Chain Gang Songs – Spirituals & Blues

LP (Item 656744) Elektra, Late 50s — Condition: Very Good

(White label pressing with deep groove and blue text. Cover has light wear and some aging.)

Very Good

  • Vinyl can have some dirt, but nothing major.
  • May not shine under light, but should still be pretty clean, and not too dirty.
  • May have a number of marks (5 to 10 at most), and obvious signs of play, but never a big cluster of them, or any major mark that would be very deep. Most marks should still not click under a fingernail.
  • May not look near perfect, but should play fairly well, with slight surface noise, and the occasional click in part of a song, but never throughout a whole song or more.
  • This is clearly a copy that was played by someone a number of times, but which could also be a good "play copy" for someone new.

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.

Free Beer & Chicken
ABC, 1974. Near Mint-
Fantastic stuff from John Lee Hooker, and a record that's unlike any other he's ever done! The groove is very hard and funky, with tight drumbreaks and excellent basslines that you'd hardly expect to find on an album by a blues artist – jamming around with a tight groove that really makes us ...

Willie Dixon

I Am The Blues
Columbia, 1970. Very Good+
A long-overdue recognition of the blues contributions of Willie Dixon – a set that pulls him out of the indie ghetto and pushes him firmly into the mainstream with this key release on Columbia Records! Yet despite that placement, the style is nicely down home – a strong recreation of ... LP, Vinyl record album

Atlantic, Mid 50s. Near Mint-
Some of the greatest work ever from this Kansas City singer – material from that 50s stretch when he was reinventing himself as an R&B giant on Atlantic Records – exploding with new energy, and a fair bit of nasty lyrics too! Cuts include "Honey Hush", "Crawdad ... LP, Vinyl record album

Bobby Blue Bland

His California Album
ABC, 1973. Very Good
A nice little record from Bobby – quite different from his 60s sides for Duke/Peacock, and recorded in California (as you might guess from the title!) with a smoother more soulful approach. The style works well for Bobby – and kind of gave him a new lease on life during the 70s, as he ... LP, Vinyl record album
