More Blues On The South Side (with bonus track)

CD (Item 615990) Prestige, 1965 — Condition: New Copy
Out Of Stock

CD


4.50 46

Smoking blues from Billy Boy Arnold – an artist who never got the fame as some of the bigger acts on Chess Records in the 60s – but who could certainly cook with the best Chicago electric sound! Arnold sings and plays guitar on the record – with a bold, upfront quality that easily makes the record one of the best in this series on Prestige – thanks in part to backing from a youthful group that includes Mighty Joe Young on guitar and Lafayette Leake on piano! Titles include "School Time", "Evaleena", "I Love Only You", "Two Drinks Of Wine", "Billy Boy's Blues", and "You Better Cut That Out". CD features the bonus track "Playing With The Blues".  © 1996-2014, Dusty Groove, Inc.

ABC/Traffic, 1968. New Copy
One of the first records to feature BB King's famous guitar, Lucille, in the spotlight – an instrument he'd played for years, but which took on legendary status over the decades! The guitar's handled perfectly here by King – with a tone that still holds on to all the gritty edges of ... CD

Chess, 1959. New Copy
2 blues classics from the great Howlin Wolf – back to back on a single CD! First up is the self-titled Howlin Wolf – a record that has Wolf tightening it up a bit from his earliest years at Chess, and moving into a groove that would forever make him one of the key artists to record for ... CD

RCA/Made In Germany (Germany), 1976. New Copy
A mad bit of music from the great Bo Diddley – recorded after his early 70s funk records on Chess – but with a similar genre-tripping style! The album's got this full-on fuzzy feel right from the start – put together by producer Ron Terry, who matches Diddley's wilder side with ... CD

Greatest Hits
Jewel/Fuel 2000, Mid 60s. New Copy
Chicago blues, with a dose of soul – and a smoking set of early Jewel label recordings by George "Wild Child" Butler – most of which were produced by the legendary Willie Dixon! The tunes here have that gritty groove you might know from Chicago electric work on Chess – ... CD

Electric Mud
Chess/MCA, 1968. New Copy
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! You know, in the immediate years after this one (and similar funky blues albums on Chess/Cadet) was released, ... CD

Checker (Japan), 1969. New Copy
One of the funkiest albums ever cut by Little Milton – done at the end of the 60s with some hard Chicago soul arrangements from Gene Barge, and an overall style that mixes electric blues with some of the hard soul coming from the city's west side scene at the time! The album's much more of a ... CD

Varese, Early 60s. New Copy
Chicago blues, but of the grittier variety – not the more punched-up, polished work of the Chess Records and Vee Jay scene – but material by a host of older blues musicians who were still laying down some gritty styles in the 60s! Most numbers here almost verge on a folk blues mode ... CD

Live At Smalls
Smalls Live, 2014. New Copy
Tenorist Scott Hamilton has made countless great records for other labels over the decades, but he sounds especially nice in this debut for the Live At Smalls series – a setting that really lets him open up, take off, and craft some wonderfully extended solos! Hamilton's a creative talent in ... CD

Marcos Valle (1974)
Odeon/EMI (Japan), 1974. New Copy
An excellent album from Marcos Valle – and one of his rarest! The album is extremely hard to describe, but it's kind of a baroque extension of his groundbreaking work in the early 70s, with some of the best songwriting of his career, and majestic arrangements that sound great behind his ever- ...
