Home Again Blues – Really The Postwar Blues

LP (Item 750432) Mamlish, Late 40s/Early 50s — Condition: Sealed
Just Sold Out!

LP, Vinyl record album

❔

A killer collection of rare blues from the Mamlish label – an imprint who brings the same sort of historical sensitivity that you might now from collections on Yazoo Records! As with that company, the music here is mostly pulled from vintage 78s, and given fresh presentation for a whole new generation of blues enthusiasts – a much-needed look at some of the more obscure artists of the period – including singers on the Chicago and Detroit scenes who were really transforming the music at the time. Titles include "Lou Ella" by Baby Face Leroy, "Worried Blues" by Hot Rod Happy, "Come On Babe" by Bluesboy Bill, "1951 Blues" by Luther Huff, "Home Again Blues" by Frankie Lee Sims, "Time For My Lovin To Be Done" by Eddie Kirkland, "Come Back Sugar Mama" by LC Green, and "Wee Wee Hours" by Charles Bradix.  © 1996-2020, Dusty Groove, Inc.
(Shrinkwrap has a small hole in one corner.)

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.

JB Hutto & His Hawks

Hawk Squat
Delmark, Late 60s. Very Good+
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 ... LP, Vinyl record album
Atlantic, 1969. Very Good+
A funky bit of blues from Otis Rush – the guitarist's debut album, and a surprisingly great batch of tracks recorded at Fame Studios! Production is by Mike Bloomfield and Nick Gravenites, who are clearly going for more of a crossover sound than Rick Hall might have given the set – but ... LP, Vinyl record album

Elmore James/John Brim

Whose Muddy Shoes
Chess, 1950s. Very Good+
A great entry in the Chess Heritage Series at the end of the 60s – one that features rare 50s Chicago recordings by Elmore James, plus some even more obscure sides by lesser-known singer John Brim! James' style is well known, and well-executed here – rough and raw, but with a good ... LP, Vinyl record album
Columbia, 1936. Very Good
... LP, Vinyl record album
Bell, Early 60s. Very Good
A 60s album that reissues Elmore James' excellent Sky Is Crying album for Sphere Sound – raw blues in the style you'd expect from this legendary bluesman. The set was recorded shortly before he passed – and titles include "Dust My Broom", "Sky Is Crying", "Stand ... LP, Vinyl record album

T Bone Walker

Good Feelin'
Polydor, 1968. Very Good+
A rare gem from T Bone Walker – one of the few hip sides he cut in Europe at the end of the 60s – and very different than his more traditional work! The set was put together by Robin Hemmingway – who also handled the hip Hal Singer record from the same time – and the ... LP, Vinyl record album

Albert King

Years Gone By
Stax, Early 70s. Very Good+
Soulful blues from Albert – recorded in Memphis with some strong arrangements by Al Jackson. The tracks aren't necessarily in the funky blues mode, but Albert's guitar and vocals are great all the way through, with that tight crossover sound that made him one of the best acts of his time in ... LP, Vinyl record album

Jimmy Johnson

Johnson's Whacks
Delmark, 1979. Near Mint-
Features Jimmy Johnson on guitar and vocals, plus a bit of harmonica on one track too – and the set features an unusual take on Dave Brubeck's "Take Five"! LP, Vinyl record album

Sonny Rollins

Now's The Time!
RCA, 1964. Very Good+
A killer album from Sonny Rollins' prime 60s years at RCA – almost a return to basics, but always with that edge that makes Rollins stand out way more than most of his contemporaries – a subtle balance between straight and modern that really makes the album crackle! The album features ... LP, Vinyl record album
Big Beat, 1994. Very Good+
MC Breed's crew steps out on their own, with production by Breed, Warren G and DJ Slip, and guest spots by MC Eiht and Bushwick Bill lets you know this LP's got a very street level approach. Includes "Caps Get Peeled", "Things In Tha Hood", "Digga Bigga Ditch", 'Roll ... LP, Vinyl record album
RCA, 1976. Very Good+
A lively band of young British players, packed into a large group with a tight swinging sound that evokes some of the better continental bands of the sort at the time – like the Clarke-Boland Ensemble, the Johnny Dankworth group, and even bits of Mike Westbrook's early work. The set list is ... LP, Vinyl record album

John McLaughlin

My Goal's Beyond
Douglas, 1970. Very Good+ Gatefold
Two sides of McLaughlin, both showcasing his spiritual exploratory inclination. The first side of this album features McLaughlin in a group with Billy Cobham, Airto, Charlie Haden, Dave Liebman and Jerry Goodman plus nice Indian touches from Mahalakshmi on sitar and Badal Roy on tabla. They ... LP, Vinyl record album
