Jeannie C RileyHarper Valley PTA – The Plantation Recordings 1968 to 1970 ... CD
Plantation/Charly (UK), Late 60s. New Copy 2 CDs ... $13.99 14.99
A beautiful package loaded with all the tunes from the first handful of Jeannie C Riley albums for Plantation – including the Harper Valley PTA, Yearbooks And Yesterdays, Things Go Better With Love, Country Girl and The Generation Gap LPs – 58 tracks on 2CDs! Jeannie's crossed over into the bigtime immediately, on the strength the massive "Harper Valley PTA" single, and she recorded dozens of tracks just as righteously strong! Much like Merle Haggard didn’t set out to be country's conservative voice, Jeannie didn't set out to be one of country pop's first feminists – but there's no way to deny how hugely impactful she was on that front, and Harper Valley sounds true to this day. Cultural weight aside, it's simply a great batch of top notch country story songs, from one of the greatest voices of her time. Includes "Harper Valley PTA", "No Brass Band", "Shed Me No Tears", "Yesterday All Day Long Today", "Yearbooks And Yesterdays", "My Scrapbook", "The Girl Most Likely", "I'm Only An Woman", "A Real Woman", "Our Minnie", "The Back Side Of Dallas", "Country Girl", "I Almost Called Your Name", "Wherever You Are", "The Generation Gap", "My May", "Duty, Not Desire", "Darkness Falls", "To The Other Woman" and many more. Nice deluxe package, too, with a solid booklet of notes. CD

VariousTruck Stop Sweethearts & CB Savages – The Plantation Records Story 1968 to 1981 ... CD
Plantation/Charly (UK), Late 60s/1970s/Early 80s. New Copy 2 CDs ... $13.99 14.99
A totally great look at the unique Plantation Records label – home to some key crossover country hits at the end of the 60s, and a fair bit of wonderful novelty numbers in the decade to follow! Plantation was an imprint that came into being at a time when there was hardly a need to act like country was anything pure or natural – and instead recognized the style as a key mode of communication of the ideals of changing times and societal moods – served up in a landscape that included the highways and byways of small town America, including a fair bit of truck stops as well! The music here is a great antidote to the more familiar sounds of the Nashville stars of the time – and the package is filled with overlooked gems nestled next to some familiar Plantation hits – all in a cool book-style cover with pages of notes, and a whopping 50 tracks in all. Titles include "CB Savage" by Rod Hart, "One Night Gone" by James O'Gwynn, "A Truck Driver's Sweetheart" by Marcie Dickerson, "Just Blow In His Ear" by David Wilkins, "The Big Man" by Dee Mullins, "Color Him Father" by Linda Martell, "Groovy Grubworm" by Harlow Wilcox & The Oakies, "Country Girl" by Jeannie C Riley, "Dallas" by The Flatlanders, "Sweetheart" by Sandy Cooper, and "Border City Call Girl" by Ben Davidson Hewitt.

Linda MartellColor Me Country ... CD
Plantation/Real Gone, 1970. New Copy ... $12.99 13.98
The one and only album from Linda Martell – one of the first African-American women to dip into the genre of country music! The album's got a pretty straight country feel overall – none of the country soul you might hear from deep soul singers of the time – or those later modes that artists like Millie Jackson picked up in the 70s. But the set was also recorded as part of the SSS International family of labels headed by Shelby Singleton – who also cut a fair bit of soul music at the time – often blending modes, musicians, and songs on the Nashville scene of the time. The best example of that approach here is Linda's excellent remake of "Color Him Father" – first made famous by The Winstons – done as a sweet-stepping number with a very different feel than the original. Other tracks include "The Wedding Cake", "Before The Next Teardrop Falls", "Old Letter Song", and "Tender Leaves Of Love". CD
