One of a number of sessions cut by Chicago bluesman Willie Mabon in the 70s – done in at a time when his talents were being re-discovered by a host of younger listeners. The overall style is in the older mode of Willie's classic years – relatively spare, with backing by a Chicago group that includes Little Mack Simmons on harmonica and Mighty Joe Young on guitar. Willie's on piano and vocals, and titles include "Trouble Blues", "I Wonder", "Worry Blues", "Hey Gal", "Thinkin About You", "Going To Get You", and "Hang Loose Baby". (Still sealed! Cover has a small cutout hole in one corner, and a very light stain near the bottom.)  © 1996-2017, Dusty Groove, Inc.

Sealed

This is what it says, that the record is still held fast in shrink-wrap. We tend to be pretty suspicious about these things, so if the shrink-wrap doesn't look original, or if the record seems to have undergone some damage over time, we'll probably take it out of the wrapper to ensure that it's in good shape — which is why we don't have more of these. In some cases the shrink-wrap may be torn in spots, but if it's not possible the record has been taken out and played, the record will still qualify as "Sealed".

Additional Marks & Notes

If something is noteworthy, we try to note it in the comments — especially if it is an oddity that is the only wrong thing about the record. This might include, but isn't limited to, warped records, tracks that skip, cover damage or wear as noted above, or strictly cosmetic flaws.

ABC, 1972. Very Good+
A wicked little album that has John Lee Hooker recording in San Francisco with a bunch of the other funky talents gracing the ABC/Impulse label at the time!

Vee Jay, 1963. Very Good+
Plenty big work from the great Jimmy Reed – just the kind of rough and ready material that made him one of the most influential bluesmen of his time!
