Fred McDowellFred McDowell Vol 2 (blue vinyl pressing) ... LP
Arhoolie, 1965. New Copy (reissue)... About July 1, 2016 (delayed)
Raw North Mississippi blues from Fred McDowell – some of best of the 60s – or any other era! Recorded on portable equipment in 1964 and 1965 sessions in Como and Holy Springs, MS and Berkeley, CA – and capturing the buzz of his guitar and grain in his voice so beautifully! A couple tracks feature a second guitar, and just one has additional voices, allowing McDowell to hook you on his own – and he doesn't let go. Fantastic stuff. Includes "I Ain't Gonna Be Bad No More", "Where Were You", "Do My Baby Ever Think Of Me", "Bull Dog Blues", "Red Cross Store Blues", "You Got To Move", "I Wish I Was In Heaven Sittin Down", "Frisco Lines", "I Looked At The Sun" and more. 12 tracks in all. (Blues, Folk/Country) LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ VariousI'll Be So Glad When The Sun Goes Down – Field Recordings From Alan Lomax's Southern Journey ... LP
Mississippi, 1959/1960. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A beautiful collection of Alan Lomax field recordings from the southern US at the end of the 50s/dawn of the 60s – Lomax's legendary Southern Journey – in which he set out to document the still made southern folk music that had decades earlier influenced the jazz and blues that changed popular music in the US forever! Lomax travelled throughout the American South with the support and resources of Atlantic Records, essentially proving that traditional American folk music – mountain songs, work songs, weary ballads, spirituals and more songs of the poor was still being made. Many of the recordings went on to be released in the early 60s on Atlantic's Southern Folk Heritage series, and many more on the Prestige label. Selections from those, as well as some previously unreleased tracks are on this great vinyl series on Mississippi. Compiled and annotated by Nathan Salsburg. Includes "Clarksdale Mill Blues" by John Dudley, "I'll Be So Glad When The Sun Goes Down" by Ed Lewis & Prisoners, "Bangin Breakdown" by Hobart Smith, "Woke Up This Morning" by Fred McDowell, "Joseph Looney" by Ollie Gilbert, "Lazarus" by Henry Morrison, "The Juice Of the Forbidden Fruit" by Neal Morris and more. LP, Vinyl record album
