Otis Spann with Fleetwood Mac — Biggest Thing Since Colossus ... LP 9.99

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 in the lead, with spare backing from the first incarnation of Fleetwood Mac – a setting that really lets Peter Green show off the bluesiest side of his guitar work, and maybe in a different way than some of the group's albums. And despite any blues-rock fears you might have, the album's a definite blues outing all the way through – and maybe one of the most vibrant that Spann ever recorded. Titles include "My Love Depends On You", "Someday Baby", "I Need Some Air", "She Needs Some Loving", and "No More Dogging". (White label promo.

Very Good - (minus)

  • Vinyl may be dirty, and can lack a fair amount of luster.
  • Vinyl can have a number of marks, either in clusters or smaller amounts, but deeper.
  • This is the kind of record that you'd buy to play, but not because it looked that great. Still, the flaws should be mostly cosmetic, with nothing too deep that would ruin the overall record.
  • Examples include a record that has been kept for a while in a cover without the paper sleeve, or heavily played by a previous owner and has some marks across the surface. The record should play okay, though probably with surface noise.

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.

Rare Blues In 40s
Capitol (Japan), Late 40s. Near Mint-
A very cool collection from Capitol Records, done only for the Japanese market! Side one features all tracks by Crown Prince Waterford, working in a small group with Pete Johnson on piano.

Boss Blues Harmonica
Chess, 1960s. Very Good 2LP Gatefold
A pretty nice little 2LP set – put together in the early 70s, and featuring material that Walter recorded for Chess during the 60s. As the title would imply, there's a lot of harmonica on the album – but Walter's vocals should also be given their due, as they're a bit more in the soul ... LP, Vinyl record album
Electric Mud
Cadet, 1968. Very Good- Gatefold
The funk-tinged, pyschedelic soul album from Muddy Waters – one that irritated many a blues purist in its day – but it's finally reaching its earned status as a leftfield gem! You know, in the immediate years after this one (and similar funky blues albums on Chess/Cadet) was released, ... LP, Vinyl record album
I Wanna Get Funky
Stax, 1973. Very Good+
Albert King hardly has to make the statement in the title – as the record's plenty funky throughout, and has that great mix of blues with hipper 70s styles that you'd find in his best material for Stax Records! King's at the core, both on vocals and guitar – but the set also features ... LP, Vinyl record album
Heavy Heads
Chess, 1950s/1960s. Sealed
A collection of classic blues that influenced the heavy rock generation – with older tracks from some of the best Chess artists of the early electric days! Titles include "I'm Your Hoochie Coochie Man" by Muddy Waters, "Don't Start Me Talkin" and "Sad To Be ... LP, Vinyl record album

Johnson's on vocals and guitar – with Hal Singer on tenor, Claude Hopkins on piano, Wendell Marshall on bass, and Bobby Donaldson on drums. LP, Vinyl record album
Hear My Blues
Prestige/Bluesville, 1959. Very Good-
Vocalist Al Smith is backed by Eddie Lockjaw Davis' group with Shirley Scott on organ – making for a hip little set that's got a rougher edge than most of the other vocal albums on Prestige. The label delegation for this one was Prestige's Bluesville imprint, but that's not exactly right ... LP, Vinyl record album
Live & Well
Bluesway/ABC, 1969. Near Mint- Gatefold
BB King not just live, but well-recorded in the studio too – in this classic ABC set that showcases both sides of his talents! Side one is the live set – and it's arguably better than any of the previous other concert recordings he did for the label – with a tighter, moodier feel ... LP, Vinyl record album
Stax, 1972. Very Good
Sweet electric blues from Albert King – recorded with some great full production, in a burning Memphis style that's got plenty of soul in the mix as well! The set's got a quality level that takes it past some of the cliche-ridden blues of the time – really soulful overall, with a sound ... LP, Vinyl record album
Hunh!
Bluesway/ABC, 1969. Very Good+
An unusual little album for Jimmy Witherspoon – much more down-home than most of his earlier recordings, in a style that's got a rootsy feel that's quite unusual, especially given that Jimmy was always equal parts blues and jazz singer on other sets. The move seems to be a clear attempt to ... LP, Vinyl record album
