Hound Dog Taylor - Tearing The Roof Off: Hard Rocking Chicago Slide Guitar Blues 1962-1982 (2CD) (CD)€29,90
When I die, they’ll say ’he couldn’t play shit, but he sure made it sound good!’
Hound Dog Taylor While producing this set JSP’s John Stedman remarked ’the reason this music is so tough, it’s played by tough old bastards.’ Hound Dog Taylor and The HouseRockers (Hound Dog on slide guitar, Brewer Phillips on guitar and Ted Harvey on drums) were indeed tough – both on and off stage. Greg Lawrie, a musician who toured with Hound Dog during a 1975 Australian tour (with Freddie King, Sonny Terry and Brownie McGhee, Alexis Korner and Duster Bennett) described Hound Dog and the HouseRockers as ’one of the rock ’n’ rollinest bands ever, completely authentic, 100% raw blues, real rock and roll blues. Hound Dog tore the roof off every night with his slide guitar. He was a fantastic player, very basic, but he hit what needed to be hit, no more, no less.’ Bruce Iglauer described Brewer Phillips as: ’The rawest and most energised bluesmen I ever heard. His playing and singing were totally unpolished. He took lots of musical chances and made tons of mistakes, but his playing was full of infectious rhythmic drive, and he had more fun on the bandstand than virtually anyone I’ve ever seen.’ Brewer’s guitar sound is described as ’deep rooted in the Delta blues’ and as having an ’ice pick-in-your-ear sheet-metal tone produced from his battered Telecaster executed with a thumb pick and bare fingers.
B.B. And The Blues Shacks - Breaking Point (CD)€15,00
B. B. and The Blues Shack’s new album Breaking Point is released by Rhythm Bomb Records (RB6013) and the album comprises fifteen songs. Twelve of the song’s titles are original songs and the band handpicked three covers, all of which are embellished with the group’s style and panache. The quintet innovatively has written their songs which stand admirably beside their idol’s songs and maintain the ambiance of the originators of Rhythm & Blues music. The five exponents of rhythm perform with a musical leaning towards jump Rhythm & Blues, with a full brass section booting along with their frenetic sound, which compels you to get up and dance. The line-up is; Michael Arlt (vocals & harmonica), Andreas Arlt (guitar & vocals), Henning Hauerken (upright & electric bass), Fabian Fritz (piano & organ), and Andre Werkmeister (drums). Extra musicians on the session are, Tom Müller (saxophone), and Stefan Gössinger (trumpet). Musically they are old-school Rhythm & Blues with a dash of soul, served up in their unique style, be it on an album or stage their sound compares admirably. Inspirationally they take their interest from the originators of the Chicago, and Louisiana blues, with a clear and definable electric blues guitar approach to propel alone the tempo.To date, they have a legacy of sixteen albums, and due to their showmanship, they havefirmly been established themselves within the blues-music scene. With Breaking Point, they continue with their quest to promote Rhythm & Blues music and entertain fans both old and new.
Various - Meet Mrs. Santa Claus (CD)€15,00

This time around Victor has handpicked 28 fabulous Christmas tunes by some real gone lady singers. It’s always all about Mr. Santa Claus here and Mr. Santa Claus there. It doesn’t have to be that way. Move over old man ’cause Mrs. Santa is coming to town. Many great tracks are featured from Mabel Scott (Boogie Woogie Santa Claus), Alma Cogan (Mrs. Santa Claus), Pearl Bailey (Jingle Bells Cha-Cha-Cha), Mahalia Jackson (Go tell It On The Mountain), The Platters with their female vocalist Zola Taylor singing lead (All I Want For Christmas Is My Two Front Teeth), Eartha Kitt with a gritty and rarely heard live version of a song ( Santa Baby) recorded in 1962.

