RCA/Bear Family (Germany), Mid 50s. New Copy ... $13.99 24.99
Groundbreaking work from the great Mickey Baker – a postwar electric guitarist who maybe took the music from the bluesy territory of T Bone Walker, and helped push it forward to the earliest roots of rock and soul!

Jazz Line (Germany), 1976. New Copy ... $15.99
The Crescent City legend is captured here in a small club in Germany during the 70s – but James Booker is playing solo, with a style that's very close to his best New Orleans roots!

✨✧ Bo DiddleyBig Bad Bo ... CD
Chess/Get On Down, 1974. New Copy ... Just Sold Out!
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!

Rev Charlie JacksonGod's Got It – The Legendary Booker & Jackson Singles ... CD
Case Quarter, 1970s. New Copy ... $13.99 14.98
Really raw work by Reverend Charlie Jackson – gospel in subject, but delivered in a style that's much more blues overall – thanks to a stripped-down presentation, and lots of electric guitar from the man himself! The Rev comes across here like some cat recorded out at a juke joint in ... read more CD

Louisiana RedLouisiana Red – At Onkel Po's Carnegie Hall Hamburg 1977 ... CD
Jazz Line (Germany), 1977. New Copy 2CD ... $13.99
Well-recorded material from Louisiana Red – a blues musician who really hit his stride in the 70s, but with a style that feels a lot more vintage overall! Red works here with just vocals and guitar – and a bit of harmonica – in a mode that's like the 60s albums on Arhoolie, but ... read more CD

Siegel Schwall BandLive – The Last Summer ... CD
Wooden Nickel/Wounded Bird, 1973. New Copy ... $10.99 11.98
Live material from Chicago's Siegel Schwall Band – recorded in small clubs in the Midwest, very much the sort of venues from which they sprang! There's as much of a no-nonsense vibe going on here as on their studio albums, and maybe even a bit more grit overall – especially on the ... (Rock, Blues) read more CD

Siegel Schwall Band953 West ... CD
Wooden Nickel/Wounded Bird, 1975. New Copy ... $8.99 11.98
The album's title is a reference to an address on the north side of Chicago – 953 West Belmont Ave – somewhat gritty at the time the album was recorded, now not too far from a giant Target discount store! Yet the address, the cover, and the overall presentation are a great example of ... (Rock, Blues) read more CD

Vanguard/Wounded Bird, 1966. New Copy ... $10.99 14.99
The debut album from a group who became a seminal bridge on the Chicago scene in the 60s – a blue-eyed blues quartet who got their start on the south side, then helped bring the music up north!

Siegel Schwall BandSiegel-Schwall '70 ... CD
Vanguard/Wounded Bird, 1970. New Copy ... $10.99 14.99
The Siegel Schwall Band change things up a bit here – leaving behind the rootsy Sam Charters production of their first few albums for the the heady sound of Dunwich – and picking up just a bit of electric piano and electric bass in the process! The style is still rooted in blues, but ... (Rock, Blues) read more CD

Johnnie TaylorWall To Wall ... CD
Malaco/Ultra Vybe (Japan), 1985. New Copy ... $14.99
A set that's got maybe more of a contemporary crackle than some of the classic work of Johnnie Taylor – but a record that also shows the ever-evolving style of one of the greatest voices in bluesy soul! The record steps off a bit from the territory that Johnnie hit so well on Columbia – ... (Soul, Blues) read more CD

✨✧ Muddy WatersUnk In Funk ... CD
Chess/Get On Down, 1974. New Copy ... $8.99 14.98

VariousGreat R&B Instrumentals ... CD
Ace (UK), 1950s. New Copy ... $11.99 18.99
The R&B generation gave us plenty of raw soul singers and pre-soul vocal groups – but that special time in music was also a moment when instrumental tracks could still burn brightly too – when a tenor sax or searing guitar line could have every bit as much power as the human voice! ...

Fantastic sounds from the Bay Area scene of the 50s – more than enough to showcase a legacy of R&B as strong as postwar work from LA!
