RL BurnsideFirst Recordings (180 gram pressing with download) ... LP
Fat Possum/Epitaph, 1968. New Copy ... $11.99 15.99

New Bo DiddleyBo Diddley (180 gram pressing) ... LP
Checker/Sundazed, 1958. New Copy ... $21.99 24.98
Fantastically twangy! We never tire of Bo Diddley's incredible guitar work – and you'll get plenty of it in this early album he cut for Chess, a tasty batch of 12 tracks, all original tunes with a stripped-down gutbuckety sound – rough, raw rhythms that feature plenty of Bo's gritty ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

New Bo DiddleyBo Diddley's Beach Party (180 gram vinyl mono version) ... LP
Chess/Sundazed, 1963. New Copy ... $21.99 24.99
You might need to be a Diddley diehard to know it, given the pretty hokey early 60s Beach Party cover photo – get past that and what you'll find is a rowdy, rumbling and completely incredible live album from Bo! It features material captured on a 2 night stand at The Beach Club in Myrtle ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

Lightnin HopkinsLightnin & The Blues – Lightnin Hopkins Sings A Collection Of American Folklore (Herald) ... LP
Herald, 1954. New Copy (reissue)... $11.99
Lightnin Hopkins at his best – a set that rings out with all his bold electric tones on the guitar, yet which also has the moody, stripped-down feel of a blues recording from a few decades before! The electricity really does a lot to deepen the tone – both in the echo from Hopkins' ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

Skip JamesComplete 1931 Session (180 gram pressing) ... LP
Yazoo, 1931. New Copy (reissue)... $14.99
Exactly the kind of a record to show why Skip James was really a cut above most of his contemporaries – a bluesman who works here with a sense of darkness and foreboding that really sets a chill to most of his tunes! There's less of the usual short-term sadness and smaller complaints of ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

Junior KimbroughFirst Recordings (10 inch LP) ... LP
Big Legal Mess/Fat Possum, 1966. New Copy ... $11.99
Wicked early work from Junior Kimbrough – sides that are quite different than some of his better-known recordings over the years! The material was cut in Memphis in 1966 by producer Quinton Claunch – and it's got a spare, rootsy quality that's totally great – slow moving drums ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

New Freddy KingFreddy King Goes Surfin (180 gram pressing) ... LP
King/Sundazed, 1962. New Copy (reissue)... $21.99
Hardly the surf album you might expect from the title – although the set is a killer batch of guitar instrumentals – with more than enough power to blow any west coast groups right off the beach! At this early point in his career, Freddie King is way more than just a blues guitarist, ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

Magic SamBlack Magic ... LP
Delmark, Late 60s. New Copy (reissue)... $9.99 15.99
Rough-edged blues from the west side of Chicago – a stone classic from the mighty Magic Sam – a player who was taken from us all too soon!

Junior ParkerYou Don't Have To Be Black To Love The Blues ... LP
Groove Merchant, 1971. New Copy (reissue)... $9.99
A fitting title to this one – as it virtually describes the standard that the blues business was operating on during the early 70s – as artists came out of the shadows and found big audiences on college campuses, rock clubs, and other crossover scenes! The concept is carried to the Nth ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

Muddy WatersElectric Mud ... LP
Cadet, 1968. New Copy (reissue)... $9.99
