Don BryantDon't Give Up On Love ... LP
Fat Possum, 2017. New Copy ... $11.99 19.99
The first album in decades from Memphis soul legend Don Bryant – a singer who hardly even gave us any recordings back when he was in his prime! Don was one of the lesser lights at the famous Hi Records – not as successful as Ann Peebles or Al Green, but steeped in the same wonderful sound as those great artists – and still going wonderfully strong after all these years! In fact, the album almost feels more like some lost Hi tapes from Bryant's glory days than a contemporary set – as his voice is wonderful, the songs are tight, and both the production and instrumentation have just the right sort of classic approach – soulful, but without overstating things in any sort of cloying "resurrection" mode. Instead, Don's just right on top, and right in the pocket – doing his thing wonderfully on titles that include "Don't Give Up On Love", "I Got To Know", "First You Cry", "It Was Jealousy", "Something About You", "Can't Hide The Hurt", "One Ain't Enough", and "A Nickel & A Nail".

RL BurnsideBothered Mind ... LP
Fat Possum, 2004. New Copy ... $19.99 21.99
Gritty revival blues from RL Burnside – and a record that really broke his music into a wider audience! Of course, it helps that the set features guest appearances from Kid Rock and Lyrics Born – the latter we enjoy more than the former – but the overall vibe is still very much in the best spirit of Burnside's other music – on titles that include "Detroit Boogie (parts 1 & 2)", "Someday Baby", "Goin Down South", "Go To Jail", "Bird Without A Feather", "Glory Be", "Goin Away Baby", "Rollin & Tumblin", and "Stole My Check".

Honeyboy EdwardsWorried Blues (180 gram pressing – with download) ... LP
Fat Possum, 1969/1971. New Copy ... $19.99 21.99
Rare work from the legendary Honeyboy Edwards – a blues guitarist who was a key force in helping the music make the transition to an electric mode in the 40s – but an artist whose talents were eclipsed by so many others he worked with at the time! This set's got a real back-to-basics vibe – Edwards captured in a spare setting, in a series of revival recordings done by Adelphi – with a focus on his vocals and guitar that take us right back to his early years working street corners and juke joints. Titles include "Bull Cow Blues 2", "Little Boy Blue", "Love Honeyboy Slow", "Don't Mistreat A Fool", "Howlin Wind", "Meet The Mornin Train", and "Hot Springs Blues". LP, Vinyl record album

Blaze FoleyDawg Years ... LP
Fat Possum, Late 70s. New Copy ... $19.99 22.99
A straight-up incredible batch of recordings by the Austin singer-songwriter ghost of a legend that is Blaze Foley – a self-destructive character better known to the stars he influenced than he is to the masses (he is the "Drunken Angel" who Lucinda Williams wrote and sang about) – material from the mid-to-late 70s when he was billed as Deputy Dawg and put together here for one of the best compilations on Fat Possum in years! What makes this set so wonderful is the cohesive flow of it. It's solo folk country material recorded in a trio of intimate sessions from February of '76, November of that same year, and September of '78. Plaintive in presentation, with a passion that both soars to the heavens and plunges the depths. Bruised and totally beautiful! Titles include "You'll Get Yours Aplenty", "I Should Have Been Home", "Let Me Ride In Your Big Cadillac", "Big Chief Hightower", "Blaze Foley's 113th Wet Dream", "Rudee Down In New Orleans", "New Wave Blues", "Fat Boy", "Cosmic Doo Doo", "Cold, Cold World", "Crawl Back To You" and more. 20 in all.

Al GreenAl Green Is Love ... CD
Hi Records/Fat Possum, 1975. New Copy ... $11.99 15.99
Heavenly soul doesn't get any more heavenly than this! Al Green's at the height of his powers here – working in that wonderfully smooth, wonderfully warm style that made his early 70s material so wonderful! This album's maybe slightly less iconic than some of Green's other titles for Hi Records – but only because it's less chock-full of hits, even though the quality and sound is every bit as high as the rest of them! Willie Mitchell did an impeccable job on production – and titles include the classic track "Love Ritual" is a great little groover with a funkier sound than usual for Al, which is fine by us – and other tracks include "LOVE", "The Love Sermon", and "There Is Love" Hey, they weren't kidding with that title!

