Bo DiddleyBig Bad Bo ... LP
Chess, 1974. New Copy (reissue)... $7.99
Heavy funk from the legendary Bo Diddley – one of his amazing comeback albums from the early 70s for Chess, all of which are plenty darn great!

Checker/Sundazed, 1961. New Copy (reissue)... $18.99 24.99
Hardly the love song album you might guess from the title – and instead, a classic batch of Chess Records material from the mighty Bo Diddley!

Bo DiddleyWhere It All Began ... LP
Chess, 1972. New Copy (reissue)... $9.99
Nasty nasty funk from the great Bo Diddley – one of his rare funky 70s classics for Chess – produced by Johnny Otis with a really tripped-out groove!

Slim HarpoRaining In My Heart ... LP
Excello, Early 60s. New Copy (reissue)... $9.99
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 LP, Vinyl record album

Prestige/Original Blues Classics, 1959. New Copy (reissue)... $11.99 19.98
The legendary John Lee Hooker, heard here in one of his more obscure recordings from the late 50s – at least in contrast to his famous sides for Vee Jay Records!

Vee Jay, 1960. New Copy (reissue)... Just Sold Out!
Rough and raw blues from John Lee Hooker – recorded with plenty of emphasis on gritty guitar and vocals, backed by a nicely understated rhythm section!

Lightnin HopkinsGreat Electric Show & Dance ... LP
Jewel, 1969. New Copy (reissue)... $9.99
Classic blues from Lightnin Hopkins – a set that's far rootsier than you might expect from the "electric show" in the title!

Son HouseLegendary Son House Father Of Folk Blues (180 gram pressing) ... LP

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!

King/Sundazed, 1963. New Copy (reissue)... $19.99 21.98
Bossa nova and blues? Turns out they're a surprisingly great combination – but not in a mode that's really the more mainstream conception of either – and instead more of that mix of Brazilian rhythms and soul you'd find in early 60s work by The Drifters! The record's a real standout ... read more LP, Vinyl record album
(Beautiful heavy vinyl mono pressing – just like an original King Records version!)

Junior ParkerHoney-Drippin' Blues ... LP
