Rainy Day Blues

20130714-131140.jpg

Top Left: Dynamic Bobby Bland’s, Here’s The Man!!!  Produced in 1962, this was the first Duke album issued in stereo format.  This is a 1988 repress.  Its not the prettiest, but it plays fine! This album is not available on cd and has not been repressed or released since 88.

Bottom Left:  An RCA Legendary Performer Collection, this is a great Woody Guthrie compilation, documenting his finest “Dust Bowl Ballads”. Released in 77, this issue is in great shape with slight discoloration on the cover, but still includes original booklet insert filled with great photos.

Top Right:  Arkansas Trap, one of George “Harmonica” Smith’s few solo releases, shows his strong admiration for the style of Little Walter. Known mostly for his collaborative work with many of the greats like Muddy Waters, his solo work is also a great, rare find. Released in 1971 on Dream (London Records), this is a promo copy in good condition.

Bottom Right:  Robert Johnson, King of the Delta Blues, was not recognized as such until this 1961 re release on Columbia, allowing his music (recorded in 1936-37) to reach a wider audience for the first time. Now recognized as a master of blues, Johnson died at 27 before his time. This copy in good condition, a must have for any serious blues collector.

“The Possum’s” Last “No Show”

Cloud 8 has been making a big push to broaden the country music LP selection in the store.  Here are a few from Country music legend, George Jones. “No Show” Jones was widely known and often celebrated for his hard-drinkin’, fast-livin’, unreliable reputation which preceded him in the 60′s and 70′s.  With over a 150 hit songs under his belt and buckle, he became an avid, and public complainant of pop influenced, modern country music in his later years.  The 90′s saw Jones and many of his colleagues removed from radio air play for new, weekly, pop hits.  He continued to perform and record right up until the end of his life however, to an ever growing and dedicated fan base. On April 26, 2013, after being hospitalized for fever and irregular blood pressure, Jones died in Nashville, Tennessee. He was 81 years old.
