New Delmark Blues Releases - On Sale Now


Dave Weld & The Imperial Flames
Slip Into A Dream
Delmark DE 842

In a review of Weld's first Delmark CD, Living Blues magazine said: "Burnin' Love is a raucous monster...Weld performs wonderfully wild guitar...their sweet vocal harmonies are as animated as Weld's wicked and rockin' slide guitar. (Monica's) "Talk Dirty" is equally suited for a sultry blues Myhre displays her burly pipes." The songwriting team of Weld/Myhre has reached new heights with the sublime title track, the self-described "Sweet Rockin' Soul" and the crossover "Sweet Love (Dulce Amor)". Other new songs include "Looking For A Man", "May Be Right May Be Wrong" and "Tremble". With special guests Bobby Rush adding harp on 2 songs, Greg Guy (son of Buddy Guy) on guitar on one and Sax Gordon on tenor and baritone sax.

Jimmy Burns
It Ain't Right

Delmark DE 841

A walk in the Delta with sanctified swagger, It Ain't Right is a joyous culmination and testimonial to Jimmy's vocal talent and musical gifts. Relevant and inspiring, these songs are loaded with a great sense of collective purpose. Other musicians may cover a tune, but his clear and soulful message and individual approach make any song directly his own, and Jimmy Burns our musical treasure. Jimmy is accompanied by his working band Anthony Palmer, guitar; Greg McDaniel, bass: Bryant "T" Parker, drums; with additional support from Sumito "Ariyo" Ariyoshi, piano; Roosevelt Purifoy, organ; Marques Carroll, trumpet; Chris Neal, tenor sax; Aaron Getsug, baritone sax. 15 songs include two new originals by Billy Flynn. Produced by Dick Shurman.





Omar Coleman
Born And Raised
Delmark DE 840

The music of Omar Coleman, like Chicago itself, contains multitudes. Rooted in the blues, spiked with R&B urgency, and resonant with deep-soul passion, it both moves the heart and galvanizes the feet --"grown folks' music," as they say, but abrim with the enthusiasm, fire, and dedication of a young man making his mark on the world. The stories his songs tell are drawn from real life, rich with affirming humanity. Fourteen original songs, most either written or co-written by Omar, include "I Was A Fool" and "Wishing Well" with guest Mile Wheeler, "Man Like Me" and "You've Got A Hold On Me" with guest Toronzo Cannon, "Tell Me What You Want" and "Slow Down Baby" with guest Dave Herrero, "One Request", "Sit Down Baby" and "Very Lucky Man".

J.B. Hutto & His Hawks w/ Sunnyland Slim
Hawk Squat
Delmark DE 617
"The raw-as-an-open-wound Chicago slide guitarist J.B. Hutto outdid himself throughout an outrageously raucous album anchored by an impossible-to-ignore 'Hip Shakin', the blaring title cut, and savage renditions of '20% Alcohol' and 'Notoriety Woman'." -Bill Dahl, The rough & roudy blues heard at Turner's Lounge was the inspiration for this explosive 1968 recording. Blues legend Sunnyland Slim guests with The Hawks on piano and organ. This Digipak Deluxe Edition contains the previously unissued song "I'll Cry Tomorrow", alternate takes of "Hawk Squat", "Too Much Pride", "Same Mistake Twice", two alternates of "Speak My Mind" and a 16-page booklet with many never-before-seen photos from the recording sessions and Turner's.
