Excello, Early 60s. Very Good ... $149.99
Classic work from Slim Harpo – an album that kicks off with one of his biggest hits ever, and follows with plenty of great tunes as well! Things here are pretty rootsy and stripped-down – lots of spare, slowish rhythms (but a few funkier ones too!) – and instrumentation that's ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

Excello, Late 60s. Very Good- ... $24.99
One of the last albums ever from the mighty Slim Harpo – but also one of the best, as the bluesman is giving plenty of nods to the funk and soul artists who were influenced by his music – and returning the favor with a wonderfully raw set of grooves! Slim's a master on all fronts ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

Crown, Early 50s. Very Good+ ... Just Sold Out!
The tracks here are filled with the kind of skittish guitar lines that made John Lee Hooker one of the real standouts of the 50s scene – maybe one of the most rhythmic bluesmen of his generation, next to Bo Diddley!

Jewel, 1969. Very Good ... $19.99
Gritty work from John Lee Hooker – a set recorded at the end of the 60s in Paris, at a time when that city was playing host to some of the hippest blues work of the decade!

Impulse, 1965. Very Good- Gatefold ... Just Sold Out!
An oddly placed session for Hooker – considering that it was recorded for Impulse during the 60s, when most of their work was in a jazz vein.

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!
