RL BurnsideFirst Recordings (180 gram pressing with download) ... LP
Fat Possum/Epitaph, 1968. New Copy ... $11.99 15.99
Astoundingly strong early recordings by Mississippi blues hero RL Burnside – with violence-tinged songs performed with a clearer, though no less tough voice than we heard on the songs that made him a bit more famous in 1990s! Includes RL's takes on traditionals played on acoustic guitar and accompanied by little more than foot stomps and handclaps! Really vital stuff, whether you're hearing RL Burnside for the first time, and finding this after more famous later recordings. Includes "Just Like A Bird Without A Feather", "Goin' Down South", "Come On In", "Rollin' And Tumblin'", "Jumper On The Line", "Hobo Blues", "Sat Down On My Bnd And Cried" and more, LP, Vinyl record album
(Includes MP3 download.)

Sutro Park, 1979/1980. New Copy (reissue)... $18.99 22.99
Early work from RL Burnside – Mississippi country blues, recorded by David Evans during a few trips to Memphis in 1979 and 1980 – and pretty monumental stuff overall! The sides are billed as the first-ever recordings of RL playing electric guitar – and also the first non-solo recordings of Burnside as well – working here with a bit of additional bass and guitar from family members Joseph and Daniel Burnside, plus some drums from Calvin Jackson. Titles are a mix of traditional numbers and Burnside originals – and we'd easily argue that this set blues away most of the later work that RL recorded as a darling of the indie rock world. Titles include "Rolling &Tumbling", "Long Haired Doney", "Sitting On Top Of The World", "Begged For A Nickel", "Sound Machine Groove", "Searching For My Baby", "Shake, Little Baby", and "Can't Let You Go".

✨✧ VariousTroubled Waters – A Compilation Of Blues & Gospel Recordings By George Mitchell 1962 to 1976 ... LP
Mississippi, 1960s/1970s. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
Great field recordings from the 60s and 70s – mostly secular blues, and done in a style that's kind of a modern update of sounds from the delta! Most cuts here feature just a voice and guitar – recorded by George Mitchell with this really haunting, eerie quality that's very different than studio blues of the time – that kind of close-up and personal vibe of an ethnographic recording, with a style that's incredibly moving, even when very subtle. There's no overdone attempts at authenticity here – yet the organic power of the music really comes through – on titles that include "Careless Love" by Furry Lewis, "Hey Freddie" by Napoleon Strickland, "Poor Black Mattie" by RL Burnside, "Lucy Mae Blues" by Cecil Barfield, "Count The Days I'm Gone" by Rosa Lee Hill, "Miss Maybelle" by Jessie Lee Fortis, "My Lord" by Green Pascal, and a few instrumentals by James Davis on guitar!
