BB KingLive In Cook County Jail ... CD
ABC/MCA, 1971. New Copy ... $4.99 9.98
BB King live at the Cook County Jail in Chicago – and given the amount of great live shows going on in the institution during the early 70s, the jail must have been one hell of a place to be incarcerated! This classic features BB King entertaining the prisoners with a wickedly sharp blues set – done, like most prison live shows, with an edge that's often missing from more conventional concerts – plenty gritty, both on the vocals and guitar, with a sound the Chicago audience must have loved! Titles include "How Blue Can You Get", "Worry Worry", "Sweet Sixteen", "The Thrill Is Gone", "Please Accept My Love", and "Every Day I Have The Blues". CD
Also available Live In Cook County Jail ... LP 19.99

Sonny Boy WilliamsonBummer Road ... CD
MCA/Castle Communicatons (Australia), 1957/1958/1960. Used ... $4.99
No bummer here, as the set's a really great one – filled with late 50s Chess Records sides by Sonny Boy Williamson – a number of which are previously unissued! The package does a great job of reviving this material for a newly-informed blues audience of the modern age – giving liner notes, recording details, and more – in addition to pulling together sides that hadn't appeared on album before. Titles include "Little Village" – which is 12 minutes long, and interestingly marked as "not suitable for airplay" – plus "She Got Next To Me", "Santa Claus", "Unseen Eye", "I Can't Do Without You", "Temperature 110", and "This Old Life".

✨✧ Howlin WolfLondon Sessions ... CD
Chess/MCA, 1989. New Copy ... 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". CD

More jazz than blues, but that's OK with us – as the material here is mostly from the 78rpm era of Decca and Coral Records! Includes tracks by Louis Jordan, Sonny Parker, Billie Holiday, Cousin Joe, Lil Armstrong, Trisie Smith, Lonnie Johnson, Joan Shaw, Lionel Hampton, Ella Fitzgerald, Count Basie, Sister Rosetta Tharp, Lucky Millinder, and Sammy Price.

Bobby Blue BlandAin't Nothing You Can Do ... LP
Duke, 1964. Very Good+ ... $13.99
Beautiful early soul stuff by one of the greatest singers ever. Bobby's young soulful voice is in top form on this set, and the LP includes such great cuts as "Ain't Nothing You Can Do", "I'm Gonna Cry", "Black Night", and "Steal Away". Very cool cover, too, with a cartoon of Bobby and some girl standing on opposite sides of a huge breaking heart! LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Sonny Boy WilliamsonOne Way Out ... LP
Chess, Late 50s/Early 60s. Near Mint- ... $14.99
A great little collection of work that Sonny Boy Williamson recorded for Chess in the 50s and early 60s – presented here as one of the well-done archival packages that Chess was doing in the early 70s, as interest in their classics was coming back again. Most of the numbers here feature Williamson on vocals and harmonica, working with likely Chess associates who include Otis Spann and Lafayette Leake on piano, Muddy Waters and Robert Lockwood on guitars, and Willie Dixon on bass – and the set features the tracks "Born Blind", "I Wonder Why", "This Is My Apartment", "Cool Disposition", "I Know What Love Is All About", "Too Close Together", "Keep It To Yourself", and "Don't Lose Your Eye". LP, Vinyl record album
(80s pressing on MCA.)

✨✧ BB KingBB King – The Complete Kent/RPM Recordings 1950 to 1965 – The Life, Times, & Blues Of BB King In All His Glory (17CDs/LP/book) ... CD
Kent/P-Vine (Japan), 1950s/Early 60s. New Copy 17CD, LP & Book ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
One of the most expensive box sets you'll ever hope to own – but a package that's totally worth it, too – as a huge document of the sublime early years of the great BB King! King hit the mainstream big in the late 60s with his classic recordings for ABC, and a lot more in the 70s for MCA – but for long before those years, he made some amazing music for the RPM and Kent Record labels – groundbreaking blues that not only showcased his incredible work on guitar, but also featured that sophisticated Memphis mode of the time – which often used fuller backings, and even some slight currents of jazz in the music too. And while some of BB's albums from the time have been reissued, this whopping box offers up all his albums from the period in their entirety – 3 O'Clock Blues, You Upset Me Baby, Sweet Little Angel, Please Accept My Love, My Sometime Baby, Rock Me Baby, and The Jungle – plus more discs that are filled with singles, rare tracks, alternates, and more – a total of 17 full CDs' worth of music! Plus, the box also comes with a vinyl LP – titled Treasures Untold, with lots more rare BB King material from the time – and also comes with a Japanese edition of the book The Arrival Of BB King by Charles Sawyer – plus more notes as well. Very limited – and very cool! CD
