Junior KimbroughFirst Recordings ... CD
Big Legal Mess/Fat Possum, 1966. New Copy ... $9.99 14.99
Wicked early work from Junior Kimbrough – sides that are quite different than some of his better-known recordings over the years! The material was cut in Memphis in 1966 by producer Quinton Claunch – and it's got a spare, rootsy quality that's totally great – slow moving drums ... read more CD

Albert KingBorn Under A Bad Sign (original master recording – gold CD pressing) ... CD
Rhino/Mobile Fidelity, 1967. Used ... $24.99
One of THE electric blues records of the 60s – a seminal set by Albert King that was probably blasted out of more college dorm rooms than southside juke joints, but which still more than deserves its due! The set was recorded by Stax with a nice raw sound – guitar very much upfront, ... read more CD
(Out of print, gold CD pressing from Mobile Fidelity. Tray card has some wear and is creased on both sides.)

✨✧ Albert KingKing Albert ... LP
Tomato, 1977. Very Good ... Just Sold Out!
A tight date from 1977, and one that follows nicely in the spirit of King's later Stax sides, but with a slightly smoother groove. There's a bit of the Detroit 70s mode going on in the set – that rough-and-smooth quality that you'd find on a Don Davis production, which proves to be a ... read more LP, Vinyl record album
(Cover has small cutout notch.)

Albert KingLive Wire/Blues Power (Original Master Recording) ... CD
Stax/Mobile Fidelity, 1968. Used ... $24.99
Plenty of blues power here – a searing live set recorded by Albert King before a very enthusiastic crowd at the Fillmore in the late 60s! The album's filled with lots of King's sharp-edged guitar lines – searing with a bit more soul than your usual bluesman, possibly in part because ... read more CD

✨✧ BB KingLive At The Regal (180 gram pressing) ... LP
ABC/Geffen, 1965. New Copy (reissue)... $19.99 21.99
An excellent set by BB King – one of his best from the 60s, and a smoking live set recorded at Chicago's legendary Regal Theatre! The enthusiasm at the venue shows that BB's Memphis-honed style is a perfect fit for the electrified Chicago sound of the 60s – and the recording really ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

Freddy KingBossa Nova & Blues (180 gram pressing) ... LP
King/Sundazed, 1963. New Copy (reissue)... $23.99 24.98
Bossa nova and blues? Turns out they're a surprisingly great combination – but not in a mode that's really the more mainstream conception of either – and instead more of that mix of Brazilian rhythms and soul you'd find in early 60s work by The Drifters! The record's a real standout ... read more LP, Vinyl record album
(Beautiful heavy vinyl mono pressing – just like an original King Records version!)

Frederick Douglass Kirkpatrick & The HeartsSquare Dance With Soul ... CD
Asch, 1969. New Copy ... $12.99 16.99
A wild little record – and hardly the set of square dance material that you might expect! Instead, the album's a weird blend of folk, blues, and a little bit of soul – delivered by Frederick Douglass Kirkpatrick in a jaunty, upbeat style that's downright optimistic – at one level ... read more CD
