Wanda JacksonRockin' With Wanda (with bonus tracks) ... CD
Capitol (Japan), 1960. New Copy ... $19.99
Wanda Jackson may look nice and sweet on the cover, but she's a raw rocker throughout on this classic Capitol album from early in her career – cut at a time when Jackson was drinking a brew that was equal part R&B, hillbilly, and early rock influences – all fused together in a wonderfully powerful groove – one that definitely fits her unique vocal approach! Wanda sings at a level here that really should have done permanent damage to her vocal chords – this raw, throat rasping mode that's instantly recognizable – and forever set the tone for all the later female rockers who might never have come later, had Jackson not opened the door! Titles include "Fujiyama Mama" – one of the most incendiary unsung rock and roll singles of all time – plus other great ones like "Rock You Baby", "Cool Love", "Honey Bop", "Baby Loves Him", "Mean Mean Man", "You've Turned To A Stranger", and "Hot Dog That Made Him Mad". CD features bonus tracks – including "Our Song", "Sinful Heart", "Date With Jerry", "Reaching", "Savin My Love", and "I'd Rather Have You". CD

Hank ThompsonHank Thompson At The Golden Nugget ... CD
Capitol, 1961. Used ... $8.99
A live album recorded at a Vegas casino, complete with some occasional sound effects from the floor! The feel is nice and spontaneous, and there's some added jazzy horns in the mix – which makes for a nice contrast with the intimate twang of Hank's guitar. Titles include "I Guess I'm Getting Over You", "Honky Tonk Girl", "She's Just A Whole Lot Like You", "Steel Guitar Rag", and "Lost Highway". CD

Wade RayIdaho Red – Gonna Shake This Shack Tonight ... CD
Bear Family (Germany), Mid 50s. New Copy ... $19.99 29.99
Overlooked western swing material from Wade Ray – a mighty smiling singer, and one with a style that definitely matches his good spirits! The music here is a bit later than more familiar western swing – but that's also part of its charm, as both the instrumentation and production are nice and focused - blending Wade's vocals and fiddle work with some twanging electric guitar, and great Hollywood 50s recording styles that give the music the sharpness and bounce of some of the best Capitol Records country cuts of the time. If you've never heard Wade, there's plenty here to love – a whopping 30 tracks in all, mostly pulled from his time at RCA – with titles that include "Saturday Night", "Fiddlin Rag", "Call Me Up", "Don't Wait To Baby Your Baby", "Idaho Red", "Two Red Red Lips", "I Need A Good Girl Bad", "Walk Softly", and "Let Me Go Devil".

Faron YoungClassic Years – 1952-1962 (5 CD box set with book) ... CD
Bear Family (Germany), 1950s/Early 60s. Used 5CD & Book ... $49.99
Faron's entire Capitol output on 5 CDs, showcasing the finest years off the "hillybilly heartthrob"! Faron's earlier stuff for the label showcased his great affinity for the honky tonk stomping style of the recently diseased Hank Williams, and as his catalog grew he obtained more of a glossier country pop sheen more associated with Countrypolitan stars like Eddy Arnold. What singled Faron Young out most among 50s country giants, was an always present tongue-in-cheek quality that really sets him out there as a first rate showman and entertaining personality, as well as hugely fun listen! Nearly 160 tunes, including "They Made Me Fall In Love With You", "I've Got Five Dollars And It's Saturday", "That's The Way It's Gotta Be", "River Boat", "My Darling, My Darling", "Liver Fast, Love hard, Die Young", "Vacation's Over", "I'll Fly Away", "I Made A Fool Of Myself", "There's Not Nay Like You Left", "My Home Sweet home", "Suppertime" and tons and tons more! Also included in this handsome box is a great book full of everything you need to know about Faron and the recordings! CD
(Out of print. Includes original book and box, all in great condition only with a small spot of sticker residue on the front of the box.)

✨✧ VariousOther Side Of Bakersfield Vol 1 – 50s & 60s Boppers & Rockers From Nashville West ... CD
Bear Family (Germany), Late 50s/Early 60s. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
Rare sounds from the west coast hub of country music – a surprisingly rich legacy of early rockabilly from the Bakersfield scene! The package is a treasure trove of tunes we've never heard before – and stands as a nice alternate to better-known work on labels like Chess, RCA, and King – with a rich array of under-discovered tracks that were originally issued on Capitol, Liberty, Decca, and many other small labels at the time! The notes are as great as the music – a really thoughtful, historical presentation of the music – along with loads of photos and label scans – almost a mini version of the bigger Bear Family box sets – with 31 tracks that include "Untied" by Tommy Collins, "Don't Go Baby" by Al Coker, "Hot Dog" by Corky Jones, "Daddy Loves Mommyo" by Tommy Duncan, "Go Crazy Man" by Bill Woods, "We're Gonna Bop" by Alvadean Coker, "I Used To Love You" by Bill Carter, "Monkey Bite" by Al Hendrix, "I Used To Love You" by Bill Carter, "Seal Rock" by Ernie Kelly, and "Stood Up Blues" by Custer Bottoms.
