✨✧ RL BurnsideSound Machine Groove (180 gram blue vinyl pressing) ... LP
Sutro Park, 1979/1980. New Copy (reissue)... Temporarily Out Of Stock
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". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ RL BurnsideFirst Recordings (180 gram pressing with download) ... LP
Fat Possum/Epitaph, 1968. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
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.)

✨✧ RL Burnside/T Model Ford/Paul JonesFat Possum Records – Not The Same Old Blues Crap 2 (colored vinyl with bonus download) ... LP
Fat Possum, Early 70s/Early 90s. New Copy (reissue)... Out Of Stock
An excellent collection from Fat Possum Records – and one that shows the label's ongoing commitment to blues that goes way past the mainstream! They definitely get the title right on this series – because the tracks here are far from the tourist blues and frat-based styles that the bigger artists were laying down by the time of the compilation – and the music is instead from the kind of underground southern artists who've still kept the older blues styles alive and well – and continually evolving into the 21st Century! Some tracks are from Fat Possum's 90s recordings that finally gave some of these musicians exposure outside the south – others are from rare recordings of late 60s/early 70s that only saw limited vinyl release. Titles include "Black Mattie" by Robert Belfour, "Goin Back Home" and "I'm Gonna Leave" by Paul Jones, "Please Tell Me You Love Me" by Asie Payton, "Easy Rider" by Scott Dunbar, "Walkin Blues" and "Goin Down South" by RL Burnside, "Meet Me In The City" and "I Feel Good Again" by Junior Kimbrough, and "Sail On" by T Model Ford.

✨✧ VariousTroubled Waters – A Compilation Of Blues & Gospel Recordings By George Mitchell 1962 to 1976 ... LP
Mississippi, 1960s/1970s. New Copy ... Temporarily 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!

✨✧ VariousFat Possum Records – Not The Same Old Blues Crap Vol 3 ... LP
Fat Possum, Early 2000s. New Copy (reissue)... Out Of Stock
The third in Fat Possum's Not The Same Old Blues Crap series – and a pretty substantial creative left turn in some ways, though still focused on raw, hardscrabble blues! Fat Possum figureheads RL Burnside and T-Model Ford are in the mix, as you'd hope, along with Charles Caldwell, Little Freddie King and other blues heavies, but it's also got some reverent cuts by (then) upstarts The Black Keys, the Iggy & The Stooges and even Lyrics Born – showing the range of influence the one time unknown blues figures Fat Possum championed at the time had on various cats. Includes "Hadn't I Been Good To You" by Charles Caldwell, "Set You Free" by the pre-superstar Black Keys, "I Found Out" by Nathaniel Mayer, Juinior Kimbrough's "You Better Run" as covered by Iggy & The Stooges, "Crack Head Joe" by Little Freddie King, "Goin' Down South" by RL Burnside feat Lyrics Born, "Cocaine Bill" by Kenny Brown, "Pushin' My Luck" by Robert Belfour, "Goodbye Slim Harpo" by Robert Pete Williams and "Bad Man" by T-Model Ford.
