(LEFT) A fabulous, super obscure, collectors album; Nudie & His Mandolin is an original pressing from the famed western Tailor & creator of the “Nudie Suit”, worn by Hollywood and Nashville stars alike.  The inside booklet contains dozens of pictures of Nudie and his celebrity friends.  The inside cover includes autographs by Nudie and Guy Madison.  Record is in good condition, minor wear on cover.

(RIGHT) An album recorded by chance on December 18th 1969: Buddy and The Juniors is a raw, informal, acoustic session consisting of Chicago’s greatest blues artists; Buddy Guy, Junior Mance, and Junior Wells. The impromptu recording was done in one day, followed by one day of mixing in the studio, and later released on the Blue Thumb label in 1970.  Its creation began a long feud with Guy’s label at the time, Vanguard.  After they refused to pay for his flight to New York to mix an album he’d already cut with Junior Mance and Gary Bartz, Guy responded by teaming up with “the Juniors” and Blue Thumb boss, Bob Krasnow, to produce this gritty, must have album for blues lovers.  This marble colored vinyl is in great condition, with minimal ware on cover.
