Little MiltonGrits Ain't Groceries (Checker) ... CD
Checker (Japan), 1969. New Copy ... $13.99
One of the funkiest albums ever cut by Little Milton – done at the end of the 60s with some hard Chicago soul arrangements from Gene Barge, and an overall style that mixes electric blues with some of the hard soul coming from the city's west side scene at the time! The album's much more of a ... read more CD

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!

✨✧ Taj MahalBrothers ... CD
Warner/Wounded Bird, 1977. New Copy ... $3.99 12.98
One of the better records that Taj Mahal cut during in the later 70s – probably because it was a soundtrack, and pushed the groove into some interesting places – with Taj's gruff vocals working over some Caribbean rhythms and modern blues, and more smoothed out moments! The latter ... read more CD

Polydor, 1971. Near Mint- 2LP Gatefold ... $9.99
John Mayall's definitely getting back to his roots here – and he's also getting help from an all-star cast as well! Mayall's vocals and piano are in fine form – almost with a rough-edged Blues Breakers sort of vibe, but sometimes a bit funkier too – in ways that strongly show the ...

Mississippi Fred McDowellDelta Blues (blue vinyl pressing with download) ... LP
Arhoolie, 1964. New Copy (reissue)... Just Sold Out!
Delta blues, recorded right near their source – an early southern recording by Arhoolie Records – one that captures Mississippi Fred McDowell at his best! Fred's mostly on acoustic guitar, alongside his tremendous vocals – really stretched-out, well-inflected lyrics that could ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

Brownie McGhee & Sonny TerryBack Country Blues ... CD
Southern Routes, Late 40s/Early 50s. New Copy ... $12.99 13.99
The team of Sonny Terry and Brownie McGhee may be best remembered as a folk-blues act from their later recordings – but back at the start, on tracks like this, the duo had a nicely raw vibe – and a fair bit of R&B in their approach! Much of this work was recorded for the Savoy ... read more CD

Memphis SlimLegend Of The Blues ... CD
Jubilee/Wounded Bird, 1967. New Copy ... $3.99 11.98
A right-on and rootsy set from Memphis Slim – a record that's steeped in older blues modes, but also has a hipper 60s edge as well! The album almost reminds us of some on Prestige from the time that mixed blues and soul jazz – no surprise, as Slim's group for the date features guitar ... read more CD
