The second Verve album from James Cotton, and oddly a rootsier effort than the first!

Bluesway/Elemental (Spain), 1969. New Copy (reissue)... $22.99 24.99
John Lee Hooker gets some great treatment here – working in a loose, groovy style for the Bluesway label – and getting a nice dose of funk right down at the core!

Vault/Rhino, 1969. Near Mint- ... $18.99
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!
