Nighthawk Robert - Sweet Black Angel and More Chicago Blues (CD)€13,00
Robert Nighthawk was one of the most influential blues guitarists of the post war period, a stature he achieved without the benefit of many hit records.
His song ’Sweet Black Angel Blues’ became a blues standard when B.B. King covered it as ’Sweet Little Angel’ and B.B. went on to do the same with ’Crying Won’t Help You’.
Across the 23 tracks presented here are top blues musicians such as, Roosevelt Sykes, Sunnyland Slim, Willie Dixon, Brownie McGhee and Pinetop Perkins.
Robert Nighthawk was an important and very underappreciated bluesman whose evocative slide guitar influenced a remarkable number of musicians who followed in his wake.

Kovin uusi Blues äijä Amerikasta.

Campbell Eddie C. - Baddest Cat On The Block: Classic 1985 Studio album (Remixed) (CD)€20,00
t was the mid 1980s and suddenly the London Blues scene was enlivened by the unexpected arrival of a great Chicago Blues legend… Eddie C. Campbell. Maybe unexpected by Eddie himself too… as stories soon started circulating of a very hurried departure from Chicago with a bunch of unsavoury characters chasing him. It didn’t take long for Eddie and me to hook up. He arrived, borrowed some money (having taken a black cab from the other side of London – so not penniless then), and of course we set up some things. He refused my offer to manage him, but I still set up some nice things for him. The album he made in Holland, some nice English gigs and European work through my contacts. And we made an album… Here it is. For this release I dug out the now 35 years old original multi-track session tapes, had them transferred to digital (quite a process, involves ’baking’ the tape first and a careful transfer process) so we could work safely on the music without risking the tapes falling apart in our hands! This has given us a much more powerful mix, a totally new sound. Going back to the original tapes means that we have complete versions of a couple of things that were faded and have I Can’t Sit Down released for the first time. Eddie of course is really strong, he plays that ’West Side’ guitar style superbly and is just a top notch example of a great Chicago Blues club player. This album is completed by four live tracks from the 1992 Tamines Blues Festival. Here Eddie is in more standard blues mode as you would expect from a live performance, but it’s a great contrast and fits in really well. This is simply lovely straight ahead Chicago Blues and it’s a privilege to be able to enable it to see the light of day. This is the kind of release that the CD was invented for! John Stedman, 2021
Hooker Archie Lee - Living In A Memory (CD)€18,00
Built on a foundation of authenticity, passion and innovation, Archie Lee Hooker & The Coast to Coast Blues Band is a spearheading group that has established itself in the world of music. Formed by Archie Lee Hooker, the nephew of John Lee Hooker, Archie and his leading hand-picked team are highly recognised for creating compelling, soul-enriching productions that leave their audiences wanting more.
Archie was born on Christmas Day of 1949 in Lambert, Mississippi, just 20 miles from the crossroads where Robert Johnson supposedly sold his soul to the devil.
He was the son of a sharecropper, and up until age thirteen, that was the life he was accustomed to. That all changed when he headed up north and found himself standing in the big city of Memphis, Tennessee. The paved roads and city lights felt like a new world to Archie, one that was filled with opportunities. Inspired by the Memphis music scene, it didn’t take long for Archie to begin singing with his first gospel group called “The Marvellous Five.” However, December of 1989 was when his passion for Blues started to surface. During this time, Archie lived with his uncle, John Lee (the Boogieman himself) until his death in 2001. Being surrounded by him and other committed, talented, and influencing musicians is what became the catalyst for Archie to crave sharing his own life experiences through music and leave his lasting impressions.
Though Archie left for France in 2011 to join Carl Wyatt & The Delta Voodoo Kings to tour Europe, he eventually chose to seek the right musicians to have on his side. He wanted a team that resembled family, chemistry, and a bond unlike any other. Once he found them, Archie founded the Archie Lee Hooker & The Coast to Coast Blues Band, which was specially named after the late John Lee’s Coast to Coast Blues Band. Since then, the crew has done nothing but thrive and impress. They released their first album called ‘Chilling’ under the French label Dixiefrog in 2018, which received a 5-star review in Rolling Stone Magazine. Fast forward to today, they have recorded a new 12 song CD called ‘Living in a Memory’, and this all-original playlist of storytelling art is set to be released through Dixiefrog worldwide on April 16th, 2021.
In the end, every song and performance that Archie Lee Hooker & The Coast to Coast Blues Band creates paints an incredible picture that inevitably provokes uplifting emotional influences and invested attraction. They are entirely passionate about delivering remarkable music, and continuously provide fully authentic productions that have shaped them to become what they are today. With their immense drive and determination, it is exciting to see what they will launch next.

Winter Johnny - Texas ’63-’68’ (2CD) (CD)€33,00
Johnny Winter had a singular career plan: playing music. The lightning-quick guitarist fulfilled that wish magnificently, decade after decade. A guitar hero without equal. Johnny has always been one of the most respected singers and guitar players in rock and the clear link between British blues-rock and American Southern rock. Throughout the ’70s and ’80s, Johnny was the unofficial torch-bearer for the blues, championing and aiding the careers of his idols like Muddy Waters and John Lee Hooker. Something of a musical child prodigy, he grew up in Beaumont, Texas, on a diet of blues and rock ’n’ roll. As a teen, nearly every weekend he would hitch-hike to Louisiana to play in small night clubs. After a short college stint, he gave up his academic pursuits

Salgado’s huge, expressive vocals deliver wistful, street-wise lyrics that hit hard on a dozen new original songs and a frisky cover of Larry Williams’ ”Slow Down.”
Lankchan Hip - Original West Side Chicago Blues Guitar 2CD (CD)€29,00
”Chicago’s West Side expanded through population growth in the 1950s, creating more Afro-American neighborhoods. It was on the dilapidated and overcrowded West Side that a new and angry music was reared.” Mike Rowe. ”The West Side is bare, it’s down to the blood-line. We played hard-core, bone-crushing blues. The sound was raw, strictly from the throat and stomach.” Jimmy Dawkins. This ’new and angry music’ was blues, played by Buddy Guy, Otis Rush, Magic Sam, Jimmy Dawkins, Luther Allison, Mack Thompson, Johnny B. Moore, Mighty Joe Young, Eddie C. Campbell, Jimmie Lee Robinson and Hip Linkchain. Hip left us with a number of rare and obscure West Side blues 45s, some excellent blues albums and previously unissued material which is being made available for the first time. For good measure included here are four sides by Chicago harmonica player Dusty Brown – who is supported by Hip and his band – recorded for Bandera Records in 1959.
