✨✧ Roy HawkinsBad Luck Is Falling ... CD
Ace (UK), Late 40s/1950s/Early 60s. New Copy ... $11.99 18.99
Stunning sounds from a blues singer that hardly ever got his due – but who we'd rank right up there with the 50s best singers like Pee Wee Crayton or Smokey Hogg! Like both of those singers, Roy Hawkins has a way of blending older roots with postwar touches that include a bit of jazz – ... read more CD

Screamin Jay HawkinsScreamin Jay Hawkins (10 inch LP) ... LP
Fontana/Be! (Germany), Mid 50s. New Copy (reissue)... $15.99
A beautiful early European issue of material from the legendary Screamin Jay Hawkins – a special 10" record that was issued in France in the 50s, where it was clear that Screamin Jay was off to a mighty strong start! The set includes a number of Hawkins' excellent, offbeat tunes from ... (Soul, Blues) read more LP, Vinyl record album

Smokey HoggDeep Ellum Rambler ... CD
Ace (UK), Late 40s. New Copy ... $11.99 18.99
Raw sounds from Smokey Hogg – an artist with Texas roots, but presented here on a series of late 40s sides for LA's Modern Records label – who do a surprisingly great job of staying true to his style! Most numbers have a strong focus on Smokey's voice and acoustic guitar lines – ... read more CD

Smokey HoggMidnight Blues ... CD
Modern/Ace (UK), Late 40s/Early 50s. New Copy ... $11.99 18.99
Smokey Hogg's a musician with roots in Texas, and a huge recorded legacy from labels on the west coast in the postwar years – but unlike some of his contemporaries, the shift to the west never seemed to take the Texas out of Smokey's style too much – as you'll hear on the tracks in this ... read more CD

Smokey HoggServe It To The Right – The Combo & Modern Recordings 1947 to 1952 ... CD
Modern/Ace (UK), Late 40s/Early 50s. New Copy ... $11.99 18.99
A great second chapter of work from Smokey Hogg's years at the Modern Records label – material that's got a bit more of a west coast polish than the rootsy vibe of his previous sides! Smokey still has plenty of Texas in his vocals and work on guitar, but the arrangements here often emphasize ... read more CD

✨✧ John Lee HookerBurnin' ... LP
Vee Jay, 1962. New Copy (reissue)... $11.99
Plenty of Burnin from John Lee Hooker, and about as classic as you can get for his Vee Jay years – especially considering that the album starts out with Hooker's killer cut "Boom Boom" – a number that may well have set fire to a whole generation of British and American rockers! ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

BGO/ABC (UK), 1974. New Copy ... $16.99 19.98
Fantastic stuff from John Lee Hooker, and a record that's unlike any other he's ever done! The groove is very hard and funky, with tight drumbreaks and excellent basslines that you'd hardly expect to find on an album by a blues artist – jamming around with a tight groove that really makes us ... read more CD

Crown/Southern Routes, 1963. New Copy ... $15.99 18.99
About as classic as you can get for the legendary John Lee Hooker – a set of recordings from his early postwar years that perfectly define the special touch and electric genius of his music! The sound here is often as spare as rural acoustic blues from years back – but Hooker's using ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

John Lee HookerHouse Of The Blues (140 gram vinyl) ... LP
Chess, Early 50s. New Copy (reissue)... $16.99
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

John Lee HookerI Feel Good ... LP
Paula, 1969. New Copy (reissue)... $9.99
Gritty work from John Lee Hooker – a set recorded at the end of the 60s in Paris, at a time when that city was playing host to some of the hippest blues work of the decade! The style here is very much like John Lee Hooker of a decade before – simple, stark, and unadorned – with a ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

John Lee HookerJohn Lee Hooker Presents His House Rent Boogie ... CD
Modern/Ace (UK), Late 40s/Early 50s. New Copy ... $11.99 18.99
With music this great, it's hard to imagine John Lee Hooker ever having to throw a rent party – because the sounds here should have made him a superstar right from the start! The package is a wonderful collection of raw, early cuts that Hooker recorded for the Modern label in LA – a ... read more CD

King/Sundazed, 1960. New Copy (reissue)... $23.99 24.98
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 HookerOn The Waterfront ... LP
Wand, Late 60s. New Copy (reissue)... $9.99
A really unique album from the great John Lee Hooker – done for the mostly-soul Wand Records label, and with a feel that's quite different than some of Hooker's other records! There's a distinctly jazzy undercurrent running through the record at times – sometimes with some moody, ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Lightnin HopkinsBlue Lightnin' ... LP
Jewel, 1965. New Copy (reissue)... $9.99
A really nice later set from legendary Texas blues titan Sam "Lightnin'" Hopkins – done up for the Jewel label with a bit of the spark that was missing from the hit & miss work he did earlier in the decade for Bluesville! Blue Lightnin' also has a down and dirty style in spots, ... read more LP, Vinyl record album
