Bobby Blue BlandTwo Steps From The Blues ... LP
Duke, 1961. New Copy (reissue)... $9.99
An incredible record from Bobby Blue Bland – and quite possibly the greatest one he ever made! The set's got an amazing something special that's unlike most other material of the time – a bit blues, but a lot of soul too – still with some echoes of R&B in the jazzier charts ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

Bo DiddleyBo Diddley Is A Lover (180 gram mono edition) ... LP
Checker/Sundazed, 1961. New Copy (reissue)... $18.99 24.99
Hardly the love song album you might guess from the title – and instead, a classic batch of Chess Records material from the mighty Bo Diddley! The sound is loud, echoey, and nice and raw – the kind of unique groove that really made Diddley a standout in the rock and roll years – ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

Checker, 1960. New Copy (reissue)... $9.99
Have guitar, will travel – and back in the day, Bo Diddley was going pretty darn far with great material like this!

Bo DiddleyWhere It All Began ... LP
Chess, 1972. New Copy (reissue)... $9.99
Nasty nasty funk from the great Bo Diddley – one of his rare funky 70s classics for Chess – produced by Johnny Otis with a really tripped-out groove! The album's got an edge that seems to go even farther than some of Bo's other Chess work at the time – and picks up the full-on ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

Willie Dixon & Memphis SlimWillie's Blues ... LP
Prestige/Bluesville, 1958. New Copy (reissue)... $16.99 19.99
A mighty pairing of talents – the great Willie Dixon on bass and vocals, plus Memphis Slim on piano – captured together in a lean quintet that also features Wally Richardson on guitar and Al Ashby on tenor sax! The approach here is great – more folksy and unfettered – with ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Champion Jack DupreeBlues From The Gutter ... LP
Atlantic, Early 60s. New Copy (reissue)... $14.99
Blues from the gutter, with a nice current of jazz, too – thanks to participation from a hip group who really make this album from Champion Jack something special! Dupree himself sings and plays piano – often with plenty of rootsy currents – but the combo also features excellent ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Lum GuffinLum Guffin – The Walking Victrola ... LP
Mississippi, 1973. New Copy (reissue)... $12.99
Rootsy blues from Lum Guffin – a musician who's got way more to offer than you might guess from the title! "Walking Victrola" makes us think of some sort of gimmicky artist – and instead, Lum's got this down home approach to acoustic blues that's every bit as great as some of ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

Slim HarpoRaining In My Heart ... LP
Excello, Early 60s. New Copy (reissue)... $9.99
Classic work from Slim Harpo – an album that kicks off with one of his biggest hits ever, and follows with plenty of great tunes as well! Things here are pretty rootsy and stripped-down – lots of spare, slowish rhythms (but a few funkier ones too!) – and instrumentation that's ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

John Lee HookerHouse Of The Blues (140 gram vinyl) ... LP
Chess, Early 50s. New Copy (reissue)... Just Sold Out!
A rootsy cover, and some rootsy blues to match – a fairly stripped down session from John Lee Hooker –- and one that mostly just features vocals and guitar, plus some occasional added guitar and piano! Most of the recordings here are from the early 50s, pulled together in a full LP at ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

King/Sundazed, 1960. New Copy (reissue)... $19.99 21.98
A monster from the great John Lee Hooker – an artist who isn't usually associated with King Records, but who issued this mighty collection of sides for the label at the start of the 60s! Most of the work dates from a few years before – gritty tracks that have Hooker at his best postwar ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

John Lee HookerTravelin' ... LP
Vee Jay, 1960. New Copy (reissue)... Just Sold Out!
Rough and raw blues from John Lee Hooker – recorded with plenty of emphasis on gritty guitar and vocals, backed by a nicely understated rhythm section! The overall feel is a bit rootsier than some of the other blues work coming out from Chicago labels at the time – and Hooker's right ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

Lightnin HopkinsBlues In My Bottle ... LP
Prestige/OBC, 1961. New Copy (reissue)... $16.99 19.99
One the best of the Lightnin Hopkins records for Prestige in the early 60s – unaccompanied here, just as a lot of his most ardent admirers prefer – and it really is deeply effective work! Truth be told, we love the records from the period in which he's got a spare bit of studio backing, ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

Lightnin HopkinsGreat Electric Show & Dance ... LP
Jewel, 1969. New Copy (reissue)... $9.99
Classic blues from Lightnin Hopkins – a set that's far rootsier than you might expect from the "electric show" in the title! Hopkins plays mostly acoustic guitar here – and sings with very spare backing overall – just a bit of keyboards, bass, and drums, plus some ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

Son HouseReal Delta Blues – 14 Songs From The Man Who Taught Robert Johnson ... LP
Blue Goose, Mid 60s. New Copy (reissue)... $9.99
Rare late recordings from the great Son House – a key figure in the early blues scene in the Mississippi Delta, but heard here during some at-home sessions recorded during his rediscovery in the 60s! House has lost none of his power over the years – and, if anything, the passage of ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

Two generations of blues – presented together here in a classic Folkways package!

Mississippi John Hurt1928 Sessions (180 gram pressing) ... LP
Yazoo, 1928. New Copy (reissue)... $14.99
Vintage work from Mississippi John Hurt, but somehow amazingly clear and crisp in this classic LP presentation! The tunes are wonderfully earthy – just vocals and guitar from Hurt, in a style that's definitely blues, but which has some surprisingly jazzy inflections at times – at least ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Albert KingI Wanna Get Funky ... LP
Stax, 1973. New Copy (reissue)... $16.99 19.99
Albert King hardly has to make the statement in the title – as the record's plenty funky throughout, and has that great mix of blues with hipper 70s styles that you'd find in his best material for Stax Records! King's at the core, both on vocals and guitar – but the set also features ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

Freddy KingBossa Nova & Blues (180 gram pressing) ... LP
King/Sundazed, 1963. New Copy (reissue)... $19.99 21.98
Bossa nova and blues? Turns out they're a surprisingly great combination – but not in a mode that's really the more mainstream conception of either – and instead more of that mix of Brazilian rhythms and soul you'd find in early 60s work by The Drifters! The record's a real standout ... read more LP, Vinyl record album
(Beautiful heavy vinyl mono pressing – just like an original King Records version!)
