Blues & Gospel Catalog

When I started in the blues mail order business nearly 30 years ago there were maybe two hundred blues albums available with perhaps three or four new releases every month. This listing contains over 4,000 titles with dozens of new releases appearing every month and an almost equal number going out of print. This list is by no means complete - new, small companies are appearing regularly, some of them with no distribution to speak of. So this list concentrates on albums we know we can get and with a leaning towards the styles and artists we are particularly fond of. scott.gif (4434 bytes)

There’s lots of great music in this list to enjoy and we look forward to assisting you with your listening pleasure.
