VariousWhen Girls Do It ... LP
Red Lightnin (UK), 1950s/1960s/1971. Near Mint- 2LP ... $11.99
Raw, rollicking, rhythm & blues tunes from the 50s & 60s – loads of electric tunes that became the basis for rockers to come in both attitude and melodies – as you'd probably guess from the crazy cover photos for this great early 70s compilation on the UK's Red Lightnin label!

Howlin WolfHowlin Wolf/Moanin In The Moonlight – Two In One ... CD
Chess, 1950s/Early 60s. Used ... $4.99
2 blues classics from the great Howlin Wolf – back to back on a single CD! First up is the self-titled Howlin Wolf – a record that has Wolf tightening it up a bit from his earliest years at Chess, and moving into a groove that would forever make him one of the key artists to record for the label! The raspy, rootsy feel of earlier years is still in place – but the recording quality's a bit better, and the tunes have a more unified feel – thanks partly to some classic compositions from Willie Dixon, whose work makes up a very big part of the album! Tunes were recorded between the years 1959 to 1962, and brought together for the record – and titles include "Shake For Me", "Spoonful", "Going Down Slow", "Down In The Bottom", "Wang Dang Doodle", "Red Rooster", and "Tell Me". On Moanin In The Moonlight, a set filled with raspy vocals, Wolf sings in a way that definitely lives up to his nickname! The sound here is spare and stripped down, with very little accompaniment – usually just a bit of guitar, piano, bass, and drums – and sometimes not even all that much! Wolf's vocals are wonderful throughout – archetypal, but not nearly as cliched as some of his contemporaries came to sound – with a timeless feel that really holds up throughout. Titles include "Smokestack Lightnin", "No Place To Go", "All Night Boogie", "Evil", "I Asked For Water", "Forty Four", and "Somebody In My Home". CD

✨✧ BeckHyperspace (180 gram colored vinyl pressing) ... LP
Capitol, 2019. New Copy Gatefold ... $22.99 24.98
Beck in a largely easygoing, electronic psych pop mode on Hyperspace! A lot of it is produced by Pharrell, whose approach to sparely keyed, yet thick-sounding electronics over prominent beds of beats has long made him one of the more recognizable pop producers out there – and his longevity in his niche is nearly as impressive as Beck's – but Beck's own distinctive stylistic wanderings keep this from ever getting too predictable from track to track. The single "Saw Lightning" actually sounds more like Mellow Gold era Beck than most things he's recorded since, making that track a pretty wild standout here – and other tracks include "Hyperlife", "Uneven Days", "Die Waiting", "Chemical", "See Through", "Hyperspace", "Dark Places", "Star" and "Everlasting Nothing".

✨✧ Mike HarrisonMike Harrison/Smokestack Lightning/Rainbow Rider ... CD
Island/BGO (UK), Early 70s. New Copy 2CD ... Out Of Stock
Three overlooked albums by British singer Mike Harrison – all brought together in a single set! First up is the self-titled Mike Harrison – a wonderful solo debut from the singer who made Spooky Tooth sound so great on their albums, maybe even sounding better here on his own! The album is clearly conceived and put together by Mike – with backup help from The Junkyard Band, who underscore the yearning, earnest qualities in his vocals – spun out with a snakey, raspy charm, with a sound that's maybe a more intimate take on territory explored by Procol Harum. The songs are great, and the whole record has a quality level that really attests to the all-great quality of Island Records at this point – with tracks that include "Pain", "Lonely People", "Mother Nature", "Call It A Day", "Damian", and "Wait Until The Morning". Smokestack Lightning is great solo work from Mike Harrison, ex-Spooky Tooth – a fantastic singer who should have been huge as a solo act – maybe a bit like Colin Blunstone, whose sound with The Zombies was so important, but could never have a huge career on his own – even while he created some wonderful albums in the process! This set's a well-crafted gem through and through – recorded at Muscle Shoals, but with a sound that's free of any of the hoke of those oft-used studios – as instead of bending to southern modes, Harrison uses the ace musicians to underscore some of the depth of his own approach in a really great way. Titles include "Turning Over", "Wanna Be Free", "Tears", "What A Price", and "Paid My Dues". Rainbow Rider has Mike Harrison maybe hitting some harder rock territory than before, with some roots rock moments – more a part of the overall sound of the group, and with some pretty heavy guitars up there in the lead – which seems to bring out a very different quality in Mike's vocals. Titles include "Okay Lay Lady Lay", "Like A Road Leading Home", "Maverick Woman Blues", "You & Me", "I'll Keep It With Mine", and "Friend". CD

