✨✧ Little RichardFabulous Little Richard ... LP
Specialty, 1959. Near Mint- ... $14.99
Little Richard doing his much imitated, never bettered thing on the Fabulous Little Richard LP – released near the end of the 50s and featuring emotive r&b numbers he cut in earlier sessions – not all as wild-eyed and fiery as some of his 50s recordings but a soulful thrill! The album does feature a few of the more blazing classics, but all in all, this one demonstrates Richard's versatility more than some of his 50s work. Fabulous tracks from true legend! Includes "Shake A Hand", "Chicken Little Baby", "All Night Long", "Lonesome & Blue", "Kansas City", Maybe I'm Right", "I'm Just A Lonely", "Whole Lotta Shaking Going On", "I'm Just A Lonly Guy" and more. (Soul, Rock) LP, Vinyl record album
(Nice UK reissue pressing, from Ace Records!)

✨✧ Karen Dalton1966 (plus download) ... LP
Delmore, 1966. New Copy ... $19.99
The third in a series of unearthed archival release of treasures by 60s folk singer, guitarist and banjo player Karen Dalton from Delmore Recordings – and it's also the third completely beautiful and revelatory Karen Dalton release from Delmore Recordings! For years, Dalton was best known by her peers in the early 60s folk community, particularly the Greenwich Village scene, where she was beloved by Dylan and other soon-to-be giants. Thanks in no small part to the great stuff brought to light by Delmore and the stellar Light In The Attic reissues, she's finally getting an audience beyond pivotal fellow musicians, which is truly thrilling. 1966 features songs recorded that year in her cabin in Summerville, Colorado – between the Green Rocky Road recordings of a few years earlier and the recordings that would make up her first official album, which wouldn't be released until '69. She's sometimes accompanied by Richard Tucker on guitar and vocal duets. Karen was infamously self-conscious on stage and in the studio, so these informal home recordings find her at her intimate, soulful best. Includes one the best versions of Tim Hardin's "Reason To Believe" we've ever heard, plus "Katie Cruel", "Cotton Eyed Joe", "Green Rocky Road", "God Bless The Childen", "Other Side To This Life", "Don't Make Promises", "Mole In The Ground", "Misery Blues", "Little Bit Of Rain" and more. Also includes excellent notes by Ben Edmonds. (Folk/Country, Rock) LP, Vinyl record album

Delaney & Bonnie & FriendsTo Bonnie From Delaney ... CD
Atco/Wounded Bird, 1970. New Copy ... $10.99 11.99
Delaney and Bonnie Bramlett certainly have some heavy friends here – a stunning host of guest help on the record, who make the whole thing come together with a sweet blend of southern rock and soul! The duo were always almost more of a soul act than a rock one, and that quality really shows through here – as they tear it up with help from The Memphis Horns, plus Duane Allman on slide guitar, Bobby Whitlock on organ, Charlie Freeman on guitar, and even a bit of guest help from King Curtis on tenor and Little Richard on piano! Tunes include some great originals that show why the Bramlett's were the premier roots rock act of the time – mixed with a few nicely-chosen cuts by other folks – in a lineup that includes "Lay Down My Burden", "God Knows I Love You", "Hard Luck & Troubles", "Soul Shake", "Miss Ann", "Living On The Open Road", "Free The People", "The Love Of My Man", and "Living On The Open Road".

Hunter MuskettEvery Time You Move (180 gram pressing) ... LP
Decca/Lilith (Italy), 1970. Sealed (reissue)... $9.99
A folksy trio, but one with a very sophisticated sound – thanks to some added arrangements from Richard Hewson – who gives the record a much fuller feel than you might guess from the acoustic image on the cover! Hunter Muskett's a UK trio featuring Chris George, Terry Hiscock, and Doug Morter – all on vocals and acoustic guitar – sometimes singing solo, sometimes in a warmly harmonic mode that really sounds great with the fuller backings. And the backings are subtle enough, just a bit here and there – in the way that Nick Drake's albums were augmented at points, but not all the way through – a wonderful balance that never softens the sound at all. Titles include "Every Time You Move", "Hey Little Girl", "Castle", "I Have A House", "Inside Mine", "The Wait", "Cardboard Man", "Davy Lowston", "Snow", and "Storm On The Shore".

Ian MatthewsIf You Saw Thro' My Eyes ... LP
Vertigo, 1971. Very Good Gatefold ... $9.99
A really nice set from Ian Matthews – who cut his teeth a few years earlier with Fairport Convention – and gets a little help here from fellow Fairporters Sandy Denny and Richard Thompson. Ian's warmth in the vocal department really glows here – and the sound overall brings in some sweet country rock and west coast folk rock as well as any Brit effort we can think of. Very good stuff! Tracks include "Desert Inn", "Hearts", "Never Ending", "Reno Nevada", "Hinge I", "Hinge II", "Southern Wind", Morgan The Pirate", "If You Saw Thro' My Eyes" and more. LP, Vinyl record album

