    Lil Son Jackson

    Texan bluesman Melvin Lil Son Jackson was a contemporary of Lightnin Hopkins who originally recorded for the Gold Star and Imperial labels in the 40s and 50s. A car accident in the mid-50s led to Jackson giving up the music career and returning to work as a mechanic. Arhoolies Chris Strachwitz pulled him out of retirement in 1960, convincing him to record this classic and rare Texas blues LP. Reissued in all its original glory.

    Texas Blues Man

    Includes MP3 Download


    Lightnin' Hopkins had already recorded dozens, if not hundreds, of sides for various labels by the time he hooked up with Chris Strachwitz in the late '50s, but his recordings for Strachwitz's Arhoolie label are some of the rawest and strongest of his career. Originally released in 1968, this classic slab of Texas blues is reissued here on high quality vinyl with an exact reproduction of the paste-on sleeve.

    Tough Times

    Includes MP3 Download


    Big Joe Williams is one of the most unique blues artists of all-time. Playing a 9-string guitar of his own creation and belting out the blues in his nearly incomprehensible style, this is an absolute classic of an LP and one of the earliest releases on the legendary Arhoolie label. Reissued here on high quality vinyl with an exact reproduction of the paste-on sleeve.

    The very first release on the legendary Arhoolie label, from way back in 1960, is also the first for Texas acoustic blues great Mance Lipscomb who was a mere 65 years old at the time of its release. Prior to being discovered by the labels founder, Chris Strachwitz, Lipscomb had spent his life as a sharecropper in his hometown of Navasota, Texas. Lipscombs discovery was one of the greatest by-products of the blues and folk revival of the late 50s and early 60s as this fantastic vinyl reissue of his first album will attest. Classic country-blues from a master.

    Hot Chili Mama

    Beausoleil has been steadily releasing albums of indigenous Louisiana music since the mid-'70s. Led by the incendiary fiddle playing of founding member Michael Doucet, the group draws on Cajun (a hybrid of American country and traditional French folk songs), zydeco (a hybrid of Cajun and R&B), rock, jazz, and blues. Though each of Beausoleil's releases is supremely roots-conscious, some, such as Hot Chili Mama, represent the spectrum of the group's influences.


    Such conventional Cajun material as Le Bons Temps Rouler Waltz and the spicy, danceable title cut, which features standard zydeco percussion such as rubboard, triangle and spoons, alternate with touches of calypso (La Chanson De Cinquante Sous), and even a tongue-in-cheek stab at klezmer gumbo (The Mosquito That Ate Up My Sweetheart in New Iberia Polka). Fertile fiddle and accordion interplay and, of course, French lyrics bring the music's rich history to the fore, while the band's adventurous and vigorous approach makes these songs anything but museum pieces. Hot Chili Mama is one of Beausoleil's best, most representative efforts.
