✨✧ Roy RobertsRoy Roberts Experience ... CD
Perfect Toy (Germany), Late 60s/Early 70s. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
A long-overdue full length set of work from Roy Roberts – a musician who's maybe best known for his more recent blues material on the Virginia scene, but who's presented here in a hip array of early funk and soul singles! The groove is nice and deep – and Roy's definitely coming from a blues perspective in the way he delivers the lyrics and uses his guitar, but also falls nicely in line with the rest of the group – who serve up sounds that embrace the most searing southern grooves, from a span that runs from Texas through Memphis and Muscle Shoals! Lots of these tracks were issued as great two-part funky 45s – which allows for nice space for instrumental moments too – and titles include "I Know What To Do To Satisfy You", "I'm Number One", "Stop", "Returning From Cloud 9", "You & Me Together (parts 1 & 2)", "Bee Hive (parts 1 & 2)", "You Move Me (parts 1 & 2)", "You Ain't Miss It", "Let's Wrap Up Tonight Baby", "Thinking About You", and "So Much In Love".

VariousOriginal Blues/Risque Blues – My Ding A Ling ... CD
King, Late 40s/Early 50s. Used ... $4.99
Raw, raunchy sounds – all pulled together from a time before soul and rock even existed! Most of the work here is from the classic catalog of King Records – a killer imprint in the postwar R&B market, and a company who wasn't afraid to do what it took to make a knockout record! In the case of these tracks, the singers often hit some fairly suggestive material – often hidden in early 50s innuendo, but barely so – with a vibe that's often nastier than even the most hardcore rockabilly sounds to come! The music here has its roots in blues, but is inflected with plenty of jazz, and the presence of the singers often point the way towards soul music – especially the James Brown crowd that would later rise at the same label. Titles on this volume include "I Like My Baby's Pudding" by Wynonie Harris, "My Natchl Man" by Fluffy Hunter, "Mountain Oysters" by Eddie Davis, "Let Me Be Stay Away From Me" by Freddy King, "Can't Do Sixty No More" by Billy Ward & The Domonies, "My Ding A Ling" by Dave Bartholomew, "Butcher Pete" by Roy Brown, and "Sittin On It All The Time" by Wynonie Harris.

✨✧ Eddie Cleanhead VinsonBald Headed Blues – His Complete King Recordings 1949 to 1952 ... CD
King/Ace (UK), Late 40s/Early 50s. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
If you've never fully exposed yourself to the genius of Eddie Cleanhead Vinson, prepare to get your mind blown – because he's a hell of a singer, a hell of an alto saxophonist, and a massive R&B talent in these early sides for King Records! Eddie's work here easily rivals contemporary King Records greatness from Roy Brown and Wynonie Harris – but maybe tops them even more, given his strong work on his own horn – blown with the lusty fullness of a tenor, and balanced with Vinson's fantastic vocals – which, at their fullest, often feel like they're blowing a fuse in a similar style to his saxophone! This is the best collection we've ever seen of these tracks – presented with great notes, beautiful sound, and even a few unissued tracks – in a total of 26 titles that include "Ashes On My Pillow", "Eddie's Bounce", "No Good Woman Blues", "Somebody Done Stole My Cherry Red", "Wineola", "My Big Brass Bed Is Gone", "Queen Bee Blues", "Jump & Grunt", "Home Boy", "Time After Time", and "The People On My Party Line".

VariousBluesin By The Bayou – Ain't Broke Ain't Hungry ... CD
Ace (UK), Late 50s/1960s. New Copy ... $12.99 18.99
A fantastic look at the strong blues legacy in Louisiana – especially the electric blues that emerged from the swamps in the late 50s! The package here is one of the grittiest in the "By The Bayou" series from Ace – and not only features rare work from labels that include Excello, Ric, Flyright, Goldband, and Instant – but also includes a fair bit of unissued tunes too! There's a romping, riffing vibe to most numbers – those Louisiana rhythms that got cleaned up and moved uptown in New Orleans soul – but presented here in their most stripped-down modes, often showing a bit of a bridge with rural blues of the generation before. In keeping with the Ace Records tradition, the presentation is wonderful – great sound and much more detailed notes than you'd get from a public domain package – with 28 titles that include "Don't Change Your Mind" by TB Fisher, "I Love Her So" by Al Smith, "Somebody Tell Me" by Jake Jackson, "I Don't Know" by Lightnin Slim, "Baby Baby Baby" by Ramblin Hi Harris, "Sugar Coated Love" by Barbara Lynn, "Dreaming Dreaming" by Joe Richards, "Ain't Broke Ain't Hungry" by Polka Dot Slim, "Cigarettes" by Slim Harpo, "In The Evening" by Cookie & The Cupcakes, "Better Start Doin It" by Honey Boy Allen, "Pleadin" by Mercy Baby, and "I've Been In This Prison" by Leroy Washington.

VariousNo Jive – Authentic Southern Country Blues ... CD
Ace (UK), Late 50s. New Copy ... $11.99 18.99
Rootsy blues from the great Excello Records – most of it recorded not too far from the Tennessee city in which the label made its home! The southern scene in the 50s was going through plenty of changes – partly because of all the migration northwards that started during the wartime years, partly because of the way that radio and growing indie labels were helping criss-cross sounds and scenes through their musical efforts – with a huge run of changes that were taking place in the urban scene. Even out in the sticks, stronger use of the electric guitar really transformed rural blues – even in spare recording settings that might have mirrored blues records of the 20s and 30s – and the use of new ideas, new inflections, and new ways of putting over a tune are perfectly captured here in a batch of rare tracks done by the Excello label. Most of the cuts are super-rare singles, issued here with excellent sound – and there's a few other numbers on the set that are issued here for the first time ever – with great sound and excellent notes. Titles include "I'm Bad" by Good Rockin Bob, "No Jive" by Little Al, "Honey Babe" by Arthur Gunter, "The Natural Facts" by Leroy Campbell, "Wasted Time" by Shy Guy Douglas, "Dirty Britches" by The Leap Frogs, "Welcome Home Baby" by Slim Hunt, and "Quit My Drinkin" by Robert Garrett.
