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: $4.87
Lowest used price: $1.46
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 Complete Blind Willie Johnson
Lowest new price: $14.67
Lowest used price: $8.67
Brand: JOHNSON,BLIND WILLIE
Simply put, "The greatest rural spiritual artist to record" ( Rolling Stone Record Guide ). Johnson's apocalyptic Christian vision, his unbelievable bottleneck playing and his unmistakable vocal growl pack a shattering emotional punch perhaps matched only by Robert Johnson. 30 sides, including Dark Was the Night, Cold Was the Ground .
In the history of recorded blues and spirituals, there is no greater singer and songwriter than Blind Willie Johnson. With a vocal delivery ranging from raw rage to tenderness wedded to his talking guitar, Blind Willie's recordings are as powerful today as when he made them, from 1927 to 1930. Listen to monuments "Motherless Children Have a Hard Time," "I Just Can't Keep from Crying," "It's Nobody's Fault but Mine," and the otherworldly "Dark Was the Night, Cold Was the Ground," and try to find equally visceral conviction any other place or time. His "If I Had My Way I'd Tear The Building Down" which got him arrested when Blind Willie unknowingly sang it in front of a U.S. government building in Dallas, became a '60s icon. Years later, he caught pneumonia, but when treatment was sought, he was told the hospital did not treat blind people, so he returned home and died. --Alan Greenberg

|Ballad For Americans
Lowest new price: $12.76
Lowest used price: $1.24
Legendary American actor/concert performer Paul Robeson sings as deep as a well and as wide as an ocean on the reissue of Ballad for Americans. His unmistakable bass-baritone makes the rafters ring on this excellent, eloquent collection of spirituals, work songs, folk songs, and pop tunes. The epic 10-minute title track--composed by Earl Robinson and John LaTouche--is a compendium of American musical forms and a celebration of American spirit, delivered in a call-and-response style that finds Robeson playing a true everyman to the questioning crowd. His patriotism--as rich and complex as his voice--is in full flower here; ironic since he was driven to self-exile in Europe during the Red Scare. --Michael Ruby
|A Day for the Hunter, A Day for the Prey
Lowest new price: $8.85
Lowest used price: $7.99
Leyla McCalla's new album A Day For The Hunter, A Day For The Prey, takes it's title by a book of the same name that the singer and cellist read while pregnant with her first daughter. Taking it's title in turn from a Haitian proverb, the book analyzes the intersection of politics, power and music in Haiti. McCalla, a former member of The Carolina Chocolate Drops who now calls New Orleans home, was struck by how political crisis can create a scene for music to be born. Through deeply felt originals and interpretations of traditional songs from Creole, Cajun, Haitian, American folk and jazz canons, the album depicts a diverse American experience and Leyla's struggles with and acceptance of her own identity. A Day For The Hunter, A Day For The Prey includes guests Rhiannon Giddens (a bandmate in the Carolina Chocolate Drops), guitarist Marc Ribot, fiddler Louis Michot of Lost Bayou Ramblers and more. Named 2013's Album of the Year by the London Sunday Times and Songlines magazine, Leyla McCalla's debut album, Vari-Colored Songs: A Tribute to Langston Hughes, made a profound impression upon all who heard it. The record, which set some of Hughes' poems to Leyla's music, and also included original compositions and Haitian folk songs, received rapturous reviews for it's haunting mixture of music and message.

Title: ANTHOLOGY 1947-72

Genre: BLUES TRADITIONAL
Muddy Waters should need no introduction. Not only did he provide a name for the world's greatest rock & roll band, but he also created the Chicago electric blues sound that's dominated the genre since he first hit the windy city in the late 1940s. His bands also featured what would become a who's who of electric blues: Little Walter, Jimmy Rogers, Otis Spann, James Cotton, Junior Wells, Buddy Guy, and the list goes on. The Anthology covers Waters's most important period: his first years at Chess through the late 1960s. All his best-known songs are featured in their definitive versions, providing the perfect introduction to a blues master who doesn't need one. --Mike Johnson
