Johnny CashJohnny Cash At San Quentin – Complete 1969 Concert (2CD/DVD) ... CD
Columbia/Legacy, 1969. Used ... $13.99
Johnny returns to prison for another incredible set, released in its entirety for the first time with the 9 songs left off of the original LP! Like the Folsom gig, the set was captured by producer Bob Johnston, who also so masterfully recorded Bob Dylan at his most primal. Unlike the Folsom set, in which Johnny was famously accompanied by the Tennessee Three, the San Quentin band was fleshed out to include all of the still performing Carter women, Carl Perkins and the Statler Brothers. Another breathtaking prison recording, featuring the famous version of "A Boy Named Sue" where you hear the crowd going completely nuts. Tracks include "I Walk The Line", "Darlin' Companion", "San Quentin", "Wanted Man", "There'll Be Peace In The Valley", "Ring Of Fire", "He Turned The Water Into Wine", "Daddy Sang Bass", "I Don't Know Where I'm Bound" and more. 31 tracks in all, with lots of previously unreleased photos and essays, including some insight from Merle Haggard – who had, uh, his own little gig at San Quentin if you catch my meaning. Also features a DVD documentary on the show. CD

Louvin BrothersSatan Is Real (180 gram vinyl) ... LP
Capitol/Light In The Attic, 1959. New Copy Gatefold (reissue)... $18.99
A fantastic record of country harmony spirituals, cut by the legendary Ira and Charlie Louvin, during the height of their years at Capitol! The record's a treasure all the way through – from great cuts like "Satan is Real", "The Drunkard's Room", and "Dying From Home, And Lost" – to the groovy cover that has the Louvins standing next to a flaming pile of garbage with a statue of Satan! Forget all that modern insurgent country bullcracky – this is the real deal! LP, Vinyl record album
(Very nicely done reissue from Light In The Attic – 180 gram vinyl in a heavy-duty gatefold.)

VariousHarry Smith's Anthology Of American Folk Music Volume 4 – Rhythmic Changes (200 gram vinyl) ... LP
Folkways/Mississippi, 1920s/1930s/1940s. New Copy 2LP (reissue)... $34.99
A landmark collection of music – the now-famous series of American Folk Music volumes put together by Harry Smith in the 50s! The work here spans the space of a few early decades of recorded music – all in styles expertly chosen by Smith, with countless examples of music that might have fallen beneath the sands of time if not otherwise included in the series! Even back at the original release of the collection, the series was a crucial bit of musical archeology – and over the ensuing space of decades, has only gone onto become even more important. This 4th volume was never issued in the 50s – but finally saw the light of day as a collection in 2000 – still from older rare records, and still very much in the best spirit of the initial volumes. Styles run the gamut from blues to roots to folk and other styles in between – and this fourth volume features work by Jesse James, Monroe Brothers, Sister Clara Hudmon, Al Hopkins & The Buckle Busters, Uncle Dave Macon, Roosevelt Graves, The Carter Family, Arthur Smith Trio, Blue Sky Boys, Memphis Jug Band, and many others! LP, Vinyl record album
(Really amazing package – 2 very heavy piece of vinyl, in a fabric-covered, heavy cardboard gatefold – even more durable than the original pressing! Limited to 2000 copies.)

Louvin BrothersClose Harmony (8CD set) ... CD
Bear Family (Germany), Late 50s/Early 60s. New Copy 8 CDs, Book ... Mid-August, 2014
Whoa! An incredible, gargantuan 8 CD box set of the Louvin Brothers complete catalog for the Capitol, Apollo, Decca, and MGM labels in the late 50s and early 60s! Ira and Charlie are probably the greatest country harmony duo of all time – and the set is way too huge to even think about soaking up in a single sitting – but it's an essential slice of history for the completists out there, and thanks to Bear Family many of these tracks that might have disappeared forever live on thanks to the magic of CD! 220 songs – including tons of alternate versions from throughout the years, many of which still have the crackly quality you have on a lot of Folkways recordings – the kind that only contribute to the sincerity of the recordings rather than standing out as a flaw. The box also includes a massive book, with rare photos, a montage of all the original album cover art, a complete list of tracks recorded by other artists, and everything you need to know about the boys and their lives at the time! A small sample of what you'll find here – "Alabama", "Seven Year Blues", "Weapon Of Prayer", "Robe Of White", "Great Atomic Power", "Broadminded", "Satan And The Saint", "I Can't Say No", "Pitfall", "In The Pines", "Kentucky", "Katy Dear", "We Could", "Tennessee Waltz", "Dog Sled", "Blue", The Drunkard's Doom", and a couple hundred more!

