French-only issue of early 60s recordings from blues singer and pianist Willie Mabon – recorded in Chicago in 1963 (hence the title) with backing from the band of Burgess Gardner, who we mostly know from funky 45s!

Willie MabonShake That Thing ... CD
Black & Blue (France), 1973. New Copy ... $11.99
A great date from this legendary Chicago musician – an artist who recorded in the early days for Chess Records, then seemed to find his most welcome recording home overseas on albums like this! The material is from a 1973 session in France, but has all the grit and growl of a Chicago ... read more CD

Taj MahalBrothers ... CD
Warner/Wounded Bird, 1977. New Copy ... $3.99 12.98
One of the better records that Taj Mahal cut during in the later 70s – probably because it was a soundtrack, and pushed the groove into some interesting places – with Taj's gruff vocals working over some Caribbean rhythms and modern blues, and more smoothed out moments! The latter ... read more CD

Taj MahalEvolution (The Most Recent) ... CD
Warner (Japan), 1978. New Copy ... $14.99
A well-titled set – given that the record really shows an evolution in the style of Taj Mahal! Some cuts are still in an older bluesy mode, but a few others feature some great backings from Leon Pendarvis – who creates this fuller, soaring sort of style that takes off with plenty of ... read more CD

Taj MahalMusic Fuh Ya ... CD
Warner (Japan), 1977. New Copy ... $14.99
A sweetly soulful set that has Taj Mahal really trying on some new flavors – yet still keeping things strongly in the bluesy territory of his roots! In addition to the lead vocals and lots of acoustic guitar, the set also features key contributions from Rudy Costa on a range of saxes, plus ... read more CD

Taj MahalTaj Mahal ... CD
Columbia, 1968. New Copy ... $5.99 6.99
The first album in a mighty legendary run from Taj Mahal – one of the first generation of blues musicians to really learn to recast their sound for the younger crossover generation! By that, we don't mean that Taj is commercial at all – it's just that he's kind of reclaiming the blues ... read more CD

John MayallBack To The Roots ... LP
Polydor, 1971. Very Good 2LP Gatefold ... $7.99
John Mayall's definitely getting back to his roots here – and he's also getting help from an all-star cast as well! Mayall's vocals and piano are in fine form – almost with a rough-edged Blues Breakers sort of vibe, but sometimes a bit funkier too – in ways that strongly show the ...

✨✧ John MayallBlues From Laurel Canyon ... LP
London, 1968. Very Good Gatefold ... $14.99
British blues meets LA's Laurel Canyon – a trans-Atlantic (or is it Pacific?) blend that makes for one of John Mayall's most compelling albums of the 60s! The album was recorded after the breakup of the Blues Breakers group – but it still features strong support from Mick Taylor on ... (Rock, Blues) read more LP, Vinyl record album
