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.

VariousWayfaring Strangers – Guitar Soli ... CD
Numero, Mid 60s/1970s/Early 80s. New Copy ... $15.99 18.98
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 40 page booklet features detailed notes and bio material for each track, 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.

New Merle HaggardTribute to the Best Damn Fiddle Player in the World ... LP
Capitol, Early 70s. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
This album is Merle Haggard's tribute to Bob Wills, the king of Western Swing. There are several of Wills own songs included in the track list and others that are simply in the Western Swing vein. Some of the titles are "Right Or Wrong", "Brown Skinned Gal", "Misery", "Roly Poly", "Old Fashioned Love", and "Take Me Back To Tulsa". The Strangers sound great and as usual Hag's voice is super; he gets to do a bit of yodeling. LP, Vinyl record album

Joan BaezBlessed Are (2014 Record Store Day Release) ... LP
Vanguard, 1971. New Copy 2LP Gatefold (reissue)... $22.99
A important record from Joan Baez – one that has the singer expanding her sound, but in all the right possible ways – bringing in some Nashville elements to her folksy roots! The record features some larger backings arranged by producer Norbert Putnam – with bits of strings, The Memphis Horns, and some backup vocals – but most of a focus around the core combo of the album, which includes Charlie McCoy on harmonica, and Pete Wade and Norman Blake on guitars. Titles include "The Night They Drove Old Dixie Down", "Three Horses", "Last Lonely & Wretched", "Lincoln Freed Me Today", "Gabriel & Me", and "Fifteen Months". LP, Vinyl record album

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

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".

George JonesGrand Ole Opry's Newest Star (with download) ... LP
Starday/Reserve, 1957. New Copy (reissue)... $16.99 19.98
A really early record by a young, fresh-faced George Jones – his full length debut, actually – released in 1957 by Starday, not too long after his debut appearance at the Grand Ole Opry! George had been recording some artistically promising, if underselling singles for a couple years prior, including the now legendary rockabilly sides (on which he was billed as "Thumper" Jones), but this was his first full length showcase as a rising country singer. The title is pure showbiz, as George wouldn't be a big star for a couple more years. He was ready, though! The songs are great, and he wrote or co-wrote most of 'em – and oh man, that VOICE – this is where the legend begins, people! Includes the early classic "Why, Baby, Why", and a whole bunch of great tunes, including "You Gotta Be My Baby", "Ragged But Right", "It's OK", "Still Hurtin'", "Boat Of Life", "Let Him Know", "Play It Cool" and more. LP, Vinyl record album

John KoernerSpider Blues ... LP
Elektra, 1965. Good+ ... $13.99
Mid 60s bluesy folk on Elektra from Spider John Koerner, billed professionally as John for the solid Spider Blues! This is essential the first solo release for Spider, working on a few tracks with fellow traveler and partner in Koerner, Ray & Glover, Tony Glover on mouth harp. The spindly sound of John's 7 string guitar is pretty unique, and overall this is terrific mix of folk & blues. Titles include "Good Luck Child", "Nice Legs", "Spider Blues", "Corrina", "Delia Holmes", "Need A Woman", "Baby, Don't Come Back", "Things Ain't Right", "Rent Party Rag" and more. LP, Vinyl record album
(Heavy gold label mono pressing. Cover has some aging, light wear, small splits on the top and bottom seams, and some marker and staining on the back. Label has some marker.)
