    Blues

    Originally released in 1994, the Jimi Hendrix Blues album features 11 blues performances recorded by Jimi between 1966 and 1970 showcasing the guitarist's mastery of the 12-bar form. This double-LP audiophile edition of Blues is arguably the best packaged, richest sounding, most coherent post-mortem release from the Hendrix archives.


    Framed by his 1967 acoustic 12-string rendition of "Hear My Train 'A Comin'" and a 1970 Trio performance of the same song, these 11 rough and ready tracks illustrate Hendrix's deep spiritual connections to his blues roots and his daring experimental take on the shape of future blues to come. And they've never sounded so vital, necessary or dynamic!


    This 2LP version will forever stand as the definitive-sounding, high-performance edition of this historic collection.

    Bossa Nova and Blues


    This Sundazed Mono Edition Reproduces The Original Artwork And Presents The Original 12-Song LP On 180 Gram Vinyl Mastered From The Original Analog Reels And Pressed At Record Technology Inc.


    One of the Three Kings of blues guitar along with B.B. and Albert, Texas-born Freddy (Freddie) King influenced everyone from Eric Clapton and Peter Green in the UK to Jerry Garcia and Stevie Ray Vaughan in the States. But even his staying up all night playing poker with Grand Funk wasn't enough to prevent his seminal King/Federal albums from staying out of print on vinyl for decades - until Sundazed came to the rescue. The reissue campaign that began with meticulously mastered editions of King classics Let's Hide Away and Dance Away with Freddy King, Freddy King Gives You a Bonanza of Instrumentals, and Freddy King Goes Surfin' continues with his rare 1963 offering, Bossa Nova and Blues. In the tradition of his surfing album, which wasn't really surf, Bossa Nova and Blues had no bossa nova - but the advertising was at least half true, and hey, there were two cuts that had "bossa nova" in the title. Though King was best known for blues instrumentals, "Bossa Nova Blues" and "The Bossa Nova Watusi Twist" (dig the dance craze threesome) were actually the only two instrumentals on an album otherwise dedicated to bluesy ballads. But of course, Freddie made it work - churning out bonafide classics like the karmic "Someday, After A While (You'll Be Sorry)" (later covered by John Mayall and the Blues Breakers on A Hard Road, also reissued on Sundazed mono LP), the emotive "The Welfare (Turns Its Back on You)," the soulful "It Hurts to Be In Love," and the more uptempo, New Orleans-flavored "You're Barkin' Up the Wrong Tree."

    Angola Prisoners' Blues

    In 1959, a young folklorist and musicologist, Harry Oster, traveled to the State Prison in
    Angola, Louisiana to collect folksongs. He made a number of field recordings while at the
    prison, but his biggest discovery was undoubtedly the Louisiana Blues Hall of Famer, Robert
    Pete Williams, a truly gifted musician and blues writer, who was serving a life sentence. Of
    the 9 songs on this album, four are by Williams, who sings heart-wrenchingly about prison
    life and being down and out. Thanks to Oster, Williams was eventually released from prison,
    and was able to have a fairly successful career as a bluesman in the 60s and 70s, appearing
    at the 1964 Newport Folk Festival and touring the US and Europe. The other musicians
    featured here, fellow inmates Robert Guitar Welch and Matthew Hogman Maxey, are both
    extremely gifted musicians, but in the words of Dr. Oster (who would go on to write the
    Penguin Guide to American Folklore in 2000), they are primarily the heirs of a clearly
    defined and standardized blues tradition, rather than innovators. In any case, this is acoustic
    prison blues at its finest, and includes such detailed liner notes as well as an annotated track
    listing that it is equal parts musical and historical document.
    1. Levee Camp Blues (Robert Pete Williams)
    2. Stagolee (Hogman Maxey)
    3. Electric Chair Blues (Guitar Welch)
    4. Prisoner's Talking Blues (Robert Pete Williams)
    5. Motherless Children Have A Hard Time (Robert Pete Williams)
    6. Black Night Fallin' (Hogman Maxey)
    7. Some Got Six Months (Robert Pete Williams)
    8. I'm Gonna Leave You Mama (Guitar Welch)

    Double LP Features Kid Rock, Keith Urban, Gary Clark, Jr., Beth Hart And Aerosmith Members Steven Tyler, Joe Perry And Brad Whitford!


    Six-time Grammy Award winner and 2012 Kennedy Center Honoree Buddy Guy releases his studio album, Rhythm & Blues, on RCA Records. The follow-up to his 2010 Grammy Award winning album Living Proof, this double-disc masterpiece features first time studio collaborations with A-list artists Kid Rock, Keith Urban, Gary Clark, Jr., Beth Hart and Aerosmith members Steven Tyler, Joe Perry and Brad Whitford.


