Flying Burrito BrothersGilded Palace Of Sin/Burrito Deluxe ... CD
A&M, Late 60s. Used ... $6.99
2 Burritos LPs back-to-back on one CD! Gilded Palace Of Sin is truly a country rock masterpiece – one of the greatest rock(ish) albums of the late 60s – with traditionally structured nuggets that still manage to venture fully into the soulful, exploratory capacities of sunny 60s pop. Perfection! Tracks include "Christine's Tune", "Do Right Woman", "Dark End Of The Street", the anti-Vietnam War anthem "My Uncle", "Hot Burrito #1", "Hot Burrito #2" and more! Burrito Deluxe is more of a group effort (Gram Parsons held the reins on the first record), and a slightly less trippy album, and a bit more of a hodgepodge. The record has more of a focus on the roots rock elements than more soaring Gilded Palace. Tracks include "Lazy Days", "Image Of Me", "High Fashion Queen", "Man In The Fog", "Older Guys", Down In The Churchyard", "Wild Horses" and more. (Rock, Folk/Country) CD

Stanley BrothersStanley Brothers Starday/King – 1958 to 1965 (4CD set) ... CD
King/Gusto, Late 50s/Early 60s. New Copy 4CD ... $12.99 15.98
A great introduction to the King Records material of The Stanley Brothers – a nicely-priced 4CD set that's overflowing with classics from one of the best duos in bluegrass! Ralph and Carter Stanley work together perfectly during these years – harmonizing in an incredible way, right up there with The Louvin Brothers or some of their best contemporaries – while also delivering fantastic interplay between Ralph's banjo and Carter's guitar – handled effortlessly, without pyrotechnics – but completely illuminating in relation to the lyrics! The set features 42 tracks in all – and titles include "Chickie's Old Gray Mule", "Bully Of The Town", "How Bad Do I Feel", "Don't Cheat In Our Home Town", "We Shall Rise", "Where We'll Never Grow Old", "Little Darling Pal Of Mine", "A Little At A Time", and "Back Up & Push".

Blue Sky BoysTreasury Of Rare Gems From The Past ... CD
King/Gusto, Late 40s. New Copy ... $6.99 9.98
Some definite gems from the Blue Sky Boys – a duo who recorded early in the country music years of King Records, and who never stayed together long enough to earn the fame of labelmates like The Stanleys or Delmore Brothers! The Boys – Bill and Earl Bolick – have a sound that's wonderfully sweet, almost Louvin-like at times – as they work through both a mix of familiar tunes and spiritual numbers, all with a nicely stripped-down style that feels like it came right from the hills to the King Records studios – with often just their own mandolin and guitar for accompaniment. CD features 16 tracks in all – including "Turn Your Radio On", "Dust On The Bible", "Row Us Over The Tide", "There's Been A Change", "Picture From Life's Other Side", "As Long As I Live", "Tugboat", and "The Last Letter".

JohnstonsBitter Green/Colours Of The Dawn/If I Sang My Song (bonus tracks) ... CD
Transatlantic/BGO (UK), Late 60s/Early 70s. New Copy 2CD ... $14.99
A trio of tremendous albums by The Johnstons – all recorded right around the start of the 70s, at a time when the group was moving into some even more heady territory than before! The Johnstons got their start as a more traditional Irish folk group, but like most of their British Isles contemporaries at the end of the 60s, they were able to find a way to bridge the ancient and the current – by this point mixing traditional material with some very well-chosen contemporary cuts, all of which really flower even more wonderfully in the beautiful male/female vocal style of the group – who can hit a warm blend that's almost like the west coast post-folk modes of the Sunshine Pop generation, but much more cerebral. Production is nicely stripped-down at most points – with a focus on acoustic instrumentation, but also some slight elements on the second two albums that almost remind us of the hipness of Warner/Reprise productions for this sort of material. 2CD set features all three albums, plus 11 more bonus tracks – with titles that include "Jesus Was A Carpenter", "The Story Of Isaac", "Bitter Green", "The Wind In My Hands", "Border Child", "Going Home", "The Life Of The Rover", "Won't You Come With Me", "Colours Of The Dawn", "Brightness She Came", and "Won't You Come With Me". 42 tracks in all!

Jon-MarkSally Free & Easy ... CD
Decca/RPM (UK), Mid 60s. New Copy ... $11.99
Ear-opening work from Jon-Mark – best known as half of the Mark-Almond band with Johnny Almond, but here working as a solo act on his own – in a spare folksy mode that's right up there with some of the best on the Brit folk scene of the 60s! Jon's guitar playing alone is worth the price of admission – at a level that rivals that of Bert Jansch, John Renbourn, or some of the others of the new generation that have gotten more fame over the decades – and he's also a hell of a singer, with a voice that's at once ancient and youthful, maybe more tuned towards some older themes than Dylan politics, but also with a grooviness that echoes a bit of Donovan too. Apart from two tracks here that were issued as a single, all the other material has never been released – making the whole thing a huge discovery, finally given its due. Titles include "Blues For Hobbits", "Paris Bells", "Sally Free & Easy", "Portland Town", "The Vulture", "Love From Afar", "Gotta Make The Future Bright", "The First Time", "Black Girl", "North Country Fair", and "Once I Loved A Girl".

Dan Hicks & The Hot LicksIt Happened One Bite (widescreen edition – with bonus tracks) ... CD
Warner/Wounded Bird, 1978. New Copy ... $10.99 11.98
Pretty great later work from Dan Hicks & The Hot Licks – not the immediately-retro style of their earlier albums, but instead this wonderful blend of so many different jazz and acoustic elements – set forward with a style that's wonderfully groovy overall! There's a hip, scatting vibe to the music that almost puts Hicks in the same 70s territory as Ben Sidran – although maybe a few notches earlier in terms of his inspirations – yet coming across with a breezy warmth that's really beautiful, almost like the shift that Maria Muldaur had made from her trad styles of the 60s to the groove of "Midnight At The Oasis". Fender Rhodes warms the record up at all the right moments – and titles include "Boogaloo Jones", "Cruzin", "Garden In The Rain", "Dizzy Dogs", "Vinnie's Lookin Good", "Lovers For Life", and "Collared Blues". Great CD issue features the full material originally recorded for release as a soundtrack – the tracks on the album, plus 9 more unreleased bonus tracks – including "Gone With The Wind", "Hummin To Myself", "Lulu's Back In Town", "You Belong To Me", and "Walkin My Baby Back Home".
