New Carolina Chocolate DropsGenuine Negro Jig ... CD
Nonesuch, 2010. Used ... $8.99
Neo traditional back porch string band tunes from The Carolina Chocolate Drops – and a set that goes far deeper than simple rural sounds of yore – weaving in bits of old school Americana, blues, pared down western swing, old timey jazz and more with contemporary awareness! The trio makes the most use from their traded vocals, fiddle, banjo and spar and gritty percussion (hand claps, foot stomps, a bass drum), they're one of the few modern combos trading in antique modes with still sounding fresh and relevant – under producer Joe Henry, who has an imeccable ear for the best of this kind of music. Titles include "Peace Behind The Bridge", "Trouble In Your Mind", "You Baby Ain't Sweet Like Mine", "Hit 'Em Up Style", "Cornbread And Butterbeans", "Snowden's Jig (Genuine Negro Jig), "Cindy Gal", "Sandy Boys", "Trampled Rose" and more.

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

VariousShot In The Dark – Tennessee Jive (8 CD Box Set, Book) ... CD
Bear Family (Germany), Mid 40s/Mid 50s. New Copy ... Mid-August, 2014 (delayed)
An amazing 8 CD box of Nashville's greatest indie country of the 40s and 50s, and part of Bear Family's most ambitious project ever! Along with the companion set Nashville Jumps, which covers the soul side of the era, the Shot In The Dark boxes capture the sadly almost forgotten treasures from labels like Bullet, Tennessee, Republic and others. Tennessee Jive features some of the best honky tonk, bluegrass, Western swing and hillbilly jazz jumps that you've never heard, and features early work from people like Pee Wee King & Minnie Pearl – who had nothing to show at this early point but great work and a driving passion that they sorely lacked during their later years as caricatures – plus great lesser-knowns like Zeb Turner, Jimmie Work, Del Wood, Lattie Moore and scores of others. Also includes an amazing 272 page hardbound book that you'll have to see to believe – the kind of richly written and illustrated coffee table culture bible that goes for tons of money in the bookstores without all the great music! 7 CDs with around 100 tunes, plus a bonus interview disc. Includes "Lost Highway" by Leon Payne, "I Needed You" by Johnnie Lee Wills And His Boys, "Station Door Blues" by George Lee, "Tired Of Your Lies" by Mississippi Slim, "No Money" by Carl Runner, "Magic Girl" by Tommy Smith, "CNR Special" by The McCormick Brothers, and "Row Number Two, Seat Number Three" by Wilma Lee & Stony Cooper, just to name a few!
