Alors ci-dessous ce sont donc tous les Mississippi Records (et assimilés…) disponibles :
MRP-046 V/A – Which Way Does The Blood Red River Run? LP – 12 euros
Compilation of some of the best songs recorded for the Testament label between 1961 & 1967. Here we have the deep spirituals of Fred & Annie McDowell, the haunting music of Peg Leg Howell, the long form lonesome blues of Skip James contemporary Jack Owens, the pretty drifting tunes of Elijah Brown & the plaintive ballads of Jimmie Tarlton. A really intense & strong record. No filler allowed – just the heaviest stuff we could find. Old school "tip on" cover. A co-release with our friends at Sutro Park, the king of all contemporary blues reissue labels.
SCR-002 Stooges Brass Band- Street Music LP – 11 euros – OUT OF STOCK
Street Music is the second full-length album and first vinyl release for New Orleans legendary
STOOGES BRASS BAND. It showcases the band at a creative peak, performing some of the best
known tunes from live shows, including the powerful tribute to trombonist “Shotgun Joe” Williams
called Why They Had To Kill Him and their version of the O’Jays’ classic Family Reunion entitled
appropriately, Stooges Reunion. The STOOGES BRASS BAND sold out Brooklyn Bowl in
January and have played on stages from coast to coast, including Bonnaroo, High Sierra, Utah Jazz
Festival, New Orleans Jazz and Heritage Festival, Blue Note Jazz Festival, Essence Fest, Lincoln Center, and
JFK Center. The urban brass band sound played by the Stooges follows in a direct line from
Congo Square in New Orleans’ 6th Ward (Treme) incorporating funk, modern jazz, and hip hop.
This is literally street music, and the Stooges stay grounded in those streets, playing second
lines on many a Sunday afternoon throughout the year. In 2012 they were named the “Best Contemporary
Brass Band” at the Big Easy Awards.

WW08 THE ANDROIDS OF MU – Blood Robots LP – 12 euros ( audio )
The Androids Of Mu were a noisy all-girl early post-punk band that emerged from London, UK, in 1979, alongside the likes of The Slits and The Raincoats.They met up in the wild squatter-lands of west London. Suze the Blooz, Corrina, Cozmic and Bess became immersed in the local counter-culture. They grounded themselves in psychedelic synthesizer and guitar music, playing with Planet Gong and Here & Now, and musicians from Hawkwind. When they finally got hold of a cheap synth and a noisy guitar of their own, they used them, at full volume, with fat bass and bouncing drums, to record an album in the form of their new, colourful and zazzy reflections of life, from under the long dark shadow of puppet Thatcher's corporate new Britain. They gigged around, sharing bills with the likes of The Mob, Zounds and The Astronauts.
Blood Robots was recorded at lo-fi cult studio Street Level in 1979, this was their only ever album, originally released on Fuck Off Records. Now, cruel world, it is time for you to receive it. (This 2013 release has been carefully remastered from the original tapes. Includes insert with early photos and complete songwords).

MRP-051 Cast King – Saw Mill Man LP – 12 euros ( audio )
Cast King of Old Sand Mountain was a great country singer/songwriter. His songs sound as if they have been here since the beginning of time.

Twelve of our favorite songs by amazing Texas blues songster Henry Thomas.

HAGAR THE WOMB – LP – 10 euros ( audio – la galette sonne bien mieux que ça)
Orchestre Regional de Mauritanie LP – 12 euros – OUT OF STOCK
Nouakchott is one of the strangest places on earth. A sleepy fishing village chosen to be the capital of Mauritania upon it's independence from France in 1960, it was programmatically built over & has seen it's population suddenly double or triple more than once. A lot of people live in tents, water is scarce, and one of the local political tangles is the continued existence of slavery. The desert blows in & slowly buries buildings, pushing the city ever closer to the coast. And most of the musicians play parties & weddings instead of recording. During the country's early years, the president sent musicians to Conkary for music lessons in hopes of starting a national band to make specifically Mauritanian music. The band that resulted was led by singer Hadrami Ould Meidah. Slow, spacious & melancholy afrofunk with flute & electric wah-wah. Tracklisting: Senam-Mosso, Oumletna, Kamlat, La Femma Mauritanienne, Mauritanie Mon Pays Que J'Aime, Douga Sosso, Chabab El Bilad.
V/A-A Short Life Of Trouble LP – 11 euros OUT OF STOCK
Adding electricity to the recording process round about 1925 allowed softer instruments that people had in their houses, like dulcimers, little guitars, or autoharps, to be picked up clearly. Ralph Peer, who worked for Columbia, Okeh & Victor, & was present at 4 or 5 of the most seminal recording sessions of the 1920s, was also the first guy to travel around with recording equipment from city to city. He asked around for where to find people who played at home, & at the behest of Ernest Stoneman, went through the appalachian mountains, inviting folks he liked. He set up his gear in Bristol, Tennessee in 1927. Both the Carter Family & Jimmie Rodgers were among his guests, and it kicked off the entire industry of country music on 78. Tennessee fiddlers, Kentucky banjo clawmen, delta blues singers, Carolina slide players, & other men & women of constant sorrow. Tracklisting: Arthur Smith Trio-Adieu False Heart, BF Shelton-Pretty Polly, Carter Family-Will You Miss Me When I'm Gone, Mississippi John Hurt-Louise Collins, Emry Arthur-Reuben oh Reuben, Jimmie Tarlton-Lowe Bonnie, Shortbuckle Roark & Family-I Truly Understand That You Love Another Man, Clarence Ashley-Dark Holler Blues, Emry Arthur-Man of Constant Sorrow, Cackle Sisters-Why I'm Grieving, Buell Kazee-A Short Life of Trouble, Moses Mason-Molly Man, Bascom Lamar Lunsford-Lulu Wall.
Kesarbia Kerkar-S/T LP – 12 euros ( audio )
One of the greatest Indian classical vocalists of all time. KEARBIA KERKAR rose up from the bottom of the caste system in India to become one of the countries most respected vocalists.

HENDERSON, THE WHIRLWINDS, IKE GORDON, BISHOP MCDANIELS, and many more. .
