Herald/Southern Routes, 1954. New Copy (reissue)... $15.99 18.99
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!

A great return to recording for Son House – a musician who'd stopped playing the guitar in the postwar years, but rose again to fame during the great folk blues revival of the 60s!

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!
