Champion Jack DupreeBlues From The Gutter (180 gram pressing) ... LP
Atlantic/Pure Pleasure (UK), Early 60s. New Copy (reissue)... $19.99 44.99
Blues from the gutter, with a nice current of jazz, too – thanks to participation from a hip group who really make this album from Champion Jack something special! Dupree himself sings and plays piano – often with plenty of rootsy currents – but the combo also features excellent alto from Pete Brown, who adds in plenty of soul – as well as Ennis Lowery on guitar, Wendell Marshall on bass, and Willie Jones on drums. All tracks are credited to Jack, but there's more than a few here that are traditional, and just given new arrangements by Dupree – and titles include "Strollin", "Stack-O-Lee", "Frankie & Johnny", "Bad Blood", "Junker's Blues", "Evil Woman", and "Can't Kick The Habit".

VariousRoots Of The Blues ... LP
Atlantic, Early 60s. Very Good+ ... $9.99
One of the great documents Alan Lomax put together for Atlantic records in the 60s in his Southern Folk Heritage series, featuring ethnographic recordings of rural black music. While the title of this album says it's the "roots" of the blues, there's no shortage of straight up country blues on here, and some great raw documents at that. 13 numbers in all, including "Jim & John","Chevrolet" and "Oree" by Lonnie Young, "The Wild Ox Moan" by Vera Hall, "Been Drinkin' Water Out Of A Hollow Log", "Shake 'Em On Down" and "Freight Train Blues" by Fred McDowell, "All Night Long" by Miles Pratcher, "Levee Camp Reminiscence", "Train Time" and "Drink On Little Girl" by Forest City Joe and "Levee Camp Holler" and "Eighteen Hammers" by Johnny Lee Moore. LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ James CottonJames Cotton Blues Band ... LP
Verve, 1967. Near Mint- ... $16.99
Chicago blues, but plenty darn funky – recorded with a sharpness and tightness that shows a strong soul-based influence in the second-generation electric work of James Cotton's generation! The core group here features James on harmonica and vocals – backed by piano, guitar, bass, and drums – plus a great horn section that has a distinct Chess Records feel – no surprise, given that it features Gene Barge, Paul Serrano, and Louis Satterfield! The production is by Barry Goldberg and Mike Bloomfield – and they're clearly helping Cotton tighten up his groove – and almost hit some Atlantic soul-styled modes at times. Titles include "Knock On Wood", "Sweet Sixteen", "Feelin Good", "Off The Wall", "Good Time Charlie", "Turn On Your Lovelight", "Something On Your Mind", and "Don't Start Me Talkin". LP, Vinyl record album
(Verve Forecast pressing. Cover has light wear and a Verve Forecast sticker.)