Hi Records/Fat Possum, 1972. Used ... $7.99
Al Green, 1973 – what could be better? The king of Memphis soul is at the height of his powers here – working in a setting that yielded less chart hits than some of his other albums for Hi Records, but which is still as sublime as the rest – thanks to an undeniable studio magic guided by Willie Mitchell! The sound is full, but never slick or smooth – and Al's vocals are tremendous throughout (but honestly, did you expect anything less?) Titles include "Call Me (Come Back Home)", "Here I Am (Come & Take Me)", "Funny How Time Slips Away", and the beautiful "Have You Been Making Out OK?" CD

Hi Records/Fat Possum, 1974. New Copy ... $8.99 15.99
Al Green explores your mind – then moves onto your heart, your soul, and everything in between! The album's a classic in the best Hi Records tradition – and features Al moving into a style that's even more spiritual than before – serving up the sublime tracks "Take Me To The River" and "God Blessed Our Love", both of which seem to point strongly at the direction he would take in later years – but also managing to mix the secular with the spiritual, in a way that's as sexy as ever! Other tracks include the hit "Sha-La-La (Make Me Happy)", plus "One Nite Stand", "The City", "I'm Hooked On You", and "Stay With Me Forever". CD

Al GreenLove Ritual – Rare & Previously Unreleased 1968 to 1976 ... CD
Hi Records/Fat Possum, Late 60s/1970s. New Copy ... $11.99 13.99
A selection of earlier Al Green numbers issued originally at the end of the 70s – with new mixing by Willie Mitchell, who'd produced all the original sides. Titles include "Love Ritual", which is a nice groover with some congas in the mix giving the whole thing an earthier thump under the trademark 70s Hi Records sound – and ultimately, upon revisiting this compilation, Mitchell does a pretty great job of filtering Al's wandering muse at this point through the trademark sounds of Memphis and Hi Records! plus "Glory Glory", "Let It Shine", "Keep Me Cryin", "Oh Me Oh My", "I Tried To Tell Myself", and "Smile A Little Bit More".

Ann PeeblesPart Time Love ... LP
Hi Records/Fat Possum, 1971. New Copy (reissue)... $19.99 21.99
A great litle early album from Ann Peebles – rawer than most of her more familiar stuff, with a gutbuckety soul quality that really keeps things fresh! We always love Ann's work, but in these early years she has a deep soul vibe that few other singers can touch – a level that easily rivals Aretha Franklin, but has more real southern roots – and which is handled here by the Hi Records sound. Willie Mitchell produced and arranged (of course!), and the record's got some sweet backing vocals by Rhodes, Chalmers, & Rhodes – very much in a Sweet Inspirations mode, but again maybe a bit deeper too. Tracks include a funky remake of The Isleys' "It's Your Thing", plus "Solid Foundation", "Crazy About You Baby", "Give Me Some Credit", and "Generation Gap Between Us". LP, Vinyl record album

Not really famous, but gritty & grooving bluesy gospel soul from Famous L Renfroe – and artist who might even be more mysterious to us after hearing the record! The Flying Sweet Angel Of Joy is kind of a dreamlike mix of impassioned vocals, electric guitar and bass, with some drums. There's often chorus backing vocals behind the spirited, but easygoing lead vocals, and the sound often has a gritty soul blues vibe underneath the emotive, spiritual lead vocals. Titles include "Children", "Believe", "Feed", "Reaching", It's So", "Why Not I", "And Man", "His Love", "Circle", "War" and "Tell". CD

XLos Angeles ... LP
Slash/Fat Possum, 1980. New Copy (reissue)... $19.99 21.99
One of the greatest records to ever come out of the west coast punk scene at the end of the 70s and start of the 80s – incredibly well-penned and well-played – at a level that instantly leaves behind so many of its contemporaries! The themes of the tunes are fantastic – sung by Exene Cervenka and John Doe – as little tales of lust, greed, compromise, and decay – all set to the fantastic drums of DJ Bonebrake and the searing guitar of the great Billy Zoom! The quartet are amazing together – never missing a beat as they rip through classics that include "Your Phone's Off The Hook But You're Not", "Johnny Hit & Run Pauline", "Soul Kitchen", "Nausea", "Los Angeles", and "Sex & Dying In High Society".

