Roy BuchananYou're Not Alone ... CD
Atlantic/Wounded Bird, 1978. Used ... $14.99
The title might be a tipoff here – as Roy Buchanan really soars into space on an album that finds an even more majestic setting for his mighty powers on guitar – especially given that a fair bit of the album's instrumental! Roy works with a core quartet that includes Ray Gomez on second guitar, Willie Weeks on bass, and Andrew Newmark on drums – a group who are almost a fusion combo at times, and who maybe help Buchanan find one of his more compelling settings of the 70s – free from some of the song structures that vocals would provide, and sounding fantastic throughout. The set does have a great vocal workout of the Neil Young tune "Down By The River" – with lead vocals by Gary St Clair – and other titles include "You're Not Alone", "The Opening/Miles From Earth", "Fly Night Bird", "Turn To Stone", and "Supernova".

Joe TurnerBig Joe Turner's Greatest Hits ... CD
Atlantic, Mid 50s. Used ... Just Sold Out!
Some of the greatest work ever from this Kansas City singer – material from that 50s stretch when he was reinventing himself as an R&B giant on Atlantic Records – exploding with new energy, and a fair bit of nasty lyrics too! Cuts include "Honey Hush", "Crawdad Hole", "The Chicken And The Hawk", "Hide & Seek", "Flip Flop And Fly", and lots lots more! CD

✨✧ VariousAnn Arbor Blues & Jazz Festival 1972 ... CD
Atlantic/Wounded Bird, 1972. New Copy 2 CDs ... Out Of Stock
A classic set from this legendary Detroit festival – a mighty assemblage of roots and jazz performers that was put together by John Sinclair! The event was legendary at the time – and has lived on strongly via this great recording by Atlantic – one that really gets at the special fire of all the performers, and their very enthusiastic welcome by the audience too! Most of the material here is blues – but the set features a key track from Sun Ra & His Solar Myth Arkestra – a performance of "Live Is Splendid" from the Space Is The Place Suite. Other tracks include "I Walk On Gilded Splinters" by Dr John, "Road Runner" by Jr Walker, "Wang Dang Doodle" by Koko Taylor, "Gambler's Blues" by Otis Rush, "Ain't That Loving You" by Bobby Blue Bland, "Honey Bee" by Muddy Waters, "Form Kinetic" by CJQ, "Dust My Broom" by Johnny Shines, and "Goin Down" by Freddie King.

Mickey Baker & OthersMickey Baker In Session – Ain't No Strain 1951 to 1962 ... CD
Jasmine (UK), 1950s/Early 60s. New Copy ... $14.99 15.99
A great overview of the guitar talents of Mickey Baker – an artist who's maybe best remembered during this time for an album on Atlantic, or his duets with the young Sylvia Robinson (as Mickey & Sylvia) – but a player who also worked on countless sessions during the years of R&B and early soul! We always knew Mickey played on some key tracks – his guitar work is as recognizable as a King Curtis saxophone solo – but this 29 track set features material we didn't even know about – most of it by some of the biggest R&B stars of the 50s! Titles include "Women Are The Root Of All Evil" by Paul Williams, "Hit Git & Split" by Young Jessie, "No Good Lover" by Mickey & Sylvia, "Juke Joint" by Sam Price, "I'm Gonna Rock Your Wig" by Sonny Terry, "Bad Hangover" by Square Walton, "I'm Doin All This Time" by Stick McGhee, "Please Louise" by Wynonie Harris, "Straighten Up Baby" by Milt Trenier, "Oh Darlin" by Johnny Frank, "All Around The World" by Titus Turner, and more by Nappy Brown, Larry Dale, Joe Turner, Ruth Brown, and others!

Joe TurnerBoss Is Back ... CD
Sunset Blvd, Late 40s/Early 50s. New Copy 2CD ... $21.99 22.99
A very hip collection of work from the great Joe Turner – material that hasn't been easily issued elsewhere, and which fills in a key chapter of Joe's career! CD1 features vintage material, and is heavy on work from the postwar years, but before Turner rose to a second wave of fame on Atlantic Records – raw tracks recorded for labels that include Freedom and Stag, often with a style that's heavy on the jazzy arrangements that other jump blues artists were using at the time. CD2 features a variety of live recordings – from 1955, 1969, 1971, and 1985 – showing how strongly Turner held onto both his vocal powers over the years, and his ability to command a concert audience. Vintage cuts include "Still In The Dark", "Adam Bit The Apple", "Just A Travelin Man", "Jumpin At The Jubilee", "Around The Clock (part 1)", "Wine O Baby Boogie", "Christmas Date Boogie", and "Baby Won't You Marry Me". Live tracks include "Call The Plumber", "Chicken & The Hawk", "Honey Hush", "Mad Blues", "Chains Of Love", "Cherry Red", "Low Down Dog", and "Flip Flop & Fly". CD

Joe TurnerReal Boss Of The Blues (with bonus tracks) ... CD
Flying Dutchman/Ace (UK), 1969. New Copy ... $8.99 14.99
One of the grooviest records ever cut by the legendary Joe Turner – a set that takes him far from his Kansas City roots, and his 50s R&B for Atlantic Records – into a mode that's maybe even more soul-based overall! The great Gene Page handles the backings here – with a tightness that comes from his years on the LA soul scene, and which mixes with the bluesier currents in the instrumentation to push Joe into some righteous late 60s grooves. Many tracks are older, but still have a cool new vibe – and the use of electric bass on the record really creates a nice sense of energy at the bottom. Titles include the ten minute "Plastic Man" – plus "Lonesome Train", "Careless Love", "Honey Hush", "How Long How Long Blues", and "Corrine Corrina". CD features two bonus live tracks – "Honey Hush" and "Yakety Yak". CD

VariousKing R&B Box Set (4CD set) ... CD
King, Late 40s/1950s. New Copy 4CD ... $21.99 29.99
A really great collection of work from the early years of King Records – music from a time when the Cincinnati label was one of the key forces in helping shape the sound of R&B in the years before soul music – always with a quality level that set them apart from the rest! Sure, plenty of folks know Atlantic Records and Chess, but back at the time of these recordings, King might have had both of them beat – a label with a fantastic ear for the sorts of acts who were turning late swing and jump blues into something leaner and groovier – a range of artists that includes vocal groups, solo singers, and instrumental combos! There's plenty of classics here, but the package digs nicely into the deeper range of King as well – and as a special bonus, there's even a few unusual spoken passages from the legendary label owner, Syd Nathan. The set features 87 tracks in all, a very big booklet of notes, and work by artists who include Smokey Smothers, Bullmoose Jackson, The Dominoes, Johnny Watson, The Charms, Tiny Topsy, Champion Jack Dupree, Mabel Scott, The Midnighters, Wynonie Harris, Lucky Millinder, Roy Brown, Lonnie Johnson, Todd Rhodes, Little Esther, Dave Bartholomew, The Swallows, Roy Byrd, Tiny Bradshaw, Sonny Thompson, The King Pins, Otis Williams & The Charms, The Ravens, Little Willie Littlefield, Hank Ballard, and many others! (Soul, Blues) CD
