Arhoolie, 1959/1960/1961. New Copy
Seminal recordings of Lemon "Papa Lemon" Nash from New Orleans – an artist who handled a ukulele with a soul that most blues musicians brought to the guitar! Despite the usual Hawaiian associations the instrument might have, the work here is all blues all the way through – ... CD

Howlin Wolf Album
Cadet/Get On Down, 1968. New Copy (reissue)
A killer album of funky blues – recorded by Howlin Wolf during the period when Chess/Cadet was backing its older artists up with some of the newer funk musicians it had working in its studios! The overall sound works quite well – and although purists at the time moaned at the way ... LP, Vinyl record album

Woman Across The River
Shelter, 1973. Very Good
A smoking electric blues set from Freddie King – and like all of his best early 70s work, an album that's got a heck of a lot more soul than you'd expect! Freddie moves past cliches nicely on the record – smoking in a lean, mean Texas guitar sort of style – but also cooking ... LP, Vinyl record album

Big Bill's Blues
Columbia, Late 50s. Near Mint-
Very raw, very rootsy stuff from Big Bill Broonzy, issued by Columbia (strangely enough) as part of their Adventures In Sound series. The packaging and the notes have the usual smug Columbia "serving up the best in roots culture for white liberals" tone – but the set's actually a ... LP, Vinyl record album

It's My Life, Baby
Vanguard, 1966. Near Mint-
Some of his classic 60's material, recorded live at Pepper's Lounge on the South Side of Chicago in 1966. With the tracks "It's My Life Baby", "Country Girl", and "Shake it Baby". Great Chicago blues/soul crossover stuff. LP, Vinyl record album

ABC/Universal, 1970. New Copy
BB King hips up his groove a bit here – picking up some of the crossover soul and rock touches used by contemporaries over at Chess/Cadet, and expanding his sound with a range of guests that include Leon Russell, Joe Walsh, and Carole King! Despite the presence of these bigger names, the set' ... CD

Classic Stax blues by the king of the Memphis blues scene of the late 60's. Production's handled by Stax, even though the LP was released on Atlantic, and the set includes "Born Under A Bad Sign", "Overall Junction", "Laundromat Blues", "Cold Feet", and ... CD

Sufferin Mind
Specialty, Early/Mid 50s. Used
Beautiful blues from Guitar Slim – west coast material from the mid-50s, recorded with some very hip backings! Slim's got a lean, mean edge – a style that's a bit similar to Johnny Watson in his early years, touched with some of the class of the R&B scene that was bubbling up in ... CD

Mississippi, Late 20s/1930s/1940s/Early 50s. New Copy
They're not lying with the title of this one – as the set's a killer collection of rural blues, with a legacy that goes way beyond the glory days of the genre in the 20s and 30s! The collection's a great one from Mississippi – exactly the kind of pre-LP material that the label's been ... LP, Vinyl record album
CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
Mississippi, Late 20s/1930s/1940s/Early 50s. New Copy
Deep, lost, or long-buried blues and gospel records from the old days – creaky 78s that creep deep into the soul – beautiful stuff from Lottie Kimbrough, Robert Petway, the Anglin Brothers and more! Great stuff, from chugging rustic guitar and voice blues, to some very moving pre-R& ... LP, Vinyl record album
CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
Chess/Traffic, 1950s/1960s. New Copy
A late 60s album on Chess Records – but one that serves to bring together all the best early work that Muddy Waters did for the label – including lots of original 45s and 78s! The range of music is really wonderful – the kind of tracks that first got Waters noticed in the first ... CD

Lowdown Back Porch Blues
Roulette/Warner (Japan), 1963. New Copy
An early set from Louisiana Red – a singer who'd shine more brightly in the early 70s on Atlantic, but one who's already got a very definite style here on an early album for Roulette! The album's got a gritty electric blues vibe that's more Chess Records than you might expect – Red's ... CD
CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
Blues Is King
Bluesway/Traffic, 1967. New Copy
A 60s set from Memphis bluesman BB King – but one put together with a very distinct Chicago touch as well! The set's produced by Johnny Pate, and recorded live with a vibe that's similar to King's classic recording at The Regal – but it's almost got even more of a soulful punch, thanks ... CD
CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
Checker/Kent (UK), 1980s/Early 90s. New Copy
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 ... CD

Southside Blues Jam
Delmark, Early 70s. New Copy (reissue)
LP...$9.99 12.99
An incredible slice of Chicago blues – and maybe one of the most important contributions Delmark ever made to the Windy City scene! The album captures Junior Wells in all his rough and raw brilliance – working in territory that's quite similar to the Chess Records vibe of the early 60s ... LP, Vinyl record album
CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
Lucille
ABC/Traffic, 1968. New Copy
One of the first records to feature BB King's famous guitar, Lucille, in the spotlight – an instrument he'd played for years, but which took on legendary status over the decades! The guitar's handled perfectly here by King – with a tone that still holds on to all the gritty edges of ... CD
CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
Hoodoo Man Blues
Delmark, 1965. New Copy (reissue)
LP...$9.99 12.99
The incredible mid 60s album from blues singer and harp blower Junior Wells and his Chicago Blues Band with Buddy Guy! This is a most pivotal set in which Junior & his players don't sound as if they're trying to imbue blues tradition with urban grit and electricity – it simply seems to ... LP, Vinyl record album
CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
Yazoo, 1931. New Copy (reissue)
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 ... LP, Vinyl record album
CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
Go Bo Diddley
Checker, Early 60s. Near Mint-
Bo is unstoppable at this point in his career – and given a heck of a lot more freedom than most other soul artists, too – as he wrote, arranged, and really put the whole album together, something you wouldn't find an artist getting that much chance to do at the time! It's almost like ... LP, Vinyl record album
