Bo DiddleyAnother Dimension ... LP
Chess, 1971. New Copy (reissue)... $9.99
Funky Bo Diddley – one of Bo's key early 70s sessions for Chess Records – all of which have him stepping out in a much harder groove than years past! The sound here is relatively tight – with Diddley guitar and vocals on top of some larger arrangements from Bob Gallo – ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

Bo DiddleyBo Diddley's Beach Party (180 gram vinyl mono version) ... LP
Chess/Sundazed, 1963. New Copy ... $23.99 24.98
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
(In "glorious Distort-O-Phonic mono"!)

Bo DiddleyHave Guitar Will Travel ... LP
Checker, 1960. New Copy (reissue)... $9.99
Have guitar, will travel – and back in the day, Bo Diddley was going pretty darn far with great material like this! The album's a real standout, even in the classic Chess catalog of the early years –no filler, no covers, just all original material by Bo Diddley – done in that ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

Bo DiddleyWhere It All Began ... LP
Chess, 1972. New Copy (reissue)... $9.99
Nasty nasty funk from the great Bo Diddley – one of his rare funky 70s classics for Chess – produced by Johnny Otis with a really tripped-out groove! The album's got an edge that seems to go even farther than some of Bo's other Chess work at the time – and picks up the full-on ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

Willie DixonI Am The Blues (180 gram pressing) ... LP
Columbia, 1970. New Copy (reissue)... $13.99
A long-overdue recognition of the blues contributions of Willie Dixon – a set that pulls him out of the indie ghetto and pushes him firmly into the mainstream with this key release on Columbia Records!

John Lee HookerBoogie Chillun ... LP
Fantasy, Early 60s. New Copy 2LP (reissue)... $22.99 24.99
Sublime live work from John Lee Hooker – a set that features the legend on solo guitar and vocals, but recorded at a level that's even crisper and more personal than some of his other albums from the time! The performance is clearly pitched more towards the folk blues audience of the time, ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

John Lee HookerBurnin' ... LP
Vee Jay, 1962. New Copy (reissue)... $11.99
Plenty of Burnin from John Lee Hooker, and about as classic as you can get for his Vee Jay years – especially considering that the album starts out with Hooker's killer cut "Boom Boom" – a number that may well have set fire to a whole generation of British and American rockers! ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
John Lee HookerOn The Waterfront ... LP
Wand, Late 60s. New Copy (reissue)... $9.99
A really unique album from the great John Lee Hooker – done for the mostly-soul Wand Records label, and with a feel that's quite different than some of Hooker's other records! There's a distinctly jazzy undercurrent running through the record at times – sometimes with some moody, ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
John Lee HookerTravelin' ... LP
Vee Jay, 1960. New Copy (reissue)... $9.99
Rough and raw blues from John Lee Hooker – recorded with plenty of emphasis on gritty guitar and vocals, backed by a nicely understated rhythm section! The overall feel is a bit rootsier than some of the other blues work coming out from Chicago labels at the time – and Hooker's right ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

John Lee Hooker/Sticks McGheeHighway Of The Blues ... LP
Audio Lab, Mid 50s. New Copy (reissue)... $9.99
Rare King Records material from these two postwar blues greats – each of whom get a single side of the record! Sticks McGhee really shines on side one – with that playful, jazzy approach to blues that he used on his late 40s recordings for Atlantic – almost somewhere in the ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

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 ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
Lightnin HopkinsGreat Electric Show & Dance ... LP
Jewel, 1969. New Copy (reissue)... $9.99
Classic blues from Lightnin Hopkins – a set that's far rootsier than you might expect from the "electric show" in the title! Hopkins plays mostly acoustic guitar here – and sings with very spare backing overall – just a bit of keyboards, bass, and drums, plus some ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

Two generations of blues – presented together here in a classic Folkways package!

Mississippi John Hurt1928 Sessions (180 gram pressing) ... LP
Yazoo, 1928. New Copy (reissue)... $14.99
Vintage work from Mississippi John Hurt, but somehow amazingly clear and crisp in this classic LP presentation! The tunes are wonderfully earthy – just vocals and guitar from Hurt, in a style that's definitely blues, but which has some surprisingly jazzy inflections at times – at least ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

Yazoo, Late 20s. New Copy (reissue)... $14.99
He may be blind, but he's plenty satisfied – and so are we, with this excellent package of rare 78rpm recordings from Willie Johnson! The sound quality is great – which is important, as Willie's got a style of guitar that's almost lighter in tone than some of his contemporaries – ... 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!

Freddy KingBossa Nova & Blues (180 gram pressing) ... LP
King/Sundazed, 1963. New Copy (reissue)... $19.99 21.98
Bossa nova and blues? Turns out they're a surprisingly great combination – but not in a mode that's really the more mainstream conception of either – and instead more of that mix of Brazilian rhythms and soul you'd find in early 60s work by The Drifters! The record's a real standout ... read more LP, Vinyl record album
(Beautiful heavy vinyl mono pressing – just like an original King Records version!)

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

Yazoo, 1927/1928. New Copy (reissue)... $14.99
Two years might be a short time for any artist to be in their "prime" – but the quality of these sides is so strong, they've supported the reputation of Furry Lewis for many many years!

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! On the west side, they mix plenty of soul in with their blues – and you can definitely hear that on this stone smoker – a record that ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

Magic SamLive At The Avant Garde – June 22, 1968 ... LP
Delmark, 1968. New Copy 2LP ... $16.99 24.99
A hell of a great record from Magic Sam – a really well-recorded live set from a small club in Milwaukee, and an album that really gets at all the gritty genius that made Sam so great! The set's almost equal parts blues and soul – definitely the former, but with plenty of funky ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

Magic SamWest Side Soul ... LP
Delmark, 1967. New Copy (reissue)... $9.99 12.99

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
The funk-tinged, pyschedelic soul album from Muddy Waters – one that irritated many a blues purist in its day – but it's finally reaching its earned status as a leftfield gem!
