Jimmy RushingFive Feet Of Soul ... CD
Colpix/Warner (Japan), 1963. New Copy ... $14.99
One of Jimmy Rushing's last truly great albums – a jazz-tinged session of bluesy material, one that gets at his best work of the 50s! The arrangements are by Al Cohn, and have a fluid swing that pushes Jimmy past cliche – working with players that include Zoot Sims, Budd Johnson, Freddie Green, and Gene Quill in a style that's got all the leaner touches of the Basie band at the same time. Titles include "Heartaches", "Please Come Back", "My Bucket's Got a Hole In it", "Did You Ever", and "Just Because". (Vocalists, Blues) CD
(SHM-CD pressing!)

Etta JamesMiss Etta James – The Complete Modern & Kent Recordings ... CD
Ace (UK), Late 50s. New Copy 2CD ... $12.99 19.99
The most complete collection of pre-Chess work by Etta James ever offered – a huge 2CD package that's filled with rare album tracks, key singles, and even some previously unissued material! Etta's fame at Chess in the 60s is a well-known fact of classic soul music – but in the years before hooking up with that label, she recorded some smoking R&B work for the Kent and Modern labels – really hard-hitting stuff that often had a rawer, earthier quality than any of her later recordings. Even at this early date in Etta's career, she had a voice that wouldn't quit – easily blowing away more established R&B singers like Laverne Baker or Ruth Brown – and tearing it up with some great small combo backings and a production style that really let her do her thing. Collection features 42 tracks in all – with tracks that include "The Wallflower", "Fools We Mortals Be", "Baby Baby Every Night", "Sunshine Of Love", "How Big A Fool", "Dance With Me Henry", "Nobody Loves You Like Me", "Don't You Remember", "We're In Love", "I Hope You're Satisfied", "Come What May", "Market Place", "Shortnin Bread Rock", "My One & Only", "I'm A Fool", "Hey Henry", and "That's All".

Little MiltonGrits Ain't Groceries (Checker) ... LP
Checker, 1969. Very Good+ ... $33.99
One of the funkiest albums ever cut by Little Milton – done at the end of the 60s with some hard Chicago soul arrangements from Gene Barge, and an overall style that mixes electric blues with some of the hard soul coming from the city's west side scene at the time! The album's much more of a soul album than a blues one – especially in comparison to some of Milton's other work – and titles include "Twenty Three Hours", "Just A Little Bit", "I Can't Quit You Baby", "I'll Always Love You", "Did You Ever Love A Woman", "Spring", "Grits Ain't Groceries" and "You're The One". LP, Vinyl record album
(Blue label pressing, with a small cutout hole – in nice shape!)

✨✧ Fred McDowellAlan Lomax Recordings ... LP
Mississippi, 1959. New Copy (reissue)... $11.99
The first ever recordings of Mississippi Fred McDowell – the legendary Alan Lomax Recordings – recorded in Como, Mississippi in September of 1959! It includes songs that would be part of his canon for the rest of his career, mostly just his voice and guitar in raw, beautiful, soul-shaking form. He's got some vocal accompaniment "When The Train Comes Along", plus Fanny Davis on the comb on a couple tunes and a second guitar by Miles Pratcher on a few. Perfection! Includes "Shake 'Em On Down", "Good Morning Little Schoolgirl", "Keep Your Lamps Trimmed And Burning", "Drop Down Mama", "Going Down The River", "Worried Mind Blues", "When The Train Comes Along" and more. LP, Vinyl record album

Charley PattonFounder Of The Delta Blues ... CD
Yazoo, Late 20s/Early 30s. Used ... $4.99
The world-changing late 20s and 1930s recordings of the great Charley Patton – grainy, soul shaking delta blues that's as pivotal and stirring as ever, if not even more so post-millenium, given that weary, old world lost beauty of it! 24 tracks including "Mississippi Boll Weavil Blues", "Banty Rooster Blues", "A Spoonful Of Blues", "High Water Everywhere", "Poor Me" and many more. CD
(Out of print.)

Muddy WatersAfter The Rain ... LP
Cadet, 1969. Sealed ... $69.99
Muddy's grooving hard and funky – with help from Cadet studio funksters like Charles Stepney, Phil Upchurch, Louis Satterfield, and Morris Jennings – one of the best ever of the once oft-maligned, now oft-beloved funk era Chess/Cadet albums! After The Rain has more of Muddy's classic bluesy finish than some of the other Chess blues remodel albums from the time – but it's still got plenty of raw production and great fuzzed out guitar that totally killer! Hard charging dirty grooves from Muddy Waters that we've always dug – and we're thrilled to see these kinds of records get some belated love! Titles include "I Am The Blues", "Hurtin Soul", "Bottom Of The Sea", "Honey Bee", "Rollin' And Tumblin'", "Screamin & Cryin", and "Blues & Trouble". LP, Vinyl record album
(Still sealed! Not the recent reissue – and definitely a vintage pressing – either mid 70s or earlier. Cover has a cut corner.)
