Jewel/Fuel 2000, 1960s/1970s. New Copy 2 CDs
A nice collection of the blusier groovers on Jewel and Paula – from the mid 60s and on through the 70s – with underappreciated gems from stars like Bobby Rush, Fontella Bass, Lightnin' Hopkins and Lowell Fulsom, plus equally strong singles by The Carter Brothers, Peppermint Harris, ... CD

Columbia, Late 60s/Early 70s. Sealed 2LP
A definite treasure from Taj Mahal – especially for fans of his excellent early work for Columbia Records!

Stoned Soul
Delmark, 2014. Used
Giles Corey is a bluesman at heart, but he plays here in a style that's got lots of soul and funk touches too – particularly in the way he works his guitar with lots of wah-wah style riffs! The record's got a contemporary blues vibe overall, but Giles definitely has a slightly different ... CD

Ace (UK), Late 40s/Early 50s. New Copy
A tremendous guitarist, with a really mindblowing sound – easily one of the most powerful players on the electric guitar of the time! Pee Wee Crayton's got this full, rich tone that reminds us a lot of T Bone Walker – especially when he hits lots of raspy edges – and like Walker, ... CD
CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
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

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

Message In Blue
Delmark, 2014. New Copy
Dave Specter is a blues guitarist with a long legacy on the Chicago scene – but on this album he also gets some help from windy city soul legend Otis Clay! Otis only sings on three of the album's thirteen tracks – but the setting with Specter really helps Clay find one of his strongest ... CD

Set Me Free (with bonus tracks)
Delmark, 1983. New Copy
An excellent early 80s session from guitarist Steve Freund – recorded on the indie side of the Chicago scene, and a key debut for the vocals of Gloria Hardiman! Gloria's definitely a blues singer, but her phrasing is almost more deep soul at times too – a really rich voice that was ... CD
CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
Flying Dutchman/Ace (UK), 1969. New Copy
The last album ever from the mighty Otis Spann – and maybe one of the greatest, too! The set's got Otis working in a hip blend of blues and jazz – served up with some tight combo work from west coast players who include Tom Scott on tenor and flute, Max Bennett on bass, Luie Shelton on ... CD
CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
Ace (UK), Early 50s. New Copy 3CD
A massive 3CD look at the key early years of Elmore James – a package that's overflowing with great work by one of the greatest blues guitarists of the 50s! The set starts way back at James' roots in Mississippi, with some sweetly rough-edged recordings that still sparkle with incredible ... CD
CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
Electric Mud
Cadet, 1968. New Copy (reissue)
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
CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
West Side Soul
Delmark, 1967. Near Mint-
A classic bit of indie blues from the Chicago scene – featuring some great players from the second generation after Chess Records stopped picking up the younger local talents! Magic Sam leads the group on vocals and guitar, and he's working here with Mighty Joe Young on guitar, Odie Payne on ... LP, Vinyl record album

Born Under A Bad Sign
Stax, 1967. Very Good+
One of THE electric blues records of the 60s – a seminal set by Albert King that was probably blasted out of more college dorm rooms than southside juke joints, but which still more than deserves its due! The set was recorded by Stax with a nice raw sound – guitar very much upfront, ... LP, Vinyl record album

Coffee House Blues
Vee Jay, 1965. Sealed
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 ... LP, Vinyl record album
CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
Where It All Began
Chess, 1972. Very Good+ (reissue)
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 ... LP, Vinyl record album
CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
ABC, 1970. Very Good- Gatefold
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' ... LP, Vinyl record album
