Don Rich & The BuckaroosThat Fiddlin Man (with bonus tracks) ... CD
Capitol/Omnivore, 1971. Used ... $4.99
Lead Buckaroo Don Rich steps out front for this great early 70s compilation of fiddle-led instros! That Fiddlin Man is a relative rarity in the Buckaroos canon, but it's a terrific record – featuring instrumentals that found their way onto other hard-to-find Buck Owens And His Buckaroos LPs over the years, but absolutely deserved (and still deserve) a spotlight showcase long player of their own. The tight Bakersfield Sound backdrop is in full effect, but it's Don's bright, energetic fiddle that leads the way instead of his own electric guitar or Buck's voice. It's also heavy with Don Rich originals, including "Pretty Girl Hoedown", "Louisiana Waltz", "Dublin Waltz" and "Tumwater Breakdown" – plus a nice take on "Orange Blossom Special" and more. This excellent version on Omnivore doubles the original tracklist – with 10 bonus tracks similarly compiled from hard-to-find 60s records. 20 tracks in all! CD

New Merle HaggardSame Train – A Different Time (plus bonus tracks) ... CD
Capitol/Bear Family (Germany), 1969. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Merle Haggard's affectionate 1969 tribute to the genius of Jimmie Rodgers. For all of his rough, outlaw ways and reactionary moods – particularly in the immediate years after Okie from Muskogee – Merle was also deeply sensitive and respectful of his influences. His voice was never sweeter than on this CD of Rodgers tunes – despite the fact the Merle's genius pen didn't write any of the tunes here, this may still be his masterpiece. All of the songs and narration tracks from the original LP are here – 29 in all. CD

New Hank ThompsonSongs For Rounders/At The Golden Nugget ... CD
Capitol/Omni (Australia), 1959/1961. New Copy ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
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.

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
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

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!

Speedy West & Jimmy BryantFlaming Guitars (4 CD Box Set, Book) ... CD
Bear Family (Germany), 1950s. New Copy 4 CDs, Book ... Early August, 2014
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
