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".

Wanda JacksonRockin' With Wanda ... CD
Capitol (Japan), 1960. New Copy ... On July 22, 2015
One of the best rock and/or country LPs of the late 50s and early 60s! Capitol signed the rockabilly rebel princess several years prior to the release of this collection of her jumpy, frenetic singles, and had Wanda record more crossover material, which she succeeded at in incredible fashion. That left Capitol to finally release a record of her earlier trademark style, and boy it's a doozy! You get "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 bonus tracks including "Sinful Heart" and "I'd Rather Have You". Sweet, but feral honky tonk rockers of the first order! CD

✨✧ Merle HaggardSwinging Doors ... CD
Koch, 1966. Used ... Just Sold Out!
One of the great early Merle Haggard records with The Strangers – and a classic that swung open all kinds of doors for Hag and all honky tonk legends to follow! The barroom laments come into full bloom on this record, with the unvarnished honky tonk style that Hag helped define, though done with just enough Capitol polish, courtesy of the great and legendary producers Ken Nelson and Fuzzy Owen. It contains uber-classic "The Bottle Let Me Down" plus the equally great title track, plus comparably overlooked album classics like "I'll Look You Over", "The Girl Turned Ripe", "No More You & Me", "I Can't Stand Me", "No More You And Me" a great version of the Tommy Collins classic and Bakersfield Sound bedrock "High On A Hilltop","Shade Tree (Fix-It Man)".

✨✧ 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.
