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 friend and frequent songwriting partner Shel Silverstein. Johnny Cash gets all the mainstream attention for collaborating with Shel on "A Boy Named Sue", but Shel and Bare have a far richer collaborative history together. Home For The Hungrys tells the story of the impoverished, with the title track, "Back Home In Huntsville Again", "Bottles And Boxes", "Truck Driver, Truck Driver", "The Unemployment Line" and more. The Winners And Other Losers is simply a great batch of tunes, sans concept, with the enduring "Drop Kick Me Jesus", "My Better Half", "Keeping Rosie Proud Of Me" and more. 24 tracks in all.  © 1996-2014, Dusty Groove, Inc.

Omni (Australia), 1967/1969. New Copy
A pair of should-be classic albums by Curly Putman – who never really busted out in a big way as a recording artist, but his impact as a songwriter is something else, folks – he wrote some of the greatest songs ever recorded by a who's who of country legends! For perspective, just try ... CD
RCA/Omni (Australia), 1958/1959. New Copy
Oddball folk and Americana from the great Jimmie Driftwood – with a pair of great late 50s LPs and contemporaneous material – nicely compiled by Omni! Jimmie's trademark was to put a clever, tongue-in-cheek spin on historically set songs – done most famously on "Battle Of ... CD
Righteous (UK), 1950s. New Copy
Some of the best early heartbreaking country numbers you're likely to hear – the hugely underappreciated earlier records cut by singer Goldie Hill in the 50s – work the influenced some of the very best female honky tonk singers of 50s, 60s & 70s – but Goldie still doesn't get ... CD
Delay 68 (UK), Late 60s/Early 70s. New Copy
A fantastic follow-up to the first Folk Is Not A Four Letter Word compilation – and like that set, a CD that's bound to reshape your ideas of the genre! The work here is hardly the familiar folk of the 60s – and instead, tracks are pulled from a motherlode of obscure rarities that ... CD
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
Compete Paramount & Brunswick
Tompkins Square, Late 20s. New Copy
A beautiful collection of rare 78 rpm material – the complete 1929 recordings of Charlie Poole & The Highlanders – some of the smokingest string band music you'll ever find from the time! The set was lovingly remastered from vintage 78s cut for Paramount and Brunswick – and ... CD
Delmore, 1970. New Copy
Sublime solo work from Peter Walker – a hell of a guitarist with a very edgy sound, and a vocalist with this dark tone that almost takes us back to some of the moodier moments from the early Velvet Underground! The combination is amazing – very deft, complicated lines on a Gibson ... CD
Capitol/Omnivore, Late 50s/1960s. New Copy 2 CDs
A fantastic Buck Owens retrospective from the always affectionate, comprehensive and respectful Omnivore label – an appropriately named company if there ever was one – because we hungrily eat up just about everything they put out! Buck Owens two-fronted legacy as a Bakersfield honky ... CD
Room 237
Death Waltz (UK), 2012. New Copy
Contemporary work, but sounds that are greatly inspired by the best Italian soundtracks of the 70s and 80s – particularly those keyboard-heavy horror scores that have been so influential over the years! The music has the live, non-programmed feel of the best Goblin albums – but also ... CD
Golden Pavilion (Portugal), 2014. New Copy
A contemporary set with a folksy twist – but one that really fits the older style of the mostly-reissue music we usually hear on the Golden Pavillion label! The vocals are especially great – with this sort of ancient rasp that almost takes us back to early Palace Brothers material ... CD
Philips/Universal (Brazil), 1968. New Copy
A landmark album – not just in Brazilian music, but in all modern music in general! The set's a legendary manifesto for the Tropicalia movement in Brazil – and features key works by all the leading musical luminaries in the movement – including a few later stars who are heard ... CD
