LP, Vinyl record album
Folkways/Mississippi, 1920s/1930s/1940s. New Copy 2LP (reissue)
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 ... LP, Vinyl record album
Numero, Mid 60s/1970s/Early 80s. New Copy
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 ... CD
Land Of Lo Fi
Mississippi, 2013. New Copy
Michael Hurley in the land of lo fi – a perfect place for his intensely personal music, served up here on one of his best records in years! The setting is that spare Hurley mode of vocals and guitar – with maybe some other odd elements here and there, maybe a bit of percussion or ... LP, Vinyl record album

CD
IV (Intravenous)
Delmore, 2012. Used
Beautiful stuff from singer Diana Darby – one of our favorite voices in the indie folk landscape! There's a hushed tone to Diana's voice that softens some fairly heavy lyricism – on personal songs that manage to speak the plain, sometimes harsh truths of love and spirituality with a ... CD
Omni (Australia), 1975/1976. Used
A pair of mid 70s album by Bobby Bare – the ambitious, concept-driven Hard Time Hungrys – and the easygoing The Winners & Other Losers – two worthy efforts from one the most unique voices and personalities of his era! Both albums are heavy with songs written by Bare family ... CD
Rhino, 1940s/1950s. Used
Classic work from the singing cowboy – with a beautiful full color book! ... CD
Omnivore, Early/Mid 70s. Used
Classic-level Buck Owens covers of honky tonk standards – recorded at his own Bakersfield studio in the early-to-mid 70s to be ready to use on the Hee Haw show – but never released before this excellent compilation on Omnivore! The show was famous for trotting out both contemporary and ... CD
Vanguard (UK), 1963/1964. Used
Beautiful work from Hedy West – a folk singer with a voice that cuts through to the quick – none of the sweetness of some of the poppier acts of the 60s, and none of the softness that you might get from commercial efforts – and instead a sound that's straight from the hills, and a ... CD
Columbia, 1981/1984. New Copy 2LP
A surprisingly strong set of previously unreleased Johnny Cash – recorded with producer Billy Sherrill, mostly in 1984, but with a couple sessions from '81 – and it's honestly as great, and a heck of a lot better than a bunch of Johnny's music that actually DID see commercial release ... LP, Vinyl record album
Rev-Ola (UK), 1971. New Copy
Sublimely orchestrated pop from the duo of Chuck & Mary Perrin – a rich blend of strings and folk guitar, done in a way that carries echoes of contemporary work from Nick Drake or Leonard Cohen. The style's a bit sweeter here than either Cohen or Drake – given the harmonizing that ... CD

Little Heater
Thrill Jockey, 2012. Used
The first solo album from folk-country singer and songwriter Catherine Irwin in a decade – and as much as we wish she'd put one out every year, we'll take what we can get – especially if the occasional record is as moving and beautiful as Little Heater! If you don't know this already, ... CD

Voice Of The Eagle
Vanguard (UK), 1972. New Copy
A soaring set from the great Robbie Basho – one of the most unique artists of his generation! Basho's often mentioned in the same breath as John Fahey, but a record like this really shows his difference – as the record not only features wonderful work on both 6 and 12 string guitar ... CD
Folkways/Mississippi, 1920s/1930s/1940s. New Copy 2LP (reissue)
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 ... LP, Vinyl record album
Vanguard/Light In The Attic, 1968. New Copy Gatefold (reissue)
A totally hip instrumental album from Peter Walker – a Vanguard Records treasure that we'd rank right up there with the label's classics from Sandy Bull! Like Bull, Walker has a way of taking older folk instrumentation into richly psychedelic territory – working here on both the Indian ... LP, Vinyl record album
Capitol, 1969. New Copy 2CD
An amazing live document of Hag at his late 60s best! Recorded in – you guessed it – Muskogee, OK in 1969, this excellent 45th Anniversary edition also includes the nearly as great, comparably rare follow-up live album Fightin' Side Of Me, recorded in Philly in 1970. If you've seen ... CD
Raccoon/Future Days, 1972. New Copy Gatefold
Raw & rambling folk sounds from Michael Hurly – recorded in early '72 – some of his better material of the era, living up to if not surpassing his Armchair Boogie of a couple years earlier! Michael's in seemingly amiable spirit here on some tunes, and standing on shakier ground or ... CD
American, 2010. New Copy (reissue)
The sixth volume of American Recordings from Johnny Cash – recorded in the months between June's & Johnny's passing – produced by an increasingly reverent Rick Rubin and put together with care and consideration. Cash sounds justifiably weary on these late recordings, with songs ... LP, Vinyl record album
