Paramount, 1973. Near Mint- 2LP Gatefold ... $6.99
An unusual double-length album of tracks recorded by this bluesy soul singer in the years after she recorded for Savoy, and cut her big hit "Candy". This LP's got a harder rockin' bluesy feel to it, with the sort of R&B revival sound of the late 60/early 70. Maybelle's still great, ... (Soul, Blues) read more LP, Vinyl record album

Bobby Bland is one of those rare talents that never lost his groove, even as the years went on – maybe a bit like The Dells, in that he started out in the earliest days of soul music, but then was able to shift with the styles and the times, all without ever giving up the vocal strengths that ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

Mel Brown's fifth album – as we'd assume by the title – and a pretty darn tasty batch of funky numbers!

ABC/MCA, 1973. Very Good+ ... $8.99
A set that has BB King teaming up with southern soul maestro Dave Crawford – an arranger/producer who helps BB find a whole new groove!

Little MiltonMe For You – You For Me ... LP
Glades, 1977. Sealed ... $14.99
Little Milton's always been as much of a soul singer as a bluesman – and this overlooked gem from the 70s has him hitting equally well on both fronts!

Deram/London, 1966. Near Mint- ... $14.99
Possibly one of the best-remembered albums by John Mayall's legendary Blues Breakers combo – thanks to vocals and guitar from a young Eric Clapton!
