✨✧ VariousMercury Records – The New Orleans Sessions – 1950 &1953 ... CD
Mercury/Bear Family (Germany), 1950/1953. Used 2 CDs ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A great lost chapter in the history of New Orleans R&B – material recorded by Mercury Records down in Louisiana in the early 50s – all beautifully brought together here in a lavishly overstuffed package! Mercury was located in Chicago, and cut most of their famous early work in the Windy City – but in the years 1950 and 1953, they made some key trips down to New Orleans – and recorded some great work that's still relatively unknown all these years later! The Mercury work from New Orleans isn't nearly as strictly codified as that of labels like Imperial or Atlantic – and there's a nice variety of swing, jump, and bluesy rhythms going on here – served up by a relatively tight cadre of artists. The 2CD set is almost worth it for the booklet alone – a 70 page treasure trove of notes, photos, and other details on the music. But there's also plenty of great music too – a whopping 47 tracks that include "A Job For A Jockey", "Still My Angel Child", "Miss Lollypop's Confession", "Love Troubles", and "Baby Get Wise" by Alma Monday; "Byrd's Blues", "Hadacol Bounce", "Her Mind Is Gone", "Between The Night & Day", and "Been Foolin Around" by Roy Byrd; "Boogie's The Thing" and "Bat Lee Swing" by George Miller & His Mid-Driffs; "Something's Wrong" and "Five Long Letters" by Herbert Woo Woo More; "Mercury Boogie" and "New Way Of Loving" by Dwine Craven; "Keep Your Hands On Your Heart" by Pat Valdelar; "Bye & Bye" by Silvertone Singers; "I Walk In My Sleep" by Theard Johnson; and "She Won't Leave No More" by Little Joe Gaines.

✨✧ Junior WellsJunior Wells Sings Live At The Golden Bear ... LP
Mercury/Blue Rock, 1968. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A lost gem from the late 60s Mercury/Blue Rock years – and a live recording by Junior Wells that's a lot harder than his studio work for the label! The setting is the Golden Bear nightclub – and the feel of the album is very much in the raw electric Chicago mode of the mid 60s, the style that inspired countless rock and soul artists at the time, and which was still pretty intense at the time of the album. The record includes versions of Willie Dixon's "I'm Ready" and "My Babe", plus covers of "Driving Wheel", "Please, Please, Please", and "The Goat". Plus it's got front cover art by Victor Moscoso.