    Produced by Grammy Award winning producer/songwriter and longtime collaborator Tom Hambridge (Skin Deep, Living Proof), Rhythm & Blues captures the 76 year-young Guy at the peak of his creativity. Replete with heartfelt vocals, straightforward lyrics and mesmerizing guitar licks, Rhythm & Blues not only exemplifies how blues continues to be the foundation of all genres of today's music, it also illustrates why Guy has been influential in the careers of Eric Clapton, Jimi Hendrix, Jeff Beck, Stevie Ray Vaughan and more.


    The Rhythm disc includes rhythm and blues-style blues with deep grooves, such as the Junior Wells' 1960 hit "Messin With The Kid" featuring Kid Rock, the touching "One Day Away" with Keith Urban, and "What You're Gonna Do About Me," a rousing duet with Beth Hart. Guy rounds out the disc with "Best In Town," "Whiskey Ghost," Guitar Slim's "Well I Done Got Over It" and more.


    The Blues disc taps into the genre's rich history with "Meet Me In Chicago," "I Could Die Happy," "Never Gonna Change" and "All That Makes Me Happy Is The Blues." Aerosmith's Tyler, Perry and Whitford contribute to the musical lesson with "Evil Twin" while Gary Clark, Jr. joins Guy on "Blues Don't Care."


    In a career that spans nearly 50 years with over 50 albums released, the incomparable Buddy Guy recently added the prestigious Kennedy Center Honors and NARM Chairman's Award for Sustained Creative Achievement to his long list of achievements. Guy is the recipient of 30 awards and accolades, including 6 Grammy Awards, 28 Blues Music Awards (formerly W. C. Handy Awards), Rock and Roll Hall of Fame induction, the first annual Great Performer of Illinois Award, a Billboard Music Awards' Century Award for distinguished artistic achievement, the Presidential National Medal of Arts, in addition to being listed as one of the 100 Greatest Guitarists of All Time by Rolling Stone.

    I'll Play The Blues For You

    The regal twang and moan of Albert Kings guitar has long been one of the most riveting sounds in urban blues.



    If King hadnt developed his way of bending notes into uncannily human cries, shouts and whispers, modern blues guitar would be a different phenomenon. King played his right-handed guitar upside down and backward, using his left hand. But there was nothing backward about the music he made. Literally pulling emotion from the strings, he created resonance and a sustained wail that distinguished him from all other blues guitarists.



    In Ill Play The Blues For You, one of the prime albums of Kings Stax period, we hear a thrilling live performance of his classic Ill Be Doggone and a hair-raising Dont Burn Down The Bridge. Throughout, the warm ruggedness of the masters singing complements his guitar.

    1. I'll Play The Blues For You (Parts I & II)
    2. Little Brother (Make A Way)
    3. Breaking Up Somebody's Home

    Briefcase Full Of Blues


    Celebrate The New Year With Their Classic # 1 Mega Platinum Debut Album


    First Time Audiophile Vinyl Release


    Mastered Impeccably From The Authorized & Original1978 Atlantic Records Tapes By Joe "i Got The Blues" Reagoso


    After their phenomenal success on Saturday Night Live and a number of smash comedy movies already in
    their resume, John Belushi and Dan Akroyd dove headfirst into their love of soul, blues and r & b and began
    the Blues Brothers duo, netting them a number one album, top hit singles, a box office smash and acclaim
    from purists and blues lovers from all over with their first LP, Briefcase Full Of Blues.


    Recorded in 1978 at the Universal Amphitheater in Los Angeles, the late great John Belushi and Dan
    Akroyd opened a set before comedian and good friend Steve Martin. To the crowd's amazement, the duo
    blasted them a blistering rock 'n' blues performance which was captured on tape for their first album Briefcase
    Full Of Blues. They later appeared on SNL and the rest as they say is history, as this stunt became reality in no
    time and thus began a short lived but amazing piece of rock and blues history.


    Released during the holiday season, the album became a number one smash and netted two smash singles
    with the classic nod to the Stax sound with Sam & Dave's "Soul Man" as well as the '50s doo wop
    classic, "Rubber Biscuit."


    With a stellar musician lineup of classic R & B and traditional blues purists like Steve Cropper and Duck
    Dunn from Booker T. & The M.G.'s, Chess Records sideman to the stars Matt "Guitar " Murphy,
    saxophone champion Tom Scott and a handful of New York City's finest on the reeds, rounded out with Paul
    Shafer on keys, The Blues Brothers were a force to reckon with as their albums would go on to sell in the
    millions making them one of the biggest bands in the late seventies into the eighties.


