Buddy Guy & Junior WellsDrinkin' TNT 'N' Smokin' Dynamite ... LP
Blind Pig, 1974. Used ... Just Sold Out!
A smoking live performance from these two Chicago blues legends – recorded at the Montreux Jazz Festival in Switzerland, but with a gritty electric vibe that's very much like the duo's best work back home! The approach is very stripped-down and unadorned – just vocals by both Guy and Wells – with Buddy on guitar and Junior on harmonica – plus additional piano from Pinetop Perkins, and even the mighty Bill Wyman on bass. Wyman produced the set – very faithfully too – and titles include "How Can One Woman Be So Mean", "Hoodoo Man Blues", "My Younger Days", "Messin With The Kid", and "Ten Years Ago".

✨✧ Howlin Wolf, Muddy Waters, & Bo DiddleySuper Super Blues Band ... CD
Checker/MCA, 1967. Used ... $3.99
A group that definitely lives up to its name – given that the lineup features the Chess Records stalwarts Bo Diddley, Howlin Wolf, and Muddy Waters! The set's maybe a bit more in the mode of Wolf or Waters than some of Bo's own records – although there's a bit of that riffing spark of his at times – and the tracks are often nice and long, with more than enough room to make you feel like Phil Chess gave these guys plenty of space in the studio to hang out, and find the right way to interact. As much as we love Chess albums with short songs and a soulful punch, we really appreciate it when they can break format and open up on a session like this – which really helps create a unique moment on record! Titles include "Goin Down Slow", "Long Distance Call", "Sweet Little Angel", "Ooh Baby & Wrecking My Love Life", and "Spoonful". CD

Abner JayTrue Story of Abner Jay ... LP
Mississippi, Late 60s/Early 70s. New Copy ... $13.99
Folk soul guitar player, singer, songwriter, storyteller and genuine character Abner Jay's brilliant home recordings – the first release of his "terrible comedy blues" in far too long – courtesy of the always deep digging Mississippi label! Abner takes on the topical issues of the days with a skewed sensibility that's brilliant, and his singing, the performances and the recording quality aren't really as rough and raw as you might expect, though nowhere even close to manicured and clean sound – it's just right really for the material. Great stuff! Titles include "I'm So Depressed", "Cocaine", "Vietnam", "St James Infirmary Blues", "Cleo", "Woke Up This Morning", "Don't Mess With My Baby", "I'm Georgia Bound" and "The Reason Young People Use Drugs". (Folk/Country, Blues) LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Howlin WolfMoanin In The Moonlight ... LP
Chess, 1959. New Copy (reissue)... On November 2, 2018
Classic raspy vocals from the legendary Howlin Wolf – singing here in a way that definitely lives up to his nickname! The sound here is spare and stripped down, with very little accompaniment – usually just a bit of guitar, piano, bass, and drums – and sometimes not even all that much! Wolf's vocals are wonderful throughout – archetypal, but not nearly as cliched as some of his contemporaries came to sound – with a timeless feel that really holds up throughout. Titles include "Smokestack Lightnin", "No Place To Go", "All Night Boogie", "Evil", "I Asked For Water", "Forty Four", and "Somebody In My Home". LP, Vinyl record album

Little MiltonGrits Ain't Groceries (Live – Stax) ... LP
Stax, 1972/1984. Near Mint- ... $9.99
A smoldering live set from Little Milton, recorded by Stax when they were staging the legendary Wattstax concerts in LA! Milton didn't make the stadium bill, but like a lot of other Stax artists, brought the funk to the West Coast at a smaller venue the same night, and that set is captured here, though not issued for over a decade! The group features Milton's horn-augmented urban blues setup, and pops in his trademark funky, soulful mode that really let him crossover to audiences more into the predominant R&B and soul sound not just in LA, but nationwide! He stretches out nicely on half a dozen cuts, including "Let Me Down Easy", "Grits Ain't Groceries (All Around The World)", "Blind Man", "I Can't Quit You Baby", "That's What Love Will Make You Do" and "Walking The Back Streets And Crying".
