✨✧ Magic SamBlack Magic ... LP
Delmark, Late 60s. Very Good ... $16.99
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!

Magic SamLive At The Avant Garde – June 22, 1968 ... LP
Delmark, 1968. New Copy 2LP ... $15.99 24.99
A hell of a great record from Magic Sam – a really well-recorded live set from a small club in Milwaukee, and an album that really gets at all the gritty genius that made Sam so great! The set's almost equal parts blues and soul – definitely the former, but with plenty of funky ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Taj MahalMusic Keeps Me Together ... LP
Columbia, 1975. Very Good ... $2.99
A bit hipper and less bluesy than some of Taj's other work for Columbia – recorded with his Intergalactic Soul Messengers Band, and a sound that's slyly soulful – and flavored with reggae or otherwise Caribbean influenced rhythms! Music Keeps Me Together has a fairly loose feel, but ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

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 Mayall's Blues BreakersBare Wires ... LP
London, 1968. Very Good+ Gatefold ... $29.99
Another great step forward for the legendary John Mayall – proof that he was never just content to copy American blues modes, and always willing to bring something new to the table! Although steeped in sounds from the delta on up to Chicago, the record's also got a hipper, almost trippier ... (Rock, Blues) read more LP, Vinyl record album

Capitol/4 Men With Beards, 1970. New Copy (reissue)... $18.99 22.98
An incredible record from Mississippi Fred McDowell – a set that was issued on a big label, but which has a wonderfully rootsy feel throughout – in a way that almost out-does any work from the indie blues labels of the time!

Brownie McGheeJumpin The Blues ... LP
