LP, Vinyl record album

One of the earliest albums on Arhoolie Records – an amazing document of steel guitar bluesman Black Ace! Ace plays just like he sits on the cover – really leaning into the instrument in ways that bring out all these cool, deep inflections – completely hypnotizing on their own, with almost an unworldly feel at points – and accompanied by vocals on most tracks. Titles include "Drink On Little Girl", "Bad Times Stomp", "Farther Along", "Evil Woman", "Fore Day Creep", "Little Augie", and "Golden Slipper". (Super-heavy pressing – just like an original – and with a bonus download card too! Also features a reproduction of the original notes!)  © 1996-2014, Dusty Groove, Inc.

Sutro Park, 1965. New Copy (reissue)
Vintage work from Mississippi Fred McDowell – an album recorded in the mid 60s, but with a feel that's pretty darn timeless overall!

Arhoolie, 1979. New Copy (reissue)
LP...$9.99 18.98
One of the youngest groups of the zydeco wave of the 70s – and one of the grooviest too! The group's got a solid swing and sense of soul that goes beyond most of their contemporaries – almost a deeper current of blues at most points, especially in the guitar – and even in some of ...

East River, 1920s. New Copy
Not just another collection of rare material from 78rpm recordings – and instead, a great little set that's definitely got a personality of its own! The package presents rare work from the collections of 78 diggers Jerry Zolten and Robert Crumb – the latter of whom created some great ... LP, Vinyl record album
Low Down Dirty Blues
Mainstream, Early 60s. New Copy (reissue)
An unusual 70s release of work from Lightnin Hopkins – one with a cryptic photo of Hopkins behind bars! The material is most likely from earlier years, though – and it captures Lightnin at his best folk blues mode – just vocals and acoustic guitar on most numbers, the latter ... 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
King/Sundazed, 1962. New Copy (reissue)
Hardly the surf album you might expect from the title – although the set is a killer batch of guitar instrumentals – with more than enough power to blow any west coast groups right off the beach! At this early point in his career, Freddie King is way more than just a blues guitarist, ... LP, Vinyl record album
Sittin Here Thinkin
Muse, Late 50s. New Copy (reissue)
Great gritty sides from the mighty John Lee Hooker – material with a slightly obscure origin, but recorded in the late 50s, right in a stretch when he was cutting some of his classics! Hooker's guitar and vocals are center stage – both growling with a hell of a lot of soulful power ... 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
Raining In My Heart
Excello, Early 60s. New Copy (reissue)
Classic work from Slim Harpo – an album that kicks off with one of his biggest hits ever, and follows with plenty of great tunes as well! Things here are pretty rootsy and stripped-down – lots of spare, slowish rhythms (but a few funkier ones too!) – and instrumentation that's ... LP, Vinyl record album
Munster (Spain), Late 50s/Early 60s. New Copy 2LP Gatefold
That's "Pippermint Twist" – not the more familiar "Peppermint Twist" from the US scene of the early 60s – and that slight difference is a really great way to sum up the sounds on this mighty cool set! Lots of the tunes are familiar, but a bit offbeat too – raw ... LP, Vinyl record album
Caprice (Sweden), 1968/1971. New Copy 2LP Gatefold
Never heard music from Don Cherry's important time in Sweden – two different live recordings that explode with righteous power right from the very first note! Cherry really took off musically during his time in Sweden – exploring rich new ideas that had never come up in his music with ... LP, Vinyl record album
Madlib Invazion, 2013. New Copy
The full length debut of Madlib as the Rock Konducta is a doozy – and 'Lib sounds as distinctly mad as ever – utilizing prog and psych samples, along with his usual bottomless reserve of funky building blocks, to craft one of his finest hip hop instrumentals sets in quite a while! 19 ...
