Roy HawkinsBad Luck Is Falling ... CD
Ace (UK), Late 40s/1950s/Early 60s. New Copy ... $11.99 18.99
Stunning sounds from a blues singer that hardly ever got his due – but who we'd rank right up there with the 50s best singers like Pee Wee Crayton or Smokey Hogg! Like both of those singers, Roy Hawkins has a way of blending older roots with postwar touches that include a bit of jazz – ... read more CD

Smokey HoggServe It To The Right – The Combo & Modern Recordings 1947 to 1952 ... CD
Modern/Ace (UK), Late 40s/Early 50s. New Copy ... $11.99 18.99
A great second chapter of work from Smokey Hogg's years at the Modern Records label – material that's got a bit more of a west coast polish than the rootsy vibe of his previous sides! Smokey still has plenty of Texas in his vocals and work on guitar, but the arrangements here often emphasize ... read more CD

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 HookerCoast To Coast Blues Band/Anywhere-Anyplace-Anytime ... LP
United Artists, 1950s. Very Good+ Gatefold ... $16.99
Early recordings by John Lee Hooker and his Coast To Coast Blues Band – recorded in Detroit in the late 40s through the early 50s. The Coast To Coast Blues Band may be a little misleading in the title, as the recordings find Hooker with only the sparest accompaniment on bass, drums, and ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

BGO/ABC (UK), 1974. New Copy ... $16.99 19.98
Fantastic stuff from John Lee Hooker, and a record that's unlike any other he's ever done! The groove is very hard and funky, with tight drumbreaks and excellent basslines that you'd hardly expect to find on an album by a blues artist – jamming around with a tight groove that really makes us ... read more CD

Crown/Southern Routes, 1963. New Copy ... $15.99 18.99
About as classic as you can get for the legendary John Lee Hooker – a set of recordings from his early postwar years that perfectly define the special touch and electric genius of his music! The sound here is often as spare as rural acoustic blues from years back – but Hooker's using ... 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

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
