New Son HouseLegendary Son House Father Of Folk Blues (180 gram pressing) ... LP
Columbia, 1965. New Copy (reissue).... Out Of Stock
A great return to recording for Son House – a musician who'd stopped playing the guitar in the postwar years, but rose again to fame during the great folk blues revival of the 60s! The style here is every bit as classic as some of Son's earliest music – just recorded a lot better, too – with beautiful focus on the subtle inflections he brings to the strings of his acoustic guitar, and vocals that ring out a lot stronger than they might have on a 78. Titles include "John The Revelator", "Empire State Express", "Preachin Blues", "Sundown", and "Grinnin In Your Face". LP, Vinyl record album

Bo DiddleyBlack Gladiator ... CD
Checker (Japan), 1970. New Copy .... $13.99
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

Lightnin HopkinsBlues (180 gram pressing) ... 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

Blind Willie McTellComplete Recorded Works In Chronological Order – Volume 1 (180 gram vinyl) ... LP
Document/Third Man, Late 20s. New Copy .... $16.99 19.99
A great collection of the earliest work of Blind Willie McTell – all recordings made in Atlanta between 1927 and 1929 – served up in a wonderfully spare style that really showcases Willie's work on vocals and guitar! The latter "sings" as much as the former here – often with these inflections that are completely sublime, and almost more compelling than the notes themselves – and there's a harmony between the instrument and the voice that really seems to expand the power of the tunes, even with such a simple presentation. Titles include "Statesboro Blues", "Stole Rider Blues", "Mr McTell Got The Blues", "Come On Around To My House Mama", "Love Changing Blues", and "Drive Away Blues". LP, Vinyl record album

Alec SewardLate One Saturday Evening ... CD
Blue Labor/Fat Possum, 1966. New Copy .... $11.99 13.99
A very rootsy set that was recorded live at a house party in the mid 60s – and done with a sound to match! Alec Seward never fully got his due before passing away too soon in the early 70s – but he was a good friend of Brownie McGhee and Sonny Terry – both of whom join in a bit here (especially Sonny on harmonica), and with whom Seward shares a strong ear for older, rootsier modes, even in a more contemporary electric scene. Yet the set's also quite different than any of Terry and McGhee's own records – a bit more personal, and maybe less crowd-pleasing – done with an intimacy that really shows a personal portrait of Alec on guitar and vocals. Washboard Doc plays a bit of his own instrument at points, and Julia Carr sings just a bit too – but the main focus is on Seward, on titles that include "Her Ways Are So Sweet", "Rock Me Darlin", "Late One Saturday Evening", "Feel So Good", "Blues All Around My Head", and "Creepin Blues".

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".
