✨✧ Memphis Slim & Willie DixonBaby Please Come Home! – Memphis Slim & Willie Dixon In Paris ... CD
Battle, 1962. Used ... $7.99
Rootsy blues from the team of Memphis Slim and Willie Dixon – recorded in Paris in the early 60s at the Trois Mailletz nightclub! The style here is much earthier than you'd guess from the date – the return to tradition mode that some players often experienced while working in the ... read more CD

Mississippi, Late 70s/Early 80s. New Copy 2LP Gatefold ... $24.99 26.99
The mighty Alan Lomax has maybe done more to document rural American music in the 20th century than anyone else – most famously for a midcentury series of recordings for the Library Of Congress and Folkways Records, which established Lomax as having an incredible ear for lesser-heard sounds ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Abner JayMan Walked On The Moon ... LP
Mississippi, Late 60s/Early 70s/Early 90s. New Copy ... $15.99 24.99
A great mix of vintage and later work from Abner Jay – a unique one man band in the best rural blues tradition of the south – and who, like some of the best, doesn't ever use his multi-instrument talent as a gimmick! Instead, Jay works here in a mode that's like a stripped-down combo, ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
✨✧ Lonnie Johnson & Elmer SnowdenBlues & Ballads ... CD
Prestige, 1960. Used ... $6.99
Rootsy blues from the brief stretch when Prestige Records was experimenting with non-jazz material – a back-to-basics session that features Johnson on electric guitar and vocals, Snowden on acoustic guitar, and only Wendell Marshall's jazz-trained bass to back the pair up. The work's in a ... read more CD

✨✧ Jimmy WitherspoonEvenin' Blues ... CD
Prestige/Original Blues Classics, 1964. Used ... $7.99
A great batch of raw R&B vocals from Jimmy Witherspoon – along with backing by an excellent group that includes the great Clifford Scott on tenor, the always-great T-Bone Walker on guitar, and the little-known Bert Kendrix on organ.

A split album of early recordings by Otis Rush and Albert King – both featured here in early Chicago sides done for Chess Records in the years before their bigger late 60s fame!

✨✧ JB LenoirNatural Man ... CD
Chess/MCA, Mid 50s. Used ... $6.99
A really great collection of Chess Records work by JB Lenoir – one of the more unusual singers on the Chicago scene at the time – and one with a sound that's pretty darn great all the way through! Lenoir's tone is a pitch or two up from most of his contemporaries – not as gritty ... read more CD

✨✧ Lowell FulsonHung Down Head ... CD
Chess, 1950s. Used ... $5.99
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 ... read more CD

Chess, 1950s. Used ... $5.99
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 ... read more CD

Damn great music from the LA scene of the postwar years – jump blues, R&B, jiving jazz, and more – all the right kind of platters that spun big during the era of the late 78s!

Blind Pig, 1974. Used ... Just Sold Out!
A smoking live performance from these two Chicago blues legends – recorded at the Montreux Jazz Festival in Switzerland, but with a gritty electric vibe that's very much like the duo's best work back home!
