Mitchbal/Cititrax, 1984. Very Good+ ... $24.99
Spare early house work from Jesse Saunders – a set that's heavy on European electronic touches, in a very groovy way!

ABC, 1971. Very Good+ ... $19.99
BB King live at the Cook County Jail in Chicago – and given the amount of great live shows going on in the institution during the early 70s, the jail must have been one hell of a place to be incarcerated!

Mercury, 1978. Very Good+ Gatefold ... $4.99
A bit of a different sound than usual for Bohannon – but a great one as well!

Well, Preston would hardly ever be called the "wildest" organ player – at least not in our town – but the record's one of his best, and it's got a pretty tight instrumental groove that's similar to some of Jimmy McGriff's work for the Sue and Veep labels.
