Little MiltonLittle Milton Sings Big Soul ... CD
Checker/Kent (UK), 1980s/Early 90s. New Copy ... $14.99
Big soul from Little Milton – a bluesman at heart, but one who always had an equal heart for soul as well – so much so, that by the time of these records, he was almost more of a southern soul singer overall! The set brings together a wealth of overlooked gems that Milton recorded for Malaco Records after his initial years at Chess – and the tunes have this slow-burning vibe that really shows the way that Malaco carried the flame of southern soul in the 80s – at a time when other labels like Stax and Atlantic had really let it die! There's a very old school vibe to these tracks – way more so than you'd guess from the date – and Milton's completely charming all the way through, on titles that include "Can't Trust Your Neighbor", "What Our Love Needs", "Caught In The Act", "You Left A Goldmine For A Golddigger", "That's The Way I Feel Bout Cha", "Gonna Have Murder On Your Hands", "I'd Rather Go Blind", and "Mr & Mrs Untrue".

New BB KingJungle ... LP
Kent, Mid 60s. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
One of the standout classics from BB King's legendary run at Kent – a classic 60s LP with a cool little cover to boot! Arrangements on the set are by Maxwell Davis, but the overall sound is still plenty gritty – raw, rootsy electric blues with a definite Memphis influence, and a bit of a Chicago 60s twist. Titles include "Beautician Blues", "The Jungle", "5 Long Years", "Eyesight To The Blind", "Blue Shadows", "The Worst Thing In My Life", "Blues Stay Away", "Got Em Bad", and "It's A Mean World". LP, Vinyl record album
(Blue, purple, and green label Kent pressing. Cover has some wear, stains on the back, a split spine, and splitting on the other seams.)

Lowell FulsomLowell Fulsom In A Heavy Bag ... CD
Jewel/Fuel 2000, 1969. New Copy ... $4.99 11.98
The heavy bag here is a bluesy one – as Lowell Fullsom's working in territory that's got a lot of rootsy, almost southern blues in the mix – but which still cracks out at times with his hipper, more funk-tuned groove! There's a few tracks on here that hearken towards the "Tramp" groove from his Kent years – like "Lady In The Rain" and "Sleeper" – both of which have a nicely funky undercurrent and vamping guitar that really snaps along with the rhythm. Other numbers have a straighter blues feel, but one that still has a sinister approach that goes way past cliches for the college crowd – showing Lowell to be firmly in charge, no matter what the setting. Tracks include "Sleeper", "Lady In The Rain", "Man Of Motion", "Why Don't We Do It In The Road", "Look At You Baby", "Trouble Everywhere", and "This Feeling". CD features 3 bonus tracks – "Stoned To The Bone", "Every Second A Fool Is Born", and "Lonesome Christmas". CD

New Louisiana RedDead Stray Dog ... CD
Blue Labor/Fat Possum, 1975. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
Great 70s work from Louisiana Red – recorded in a style that makes the album one of his most earnest, personal sets on wax! The record was done in close collaboration with producer Kent Cooper – a friend and very sympathetic ear for Red's music – and also the co-writer of most of the tunes in the set – or at least "co-developer", as most of the lyrics were initially penned by Cooper, then picked up casually by Red and slowly worked into very unique tunes of his own. The approach here is excellent – just Red himself on vocals and guitar, recorded straight without any sort of hoke or mainstream pandering at all – which is why the album's probably been the under-discovered gem it has been for so many years. Titles include "Riding On A Tall White Horse", "Dead Stray Dog", "Held Up In One Town", "New Jersey Woman", "Caught My Man & Gone", and "Bad Case Of The Blues". CD
