New Karen Dalton1966 (plus download) ... LP
Delmore, 1966. New Copy ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
The third in a series of unearthed archival release of treasures by 60s folk singer, guitarist and banjo player Karen Dalton from Delmore Recordings – and it's also the third completely beautiful and revelatory Karen Dalton release from Delmore Recordings! For years, Dalton was best known by her peers in the early 60s folk community, particularly the Greenwich Village scene, where she was beloved by Dylan and other soon-to-be giants. Thanks in no small part to the great stuff brought to light by Delmore and the stellar Light In The Attic reissues, she's finally getting an audience beyond pivotal fellow musicians, which is truly thrilling. 1966 features songs recorded that year in her cabin in Summerville, Colorado – between the Green Rocky Road recordings of a few years earlier and the recordings that would make up her first official album, which wouldn't be released until '69. She's sometimes accompanied by Richard Tucker on guitar and vocal duets. Karen was infamously self-conscious on stage and in the studio, so these informal home recordings find her at her intimate, soulful best. Includes one the best versions of Tim Hardin's "Reason To Believe" we've ever heard, plus "Katie Cruel", "Cotton Eyed Joe", "Green Rocky Road", "God Bless The Childen", "Other Side To This Life", "Don't Make Promises", "Mole In The Ground", "Misery Blues", "Little Bit Of Rain" and more. Also includes excellent notes by Ben Edmonds. LP, Vinyl record album
(Vinyl version includes and 8" X 10" color portrait plus a code for digital download.)

New One Of YouOne Of You ... LP
Mississippi/Little Axe, Early 80s. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
Really compelling work from One Of You – a female singer from the Czech Republic who fled in 1968 – then emerged as a recording artist in the US during the big indie wave in the early 80s! The music here is unlike anything else we've ever heard before – spare, sad-tinged songs sung with mostly just spare keyboard backing – but with a melancholy vibe that seems to reach far back into Eastern European tradition – then refine the whole thing for a post-punk generation. Most numbers are very simple, with hypnotic use of rough language – some in English, some in Czech. Titles include "Riddle", "Waiting For Your Return", "Life Is Hard", "Faded Flowers", "Don't Be Desperate", "Cow Song", and "Life Is A Puddle". LP, Vinyl record album
(Limited to 500 copies – with a booklet of notes, and a nice heavy cover!)
