✨✧ Son HouseLegendary Son House Father Of Folk Blues (180 gram pressing) ... LP
Columbia, 1965. New Copy (reissue)... $16.99
A great return to recording for Son House – a musician who'd stopped playing the guitar in the postwar years, but rose again to fame during the great folk blues revival of the 60s!

Taj MahalMo' Roots ... CD
Columbia, 1974. Used ... $3.99
A well-titled album – given that Taj Mahal's music is always pretty darn rootsy – and this time around, he's also adding in a bit of Jamaican roots too, thanks to production help from Bob Marley and Aston Barrett of The Wailers! The pair help Taj out on a few numbers, mixing in some ... read more CD

Taj MahalNatch'l Blues ... LP
Columbia, 1968. Very Good+ ... $9.99
A great title for this second set from Taj Mahal – because the sound here is even more stripped-down and natural than on his first LP!

Taj MahalOooh So Good N Blues ... LP
Columbia, 1972. Very Good+ ... $7.99
A very rootsy feel overall – much more delta blues styled than some of Taj's other albums of the time – mostly with acoustic guitar behind his vocals, plus some occasional backup support from The Pointer Sisters – although even they manage to hit a rootsier feel than usual too! ... read more LP, Vinyl record album
