Joe TurnerBoss Of The Blues ... CD
Atlantic, Late 50s. Used ... $3.99
Joe Turner returns to his roots, and lays down a fairly straight set of bluesy tunes from the old days of the Kansas City scene – done with a small jazz combo that includes work by Joe Newman, Lawrence Brown, Pete Brown, and Pete Johnson! After the raw hard R&B of Joe's bigger hit sides for Atlantic, the album's a compelling change – a reminder that Turner had roots that went much deeper than his rock and roll fame – and a depth of delivery that would keep his career strong, long after some of his 50s R&B contemporaries faded! The mix of modes – R&B and jazz – is a bit like some of the later Ray Charles albums on Atlantic – and tracks include "Low Down Dog", "Roll Em Pete", "Cherry Red", "How Long Blues", and "Morning Glories".

Skip JamesGreatest Of The Delta Blues Singers (180 gram blue vinyl pressing) ... LP
Melodeon/Sutro Park, 1964. New Copy (reissue)... About June 1, 2016
Tough mid 60s blues from Skip James – recorded by Richard Spottswood – and it's among Skip's best recordings! Greatest Of The Delta Blues Singers features recordings made in 1964 – at a time when James was being celebrated by the folk community – and it's also a time when he was in ailing health – which adds some incredible depth to the material – as if Skip's bluesy truth would ever be questioned! Includes "Hard Time Killin' Floor Blues", "Sick Bed Blues", "Devil Got My Woman", "Illinois Blues", "All Night Long", "Cherry Ball", "I Don't Want A Woman To Stay Out All Night Long" and more – plus the reissue bonus tracks "Skip's Worried Blues" and "Motherless & Fatherless".

✨✧ Eddie Cleanhead VinsonBald Headed Blues – His Complete King Recordings 1949 to 1952 ... CD
King/Ace (UK), Late 40s/Early 50s. New Copy ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
If you've never fully exposed yourself to the genius of Eddie Cleanhead Vinson, prepare to get your mind blown – because he's a hell of a singer, a hell of an alto saxophonist, and a massive R&B talent in these early sides for King Records! Eddie's work here easily rivals contemporary King Records greatness from Roy Brown and Wynonie Harris – but maybe tops them even more, given his strong work on his own horn – blown with the lusty fullness of a tenor, and balanced with Vinson's fantastic vocals – which, at their fullest, often feel like they're blowing a fuse in a similar style to his saxophone! This is the best collection we've ever seen of these tracks – presented with great notes, beautiful sound, and even a few unissued tracks – in a total of 26 titles that include "Ashes On My Pillow", "Eddie's Bounce", "No Good Woman Blues", "Somebody Done Stole My Cherry Red", "Wineola", "My Big Brass Bed Is Gone", "Queen Bee Blues", "Jump & Grunt", "Home Boy", "Time After Time", and "The People On My Party Line".
