Mississippi Fred McDowell. Jesus On The Mainline. Two live shows: April 14, 1971 in Tacoma and November 5, 1971 at the Gaslight in New York City (Fred's final recording).
Billie Holiday. Live in Los Angeles 1946. Simply great.
Kak. Kak-Ola (1968). Psychedelic classic. Gary Lee Yoder went on to play with Blue Cheer.
The Who. Back At The Fillmore. (1969). Great.
The Who. Who's Next: Life House. Not sure when I'll get to hear the entire 11-disc box set of Who's Next-era demos, out-takes, and live cuts (1970-1972) since it costs $300, but I'm sure it's great. I've only heard the first disc and a few other songs so far.
Nina Simone. You've Got To Learn. (Live Newport Jazz Festival 1966)
Neil Young. Chrome Dreams.
Iggy Pop. Rare Trax. Alternate versions of some the classics including "China Girl" and "Lust For Life".
The Clash. London Calling (Expanded Edition). A good excuse to go back and listen to this classic album, along with the rehearsal recording The Vanilla Tapes (1979).
Big Joe Williams. Back To The Roots. Big Joe Got The Blues. And he wants to give them to you.
Sister O.M. Terrell. Sister O.M. Terrell. Reminds me of Memphis Minnie and Sister Rosetta Tharpe.
Michael Bloomfield. Living In The Fast Lane (Expanded Edition)(1981). One of the best guitarists ever just hanging out and playing songs.
John Coltrane. Evenings at the Village Gate: John Coltrane with Eric Dolphy. (1961)
HIGHLY ANTICIPATED LATE SUMMER/EARLY FALL RELEASES
Buck Meek. Haunted Mountain. Big Thief's guitarist solo debut. [4AD] August 25
