✨✧ Howlin WolfMore Real Folk Blues ... CD
Chess/MCA, 1967. Used ... $9.99
A much earlier set of tracks than the first volume of Real Folk Blues from Howlin Wolf – mostly material recorded in the mid 50s, both in Chicago and Memphis – all with a really nitty gritty sort of feel! There's a rough and rootsy mode going on here – one that has Wolf's raspy vocals right up front in the lead, often supported by just a bit of electric guitar to emphasize the more sinister notes in the tunes. All tracks are originals by Wolf (aka Chester Burnett) – and titles include "Just My Kind", "I've Got A Woman", "Work For Your Money", "I'll Be Around", "You Can't be Beat", "You Gonna Wreck My Life", "I Love My Baby", "Neighbors", "I'm The Wolf", "Rocking Daddy", "Who Will Be Next?", and "I Have A Little Girl".

Little MiltonIf Walls Could Talk ... CD
Checker/MCA, 1968. Used ... $12.99
A great example of why Little Milton was always one of the few Chicago blues artists who could also break strongly in the soul camp at the time – and a beautifully balanced set that perfectly shows both sides of the Chicago scene of the time! Production is by old Vee Jay maestro Calvin Carter, and arrangements by Gene Barge, who manages to slide effortlessly between blues and soul on the set – almost pushing Milton into Tyrone Davis territory, but keeping things a bit more rougher and down home on some of the other numbers. The sound is wonderful – very deep and rich, and with a sound that's head and shoulders above most other albums of this type in the late 60s. Titles include "Baby I Love You", "If Walls Could Talk", "Things That I Used to Do", "Let's Get Together", "I Play Dirty", "Blues Get Off My Shoulder", "I Don't Know", and "Poor Man". CD

Muddy WatersFathers & Sons (with bonus tracks) ... CD
Chess/MCA, 1969. Used ... $8.99
One of the biggest albums of Muddy Waters' career – a key crossover effort that has Waters as the "father" working with "sons" Paul Butterfield and Michael Bloomfield! The style here is still quite rootsy overall – and the double-length session features one album recorded in the studio, and a second done live at the Super Cosmic Joy-Scout Jamboree – key evidence of the growing hippie audience for blues like this! The core group features Waters on vocals with Otis Spann on piano, Mike Bloomfield on guitar, Paul Butterfield on harmonica, Donald Duck Dunn on bass, and Sam Lay on drums – and guest players include Phil Upchurch on bass and Buddy Miles on drums – each on one number. Titles include "All Aboard", "Mean Disposition", "Forty Days & Forty Nights", "Sugar Sweet", "Twenty Four Hours", "I'm Ready", "Walkin Thru The Park", "Got My Mojo Working (parts 1 & 2)", "The Same Thing", "Baby Please Don't Go", and "Honey Bee".Studio & live recordings. Includes the bonus prreviously unreleased tracks "Country Boy", "I Love The Lifre I Live", "Oh Yeah", "I Feel So Good". CD

BB KingMidnight Believer ... LP
ABC, 1978. Very Good- ... $5.99
One of the most tightly-produced of BB King's albums for MCA, but a set that's still filled with undeniable charm – and which really shows King more than able to step up to some well-deserved superstardom! There's a bit of an LA finish to the backings, but things are never too smooth – and BB's vocals and guitar both really shine in this setting – with inflections and edges that are just wonderful throughout! The balance is great – that rare ability that MCA had to serve up such records at the time – and titles include "A World Full Of Strangers", "Midnight Believer", "Never Make A Move Too Soon", "Hold On", "I Just Can't Leave Your Love Alone", and "When It All Comes Down".

✨✧ 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 ... 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
