Big Bill BroonzyBlues (Scepter) ... LP
Scepter, 1952. New Copy (reissue)... $11.99
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 BurnsideWorried Blues (180 gram pressing – with bonus download) ... LP
Fat Possum, 1969. New Copy ... $12.99 17.98
Not the RL Burnside of later revival years – when he was maybe recorded a bit too much – but an album that captures the man right at the start of his career – when he was a young talent, but working in blues modes that were far beyond his age! The set features Memphis and ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

Fat Possum, Early 70s/Early 90s. New Copy (reissue)... $12.99 17.99
An excellent collection from Fat Possum Records – and one that shows the label's ongoing commitment to blues that goes way past the mainstream!

Reverend Gary DavisWorried Blues (180 gram pressing – with download) ... LP
Fat Possum, 1969. New Copy ... $12.99 17.98
The last studio album from the Reverend Gary Davis – and a set that was a great attempt to finally capture his talents in a well-recorded setting!

Champion Jack DupreeSings The Blues ... LP
King, Early 50s. New Copy (reissue)... $6.99 9.98
Early King Records material by Champion Jack Dupree – a hell of a pianist, and a heck of a great singer too – working almost as a raconteur on some of the best songs on this collection! The music has deep roots in New Orleans, where Jack must have really honed his piano skills – ... 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

Slim HarpoRaining In My Heart ... LP
Excello, Early 60s. New Copy (reissue)... $11.99
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

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 HookerJohn Lee Hooker Sings Blues – 16 Selections – Every One A Pearl (180 gram pressing) ... LP
King/Sundazed, 1960. New Copy (reissue)... $23.99 24.98
A monster from the great John Lee Hooker – an artist who isn't usually associated with King Records, but who issued this mighty collection of sides for the label at the start of the 60s! Most of the work dates from a few years before – gritty tracks that have Hooker at his best postwar ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ John Lee HookerThat's Where It's At! ... LP
Stax, 1969. New Copy (reissue)... $18.99 21.99
A fantastic pairing of soulful talents – the legendary John Lee Hooker on the mighty Stax Records – in a set that's a real standout in the career of both! The vibe here is different than the usual sound of Stax – not a Memphis-ized John Lee Hooker, but instead the kind of ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

John Lee Hooker/Sticks McGheeHighway Of The Blues ... LP
Audio Lab, Mid 50s. New Copy (reissue)... $6.99 9.98
Rare King Records material from these two postwar blues greats – each of whom get a single side of the record! Sticks McGhee really shines on side one – with that playful, jazzy approach to blues that he used on his late 40s recordings for Atlantic – almost somewhere in the ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ 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

Mississippi John Hurt1928 Sessions (180 gram pressing) ... LP
Yazoo, 1928. New Copy (reissue)... $14.99
Vintage work from Mississippi John Hurt, but somehow amazingly clear and crisp in this classic LP presentation! The tunes are wonderfully earthy – just vocals and guitar from Hurt, in a style that's definitely blues, but which has some surprisingly jazzy inflections at times – at least ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

JB Hutto & His HawksHawk Squat ... LP
Delmark, Late 60s. New Copy (reissue)... $12.99 19.99
One of the most dynamic, most on-fire blues albums recorded during the 60s by Delmark Records – a set that bursts right out of the Chicago clubs with the guitar of JB Hutto firmly in the lead! Hutto's a killer right from the start – singing and playing with a ferocity that easily ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

Skip JamesComplete 1931 Session (180 gram pressing) ... LP
Yazoo, 1931. New Copy (reissue)... $14.99
Exactly the kind of a record to show why Skip James was really a cut above most of his contemporaries – a bluesman who works here with a sense of darkness and foreboding that really sets a chill to most of his tunes! There's less of the usual short-term sadness and smaller complaints of ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Blind Willie JohnsonPraise God I'm Satisfied (180 gram pressing) ... LP
Yazoo, Late 20s. New Copy (reissue)... $14.99
He may be blind, but he's plenty satisfied – and so are we, with this excellent package of rare 78rpm recordings from Willie Johnson! The sound quality is great – which is important, as Willie's got a style of guitar that's almost lighter in tone than some of his contemporaries – ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

Junior KimbroughMeet Me In The City ... LP
Fat Possum, 1990s. New Copy ... $12.99 17.98
Raw, intimate Junior Kimbrough recordings, mostly from the early 90s, a number of which were recorded at home – and for the all hiss and murk of the recording quality, the intimacy and realness of the voice, guitar and the man's presence alone make up for it! Spare, lonely blues from Junior ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

Albert KingBorn Under A Bad Sign (180 gram pressing) ... LP
Stax, 1967. New Copy (reissue)... $19.99 21.99
One of THE electric blues records of the 60s – a seminal set by Albert King that was probably blasted out of more college dorm rooms than southside juke joints, but which still more than deserves its due! The set was recorded by Stax with a nice raw sound – guitar very much upfront, ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

Freddie KingFreddie King Is A Blues Master ... LP
Cotillion, 1969. New Copy (reissue)... $15.99
They got the title right on this one – and the album's a smoking batch of tunes that captures Freddie in all his guitar-driven glory!

Cotillion/Music On Vinyl (UK), 1970. New Copy (reissue)... $25.99 29.99
Sweet electric blues from Freddie King – and a record that features a surprising set of arrangements from Donny Hathaway! The album's more Freddie's than Donny's, but it's a great meeting of the two talents under the Atlantic-endorsed Cotillion banner – served up with an unusual studio ... read more LP, Vinyl record album
