✨✧ John MayallBlues Alone ... LP
London, 1967. Used ... Out Of Stock
A real shift in sound for John Mayall – as the album lives up to its title, and mostly features solo work from the artist! Through the magic of overdubbing, Mayall's singing here along with his own work on organ, harmonica, and guitar – and apart from some brief additional drum work from Keef Hartley, most tracks here have a relatively spare sound overall – bluesier and rootsier than even the previous Blues Breakers albums! As you might expect, Mayall sounds great in the setting – and titles include "Down The Line", "No More Tears", "Harp Man", "Broken Wings", "Cancelling Out", "Don't Kick Me", and "Sonny Boy Blow". (Rock, Blues) LP, Vinyl record album
(US pressing. Cover has some ring & edge wear.)

Little Brother MontgomeryWorried Blues (180 gram pressing – with download) ... LP
Fat Possum, 1969. New Copy ... $12.99 17.98
Underground 60s work from Little Brother Montgomery – the bluesy pianist who was such an important part of the Chicago scene in the 30s! The set's got a very timeless feel – mostly just Montgomery on piano and vocals, with some occasional guitar accompaniment from Mike Stewart – who seems to play a steel guitar at points – and some guest vocals from Jeanne Carroll at a few points – which leaves most of the music to the man himself, who really shines in the setting! The production is lean and laidback – but Little Brother is super-tight in his performance – as sparkling and lively as he must have been during the 78rpm era, but recorded with much better fidelity. Titles include "No Special Rider", "Prison Bound Blues", "Gin House Blues", "London Shout", "Oh Daddy", "Little Brother's Early Pieces & History", "Muleface Blues", and "Farrish Street Jive".

✨✧ Screamin Jay HawkinsPlanet Sessions (Night & Day Of Screamin Jay Hawkins – plus bonus tracks) ... CD
Planet/Ace (UK), 1965. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
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
