4.90 46

A cooker from this Chicago living legend – and proof that the passage of time hasn't dimmed the talents of Eddie Campbell at all! Eddie's firmly in the lead on vocals and guitar – plus a bit of harmonica, too – and the setting is mostly stripped-down, with the kind of no-nonsense contemporary blues production you'd expect from Delmark – almost a back-to-basics mode that really fits the music. Lurrie Bell guests on a few tracks – and titles include "Brownout", "I Do", "Call My Mama", "I Don't Understand This Woman", "Boomerang", "Starlight", "All My Life", "Skin Tight", and "My Friend".  © 1996-2014, Dusty Groove, Inc.

Troubles
Delmark, 1979. New Copy
One of the rootsiest albums ever cut by Delmark Records – a late 70s set from this obscure Chicago duo, partially recorded at a small club on the south side! John and Sylvia Embry are a great antidote to some of the tighter, slicker blues that was dominating the Windy City by the late 70s ... CD

Delmark, 1968. New Copy
A hell of a great record from Magic Sam – a really well-recorded live set from a small club in Milwaukee, and an album that really gets at all the gritty genius that made Sam so great! The set's almost equal parts blues and soul – definitely the former, but with plenty of funky ... CD

Stoned Soul
Delmark, 2014. New Copy
Giles Corey is a bluesman at heart, but he plays here in a style that's got lots of soul and funk touches too – particularly in the way he works his guitar with lots of wah-wah style riffs! The record's got a contemporary blues vibe overall, but Giles definitely has a slightly different ... CD

Live In Japan 1974
Delmark, 1974. New Copy
Spare live material from the legendary Sleepy John Estes – a set that was recorded in Tokyo in the mid 70s, but wasn't issued in the US for many decades! Estes plays guitar and sings in a duo with harp player Hammie Nixon – who also sings a fair bit too, and creates this excellent ... 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

Duke, 1961. New Copy
An incredible record from Bobby Blue Bland – and quite possibly the greatest one he ever made! The set's got an amazing something special that's unlike most other material of the time – a bit blues, but a lot of soul too – still with some echoes of R&B in the jazzier charts ... CD

Chicago Deep
Ronn/P-Vine (Japan), Mid 70s/1985. New Copy
Chicago's plenty deep – something we've known for years, being Windy City lifers ourselves – but this set really gets at the special sound of the city's blues scene – especially some of the overlooked hybrids that were coming out of the underground in the 70s and 80s! At that ... CD

Warner/Wounded Bird, 1976/1977. New Copy 2 CDs
A trio of albums from Taj Mahal – and some unreleased live tracks as well! First up is Music Fuh Yah – a sweetly soulful set that has Taj Mahal really trying on some new flavors – yet still keeping things strongly in the bluesy territory of his roots! In addition to the lead ... CD

Chess (Japan), 1950s. New Copy
Great early work from Lowell Fulson – tracks recorded in the 50s for Chess Records – all in Chicago, and a fair bit more obscure than some of Lowell's better-known sides from the 60s! There's still a nicely gritty groove going on here – a style that's rooted in blues, but which ... CD

Can't Get No Grindin
Chess/Traffic, 1973. New Copy
Muddy Waters can't get no grinding – but that's hardly a problem, given the strength of this sweet early 70s set! The album marks Muddy's return to more basic Chicago blues after his funky electric period on Chess – but the set's still got some of the trippier touches of a few years ... CD

ABC/Real Gone, 1975. New Copy
A really unusual chapter in the career of the 5th Dimension – a mid 70s set recorded for ABC Records, but one that also has the group reunited with producer/arranger Jimmy Webb – who'd done so much for them in the 60s! The mode here is very different than before – bolder, more ... CD

Atlantic/Real Gone, Late 60s. New Copy 2CD
One of the greatest female soul groups of the 60s – and one of the few who really helped to take the format into deep soul territory! The Sweet Inspirations got their start doing background work for countless sessions for Atlantic Records – and by the time of these tracks, they'd ... CD
