Deep-burning Chicago blues from Corey Dennison – one of the few contemporary players who can still hold onto the electric fire from that moment when the Windy City scene first broke wide to much larger national appeal!

Doctor Ross – The Harmonica BossMemphis Breakdown ... CD
Sun/ORG, Mid 50s. New Copy ... $8.99 11.98
Doctor Ross is definitely the harmonica boss – one of those key postwar blues musicians who made his instrument as important to the scene as the guitar was back in the 20s and 30s! The music here was all recorded by Sun Records, but is a lot more raw and stripped-down than some of the more ... read more CD

The title certainly gets it right – because although Champion Jack Dupree recorded some rootsier blues in his time, the music here is all pretty upbeat and rocking – and includes a fair bit of unissued titles recorded for RCA's Groove and Vik labels in the 50s!

Two sweet slices of work from the great Lowell Fulson – plus some bonus tracks too! The set begins with late 60s recordings that made up the album Lowell Fulson Now – very nice work from Lowell Fulsom – strongly in the mode of his Tramp album for Kent, with a mix of blues and ... read more CD

Some of the best R&B you could ever buy! Wynonie Harris was one of the all-time greats – a raw, raunchy, hard-rockin singer who was getting into more trouble with the law, ladies, and booze than most 70s rock groups combined!

John Lee Hooker takes the stage at Newport – in a stripped-down setting that's perfect for the famous folk fest!
