✨✧ Junior KimbroughFirst Recordings (10 inch LP) ... LP
Big Legal Mess/Fat Possum, 1966. New Copy ... $12.99 15.98
Wicked early work from Junior Kimbrough – sides that are quite different than some of his better-known recordings over the years! The material was cut in Memphis in 1966 by producer Quinton Claunch – and it's got a spare, rootsy quality that's totally great – slow moving drums ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

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!

✨✧ Albert KingBorn Under A Bad Sign ... LP
Stax, 1967. Near Mint- ... Just Sold Out!
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

Ace (UK), Early 60s. New Copy ... $11.99 18.99

BB KingBlues Is King (180 gram pressing) ... LP
ABC/Elemental (Spain), 1967. New Copy (reissue)... $18.99
A 60s set from Memphis bluesman BB King – but one put together with a very distinct Chicago touch as well! The set's produced by Johnny Pate, and recorded live with a vibe that's similar to King's classic recording at The Regal – but it's almost got even more of a soulful punch, thanks ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

BB KingEasy Listening Blues (United) ... LP
United, Late 50s. Very Good+ ... $9.99
Hardly an easy listening album at all – given that the legendary BB King is at the height of his powers, and turns out some wonderful work throughout! However, there is one difference that might warrant the title – the set's all instrumental, and makes for an even greater focus on King' ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

Crown/Ace (UK), 1960. New Copy ... $6.99 14.99
The definitely got the title right here – as BB King is plenty great, and already a powerhouse in these early years of his career!

BB KingLA Midnight ... LP
ABC, 1972. Very Good- ... $6.99
BB King brings in a sweet dose of jazz to his work – just a touch of the funkier backings that some of his electric contemporaries were getting at the time – maybe not as hard-wailing as some of the Chess funky blues records, but definitely somewhere in that direction! Players on the ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

BB King not just live, but well-recorded in the studio too – in this classic ABC set that showcases both sides of his talents!

BB King live at the Cook County Jail in Chicago – and given the amount of great live shows going on in the institution during the early 70s, the jail must have been one hell of a place to be incarcerated!
