Big Bill BroonzyBlues (Scepter) ... LP
Scepter, 1952. New Copy (reissue)... Just Sold Out!
Rough and raw work from Big Bill Broonzy – well-done sides that feature Bill on vocals and acoustic guitar, recorded in Paris in the early 50s, and issued here in a US package on the Scepter label! There's a pretty earthy feel to most of the tracks – a real "crossroads" feel ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

RL BurnsideMississippi Hill Country Blues (with bonus download) ... LP
Fat Possum, Early 80s. New Copy (reissue)... $12.99 17.98
An album recorded in the Netherlands, but a set that hits right to the heart of RL Burnside's Mississippi roots – thanks to a beautifully spare, careful presentation of the music! Most numbers feature just Burnside on vocals and guitar – with a vibe that's similar to the field ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

Elizabeth CottenElizabeth Cotton Vol 2 – Shake Sugaree (180 gram yellow vinyl pressing) ... LP
Folkways, Mid 60s. New Copy (reissue)... $18.99 21.99
Elizabeth Cotten was 73 when she cut this classic set for Folkways Records – brought into the studio under the guidance of Mike Seeger, and sounding maybe more youthful here than some of the younger female folkies at the time! The set's got a crispness that really belies Cotten's age – ... (Folk/Country, Blues) read more LP, Vinyl record album

Folkways, 1965. New Copy (reissue)... $18.99 22.80
Elizabeth Cotten is one of those true Folkways artists who seems especially well-suited to the label's legendary style of presentation – as the clear, clean sound of the recording brings her brilliance to an audience she might never have reached otherwise! The set was recorded and conceived ... (Folk/Country, Blues) read more LP, Vinyl record album

Biograph/Sutro Park, 1971. New Copy (reissue)... $18.99 22.99
Late recordings by Reverend Gary Davis – purportedly his last recordings, and wonderfully spiritual material from the blues guitar great! It was done in NYC in March of '71 and served as his first studio session in a handful of years, though he performed regularly. It's a mix of spiritual ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

Bo DiddleyBo Diddley (180 gram pressing) ... LP
Checker/Sundazed, 1958. New Copy ... $23.99 24.98
Fantastically twangy! We never tire of Bo Diddley's incredible guitar work – and you'll get plenty of it in this early album he cut for Chess, a tasty batch of 12 tracks, all original tunes with a stripped-down gutbuckety sound – rough, raw rhythms that feature plenty of Bo's gritty ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

T-Model FordBad Man (with bonus download) ... LP
Fat Possum, 2002. New Copy (reissue)... $12.99 18.99
A key classic from the Fat Possum label – one of those records in which the imprint really lives up to its southern roots promise, and it's great work of turning up lost heroes from the blues underground! The set features T-Model Ford on raspy vocals and equally raspy guitar – stomping ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

Lum GuffinLum Guffin – The Walking Victrola ... LP
Mississippi, 1973. New Copy (reissue)... $12.99
Rootsy blues from Lum Guffin – a musician who's got way more to offer than you might guess from the title! "Walking Victrola" makes us think of some sort of gimmicky artist – and instead, Lum's got this down home approach to acoustic blues that's every bit as great as some of ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Slim HarpoRaining In My Heart ... LP
Excello, Early 60s. New Copy (reissue)... Just Sold Out!
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 ... read more LP, Vinyl record album
Also available Raining In My Heart ... CD 4.99

Arhoolie, 1969. New Copy (reissue)... $18.99 20.99
A killer late 60s Chicago blues set from Earl Hooker – one of his best!

John Lee HookerBoogie Chillun ... LP
Fantasy, Early 60s. New Copy 2LP (reissue)... $22.99 24.99
Sublime live work from John Lee Hooker – a set that features the legend on solo guitar and vocals, but recorded at a level that's even crisper and more personal than some of his other albums from the time! The performance is clearly pitched more towards the folk blues audience of the time, ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ John Lee HookerI Feel Good ... LP
Paula, 1969. New Copy (reissue)... $9.99
Gritty work from John Lee Hooker – a set recorded at the end of the 60s in Paris, at a time when that city was playing host to some of the hippest blues work of the decade! The style here is very much like John Lee Hooker of a decade before – simple, stark, and unadorned – with a ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

John Lee HookerOn The Waterfront ... LP
Wand, Late 60s. New Copy (reissue)... $9.99
A really unique album from the great John Lee Hooker – done for the mostly-soul Wand Records label, and with a feel that's quite different than some of Hooker's other records! There's a distinctly jazzy undercurrent running through the record at times – sometimes with some moody, ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Lightnin HopkinsBlue Lightnin' ... LP
Jewel, 1965. New Copy (reissue)... $9.99
A really nice later set from legendary Texas blues titan Sam "Lightnin'" Hopkins – done up for the Jewel label with a bit of the spark that was missing from the hit & miss work he did earlier in the decade for Bluesville! Blue Lightnin' also has a down and dirty style in spots, ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Lightnin HopkinsBlues ... LP
Mainstream, 1950/1951. New Copy (reissue)... $9.99
Great vintage recordings from Lightning Hopkins – initially recorded by producer Bob Shad on his trips to the south in the early 50s, then later issued on Shad's label Mainstream in the 60s! The style here captures Hopkins at his best – very spare and lowdown, with gritty guitar ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

Lightnin HopkinsBlues In My Bottle ... LP
Prestige/OBC, 1961. New Copy (reissue)... $16.99 19.99
One the best of the Lightnin Hopkins records for Prestige in the early 60s – unaccompanied here, just as a lot of his most ardent admirers prefer – and it really is deeply effective work! Truth be told, we love the records from the period in which he's got a spare bit of studio backing, ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
Lightnin HopkinsGreat Electric Show & Dance ... LP
Jewel, 1969. New Copy (reissue)... $9.99
Classic blues from Lightnin Hopkins – a set that's far rootsier than you might expect from the "electric show" in the title! Hopkins plays mostly acoustic guitar here – and sings with very spare backing overall – just a bit of keyboards, bass, and drums, plus some ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

Lightnin HopkinsLast Night Blues with Sonny Terry (180 gram pressing) ... LP
Bluesville/4 Men With Beards, 1961. New Copy (reissue)... $18.99 22.98
Maybe one of the greatest settings we've ever heard for Sonny Terry – as the record's a nicely stripped-down gem that presents Lightnin Hopkins at his best! Lightnin plays guitar with a rhythmic vibe and spins out these effortless lyrics throughout – that almost-conversational style ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

Lightnin HopkinsLightnin Hopkins Sings The Blues ... LP
Southern Routes, Late 40s. New Copy ... $15.99 18.99
An incredible collection of early material from the mighty Lightnin Hopkins – just the kind of sounds that made him an earthshaker right from the start! Hopkins hardly needs anyone but himself to put over the message here – as his guitar work is mindblowing, and his vocals have a raw ... read more LP, Vinyl record album
