Laing Corky - Finnish Sessions (CD)€17,00
After years of keeping the American rock legend, of which he is the only living member of the original line-up, alive with his band Mountain, Corky Laing has decided to release his own record once again. In keeping with the band and the recording location, the title ”Finnish Sessions” was chosen. With his Scandinavian backing band, the now 74-year-old Laing has succeeded in creating a remarkable album, which brings Mountain’s style to life in a modern guise. He was supported by Michael Monroe, who contributes the blues harp on ”Totally Wrong” and by Ian Hunter, who contributes the keyboards on ”Even More” and ”My World”. Laing puts his stamp on the songs with his dynamic style of playing the drums and shows with his slightly smoky voice that he is also a good singer. The Swede Conny Bloom sets accents with strong rocking guitar solos on some songs. He is supported in the guitar work by the Finnish multi-instrumentalist Harry Väyrynen, who provides a full sound as a second guitarist and also plays additional drums and the bass on some tracks, which is played on most songs by John Vihervär, who together with Laing on the drums provides a solid rhythm basis. Maria Hänninen contributes the vocals on the last two songs, which are declared as bonus tracks on the album, and thus ensures a varied album, also due to the different singers. With ”Finnish Sessions”, Corky Laing has succeeded in showing that he not only keeps the legacy of Mountain alive, but also has the creativity to expand it with his own songs, which certainly have the quality to be presented live alongside the old classics.
Walton Mercy Dee - One Room Country Shack and Other Struggling Blues (CD)€13,00
MERCY DEE WALTON was a pianist, singer and songwriter, whose oeuvre encompassed Blues, Jump Blues and R&B, invariably bewailing the unattractiveness of rural life.
Invariably billed on record as just MERCY DEE, he remains chiefly important for his US Top 10 R&B hits ’Lonesome Cabin Blues (Log Cabin Blues)’ and ’One Room Country Shack’.
The latter song became established as a Blues standard, and was later closely associated with Mose Allison.
A powerful body of work, this compilation is a selection of popular sides and rarities, recorded between 1949-55, variously for Spire, Imperial, Colony, Rhythm, Flair, and Specialty.
His 1955 Flair release ’Come Back Maybellene’, an answer disc to Chuck Berry’s ’Maybellene’, was a big record among specialist Rock & Roll collectors.
He sadly died of a cerebral haemorrhage in 1962, just a year after recording a fine comeback album, ’Mercy Dee’, for Arhoolie.
Larkin Poe - Blood Harmony (CD)€18,00
Blood Harmony affirms Larkin Poe as an essential force in shaping the identity of Southern rock‘n’ roll, breathing new energy into the genre with both forward-thinking perspective and adecidedly feminine strength. In a departure from the self-contained approach of past albums like2020’sSelf Made Man–praised byAmerican Songwriteras “pumped up for arena-sizedconsumption without compromising any of its stripped-down command and intensity”–LarkinPoe co-producedthe new albumalongside Texas-bred musician Tyler Bryant (also Rebecca’shusband). With Megan handling harmony vocals, lap steel, and resonator guitar and Rebecca onguitar and keys, Larkin Poe also enlisted members of their longtime live band, including drummerKevin McGowan and bassist Tarka Layman. Mainly recorded at Rebecca and Tyler’s home studio,the result is an electrifying new work that fully harnesses the fiery vitality they’ve shown intouring across the globe, imbuing their songs with equal parts soulful sensitivity and thrillingferocity. Fromthe feverish guitar work of “Bad Spell” to the soul-stirring “Southern Comfort” andsmoldering title track,Blood Harmonyreveals a band in complete touch with their formidableintuition, their storytelling fortified with a blues-heavy sound that hits right in the heart.
“When steering by your own stars, you never quite know where you’re going to wind up,” saysLarkin Poe. “Our true north is unique to us, and in following our true north without compromise,we have been out freewheeling this world on theride of our lives. And it still feels like just thebeginning. Blood Harmony is a creative step we are proud to have taken together as sisters.We grew these songs in a sweet part of our hearts and we hope they bring beauty.”
Fusco John - Borderlands (CD)€20,00
Fusco’s third recording outing, an authentic, fun, and often hard-hitting collection that, again, demonstrates his unique cinematic style. While still rooted in blues, gospel, and country-rock, Borderlands draws on Fusco’s deep, long-time affinity with the American West. Or as Fusco, himself, puts it: The wild west soul of America. In a rich collection of interrelated ’chapters’, Fusco sings of desert crossings – both biblical and in real-time – a divided tribe of highway drifters and grifters, cantina preachers, border crossers, an unforgiving drought, gunfights, piano duels, toxic romance, and encounters with unlikely folk saints of the high desert.
Borderlands was produced, engineered and mixed by George Walker Petit in his Stowe, Vermont studio. Petit, an accomplished multi-genre musician with deep roots in the Blues and Jazz, also plays guitars, bass, and various percussion. Russ Lawton of the Trey Anastasio Band plays drums on all tracks while fifth generation Acadian fiddler and mandolinist Patrick Ross joins Fusco on several countrified numbers. Guesting on Dobro and electric slide guitar on two songs is Petit’s old friend and bandmate, Matt Backer – a brilliant musician and guitar slinger. Michael Hartigan contributes a heartfelt accordion performance on ’Horseback Jesus’. Backing Fusco on vocals is acclaimed soul singer Ashley Betton. Jane Boxall also adds her marimba expertise to the recording with Stuart Paton on congas and bongos. Fusco’s rugged, smokey voice has drawn comparisons to Gregg Allman, Tom Waits, Long John Baldry, and, at times, Mac Rebbennack. Singing from behind his Hammond B3 on this new endeavor, he often conjures a desert preacher in some ghost town chapel in a timeless southwest.

