  • Good acoustic Blues from Pure Pleasure

    Buying used Blues records is costly and as far as condition goes, iffy at best.
    These are some really nice traditional Delta/acoustic blues. I've picked them all up through the pure pleasure catalog at, price was around $35 each. First off, they are all quiet. Production is in the 3.5 star to 5 star range. Content is great on all of them. I have several others, but here's a good start. I really like the Fred McDowell and Guy and Wells records
    The legendary Son House...Father of the Delta Blues, The complete 1965 sessions
    Leadbelly..Huddie Leadbetter's best..His guitar-his voice-his piano
    Mississippi Fred McDowell.."I do not play no rock and roll"
    Buddy Guy & Junior Wells "Going Back to Acoustic"

    The Lonnie Johnson and Otis Spann on PP are worth picking up too. Haven't heard the Candid/PP Spann release but Candid recordings are in general very good. Have the 15 ips tape of Lightnin' Hopkins and Memphis Slim also and they are great.

      Those are good choices too, for sure. I haven't listened to the Lonnie Johnson, really can't even remember everything I have from PP. I need to start pulling out all the PP blues I have and start listening to them. I went nuts on two separate orders of around 25 LPs each, cleaned them all and put them on the shelf. Been really enjoying the ones I have heard so far. My Spann is the Candid/PP. Its good but not great.

      Chad also reissued Otis Spann too. Long OOP though.
