Ladies Sing The Blues – Roots Of Rock 'N' Roll Vol 5

LP (Item 754347) Savoy, Late 40s/1950s — Condition: Near Mint-
2LP Gatefold
Great R&B work from a range of Savoy singers – Big Maybelle, Little Esther, Albinia Jones, Miss Rhapsody, and Linda Hopkins – all 78rpm material, packaged here with great notes!  © 1996-2024, Dusty Groove, Inc.
(Cover has a cut corner, large promo sticker, and some ring impressions.)

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.

Howlin Wolf

Howlin Wolf Album
Cadet, 1968. Very Good+
A killer album of funky blues – recorded by Howlin Wolf during the period when Chess/Cadet was backing its older artists up with some of the newer funk musicians it had working in its studios! The overall sound works quite well – and although purists at the time moaned at the way ... LP, Vinyl record album

Strong Persuader
Mercury, 1986. Near Mint-
(A great copy!) LP, Vinyl record album
Columbia, 1972. Near Mint-
A very rootsy feel overall – much more delta blues styled than some of Taj's other albums of the time – mostly with acoustic guitar behind his vocals, plus some occasional backup support from The Pointer Sisters – although even they manage to hit a rootsier feel than usual too! ...

Buddy Guy

This Is Buddy Guy
Vanguard, 1968. Near Mint-
A classic killer from Buddy Guy – the kind of electrified Chicago sounds that made him a legend, right out of the box! The album features work from AC Reed on tenor, plus trumpet, baritone, and more guitar – all arranged with a soulful kind of groove by Ed Bogas! Titles include "I ... LP, Vinyl record album

Taj Mahal

Natch'l Blues
Columbia, 1968. Very Good+
A great title for this second set from Taj Mahal – because the sound here is even more stripped-down and natural than on his first LP! Taj turns in a lot more original tunes this time around – and is in wonderfully comfortable territory with his own lead lyrics, sung alongside his own ... LP, Vinyl record album
Stax, 1972. Very Good+ 2LP Gatefold
A musical – but a pretty darn soulful one, as you might expect from the mighty Melvin Van Peebles! The soundtrack features tunes from Van Peebles early 70s stage production Don't Play Us Cheap – an attempt to bring the modes explored in his film work to the theater – and given ... LP, Vinyl record album
Stax, 1967. Very Good+
The Memphis sound, working hard overseas – in a smoking live set that has some Stax Records stars working in Paris! There's a tightness here that arguably goes past the studio work by the singers – possibly because everyone's working in the same space, with the same backing group ... LP, Vinyl record album

Whispers

Whispers (1979)
Solar, 1979. Near Mint-
One of our favorite albums by The Whispers – a later gem with some really great songs, and a sound that shows the group strongly moving into hit territory! In some way, the album's almost a return to the mellow harmony soul of the group's roots – slowing down the pace from the disco ... LP, Vinyl record album