    With a stunning set list of righteous blues and soulful interpretations, this masterpiece is filled with nonstop classics like the hard boppin' opener Hey Bartender, blues belters like Junior Wells' "Messin' With The
    Kid" and Big Joe Turner's "Flip Flop Fly," plus southern rockers like Delbert McClinton's "'B" Movie Box Car
    Blues."


    In addition to these legendary performances, this unique concert recording yielded more with powerhouses
    like the smash I Don't Know, King Floyd's Groove Me, and the blues thriller Shot Gun Blues.


    Friday Music is no stranger to the blues. Therefore, it is with much honor to announce the first installment

    For the first time ever on 180 Gram Vinyl, this limited edition classic was mastered impeccably and

    Sloe Gin

    Sloe Gin is the seventh solo album by Joe Bonamassa, voted by Guitar Player readers as 2007's Best Blues Guitarist, blues-rock guitar virtuoso, vocalist, and songwriter. Sloe Gin re-teams him with producer Kevin Shirley (Joe Satriani, Black Crowes, Aerosmith, Led Leppelin), who produced 2006's You & Me, which debuted at #1 on Billboard's Blues Chart in June of last year.


    Sloe Gin effortlessly ranges through heavy blues and acoustic numbers alike, a textured flow that Bonamassa says was in part inspired by Rod Stewart's legendary 1969 debut solo LP.

    Louisiana Blues (Colored Vinyl)


    Limited Edition Of 600 On Bottleneck Brown Vinyl


    Comes With A 8 Page Booklet


    Over 50 years since his discovery by ethnomusicologists Dr. Harry Oster and Richard Allen in the prison farm of Angola, Louisiana, what is it that makes the blues as sung and picked by Robert Pete Williams such a singular listening experience, unequaled elsewhere in that musical form? As Peter Guralnick, in his Feel Like Going Home book writes: "It's difficult to approve the banalities of most blues singers after listening to Robert Pete Williams. More than anyone else he shatters the conventions of the form and refuses to rely upon any of the clichÉs, either of music or of lyric, which bluesman after bluesman will invoke. Instead he sings blues which reflect a unique and personal vision; he makes each song unmistakably his own."


    Unfamiliar keys, clichÉ-free lyricism, spontaneity, an individualistic style in invoking his particular blues, all make Robert Pete Williams an idiosyncratic entry into the canon. It's impossible to listen to blues artists before him and hear strains of his particular style. None have matched it since. Louisiana Blues contains 10 songs recorded in the month of July 1966 out in Berkeley, California for John Fahey's Takoma imprint.

    1. Somebody Help Poor Me
    2. Freight-Train Blues
    3. It's Hard To Tell
    4. I'm Going Down Slow
    5. Motherless Children Have A Hard Time

    Framed by his poignant 1967 acoustic 12-string rendition of Hear My Train 'A Comin' and a stirring 1970 trio performance, these 11 rough and ready tracks illustrate Hendrix's deep spiritual connections to his blues roots and his daring experimental take on the shape of future blues to come. And they've never sounded so vital, necessary, or dynamic.



    Cut from the original tapes at Sterling Sound by iconic engineer George Marino under the supervision of Eddie Kramer, and pressed and plated at RTI, this 2LP version will forever stand as the definitive-sounding, high-performance edition of this historic document. You know Hendrix and Co.'s penchant for thrusting the blues into new dimensions. Now experience it like never before.



    Jimi's music is as alive today as it was 40 years ago, and the success of our most recent releases with Sony Legacy provides thrilling confirmation. We have long maintained that the power of Jimi's music and the power of his message would stand the test of time and provide its own bridge to the future, said Janie Hendrix, CEO of Experience Hendrix LLC.



    Being partnered with Legacy enables us to reach a more global audience with that message. And the best is yet to come. What we have in store will propel Jimi into a new decade, with unseen footage and unheard versions of his songs that will absolutely amaze today's music lovers. And we're confident that the distribution is in good hands, opening the door to new and fresh markets. The focus of our endeavors is, and always will be, all about Jimi's music.

    Ranked 30/500 on Rolling Stone Magazine's 500 Greatest Albums of All Time.


    This is a really wonderful album; Joni just laid it all out there for the world to hear. I feel this new version is the true giant killer. Parts were cut, plated and pressed at RTI and the actual 1971 Reprise master tape was used in disk cutting. Most of the songs on this vinyl version were cut without ANY equalization at all so this will be the closest you will ever get to the sound of the true master tape!