Stanley BrothersStanley Brothers & The Clinch Mountain Clan ... CD
Bear Family (Germany), 1950s. New Copy 2CD ... Mid-August, 2014
Clinch Mountain bluegrass harmony at it's absolute finest! Ralph and Carter Stanley always felt that they recorded their best tracks for Mercury, a fair assessment by any stretch, and nearly 50 of those tracks are compiled here on two CDs, spanning the 50s and early 60s. Trust us, put the Grammy winning soundtrack away and head on up the mountain – Clinch Mountain that is. You'll be happy you made the trip. Tracks include "(Say) Won't You Be Mine", "This Weary Heart you Stole Away", "I'm Lonesome Without You", "Poison Lies", "Blue Moon OF Kentucky", "Baby Girl", "I Worship You", "Calling From Heaven", "Tragic Love", "I'd Rather Be Forgotten", "Orange Blossom Special", "No School Bus In Heaven", "If That's The Way you Feel", "A Lonesome Night", "Loving You Too Well", "Meet Me In Heaven" and soooo much more!

Stanley BrothersStanley Brothers – 1949-1952 ... CD
Bear Family (Germany), Late 40s/Early 50s. New Copy ... Mid-August, 2014
More timeless, traditional, beautiful bluegrass ballads of love and lament from the Stanley Brothers – including the best version of "I'm A Man Of Constant Sorrow" you'll ever hear! These earlier Stanley recordings from the late 40s and early 50s have some strains of tradition blues, rags, and spirituals – and kind of came at the the tail end of the world Harry Smith would soon later shine a brilliant light on. 24 tracks in the set including "A Vision Of Mother", "The White Dove", "Little Glass Of Wine", "We'll Be Sweethearts In Heaven", "I Love No One But You", "The Fields Have Turned Brown", "Hey! Hey! Hey!", "The Wandering Boy", "Let's Part The Best Of Friends", "Too Late To Cry", "Pretty Polly", "The Old Home" and much more. CD

VariousShot In The Dark – Tennessee Jive (8 CD Box Set, Book) ... CD
Bear Family (Germany), Mid 40s/Mid 50s. New Copy ... Mid-August, 2014
An amazing 8 CD box of Nashville's greatest indie country of the 40s and 50s, and part of Bear Family's most ambitious project ever! Along with the companion set Nashville Jumps, which covers the soul side of the era, the Shot In The Dark boxes capture the sadly almost forgotten treasures from labels like Bullet, Tennessee, Republic and others. Tennessee Jive features some of the best honky tonk, bluegrass, Western swing and hillbilly jazz jumps that you've never heard, and features early work from people like Pee Wee King & Minnie Pearl – who had nothing to show at this early point but great work and a driving passion that they sorely lacked during their later years as caricatures – plus great lesser-knowns like Zeb Turner, Jimmie Work, Del Wood, Lattie Moore and scores of others. Also includes an amazing 272 page hardbound book that you'll have to see to believe – the kind of richly written and illustrated coffee table culture bible that goes for tons of money in the bookstores without all the great music! 7 CDs with around 100 tunes, plus a bonus interview disc. Includes "Lost Highway" by Leon Payne, "I Needed You" by Johnnie Lee Wills And His Boys, "Station Door Blues" by George Lee, "Tired Of Your Lies" by Mississippi Slim, "No Money" by Carl Runner, "Magic Girl" by Tommy Smith, "CNR Special" by The McCormick Brothers, and "Row Number Two, Seat Number Three" by Wilma Lee & Stony Cooper, just to name a few!
