Blues Obscurities Vol. 1 - 10

With a lot of help from friends and searching through blogs, torrents,newsgroups, defying trojans, virussen and pornosites for missing tracks. I'm glad to offer you the complete 10 volume Blues Obscurities LP's as they were released in 1971. As the some of the LP's are old rips and tracks have been pulled from various sources you'll just have to accept the varying quality and bitrates as part of the charm of this upload.
For those of you who like tagging .... I've left that fun for you to do.
Track listing and an excellent article on English limited editions from the 60's and early 70's can be found at http://www.wirz.de/music/blobsfrm.htm

Thanks so much for this! I did decide to tag it... but I notice in the link you provided, Vol. 1 is supposed to have 14 tracks. Is yours from a different version...? Again... your generosity in sharing this great set is truly appreciated.

Finavarra, the first 3 lps where later re-released on the London label and the 1st volume had 2 extra tracks to the original release. I 've kept to the original track listing of the original releases.

Many thanks - I have the old London Dark Muddy Bottom LP, but the remainder of the series just downloaded should keep me out of trouble for a good many hours to come. Excellent! You are a gent, sir.

Just passing by to say "thanks!" ---there's a lot of very obscure records on your site, notably compilations that I never heard of!

I downloaded these rather unique albums when they were posted earlier. But being one of those "freaky people" who like to retag their downloads to their personal preferences, I noted that the artwork was not very uniform (i.e., no all the same). But examining the greater portion of the covers provided, I realized that I had used a very similar typeface for an earlier project. Not the same as the original but very, very close. So I made a set of my own "covers" using the information and somewhat the format.

If you are interested in copies they are here [only 523kb]:
