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 ... Out Of Stock
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".

✨✧ Lowell FulsonI've Got The Blues – Jewel Record Story ... CD
Jewel/Airline, Early 70s. New Copy 2CD ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A killer set of funky blues by the great Lowell Fulson – an artist who'd already recorded tons of classic work for labels like Chess and Kent – but still managed to kick out some excellent early 70s material for Jewel Records too! Backing on many tracks is by a nice little combo, with a very heavy drummer – which results in some nice hard snapping drum parts that recall some of Lowell's best funky work of the 60s – kind of a 70s extension of the "Tramp" groove, with lots of electric bass groudning the grooves, and some excellent work on guitar from Lowell. His vocals are wonderful too – more confidently expressive than in the early years, which may well make them the most powerful force in the music – with a sinister, soulful style we really love. Titles include "Teach Me", "Change Of Heart", "Every Second A Fool Is Born", "Stoned To The Bone", "Sleeper", "Why Don't We Do It In The Road?", "Cheatin Woman", "Man On The Run", "Fed Up", "Look At You Baby", "Take My Hand", "Henpecked", "Stop & Think", "Deep In Love", and "Searchin Out".