✨✧ MetallicaRide The Lightning (180 gram pressing) ... LP
Elektra/Blackened, 1984. New Copy (reissue)... Out Of Stock
One of greatest heavy metal albums of all time – a pioneering blast of mid 80s thrash from Metallica at an early peak! Say what you will about Metallica's later career triumphs and failures, there's no overstating how huge their impact was on metal and hard rock early on, and their best few records are incredible to this day. This may well be they're very best album – the culmination of a couple years of slow-building word-of-mouth reputation-building for genre work that can't be praised highly enough. One metal classic after another: "Fight Fire With Fire", "Ride The Lightning", "For Whom The Bell Tolls", "Fade To Black", "Trapped Under Ice", "Escape", "Creeping Death" and "The Call Of Ktulu".

HubaHuba ... CD
Jupiter (Finland), 2007. Used ... $4.99
The long-awaited full length album from Huba – a Finnish combo who first caught our ear a few years back, with an incredibly soulful approach that's rooted way back in the 70s! There's a quality here that reminds us a fair bit of Curtis Mayfield on the best numbers – a slightly raspy approach to the vocals that's far more soulful than you'd guess from the cover, or the origin of the music – served up with gently funky backings that have bits of wah wah guitar, great horns, and an overall sound that's as lean and personal as the vocals! Production is often subtly simple – somewhere in a space between Hi Records and Curtom – further focusing the energy of the record in the right direction – and tunes are all originals by lead singer Tuomas Kaila, with titles that include "Mary", "Man Brings The Bread", "Summer Morn", "The Midwife", "Let The Lightning Strike", "Like Sly Says", and "Natural High".

Bud Shank with Carmell JonesNew Groove ... LP
Pacific Jazz, 1961. Very Good+ ... $19.99
The New Groove referred to in the title is most likely soul jazz – as Bud's in extremely soulful company, working with a combo that includes Dennis Budimir on guitar, Carmell Jones on trumpet, Gary Peacock on bass, and Mel Lewis on drums. Tracks are a bit longer than usual for Shank, with less of the angular west coast touches, and more of an open-ended groove-based approach. Titles include "The Awakening", "New Groove", "White Lightnin", "Sultry Serenade", and "Liddledabllduya". LP, Vinyl record album
(Brown label Pacific Jazz stereo pressing, with deep groove. Cover has age spots along the opening and some splitting on the top seam.)

VariousAnn Arbor Blues Festival 1969 ... CD
Third Man, 1969. New Copy 2 CDs ... $18.99 19.98
A fantastic document of the first-ever Ann Arbor Blues Festival – the start of a great event that would blossom into other styles of music in the 70s, but which stood as a strong blues-based event in its initial year of 1969! In some ways, the three day series of concerts is a roots answer to Woodstock – which took place just a few weeks before – as the festival featured a great scope of blues talents, from the rootsier sort of artists who were recording for labels like Folkways or Arhoolie, to some of the sharper modern talents rising to the top on Chess or Delmark! The package alone is almost worth the price of admission – beautiful photographs of the event, detailed notes, and the first-ever release of this music – which has sat in the vaults for decades, finally to see the light of day. Titles include "Dirty Mother For You" by Roosevelt Sykes, "So Glad You're Mine" by Arthur Big Boy Crudup, "Everybody Must Suffer/Stone Crazy" by Luther Allison & The Blue Nebulae, "Help Me" by Junior Wells, "I Wonder Why" by Jimmy Dawkins, "Too Much Alcohol" by JB Hutto & His Hawks, "So Many Roads So Many Trains" by Otis Rush, "Long Distance Call" by Muddy Waters, "Off The Wall" by James Cotton Band, "Juanita" by Big Joe Williams, "Jelly Jelly Blues" by Shirley Griffin, "I Feel So Good" by Magic Sam, "Call It Stormy Monday" by T-Bone Walker, "Death Letter Blues" by Son House, "Key To The Highway" by Sam Lay, and "Mojo Hand" by Lightnin Hopkins.

