Little MiltonBlues N Soul ... LP
Stax, 1974. Near Mint- ... $14.99
Baaad bluesy work from Little Milton – one of his killers for Stax, and a record that's equally heavy on the soul tip too! There's a strong Memphis vibe going on here – thanks to arrangements from James Mitchell, and backings from the Memphis Horns – who really do a good job of ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

Little MiltonMe For You – You For Me ... LP
Glades, 1977. Very Good+ ... $6.99
Little Milton's always been as much of a soul singer as a bluesman – and this overlooked gem from the 70s has him hitting equally well on both fronts! The set's a great precursor to Milton's 80s revival on Malaco – but has the singer working in Chicago, with these deep soul ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

Little MiltonWe're Gonna Make It ... LP
Checker, 1965. Good+ ... $19.99
A classic Chicago crossover of blues and soul – a wonderful album from Little Milton, and one that's cut with some of the same sophisticated overtones as work by Bobby "Blue" Bland at the time! The backings here are superb – arranged by Phil Wright and James Carter with a ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

Willie MabonI'm The Fixer ... LP
USA/P-Vine (Japan), Early 60s. Near Mint- ... $38.99
Really great work from singer Willie Mabon – best known as a Chicago bluesman from the 50s, but an artist who's in even more soulful territory on these sublime sides from the 60s!

Willie MabonWillie Mabon Is Back – Funky (aka Willie Mabon Sings) ... LP
Blues On Blues, Early 70s. Sealed ... $24.99
One of a number of sessions cut by Chicago bluesman Willie Mabon in the 70s – done in at a time when his talents were being re-discovered by a host of younger listeners.

Delmark, Late 60s. New Copy (reissue)... $12.99 15.99
Rough-edged blues from the west side of Chicago – a stone classic from the mighty Magic Sam – a player who was taken from us all too soon!

Magic SamLive At The Avant Garde – June 22, 1968 ... LP
Delmark, 1968. New Copy 2LP ... Just Sold Out!
A hell of a great record from Magic Sam – a really well-recorded live set from a small club in Milwaukee, and an album that really gets at all the gritty genius that made Sam so great! The set's almost equal parts blues and soul – definitely the former, but with plenty of funky ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art

Les McCannInvitation To Openness ... LP
Atlantic, 1972. Very Good+ Gatefold ... Just Sold Out!
Wild electric work from Les McCann – an album of free, open sounds that's quite a change from his styles of the 60s – and from most of his other work of the 70s too! Side one features an extended 26 minute track titled "The Lovers" – a slow-building number that has Les ... (Jazz, Blues) read more LP, Vinyl record album