VariousSacred Soul of North Carolina ... LP
Bible & Tire/Fat Possum, 2021. New Copy 2LPGatefold ... $12.99 23.99
A fantastic little session of gospel music – contemporary work, but done in the same sort of "field trip" style of recording that takes us back to Alan Lomax and some of the great southern projects of the postwar years! In this case, the music all comes from a studio in Fountain, North Carolina – opened up for a few days in a marathon session of recording, all as a way to capture the wealth of overlooked talent on the local scene in that part of the state – a top-shelf array of gospel groups and singers who really fit the classic mode of the Bible & Tire label! The package is wonderful – a great dip into a musical world we never would have heard otherwise – all presented in a really no-nonsense way. Titles include "Tell It" and "Use Me Lord" by Big James Barrett & The Golden Jubilees, "He's Coming Again" and "Trying To Make It" by The Johnsonaires, "Stand Up" and "Shake Me" by Bishop Albert Harrison & The Gospel Tones, "I Want To Be Ready" and "Have You Tried Jesus" by Little Willie & The Fantastic Spiritualaires, "No Ways Tired" by Marvin Earl Blind Butch Cox, "Amazing Grace" by Melody Harper, "It's A Shame" by Dedicated Men Of Zion, "Glory Glory" by Johnny Ray Daniels, "Victory" by Faith & Harmony, and "Tell It All To Jesus" by The Glorifying Vines Sisters.

Fat Possum/Big Legal Mess, 1989. New Copy ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Jessie Mae Hemphill might look like an 80s blues artist on the cover, but the record's got a much more vintage vibe – as the set features field recordings done on New Years Eve in 1989, with Jessie Mae singing in a style that seems geared to ring in the year with the ghosts of the past! The music has this really dark, moody vibe – guitar progressions that are cyclical and downturning – almost the sort of energy that Nick Cave was trying to put in his music at the time, but could never do this well – especially when topped with the raw, raspy vocals of Hemphill. Titles include "Holy Ghost", "DC9", "Run Get My Shotgun", "Married Man Blues", "Train Train", and "Nothing That You Say". LP, Vinyl record album

Amazing stuff from the Converted Mind of Bishop Manning and his family! Manning was a former down & dirty blues singer who was changed forever byThe Good Word in the early 60s – and the lived in realness of these recordings certainly suggests a blues pedigree. It's completely wonderful, with Manning and Family singers backed perfectly with organ, guitar and drums. 28 tracks in all: "Manning Family Theme Song", "Back In St Matthews Days", "I Am A Pilgrim", "Don't Let Satan Ride", "The Jealous Man And The Jealous Woman", "The Last Step", "Back In Slavery Days", "I Want To Shout At The Meeting", "Going Off Theme", "Sit Down Servent" and many more.

Hi Records/Fat Possum, 1974. New Copy ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Easily our favorite album ever by Ann Peebles – not just for the beathead title track, but also because it seems to be the one record where she brings a bit something extra to the studio! The sound is certainly in the classic Hi Records mode here – thanks to production by Willie Mitchell – but there's also a deeper groove overall, a stronger burning bottom, and an all-soul sound to most tracks that goes way beyond simple cliches of southern soul. Ann's vocals are tremendous throughout – sometimes sweet, sometimes mean – and titles include the sublime "I Can't Stand The Rain", plus "Run Run Run", "One Way Street", "You Keep Me Hangin On", and "If We Can't Trust Each Other".

✨✧ Ann PeeblesStraight From The Heart (with download) ... LP
Hi Records/Fat Possum, 1971. New Copy (reissue)... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Ann Peebles sings straight from the heart on this classic early set for Hi Records – a record that's to female vocals what Al Green's work of the time meant to male soul! As with Green's Hi Records of the time, Willie Mitchell is firmly in charge of production and backings – working with that warmly glowing Memphis soul style that carved whole new territory in soul music for the 70s – a maturing and mellowing of earlier southern modes, in a way that helps Peebles hit some fresh and uncliched sounds with her vocals. At a time when so many other singers were trying to copy Aretha, Ann's approach is mighty fresh – as you'll hear on tracks that include "I Take What I Want", "Slipped Tripped & Fell In Love", "What You Laid On Me", "Trouble Heartaches & Sadness", "99 Pounds", "I've Been There Before", and "Somebody's On Your Case".

Fat Possum, 1966. New Copy ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A heck of a discovery – early recordings Townes Van Zandt cut in mid 60s Nashville – a couple of years before his official solo debut, and a soul shakingly beautiful mix of his country folk blues storytelling and some more rollicking numbers that work exceptionally well! One of the things that's most striking about it is how wise and knowing his songs and his voice are this early in his game, with the more intimate voice and guitar numbers sounding great. The few songs with busier instumentation work, too, and that's even more surprising give the Townes loner folk ouvre. We didn't think there could be much Townes left unreleased, especially of this quality! Titles include "Black Widow Blues", "Maryetta's Song", "Hunger Child Blues", "Black Jack Mama", "When Your Dream Never Dies", "Big Country Blues", "Gypsy Friday", "Colorado Blues", "Black Crow Blues" and more.

