✨✧ BB KingHere's One You Didn't Know About – From The RPM & Kent Vaults ... CD
Ace (UK), Late 50s/Early 60s. New Copy ... $16.99
An excellent collection of rare work from the legendary BB King – a selection of 25 tracks from the vaults of RPM and Kent Records, 23 of which appear here for the first time ever! Some cuts are alternates, some are different versions of other recordings – and all are pretty darn wonderful – that sharp-edged BB King sound right at the start, before the famous Memphis powerhouse was recording for bigger labels in a more commercial setting! Lots of these cuts have a jazzy backing alongside BB's sweet guitar and raspy vocals – a mode that's similar to the mix of bigger band and bluesy elements you'd get on early work from Bobby Blue Bland – that great Memphis mix of modes that always makes us love this stretch in King's career so much. Titles include unusual versions of "Sweet Little Angel", "Catfish Blues", "Early In The Morning", "I Wonder Why", "Goin Down Slow", "Whole Lotta Meat", "Loving You In Vain", "Long Nights", "The Woman I Love", "Soul Beat", "Don't You Want A Man Like Me", "Be Careful With A Fool", and "Whole Lot Of Lovin".

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

BB KingJungle ... LP
Kent, Mid 60s. Very Good- ... $11.99
One of the standout classics from BB King's legendary run at Kent – a classic 60s LP with a cool little cover to boot! Arrangements on the set are by Maxwell Davis, but the overall sound is still plenty gritty – raw, rootsy electric blues with a definite Memphis influence, and a bit of a Chicago 60s twist. Titles include "Beautician Blues", "The Jungle", "5 Long Years", "Eyesight To The Blind", "Blue Shadows", "The Worst Thing In My Life", "Blues Stay Away", "Got Em Bad", and "It's A Mean World". LP, Vinyl record album
(Grey label pressing. Cover has a half split top seam.)

Lowell FulsonI've Got The Blues – Jewel Record Story ... CD
Jewel/Airline, Early 70s. New Copy 2CD ... $16.99 18.99
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".
