Roosevelt SykesMusic Is My Business ... LP
Blue Labor, 1975. Near Mint- ... $9.99
An obscure 70s album from the legendary Roosevelt Sykes – but a set that captures the singer and pianist at the height of his powers! The format here is very stripped-down – often just a focus on Sykes himself, with the occasional addition of a bit of guitar from Louisiana Red or Johnny Shines, both of whom sing slightly too. Sugar Blue also adds in harmonica on a few numbers – but the overall feel is more that of Roosevelt working by himself, almost in an after hours mode – then welcoming in some friends as they drop by to sit in on a few numbers. Titles include "Dream Woman", "Mistake In Life", "Music Is My Business", "A Good Woman", "How Long", "Funky Side", and "Leavin Chicago". LP, Vinyl record album

Bobby Blue BlandCall On Me/That's The Way Love Is ... CD
Duke/Reel Music, 1963. Used ... $14.99
One of Bobby Blue Bland's best albums ever – a stunning mix of blues and soul that's the kind of killer stuff that will make you a fan of his forever! There's no beating Bland at this point in his career – and the record is one of the finest illustrations of the power he brought to his work, subtly balancing a sense of class with rootsier down-hominess that few other singers could ever handle so well. That blend allowed Bobby to reach out to way more audiences than most of his contemporaries – and it's still equally powerful today – and the album's arrangements by Joe Scott are impeccable, with a slight touch of jazz that we totally love. The album includes classics like "That's The Way Love Is", "Call On Me", "Cry Lover Cry", "Care For Me", "Bobby's Blues", and "Honky Tonk". CD reissue is wonderful – with full listings of dates and personnel for the tunes, wonderful mastering, and pages of great notes and images! CD

Mickey BakerRock With A Sock ... CD
RCA/Bear Family (Germany), Mid 50s. New Copy ... $13.99 24.99
Groundbreaking work from the great Mickey Baker – a postwar electric guitarist who maybe took the music from the bluesy territory of T Bone Walker, and helped push it forward to the earliest roots of rock and soul! Mickey recorded these searing singles for RCA subsidiaries Vik and Groove, plus labels that include Savoy and MGM – all in the years before he was paired with singer Sylvia Robinson in the duo Mickey & Sylvia – who would hit much greater fame later on in the decade! These tracks are heavy on hard twang from Mickey, and often feature his unbridled vocals really taking over the microphone too – all in the company of endlessly hip combo players who include King Curtis on tenor, Ray Crawford on guitar, Ray Barretto on congas, Sam Taylor on tenor, Champion Jack Dupree on piano, and Panama Francis on drums. The set ends with a few recordings with Sylvia, too – and features 28 tracks in all, with very detailed session notes and writings on Baker's career. Titles include "Guitar Mambo", "Bobi", "Guitarambo", "Please Tell Me", "Greasy Spoon", "Shake Walkin", "Rock With A Sock", "Chloe", "Woe Woe Is Me", "Hello Stranger", "I'm Tired", "Oh Happy Day", "Love Me Baby", and "Down To The Bottom".

✨✧ Bobby BlandGet On Down/Reflections In Blue ... CD
ABC/BGO (UK), 1975/1977. New Copy ... $8.99 16.99
A pair of ABC Records classics from Bobby Blue Bland – back to back on a single CD! First up is Get On Down – brilliant later work by Bobby Blue Bland – done with backings that are much fuller than on his earlier albums – a mixture of strings and horns that really expand the sound! That doesn't keep things from being soulful, though – as Bobby's in incredible form vocally, really rising to the occasion of the session with some of his best vocal performances of the decade. Great throughout – and one of his few true classic sessions after the early Duke years. Titles include "Today I Started Loving You Again", "I Take It On Home", "I Hate You", "If Fingerprints Showed Up On Skin", and "Too Far Gone". Reflections In Blue is a bit of a shift for Bobby Blue Bland – a record that picks up some slight touches of the disco generation, thanks to arrangements by Michael Omartin – but a record that, thanks to Bobby's fantastic vocals, still really stands out from the pack! The shift is a bit like the one that Johnnie Taylor was taking at the time – music that's still rooted in southern soul and blues, but which has some slight updates at a few points – but never in a way that's trying to put Bobby on the dancefloor at Studio 54! Instead, warmer keyboards, strings, and some well-crafted guitar lines are used in a few spots – while other tracks retain more of the horn-heavy arrangements that made his Duke Records material so great. Throughout it all, Bland is vocally fantastic – on titles that include "It Ain't The Real Thing", "The Soul Of A Man", "I Got The Same Old Blues", "Five Long Years", "It's All Over", and "If I Weren't A Gambler".
