Joe LigginsHoneydripper ... LP
Mercury, Early 60s. Near Mint- ... $5.99
Not the original version of Joe's big hit "The Honeydripper" – but a great album of R&B tracks! The set was recorded under the supervision of Bob Blackwell during the late 50s – and Bob takes Joe's influential hard R&B style, and applies it to some of the well-crafted arrangements that Mercury were turning out at the time, coming up with a hip little album that mixes blues, soul, and even a bit of jazz playing on the right tracks. All tunes are originals by Joe – and titles include "Barnyard Imitations", "Tanya", "Wee Wee Hours", "Frankie Lee", "Friday Night Twist Party", "Black Coffee Blues", and "I've Got A Right To Cry". (Soul, Blues) LP, Vinyl record album
(Great 60s pressing, with black label and deep groove!)

✨✧ Junior ParkerLike It Is/Honey Drippin Blues ... CD
Mercury/BGO (UK), 1967/1969. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
A pair of late 60s gems from the bluesy singer Junior Parker – back to back on a single CD! Like It Is features standout soul from the great Junior Parker – a singer who started out in blues, and already had a big legacy of music for Sun and Duke Records by the time of this Mercury set – but maybe sounding even more amazing here with some soul touches in the backings! The set was produced by Bobby Robinson, and arranged by Gene Bowlegs Miller – and has a Memphis recording pedigree that's a bit like the best way that Stax/Volt was mixing blues and soul in the late 60s! There's still some of the slower-burning Duke moments, but there's also some great sock-soul tracks too – on titles that include "Come Back Baby", "Just Like A Fish", "Country Girl", "Sometimes I Wonder", and "Cracked Up Over You". Honey Drippin Blues is killer work from Junior Parker – an artist who was already great in his early Duke Records years – but one who really seemed to take off even more as the 60s moved on! On records like this, Parker picks up a strong undercurrent of funky soul – a groove that's a perfect fit for Mercury's Blue Rock label – which often did a great job of merging the worlds of blues and soul – especially in the music of Junior Wells. Production has lots of nice Chicago soul touches, and at times Junior's vocals move into a territory that's almost a bit like the groove of Tyrone Davis at the time. Great stuff throughout – and titles include "I Got Money", "Lovin Man On Your Hands", "Easy Lovin", and "I'm So Satisfied". CD
