Willie NelsonTeatro ... LP
Modern Classics, 1998. New Copy 2LP (reissue)... Summer 2014
A truly great later Willie Nelson record – revisiting some of his classics, though this time with the beautifully moody, warm and lived in production of Daniel Lanois and backing vocals by Emmylou Harris. It's among Nelson's finest full lengths ever, and among our favorite Lanois productions, too. A real masterpiece! Includes "Ou Es-Tu, Mon Amour? (Where Are You, My Love?)", "I Never Cared For You", "Darkness On The Face Of The Earth", "These Lonely Nights", "The Maker", "Somebody Picked Up My Pieces", "Three Days", "Annie" and more.

New Willie NelsonIt Will Come To Pass – The Metaphysical Worlds & Poetic Introspections Of Willie Nelson ... CD
RCA/Omni (Australia), Late 60s/Early 70s. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
Willie Nelson without the long hair – really sounding great on a set of early recordings for RCA! That amazing voice is already very firmly in place – that sharp, raspy tone that was an instant original in country music – especially when singing Nelson's own words, which really dominate this wonderful collection – a set that, as you'd guess from the title, really highlights Willie's more contemplative nature! The whole thing's wonderfully free from any overdone country music cliches – and is a great document of this under-reissued side of Nelson's catalog – the roots that led to the superstardom of the 70s, but with a much more personal, heartfelt quality too. CD features 28 tracks in all – and titles include "Healing Hands Of Time", "Suffer In Silence", "Truth Number One", "Jimmy's Road", "Pages", "Little Things", "Blackjack County Chain", "Me & Paul", "These Are Difficult Times Remember The Good Times", "Born To Lose", "The Ghost", and "Darkness On The Face Of The Earth".

Herbie MannLatin Mann – Afro To Bossa To Blues ... LP
Columbia, 1965. Very Good+ ... $6.99
An excellent album of Latin material from Herbie Mann – and proof that he's equally great in just about any setting! The album's a rare Columbia Records outing from Herbie – but it's easily one of his greatest of the 60s, thanks to some really smoking arrangements from Oliver Nelson – plus an all-star cast of players that includes Carmell Jones, Dave Pike, Jimmy Heath, Patato Valdez, Willie Bobo, Charlie Palmieri, and a young Chick Corea on piano! Tracks are short, tight, and very rhythmic – grooving in a snapping approach to Latin that's filled with plenty of soul, but which also features plenty of jazzy touches as well. A few tunes here are familiar, but they're given wonderful new treatment by Herbie and Nelson – and the record easily beats most Verve or Impulse sessions of this type at their own game! Tracks include "Bijou", "Ave Maria Morena", "Watermelon Man", "Interlude", "Let's Boom Chitty Boom", "Senor Blues", "Jungle Fantasy", and "Jive Samba". LP, Vinyl record album

VariousCosmic Country ... CD
Warner (Australia), Late 60s/Early 70s. New Copy 2CD ... $23.99
Not the kind of country music you'd hear from the mainstream of Nashville, and instead a really cool collection of underground work from a variety of US scenes at the end of the 60s – most with the kind of trippy currents you'd expect from the "cosmic" in the title! Lots of the work here shows the breaking influence of country on the LA scene, but other tracks also show the trippier influences of that scene on the south as well – especially the spots where longer hair and headier attitudes were not only tolerated, but encouraged in the process of making music! The set's a really unique approach to this period, and draws together so many different strands we wouldn't have thought of – creating a rich tapestry of sounds that includes "Sam Stone" by John Prine, "Catch The Wind" by Vern Gosdin, "Close The Door Lightly" by The Dillards, "Dance Dance Dance" by Crazy Horse, "Deep Water" by Beau Brummels, "Cowboy Movie" by David Crosby, "I Wonder If I Care As Much" by The Everly Brothers, "Truck Stop Girl" by Little Feat, "From A Silver Phial" by Gene Clark, "Some Of Shelly's Blues" by The Monkees, "Wallflower" by Doug Sahm, "Do Right Woman Do Right Man" by Delaney & Bonnie, "$1000 Wedding" by Gram Parsons, "Jesus In 3/4 Time" by John David Souther, and "Pretend I Never Happened" by Willie Nelson. 2CD set features 38 tracks in all!