Tiny TimComplete Singles Collection 1966 to 1970 ... CD
Reprise/Now Sounds (UK), Late 60s. New Copy ... $13.99
Incredible work from Tiny Tim – exactly the kind of set to show the world that he was way more than just a novelty act and a one-hit wonder! Tim's a goofball, to be sure – a long-haired cat who plays ukulele and sings in this weirdly high voice – but he's also got this darker side, and a biting wit that also serves to undermine the larger world of pop and 20th Century American culture – at the same time he's slyly weaving himself into the fabric! Tim's star rose fast, and burnt out quickly – but during the short time covered by these singles, he made some really amazing music in the same Warner Brothers realm that gave the world Van Dyke Parks and Harper's Bizarre – often working with similar studio talents, and getting help from hip arrangers who include Artie Butler, Perry Botkin, Richard Perry, John Andrews Tartaglia, Nick DeCaro, and other hip young forces in the groovy late 60s LA scene. Tiny Tim's got a surprisingly great range, one that's demonstrated perfectly in these singles and flipsides – on a batch of 22 titles that include "Spaceship Song", "Neighborhood Children", "Mickey The Monkey", "Little Girl", "Fill Your Heart", "Hello Hello", "As Time Goes By", "America I Love You", "I'm A Lonesome Little Raindrop", "What The World Needs Now Is Love", "Movies", and "What Kind Of American Are You".

VariousEverybody Wants Some – Music From The Motion Picture (with bonus tracks) ... LP
Rhino, Late 70s/Early 80s. New Copy 2LP ... $26.99 28.98
A sweet little soundtrack – filled with the sort of late 70s/early 80s gems you'd expect from this movie by Richard Linklater! The film's been called a sequel to Dazed & Confused, and the music is too – classic tracks pulled from roughly the same time period as the music used on the mixtape in Guardians Of The Galaxy, but maybe a bit more open-ended stylistically, too – with a lineup that includes "Cars" by Gary Numan, "Driver's Seat" by Sniff N The Tears, "Good Times Roll" by The Cars, "I'm Bad I'm Nationwide" by ZZ Top, "Maybe I'm A Fool" by Eddie money, "Whip It" by Devo, "Bad Girls" by Donna Summer, "Everybody Wants Some" by Van Halen, "Pop Muzik" by M, "Rough Boys" by Pete Townshend, "I Want You To Want Me (live)" by Cheap Trick, "Because The Night" by Patti Smith, "My Sharona" by The Knack, "Heart Of Glass" by Blondie, "Rapper's Delight" by Sugarhill Gang, "Every 1's A Winner" by Hot Chocolate, "Heartbreaker" by Pat Benatar, "Alternative Ulster" by Stiff Little Fingers, and "Let's Get Serious" by Jermaine Jackson.

VariousMystic Males 2 – Tripped Out Troubadours From 1966 to 1969 ... CD
Pet Records, Late 60s. New Copy Gatefold ... $9.99
Really mad music from this weird little series – a set of pop tracks from the end of the 60s, but all done with these weird psych and spiritual touches – definitely the "mystic males" promised in the title! The sound here isn't just that of mainstream pop-psych – and instead really reflects the deeper underground currents going on in the American scene at the time – on these small label singles that effortlessly swirl the vocals with trippy organ lines, fuzzy guitar, sparkling keyboards, and lots of cool twists and turns on the percussion and other acoustic instrumentation – often abstracted a bit in the production! Themes aren't that different from the mainstream, but also have an oddly eerie feel too – and titles include "London Bound" by Ed Powers, "Flower Song" by Shalynn, "Sometime Girl" by Gerry Pond, "I'm A Deeper Blue" by John Dunn, "How Much Do I Love You" by Darrius, "Four Robins Singing" by Tyroee Forrest, "Daydream" by Paul Stoop, and "Before She Goes" by Richard Coronado.

VariousVanguard Folk Rock Album ... CD
Big Beat (UK), Late 60s. New Copy ... $11.99 18.99
An amazing little set that will completely transform your understanding of folk music in the 60s – one that picks up with a second waves of folkies who were really opening their minds to the changes in rock music at the time! The styles here all blur wonderfully – as more standard 60s folk music comes into play with psychedelic instrumentation, tripped-out production, harmony pop, and a range of different modes that all make for some incredibly far-reaching work. All tunes come from the Vanguard Records catalog – a label who were making some initial waves in the early 60s, but who really came into their own during this heady era – and helped set the tone for the huge singer/songwriter boom in the mainstream years to come. The set features a total of 22 tracks from Vanguard – titles that include "Honey" by Eric Anderson, "Back On The Street Again" by Steve Gillette, "Someone To Talk My Troubles To" by Judy Roderick, "No Rest For The Weary" and "You'll Never Know What's In My Heart" by The Hi-Five, "Reason To Believe" by Patrick Sky, "Young Blues" by The Vagrants, "Changes" by Jonathan & Leigh, "Reno Nevada" by Richard & Mimi Farina, "January Morning" and "When I Was A Cowboy" by Ian & Sylvia, and "Long Black Cadillac" by Jackie Washington.