    Wonderful, rare Reverend Gary Davis recordings. The sessions that created New Blues And Gospel were the last before Davis death and feature the only studio version of Whistlin Blues. This album was never released in its original form on CD and some of the tracks are not available anywhere else. One of the finest releases by one of the best blues guitar pickers.

    Rooster Blues (Awaiting Repress)

    Louisiana bluesman Lightnin' Slim (nee Otis V. Hicks) began entertaining bar patrons in his native Baton Rouge in the 1940s. By the 50s he was releasing singles on the now legendary Excello label (the blues division of Nashville based Nashboro). This album, his first long player, appeared in 1960 and compiles many of those classic 50s sides. Slim plays a searing electric here and is often accompanied by his brother-in-law, Slim Harpo, on the harmonica, along with a full, rollicking rhythm section heavily influenced by the R&B coming out of NOLA at the time. Lightnin' Slim deserves a place alongside the more often mentioned blues legends of the 50s, like Muddy Waters, John Lee Hooker, and Howlin' Wolf; for proof, one needs to look no further than this excellent debut album.

    The Natch'l Blues

    Taj Mahal's second album, recorded in the spring and fall of 1968, opens with more stripped-down Delta-style blues in the manner of his debut, but adds a little more amplification (partly courtesy of Al Kooper on organ) before moving into wholly bigger sound on numbers like She Caught The Katy And Left Me A Mule To Ride and The Cuckoo -- the latter, in particular, features crunchy electric and acoustic guitars and Gary Gilmore playing his bass almost like a lead instrument, like a bluesman's answer to John Entwistle. Most notable, however, may be the two original closing numbers, You Don't Miss Your Water ('Til Your Well Runs Dry) and Ain't That A Lot Of Love, which offer Taj Mahal working in the realm of soul and treading onto Otis Redding territory. This is particularly notable on You Don't Miss Your Water, which achieves the intensity of a gospel performance and comes complete with a Stax/Volt-style horn arrangement by Jesse Ed Davis that sounds more like the real thing than the real thing. Ain't That a Lot of Love, by contrast, is driven by a hard electric guitar sound and a relentless bass part that sounds like a more urgent version of the bassline from the Spencer Davis Group's Gimme Some Lovin'. This LP reissue includes a trio of bonus tracks: a faster-paced rendition of The Cuckoo with a more prominent lead guitar, the slow electric lament New Stranger Blues featuring some good mandolin-style playing on the guitar, and the rocking instrumental Things Are Gonna Work Out Fine, which is a killer showcase for Davis' lead electric guitar and Taj Mahal's virtuosity on the harmonica.

    Music Blues is Stephen Tanner of Harvey Milk. Things Haven't Gone Well is Tanner's debut as a solo artist and the first album under the name Music Blues. The album was completely written and recorded by Tanner in both Georgia at Harvey Milk's vocalist and guitarist Creston Spiers' house and in his Brooklyn apartment. Tanner continues on with the musical touchstones of Harvey Milk (Melvins, Gore, Earth, ZZ Top, Kiss and Judas Priest) while forging ahead into a strange, and at times harrowing, unknown.

    Thickfreakness

    Akron, Ohio's Black Keys offer crunchy, riff-heavy blues-rock that is remarkably rich and textured, particularly when one considers that they are merely a duo. Continuing in the vein of their 2002 debut, The Big Come Up, this sophomore album leavens their garage blues with enough innovation to keep things interesting, taking full advantage of Dan Auerbachs full-throated growl. Particularly appealing are Hard Row, which lurks somewhere between Cream and punk rock, the strong stomp of Everywhere I Go, and the irresistible guitar riff that graces If You See Me. The Black Keys might be covering familiar territory, but they do it so well--and with so much invention--that one is inclined to yield it to them and see what they do with it.

    Blues Don't Change (On Sale)

    Peter Green was discovered by John Mayall and was lead guitarist in the late 60 s Bluesbreakers before leaving to form Peter Green's Fleetwood Mac with Mick Fleetwood and John McVie. After well documented health problems, Green reappeared in the mid 90's, much changed but with his talent and love of the blues still intact, as an integral part of Peter Green Splinter Group. Blues Don't Change is an album of tracks that inspired Peter Green and the other Splinter Group members to start playing the blues in the first place. These are songs originally made famous by such blues greats as B.B. King, Willie Dixon, Albert King, John Lee Hooker and Freddie King among others.
