Junior Wells – Hoodoo Man Blues 200g 45RPM Analogue Productions VinylAPB034-45

Now in a gatefold jacket with faithfully reproduced Delmark True Stereo artwork! Plated and pressed on 200-gram 2LP at Quality Record Pressings! New additional liner notes by Jim O'Neal, co-founder of Living Blues Magazine! "This viscerally punchy electric blues is anchored by unimprovable harp playing from Junior Wells, a young Buddy Guy by his side. From the kick of up-tempo numbers like "Snatch It Back and Hold It" to the deep, sexy, slow moan of "Early in the Morning," you just can't top this. Current audiophile bona fides are in excellent order, thanks to fine remastering by Kevin Gray and Analogue Productions for 45 RPM, LP, SACD/CD, and DSD download." — Sasha Matson, Stereophile's Records To Die For, February 2018

Shakey Jake – Mouth Harp Blues – Analogue Productions 45RPM 180g 2 LP Vinyl

The late James Harris earned the moniker “Shakey Jake” due to his proficiency at dice, but he was equally adept at the blues game. The Arkansas-born, Chicago-based singer and harmonica blower traveled to Rudy Van Gelder’s New Jersey studio in November 1960 to record Mouth Harp Blues.. Jake brought along Jimmie Lee Robinson, the brilliant, fast-fingered guitarist best known for his work with Little Walter’s band. Also making tasty contributions to the session was Robert Banks, the New York R&B and gospel studio organist who, in this case, ably appointed himself as a two-fisted blues piano stylist. Among the 10 selections is the distinctively loping “Easy Baby,” a tune also associated with Jake’s nephew Magic Sam.
