Alexis KornerComplete Warner Brothers Recordings (Bootleg Him/Accidentally Borne In New Orleans) ... CD
Warner/Wounded Bird, Early 70s. New Copy 2CD ... $8.99 19.99
A pair of early 70s albums from the mighty Alexis Korner – back to back in a single set! First up is Bootleg Him – a record with a strange mix of elements on the outside – a confusing title, a proggy-cover image – but one that's got a sound that's a perfect maturation of the fantastic sound of Alexis Korner in the 60s! Korner's one of the overlooked heroes in British music – a strong devotee of American blues, and maybe so much so that sounds more like his inspirations than most – but never in a slavish way, as Alexis is always able to full absorb the sound, and make you feel like it's coming from his own deep soul – and over the years, he really shifted things in these slight, but powerful ways – making his music a huge influence on a big generation of UK rock acts to come. Here, the double-length set is almost a "thanks back" affair – as Korner records with a huge all-star array that includes folks like Robert Plant, Jack Bruce, Charlie Watts, Ginger Baker, Graham Bond, Lol Coxhill, Dick Heckstall-Smith, Ray Warleigh, Harry Beckett, and many more – a fantastic crossroads of all that's hip in British rock, blues, and jazz at the start of the 70s. Titles include "I Got A Woman", "Rockin", "She Foold Me", "I Wonder Who", "Dee", "Love Is Gonna Go", "Clay House Inn", "Evil Hearted Woman", "Mighty Mighty", "Sunrise", and "Hellhound On My Tail". Accidentally Borne In New Orleans (title correct, by the way!) is a record that really has Alexis Korner stretching out from the straighter blues of his 60s material – using his fantastic style on a set of tunes that show as much New Orleans influence as you might guess from the title – but also an evolved British roots rock quality too! The group is very interesting – relatively lean, and with loads of saxophone solos from Mel Collins – the reedman who made some early 70s King Crimson albums so great – plus second guitar from Peter Thorup, who also adds a bit of slide, and makes for a strongly guitar-based groove amidst some of the slightly funky rhythms. Titles include "Gospel Ship", "Lo & Behold", "County Shoes", "Don't Change On Me", "Rock Me", and "Sweet Sympathy". (Rock, Blues) CD

✨✧ VariousBlues Scene (2020 Record Store Day Release) ... LP
Decca (UK), Mid 60s. New Copy 2LP ... Out Of Stock
British blues ain't no joke – and as you'll hear by the quality of the work on this set, it had a key influence on the sound of rock and roll all over the world by the end of the 60s! In the beginning, the British blues artists were working in a purer form of the American music than some of their more chart-topping contemporaries at the time – but as the 60s wore on, British blues rock actually became a showcase for some of the most inventive guitar of the time – inspired by older American greats, but taking off with the new freedoms of the rock era. This set does a great job of documenting that shift in styles – and features a few of the best-known Brit blues acts of the late and mid 60s, as well as a few surprisingly entries from American artists – and a host of more obscure numbers by lesser-known British acts of the time. The whole thing's surprisingly wonderful – way better than any cliches you might expect, and served up with the same depth of track selection and notes as the other entries in the Decca "scene" series! Titles include "I Need Your Love" and "The Supernatural" by John Mayall's Bluesbreakers, "Key To The Highway" by Eddie Boyd, "Strut Around" by Graham Bond Organization, "Barrelhouse Woman" by Champion Jack Dupree & Mickey Baker, "Long Night" by Steve Anglo & John Mayall, "Get On The Right Track Baby" by Zoot Money, "24 Hours" by Champion Jack Dupree, "Let Me Love You Baby" by Savoy Brown Blues Band, "Roll Me Over" by Curtis Jones, and "Sweet Little Angel" by Mae Mercer.

✨✧ VariousHarry Smith B-Sides – Anthology Of American Folk Music (4CD set & book) ... CD
Dust To Digital, 1920s/1930s/1940s. New Copy 4CD ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
An amazing collection – and one that really lives up to the genius of the original Anthology Of American Folk Music put together by Harry Smith for Folkways Records! That groundbreaking set is the stuff of legend – a package that collected rare blues, folk, string band, hillbilly, and other styles from Smith's own collection of 78rpm singles – then brought together by Folkways with copious notes and a huge amount of detail that opened the door to this lost world of music for listeners over many decades. Here, the collection goes back to further Smith's choices – by offering up the flipside of all the records included in the original set – tracks that are almost always as great as the other sides, given that so many of these artists were getting a brief time in the studio, and really gave their all during the recordings. The package is one of the nicest we've ever seen on Dust To Digital – done with more than enough notes and packaging detail to live up to the spirit of the original – in a set of 84 tracks, with work by Dick Justice, Clarence Ashley, Coley Jones, Bill & Belle Reed, Buell Kazee, Buster Carter & Preston Young, Williamson Brothers & Curry, The Masked Marvel, William & Versey Smith, Carter Family, GB Grayson, Mississippi John Hurt, Uncle Eck Dunford, Uncle Bunt Stephens, Carolina Tar Heels, Furry Lewis, Ernest Phipps, Cannon's Jug Stompers, Richard Rabbit Brown, Rev Moses Mason, Alabama Sacred Harp Singers, Cincinnati Jug Band, Rev JM Gates, Jim Jackson, Breaux Freres, Blind Willie Johnson, Dock Boggs, Bascom Lamar Lunsford, Julius Daniels, Ramblin Thomas, Sleepy John Estes, and many others! (Folk/Country, Blues) CD
(Great package too – in a cigar box style, with a cool cork-covered book that has a massive amount of notes and images!)
