Complete Recorded Works In Chronological Order – Volume 1 (180 gram vinyl)

LP (Item 643162) Document/Third Man, 1930s — Condition: New Copy
Out Of Stock

LP, Vinyl record album


4.90 46

15 early recordings by this legendary group – a southern string ensemble who nicely skirted the space between early blues and hillbilly music – heard here on a set of vintage 78rpm recordings done for the Okeh label! The package presents tracks recorded in February and June of 1930 – laid out in chronological order, and presented here with surprisingly great sound after all these years. The use of fiddle alone is worth the price of admission – especially amidst the rootsier elements in the rhythms – and titles include "Driving That Thing", "Alberta Blues", "The Sheik Waltz", "The Jazz Fiddler", "Jake Leg Blues", "Back To Mississippi", and "We Are Both Feeling Good Right Now".  © 1996-2014, Dusty Groove, Inc.

Document/Third Man, 1930/1931. New Copy
LP...$9.99 19.99
One of the most important string bands of the early 30s – heard here on some seminal sides recorded both in Texas and Mississippi! The Sheiks' approach was landmark at the time, and still has great resonance all these many years later – a real genre-crossing mix of blues and old-time ... LP, Vinyl record album

Black Magic
Delmark, Late 60s. New Copy (reissue)
Rough-edged blues from the west side of Chicago – a stone classic from the mighty Magic Sam – a player who was taken from us all too soon! On the west side, they mix plenty of soul in with their blues – and you can definitely hear that on this stone smoker – a record that ... LP, Vinyl record album

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

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!

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

Series Aphonos, 1967. New Copy
Vampire hunting never sounded so groovy – thanks to a sublime soundtrack by the legendary Krzysztof Komeda! The feel here is a bit like Komeda's better-known score for Rosemary's Baby – a blend of darker themes and lighter 60s styles – handled in a way that brings together ... LP, Vinyl record album

BBE (UK), 1970s. New Copy 2LP Gatefold
One of the coolest, hippest collections you could ever hope to find – not just the usual mix of vintage soul or obvious jazz tracks, but a wealth of wonderful work we never would have discovered otherwise! Mr Thing digs even deeper for this third volume than the previous two – working ... LP, Vinyl record album

Ninja Tune, 2014. New Copy 2LP Gatefold
Mr Scruff's always had a great way with a tune – and his underground work has reached a lot more ears than we ever expected over the years – but this time around he sounds even more focused and fluid than ever before – never commercial, but really pushing his freaky funky groove ...
