LP, Vinyl record album


4.90 26

One of coolest live documents of folk music adventuror Sandy Bull you could ask for – recorded at the Berkeley Community Theater in 1976 – with Bull playing the oud, on stage with early version of the TASCAM 4-track recorder, utilized here as his backing "band"! He dubs his tape machine The Rhythm Ace – with Bull playing the oud to pre-taped drum machine and bass, and talking to the audience about just what heck they're seeing and hearing. We don't know of the audience was in awe, dumbstruck or what – folk fellows didn't do this kind of thing on stage in '76 – which makes it all the more rewarding to hear 35+ years later! Sandy's musicianship is brilliant, and it's great fun to listen to him talk about his pal The Rhythm Ace, too. Includes "Oud", "Love Is Forever", "Driftin", "Alligator Wrestler" (with an intro) and "New York City" – plus a demo of his Rhythm Ace.  © 1996-2014, Dusty Groove, Inc.

Return Of The Silkie
Drag City, 1983. New Copy (reissue)
Pretty harp playing and lovely folk vocals from Carol Kleyn – serving her warm, naturally evocative songcraft – which is accented by the sounds of lightly crashing waves, sea lion and harbor seal chattering! It's not as out-there as that probably sounds, to be honest. Carol's voice as ... LP, Vinyl record album

Numero, Mid 60s/1970s/Early 80s. New Copy 2LP
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 ...

On The Waters Edge
Mississippi, Late 20s. New Copy
Bluesy material, but all sung in French – and recorded in Louisiana during the 78rpm era by Blind Uncle Gaspard and Delma Lachney! The music here is all from vintage 78s, and is a definite precursor to later cajun sounds – but done at a level that's more acoustic blues styled overall ... 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

Reprise, 1972. New Copy (reissue)
A really unique album by John Fahey – issued during a short stretch of initial mainstream approval, and a brief time of recording for Warner Brothers! Some of the album's quite different than the spare, solo Fahey you might know – and mixes his legendary guitar work with more elaborate ... LP, Vinyl record album

Omnivore, 1950. New Copy
Wow! A 10-Inch EP of 1950 recordings by honky tonk originator Hank Williams for The Garden Spot radio programs – broadcast back on the day on KSIB-AM, in Creston, Iowa – but never before released commercially until now! Opens with the Garden Spot jingle, and includes versions of " ... LP, Vinyl record album

Vanguard, 1964. New Copy (reissue)
Not just the Vanguard debut of the great Jack Elliott – but a set that also features a rare appearance by Bob Dylan on harmonica – billed on the cover as "Tedham Porterhouse"! Dylan aside, though, the album's a great one from Jack – that unusual mix of folk and western ... LP, Vinyl record album

Magic Landscape
Village Thing/Lion/Wah Wah (Spain), 1972. New Copy
Tightly grooving folk rock from Hunt & Turner – far less hippy dippy than so many groups of the ilk, and focusing an really tight, guitar & melody driven sound! The instrumentation really pulls you into the vibe, not to take away from the appeal of the vocal performances, but they ... LP, Vinyl record album

Wings Of Africa
EMI/Now Again, 1974. New Copy (reissue)
A landmark album from Musi O Tunya – a set billed as one of the first Zamrock albums, but a record that's also got a fair bit of funk and jazz as well! The rhythms really take off once things get going – complicating things more than usual for this sort of outing – and opening ... LP, Vinyl record album

Kiss Of The Damned (with download)
Soraya, 1970s/1980s/1990s/2000s. New Copy
The soundtrack to Kiss Of The Damned – kind of a modern take on the style of sultry European vampire films of the 70s – nicely done by composer Steven Hufsteter and featuring some cool stand-alone songs, too! If you dig seedy 70s cinema and soundtracks as much as we do, you'll ... LP, Vinyl record album

Now Again/Stones Throw, 2013. New Copy
Some of the deepest, darkest sounds we've ever heard from The Heliocentrics – and that's saying a lot, given the freak and fuzz of these guys' other work! The music has an especially echoey feel – one that comes through in the use of analogue electronics that makes some passages feel ... LP, Vinyl record album

Mapeche (Spain), 1974. New Copy (reissue)
A great set of rare Canadian psych folk from the early 70s – rawly beautiful work that's way too good to have languished in the purgatories of general obscurity and collectors' hopes and dreams! Upon A Once Time is an all acoustic set, a good deal of it just Huckle's airy voice and guitar, ... LP, Vinyl record album
