Modern/Ace (UK), Late 50s. New Copy (reissue)
Boogie, indeed – as the tracks here are filled with the kind of skittish guitar lines that made John Lee Hooker one of the real standouts of the 50s scene – maybe one of the most rhythmic bluesmen of his generation, next to Bo Diddley! Like Diddley's classic records for Chess, most of ... LP, Vinyl record album

Flying Dutchman/Ace (UK), 1969. New Copy
One of the grooviest records ever cut by the legendary Joe Turner – a set that takes him far from his Kansas City roots, and his 50s R&B for Atlantic Records – into a mode that's maybe even more soul-based overall! The great Gene Page handles the backings here – with a ... CD

Bummer Road (with bonus tracks)
Chess (Japan), 1957/1958/1960. New Copy
No bummer here, as the set's a really great one – filled with late 50s Chess Records sides by Sonny Boy Williamson – a number of which are previously unissued! The package does a great job of reviving this material for a newly-informed blues audience of the modern age – giving ... CD

King Snake, 1987. Near Mint-
Late 80s UK sessions from WC Handy Award winning blues man Lazy Lester – the Lazy Lester Rides Again album originally released by Blue Horizon label in '87 – plus a slew of previously unreleased recordings! Lester sings and blows harp, backed by electric guitar, bass, drums, piano and ... LP, Vinyl record album

Real Folk Blues
Chess, 1950s. Very Good
A classic packaging of Muddy Waters' famous early work for Chess Records – brought together with a cover and title that pitch him strongly towards the growing folk movement of the time! And, although most of these tracks were recorded in Chicago, with some electric guitar in the mix, there's ... LP, Vinyl record album

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
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
Call On Me
Duke, 1963. Good+
One of Bobby Blue Bland's best albums ever – a stunning mix of blues and soul that's the kind of killer stuff that will make you a fan of his forever! There's no beating Bland at this point in his career – and the record is one of the finest illustrations of the power he brought to his ... LP, Vinyl record album

CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
I Am The Blues
Columbia/Legacy, 1970. Used
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! Yet despite that placement, the style is nicely down home – a strong recreation of ... CD

ABC, 1971. Very Good+
BB King live at the Cook County Jail in Chicago – and given the amount of great live shows going on in the institution during the early 70s, the jail must have been one hell of a place to be incarcerated! This classic features BB King entertaining the prisoners with a wickedly sharp blues ... LP, Vinyl record album

Great Electric Show & Dance
Jewel, 1969. New Copy (reissue)
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 ... LP, Vinyl record album
CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
Travelin'
Vee Jay, 1960. New Copy (reissue)
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 ... LP, Vinyl record album
CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
Delmark, 1968. New Copy 2LP
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 ... LP, Vinyl record album
CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
Glades/Warner (Japan), 1977. New Copy
Little Milton's always been as much of a soul singer as a bluesman – and this overlooked gem from the 70s has him hitting equally well on both fronts! The set's a great precursor to Milton's 80s revival on Malaco – but has the singer working in Chicago, with these deep soul ... CD

Burnin'
Vee Jay, 1962. New Copy (reissue)
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! ...

Electric Mud
Cadet, 1968. Good+
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! You know, in the immediate years after this one (and similar funky blues albums on Chess/Cadet) was released, ... LP, Vinyl record album

I'm Jimmy Reed
Vee Jay, Late 50s. Very Good-
A stone classic from Jimmy Reed – and one of the first few albums on the Vee Jay label! The sound is spare, rootsy, and bluesy – the kind of tunes that made Jimmy an instant favorite, and which were a key force in the Chicago blues sound of the 50s. The set features material recorded ... LP, Vinyl record album

Boogie Chillun
Fantasy, Early 60s. New Copy 2LP (reissue)
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, ... LP, Vinyl record album
