Brand: Hunter, Alberta
Born in 1895, and having been an early blues innovator in the 1920s, Alberta Hunter became a living link to the jazz-age and stars like Bessie Smith, Paul Robeson and Ma Rainey. In the late `50s she started a second career as a nurse, and mostly retired from music, but by the mid-70s was lured back to live performance. In 1981, at age 85, she recorded this live set at a New York cabaret called The Cookery. Hunter was still sharp-as-a-tack; her sassy stage patter, interactions with the band and audience, and vocalizing are filled with percussive energy, knowing phrasings and deep experience and wisdom. Singing with accompaniment from Gerald Cook (piano, arrangements) and Jimmy Lewis (bass), Hunter covers standards that she wrote (and as she noted, was still collecting royalties on) as well as a selection of standards from other authors of the great American songbook

Brand: Muddy Waters
Muddy returned to his acoustic roots on this 1964 LP, expanded with five bonus tracks from Muddy's next two Chess sessions!
Muddy Waters started out playing acoustic blues in the Delta, and it shows on this return to his roots, designed to appeal to the mid-1960s surge of interest in folk music. The back of the CD includes a photo of Waters with bassist and songwriter Willie Dixon, as well as a very young Buddy Guy, gathered around a single microphone. This particular CD reissue includes five bonus tracks, among which are "The Same Thing" and "Short Dress Woman," which take advantage of the longer CD running time. All of the other reasons to hear this one remain--Waters's strong, confident voice, the relaxed smoothness of the material, and the surprisingly clean recording, made even cleaner by the digital remastering. --Genevieve Williams
|Train Songs: 200 Great Songs about Railroad Heroes, Hobos and Freight Trains
Lowest new price: $26.05
Today the American highways are populated by truckers but before the trucks arrived on the scene, goods were transported by railroad - leading to countless stories, anecdotes and legends that have found their way into the music of the country & western, rhythm & blues and rock & roll scenes and eventually into pop music. There were stories about specific trains, the heroic deeds of railroaders - and the hobos, those fare-dodging tramps who travelled the length and breadth of the country and who were brutally combated by the railroaders and their bosses. These stories have been compiled on this 10 CD box set - many performed by well-known stars while other tracks are true rarities. An absolute "must have" for fans of the great music of the 1950s.
|The Oil Man

Lowest used price: $8.96
Johnson's fat, reverb-drenched guitar tone and convincing vocals make for a potent combination on such classics as Catfish and How Many More Years, and even help to compensate for such obviously derivative songs as I'm Gonna Give Up Disco (a thinly disguised rewrite of Jr. Parker's Mystery Train). Also worth hearing are Johnson's delightfully distinctive treatments of Steel Guitar Rag, and oddly enough, Tom Dooley. -The Washington Post

Title: LOVE SONGS
Street Release Date: 01/23/2001
She's no stranger to the towering highs and lows of the heart, and Etta James's soaring, gospel-tinged pipes match up well with the rigors of unabashed bliss. Happily, the good people at Chess Records recognize this, and they have thoughtfully collected some of the best examples into one tidy record. Kicking off with her classic treatment of "At Last," the collection moves through the lilting strings of "My Dearest Darling" on into the expressive tones of "I Want to Be Loved (But Only by You)" with grace and emotional candor. James can be simultaneously tender and deeply honest and her ability to express the desperate joy that is the soul of love remains one of life's marvelous pleasures. --Matthew Cooke
