LP, Vinyl record album


5.00 46

Rootsy sounds from Henry Thomas – some great vintage recordings from the late 20s, with a feel that's quite different than more conventional blues from the time! Thomas definitely has a bluesy approach, but his use of the guitar is more strummy, almost folksy – as is his occasional accompaniment on a light flute, which is used as a whistle in between his well-inflected vocals. The whole thing's pretty great – almost as if Moondog teamed up with a blues singer – and titles include "Red River Blues", "Fishing Blues", "Fox & The Hounds", "Don't Ease Me In", "Railroadin Some", "Jonah In The Wilderness", and "Bull Doze Blues".  © 1996-2014, Dusty Groove, Inc.

Riverside/Original Blues Classics, 1960. New Copy (reissue)
Great rootsy blues from John Lee Hooker – and an unusual session that has him getting backup help from jazz players Sam Jones on bass and Louis Hayes on drums! Jones and Hayes only play on a handful of tracks, and most of the focus is on Hooker's damn-great vocals, and acoustic guitar – ... 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
1928 Sessions (180 gram pressing)
Yazoo, 1928. New Copy (reissue)
Vintage work from Mississippi John Hurt, but somehow amazingly clear and crisp in this classic LP presentation! The tunes are wonderfully earthy – just vocals and guitar from Hurt, in a style that's definitely blues, but which has some surprisingly jazzy inflections at times – at least ...

Blues (180 gram pressing)
Mainstream, 1950/1951. New Copy (reissue)
Great vintage recordings from Lightning Hopkins – initially recorded by producer Bob Shad on his trips to the south in the early 50s, then later issued on Shad's label Mainstream in the 60s! The style here captures Hopkins at his best – very spare and lowdown, with gritty guitar ... LP, Vinyl record album
Yazoo, Late 20s/Early 30s. New Copy (reissue)
Pivotal work from one of the first bluesmen to ever use "blind" in his name – sides recorded by the legendary Willie McTell when he was at the height of his powers! Most tracks here feature well-recorded vocals from Willie – especially for the time – a haunting ... LP, Vinyl record album
Rooster Blues
Excello, Late 50s. New Copy (reissue)
Gritty blues from the great Lightnin Slim – a set of tracks that has a romping, almost rocking groove right from the start – the kind of back/forth energy we might expect to hear more from Jimmy Reed at the time! The overall proceedings are definitely in a more rootsy mode, though ... LP, Vinyl record album
Burnin'
Vee Jay, 1962. New Copy (reissue)
Plenty of Burnin from John Lee Hooker, and about as classic as you can get for his Vee Jay years – especially considering that the album starts out with Hooker's killer cut "Boom Boom" – a number that may well have set fire to a whole generation of British and American rockers! ... LP, Vinyl record album
Peabody/Omnivore, 1976. New Copy
An under-discovered gem from the Memphis scene of the 70s – one of the few records ever by Sid Selvidge, a singer with an amazing pedigree! Sid had a varied career that included time as a soul DJ in the south, a Greenwich Village folkie, and a key part of the Ardent Studio scene in Memphis ... LP, Vinyl record album
