Alan Lomax recordings of the surviving fife and drum music of North Mississippi – much of it recorded in 1969 and 1970 with few recordings from as far back as 1942! The music represents the (then) surviving legacy of earlier African American music of the region, less heard and less celebrated than the blues to come – and fusion of African and western traditional music that was rarely heard outside of the deep south. 19 records including pieces by Otha Turner, Napoleon Strickland, RL Boyce, Sid Hemphill and others.  © 1996-2014, Dusty Groove, Inc.

Arhoolie, 1979. New Copy (reissue)
LP...$9.99 18.98
One of the youngest groups of the zydeco wave of the 70s – and one of the grooviest too!

Big Soul Of John Lee Hooker
Vee Jay, Early 60s. New Copy (reissue)
John Lee Hooker takes a step or two into the bluesy soul sound of the early 60s on this sweet set on Vee Jay – while style flaunting his true blues pedigree really, really well! The grit of his voice is as heavily emotive and unshakable as ever – backed by a crack combo on drums, ... LP, Vinyl record album
Yazoo, Late 20s. New Copy (reissue)
He may be blind, but he's plenty satisfied – and so are we, with this excellent package of rare 78rpm recordings from Willie Johnson! The sound quality is great – which is important, as Willie's got a style of guitar that's almost lighter in tone than some of his contemporaries – ... LP, Vinyl record album
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! ...
