Brand: WILLIAMSON,SONNY BOY
Directly or indirectly, Sonny Boy (a.k.a. Rice Miller) influenced every blues harmonica player after him-Junior Parker, Little Walter and Junior Wells to name a few. But he was also a major contributor to the blues repertoire, leaving behind songs that would inspire generations of artists. This collection features 15 of his classic songs, including Don't Start Me Talkin'; Keep It to Yourself; Help Me; Bring It On Home; One Way Out; Fattening Frogs for Snakes , and more.
This is Sonny Boy Williamson II, whose 1940s Mississippi Delta radio broadcasts for King Biscuit Time made him one of the most influential of all blues musicians. A master harmonica player, he created relaxed songs, often humorous, that reminded urban listeners of their country roots. These tracks are from his years at Chess, beginning in the mid-1950s until his death in 1965. His recording bands feature Muddy Waters, Otis Spann, and Robert Lockwood Jr., among others. Perhaps his best-known track here is "Don't Start Me to Talkin' (I'll Tell You Everything I Know)," but his signature sound is evident on every high trill he played. --Robert Gordon
|The London Howlin' Wolf Sessions
Lowest new price: $10.06
Lowest used price: $3.59
You won't find this album anywhere on CD except for this pricey gold disc version, which is pretty sneaky of MCA, but also means it sounds great! This is the album that paired the Wolf with British blues-rockers Eric Clapton, Bill Wyman, Steve Winwood, Charlie Watts, etc. with terrific results. Also includes tracks from the never-reissued Muddy and the Wolf: London Revisited album.
|The Sherman Holmes Project: The Richmond Sessions
Lowest new price: $8.75
Lowest used price: $4.27
The Richmond Sessions carries on the spirit of the Holmes Brothers by re-imagining songs and making them their own. The record maintains a bluesgrass/gospel vibe throughout that surprises and delights. Special Guests Include Joan Osborne, Rob Ickes & Sammy Shelor.
Sherman Holmes solo debut The Richmond Sessions can t help being a milestone: It s the esteemed singer and bassist s first recording since the passing of his brother and musical partners, Wendell Holmes and Popsy Dixon, both in 2015. But his solo debut, dedicated to the memories of Wendell and Popsy, is no somber affair. The blend of bluegrass, gritty rock & roll and joyful gospel will be familiar from Holmes Brothers days. And with some of his strongest vocals on record, the album shows Sherman is still an artist in his prime.
|Hoodoo Man Blues [Vinyl]
Lowest new price: $15.97
Lowest used price: $13.91
Brand: Delmark (Label)
(VINYL LP) Hoodoo Man Blues is not only Junior Well's initial LP appearance, it is damn near the first LP by a Chicago blues band. Chess and a few other labels had reissued 45's by Muddy Waters, Sonny Boy Williamson, Howling Wolf, Jimmy Reed, Elmore James, etc. but virtually no one had tried to capture the Chicago blues sound free of limitations of juke-box/airplay promotion. Delmark is proud of the part Hoodoo Man Blues played in the popularization of the real Chicago blues and of Junior Wells. But the credit belongs to Junior, Buddy, Jack and Billy - they made the music. We just sat and dug it.
Hoodoo Man Blues is considered by most blues aficionados and fans to be one of the best blues albums of all time. It was inducted into the Grammy Hall of Fame and was chosen by the readers of Living Blues magazine as a top ten Desert Island Blues disc. Recorded on September 22 & 23, 1965 Hoodoo Man Blues was the first studio album to capture a working Chicago blues band doing essentially what they did on stage without time constraints to accommodate the singles market. Of course both Junior Wells & Buddy Guy went on to become international blues stars.

|Ultra-Lounge: Wild Cool & Swingin' - Artist Series, Vol. 1: Louis Prima & Keely Smith
Lowest new price: $12.63
Lowest used price: $3.79
Brand: Prima, Louis & Keely Smith
2 CDs of the classic sides he laid down with Keely Smith and Sam Butera! Includes That Old Black Magic; I've Got You Under My Skin; Hey Boy, Hey Girl!; The Music Goes 'Round and 'Round; Oh Marie; Up a Lazy River; Fee Fie Foo; Jump, Jive an' Wail; Angelina/Zooma Zooma; Buona Sera; Basin Street Blues/When It's Sleepy Time Down South; Just a Gigolo/I Ain't Got Nobody , and more. 44 tracks!
The back of this two-CD set may say "File under Lounge," but frankly, lounging will be the very last thing on your mind once you put Louis and Keely on. It's simply impossible to stand still while the duo, backed by Sam Butera and the Witnesses, gets going. When Keely sings "Hey boy, I can really cook," there's a tiny chance she's talking about something that takes place in the kitchen, but the galloping bass line behind her says that she really belongs to the dance floor. Whoo-hee! Cole Porter's "Just One of Those Things" is taken at a frenetic pace--do these people ever pause to breathe? The bulk of this collection was recorded between 1957 and 1962, and it makes for an explosive document of a now-gone era when men in sharp suits hung out at the Copa, babes with pointy rocket-launcher breasts at their arms. The sheer effortlessness of it all is still supremely exciting. --Elisabeth Vincentelli
|Howlin' Wolf: His Best (Chess 50th Anniversary Collection)
Lowest new price: $5.02
Lowest used price: $1.98
Nobody could howl like the Wolf, and his Chess sessions produced some of the best blues records ever made. And this is the best of the best, including How Many More Years; Smokestack Lightnin'; Killing Floor; Wang Dang Doodle; Back Door Man; The Red Rooster; I Ain't Superstitious; 300 Pounds of Joy; Evil; Sitting on Top of the World , and 10 more Howlin' Wolf classics as only he could do them.
Chester Burnett's ferocious growl was a staple of Chicago's electric-blues heyday. This 20-song compilation ranges from his 1951 debut "Moanin' at Midnight" with Willie Johnson on guitar to 1964's "Killing Floor" with Buddy Guy on guitar. His scratchy, sawed-off vocal approach and his energetic harmonica grace original classics such as "How Many More Years" and "Smokestack Lightnin'." By 1960, he became, along with Muddy Waters, the foremost interpreter of Willie Dixon's songs, lending his coarse voice to legendary Dixon cuts such as "Wang Dang Doodle," "Back Door Man," "Spoonful," "The Red Rooster," and "I Ain't Superstitious." Wolf's style was based on primal raw power, and he ranks among the genre's most distinctive performers. --Marc Greilsamer