VariousCountry Funk Vol 2 – 1967 to 1974 ... LP
Light In The Attic, Late 60s/Early 70s. New Copy 2LP Gatefold ... $22.99 24.98
A great criss-crossing of modes at the end of the 60s – music that has roots in country, but which comes off with plenty of funk and soul as well – in styles that were burning strong from LA on eastward, all the way across the south at the time! Some of the grooves here might fall into the "swamp rock" mode of the time – while others showcase hip LA artists mixing rootsy elements with tighter studio production – and a few more have genre-crossing country artists trying on some more soulful modes for good measure. The range of work is really great – and quite surprising, too – and the whole thing's got a great look that really illuminates the music within. Titles include "Northeast Texas Women" by Willis Allan Ramsey, "Nobody" by Larry Williams & Johnny Watson, "Collection Box" by Thomas Jefferson Kaye, "Me & Mr Hohner" by Bobby Darin, "Hunger Child Blues" by Townes Van Zant, "California Women" by Hoyt Axton, "Pay Day Give Away" by Bill Wilson, "Shotgun Willie" by Willie Nelson, "Cajun Moon" by JJ Cale, "Sumpin Funky Going On" by Donnie Fritts, and "Don't Let Me Down" by Dillard & Clark.

VariousHeavy Soul ... CD
Warner (Australia), Early 70s. New Copy 2CD ... $23.99
Heavy soul, but not just from soul artists – and instead a really great range of tracks that includes work from rootsy rockers and country musicians as well! The package traces the strong influence of soul music on so many different styles at the start of the 70s – bits of funk borrowed in the rhythms, slices of politics used in the lyrics, and modes of singing that were a lot more expressive and unbridled than before – especially for some of the key artists in the set! A few crossover soul cuts mix nicely with material from a whole host of different scenes – all surprisingly united in style, thanks to a good emphasis on funky rock elements at the core. The package is another wonderful entry from this excellent Warner Australia series – and titles include "They Caught The Devil" by Tony Joe White, "They Call It Rock & Roll Music" by Delaney & Bonnie with King Curtis, "Lord Have Mercy On My Soul" by Black Oak Arkansas, "We Had It All" by Donnie Fritts, "Born To Be Wild" by Wilson Pickett, "Right Place Wrong Time" by Dr John, "On Your Way Down" by Allen Toussaint, "Sure As Sin" by Jeanie Greene, "Cry Like A Baby" by Cher, "Anna Karina" by Jackie Deshannon, "Shotgun Willie" by Willie Nelson, "Dixie Fried" by James Luther Dickinson, "I Found A Love" by Lonnie Mack, "15 Degrees" by Sam Samudio, and "Going Back To Luka" by Don Nix. 2CD set features 37 tracks in all.

VariousUnchained Melody – I Hunger For Your Touch ... CD
Bear Family (Germany), 1960s. New Copy ... $18.99
One of the greatest love songs of the 60s – served up here in a host of different versions! Unlike most compilations, which feature different tracks by different artists – this set features one single track, the great "Unchained Melody" – presented by a huge range of talents in a variety of different genres – rock, pop, country, jazz, and more – even a few instrumental numbers! The song is certainly familiar, but it's wonderful to hear it in so many different sounds and styles – and in a way, all these unusual variations make us really appreciate it a lot more than before – instead of just the same old version or two we usually hear. The package features 31 tracks in all – the original version by The Righteous Brothers – and more by Les Baxter, Elvis Presley, Willie Nelson, Todd Duncan, Chet Atkins, Al Hibbler, Roy Hamilton, Phil Phillips, Ray Coniff, Max Greger, The Dials, Gene Vincent, The Letterman, David Allan Coe, Hank Snow & Chet Atkins, Vito & The Salutations, Waylon Jennings, Matt Monroe, Frankie Vaughan, The Blackwells, and others. Great notes, too – 30 pages with details of the songs, and lots of great images! CD

