Howlin' Wolf/Moanin' in the Moonlight CD (1986) Top Seller
Complete Studio Recordings songs Recorded in Memphis, Tennessee and Chicago, Illinois between 1951 and March 1959. Originally released on Chess (9195) in 1959. Includes original liner notes by Ralph Bass.
Recorded in Chicago, Illinois between June 24, 1957 and May 1961. Originally released on Chess in 1962. Includes original liner notes by Paul Ackerman.
Simply put, this disc is indispensable for anyone interested in blues, rock, or good music in general. One of the rare, genuine "deals" on record store shelves, this two-fer compiles Howlin' Wolf's first two full-length albums on one CD and offers twenty-two tracks of the man's absolute finest. These are the essential documents of the man who was the last word in electric Chicago blues--a unique and riveting performer whose voice could loose buildings from their foundations and remove skin from bone.
Wolf's visceral impact is overwhelming at times, and his performances on these tunes are definitive. All his best-known and loved are here, including "Shake For Me," "The Red Rooster," "Wang Dang Doodle" Spoonful," "Evil" and "Forty Four." As good, if not better, than any "best of" collection, MOANIN' IN THE MOONLIGHT/HOWLIN' WOLF is a must.

Born Under a Bad Sign CD (1967) Top Seller
Complete Studio Recordings buy CD music The giant left-handed guitarist was no stranger to the recording studio by 1966, but Albert King had still to make his mark with the record-buying public. When he linked up with the cream of Stax's Memphis musicians, including Booker T. And The MGs and the Memphis Horns, that connection was made. "Laundromat Blues", "Oh, Pretty Woman" and "Crosscut Saw" set the scene for "Born Under A Bad Sign" and "The Hunter", which quickly found their way into the repertoires of Cream and Free. The convolutions of his guitar style were perfectly complemented by the trademark Stax funk rhythms. The team went on to make many more singles and albums, none of which could surpass the achievements of their first meeting.
Recorded at Stax Recording Studio, Memphis, Tennessee between March 1966 and June 1967.

|Blind Willie Johnson|
Complete Blind Willie Johnson CDs (1993) Top Seller
Complete Studio Recordings album for sale Recorded between 1927 and 1930. Includes liner notes by Samuel Charters.
Digitally remastered by David Mitson (Sony Music Studios, Los Angeles, California).
A bottleneck guitarist of consummate skill, Blind Willie Johnson was a traveling evangelist who preached the gospel by playing and singing such message-heavy tunes as "I Know His Blood Can Make Me Whole," and "If It Had Not Been for Jesus." But there is not a whit of squeaky-clean, Sunday-morning sweetness to Johnson's music. Overwhelmingly intense, Johnson's performances are all open wounds and raw nerves. THE COMPLETE collects everything the artist ever recorded, and makes a case for Johnson as one of the most passionate, affecting bluesmen of all time.
It is Johnson's singing that truly startles. A gruff yet finely nuanced bass, Johnson sings with a voice that could grind glass, wrenching out spiritually committed messages in a manner both primal and sublime. Johnson also displays great variety, be it the stark, understated intensity of "Dark Was the Night - Cold Was the Ground" (where he wordlessly vocalizes in a hush over ghostly riffs) or the full-tilt prophetic perfection of "John the Revelator" (a duet with Willie Harris). THE COMPLETE BLIND WILLIE JOHNSON is an utterly essential set of the most hair-raising gospel blues ever put to tape. Be prepared.
This is part of Columbia/Legacy's Roots N' Blues series.
Personnel includes: Blind Willie Johnson (slide guitar, vocals).
Reissue producers: Lawrence Cohn, Gary Pacheco.
Father of the Delta Blues: The Complete 1965 Sessions CDs (1992) Top Seller
Complete Studio Recordings CD music In 1965, Son House recorded the 21 tracks featured on FATHER OF THE DELTA BLUES for Columbia Records. Whereas the nine songs on disc one were released that year as THE LEGENDARY SON HOUSE, the 12 alternate takes and previously unissued songs on disc two, including an elegy called "President Kennedy," remained unheard until this 1992 release.
Contains 9 tracks previously released on Columbia as THE LEGENDARY SON HOUSE: FATHER OF FOLK BLUES and 12 previously unreleased and/or alternate takes from the same session. The set also includes liner notes in which Son House relates a story about Robert Johnson.
By the time his name was spreading through the collegiate blues circles of the early '60s, Eddie James "Son" House, Jr. had been retired for nearly 20 years. Son House was already legendary for a small collection of live field recordings made by folklorist Alan Lomax in 1941 and 1942-and for having taught some important licks to both Robert Johnson and Muddy Waters. Tracked down by his new fans in 1964, Son House regained his chops and went out on the college blues circuit for several years, showing worshipful youngsters just why he deserved the title "Father of the Delta Blues."

|1928 Sessions CD (1988)
Complete Studio Recordings songs In almost diametrical opposition to the raw, boisterous styles of other Delta bluesmen of the same period, Mississippi John Hurt sings and plays in a quiet, understated, and frankly beautiful manner. Whereas Charlie Patton and Robert Johnson impress with pyrotechnically rhythmic fretwork and gutsy, dramatic vocal performances, Hurt's deft, strictly metrical guitar style and hushed but nuanced and sensitive voice dazzle in their own way. A farmhand in Avalon, Mississippi--a town of less than 100 people--Hurt spent the evenings of the '20s playing "household music," music intended only for the entertainment of family and friends and not for commercial gain.
There is no way Hurt could have imagined the impact his music would have on the '60s folk revival movement or the significance and longevity that his achievements would enjoy. 1928 SESSIONS, issued by Yazoo with astonishingly clear sound, is arguably the finest document of Hurt's music. Shifts from traditional blues ("Avalon") to church music ("Blessed Be The Name") and such rags a "Stack O'Lee Blues" vary the tempo but never disrupt the gentle, homespun atmosphere. More textured works, such as "Frankie," spotlight Hurt's accomplished accenting technique on guitar. 1928 SESSIONS is an essential addition to any blues collection.
