Incredible String BandBig Huge ... LP
Elektra, Late 60s. Very Good ... $6.99
Half of the fourth album from The Incredible String Band and their most sprawling work to date – which was originally split into separate LPs for the US release – this being The Big Huge portion! Multi-instrumentalists Mike Heron & Robin Williamson began using studio multi-tracking to incredible effect on their previous LP, and continue on that path here, though accompanied by frequent collaborator Licorice (who earlier sang with the group, but contributes Irish harp & percussion here) plus violin and percussion by Rose – and the album as in turns their most ambitious. Titles include "Maya", "Greatest Friend", "Lordly Nightshade", "The Son Of Noah's Brother", "Cousin Catepillar", "The Circle Is Unbroken" and more. LP, Vinyl record album
(Red label pressing. Cover has some wear.)

Stanley BrothersStanley Brothers – 1949 to 1952 ... CD
Bear Family (Germany), Late 40s/Early 50s. New Copy ... $13.99 21.98
Timeless, traditional, beautiful bluegrass ballads of love and lament from the Stanley Brothers – including the best version of "I'm A Man Of Constant Sorrow" you'll ever hear! These earlier Stanley recordings from the late 40s and early 50s have some strains of tradition blues, rags, and spirituals – and kind of came on at the the tail end of the world Harry Smith would soon later shine a brilliant light on – that unique space between folk and country, roots and hillbilly – then still quite fresh, and almost without a mainstream audience. The set features 24 classics from the Sony/Columbia vaults – and titles include "A Vision Of Mother", "The White Dove", "Little Glass Of Wine", "We'll Be Sweethearts In Heaven", "I Love No One But You", "The Fields Have Turned Brown", "Hey! Hey! Hey!", "The Wandering Boy", "Let's Part The Best Of Friends", "Too Late To Cry", "Pretty Polly", and "The Old Home":. CD

VariousFace A Frowning World – An EC Ball Memorial Album ... CD
Tompkins Square, 2009. Used ... $5.99
A tribute to Rugby, VA gospel country stalwart EC Ball that's fun, stirring and warm to the soul – many tunes featuring a house band backing singers including Bonnie Prince Billy, Jolie Holland, Michael Hurley, Catherine Irwin, Jon Langford, The Handsome Family and more! Given that a house band was behind many of the tunes, there's warmth and a consistency here that puts this well above and beyond more hodge podgy tributes, well intentioned as they are – recorded in Kentucky by Palace Brother Paul Oldham, and including guitarist Dave Bird, mandolin player Brian Manley, pedal steel player Neil Hulswede, pianist and accordian player Kirk Kiefer and others. Includes the vintage ""Introduction"" by EC Ball, ""He's My God"" sung by Dave Bird, ""John The Baptist"" sung by Bonnie Prince Billy, ""Warfare"" sung by Joe Manning, ""Jenny Jenkins"" sung by The Handsome Family, ""Whe I Get Home I'm Gonna Be Satisfied"" sung by Jon Langford, ""Beautiful Star Of Bethlehem"" sung by Bonnie Prince Billy, Dave Bird and Catherine Irwin, ""Jubilee"" sung by The Sandpaper Dolls and more.

