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".

Joe TurnerComplete Boss Of The Blues Sings Kansas City Jazz – The Complete Mono & Stereo Recordings ... CD
Atlantic/Bear Family (Germany), 1956. New Copy 2CD ... $19.99 22.99
A real classic from blues giant Joe Turner – a singer who burst back to the mainstream on 50s Atlantic Records, thanks to a host of R&B singles that burned up the charts – but who here returns to his roots, and lays down a great set of jazzy tunes that get back to his roots in the Kansas City scene of the 30s! The shift is a bit like that Ray Charles made at the end of the 50s on Atlantic – R&B to more of a jazz-based groove – and Joe works here with great help from Pete Brown on alto, Pete Johnson on piano, Joe Newman on trumpet, and Lawrence Brown on trombone. After the raw hard R&B of Joe's bigger hit sides for Atlantic, the album's a compelling change – a reminder that Turner had roots that went much deeper than his rock and roll fame – and a depth of delivery that would keep his career strong, long after some of his 50s R&B contemporaries faded! The mix of modes – R&B and jazz – is a bit like some of the later Ray Charles albums on Atlantic – and tracks include "Low Down Dog", "Roll Em Pete", "Cherry Red", "How Long Blues", and "Morning Glories". 2CD version features the full albums in both mono and stereo, plus some bonus alternate takes – and the usual great set of notes and presentation from Bear Family!

VariousMessin With The Blues – Where It's At ... CD
Atlantic/Ace (UK), Late 40s/1950s. Used ... $5.99
A wealth of blues from the legendary Atlantic Records – served up here in a set of tracks that goes way past the obvious! In fact, even though there's a few names here that were bigger entries in the Atlantic catalog, they're represented by lesser-known tracks – and mixed in with other artists who only recorded 78 or 45rpm singles for the label – but who really left some gems behind in the label's rich catalog! A few cuts are more upbeat R&B, but most of the work has a looser, more laidback approach to blues – nicely late nite at times, and all handled with the kind of care that made Atlantic such a winner right from the start. The set's got a full book of notes on all the music, and features 25 titles that include "After Hour Session" by Frank Floorshow Culley, "Up The Line" and "Hoy Hoy" by Little Johnny Jones, "She's A Woman" by Jimmy Griffin, "Real Real Gone" by John Lee Hooker, "Break Of Day Blues" by Hal Paige, "Draggin Hours" by Odelle Turner, "Climbin Up To Heaven Blues (part 1)" by Jimmy Earle & The Jazz Kings, "Messin Up" by Chuck Norris, "Losing Hand" by Ray Charles, "Play On Little Girl" by T Bone Walker, "Cold Love" by Lucky Davis, "Blue Harlem" by Tiny Grimes, and "Drinkin Wine Spo Dee O Dee" by Larry Dale.

VariousRoots Of The Blues ... LP
Atlantic, Early 60s. Very Good+ ... $6.99
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.)

Toussaint McCallNothing Takes The Place Of You ... CD
Ronn/P-Vine (Japan), Late 60s. New Copy ... $19.99
An amazing collection of work from Toussaint McCall – a set that finally gives this classic soul singer his due! McCall stands as one of the best southern soul singers of his time – and one who's often painfully overshadowed by the better known singers on Atlantic and the larger labels. His hit "Nothing Takes The Place Of You" is well known as a soul classic – but Toussaint recorded a number of other tracks during the 60s, nearly all of them as sublime as that hit! This 24 track package is oddly one of the first times that this work has been properly collected together – and the compilation is a much-needed look at Toussaint's incredible soul talents. Trust us, you'll be playing this one again and again – right next to your Dave Godin Deep Soul volumes, or your James Carr reissues! Titles include "Nothing Takes The Place of You", "One Table Away", "What Part Do I Play", "That's Life", "Shimmy", "The Toussaint Shuffle", "I'm Gonna Make Me A Woman", "I'll Do It For You", "The Title Escapes Me", "Step By Step", and "All For A Love Like You". (Soul, Blues) CD