✨✧ VariousGoffin & King – A Gerry Goffin & Carole King Song Collection 1961 to 1967 ... CD
Ace (UK), 1960s. New Copy ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
The full scope of the mighty songwriting talents of Carole King and Gerry Goffin – a much-chronicled 60s team who had plenty of troubles of their own, but who brought some really amazing music to the world at the time! The package features songs in a variety of genres – soul, pop, rock, country, and more – including some appearing here on CD for the first time ever, and plenty more that aren't just the obvious Goffin/King hits! The CD features a huge booklet – nearly 25 pages in all – with track-by-track notes on the tunes, as well as on the songwriting team – and as with some of Ace's other explorations into 60s pop powerhouses, the single disc package is almost more informative and thorough than some bigger box sets. Titles include "He's In Town" by The Tokens, "Don't Ever Change" by The Crickets, "The First & The Last" by The Chiffons, "Brand New Man" by Richard Popcorn Wylie, "Let Me Get Close To You" by Skeeter Davis, "The Idol" by Bobby Vee, "I Can't Make It Alone" by PJ Proby, "Just A Little Girl" by Donna Loren, "I Can't Hear You" by Betty Everett, "I Just Can't Say Goodbye" by Bobby Rydell, "I Didn't Have Any Summer Romance" by The Satisfactions, "Yours Until Tomorrow" by Dee Dee Warwick, "So Much Love" by Ben E King, and "A Natural Woman" by Aretha Franklin.

✨✧ EsqueritaEsquerita! ... CD
Capitol (Japan), 1959. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
Standout early work from the mighty Esquerita – an artist you might initially write off as a Little Richard copycat, but one who also delivers a whole lot more in the end! The groove here is rough R&B, inflected with a touch of early soul – and the piano lines are worth the price of admission, played at a level that goes back to early New Orleans roots, but with more 50s bluesy currents – often alongside some tenor and guitar that rival the best instrumentation you'd find on indie singles at the time from King and Atlantic – quite a surprise for the normally-pop Capitol Records. And the vocals are something else, too – certainly with a soaring, screaming range – but also just wonderful when they're more down to earth, and in the groove. Titles include "Hey, Miss Lucy", "Why Did It Take You So Long", "She Left Me Cryin'", "Get Back Baby", "I Need You", "Maybe Baby", and "I'm Battie Over Hattie". (Soul, Rock) CD

✨✧ VariousBoppin By The Bayou – Rock Me Mama! – 28 Killer Diller Louisiana Tracks ... CD
Ace (UK), Late 50s/Early 60s. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
Killer cuts from the farthest reaches of the Louisiana scene in the early years of rock and roll – and exactly the kind of material that shows why that state was such an influential one at the time! The music here isn't just familiar rockabilly or crossover hits – and instead has this very deep, dirty vibe that brings together earlier blues, R&B, and even jazz elements – the kind of swampy mix that informed the groove in New Orleans soul, heard here with equal complexity in a range of really raw rockers! Piano triplets, snapping drums, and soulful tenor lines abound – and along with the very well-done notes, and a number of never-issued tracks, the whole thing works like some window into a lost corner of the southern scene of the time. Titles include "Bad Luck" by Danny, "Switch Blade Sam" by Jeff Daniels, "Gonna Work" by Richard Bros, "You're Jealous" by Jivin Gene, "You're Happy Now" by Little Carol, "Bayou Boogie" by Bennie Fruge, "She Left Me" by Al Ferrier, "Rock Me Mama" by Ken Lindsay, "Havin A Whole Lotta Fun" by Johnny Jano, "Rockin Fever" by Joe Carol & The Dukes Of Rhythm, and "Mama Look What Your Little Boy's Done" by Warren Storm.

✨✧ VariousOrk Records – New York, New York ... CD
Numero, Mid 70s. New Copy 2CD ... Out Of Stock
A mindblowing tribute to one of the most important indie rock labels of the early punk years – New York's Ork Records – an imprint that was almost as important to the music as CBGB! The label only lasted a few short years, but had an uncanny ear for capturing the best new sounds of the time – that genre-crossing, style-blending mode that distinguished American punk from its early UK partner – and which sometimes had surprisingly strong ties to earlier scenes too. Ork was surprisingly open-minded, and maybe not as narrowly cast as punk labels would become a few years later – but that's also not surprising, given the scene in which they worked – which is captured here beautifully in a very lavish boo, well over 100 pages – not only filled with notes, details on the music, and the history of the label – but also countless photos from the early years of punk in New York too. But hell, the music is more than enough to make this set great – as the package features a wealth of excellent titles that include "Let It Blurt" by Lester Bangs, "Little Johnny Jewel" by Television, "Fa Ce La" by The Feelies, "I Won't Give Up" by Erasers, "All Of The Time" by Alex Chilton, "I Thought You Wanted To Know" by Chris Stamey & The DBs, "You" by The Idols, "Christmas Weather" by The Student Teachers, "Everytime I Close My Eyes" by Prix, "You Gotta Lose" by Richard Hell, "Fire & Smoke" by Marbles, "Connection" by Richard Lloyd, "Play With Fire" by Mick Farren & The New Wave, "Funky Kinky" by Kenneth Higney, and lots lots more!
