Big Bill BroonzyBig Bill's Blues ... LP
Columbia/Traffic, 1958. New Copy (reissue)... $21.99 24.98
A classic album from the great Big Bill Broonzy – issued at the end of the 50s as part of the big book in folk blues – even though Broonzy was one of the few artists keeping that style strong during the earlier postwar years! The album's wonderfully respectful – maybe more in the ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

Doctor Ross – The Harmonica BossMemphis Breakdown ... LP
Sun/ORG, Mid 50s. New Copy ... $14.99 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! 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 LP, Vinyl record album

Blind Uncle Gaspard & Delma LachneyOn The Waters Edge ... LP
Mississippi, Late 20s. New Copy ... $7.99
Bluesy material, but all sung in French – and recorded in Louisiana during the 78rpm era by Blind Uncle Gaspard and Delma Lachney! The music here is all from vintage 78s, and is a definite precursor to later cajun sounds – but done at a level that's more acoustic blues styled overall ...

Buddy GuyMan & The Blues (180 gram pressing) ... LP
Vanguard/Craft, 1968. New Copy (reissue)... $22.99 24.99
We love our Buddy Guy here in Chicago – and this set cut for Vanguard, one of his first full solo albums with his own band will always be a favorite! Buddy's late 60s sound was as charismatic as he'd always be, but there's an understated approach to his lead that's really wonderful, and hits ... read more LP, Vinyl record album
(50th Anniversary Edition on 180 gram vinyl!)

CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
Slim HarpoRaining In My Heart ... LP
Excello, Early 60s. New Copy (reissue)... Just Sold Out!
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

CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
John Lee HookerI Feel Good ... LP
Paula, 1969. New Copy (reissue)... $9.99
Gritty work from John Lee Hooker – a set recorded at the end of the 60s in Paris, at a time when that city was playing host to some of the hippest blues work of the decade! The style here is very much like John Lee Hooker of a decade before – simple, stark, and unadorned – with a ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
John Lee HookerSittin Here Thinkin ... LP
Muse, Late 50s. New Copy (reissue)... $9.99
Great gritty sides from the mighty John Lee Hooker – material with a slightly obscure origin, but recorded in the late 50s, right in a stretch when he was cutting some of his classics! Hooker's guitar and vocals are center stage – both growling with a hell of a lot of soulful power ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Lightnin HopkinsLightnin' Hopkins ... LP
Folkways, 1959. New Copy (reissue)... $19.99 21.99
A late 50s session, but an album that captures Lighnin Hopkins in a rootsy style that could well hearken back to the 78rpm blues records of the 30s – thanks to production by Samuel B Charters, who captured Hopkins alone making music in his apartment in Houston! The tracks have that ... read more LP, Vinyl record album
(Beautiful pressing – a heavy classic Folkways-style cover, and booklet too!)

CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
Son HouseLegendary Son House Father Of Folk Blues (180 gram pressing) ... LP
Columbia, 1965. New Copy (reissue)... Just Sold Out!
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! The style here is every bit as classic as some of Son's earliest music – just recorded a lot better, too ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

Howlin WolfHowlin Wolf (180 gram pressing) ... LP
Chess/Friday Music, 1962. New Copy Gatefold (reissue)... $28.99 29.98
Howlin Wolf is really getting into his thing here – tightening it up a bit from his earliest years at Chess, and moving into a groove that would forever make him one of the key artists to record for the label! The raspy, rootsy feel of earlier years is still in place – but the ... read more LP, Vinyl record album
(Nice gatefold pressing!)

Mississippi John Hurt1928 Sessions (180 gram pressing) ... LP
Yazoo, 1928. New Copy (reissue)... $14.99
Vintage work from Mississippi John Hurt, but somehow amazingly clear and crisp in this classic LP presentation! The tunes are wonderfully earthy – just vocals and guitar from Hurt, in a style that's definitely blues, but which has some surprisingly jazzy inflections at times – at least ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
Skip JamesComplete 1931 Session (180 gram pressing) ... LP
Yazoo, 1931. New Copy (reissue)... $14.99
Exactly the kind of a record to show why Skip James was really a cut above most of his contemporaries – a bluesman who works here with a sense of darkness and foreboding that really sets a chill to most of his tunes! There's less of the usual short-term sadness and smaller complaints of ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

Abner JayTrue Story of Abner Jay ... LP
Mississippi, Late 60s/Early 70s. New Copy ... $13.99

Magic SamBlack Magic ... LP
Delmark, Late 60s. New Copy (reissue)... Just Sold Out!
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!

John MayallJazz Blues Fusion (180 gram pressing) ... LP
Polydor/Elemental (Spain), 1972. New Copy (reissue)... $18.99
The title certainly gets it right – as the album definitely brings a bit of jazz into the mix for the great John Mayall – given that the set features strong work from funky jazz heavyweights Blue Mitchell on trumpet and Freddy Robinson on guitar! Both are musicians that we love for ... (Rock, Blues) read more LP, Vinyl record album

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

Roy RobertsRoy Roberts Experience ... LP
Perfect Toy (Germany), Late 60s/Early 70s. New Copy ... $7.99
A long-overdue full length set of work from Roy Roberts – a musician who's maybe best known for his more recent blues material on the Virginia scene, but who's presented here in a hip array of early funk and soul singles! The groove is nice and deep – and Roy's definitely coming from a ... (Soul, Blues) read more LP, Vinyl record album

Theotis TaylorSomething Within Me ... LP
Big Legal Mess/Fat Possum, 2018. New Copy ... $12.99 17.99
Beautiful work from Georgia gospel singer Theotis Taylor – an artist with a very long pedigree in music, still going strong into his 90s! Taylor's not the usual bluesy backwoods gospel stylist that you might expect from a release like this – as he's got a sweetness in his voice that's ...

Muddy WatersElectric Mud ... LP
Cadet/Third Man, 1968. New Copy Gatefold (reissue)... $18.99
The funk-tinged, pyschedelic soul album from Muddy Waters – one that irritated many a blues purist in its day – but it's finally reaching its earned status as a leftfield gem! You know, in the immediate years after this one (and similar funky blues albums on Chess/Cadet) was released, ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

Junior WellsComing At You (180 gram pressing) ... LP
Vanguard/Craft, 1968. New Copy (reissue)... $22.99 24.99
A great early album from Junior Wells – and one that really opens up that more soulful side of his talents that was becoming a Chicago hallmark at the time! The set was produced by Samuel Charters, but has none of the rootsy vibe of his earlier work on Folkways – and instead matches ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

Junior WellsSouthside Blues Jam ... LP
Delmark, Early 70s. New Copy (reissue)... $12.99
An incredible slice of Chicago blues – and maybe one of the most important contributions Delmark ever made to the Windy City scene!

Nighthawk, Late 40s/Early 50s. New Copy ... $15.99
