Bobby Blue BlandAin't Nothing You Can Do ... LP
Duke, 1964. Fair ... $9.99
Beautiful early soul stuff by one of the greatest singers ever. Bobby's young soulful voice is in top form on this set, and the LP includes such great cuts as "Ain't Nothing You Can Do", "I'm Gonna Cry", "Black Night", and "Steal Away". Very cool cover, too, with a cartoon of Bobby and some girl standing on opposite sides of a huge breaking heart! LP, Vinyl record album
(Original Duke pressing. Cover has split seams, pen & marker on both sides, with an address sticker and promo stamp on the back. Label has some pen.)

Bobby Blue BlandCall On Me (Bluesway pressing) ... LP
Duke/Bluesway, 1963/1973. Very Good ... $7.99
One of Bobby Blue Bland's best albums ever – a stunning mix of blues and soul that's the kind of killer stuff that will make you a fan of his forever! There's no beating Bland at this point in his career – and the record is one of the finest illustrations of the power he brought to his work, subtly balancing a sense of class with rootsier down-hominess that few other singers could ever handle so well. That blend allowed Bobby to reach out to way more audiences than most of his contemporaries – and it's still equally powerful today – and the album's arrangements by Joe Scott are impeccable, with a slight touch of jazz that we totally love. The album includes classics like "That's The Way Love Is", "Call On Me", "Cry Lover Cry", "Care For Me", "Bobby's Blues", and "Honky Tonk". This is the 70s version of the original album – and features a different cover than the original. LP, Vinyl record album
(Cover has a small cutout hole.)

Bobby Blue BlandTwo Steps From The Blues ... LP
Duke, 1961. New Copy (reissue)... $9.99
An incredible record from Bobby Blue Bland – and quite possibly the greatest one he ever made! The set's got an amazing something special that's unlike most other material of the time – a bit blues, but a lot of soul too – still with some echoes of R&B in the jazzier charts used for the backdrop, but presented with a rock-solid style that definitely points the way towards many sounds and styles to come in the 60s. And although Bland recorded many of these tracks as separate singles, there's a way they're put together here that makes the whole thing sound completely marvelous together – a really well-conceived track list that shows that Bobby's an even greater artist in the space of a full record. The arrangements are perfect, and Bobby's rough soulful voice is blended in this amazing way with killer horn arrangements that are far more sophisticated than most stuff that ever came after this, and which never get in the way, but only back up his deep emotion. The album's a motherlode of classics by the man, with gems that include "Two Steps From The Blues", "Cry Cry Cry", "I Don't Want No Woman", "I'm Not Ashamed", "Don't Cry No More", "Lead Me On", and "I Pity The Fool". And hell, even his version of "St James Infirmary" is pretty wonderful – something we never thought we'd say about that song. LP, Vinyl record album

Johnny MooreLonely Heart In The City ... CD
Grapevine (UK), Late 60s/Early 70s. New Copy ... $13.99 19.99
Sockin soul from an under-heard Chicago legend! Johnny Moore was one of the best deep soul singers in the Windy City scene of the late 60s – but an artist who only ever recorded singles across a variety of labels, so he's not as well remembered as album-oriented artists, like Syl Johnson or Tyrone Davis. Not that that's a problem, though – because in some way, it means that a CD like this is even more essential than finding the original vinyl! The set's really wonderful – and features Johnny belting out a huge range of original tunes – all with a care, confidence, and soulful depth that makes us wonder why he wasn't huge! The first-ever set like this of Johnny's work – with a total of 25 tracks, and great notes. Titles include "Lonely Heart In The City", "It May Be Tears Of Joy", "Sold On You", "You're The One To Blame", "It's All Over", "Just Be For Real", "That's What You Said", "What More Can I Do", "Spend The Rest Of My Life", and "Baby If You Let Me".

Yazoo, Late 20s/Early 30s. Used ... $7.99

✨✧ Big Mama ThorntonIn Europe (red vinyl pressing) ... LP
Arhoolie, 1965. New Copy (reissue)... $18.99 20.99
Big Mama Thornton may well be best-remembered as the woman who gave the world "Hound Dog" – which later catapulted Elvis to fame – but over the years she continued to be a hell of a singer, with a rich legacy of music that more than stands on its own! Witness this mid 60s performance from London – with the singer backed by small group instrumentation that includes Shakey Horton on harmonica, Eddie Boyd on piano and organ, and a young Buddy Guy on guitar – players who are definitely blues, but who often bring some slight funky soul currents to the music, too – which seems to give Thornton one of her best showcases ever on record. The album's a gem – maybe one of her best – and titles include "Down Home Shake Down", "Sweet Little Angel", "The Place", "Little Red Rooster", "Swing It On home", and "Session Blues". LP, Vinyl record album
(Limited edition of 500 – red vinyl pressing)

Joe TurnerReal Boss Of The Blues (with bonus tracks) ... CD
Flying Dutchman/Ace (UK), 1969. New Copy ... $11.99
One of the grooviest records ever cut by the legendary Joe Turner – a set that takes him far from his Kansas City roots, and his 50s R&B for Atlantic Records – into a mode that's maybe even more soul-based overall! The great Gene Page handles the backings here – with a tightness that comes from his years on the LA soul scene, and which mixes with the bluesier currents in the instrumentation to push Joe into some righteous late 60s grooves. Many tracks are older, but still have a cool new vibe – and the use of electric bass on the record really creates a nice sense of energy at the bottom. Titles include the ten minute "Plastic Man" – plus "Lonesome Train", "Careless Love", "Honey Hush", "How Long How Long Blues", and "Corrine Corrina". CD features two bonus live tracks – "Honey Hush" and "Yakety Yak". CD