Various - More Boss Black Rockers Vol. 3 – All Shook Up (CD)€15,00
Maailman parhaan sarjan jatko!
Ladies, gentlemen, and anyone in between, after the massive (and I must say unexpected) success of the 10-volume series ”Boss Black Rockers” I decided to get back to work and found 280 new tracks for a new series of ten killer volumes. I focused on stuff never or rarely heard anywhere else and also not already been used for other Koko-Mojo Records compilations. That was actually pretty easy. The hard part was finding a cool name for this new series. More often than not ”Easy Does It” so I decided to simply (and cleverly) call it ”MORE Boss Black Rockers”.
As y’all already know, so many similar projects were devoted through the years to white rock and rollers (even the most obscure and unknown) and very little to the people that not only ”originated” this music and played it long before white musicians started to fool around with it. They also continued to play it when black Rhythm and Blues music was suddenly re-named ”Rock and Roll” to appeal to a wider white audience in segregated America and became a multi-racial genre in the mid-1950s. Once again, some tunes are pretty well-known, but the vast majority are not. Chances are that you never-ever heard a lot of the tracks included here – even if a lot of them were pretty popular in the 1950s among both black and white Rock and Roll fans. Most of the artists in this new series (just like the first one) were actually household names in the ”Rock and Roll World” of the ’50s and early ’60s. When Rock & Roll history was re-written from a strictly white rock standpoint only a few black rockers were included (maybe less than a dozen) when actually back in the day almost every African-American R&B act (maybe a MILLION or more) was actually Rock & Roll and white artists were actually a minority for a long time. So ”BLACK” by popular demand here’s to you ”MORE Boss Black Rockers.” DIG IT!

Playing electric guitar from the 1940s working with Big Maceo Merriweather, he influenced musicians like Big Bill Broonzy, Muddy Waters and Elmore James, as his Chicago home became a centre for the blues community. This great-value 121-track 5-CD set comprises selected recordings from the 300 and more titles he released during this era on the Vocalion, Bluebird & RCA-Victor labels, as Tampa Red, Tampa Red & Georgia Tom, Tampa Red’s Hokum Jug Band and Tampa Red And The Chicago Five, referred to on many of his record labels as ”The Guitar Wizard”.

Reed Jimmy - You’re Gonna Need My Help 1953-1962 (CD)€13,00
With his simple, accessible sound and signature laid-back style, JIMMY REED was just about the most commercially successful Blues artist in the USA during the 50s and 60s.
He was also a hugely influential figure on the emerging European and American Blues Boom of the early 60s, notably the Rolling Stones.
The companion to an earlier Jasmine release (Ain’t That Loving You Baby, Singles, As & Bs, 1953-61, JASMCD3034/5), this unique set is largely drawn from Reed’s Vee Jay LP’s, Rockin’ With Reed, Found Love, Now Appearing, Jimmy Reed At Carnegie Hall and Blues Is My Business.
A number of these sides were unissued at the time they were recorded, and later turned up on Charly compilations.
Although there are no actual hits herein, this is all classic, vintage Jimmy Reed repertoire and many of these sides would have made it, had they been issued as singles.
