Scepter, 1952. New Copy (reissue)... $11.99

Fat Possum, 1969. New Copy ... $12.99 17.98

Doctor Ross – The Harmonica BossMemphis Breakdown ... LP
Sun/ORG, Mid 50s. New Copy ... $19.99 21.98
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!

Chess, 1961. New Copy (reissue)... Just Sold Out!
About as pure as you can get for John Lee Hooker – a classic set of cuts for Chess, recorded with a feel that's almost folksy at times!

Yazoo, 1931. New Copy (reissue)... $14.99
