Howlin WolfLondon Sessions ... CD
Chess/MCA, 1989. New Copy ... $4.99 9.98
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". CD

✨✧ BB KingBB King In London ... LP
ABC, 1971. Very Good Gatefold ... $11.99
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".

VariousScene Club – Ham Yard, London 1963 to 1966 ... LP
Outta Sight (UK), Late 50s/Early 60s. New Copy ... $13.99
American soul and R&B from the start of the 60s – but served up here as a tribute to London's crucial Scene Club of the 60s – a key musical venue that had an undeniable influence on mod, beat, and soul sounds to come! The Scene Club was more R&B inspired than some of the Northern Soul venues to come on the UK scene – but they were also critical in laying down an approach that so many others would pick up and run with a few years later – a way of selecting the coolest, hippest cuts of the time – and coming up with a fresh way to lay them out for the dancefloor! The package features 16 rough and ready groovers – all pretty darn soulful – and titles include "A Fool In Love" by Ike & Tina Turner, "Fannie Mae" by Buster Brown, "Dear Lady Twist" by Gary Bonds, "Hide & Go Seek (part 1)" by Bunker Hill, "I Got Love If You Want It" by Slim Harpo, "You Gonna Wreck My Life" by Slim Harpo, "Got To Have Some" by Willie Mabon, "Let's Go" by Hank Ballard, "Ya Ya" by Lee Dorsey, and "The Hunch" by Bobby Peterson.

✨✧ Chuck BerryLondon Sessions ... LP
Chess, 1972. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Chuck Berry makes the same London move as some of his other Chess Records contemporaries – and the result is one of Chuck's best albums from the later years! The set's not as star-studded as other efforts of this nature – but that's fine with us because Chuck really shines as the lead star out front, on both vocals and guitar – getting some great gritty backing from players who include Derek Griffiths and Owen McIntyre on guitar, Ian McLagen and Dave Kaffinetti on piano, and Rick Gretsch on bass. The set features a mix of London studio recordings and a few live tracks – and titles include "I Will Not Let You Go", "London Berry Blues", "Let's Boogie", "Mean Old World", "Johnny B Goode", and "I Love You". (Soul, Blues) LP, Vinyl record album
(Blue label pressing. Cover has a split bottom seam & some splitting on the top seam.)

✨✧ VariousRaw Blues ... CD
London, 1967. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Raw blues from both sides of the Atlantic – a hip British album that features work from some key American players, as well as contributions from some of the up and coming Brit blues rockers of the late 60s! The sound is definitely in keeping with the title – nicely raw and rough – and titles include "My Home In The Desert" and "You're Gonna Need My Help" by Otis Spann, "Bernard Jenkins" and "Lonely Years" by John Mayall & Eric Clapton, "Calcutta Blues" and "24 Hours" by Champion Jack Dupree, "Long Night" by John Mayall & Steve Anglo, "Milkman Strut" by John Mayall, and "You Got Good Business" by Curtis Jones.

✨✧ Champion Jack DupreeBlues From The Gutter ... LP
Atlantic, Early 60s. Near Mint- ... $69.99
Blues from the gutter, with a nice current of jazz, too – thanks to participation from a hip group who really make this album from Champion Jack something special! Dupree himself sings and plays piano – often with plenty of rootsy currents – but the combo also features excellent alto from Pete Brown, who adds in plenty of soul – as well as Ennis Lowery on guitar, Wendell Marshall on bass, and Willie Jones on drums. All tracks are credited to Jack, but there's more than a few here that are traditional, and just given new arrangements by Dupree – and titles include "Strollin", "Stack-O-Lee", "Frankie & Johnny", "Bad Blood", "Junker's Blues", "Evil Woman", and "Can't Kick The Habit". LP, Vinyl record album

Screamin Jay HawkinsPlanet Sessions (Night & Day Of Screamin Jay Hawkins – plus bonus tracks) ... CD
Planet/Ace (UK), 1965. New Copy ... $11.99 18.98
An incredible lost moment in the career of Screamin Jay Hawkins – material that was recorded in London in the mid 60s, and with a very different flavor than most of Hawkins' other material! There's a mod jazz approach to this set that's totally great – as Jay's raw vocals come into play with a sweet-grooving Hammond, in a combo that also features some sharp work on guitar, and some strong sax solos too! The upbeat, jazzy vibe is totally great – and gives Screamin Jay a whole new focus for his vocals – and for his songwriting, too – as most of the material here is original. And while Hawkins is always best remembered for his spooky, gimmicky cuts, this material is equally great in a totally different way – and, if it were pursued further, might have given the man a whole new direction in his career. Make no mistake, there's still plenty here to love if you're a longtime fan of Screamin Jay Hawkins – but you'll also really appreciate the mod grooves in the set as well! Titles include "I Wanna Know", "In My Dream", "Change Your Ways", "Serving Time", "Please Forgive Me", "Move Me", "My Marion", and "All Night". Plus, CD features a whopping 12 bonus tracks – a few alternate takes, and other versions of album songs – plus the titles "I'm Lonely" and "Stone Crazy". (Soul, Blues) CD

✨✧ Champion Jack DupreeChampion Jack's Natural & Soulful Blues ... LP
Atlantic, 1960. Used ... 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 overall – but does have a small cutout hole in the corner, and one tiny mark on the spine.)
