Stefan GrossmanFlowers On The Wall – The Unique Art Of Stefan Grossman ... CD
Transatlantic/El (UK), Early 70s. Used ... Just Sold Out!
Beautiful post folk era work from acoustic guitar genius Stefan Grossman – a thick compilation of tracks from the Ragtime Cowboy Jew and Those Pleasant Days LPs, and more from his early 70s Transatlantic Records efforts – stacked together on great CD! Flowers On The Wall has a pretty wide stylistic breadth, with some rags and acoustic blues type tunes that Grossman is best known for, plus some surprisingly adventurous originals that really blend some of the more interesting singer-songwriter idiosyncracies of the era. Plus Grossman's playing is absolutely impeccable! 20 tracks in all: "Morning Comes", "The Birthday Song (People Get Ready)", "Odyssey", "Orphan Sunday", "Matesa", "Make Believe Stunt", "Waterfalls", "Prairie Song", "Sond Techniques Recording Blues", "Lena Anne", "Song For A Brother", "Flowers On The Wall" and more.

Blackwood BrothersRock A My Soul (5CD set) ... CD
RCA/Bear Family (Germany), 1950s. Used ... $68.99
A spiritual act, but one who really helped give the music a groove, and find a way to move alongside country and pop on the Tennessee scene of the postwar years! The group are from Memphis, and may not have the deep soul of Sun or Excello gospel groups, but certainly have some great harmonies – as you'll hear on this set that brings together all their RCA recordings from the 50s – along with a mighty nice book too!

Louvin BrothersFirst Steps – The Early Recordings ... CD
Rural Routes, Early 50s. New Copy ... $11.99 15.98
Sublime sounds from the legendary Louvin Brothers – heard here on a collection of tracks recorded before their more famous years at Capitol Records – for labels that include Decca, Apollo, and MGM! Yet even at this early point, the brothers are fantastic – graced with a harmony sound that was both rooted in the hills, and which would become a huge influence on rock and folk generations to come – often just backed by simple guitar and mandolin backings, which usually don't offer the pyrotechnics of contemporaries like Bill Monroe – lest they get in the way of the vocals – yet still have a way of ringing out with a fantastic sort of depth. Titles include "Weapon Of Prayer", "Alabama", "Seven Year Blues", "The Get Acquainted Waltz", "You'll Be Rewarded Over There", "Robe Of White", "The Sons & Daughters Of God", "Childish Love", and "The Great Atomic Power".

Buck OwensWarner Brothers Recordings (Buck Em/Our Old Mansion/singles) ... CD
Warner/Wounded Bird, Late 70s. New Copy 2CD ... $15.99 18.99
Most folks associate Buck Owens with Capitol Records – the label that catapulted him to fame in the 60s – but after that initial run with the company, Owens recorded briefly for Warner Brothers in the mid 70s – with really great results that made for some mighty special music! That famous Owens voice is still in fantastic form – but given maybe a more mature direction on some of the material – maybe informed a bit by changes in country music that were being wrought by singers like Waylon Jennings or David Allen Coe – who seem to inspire Buck to take on a bit more honky tonk at times, and move away from more familiar Bakersfield modes. This great set brings together all the work that Owens did for the label – the albums Buck Em and Our Old Mansion – plus a fair bit of singles that he issued at the same time too. 41 tracks in all – with titles that include "Hollywood Waltz", "We're Gonna Build A Fire", "Child Support", "When I Need You", "Hangin In & Hangin On", "Love Is A Warm Cowboy", "How Come My Dog Don't Bark", "Texas Tornado", "He Don't Deserve You Anymore", "You're Gonna Need A Doctor", "Streets Of Bakersfield", and "When I Need You".

Stanley BrothersComplete Columbia Stanley Brothers 1949 to 1952 ... CD
Columbia, Late 40s/Early 50s. New Copy ... $5.99 7.98
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 22 classics from the Columbia vaults – their complete ouvre for label, minus a couple alternate takes from the earlier compilation on Bear Family: "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

