Roy BuchananYou're Not Alone (Japanese paper sleeve edition) ... CD
Atlantic/Universal (Japan), 1978. New Copy ... $29.99
The title might be a tipoff here – as Roy Buchanan really soars into space on an album that finds an even more majestic setting for his mighty powers on guitar – especially given that a fair bit of the album's instrumental! Roy works with a core quartet that includes Ray Gomez on ... (Rock, Blues) read more CD

Corey DennisonNight After Night ... CD
Delmark, 2017. New Copy ... $11.99 15.99

Doctor Ross – The Harmonica BossMemphis Breakdown ... CD
Sun/ORG, Mid 50s. New Copy ... $8.99 11.98
Doctor Ross is definitely the harmonica boss – one of those key postwar blues musicians who made his instrument as important to the scene as the guitar was back in the 20s and 30s! The music here was all recorded by Sun Records, but is a lot more raw and stripped-down than some of the more ... read more CD

Bear Family (Germany), 1950s. New Copy ... $19.99 22.99

Wynonie HarrisGood Rocking Tonight – Best Of The Best ... CD
Federal/King, Late 40s/Early 50s. New Copy ... $3.99 9.99
Some of the best R&B you could ever buy! Wynonie Harris was one of the all-time greats – a raw, raunchy, hard-rockin singer who was getting into more trouble with the law, ladies, and booze than most 70s rock groups combined! Wynonie's songs for King are the stuff that kick-started rock ... (Soul, Blues) read more CD

Kent/Ace (UK), Mid 60s. New Copy 2CD ... $19.99 22.99
Some of the best work ever cut by ZZ Hill – a deep soul singer with roots in Texas, but who really got the chance to shine on these 60s recordings in California!

One of the standout classics from BB King's legendary run at Kent – a classic album with a cool little cover to boot! Arrangements on the set are by Maxwell Davis – who has this great way of bringing out some of the jazzier currents in BB's music – almost the same Memphis blend ... read more CD

Mainstream/Ultra Vybe (Japan), 1972. New Copy ... $13.99

Modern/Ace (UK), Late 40s/Early 50s. New Copy ... $11.99 18.99
Early work from Jimmy Witherspoon – but the kind of sides that show that Jim had something different to offer, even from the start! The music's partly in the hip R&B mode of LA in the postwar years, but there's also a deeper sort of sound too – a bit of jazz swinging amidst the ... read more CD

Think (Japan), 1960s. New Copy ... $26.99
Blues 45s – but material that's also pretty close to the funky 45 spirit of the 60s too – given that most of these cuts have a pretty raw groove! The blues element usually comes from a guitar or harmonica element, or a way of vocal phrasing – but much of the background ... read more CD
