BB KingBB King In London ... LP
ABC, 1971. Near Mint- Gatefold ... $19.99
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". LP, Vinyl record album
(Cover has a cutout hole – a nice copy!)

✨✧ Howlin WolfLondon Sessions ... LP
Chess, 1970. Used Gatefold ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
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
(Blue label pressing.)

✨✧ Chuck BerryLondon Sessions ... LP
Chess, 1972. Used ... 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

✨✧ VariousScene Club – Ham Yard, London 1963 to 1966 ... LP
Outta Sight (UK), Late 50s/Early 60s. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
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.

✨✧ John MayallBlues Alone ... LP
London, 1967. Used ... Temporarily 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
(Cover has some wear.)

✨✧ Errol DixonBlues In The Pot ... LP
London, 1968. Used ... Out Of Stock
An album that definitely cooks nicely, and with the same sort of rootsy feel that you'd find in American revivalist blues of the same time! Dixon's working here on the London scene, and playing piano – an instrument that seemed to garner as much respect with bluesmen overseas as the guitar did back in the US. Titles include "Confusion Blues", "I Love My Baby", "Hot Summer", "The Pot", "I Done Found Out", and "Hot Sausage". LP, Vinyl record album
(US stereo pressing. Cover has some light wear.)

✨✧ Big Mama ThorntonIn Europe ... CD
Arhoolie, 1965. Used ... Out Of Stock
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". CD
