Out back is the see-ment pond, but don't go in there. It's not heated, and
some of the critters living in it get awful hungry .


Note: when you click "Add to Cart", it will bring you to a paypal page. If you want to get more stuff
(of COURSE you do!), just look on the left side. There's a gray button that says "Continue Shopping"

Upon request, all CDs will be autographed by Hitman!


Please note: due to changes in the US Postal Rates, we cannot offer international shipping - not even to Canada.
The price of the shipping is a minimum of $9.50!!! You can purchase our CDs from Amazon and CD Baby,
without paying this ridiculous cost. Hopefully, this will change.


Not My Circus, Not My Monkey

Not My Circus, Not My Monkey

Bringing Modern/Alternative Blues to a whole new level, this album has to be heard, not described. But that didn't stop Bluebird Reviews from saying "one of the most inspired Contemporary Blues records of 2021".

The World Moves On cover

The World Moves On

With seven new originals, one killer version of "Seventh Son" (done Hitman style), and five re-issues that have been remixed, remastered, and added horns, this is an album you'll want!

"The Hitman Blues Band will make you glad that music exists..." - Brian McKinnon, Senior Staff

"The Hitman Blues Band, led by Russell "Hitman" Alexander, literally conquered the listener" -

Pale Rider

Pale Rider

The fourth release from The Hitman Blues Band, featuring eleven great original blues & rock/blues songs, plus a unique cover of the Son House classic, "Death Letter".

...Strong singing, a great-sounding recording, and precision playing by the band make Pale Rider (Nerus Records) recommended listening. 
by Tom Hyslop, Blues Revue magazine

...His slide work on "Pale Rider" is a musical self - portait all by itself.
The real treasure on this CD is without a doubt, Hitmans lyrics. He is a literate and subtle lyricist. 
- Keith McKenzie, Long Island Blues Society

Live At Stonybrook

Recorded live on November 28, 2005 at the University Cafe at Stonybrook University, NY. No tricks, this is live blues at its best. Seven tunes from the first two CDs, three brand new songs, and a version of John Lee Hooker's "Boom Boom" that burned the place down!

With great performances and Hitman's inimitable way of working the crowd, you'll feel like you're in the front row!
