Joe TurnerBoss Of The Blues ... CD
Atlantic, Late 50s. Used ... $7.99
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". LP, Vinyl record album
