Check out these new and used Koko Taylor vinyl records LPs for sale. Koko Taylor was born the daughter of a sharecropper in Tennessee in 1928. She relocated to Chicago in 1952 and began singing in blues clubs in 1958. She ended up recording a single of Wang Dang Doodle, which was originally recorded by Howlin’ Wolf. There is a live version of this song from the 1967 American Folk Blues Festival which included Little Walter on harmonica. Koko became more well-known after touring the United States in the late 1960s, eventually signing with Alligator Records in 1975 after being on the Chess label for a long time. She ended up recording nine albums for Alligator, and eight of those LPs were nominated for Grammy awards. She kept touring a lot, and even performed over 70 concerts a year in her later years. Taylor passed away in 2009 at the age of 80 at her home in Chicago. We recommend starting your Koko Taylor vinyl collection with the essential Southside Baby or Queen of the Blues.