Miles DavisMiles Live At The Fillmore – Miles Davis 1970 – The Bootleg Series Vol 3 (6LP set) ... LP
Columbia/Music On Vinyl (Netherlands), 1970. New Copy ... Around May 12, 2014 (delayed)
A massive moment for Miles Davis – legendary live performances at both the Fillmore East and Fillmore West from 1970 – presented here in their entirety for the first time ever! Part of the record features Miles' work that appeared in edited form on the Miles Davis At Fillmore record – but issued here without the edits, so that you can really hear the group take off in unbridled, Bitches Brew-like energy – served up by a lineup that includes Steve Grossman on tenor and soprano sax, Chick Corea on Fender Rhodes, Keith Jarrett on organ, Dave Holland on bass, Jack DeJohnette on drums, and Airto on percussion and flute. The set then also includes material recorded in April at the Fillmore West – but all unissued tracks, and not the material that was on the Black Beauty album at all. These tracks feature a similar lineup, but without Keith Jarrett – on a few long tracks. The set separates out all the tunes with great clarity and better mastering than before – and adds 100 minutes to the Fillmore East set. Titles include "Directions", "The Mask", "It's About That Time", "Bitches Brew", "Spanish Key", "Sanctuary", "I Fall In Love Too Easily", "Footprints", "Paraphernalia", "Miles Runs The Voodoo Down", "Willie Nelson", and "The Theme".

New Miles DavisBlack Beauty – Miles Davis At Fillmore West ... CD
Sony, 1970. Used 2CD ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
4 sides of noisy, funky, stretched-out playing from Miles Davis – recorded at the Fillmore West, but with an intensity that matches some of Miles' crazy electric recordings from Japan during the early 70s! The music is a powerful blast of music that stretches out over the double-length set of the package – with a style that moves from heavy-duty avant playing, then back to more mellow grooving, then kicks it out nice and hard again – a heavy dose of rock mixed in with the fusion, but still plenty jazzy throughout. In all, the record is probably one of the most heavy-duty that the Miles electric group recorded in the 70s – and the lineup on the set features Steve Grossman on saxes, Chick Corea on electric piano, Jack DeJohnette on drums, and Airto on percussion. Tracks include "Spanish Key", "Directions", "Masqualero", "It's About That Time", "I Fall In Love Too Easily", "Bitches Brew", "Willie Nelson", and "Sanctuary". CD

New Nancy WilsonHurt So Bad ... LP
Capitol, Late 60s. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A great set that continues the groovy late 60s sound of Nancy Wilson at Capitol Records – that unique blend of jazz and soul that seemed to inspire a whole host of imitations at the time! Nancy's still the best of the bunch at this sort of groove, though – and the arrangements here shift nicely between bouncy soul tracks and mature mellower ballads – handled with just the right sensitivity through charts by Jimmy Jones, Phil Wright, Billy May, and Oliver Nelson. Some of the best tracks are the ones with Phil Wright – like the covers of "Hurt So Bad", "Willie & Laura Mae Jones", and "You're All I Need To Get By" – which all really showcase the new soaring side of Wilson's talents. Yet the other work is plenty great too – definitely head and shoulders above the rest – on cuts that include a funky take on "Spinning Wheel", plus "One Soft Night", "Ages Ago", "Come Back To Me", and "Let's Make The Most Of A Beautiful Thing".

4 Men With Beards/RCA, 1975. New Copy (reissue)... Out Of Stock
The vital debut of Guy Clark – and easily one of the greatest Texa-bred country records of the mid 70s! Guy was already developing a strong pedigree as a songwriter by this point, but much like his peer Billy Joe Shaver, the personal feel of the songs come across in a deeper way, when done by the man himself. He's backed by an impeccable group of musicians, too, including Bob Wills' Texas Playboys fiddler Johnny Gimble, Willie Nelson's go-to harmonica player Mickey Raphael, and harmony vocals by Rodney Crowell, Emmylou Harris and Steve Earle. Includes "Rita Ballou", "LA Freeway", "She Ain't Goin' Nowhere", "A Nickel For The Fiddler", "That Old Time Feeling", "Texas-1947", "Desperados Waiting For The Train", "Like A Coat From The Cold", "Instant Foffee Blues" and "Let Him Roll".

