LP (Item 617221) Arhoolie, 1964 — Condition: New Copy

Out Of Stock

LP, Vinyl record album


4.60 46

Delta blues, recorded right near their source – an early Mississippi recording by Arhoolie Records – one that captures Mississippi Fred McDowell at his best! Fred's mostly on acoustic guitar, alongside his tremendous vocals – really stretched-out, well-inflected lyrics that could well stand enough on their own – but a few tracks feature a spare electric, sounding almost equally rootsy! Mrs McDowell sings on one track – and titles include "Black Minnie", "Fred's Worried Life Blues", "61 Highway", "I Heard Somebody Call", "My Trouble Blues", and "That's Alright". (Super-heavy pressing – just like an original – and with a bonus download card too!)  © 1996-2014, Dusty Groove, Inc.

The incredible mid 60s album from blues singer and harp blower Junior Wells and his Chicago Blues Band with Buddy Guy!

Fat Possum/Big Legal Mess, Early 80s. New Copy
Rare Mississippi blues from Ranie Burnette – recorded in the early 80s, but with a timeless style that takes us right back to the delta!

Two Steps From The Blues
Duke, 1961. New Copy (reissue)
An incredible record from Bobby Blue Bland – and quite possibly the greatest one he ever made! The set's got an amazing something special that's unlike most other material of the time – a bit blues, but a lot of soul too – still with some echoes of R&B in the jazzier charts ...

Chess, 1971. New Copy (reissue)
Funky Bo Diddley – one of Bo's key early 70s sessions for Chess Records – all of which have him stepping out in a much harder groove than years past! The sound here is relatively tight – with Diddley guitar and vocals on top of some larger arrangements from Bob Gallo – ... LP, Vinyl record album
