Lowell FulsomTramp Years ... CD
Kent/Ace (UK), Late 60s. New Copy ... $11.99 18.99
Funky blues from the great Lowell Fulsom! Lowell's best known to the world for his classic "Tramp", a tight funky number that virtually created a whole subgenre of soul, as Otis Redding and Joe Tex were quick to cut answer records to cash in on the action. Nobody could beat Lowell's ... read more CD

Lowell FulsonBlack Nights – The Early Kent Sessions ... CD
Ace (UK), Mid 60s. New Copy ... $11.99 18.99
Seminal mid 60s work from Lowell Fulson – a wicked blend of gritty soul and lots of southern bluesy touches! Fulson already had a good deal of experience under his belt by the time of these sides – including some killer 50s work for Chess Records – and he brings all that legacy ... read more CD

Lowell FulsonHung Down Head ... CD
Chess, 1950s. Used ... $6.99
Great early work from Lowell Fulson – tracks recorded in the 50s for Chess Records – all in Chicago, and a fair bit more obscure than some of Lowell's better-known sides from the 60s! There's still a nicely gritty groove going on here – a style that's rooted in blues, but which ... read more CD

Paul GaytenChess King Of New Orleans ... LP
Chess, Late 50s. Near Mint- ... $13.99
One of the first great R&B artists on the New Orleans scene in the 50s – and one who never got the same sort of fame as some of his contemporaries! Yet that doesn't stop Paul Gayten from being one of the greats – as you'll hear on this excellent collection that brings together a ... (Soul, Blues) read more LP, Vinyl record album

Ace (UK), Early 50s. New Copy ... $11.99 18.99
Roscoe Gordon was an R&B powerhouse in the 50s – an artist with a huge legacy of music that included records for Vee Jay, Chess, and Sun Records, and a singer who continued to have an impact for many decades to come! Yet Gordon may have sounded best right at the start of his career ... (Soul, Blues) read more CD

Lum GuffinLum Guffin – The Walking Victrola ... LP
Mississippi, 1973. New Copy (reissue)... $12.99
Rootsy blues from Lum Guffin – a musician who's got way more to offer than you might guess from the title! "Walking Victrola" makes us think of some sort of gimmicky artist – and instead, Lum's got this down home approach to acoustic blues that's every bit as great as some of ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

Atco/Friday Music, 1972. New Copy 2CD ... $21.99 29.99
We're not normally ones to rave about electric blues albums, but this one's a lot nicer than you might think – recorded with plenty of deep soul touches, and even a dose of funk in the right places! We hate to admit it, but a big part of the credit here goes to Eric Clapton – who ... read more CD

John HammondMirrors ... CD
Vanguard/Real Gone, 1967. New Copy ... $12.99 13.98
Great lost John Hammond material for Vanguard Records – tracks recorded from some of his earlier sessions for the label, but issued here as a great batch of material on their own! The strength of these tracks is undeniable – further proof that Hammond was really at home in the freedom ... (Rock, Blues) read more CD

✨✧ Harmonica FrankHarmonica Frank ... LP
Mississippi, Early 50s. New Copy ... $13.99
Amazing work from Harmonica Frank – an artist who recorded this firey sides for Sun Records in the early 50s! Frank's got this offbeat style that's definitely blues at the core, but which also has links to some of the novelty modes of the Appalachian scene – as he's not afraid to go ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

Slim HarpoRaining In My Heart ... CD
Excello/El Diablo, Early 60s. Used ... Just Sold Out!
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 CD

Slim HarpoSting It Then! – Historic 1961 Show ... CD
Excello/Ace (UK), 1961. New Copy ... $11.99 18.99
Mindblowing work from the legendary Slim Harpo – a live recording that seems to have Harpo sounding even sharper and funkier than on his famous studio sides for Excello Records in the 60s! Slim's really on fire here – riffing guitar with a super-tight band, but in a way that's never ... read more CD

Slim HarpoTip On In ... CD
Excello/Universal (Japan), 1968. New Copy ... $14.99
One of the last albums ever from the mighty Slim Harpo – but also one of the best, as the bluesman is giving plenty of nods to the funk and soul artists who were influenced by his music – and returning the favor with a wonderfully raw set of grooves! Slim's a master on all fronts ... read more CD
