VariousWayfaring Strangers – Guitar Soli ... LP
Numero, Mid 60s/1970s/Early 80s. New Copy 2LP .... $18.99 21.98
A wonderful collection of obscure solo acoustic guitar tunes from the mid 60s up to the dawn of the 80s – beautiful work from a slew of players we've never heard of – but we'd put right up there with Fahey and Basho in the way they reach from the back porch to the cosmos with just their fingers and some strings! One thing we love about this set, and the Numero Group releases to date, is how deep they dig and what beauty they unearth, somehow with impeccable sound quality. Some tunes are starkly beautiful, some chime on fairly intently, some do both those things and more – and it's very heartening and instantly appealing stuff – wordless tunes that carry a lot of sensitivity and emotion! The LP comes in beautiful gate fold, heavy cardboard packaging with notes on the tracks and artists printed on, plus an introduction by Numero's Rob Sevier and essays by Dan Lambert and Jim Ohlschmidt. Titles include "Beginning" by Dana Westover", "Raga In D" by Ted Lucas, "Sailor's Dream" by Scotte Witte, "Flight" by George Cromarty, "Diagonal" by Richard Crandell, "Baha Dream Songs" by Daniel Hecht, "Delta Freeze" by Jim Ohlschmidt, "No More School" by Stephen Cohen, "Strawberry Man" by Mark Lang, "Warm River" by Bread Chequer, "One Forty Eight" by Swayne Canna and more.

Anne BriggsTime Has Come ... CD
CBS/Columbia, 1971. Used .... $8.99
A masterpiece of fragile, intimate folk songcraft from Brit folk legend Anne Briggs – her second of only a couple albums – and really about as good as any post 60s stripped down folk efforts we can think of! Anne penned most of the songs and plays guitar and bouzouki solo, given the work an intimacy and directness that's just the way it should be – and the contemporary songs are timelessly beautiful. Wonderful! Titles include "Sandman's Song", "Hight Lodge Hare", "Fire And Wine","Step Right Up", "Ride, Ride", "Clea Caught A Rabbit", "Tangled Man", "Wishing Well", "Standing On The Shore", "Everytime", "Fine Horseman" and more.

Johnny CashOrange Blossom Special (remastered edition with bonus tracks) ... CD
Columbia/Legacy, 1965. New Copy .... $5.99
Another one of the greatest mid 60s Columbia albums by Cash, with a proper CD release! Orange Blossom Special is probably the most successful of Johnny's LPs in which he balances the profound influence of Bob Dylan with his own rough hewn style for something wholly unique. Cash covers 3 of Dylan's tunes on Orange Blossom, "It Ain't Me Babe", "Mama, You've Been On My Mind", and "Don't Think Twice, It's Alright". Other tracks include "You Wild Colorado", "When It's Springtime In Alaska", "Amen", and "Danny Boy". This remastered set includes 3 bonus tracks that were never issued in the US, but can (and should!) also be found on Bear Family's amazing Man In Black: 1963-1969 box set. Those include "Engine 143", "(I'm Proud) The Baby Is Mine", and another version of "Mama, You've Been On My Mind", this one featuring Mariachi horns in the tradition of "Ring Of Fire". CD

Merle HaggardOkie From Muskogee – Live (2CD version – with Fightin' Side Of Me) ... CD
Capitol, 1969. New Copy 2CD .... $19.99 21.98
An amazing live document of Hag at his late 60s best! Recorded in – you guessed it – Muskogee, OK in 1969, this excellent 45th Anniversary edition also includes the nearly as great, comparably rare follow-up live album Fightin' Side Of Me, recorded in Philly in 1970. If you've seen Merle Haggard live over the years, you might have gotten the picture that "Okie" is more of a satire of conservatism than an indictment of hippies – but it's powerful anyway – and the album also includes great live versions of a bunch of his best ever songs, including "Mama Tried", "No Hard Times", "In the Arms Of Love", "If I Had Left It Up To You", "White Line Fever", "Blue Rock", "Okie From Muskogee", and a medley of "Swinging Doors", "I'm A Lonesome Fugitive", "Sing Me Back Home", and "Branded Man". Fighting Side Of Me is best known for the reactionary title tune, quite unfortunately, since it's a really amazing document of Haggard and the Strangers at their all time best. Like most of Merle's live shows throughout the years, it's bookended by some great original tunes like "I Take A Lot Of Pride In What I Am" and "Today I Started Loving You Again", plus a travelogue of 20th Century country music – from the spare sadness of Jimmie Rodgers's "T.B. Blues" to the Western swing of "Corrine, Corrina", to Tommy Collins's "When Did Right Become Wrong", Johnny Cash's "Orange Blossom Special", Hank Snow's "I'm Moving On" and well beyond. All of which is to say it's one of the best live country albums ever recorded for a major label! CD

Goldie HillDon't Send Me No More Roses ... CD
Righteous (UK), 1950s. New Copy .... $6.99
Some of the best early heartbreaking country numbers you're likely to hear – the hugely underappreciated earlier records cut by singer Goldie Hill in the 50s – work the influenced some of the very best female honky tonk singers of 50s, 60s & 70s – but Goldie still doesn't get the credit she deserves for it! The tunes are full of heartbreak and sadness, par for the course for the much of the post Hank Williams singers of the scene, but it's done her with a sweet tenderness, and a perceptive truthfulness in her tone – it's impossible to imagine Loretta Lynn doing what she did in the 60s & 70s if Goldie didn't get there first! Titles include "Call Off The Wedding", "Don't Send No More Roses", "Waiting For A Letter", "I'm The Loneliest Gal In Town", "Fickle Heart", "Why Talk To My Heart", "I'm Yesterday's Girl", "Miss You So", "Please Don't Betray Me", "Young At Heart", "Say Big Boy", "Treat Me Kind" and "Why Don't You Let Me".
