Eddie Cleanhead VinsonCherry Red ... LP
Bluesway, Late 60s. Very Good+ ... $14.99
Eddie makes a nice little comeback here – singing in a style that's perhaps a bit rootsier than some of his classic sides, which actually had him working in a more sophisticated jazzy style – but which are still pretty nice, thanks to some good hard soul production. Titles include "Goodnight Baby Blues", "Juice Head Baby", "Cherry Red", "Cadillac Blues", and "Somebody's Got To Go". LP, Vinyl record album
(Light blue label pressing.)

Eddie Cleanhead VinsonBald Headed Blues – His Complete King Recordings 1949 to 1952 ... CD
King/Ace (UK), Late 40s/Early 50s. New Copy ... $10.99 18.99
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".

Eddie VinsonEddie Vinson Sings (Cleanhead's Back In Town) ... CD
Bethlehem, 1958. Used ... $6.99
Classic King R&B material from Vinson, featuring some great backing by a surprising amount of jazz players! The album includes playing by Frank Foster, Joe Newman, Charlie Rouse, Ed Thigpen, Freddie Green, Paul Quinichette, and Nat Pierce – and the sound owes a lot to Joe Turner's work with Basie. Titles include "Cherry Red", "That's The Way To Treat Your Woman", "Kidney Stew", "Hold It Right There", and "Your Baby Ain't Sweet Like Mine". Plus the CD reissue includes the following bonus tracks in stereo: "Trouble In Mind", "Kidney Stew", and "Hold It Right There". CD

✨✧ Mercy Dee WaltonPity & A Shame ... CD
Prestige/Original Blues Classics, 1961. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Rough, raw blues from Mercy Dee Walton – recorded in Berkley in the early 60s, but with an edge that takes us back to the Delta from a few decades before! Mercy Dee plays piano and sings – with spare accompaniment from Sidney Maiden on harmonica and Otis Cherry on drums – although about half the numbers here are solo, too! Titles include "Pity & A Shame", "Your Friend & Woman", "Shady Lane", "The Drunkard", and "After The Fight". CD
(Out of print.)