Hi Records/Fat Possum, 1972. New Copy (reissue)... Out Of Stock
A damn great bit of work from the legendary Al Green – maybe one of his best records ever – and in fact, maybe one of greatest soul albums of all time! The set's got a style that's really genre-defining – not the previous southern soul of a few years before, but also not the modes that were happening up north either. Instead, Al lays things out with this stunningly mature style – sexy, but never overdone – confident, but never in a swaggering way – with a really special flow that comes from the great Willie Mitchell's talents in the studio, but an edge that's Green at his secular best. The album's got a lasting appeal that's made it a favorite for generations – both a key introduction to soul, but also a treasured favorite for longtime collectors – and never every track's a gem – from the classic "Let's Stay Together", through a set list that includes "I've Never Found A Girl", "La La For You", "How Can You Mend A Broken Heart", "So You're Leaving", and "What Is This Feeling".

Raw, intimate Junior Kimbrough recordings, mostly from the early 90s, a number of which were recorded at home – and for the all hiss and murk of the recording quality, the intimacy and realness of the voice, guitar and the man's presence alone make up for it! Spare, lonely blues from Junior that's as quite raw, but endearingly so, and there's some incredible stuff here. The opening title tune has Junior sounding pretty vulnerable and tender hearting, which is pretty amazing – and other numbers include "Done Got Old", "Baby Please Don't Leave Me", "Lonesome Road", "Junior's Place" and a great trio of recordings from the 1993 Sunflower Blues Festival in Clarksdale, MS: "I Feel Alright", "All Night Long" and "Nobody But You".

Sure, there's plenty of fuzz and weird spacey sounds – of the type that he's been delivering for many years – but at points, the lyrics are more upfront than ever before, and served up with a heartfelt quality that we never would have expected many years back – when he was hiding behind so much hair and echo! The balance here is great – plenty to appeal to longtime fans of his legacy, but also something special added to the mix too – on titles that include "I'm Coming Home Again", "The Mainline Song", "Crazy", "Let It Bleed", "Always Together With You", and "Best Thing You Never Had".

The legendary Peter Green is in amazing form on guitar – maybe not as experimental as on records to come, but already able to challenge his inspirations with razor-sharp dexterity and a real sense of feeling. The rest of the group features Mick Fleetwood on drums, John McVie on bass, and Jeremy Spencer on slide guitar and piano – and titles include the originals "Stop Messin Around", "Rollin Man", "Love That Burns", "Evenin Boogie", "Trying So Hard To Forget", and "Coming Home".

There's a grace and a glow to the set right from the very first note – that really unique presentation and performance that makes these early 70s Green albums such enduring treasures – and so unlike anything else that's ever come since, no matter how many folks were influenced by Al's sound! The production is perfect – with Al helping Willie Mitchell at the helm, as they balance together the richness of the instrumentation with core elements in the rhythms – on titles that include Al's stone classic "Love & Happiness", plus "I'm Still In Love With You", "I'm Glad You're Mine", "What A Wonderful Thing Love Is", "Look What You Done For Me", and his great remake of Kris Kristofferson's "For The Good Times" – a country/soul classic if there ever was one!

One of the most legendary bluesmen of the early 78rpm generation – heard here in a wonderfully-recorded set from 1964! The session came at a time when Skip James was hardly getting any mainstream attention, but had been rediscovered by a younger generation – which led to the fledgling Adelphi Records bringing him into the studio and really letting him do his thing! There's no attempt at commercialism here at all – as the tracks are spare, of varying length, and have James letting that amazing vocal style loose – soaring out with a heavenly sound at some moments, and hewing to the rhythms of his guitar at others – given reverent production treatment by the young John Fahey. Titles include "Broke & Hungry", "Crow Jane", "Cypress Grove Blues", "Black Gal", "Drunken Spree", "Illinois Blues", "Look Down The Road", and "Bad Whiskey". LP, Vinyl record album

Hi Records/Fat Possum, 1971. New Copy (reissue)... Out Of Stock
Al Green's first major album, and a killer batch of Memphis soul tracks with a sound that's a bit rawer than later years. The formula for the hits is firmly in place – and Al's beautiful voice is swept up wonderfully in very sympathetic production by the great Willie Mitchell. Although Mitchell had worked fine on his own before the record, it's his work with Green that really pushes him to the top of the soul hall of fame – as it's hard to imagine how anyone could have come up with a better showcase for Al's amazing voice. Proof of this can be heard on the record's great original tunes by Green – like "All Because", "I'm A Ram", "You Say It", and the classic "Tired Of Being Alone" – as well as on covers like "Driving Wheel", "Can't Get Next To You", and "Light My Fire".