✨✧ Makaya McCravenHighly Rare ... LP
International Anthem, 2017. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
Raw sounds from the Chicago scene – a mighty nice performance from the group of drummer Makaya McCraven – captured on four track cassette at the tiny Danny's Tavern! The setting and recording style really works with the approach of the group – as Makaya's drums are nice and loud – beat-y and splashy – maybe more funky than on any othe records under his name, and fitted with fantastically bold work from Junius Paul on bass, Ben Lamar Gay on cornet, and the great Nick Mazzarella on alto sax! There's also some turntables from Lefto – but used musically, and not in the kind of heavy-handed way that used to ruin a jazz session a decade or so back – and the group perform titles that include "The Locator", "Above & Beyond", "Venus Rising", "Icy Lightning", "Left Fields", "RFJ III", and "Early Bird Once Again".

Score/Third Man, Early 50s. New Copy (reissue)... $16.99 21.99
A late 50s collection of earlier 78rpm singles issued by Aladdin Records – material that's far rawer than the "strums" in the title might imply! At a time when other blues musicians were fleshing things out a bit – sometimes adding in larger backings, horns, and a bit of electricity – Lightnin Hopkins hardly needed that at all, as the man's voice and guitar are more than enough to knock things out of the park! Titles include "So Long", "Mistreated", "Shotgun", "Rollin & Rollin", "My California", "Honey Babe", "Short Haired Woman", and "Katie May". LP, Vinyl record album

George JonesGeorge Jones Sings White Lightning & 29 Other Favorites (with bonus tracks) ... CD
Southern Routes, Late 50s/Early 60s. Used ... $3.99
Tremendous early work from George Jones – the full White Lightning album for Mercury Records, stacked here with a huge amount of bonus tracks too! George is wonderful throughout – already a standout in the shifting country scene of the 50s – with one ear that understands the sharper edges of the rock generation, but another that brings out all the sentiment in the tunes he touches – material that's delivered with this magical approach that few other singers could touch. If you only know George as a blue-tinged singer of ballads from his later years, you'll really be stunned here – as lots of the tracks have a sound that's quite different, and a lot more vibrant. Titles include "White Lighning", "Give Away Girl", "Wandering Soul", "Life To Go", "Flame In My Heart", "What Am I Worth", "I Take The Chance", "Settle Down", "I'm A One Woman Man", "Revenooer Man", "Sparkling Brown Eyes", and "Color Of The Blues".

Lightnin' RodHustlers Convention ... LP
Celluloid, 1974. New Copy (reissue)... $11.99
Fantastic stuff – incredibly hard and incredibly funky, and a masterpiece all the way through! Long before there was any talk of gangster rap, Jalal of the Last Poets recorded this album of gamblin', pimpin', and hard double dealin'. It's a fantastic album-long ride through the dark side of the black underworld, and is the aural equivalent of a blacksploitation flick. Kool & The Gang provided the music – and Jalal tells the whole story throughout, in the same hard rappin' style he used with the Last Poets! The record's an undisputed classic, and includes the sample classic "Sport", plus loads of other righteous funky cuts like "Spoon", "Grit's Den", and "Sentenced To The Chair"! LP, Vinyl record album

