You Can't Get Enough Of That Stuff

LP (Item 693698) Yazoo, 1929/1975 — Condition: Near Mint-

No hoke here – just a host of rare 78rpm recordings from The Hokum Boys – a wonderfully tight combo with a nice degree of jazz in their music, too! In a way, the tunes here represent a great bridge between blues and early jazz – and point the way towards the rise of acoustic swing in the 30s – thanks to the combo's great piano and guitar-driven rhythms! Vocals are often quite playful – hinting at a Cab Calloway style – and titles include "Pat A Foot Blues", "Selling That Stuff", "It's All Gone Now", "Only The Blues", "Gambler's Blues", "Went To His Head", and "Let Me Have It".  © 1996-2019, Dusty Groove, Inc.
(Gold Peacock label pressing. Not the recent reissue.)

Near Mint - (minus)

  • Black vinyl that may show a slight amount of dust or dirt.
  • Should still be very shiny under a light, even with slight amount of dust on surface.
  • One or two small marks that would make an otherwise near perfect record slightly less so. These marks cannot be too deep, and should only be surface marks that won't affect play, but might detract from the looks.
  • May have some flaws and discoloration in the vinyl, but only those that would be intrinsic to the pressing. These should disappear when the record is tilted under the light, and will only show up when looking straight at the record. (Buddah and ABC pressings from the 70's are a good example of this.)
  • May have some slight marks from aging of the paper sleeve on the vinyl.
  • Possible minor surface noise when played.

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.

1928 Sessions
Yazoo, 1928. Near Mint-
Vintage work from Mississippi John Hurt, but somehow amazingly clear and crisp in this classic LP presentation!

Blind Boy Fuller

Truckin My Blues Away
Yazoo, Late 30s. Near Mint-
A great little record from Yazoo – almost worth the price alone for the great Robert Crumb cover art – but a real treasure considering the vintage recordings by Blind Boy Fuller underneath! The set brings together Fuller recordings from the years 1936 to 1939 – surprisingly well-r ... LP, Vinyl record album

Yazoo, 1927/1928. Near Mint-
Two years might be a short time for any artist to be in their "prime" – but the quality of these sides is so strong, they've supported the reputation of Furry Lewis for many many years! The set features wonderful low-key material recorded for 78s in the years 1927 and 1928 – ... LP, Vinyl record album

Yazoo, Mid 30s. Near Mint-
A great document of an amazing blues tradition – bottleneck guitar, offered up here in a host of original 78s from the 30s! The style is one that was co-opted often in later years, but is presented here at its roots – with a nice, gritty feel overall – and use of the mode that's ... LP, Vinyl record album

Muddy Waters

Electric Mud
Cadet, 1968. Near Mint-
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

Albert King

Born Under A Bad Sign
Stax, 1967. Near Mint-
One of THE electric blues records of the 60s – a seminal set by Albert King that was probably blasted out of more college dorm rooms than southside juke joints, but which still more than deserves its due! The set was recorded by Stax with a nice raw sound – guitar very much upfront, ... LP, Vinyl record album

Sonny Boy Williamson

One Way Out
Chess, Late 50s/Early 60s. Near Mint-
A great little collection of work that Sonny Boy Williamson recorded for Chess in the 50s and early 60s – presented here as one of the well-done archival packages that Chess was doing in the early 70s, as interest in their classics was coming back again. Most of the numbers here feature ... LP, Vinyl record album
