A dream come true for all of us who ever loved the incredible songs of Kris Kristofferson at the peak of his craft – his late 60s and early 70s publishing demos – never before released versions of some of his best songs ever in the raw, unvarnished mode we always longed for! It's amazing stuff, including many tracks that would go on to be Kristofferson standards – numbers that got a little too clean and glossy on some of his own LPs and as recorded by others, which is what makes this compilation such a revelation. A genuine coup for our friends at Light In The Attic and a presentation of some of our favorite songs of the era by anyone – done raw and real, the way we always wanted to hear them! The set's produced by Mark Linn, who is responsible for the excellent Karen Dalton archival releases on the Delmore label, and he does similarly great work for Kris. It includes an excellent booklet with reminiscences by Dennis Hopper and Merle Haggard, full lyrics and notes from Kristofferson – plus rare photos and liner notes by Michael Simmons. Includes "Me And Bobby McGee", "Please Don't Tell Me How The Story Ends", "Smile At Me Again", "Border Lord", "Just The Other Side Of Nowhere", "Slow Down", "If You Don't Like Hank Williams", "When I Loved Her", "Billy Dee", "Getting By, High And Strange" and more. 16 tracks in all. (Limited edition and likely to go pretty quickly!)  © 1996-2014, Dusty Groove, Inc.

Mississippi, Late 20s/1930s/1940s. New Copy
The title's a great one for the nature of the collection – a mixture of obscure folk, blues, and old-time music – most of it made by relatively recent immigrants to the US! The package does a great job of drawing strands between early styles of music that were recorded for 78rpm ... LP, Vinyl record album

Haunted Brain
Unheard-Of, 2014. New Copy
Wonderful musings from the haunted brain of Russell Hoke – a timeless album of indie, outsider material – sung and played by Hoke on guitar, banjo, and harmonica – with the same blend of folk and blues as in his 80s recordings! The songs are better-formed here, but still recorded ... LP, Vinyl record album
