Raw, ragged, rough, and ready – killer early work by Bo Diddley, clearly in a class by itself!

Lightnin HopkinsCalifornia Mudslide (& Earthquake) (root beer vinyl pressing) ... LP
Modern Harmonic, 1969. New Copy (reissue)... $23.99 24.99
One of the more obscure Lightning Hopkins albums of the 60s – a very spare session recorded in Los Angeles for the Vault label – but done with a vibe that's like some of Hopkin's earliest material from the 78rpm generation! The only difference is that the recording quality is superb ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

Score/Third Man, Early 50s. New Copy (reissue)... $16.99 21.99
A late 50s collection of earlier 78rpm singles issued by Aladdin Records – material that's far rawer than the "strums" in the title might imply!

Crown, Early 50s. Very Good ... Just Sold Out!
Howlin Wolf sings the blues, and comes across in a way that influences an entire generation too – with that raw, raspy sound that made the singer a perfect blend of delta roots and contemporary sounds that were bubbling up in the postwar years!

Really raw work by Reverend Charlie Jackson – gospel in subject, but delivered in a style that's much more blues overall – thanks to a stripped-down presentation, and lots of electric guitar from the man himself!
