Cotillion, 1969. New Copy (reissue)
They got the title right on this one – and the album's a smoking batch of tunes that captures Freddie in all his guitar-driven glory! The set features Freddie working with a tight Atlantic studio group that includes King Curtis, David Newman, James Booker, and Billy Butler – but the ... LP, Vinyl record album

Columbia, 1965. New Copy (reissue)
A great return to recording for Son House – a musician who'd stopped playing the guitar in the postwar years, but rose again to fame during the great folk blues revival of the 60s! The style here is every bit as classic as some of Son's earliest music – just recorded a lot better, too ... LP, Vinyl record album

Blue Goose, Mid 60s. New Copy (reissue)
Rare late recordings from the great Son House – a key figure in the early blues scene in the Mississippi Delta, but heard here during some at-home sessions recorded during his rediscovery in the 60s! House has lost none of his power over the years – and, if anything, the passage of ... LP, Vinyl record album

Chess, Early 50s. New Copy (reissue)
A rootsy cover, and some rootsy blues to match – a fairly stripped down session from John Lee Hooker –- and one that mostly just features vocals and guitar, plus some occasional added guitar and piano!

Dust To Digital, Mid 60s. New Copy 2 CDs
Really unique material from JB Smith – recorded at a time when the singer was serving a life sentence at the Ramsey State Farm in Texas – and mostly unissued over the years, save for a few tracks that previously appeared on a Takoma Records collection in the 60s! Smith sings here in a ... CD

Biggest Thing Since Colossus
Blue Horizon, 1969. New Copy (reissue)
A really great moment in the spotlight for the legendary Chicago bluesman Otis Spann – an artist who often appeared on records by bigger talents of his generation, but didn't always get to shine this brightly on his own! The album's a very reverent session that has Spann's piano and vocals ... LP, Vinyl record album
CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
Yazoo, 1931. New Copy (reissue)
Exactly the kind of a record to show why Skip James was really a cut above most of his contemporaries – a bluesman who works here with a sense of darkness and foreboding that really sets a chill to most of his tunes! There's less of the usual short-term sadness and smaller complaints of ... LP, Vinyl record album

Hoodoo Man Blues
Delmark, 1965. Near Mint- (reissue)
The incredible mid 60s album from blues singer and harp blower Junior Wells and his Chicago Blues Band with Buddy Guy! This is a most pivotal set in which Junior & his players don't sound as if they're trying to imbue blues tradition with urban grit and electricity – it simply seems to ... LP, Vinyl record album
