LP, Vinyl record album


4.80 46

A great collection of the earliest work of Blind Willie McTell – all recordings made in Atlanta between 1927 and 1929 – served up in a wonderfully spare style that really showcases Willie's work on vocals and guitar! The latter "sings" as much as the former here – often with these inflections that are completely sublime, and almost more compelling than the notes themselves – and there's a harmony between the instrument and the voice that really seems to expand the power of the tunes, even with such a simple presentation. Titles include "Statesboro Blues", "Stole Rider Blues", "Mr McTell Got The Blues", "Come On Around To My House Mama", "Love Changing Blues", and "Drive Away Blues".  © 1996-2014, Dusty Groove, Inc.

Mississippi, Late 20s/1930s/1940s/Early 50s. New Copy
Deep, lost, or long-buried blues and gospel records from the old days – creaky 78s that creep deep into the soul – beautiful stuff from Lottie Kimbrough, Robert Petway, the Anglin Brothers and more!

Big Legal Mess/Fat Possum, 1966. New Copy
Wicked early work from Junior Kimbrough – sides that are quite different than some of his better-known recordings over the years! The material was cut in Memphis in 1966 by producer Quinton Claunch – and it's got a spare, rootsy quality that's totally great – slow moving drums ... LP, Vinyl record album

Herald, 1954. New Copy (reissue)
Lightnin Hopkins at his best – a set that rings out with all his bold electric tones on the guitar, yet which also has the moody, stripped-down feel of a blues recording from a few decades before! The electricity really does a lot to deepen the tone – both in the echo from Hopkins' ... LP, Vinyl record album

Groove Merchant, 1971. New Copy (reissue)
A fitting title to this one – as it virtually describes the standard that the blues business was operating on during the early 70s – as artists came out of the shadows and found big audiences on college campuses, rock clubs, and other crossover scenes! The concept is carried to the Nth ... LP, Vinyl record album

Yazoo, 1927/1928. New Copy (reissue)
Two years might be a short time for any artist to be in their "prime" – but the quality of these sides is so strong, they've supported the reputation of Furry Lewis for many many years! The set features wonderful low-key material recorded for 78s in the years 1927 and 1928 – ... LP, Vinyl record album

Checker, 1960. New Copy (reissue)
Have guitar, will travel – and back in the day, Bo Diddley was going pretty darn far with great material like this!

Numero, Mid 70s. New Copy 2 LPs Gatefold
Really great work from Ned Doheny – an overlooked talent on the LA scene of the 70s – one who had the tightest, smoothest touches of the best of the AOR generation – but a surprising undercurrent of soul as well! Ned's got that unique blend we find in a rare few artists from the ... LP, Vinyl record album

Atlantic/Music On Vinyl (UK), 1968. New Copy (reissue)
One of our favorite Atlantic albums by the great Yusef Lateef – an incredible session that has him dipping back into his earlier exotic roots with those great reed styles of the early 60s – yet also hitting a mix of soul and funk like some of his other albums from the time! The sound ... LP, Vinyl record album

BBC/Music On Vinyl (Netherlands), 1968. New Copy (reissue)
A incredible and innovative batch of late 60s sound library grooves from the BBC Radiophonic Workshop – short bits of forward-thinking electronic music!