Bonny Prince BillyBest Troubador (with download & bonus tracks) ... LP
Drag City, 2017. New Copy 2LP ... $21.99
A tribute to the great Merle Haggard, and one of Will Oldham's best albums yet – as Bonny Prince Billy, or as any of his other noms de plume – and truly as warm and honest of an homage to Hag as we'd ever hope to hear! Merle Haggard is best known to the masses as an icon of classic country, especially hardscrabble honky tonk, but he was lover of myriad styles of rural American music, always filtering diverse strains into his own songwriting, his live and studio arrangements, and interpretations of other songwriters. As such a unique voice and writer himself, Oldham deeply understands Haggard, and in these versions of songs from throughout Haggard's career you can really hear his love and respect, while still doing his own thing with the material. It's a joy whether you're longtime fans of Palace Brothers, Bonny Prince Billy, Will Oldham et al, Merle Haggard, or even just timeless, unique, largely acoustic music. There's a lot to love here! Includes unique versions of a couple Hag standards, but even richer with fan favorites and lesser-known songs he wrote or lovingly adapted over the years. Includes "The Fugitive", "My Old Pal", "Haggard (Like I've Never Been Before)", "Rose In The Winter", "Nobody's Darling", "If I Could Only Fly" and more. Vinyl version is has 2 unlisted bonus tracks, too: "Mama Tried" and "No Time To Cry". (Rock, Folk/Country) LP, Vinyl record album
(Vinyl includes 2 unlisted bonus tracks – plus digital download card & a bumper sticker!)

Johnny CashJohnny Cash at San Quentin ... LP
Columbia/Sundazed, 1969. New Copy (reissue)... $19.99 24.98
Johnny returns to prison for another incredible set – a set might be an even more remarkable portrait of the Man In Black at his raucous best than the uber legendary Live At Folsom Prison! Like the Folsom gig, the set was captured by producer Bob Johnston, who also so masterfully recorded Bob Dylan at his most primal. Unlike the Folsom set, in which Johnny was famously accompanied by the Tennessee Three, the San Quentin band was fleshed out to include all of the still performing Carter women, Carl Perkins and the Statler Brothers. Another breathtaking prison recording, featuring the famous version of "A Boy Named Sue" where you hear the crowd going completely nuts. Tracks include "I Walk The Line", "Darling Companion", "San Quentin", "Wanted Man", "Peace In The Valley", "Wreck Of Old 97" and more. LP, Vinyl record album

Fairport ConventionWho Knows Where The Time Goes – The Essential Fairport Convention (3CD set) ... CD
Island/Universal (UK), Late 60s/1970s. New Copy 3CD ... $11.99
The genius of Fairport Convention knows no bounds – as the group were an ever-vibrant, ever-creative ensemble – often changing membership as much as they experimented with new styles – in a fantastic range that's very well captured on this 3CD set! Fairport are way more than the folk rock outfit that they're most easily identified as – because although the group certainly draws a lot from folk traditions, both ancient and modern, they bring so much more to their music as well – including especially compelling use of electric guitar and bass (the former on many of these tracks by the young Richard Thompson) – and transcendent vocals from Sandy Denny that really helps take the music to a new dimension. The set offers about a decade's worth of recordings by the group – 52 tracks in all – including some more unusual moments, and even some rarer tracks too – a great selection of titles that includes "Sir Patrick Spens", "Fotheringay", "Suzanne", "Chelsea Morning", "Ballad Of Easy Rider", "Quiet Joys Of Brotherhood", "Matty Groves", "Genesis Hall", "The Plainsman", "The Hens March Through The Midden & The Four Poster Bed", "Cropredy Capers", "When First Into This Country", "Farewell Farewell", "Angles Brown", "The Last Waltz", "John Lee", "Breakfast In Mayfair", "Sailor's Alphabet", and "Banks Of The Sweet Primroses".

✨✧ VariousWhistle Bait – 25 Rockabilly Rave Ups ... CD
Columbia/Sony, Late 50s. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
Massive sounds from Columbia Records – a smoking set of rockabilly numbers that the legendary label cut during a time when it was making most of its money selling mainstream pop, classical music, and Broadway showtunes albums! Yet beneath all that big-cash production, Columbia found the time to get some amazing records cut in the studio – searing tracks that still bristle with plenty of power and raw energy all these many years later – and which easily match the fire and frenzy of singles you'd hear from some of the more obscure indies that are always prized by collectors of early rock singles! Some artists are Columbia country singers, stepping out for much more gritty action on cuts like these – others are more obscure rock acts that hit the label's roster far from the clean pop of Mitch Miller – and the CD features 25 gems that include "Whistle Bait" by Larry Collins, "Dig Boy Dig" by Freddie Hart, "Big Fool" by Ronnie Self, "I Got A Hole In My Pocket" by Little Jimmy Dickens, "Romp Stompin Boogie" by Jaycee Hill, "Good Rockin Baby" by Sid King & The Five Strings, "Mean Mama Blues" by Marty Robbins, "I'm Comin Home" by Johnny Horton, "Ah Poor Little Baby" by Billy Crash Craddock, "Hoy Hoy" by Collins Kids, "Everybody's Rockin" by Werly Fairburn, "Rawhide" by Link Wray, "You're Humbuggin Me" by Lefty Frizzell, and "Ugly & Slouchy" by Maddox Brothers. (Rock, Folk/Country) CD
