Only 1000 copies of Tommy Bankhead and the Blues Eldorados' LP were ever pressed. Most of those were sold off the bandstand at their endless stream of gigs in the dark heart of the American Midwest. That was back in 1985. It was the last time this record was availabe. The original record has become a collector's item that sells at a premium to blues aficionados on the infrequent occasion when it shows up on a rare record auction list.

Vintage Vinyl has pressed a limited edition CD of this long unavailable gem. We're offering them on this website at a special price.
