drums, but they've got a nice heavy handed approach that makes these tracks really boom – and the set's in a massively funky style that's taken far too many years to be acknowledged for in the mainstream! Lots of nice ones, including "Shut Up Woman", "Funky Fly", "Power House", "Black Soul", "Elephant Man", and "I've Got A Feeling". CD

Lemon NashPapa Lemon – The 1959 to 1961 Oster & Allen Recordings ... CD
Arhoolie, 1959/1960/1961. New Copy ... $14.99 16.98
Seminal recordings of Lemon "Papa Lemon" Nash from New Orleans – an artist who handled a ukulele with a soul that most blues musicians brought to the guitar! Despite the usual Hawaiian associations the instrument might have, the work here is all blues all the way through – with Nash singing alongside his instrument in a rootsy, stripped-down style that hasn't moved far from its roots in the delta! The recordings all really fit the early spirit of Arhoolie Records – almost a folkloric approach to blues – and the CD features 27 tracks in all, with titles that include "Trouble With The Man", "Gold Digger's Blues", "Bourbon Street Parade", "Let The Good Times Roll", "Barrelhouse", "We Played Anywhere", "Stagolee", and "Rabbit Brown".

New Muddy Waters, Buddy Guy, Howlin Wolf, & OthersFolk Festival Of The Blues ... CD
Argo (Japan), 1963. New Copy ... $13.99
Not the folk festival you might expect – especially given that the blues here are electric – and a set that was recorded at a small Chicago club, not some stuffy outdoor concert on the east coast! The album's an early powerhouse meeting of the best Chess blues talents at the time – a date that features Muddy Waters, Buddy Guy, Howlin Wolf, Sonny Boy Williamson, and Willie Dixon in varying settings – mostly getting center spotlight as a solo act with the same backing combo, but also coming together as well at one point too. The whole thing's great – a gritty live record of electric Chicago blues in the 60s – with a strong sense of liveness that really recreates the small club feel! Titles include "Wee Wee Baby", "Sitting & Thinking", "Worried Blues", "Sugar Mama", "Bring It On Home", "Got My Mojo Working", "May I Have A Talk With You", and "19 Years Old". CD
