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!

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

Fat Possum/Epitaph, 1968. New Copy
Astoundingly strong early recordings by Mississippi blues hero RL Burnside – with violence-tinged songs performed with a clearer, though no less tough voice than we heard on the songs that made him a bit more famous in 1990s!

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!

They're not lying with the title of this one – as the set's a killer collection of rural blues, with a legacy that goes way beyond the glory days of the genre in the 20s and 30s! The collection's a great one from Mississippi – exactly the kind of pre-LP material that the label's been ... 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
