✨✧ Howlin WolfLondon Sessions ... LP
Chess, 1970. Very Good- Gatefold ... $9.99
A famous date that showcases the Chess Records influence on the sound of the Brit rock scene – one that has a number of key players "giving back" to the label, and working on a special date with Howlin Wolf! Wolf's rough vocals are in the lead on all tracks, and he also plays a bit of harmonica and guitar as well – and other artists include Steve Winwood on piano and organ, Eric Clapton on guitar, Bill Wyman on bass, and Charlie Watts on drums – all players who are respectful of the original bluesy sound of Chess, and who clearly dig the opportunity to show off their chops in the setting. Titles include "I Ain't Superstitious", "Poor Boy", "Do The Do", "Red Rooster", "Built For Comfort", "What A Woman", "Highway 49", "Who's Been Talking", and "Rocking Daddy". LP, Vinyl record album
(Orange label pressing. Cover has some wear.)

✨✧ BB KingBB King In London ... LP
ABC, 1971. Used Gatefold ... Out Of Stock
BB King in London – not playing live, but working in the studio with a host of British musicians he'd inspired over the years! The lineup varies from track to track, giving a nice sort of variety to the album – and the overall feel is a bit like some of the Chess London sessions of the time – but maybe more blues overall! Features work by Peter Green on guitar, Steve Marriott on harmonica, Alexis Korner on acoustic guitar, Gary Wright on electric piano and Hammond, Ringo Starr on drums, and The Mystery Shadow on Hammond – and titles include "Ghetto Woman", "Wet Hayshark", "Part Time Love", "We Can't Agree", and "Blue Shadows". LP, Vinyl record album
(Cover has light wear.)

Big Mama ThorntonIn Europe (red vinyl pressing) ... LP
Arhoolie, 1965. New Copy (reissue)... $18.99 20.99
Big Mama Thornton may well be best-remembered as the woman who gave the world "Hound Dog" – which later catapulted Elvis to fame – but over the years she continued to be a hell of a singer, with a rich legacy of music that more than stands on its own! Witness this mid 60s performance from London – with the singer backed by small group instrumentation that includes Shakey Horton on harmonica, Eddie Boyd on piano and organ, and a young Buddy Guy on guitar – players who are definitely blues, but who often bring some slight funky soul currents to the music, too – which seems to give Thornton one of her best showcases ever on record. The album's a gem – maybe one of her best – and titles include "Down Home Shake Down", "Sweet Little Angel", "The Place", "Little Red Rooster", "Swing It On home", and "Session Blues". LP, Vinyl record album
(Limited edition of 500 – red vinyl pressing)

✨✧ Champion Jack DupreeChampion Jack's Natural & Soulful Blues ... LP
Atlantic, 1960. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
An early example of how Atlantic had already begun to exploit the international fascination with American R&B. The session was recorded in London, with Champion Jack on piano and vocals, and backing by a young Alexis Korner on guitar and Jack Fallon on bass. The set's got a rootsy feel – perhaps more so than if it was a contemporary blues album in a regular American setting. Titles include "Slow Drag", "Bad Life", "Don't Leave Me Mary", and "Seafood Blues". LP, Vinyl record album
(Red & purple label pressing. Cover is beautiful!)
