4.50 46

Blues from the delta, beautifully compiled by the folks at Yazoo – in a classic collection that shows why they've always been one of the most trusted sources for music like this! The package really expands strongly on the sounds of Charlie Patton and Robert Johnson – both of whom are included, but featured with a host of contemporaries who really show the whole spectrum of this fertile scene during these crucial years. Titles include "Special Rider Blues" by Skip James, "Billy Goat Blues" by John Byrd, "Tallahatchie River Blues" by Mattie Delaney, "Delta Blues" by Son House, "Dead Shrimp Blues" by Robert Johnson, "Gang Of Brownskin Women" by Harvey Hull, and "Be True Be True Blues" by Henry Sims.  © 1996-2014, Dusty Groove, Inc.

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! You know, in the immediate years after this one (and similar funky blues albums on Chess/Cadet) was released, ... 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 complete recordings of East Texas bluesman Henry Thomas – only 23 titles in all, but quite a legacy to leave behind!

Yazoo, Late 20s/Early 30s. New Copy (reissue)
Robert Wilkins may not have been one of the biggest blues singers on the Memphis scene at the end of the 20s, but he was certainly one of the best – and a vocalist with a really amazing approach that predates countless other singers to come! Wilkins has this sense of vibrato that really ... 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 ...

Yazoo, Late 20s. New Copy (reissue)
He may be blind, but he's plenty satisfied – and so are we, with this excellent package of rare 78rpm recordings from Willie Johnson! The sound quality is great – which is important, as Willie's got a style of guitar that's almost lighter in tone than some of his contemporaries – ... LP, Vinyl record album
Yazoo, Late 20s. New Copy (reissue)
Key work from Blind Willie Johnson – a singer who only recorded for a few short years, but who left behind a tremendous legacy of music! Willie's got this unusual froggy style of singing that's unlike anyone else we've heard – except for maybe Clarence Henry – and it mixes ... LP, Vinyl record album
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