GermsLive At The Starwood Dec 3, 1980 ... LP
Slash/Run Out Groove, 1980. New Copy 2LP Gatefold (reissue)... $26.99 29.99
The last live stand of The Germs – capturing the band's raw, caterwauling ferocity, underappreciated musicianship behindDarby Crash's feral howls and sly humor – just 4 days before Darby's death. Given the band's well earned reputation for utter chaos, the most stunning thing about this particular recording is how lightning fast brilliant the band is. Don't mistake that statement for polished professionalism. This is The Germs after all, they sound like they might fall apart at any moment – especially given Darby's antics – but Lorna Doom's and Don Bolles's pummeling rhythms and Pat Smear's ferocious guitars are a lot tighter than they were a couple years earlier, though not at the expense of caustic energy. Darby's between songs banter pleading for a beer or lightly berating the crowd are almost lighthearted at times, so you might not guess he was headed for a final self-inflected crash just a few days later. 22 tracks on 2LPs: "Circle One", "Manimal", "Caught In My Eye", "No God", "Strange Notes", "What We Do Is Secret", "Media Blitz", "Communist Eyes", "Let's Pretend", "Lexicon Devil", "Shut Down (Annililation Man)", "Public Image", "We Must Bleed", "Richie Dagger's Crime" and more.

✨✧ Howlin WolfHowlin Wolf Album ... LP
Cadet/Get On Down, 1968. New Copy (reissue)... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A killer album of funky blues – recorded by Howlin Wolf during the period when Chess/Cadet was backing its older artists up with some of the newer funk musicians it had working in its studios! The overall sound works quite well – and although purists at the time moaned at the way artists like Wolf, Etta James, and Bo Diddley were being handled (especially with a "we know better than them" message on the cover like this!), the funky blues records from this time actually seem to be some of the most enduring from Chess – especially with younger listeners in the 21st Century! A big part of the success here goes to producers Charles Stepney and Gene Barge – who helped bring together a younger batch of players for Wolf's backing – including Pete Cosey and Phil Upchurch on guitars, Louis Satterfield on bass, and Morris Jennings on drums. Titles include "Spoonful", "Tail Dragger", "Smokestack Lightning", "Red Rooster", "Evil", and "Down In The Bottom". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ WhoMagic Bus/My Generation ... LP
Decca/MCA, 1965/1968. Very Good+ 2LP Gatefold ... Out Of Stock
A Who double-header! On Magic Bus, The Who may look like they're tripping things out a bit – clearly a nod to the Magical Mystery Tour-era Beatles – but the groove here is tight, right, and pretty darn mod all the way through – very much in the spirit of the group's earlier albums on Decca! The tracks are all short, and still feature strong influences from soul and R&B – but they also show a great talent for sneaking in spookier bits or more complicated parts too – odd musical elements that might have their roots in older R&B, but which here are turned towards a more mature expression of the group's earlier idiom – really pointing the way towards some of their more ambitious projects in coming years! Titles include "Magic Bus", "Doctor Doctor", "Someone's Coming", "Our Love Was Is", "Call Me Lightning", "Pictures Of Lily", "Bucket T", "Run Run Run", and "Disguises". My Generation is the first full-length set from The Who – a blistering batch of rough-edged tunes that run the gamut from bluesy soul to sweeter pop to guitar-driven grinders that show an incredible amount of power – even at this early point! The album's somewhat all over the map, but in a good way – in that it already displays the rich talent the group had for many styles of music – that hard-to-peg quality that made The Who so undeniably Who-like over the years. Titles include the classics "The Kids Are Alright" and "My Generation" – plus "Instant Party", "A Legal Matter", "Out In The Street", "The Good's Gone", "La La La Lies", and "It's Not True". LP, Vinyl record album
(Beige label pressing with mostly split seams and a gold promo stamp.)
