Leon Thomas, T-Bone Walker, & OthersSuper Black Blues, Vol 2 ... LP
Flying Dutchman, 1970. Near Mint- Gatefold ... $16.99
A weird little set on Flying Dutchman – a live set that features the talents of Leon Thomas, T-Bone Walker, Eddie Vinson, and Joe Turner on vocals – plus instrumental backing by players that include Elvin Jones, Wynton Kelly, Howard Morgan, Earl (aka Neal) Creque, and Richard Landrum. The groove here is a mix of blues and funky soul – hipper than the usual blues set of the time, especially on the Leon Thomas tracks "Welcome To New York", "Damn Nam (Aint' Goin To Vietnam)", and "Disillusion Blues". Leon sings lead vocals on half the album – and other tracks include "Sail On", "Stormy Monday Blues", "I Had A Dream", "Person To Person", and "Honey Hush". LP, Vinyl record album

Eddie Cleanhead VinsonYou Can't Make Love Alone ... LP
Mega/Flying Dutchman, 1971. Near Mint- ... $4.99
Eddie was way more than a bluesman – and here's the proof of that! The album has Eddie both singing and playing alto sax – in a set of hip, openly flowing tracks recorded live at the Montreux Jazz Festival in 1971. The group features some strong funky jazz players – like Neal Creque, Cornell Dupree, Chuck Rainey, and Pretty Purdie – and although the mode of the tracks is definitely blues in rhythm and pacing, there's some wonderfully jazzy touches, not only from the other players on the set, but also from Eddie's alto solos, which have an early 60s soul jazz kind of approach. All tracks are long, and titles include "Straight No Chaser", "Person To Person", "I Had A Dream", and "You Can't Make Love Alone". LP, Vinyl record album
