National Downhome Blues Festival Vol 3
LP (Item 906711) Southland, 1984 — Condition: Near Mint-
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.
About as classic as you can get for blues on Chess – a key early album from Howlin Wolf, featuring an array of great original tunes, all set to very spare accompaniment. Most tracks have a searing electric guitar rasping around underneath the vocals and harmonica work – and titles ... LP, Vinyl record album
One of Bobby's greatest albums – a mix of electric blues and southern soul, forged in the heat of the Malaco studios in Jackson! The album's titled after Rush's incredible 8 minute track "Sue" – a tale of young love that has a hilarious monologue in the middle about this ... LP, Vinyl record album
Great small combo blues from Chicago – with Spann on piano and vocals – plus James Cotton on harmonica and additioanl vocals, and both James Madison and "Dirty Rivers" (aka Muddy Waters) on guitar! LP, Vinyl record album
Rollicking country-tinged blues from Jimmy Reed and an incredible group of backing musicians – actually not captured in the opulent grandeur of Carnegie Hall – and probably all the better for it! Prior to the original double LP release of Jimmy Reed At Carnegie Hall, Reed headlined a ... LP, Vinyl record album
A great mix of jazz and blues from Joe Turner – a set that seems to draw from his Kansas City roots, yet also inflect the sound with some of the blues changes of the 70s! Joe's got two key soloists here – Sonny Stitt on tenor and alto, and Pee Wee Crayton on guitar – and the ... LP, Vinyl record album
A really unusual collection – as most of the material was recorded in the late 20s, and the names of all the performers have been lost to the shifting sands of time! The recordings were done by Lawrence Gellert, and in more of a ethnographic style than some of the studio releases of the time. LP, Vinyl record album
The second great session from two of Verve's biggest jazz stars of the 60s – organist Jimmy Smith and guitarist Wes Montgomery – an unlikely pair, to be sure, but one who work great together on the set! The real change here is in Wes' playing – as it's shifted from the mellower ... LP, Vinyl record album
Easily our favorite album ever from trumpeter Don Goldie – a record that really steps past his other sides, thanks to an excellent group! Players on the album are soul jazz heavyweights all the way through – with Leo Wright on alto and flute, Patti Brown on piano, Ben Tucker on bass, ... LP, Vinyl record album
