New Merle HaggardComplete 60s Capitol Singles ... CD
Capitol/Omnivore, 1960s. Used ... Out Of Stock
The complete collection of Hag's 60s singles at Capitol – with some of his most legendary songs – along with some equal treasures that just didn't hit as big on the charts! It's a pretty tightly-focused set that starts with the formative, Bakersfield honky tonk-honed style of the earlier singles and segues pretty early to his popular and creative peaks as both a performer and songwriter! That smoky smooth voice is as great as it would ever be during this period, and he really starts showing his storytelling excellence on these songs, too. To this day, Haggard doesn't get the credit he deserves for his empathetic songcraft – and many of his best songs are in this set! 28 tracks in all: "I'm Gonna Break Every Heart In Can", "Falling For You", "Swinging Doors", "The Bottle Let Me Down", "Silver Wings", "Branded Man", "Sing Me Back Home", "The Fugitive", "You'll Never Love Me Now", "If I Had Left It Up To You", "Someone Told My Story", "I Take A Lot Of Pride In What I Am", CD

Louvin BrothersSatan Is Real ... CD
Capitol, 1959. Used ... $6.99
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! CD

Louvin BrothersSatan Is Real/Handpicked Songs 1955 to 1962 ... CD
Capitol/Light In The Attic, Late 50s/Early 60s. Used 2CD ... $11.99
The soul saving, Satan deterring classic by The Louvin Brothers – plus the excellent Handpicked Songs compilation of Louvin tracks lovingly selected by an eclectic group of indebted artists – in this great 2CD set from Light In The Attic! Satan Is Real is 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! The real deal! Handpicked Songs is amazing music from the greatest chapter of the legendary Louvin Brothers – the kind of work that's made them a legend for generations! The set features Louvin classics chosen by a reverent group of singers and songwriters that really run the gamut – Dolly Parton, Beck, Kris Kristofferson, Chris Hilman, Emmylou Harris, Will Oldham, Zooey Deschanel, The Black Angels, Mark Lanegan, M Ward, and Jim James – but all artists who have been undeniably influenced by Ira and Charlie Louvin, and their way of melding melancholy harmonies into something that goes way beyond everyday country music! The packaging is great – very much up to the Light In The Attic standard – and titles include "Almost Persuaded", "My Baby's Gone", "I See A Bridge", "Knoxville Girl", "Great Atomic Power", and "Alabama".

Hank ThompsonSongs For Rounders/At The Golden Nugget ... CD
Capitol/Omni (Australia), 1959/1961. New Copy ... $16.99 19.98
Late western swing from the great Hank Thompson – a pair of Capitol Records classics, back to back in a single set! First up is Songs For Rounders – one of the best honky tonk albums of the late 50s – Hank Thompson doing as he doggone pleases, drinking to and singing for the seedy side! Hank always had a good-natured vocal presence, so you gotta figure it seemed harmless enough to have him take on some of the more ornery songs of period – the ones about roving gamblers, red light districts and otherwise raising cain. Somehow, this seemed to scare the establishment, though! Great Ken Nelson production, too! Titles include "Three Times Seven", "I'll Be A Bachelor Till I Die", "Deep Elm", "Cocaine Blues", "Bummin' Around", and "May I Sleep In Your Arms Tonight Mister?". Next is the stunning Hank Thompson At The Golden Nugget – a live album recorded at a Vegas casino, complete with some occasional sound effects from the floor! The feel is nice and spontaneous, and there's some added jazzy horns in the mix – which makes for a nice contrast with the intimate twang of Hank's guitar. Titles include "I Guess I'm Getting Over You", "Honky Tonk Girl", "She's Just A Whole Lot Like You", "Steel Guitar Rag", and "Lost Highway". CD also features bonus tracks – including "Detour", "Teach Me How To Lie", "I Don't Hurt Anymore", and "Pick Me Up On Your Way Down". CD

Jenks Tex CarmanHillbilly Hula ... CD
Bear Family (Germany), Early 50s. New Copy ... $18.99
Weird, wacky stuff that we can't help but like! Jenks Tex Carman was a strange dude who recorded for Capitol in the early 50s – singing pared down country ditties peppered with lots of mush-mouth gibberish that he claimed was Cherokee – it's NOT. He also added lots of odd Hawaiian slide guitar, hence the title. If you like the oddball stuff as much as we do, or you just want to clear the room of the in-laws or other unwanted guests, Jenks is your man! Most of his early Capitol sides are here, including "Hillbilly Hula", "Another Dream Gone Wrong", "Hilo March", "Locust Hill Rag", "Samoa Stomp", "Dixie Cannonball", "Sweet Luwanna", "Indian polka", "Don't Feel Sorry For Me", "Gonna Stay Right Here", and lots more. 20 tracks in all.

Louvin BrothersClose Harmony (8CD set) ... CD
Bear Family (Germany), Late 50s/Early 60s. New Copy 8 CDs & Book ... $163.99 175.98
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!

Merle HaggardUntamed Hawk – Early Recordings Of Merle Haggard (5 CD Box Set, Book) ... CD
Bear Family (Germany), 1960s. New Copy 5 CDs, Book ... Early August, 2014 (delayed)
Pure greatness! This set compiles all of the early work of the one and only Hag, from his early days at the indie Tally Records, through his first several years at Capitol. Pretty much everything Hag recorded up to and including Mama Tried – and not a stinker in the bunch! Includes all of the early album tracks plus singles and alternate versions, including "I Threw Away The Rose", The Bottle Let Me Down", "Mama Tried", "I'm A Lonesome Fugitive", "Green Green Grass Of Home", his absolutely perfect version of "Folsom Prison Blues" – all of the greats! Also included in the fantastic package is a huge book full of info about Hag's, let's just say, interesting personal life, recording details, tons of photos – flawless! CD

Speedy West & Jimmy BryantFlaming Guitars (4 CD Box Set, Book) ... CD
Bear Family (Germany), 1950s. New Copy 4 CDs, Book ... Early August, 2014 (delayed)
Two of the most unsung guitar heroes in the business get an excellent 4 CD compilation of their early 50s Capitol Records output – and it's about damn time these boys get their due! Speedy West is probably the greatest pedal steel innovator ever – who together with guitarist Jimmy Bryant revolutionized the country instrumental. They mutated the Western Swing of Bob Wills with the punchy chords of Django Reinhardt and the jump scene with their own furiously fast hillbilly picking styles, and prefigured rockabilly and, heck, even cow punk in the process. The entirety of their Capitol recordings is here in this handsome box, including a few earlier Western Swing tunes Bryant recorded with vocalist Corky Carpenter. Also includes a great 12-inch book, with photos, discography, and lots more – a real treat! Tracks include "Boogie Barn Dance", "Gamblin' Money", "Liberty Bell Polka", "Cracker Jack", "Yodeling Guitar", "Georgia Steel Guitar", "Bryant's Bounce", "Speedin' West", "Midnight Ramble", "This Ain't The Blues", "Blue Bonnet Rag", "Bustin' Through", and tons more! Over 100 in all. CD