Al takes over the whole deal with this one – as the record features him writing, producing, arranging, and even playing lead guitar – stepping out from under the protective wing of Willie Mitchell, and doing a surprisingly great job overall! Al does get a bit of help in the studio – from Fred Jordan and Reuben Fairfax, whose names are hidden in smaller type, under the message on the back that says that the record is "something new" – but as we've come to learn from all the other Al Green records we've loved over the years, the man himself is more than enough to make the record wonderful – with vocals that are unbeatable at this point in his career! Titles include "All N All", "Belle", "Loving You", "Georgia Boy", "Feels Like Summer" and "Dream". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Al GreenGive Me More Love ... CD
Hi Records/Fat Possum, Early 70s/2021. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
A very cool idea for a collection – a set that takes all the classic early Al Green material for Hi Records, and adds in some larger orchestrations – all at a level that's way better than you might expect, and with a sound that's very faithful to the originals! The larger charts are dropped in with a nicely subtle touch – so that Al's vocals aren't impinged at all, and the strings are used to sweeten up the tunes in all the right ways – very much as if the original recordings might have been given a bit of an Arif Mardin touch over at Atlantic Records, while still retaining the Memphis sound at the core. Titles include "Look What You Done For Me", "Take Me To The River", "Tired Of Being Alone", "Call Me", "Let's Stay Together", "I'm Still In Love With You", "Here I Am", "How Can You Mend A Broken Heart", "Sha La La", "I Can't Get Next To You", and "Let's Get Married".

✨✧ Syl JohnsonDiamond In The Rough ... CD
Hi Records/Fat Possum, 1974. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
The great Syl Johnson – doing his thing for Hi Records on a record that's more shiny diamond than it is rough – his second album for the label and a truly underappreciated gem from the Chi soul great! Diamond In The Rough is a much sweeter set of tunes than Syl's Chicago work on Twinight, with warmer production by southern soul guru Willie Mitchell to keep his sound much more in the Memphis soul camp – but still a nice album of bluesy stoked sweetness, and proof that Syl was one of the better talents on the Hi label. Titles include "Keeping Down Confusion", "Let Yourself Go", "Could I Be Falling In Love", "Stuck In Chicago", and "I Hear The Love Chimes", "Please, Don't Give Up On Me" and "Diamond In The Rough".

✨✧ Ann PeeblesIf This Is Heaven ... CD
Hi Records/Fat Possum, 1977. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
Classic Hi material from Ann Peebles! If This Is Heaven is a few years later than the much loved early 70s material, but she's still working in a killer groove – and with sweet. warm arrangements from Willie Mitchell. Ann's voice is teeming with emotion and strength, and track here highlight that vibe, but she and producer/arranger Mitchell bring in a few more dancefloor ready soul numbers, too. Titles include "You Gonna Make Me Cry", "When I'm In Your Arms", "If This Is Heaven", "I'm So Thankful","Games" and "Boy I Gotta Have You". CD

✨✧ SpiritualizedLet It Come Down (180 gram ivory vinyl pressing) ... LP
Spaceman/Fat Possum, 2001. New Copy 2LP Gatefold (reissue)... Out Of Stock
Instant classic work from J Spaceman – a set that not only includes all the freak and fuzz of the past, but which also opens up with this earnest, honest approach to songwriting that nobody would have expected a few records before! There's some great use of larger orchestrations here – elements that work surprisingly well next to all the fuzzy guitar lines – and in a way, those larger charts are a way of updating the Spiritualized sound past some of the beats of the previous decade, and also helping some of the more personal tunes really find a way to deliver their message. Titles include "On Fire", "Do It All Over Again", "Stop Your Crying", "Anything More", "The Straight & The Narrow", "Won't Get To Heaven", and "Lord Can You Hear Me". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Elder Jack WardAlready Made ... LP
Bible & Tire, 2021. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
The first recording in over 50 years from Elder Jack Ward – a Memphis gospel legend whose roots go way back to the early years of the city's soul scene! Ward was a member of both the Christian Harmonizers and Sunset Travelers, then went on to a huge legacy of his own – including work on the D-Vine label, with his own group, the Gospel Four. Yet for some reason, he never made it back in the studio over the past five decades – a fact that's nicely corrected here by the strong efforts of the Bible & Tire offshoot of Fat Possum Records – served up in a mode that's slightly more contemporary, but still faithful to Jack's roots – with backing from the Sacred Soul Sound Section. Titles include the catchy "The Way Is Already Made", plus "Lord I'm In Your Care", "Shout Trouble Is Over", "He's Got Great Things", "I Feel Better Since I Prayed", and "Someone Who Is Greater Than I". LP, Vinyl record album
