Excello/Ace (UK), Mid 50s. New Copy ... $11.99 18.99
The lesser-known "Lightnin'" of the postwar blues years – and a hell of a bluesman, heard here on some early sides for Excello Records! Lightnin Slim's got this raw, rootsy voice that's brimming with power – an approach that would have been great enough on its own, even with ... read more CD

A pair of Excello blues classics from the great Lightnin Slim – brought together on a single CD! First up is Rooster Blues – gritty blues, with a romping, almost rocking groove right from the start – the kind of back/forth energy we might expect to hear more from Jimmy Reed at ... read more CD

Magic SamBlack Magic (remastered edition – with bonus tracks) ... CD
Delmark, 1968. New Copy ... $11.99 15.99
Rough-edged blues from the west side of Chicago – a stone classic from the mighty Magic Sam – a player who was taken from us all too soon! On the west side, they mix plenty of soul in with their blues – and you can definitely hear that on this stone smoker – a record that ... 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!

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 Mayall's Blues BreakersBlues Breakers With Eric Clapton (2CD Deluxe Edition) ... CD
Deram/Universal (UK), 1966. Used 2CD ... $16.99
Possibly one of the best-remembered albums by John Mayall's legendary Blues Breakers combo – thanks to vocals and guitar from a young Eric Clapton! Clapton at this point is way fresher than in later years – not prone to cliches, and still coming across with a raw, edgey power that is ... (Rock, Blues) read more CD
