Little Milton's always been as much of a soul singer as a bluesman – and this overlooked gem from the 70s has him hitting equally well on both fronts! The set's a great precursor to Milton's 80s revival on Malaco – but has the singer working in Chicago, with these deep soul ... read moreLP, Vinyl record album

George Thorogood & The Destoryers —
Maverick ... LP EMI, 1985. Near Mint- ...
An interesting 70s session from Jimmy – rougher and rootsier than most of his jazz-inflected 60s recordings, in a style that was clearly trying to cross him over to the college kids who were buying so much blues at the time! The set's still got a lot of jazz players on it – including ... read moreLP, Vinyl record album
Joe Turner returns to his roots, and lays down a fairly straight set of bluesy tunes from the old days of the Kansas City scene – done with a small jazz combo that includes work by Joe Newman, Lawrence Brown, Pete Brown, and Pete Johnson! After the raw hard R&B of Joe's bigger hit sides ... read moreLP, Vinyl record album
A pretty nice revival record from Roosevelt Sykes – cut many years after his late 40s hits, but done in a sweet small combo mode that sounds mighty nice! Instrumentation only includes guitar, bass, drums, and saxophone – along with Roosevelt's own piano – and the sax really gets ... read moreLP, Vinyl record album

Very groovy work from John Mayall – a double-length set from the early 70s, featuring some great help from American soul jazz musicians!

(White label promo. Cover has some wear, pen, and a promo sticker.)
A set that has BB King teaming up with southern soul maestro Dave Crawford – an arranger/producer who helps BB find a whole new groove! Crawford's approach is wonderfully warm and soulful – almost a Hi Records sort of take on the music, which brings King's traditional blues into much ... read moreLP, Vinyl record album
A nice collection of Percy's classic work for Specialty Records from the 50s – issued here in a full LP package from 1970, when Percy was enjoying a bit of a revival. The work's a strong batch of tunes with a sophisticated smooth and bluesy feel – clearly a strong percursor to soul ... read moreLP, Vinyl record album
Bobby Rush —
Sue ... LP LaJam, Mid 70s. Very Good ...
One of Bobby's greatest albums – a mix of electric blues and southern soul, forged in the heat of the Malaco studios in Jackson! The album's titled after Rush's incredible 8 minute track "Sue" – a tale of young love that has a hilarious monologue in the middle about this ... read moreLP, Vinyl record album

Joe Turner & Count Basie —
Bosses ... LP Pablo, 1974. Near Mint- ...
Rare 60s work from Tommy Tucker – a bluesman who disappeared from the limelight almost immediately after his big early hit for Chess! Most of this material features small groups – and one even includes a young Donny Hathaway on keyboards! LP, Vinyl record album
