✨✧ Cecil BarfieldGeorge Mitchell Collection (with download) ... LP
Big Legal Mess, 1976. New Copy ... $11.99 17.99
Timeless work by Georgia bluesman Cecil Barfield – material recorded in the mid 70s, issued in the 21st Century – but done with a quality that could go back to the 78rpm generation! Barfield has this amazing vocal style – strongly inflected at times, with this warble that makes for a strong musical element next to his acoustic guitar – almost Malian at times, and very different than any other blues singer we can think of. The recording quality is excellent – clear, clean, and very unadorned – and titles include "Love Blues", "Tell Me Rider", "Captain Had A Bulldog", "Big Legged Woman", "Five Long Years", "Root Blues", and "Talk To Your Daughter".

Lightnin HopkinsLightnin & The Blues – Lightnin Hopkins Sings A Collection Of American Folklore (Herald) ... LP
Herald, 1954. New Copy (reissue)... $11.99
Lightnin Hopkins at his best – a set that rings out with all his bold electric tones on the guitar, yet which also has the moody, stripped-down feel of a blues recording from a few decades before! The electricity really does a lot to deepen the tone – both in the echo from Hopkins' guitar, and in the way his vocals stretch out in the same space! There's no other backing at all – which makes for a moody feel, and a quality that lives up to the "folk" in the title – yet Lightnin also gives the whole thing a crackling sort of energy that's also very much in the best postwar blues mode. Titles include "Sick Feelin Blues", "Blues For My Cookie", "My Baby's Gone", "Lightnin's Special", "Nothin But The Blues", and "Don't Think Cause You're Pretty". LP, Vinyl record album

Magic SlimBorn On A Bad Sign (180 gram vinyl – with bonus download) ... LP
Storyville (Denmark), 1976. New Copy ... $22.99 24.99
Raw west side blues from the mighty Magic Slim – recorded a small club in Chicago, with a grittier quality than some of Slim's previous records! The guitar is beautifully out front in the mix – echoing out in the space of the club with these loud, lean lines – and Slim's vocals seem to have gotten even better over the years, with a richness of soul that really grabs us more than we remember – so much so that his singing may well rival his guitar on the record! The group also features Alabama Junior Pettis on guitar and added vocal, plus Nick Holt on bass, and Douglas Holt on drums – and titles include the funky "Slim's Bump", plus "Going Down Slow", "Born On A Bad Sign", "Rock Me Baby", and "Born Down The Bridge".
