New Bobby BlandGet On Down With Bobby Bland ... LP
ABC, 1975. Very Good- ... $3.99
Brilliant later work by Bobby Blue Bland – done with backings that are much fuller than on his earlier albums – a mixture of strings and horns that really expand the sound! That doesn't keep things from being soulful, though – as Bobby's in incredible form vocally, really rising ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

Sam Brothers 5Sam Brothers 5 (180 gram pressing) ... LP
Arhoolie, 1979. Near Mint- (reissue)... $8.99
One of the youngest groups of the zydeco wave of the 70s – and one of the grooviest too! The group's got a solid swing and sense of soul that goes beyond most of their contemporaries – almost a deeper current of blues at most points, especially in the guitar – and even in some of ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

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

Bo DiddleyBo Diddley In The Spotlight ... LP
Checker, Early 60s. Near Mint- ... $9.99
Man, with a square guitar and a badass style of presentation, it's hard to imagine how Bo could manage to NOT be in the spotlight! The album, like all his early Chess sides, is a real cut above the usual R&B set – with all original tracks, a really self-contained approach, and a no-nonsen ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

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

Have guitar, will travel – and back in the day, Bo Diddley was going pretty darn far with great material like this!

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!

Is it Fulsom or Fulson?

Excello, Early 60s. Very Good+ ... $16.99
Classic work from Slim Harpo – an album that kicks off with one of his biggest hits ever, and follows with plenty of great tunes as well! Things here are pretty rootsy and stripped-down – lots of spare, slowish rhythms (but a few funkier ones too!) – and instrumentation that's ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

Fantastic stuff from John Lee Hooker, and a record that's unlike any other he's ever done!

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 ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

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!

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

Shakey HortonSoul Of Blues Harmonica ... LP
Argo, 1964. Near Mint- ... $28.99
With a record like this, it's clear that Shakey Horton's the soul of blues harmonica – if not the king as well! The album's filled with wonderful instrumentals that really focus Horton's talents strongly – not used just as flavoring or an occasional solo to spice up a tune – but ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

Chess, 1967. Very Good ... $44.99
A much earlier set of tracks than the first volume of Real Folk Blues from Howlin Wolf – mostly material recorded in the mid 50s, both in Chicago and Memphis – all with a really nitty gritty sort of feel! There's a rough and rootsy mode going on here – one that has Wolf's raspy ... 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

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

Stax, 1968. Near Mint- ... $14.99
Plenty of blues power here – a searing live set recorded by Albert King before a very enthusiastic crowd at the Fillmore in the late 60s!

Tomato, 1978. Near Mint- ... $9.99
Albert King teams up with Allen Toussaint for a sweet set of soul-drenched blues!

One of the most tightly-produced of BB King's albums for MCA, but a set that's still filled with undeniable charm – and which really shows King more than able to step up to some well-deserved superstardom!

One of the funkiest albums ever cut by Little Milton – done at the end of the 60s with some hard Chicago soul arrangements from Gene Barge, and an overall style that mixes electric blues with some of the hard soul coming from the city's west side scene at the time! The album's much more of a ... read more LP, Vinyl record album