A feature documentary on the life and incredible career of producer Arif Mardin – the legendary producer, composer, arranger and eventual vice-president of Atlantic Records – who was an instrumental figure behind the scenes of many of the greatest jazz, soul, pop and rock records of the past 50 years! Mardin produced SO many legendary records by SO many legendary artists, it feels a crime to list but a few – but we'll go ahead mention some of the biggest and best records by Aretha Franklin, Dusty Springfield, Willie Nelson, Chaka Khan and The Bee Gees are among them – in a career that spanned the late 50s to the mid 00s. The doc is co-produced and co-directed by Doug Bird and Arif's son Joe Mardin – with some great archival footage behind the scenes – with appearances by Quincy Jones, George Martin, Ahmet Ertugun and others.

New Nancy WilsonSon Of A Preacher Man/Hurt So Bad ... CD
Capitol/Soulmusic.com (UK), 1969. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
Two overlooked Capitol albums from Nancy Wilson – back to back on a single CD! First up is Son Of A Preacher Man – a wonderfully groovy album from Nancy Wilson – filled with hip jazzy touches and lots of bouncy soul – in that sweet blend that was a perfect fit for the style of late 60s Capitol Records! Nancy really steps out from some of her more staid modes here – swinging a groove with some bad-rapping late 60s styles, yet still also reminding us that she's a sophisticated lady on some of the record's more adult tracks too. Arrangements are by the trio of Jimmy Jones, Phil Wright, and Joe Parnello – each of whom bring a different feel to the record, and help create a strong sense of variety amongst tracks that include "Son Of A Preacher Man", "Make The World Go Away", "I Made You This Way", "Husbands & Wives", "Mr Walker It's Over", "Almost Persuaded", and "Got It Together". Hurt So Bad continues the groovy late 60s sound of Nancy Wilson at Capitol Records – that unique blend of jazz and soul that seemed to inspire a whole host of imitations at the time! Nancy's still the best of the bunch at this sort of groove, though – and the arrangements here shift nicely between bouncy soul tracks and mature mellower ballads – handled with just the right sensitivity through charts by Jimmy Jones, Phil Wright, Billy May, and Oliver Nelson.

New Neil YoungLetter Home ... LP
Third Man, 2014. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
Neil Young in gritty solo mode – as raw and real as we've heard him in years! On Letter Home he's covering some great songs that he no doubt knows by heart, singing and strumming live and direct into Jack White's refurbished 1947 Voice-O-Graph recording booth – giving it the feel of an old field recording! Neil's wavering, emotional voice, raw acoustic guitar and occasional harmonica are, at the core, are what you'd expect from Neil in folk troubadour mode, but the antique recording technology gives it an otherworldly feel that we really dig. This is one of those "not for everybody" Neil Young records, and we honestly love the freewheeling spirit of it! Jack White pitches in on Willie Nelson's "On The Road Again" and Don Everly's "I Wonder If I Care As Much" – but it's a mostly Neil alone. Other songs include "Changes", "My Hometown", "Early Morning Rain", "Crazy" and "Reason To Believe". LP, Vinyl record album

Folkways/Mississippi, 1920s/1930s/1940s. New Copy 2LP (reissue)... Out Of Stock
A landmark collection of music – the now-famous series of American Folk Music volumes put together by Harry Smith in the 50s! The work here spans the space of a few early decades of recorded music – all in styles expertly chosen by Smith, with countless examples of music that might have fallen beneath the sands of time if not otherwise included in the series! Even back at the original release of the collection, the series was a crucial bit of musical archeology – and over the ensuing space of decades, has only gone onto become even more important. Styles run the gamut from blues to roots to folk and other styles in between – and this second volume focuses on social music, with songs by Bunt Stephens, JW Day, A Hunt's Ramblers, Sister M Nelson, Sanctified Singers, Phipps Singers, Blind Willie Johnson, Breux Freres, Joseph Falcon, and many others! LP, Vinyl record album
(Really amazing package – 2 very heavy piece of vinyl, in a fabric-covered, heavy cardboard gatefold, with special booklet – even more durable than the original pressing! Limited to 2000 copies.)