Various - Bronze Christmas (CD)€15,00
Another fantastic Christmas delight from Koko-Mojo Records (and the first one on their ”Black History” Series). Back in the day the term ”bronze” was used in the USA to describe African Americans. In other words, it was a synonym of negro, black, sepia, coloured etcetera. After trying all these names, the compiler of this anthology (the mighty ”Mojo” Man) decided to call it “Bronze Christmas” because ”Black Christmas” was too obvious and has been largely used for many similar projects. Nevertheless, this compilation is all about ”Black Christmas” and black folks singing about Christmas, New Year’s Eve etcetera. The ”Mojo” Man (a.k.a. Little Victor Mac) selected some of his favourite tunes by ”bronze” artists guaranteed to make your Christmas maybe a little less white but merrier and with a whole lot of extra soul. This collection features 28 songs from the likes of the Mills Brothers (their version of ”Here Comes Santa Claus” included here inspired Elvis Presley who used their arrangements on his 1957 Christmas album), Louis Armstrong, Harry Crafton, Chuck Berry, Larry Darnell, Hank Ballard, Big Bud, Little Willie Littlefield, The Pilgrim Travellers (their version ”I’ll Be Home For Christmas” was also popularized by Elvis), Huey Piano Smith, Ella Fitzgerald and a lot more.

Various - And This Is Maxwell Street 3CD Boxset (CD)€50,00
On Sunday mornings at Chicago’s famous Maxwell Street open-air market, busking bluesmen would battle with hawkers, preachers, and dancers for coveted space. In 1964 filmmaker Mike Shea chronicled this bubbling scene for his landmark documentary And This is Free; in the process, he preserved stunning examples of raw, informal, gritty, undeniably urban blues, the best of which is included on these two revelatory CDs. Amazingly, legendary figures like Robert Nighthawk and Carey Bell were as likely to show up as any number of local gospel singers and blues pickers. Nighthawk’s tenacious saw-toothed guitar work and Bell’s swooping harp are well documented here, as is the work of lesser-known Chicago players like Johnny Young and Big John Wrencher. However, in this setting, the songs of obscure players like Arvella Gray, who performed solo with a Dobro, and the James Brewer gospel singers seem nearly as important. Rooster Blues’s superb package includes incredibly detailed annotation, which does an admirable job in trying to sort out the correct players and songwriters, and crisp remastering–two things that the unauthorized Rounder single-disc issue lacks–plus a bonus third disc featuring young Mike Bloomfield’s interview with Nighthawk. Like field recordings are to country blues, these street recordings are much more than mere music–they are compelling historical documents. –Marc Greilsamer
Knight Marie - Gospel Train – The Marie Knight Story (CD)€13,00
MARIE KNIGHT started out as a Gospel singer in the early 1940s, recording with several renowned groups, before teaming up with the mighty Sister Rosetta Tharpe, with whom she worked extensively until the mid-50s.
Their body of work together included releases like ’Precious Memories’, ’Up Above My Head’ and ’My Journey To The Sky’, which are among Tharpe’s highest acclaimed work.
Under her own steam she cut sides like ’I’ll Let Nothin’ Separate Me From The Lord’, ’Gospel Train’ (which made the R&B Top 10), ’Satisfied With Jesus’ and the bluesy ’I Just Can’t Keep From Cryin’, before switching to secular music with releases like ’Tell Me Why’, ’Grasshopper Baby’ and ’Look At Me’.
Her outstanding R&B/Soul sides were the wild ’I Thought I Told You Not To Tell Them’, ’I Can’t Sit Down’ (a duet with Rex Garvin), ’Come Tomorrow’, which would be successfully revived by Manfred Mann in the mid-60s and ’Come On Baby (Hold My Hand)’.
This compilation traces her musical journey from mainstream 1940s Gospel, through mid-50s R&B, to early 60s embryonic Soul, across ten different record labels.

Larkin Poe - Paint The Roses (Live In Concert) (CD)€17,00
Innovative hybrid orchestra Nu Deco Ensemble brought their genre-bending orchestral music to fans around the world through their 2020-2021 virtual performance season including a collaborative concert with Larkin Poe on December 12, 2020, streamed live from the Miami Beach Bandshell. It was at the Nu Deco Ensemble collaborative concert that Larkin Poe got to play their Self Made Man album songs for the first time in front of a social distanced audience. Self Made Man is undeniably the Lovell’s most wide reaching, artistically adventurous, and self-determined work to date, finding the multi-instrumentalist sister duo, pushing their music and message towards hitherto unexplored terrain. Inspired by their epic world travels yet still powerfully rooted in the creative heritage of their beloved American South, the album was ambitious in both it’s eclectic, energetic sound and it’s resolutely welcoming mission, it’s universal lyrical approach fueled by tradition, invention, and Larkin Poe’s remarkable ability to touch the hearts and souls of their fellow humans worldwide.
