Guitar Slim Green with Johnny & Shuggie OtisStone Down Blues (with bonus tracks) ... CD
Kent/BGP (UK), 1970. New Copy ... $11.99
A blues album, but one with a difference – thanks to some tremendous help from the legendary Johnny Otis and his young son Shuggie! Despite the fact that the leader is billed as Guitar Slim Green, Shuggie actually plays some lead guitar on the record too – adding in some cool, complicated solos that point towards his genius to come as a solo act – and which also get some nicely romping rhythms from Johnny on drums! The Otis family was definitely bringing a lot of funk into their sound at the time, which they share plenty with Slim here – helping to make the record way more than just another late 60s rootsy blues session, and instead a great west coast criss-crossing of modes. Titles include "Shake Em Up", "My Little Angel Child", "5th Street Alley Boogie", "Old Folks Blues", "This War Ain't Right", and "Big Fine Thing". Also features two bonus tracks, both unissued – "My Marie" and "Rock The Nation". CD

Little MiltonLittle Milton Sings Big Soul ... CD
Checker/Kent (UK), 1980s/Early 90s. New Copy ... $9.99
Big soul from Little Milton – a bluesman at heart, but one who always had an equal heart for soul as well – so much so, that by the time of these records, he was almost more of a southern soul singer overall! The set brings together a wealth of overlooked gems that Milton recorded for Malaco Records after his initial years at Chess – and the tunes have this slow-burning vibe that really shows the way that Malaco carried the flame of southern soul in the 80s – at a time when other labels like Stax and Atlantic had really let it die! There's a very old school vibe to these tracks – way more so than you'd guess from the date – and Milton's completely charming all the way through, on titles that include "Can't Trust Your Neighbor", "What Our Love Needs", "Caught In The Act", "You Left A Goldmine For A Golddigger", "That's The Way I Feel Bout Cha", "Gonna Have Murder On Your Hands", "I'd Rather Go Blind", and "Mr & Mrs Untrue".

✨✧ VariousBaby How Can It Be – Songs Of Love, Lust, & Contempt From The 20s and 30s (3CD set) ... CD
Dust To Digital, 1920s/1930s. Used 3CD ... Out Of Stock
A treasure trove of work from the 78rpm generation – songs of love and lust from the 20s and 30s, plus a few numbers filled with contempt, as well! Nick Tosches handles the notes here, and he definitely gets the spirit right – as the collection's way different than any old-timey expectations you might have – a really revelatory look at the sorts of songs that were going down in the early days of recording – years before there were any sort of regulations on content or subject matter, and when the discs themselves were probably the most subversive thing around! The styles are mostly blues and folksy modes – and all the records are pulled from the collection of John Heneghan, and cleaned up beautifully by the folks at Dust To Digital – who almost go past their already high standards. 66 tracks in all, with work by Frank Quinn, Burnette & Rutherford, Bernie Cummins, Joe Linthecome, State Street Boys, Dallas String Band, Taylor's Kentucky Boys, Davey Miller, Kalama's Quartette, and many other folks you probably don't have in your record collection at home! CD
(Please note there is a cutout hole through the digipack case.)
