Storyville, 1954. Very Good- .... $38.99
Great early work from vocalist Teddi King – a set that's got a lot more dark corners and moody moments than some of her later work!

Tru Sound/Prestige, Early 60s. Very Good- .... $11.99
Quite a groovy early album from King Curtis – one that's got a strange little gimmick, but one that works wonderfully!