VariousHillbillies – They Tried To Rock Vol 1 ... CD
Bear Family (Germany), Mid 50s. New Copy ... $19.99 26.98
They tried to rock – and rock they did – in this very cool assortment of rockabilly numbers cut by cats who were better-known as mainstream country artists – all of whom were trying on a new set of sounds during the early years of rock and roll! Some of the singers here were older established acts, and others were younger talents who hadn't yet decided on a direction – and together, they all make some mad musical moments here – tracks that have firm country roots, but lots of surprising rockabilly inflections – not the kind of sounds you might normally expect from artists like Webb Pierce, Lefty Frizell, George Jones, or Eddy Arnold. The package is a treasure in the best Bear Family mode – with copious notes and images that really get at the uniqueness of the work – and a 31 track package filled with great titles that include "Teenage Boogie" by Webb Pierce, "I Gotta Know" by Wanda Jackson, "Blue Suede Shoes" by Pee Wee King, "Little Lovin'" by Mimi Moman, "Ten Cats Down" by The Miller Sisters, "Hey Little Dreamboat" by Rose Maddox, "Go, Boy, Go" by Carl Smith, "Maybelline" by Carl Perkins, "Hep Cat Baby" by Eddy Arnold, "Let The Teardrops Fall" by Patsy Cline, "Red Hen Rock" by The Louvin Brothers, "You're Humbuggin Me" by Lefty Frizzell, "I'm Comin Home" by Johnny Horton, "One Night" by Kirk Hansard, and "Goodnight Sweetheart Goodnight" by Johnnie & Jack.

VariousTurn Me Loose – Outsiders Of Old Time Music ... CD
Tompkins Square, Late 20s. Used ... $9.99
A great little set that really lives up to the promise of its title – and it's claim to offer up "commercial recordings of Anglo-European American vernacular music that challenges the stereotypes"! The set's a wealth of obscure 78rpm recordings that really defy genre convention – and which show that the 20s was easily one of the most experimental times in American music – a point when later common styles were really quite new, and still very fluid – bits of later blues, folk, or country intermingling equally – often from sources that you wouldn't expect a decade or two later. These tracks are all acoustic, but feature really inventive instrumentation – especially when modes of a generation or two before are pushed into new phrasings with decidedly (then) modern flavors. As usual with these Tompkins Square reissues, the sound quality is great – and the package offers up some good notes to help situate the music too. Titles include "Caliope" by Lewis Brothers, "Bacon & Cabbage" by Blind Joe Mangrum & Fred Shriver, "Don't Get One Woman On Your Mind" by Willard Hodgin, "The Whale Did I Know He Did" by Mustard & Gravy, "Ladies Quadrille" by The Happy Hayseeds, "Dill Pickles Rag" by McLaughlin's Old Time Melody Makers, and "Down In Tennessee Blues" by Homer Davenport.

✨✧ John FaheyOf Rivers & Religion (180 gram pressing) ... LP
Reprise, 1972. New Copy (reissue)... Temporarily Out Of Stock
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 elements than usual – additional instrumentation that includes bass, banjo, clarinet, piano, trombone, and fiddle – but all used at a level that really supports John's presence, not occludes it. Other tracks return to spare acoustic steel string guitar – creating an evocative balance that's mighty nice. Titles include "Funeral Song For Mississippi John Hurt", "Texas & Pacific Blues", "Dixie Pig Bar B Q Blues", "Lord Have Mercy Song", and "Deep River". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Fairport ConventionLiege & Lief (with bonus tracks) ... CD
Island (UK), 1970. New Copy ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A record that really has Fairport Convention knocking it out of the park – making a bold turn towards British traditional music, but in a way that imbues these relics with a whole new life of their own! The album came at a key turning point – after an accident that took one of their members, and which almost saw the group disband – but instead turn towards the past for even deeper inspiration than some of their contemporaries, whom they'd covered on other records – at a level that seems to set Sandy Denny free into this sublime territory of her own! Denny's vocals are incredible – like a think unlocked from some ancient vault – and they're given this wonderful focus through the growing complexity of Richard Thompson's guitar work, and the understated brilliance of Ashley Hutchings' bass – both of which bring in these modal inflections that are very 60s, and hardly conceived of as accompaniment with the original tunes. The result is tremendous – tunes that are completely transformed, as a touchstone for generations. Titles include "Matty Groves", "Reynardine", "Come All Ye", "The Deserter", "Tam Lin", and "Crazy Man Michael". Features two bonus tracks – both previously unissued – "Quiet Joys Of Brotherhood" and "Sir Patrick Spens". CD
