King Curtis & Champion Jack DupreeBlues At Montreux ... LP
Atlantic, 1971. Very Good+ ... $13.99
One of the last albums that King Curtis ever recorded – and an unusual session of mostly blues-based material, recorded at the Montreux Jazz Fest with Champion Jack Dupree! In a way, the setting really unlocks some of Dupree's more jazz-oriented modes – in a group that features Curtis on tenor and alto, Jack on piano and vocals, and rhythm from Cornell Dupree on guitar, Jerry Jemmott on bass, and Oliver Jackson on drums! Things start out rootsy, but really take off as the record moves on – and the setting actually gives Curtis a chance to stretch out a lot more than most of his previous recordings for Atlantic. Titles include "Get With It", "Sneaky Pete", "Junker's Blues", "Everything's Gonna Be Alright", and "I'm Having Fun". (Soul, Blues) LP, Vinyl record album
(Cover has surface and edge wear, a peel from an old sticker, remnants of another sticker, a cut-out notch and the top seam has been taped.)

John Lee Hooker/Sticks McGheeHighway Of The Blues ... LP
Audio Lab, Mid 50s. New Copy (reissue)... $9.99 12.98
Rare King Records material from these two postwar blues greats – each of whom get a single side of the record! Sticks McGhee really shines on side one – with that playful, jazzy approach to blues that he used on his late 40s recordings for Atlantic – almost somewhere in the territory of Louis Jordan, especially given Sticks' sense of wit – but served up in more of an R&B mode, with similar styles to Roy Brown's King material of the early 50s. Titles include "Head Happy With Wine", "Get Your Mind Out Of The Gutter", "Jungle Juice", "Whiskey Women & Loaded Dice", and "Sad Bad Glad". John Lee Hooker is in a much rootsier mode on side two – recorded in a rough-edged style that's almost back to the delta, save for the use of electricity on the guitar! The spare setting really unlocks Hooker's power – and titles include "Nightmare Blues", "Devil's Jump", "Thinking Blues", "Late Last Night", and "Moaning Blues". LP, Vinyl record album
