Eddie Vinson/Jimmy WitherspoonBattle Of The Blues Vol 3 ... LP
King, Early 50s. New Copy (reissue)... $6.99 9.98
Wonderful early work from Eddie Cleanhead Vinson and Jimmy Witherspoon – both singers who had a strong connection to jazz over the years, but who work here in a nicely raw mode that befits the album's King Records placement! Vinson's a genius – a really overlooked singer who can effortlessly skirt jazz and blues, with a sophistication that was a huge precursor to the soul generation to come – and Witherspoon here is at the rawest side of his spectrum, with a vibe that's more LA postwar scene than some of his later material. Vinson sings "Featherbed Mama", "No Good Woman", "Ashes On My Pillow", "I Trusted You Baby", and "Somebody Done Stole My Cherry Red" – and Witherspoon sings "Sad Life", "Don't Tell Me Now", "The Last Mile", "24 Sad Hours", and "Highway To Happiness".

VariousRoot Hog Or Die Vol 2 – Sing Anything ... LP
Mississippi, 1940s/1950s/1960s. Near Mint- ... $9.99
A stunning tribute to the great Alan Lomax – the legendary musicologist, historian, and recording engineer who captured so many wonderful American sounds in the 20th Century! Lomax's work has been crucial to both the Library Of Congress and Smithsonian/Folkways Records – yet there's also a fair bit that has never seen the light of day before – amazing recordings that make up a surprisingly large part of this box set – which compiles work in many different styles recorded by Alan in the field – blues, folk, gospel, and global modes, plus compelling regional genres – all presented here in a special series! Titles on this second volume include "Cherry Ball Blues" by Skip James, "Downhearted Blues" by Son House, "Cindy" by Hobart Smith, "Sing Anything" by Neal Morris, "Como Las Propias Rosas" by Banda De Castello, "Nnuena" by Luigino Scolla & Pietro Guarassi, "Meet Me On The Road" by Beatrice Dick, and "Arkansas Traveler" by Elmer Barton.

✨✧ Eddie Cleanhead VinsonBald Headed Blues – His Complete King Recordings 1949 to 1952 ... CD
King/Ace (UK), Late 40s/Early 50s. New Copy ... 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".
