1989 - Dynasty (1996 Reissue)
Carey Bell at the Long Beach Blues Festival, 2003
Carey Bell (November 14, 1936 – May 6, 2007) was an American blues musician who played harmonica in the Chicago blues style. Bell played harmonica and bass guitar for other blues musicians in the late 1950s, 1960s and early 1970s before embarking on a solo career. Besides his own albums, he recorded as an accompanist or duo artist with Earl Hooker, Robert Nighthawk, Lowell Fulson, Eddie Taylor, Louisiana Red, Jimmy Dawkins as well as a frequent partner with his son, guitarist Lurrie Bell. Blues Revue called Bell "one of Chicago’s finest harpists." The Chicago Tribune said Bell is "a terrific talent in the tradition of Sonny Boy Williamson and Little Walter.

Format: CD, Album, Reissue
Release Date: 1989 (October 1, 1996)
Label: JSP Records
Catalog #: JSPCD 222
Genre: Chicago Blues, Harmonica Blues
An acknowledged classic this Chicago studio set is now remastered. This is Chicago blues harmonica and guitar at its best. The JSP sessions are acknowledged as the best that Carey & Lurrie Bell cut and this one finds them together with three other Carey Bell sons on harmonica, bass and drums. This is superb Chicago blues of the classic style but it also has a 1980's funkiness added from the rhythm section (James & Tyson Bell who were still teenagers then?).
