Bobbie GentryTouch Em With Love ... CD
Capitol (Japan), 1969. New Copy ... $22.99
The Bobbie Gentry groove gets kicked up a bit more than before – thanks to some larger arrangements that almost bring a funky country approach to her music – and which seem to give her voice an even more soulful setting than before! Bobbie's still got the charms of her earlier, more acoustic material – but she also seems to have set her guitar aside, to focus more strongly on her singing – with a mix of southern currents and soul that almost remind us a bit of Dusty Springfield at Memphis or Muscle Shoals. Yet the vibe is definitely Gentry's own – as some songs are her own, and the music has that overall sense of female power that always made her such a standout from some of the weepier singers in Nashville. Arrangements are by Don Tweedy and Hank Levine – and titles include "Natural To Be Gone", "Seasons Come Seasons Go", "Touch Em With Love", "Where's The Playground Jimmy", "Greyhound Goin Somewhere", and "I Wouldn't Be Satisfied".

Gosdin BrothersSounds Of Goodbye (with bonus tracks) ... CD
Capitol/Big Beat (UK), 1968. New Copy ... $11.99 18.99
The long lost late 60s album by the Gosdin Brothers – FINALLY issued on CD! This Gosdin Brothers album were spawned from the same seeds as seminal, stargazing country rock icons like Gene Clark and the Byrds. If the Gosdin's compartatively scant recorded history and unfortunately rare reissues pretty much guarantee that they'll never be as widely remembered and name-dropped as their martyred peers, it certainly doesn't reflect on their music! Sounds Of Goodbye is very much cut from the same cloth as period Byrds recordings, with a bit more of a focus on the gorgeous, Louvin and Everly influenced harmonies. The production also has a punchy, Bakersfield honky tonk feel that simply never gets old. Vern Gosdin went on to have some solid success much later with some neotraditional honky tonk albums, but this early work with his brother sunny country excellence. Tracks include "Sounds Of Goodbye", "Tell Me", "Woman's Disgrace", "The Victim", "Love At First Sight", "Wishing", "Louisiana Man". 24 tracks – lots of bonus material. CD

Buck OwensBuck 'Em Vol 2 – The Music Of Buck Owens 1967 to 1975 ... CD
Capitol/Omnivore, Late 60s/Early 70s. New Copy 2CD ... $24.99 26.98
An amazing run of music from the mighty Buck Owens – one of the few country music stars of his time who never made a mis-step at all, and instead gave us nearly two decades' worth of incredible records for Capitol! Some of the best cuts from that stretch are presented here, alongside a handful of rare numbers too – including 7 tracks never issued on CD, and 9 that have never been issued in the US – all as part of a 50-song collection that even includes liner notes from Buck himself! If you only think of Owens in terms of his later fame or stereotypes, you'll be plenty surprised when you dip into these gems – as the music is tight, sharp, witty – and some of the most perfectly-presented country music of the time. Titles include a number of live tracks – including versions of "Somewhere Between You & Me", "Las Vegas Lament", "Tall Dark Stranger", "I'll Still Be Waiting For You", "I've Got You On My Mind Again", and "I've Got A Tiger By The Tail" – plus studio cuts that include "Sweet Rosie Jones", "Happy Times Are Here Again", "41st Street Lonely Hearts Club", "Weekend Daddy", "Great Expectations", "Big Game Hunter", "Monster's Holiday", "Let The World Keep On A Turnin", and "Corn Likker" – plus an outtake from a rare duet with soul singer Bettye Swann, on "Today I Started Loving You Again".

Happy & Artie TraumDouble Back ... CD
Capitol (Japan), 1971. New Copy ... $22.99
Happy and Artie Traum are even more relaxed and laidback here than on their debut album of the year before – recording in their home turf of Woodstock, with a small group of friends helping out on instrumentation from track to track – always keeping the brothers in a balance between singer/songwriter rock, folk, and country! Both Happy and Artie sing, and play acoustic guitar – sometimes with one in the lead, but often in this harmonizing style that's really wonderful – and which gives their music an expressive sound that goes past any easy country rock cliches. Titles include "Confession", "Jacksboro", "Handful Of Love", "Cross Examinator", "Mister Movie Man", and "The Ferryman". (Rock, Folk/Country) CD

Happy & Artie TraumHappy & Artie Traum ... CD
Capitol (Japan), 1970. New Copy ... $22.99
Happy and Artie Traum are part of the farther-flung universe around Bob Dylan and The Band at the end of the 60s – musicians who worked with Bob in New York, and who were living upstate at the time they cut this wonderful debut album – even though the whole thing was actually all recorded down in Tennessee! But maybe that factor is what makes the whole thing sound special – not just some guys trying to fake roots, but actually finding them in a way that's really unique. There's an easygoing flow to their work together – an effortless embrace of country currents and more personal folksy strains – all given a nice focus in the Nashville recording studio, as bits of dobro, fiddle, and steel guitar are used sparingly, but in just the right ways – almost making the record feel like an even more subtle version of The Burrito Brothers. Titles include "Golden Bird", "Uncle Jedd Say", "The Hungry Dogs Of New Mexico", "Rabbit's Luck", "Farmers Almanac", and "State Line". (Rock, Folk/Country) CD
