Out Of Stock

CD

✈

Tough mid 60s blues from Skip James – recorded by Richard Spottswood – and it's among Skip's best recordings! Greatest Of The Delta Blues Singers features recordings made in 1964 – at a time when James was being celebrated by the folk community – and it's also a time when he was in ailing health – which adds some incredible depth to the material – as if Skip's bluesy truth would ever be questioned! Includes "Hard Time Killin' Floor Blues", "Sick Bed Blues", "Devil Got My Woman", "Illinois Blues", "All Night Long", "Cherry Ball Blues", "I Don't Want A Woman To Stay Out All Night Long" and more.  © 1996-2021, Dusty Groove, Inc.

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.


Used CD Grade

We have only one grade for non-new CDs at Dusty Groove — "Used CD". This grade is somewhat all-encompassing, but we choose it because we try to offer Used CDs in the best shape possible.

When you purchase a Used CD you can expect the disc to be free of all but the lightest of surface marks, the case to be clean (we often change the cases ourselves), and the booklet to be in good shape. Used CDs may show some signs of use but if there are significant details or defects we will list them underneath the item — just like we do with LPs — so look there for notes on cutout marks, stickers, promo stamps or other details.

All of our Used CDs are guaranteed to play without skipping or flaws. If you purchase a Used CD from Dusty Groove, you have 1 week to play it to determine that it plays correctly — and if it does not, then you may return it for a full refund.

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 ... CD

Hung Down Head
Chess, 1950s. Used
Great early work from Lowell Fulson – tracks recorded in the 50s for Chess Records – all in Chicago, and a fair bit more obscure than some of Lowell's better-known sides from the 60s! There's still a nicely gritty groove going on here – a style that's rooted in blues, but which ... CD
Imperial/EMI, Early 50s. Used 2 CDs
An incredible collection – one no home should be without! This isn't blues, this is T Bone Walker – a guitar pioneer, and a musician who's got just as much jazz in his style too. Fantastic recordings throughout – 52 tracks in all. CD
