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.

Set Me Free (with bonus tracks)
Delmark, 1983. New Copy
An excellent early 80s session from guitarist Steve Freund – recorded on the indie side of the Chicago scene, and a key debut for the vocals of Gloria Hardiman! Gloria's definitely a blues singer, but her phrasing is almost more deep soul at times too – a really rich voice that was ... CD

Varese, Early 60s. New Copy
CD...$8.99 11.98
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

ABC/Universal, 1970. New Copy
BB King hips up his groove a bit here – picking up some of the crossover soul and rock touches used by contemporaries over at Chess/Cadet, and expanding his sound with a range of guests that include Leon Russell, Joe Walsh, and Carole King! Despite the presence of these bigger names, the set' ... 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

Ace (UK), Early 50s. New Copy 3CD
A massive 3CD look at the key early years of Elmore James – a package that's overflowing with great work by one of the greatest blues guitarists of the 50s! The set starts way back at James' roots in Mississippi, with some sweetly rough-edged recordings that still sparkle with incredible ... 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

Howlin Wolf Album
Cadet/Get On Down, 1968. New Copy
A killer album of funky blues – recorded by Howlin Wolf during the period when Chess/Cadet was backing its older artists up with some of the newer funk musicians it had working in its studios! The overall sound works quite well – and although purists at the time moaned at the way ... 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
