Smithsonian Folkways, 1910s/1920s/1930s/1940s. New Copy 5CD & Hardcover Book
The most awe-inspired set devoted to Huddie Ledbetter we could ever hope to see – a real treasure from Smithsonian Folkways – with a bunch of never-before released tracks! It's incredibly hard to believe that before this 2015 box, there had never been a comprehensive, full career ... CD

Call On Me
Duke, 1963. Very Good+
One of Bobby Blue Bland's best albums ever – a stunning mix of blues and soul that's the kind of killer stuff that will make you a fan of his forever! There's no beating Bland at this point in his career – and the record is one of the finest illustrations of the power he brought to his ... LP, Vinyl record album

CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
Southside Blues Jam
Delmark, 1969/1970. Near Mint-
An incredible slice of Chicago blues – and maybe one of the most important contributions Delmark ever made to the Windy City scene! The album captures Junior Wells in all his rough and raw brilliance – working in territory that's quite similar to the Chess Records vibe of the early 60s ... LP, Vinyl record album

Live Wire/Blues Power
Stax, 1968. Near Mint-
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 ... LP, Vinyl record album

Private, 1997. Used

CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
Grapevine (UK), Late 60s/Early 70s. New Copy
Sockin soul from an under-heard Chicago legend! Johnny Moore was one of the best deep soul singers in the Windy City scene of the late 60s – but an artist who only ever recorded singles across a variety of labels, so he's not as well remembered as album-oriented artists, like Syl Johnson or ... CD

CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
Sweet Home Chicago
Jewel/Fuel, Mid 50s. Used
Vintage blues from Robert Lockwood Jr – material cut in Chicago, early in his career – at a time when it seemed like Lockwood was set to become one of the breakout talents on the Windy City scene! And although Lockwood left the city in the 60s, and spent most of his 50s Chicago years ... CD

Hawk Squat (with bonus tracks)
Delmark, Late 60s. New Copy
One of the most dynamic, most on-fire blues albums recorded during the 60s by Delmark Records – a set that bursts right out of the Chicago clubs with the guitar of JB Hutto firmly in the lead! Hutto's a killer right from the start – singing and playing with a ferocity that easily ... CD

Raining In My Heart
Excello, Early 60s. New Copy (reissue)
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 ... LP, Vinyl record album
CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
Checker, 1960. New Copy (reissue)
Have guitar, will travel – and back in the day, Bo Diddley was going pretty darn far with great material like this! The album's a real standout, even in the classic Chess catalog of the early years –no filler, no covers, just all original material by Bo Diddley – done in that ... LP, Vinyl record album
