Slim HarpoRaining In My Heart (with bonus tracks) ... CD
Excello/Universal (Japan), 1961. New Copy ... $14.99
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 CD

Slim HarpoSting It Then! – Historic 1961 Show ... CD
Excello/Ace (UK), 1961. New Copy ... $11.99 18.99
Mindblowing work from the legendary Slim Harpo – a live recording that seems to have Harpo sounding even sharper and funkier than on his famous studio sides for Excello Records in the 60s! Slim's really on fire here – riffing guitar with a super-tight band, but in a way that's never ... read more CD

Slim HarpoTip On In ... CD
Excello/Universal (Japan), 1968. New Copy ... $14.99
One of the last albums ever from the mighty Slim Harpo – but also one of the best, as the bluesman is giving plenty of nods to the funk and soul artists who were influenced by his music – and returning the favor with a wonderfully raw set of grooves! Slim's a master on all fronts ... read more CD

Peppermint HarrisBad Bad Whiskey – The Jewel Records Sessions ... CD
Jewel/Airline, Mid 60s. New Copy ... $11.99 16.99
Peppermint Harris has deep roots in the Texas blues scene, but the singer really comes alive here working for the legendary Louisiana label Jewel Records – in a set of 60s tracks that update his sound nicely, and bring a good degree of soul into the mix as well! Some of the numbers have an ... read more CD

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)... $24.99
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

Fantasy, Early 60s. New Copy 2LP (reissue)... $22.99 24.99
Sublime live work from John Lee Hooker – a set that features the legend on solo guitar and vocals, but recorded at a level that's even crisper and more personal than some of his other albums from the time! The performance is clearly pitched more towards the folk blues audience of the time, ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

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

John Lee HookerDon't Turn Me Loose From Your Door – John Lee Hooker Sings His Blues ... LP
Atco/Friday Music, 1963. New Copy (reissue)... $28.99 29.98
Incredible stuff from the the incomparable John Lee Hooker – originally issued on Atco in 1963 – featuring Hooker in some his sparest settings ever captured! Hooker's mostly rolling alone on these tracks, tapping a foot, and telling the truth with just his emotive vocals and trebly ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

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 CD

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
