✨✧ BB KingLive In Japan ... CD
MCA/Universal, 1971. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
BB King live in Japan – really cooking here on a concert performance that's quite different from his other live records of the time! The set's a double-length one – originally a 2LP set – and most tracks are nice and long, with lots more room for solos from BB – stretching out wonderfully in front of a crowd that's clearly going out of their minds – almost as enthusiastic, at least in the way they're recorded, as the Apollo crowd at a James Brown performance! Although not issued in the US at the time, the material is essential BB King – really great tracks that are some of the best he recorded in the 70s. Titles include "Jamming At Sankei Hall", "Hikari", "Chains & Things", "You Are Still My Woman", "Niji Baby", "How Blue Can You Get", and "Eyesight To The Blind". CD

✨✧ Bobby Blue BlandBest Of Bobby Bland ... CD
Duke/MCA, Early 60s. Used ... Out Of Stock
To us, most of Bobby's early Duke albums would serve fine as "best of" sets in and of themselves – so great is his work for that label during this period! This one's a pretty great sampling of his genius – that unique blend of blues and soul that still makes Bobby's work sound fresher than most of the hackneyed, over-played work by other singers of the time. 12 tracks in all, including "Poverty", "I Smell Trouble", "Some-Day", "I'll Take Care Of You", "I Pity The Fool", "Cry Cry Cry", "Turn On Your Love Light", "Call On Me", "Ain't Nothing You Can Do", "If You Could Read My Mind", "Farther Up The Road" and "Stormy Monday".

Bobby BlandHere's The Man!!! ... LP
Duke, Mid 60s. Very Good ... $5.99
One of the fantastic Duke LPs by Bobby Bland from the early 60's, with a rootsy southern soul sound that prefaces later sounds to come out of Stax and Muscle Shoals. Includes the great cut "You're The One (That I Adore)", plus "You're Worth It All", "Your Friends", and "Ain't That Loving You". Beautiful stuff all the way through. LP, Vinyl record album
(MCA pressing from the 80s in an alternate cover, with some staining and peeling from moisture along the bottom inch.)

✨✧ 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

✨✧ VariousDiggin' Gold – A Galaxy Of West Coast Blues ... CD
Galaxy/Ace (UK), Mid 60s. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
A great selection of rare tracks that might have been R&B numbers, had they been recorded in the 50s – but which instead step out strongly as more soul-based tracks – thanks to the hip setting of the LA scene of the time! All the work here comes from the ultra-cool Galaxy Records – a west coast indie who had a great talent for taking blues-based artists and turning them towards more contemporary soul modes – a bit with a vibe that sounds like similar work over at Chess Records from the period, but with a special twist that makes the Galaxy groove something that's all its own! There's some nice currents of funk here, alongside grittier vocals and lots of nice guitar – and as usual for Ace Records, the track list is filled with rare singles, including some unissued numbers – and packaged with a great set of notes! Titles include "On My Way Back Home" by Little Johnny Taylor, "Compact Baby", "To Far Beyond Repair" by Billy Keene, "Rattlesnake, Baby Rattlesnake" by Joe Johnson, "Talk To You Baby" by Rob Robinson, "Lay Up In Bed" by Del Cunningham, "Watch That Stuff" by Good Time Charlie, "You're A Deserter" by Billy Keene, "Baby It's All Right" by Clay Hammond, and "I Don't Know Why" by Bill McAfee. (Soul, Blues) CD
