A stone classic from Jimmy Reed – and one of the first few albums on the Vee Jay label! The sound is spare, rootsy, and bluesy – the kind of tunes that made Jimmy an instant favorite, and which were a key force in the Chicago blues sound of the 50s. The set features material recorded for Vee Jay in 1958 and 1957, with Jimmy on vocals, acoustic guitar, and harmonica. Titles include "Honest, I Do", "You Got Me Dizzy", "Can't Stand To See You Go", "Boogie In The Dark", "You Got Me Crying", "Little Rain", "Roll & Rhumba", his classic "Ain't That Lovin' You Baby" and more. Benchmark late 50s Chicago blues! This great 2CD remastered edition is loaded up – disc two featuring a whopping 22 bonus tracks of rarities – plus great little booklet with session notes, photos and more. Bonus disc tracks include "Jimmy's Boogie", "Rockin' With Reed, "You Upset My Mind", "Shoot My Baby", "State Street Boogie", "Come Love", "Meet Me", "Sugar, Sugar, "Lookin' For You, Baby", "Don't Think I'm Through", "Left Handed Woman" and many more.  © 1996-2014, Dusty Groove, Inc.

Checker (Japan), 1969. New Copy
One of the funkiest albums ever cut by Little Milton – done at the end of the 60s with some hard Chicago soul arrangements from Gene Barge, and an overall style that mixes electric blues with some of the hard soul coming from the city's west side scene at the time! The album's much more of a ... 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
