Memphis Slim With Guests (aka Born With The Blues)

LP (Item 931284) Jewel, Late 60s — Condition: Very Good+

An unusual US issue of material that Memphis Slim recorded in Paris – with work by Carey Bell on harmonica, Lowell Fulsom on guitar, and SP Leary on drums! Titles include "Grinder Man Blues", "Misery", "I Wanna Dance", "Chicago Bounce No 2", "Born With The Blues", "My Baby Left Me", and "Rocking The House".  © 1996-2019, Dusty Groove, Inc.
(Cover has surface wear and a half split top seam.)

Very Good + (plus)

  • Vinyl should be very clean, but can have less luster than near mint.
  • Should still shine under a light, but one or two marks may show up when tilted.
  • Can have a few small marks that may show up easily, but which do not affect play at all. Most marks of this quality will disappear when the record is tilted, and will not be felt with the back of a fingernail.
  • This is the kind of record that will play "near mint", but which will have some signs of use (although not major ones).
  • May have slight 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.

Lowell Fulsom

Man On The Run
Jewel/P-Vine (Japan), Late 60s. Near Mint-
Great Jewel Records material – and Lowell Fullsom's working in territory that's got a lot of rootsy, almost southern blues in the mix – but which still cracks out at times with his hipper, more funk-tuned groove! There's a few tracks on here that hearken towards the "Tramp" ... LP, Vinyl record album

Albert King

I Wanna Get Funky
Stax, 1973. Very Good+
Albert King hardly has to make the statement in the title – as the record's plenty funky throughout, and has that great mix of blues with hipper 70s styles that you'd find in his best material for Stax Records! King's at the core, both on vocals and guitar – but the set also features ... LP, Vinyl record album

Checker, Early 60s. Near Mint-
Man, with a square guitar and a badass style of presentation, it's hard to imagine how Bo could manage to NOT be in the spotlight! The album, like all his early Chess sides, is a real cut above the usual R&B set – with all original tracks, a really self-contained approach, and a no-nonsen ... LP, Vinyl record album
Atco, 1972. Near Mint-
70s blues from Louisiana Red, but cut with a rough-edged style that reminds us a fair bit of mid 50s Chess Records work from Chicago! The style's a nice back-to-basics one that helps Red avoid the growing cliches dragging down blues at the time – and the production keeps things lean, mean, ... LP, Vinyl record album


Risky Blues
King, Early 50s. Very Good+
Not really "risky", but "risque" – someone must have spelled the title wrong! Raw, raunchy sounds – all pulled together from a time before soul and rock even existed! Most of the work here is from the classic catalog of King Records – a killer imprint in the ... LP, Vinyl record album
