Johnny CashMan In Black – Live In Denmark 1971 ... CD
Columbia, 1971. New Copy ... $9.99 14.98
A stellar concert from The Man In Black – and a set we'd rank right up there with the prison-based live that Johnny Cash recorded in the 60s! The material here is handled wonderfully – and recorded equally well, too – and in addition to a number of very strong performances by Johnny alone, the set also features some guest appearances that include solo numbers by Carl Perkins, The Carter Family, and The Statler Brothers – as well as Cash performances with most of them, and a few duets with June Carter Cash! Titles include Johnny on versions of "Sunday Mornin Comin Down", "I Walk The Line", "Guess Things Happen That Way", "Man In Black", and "Me & Bobby McGee"; duets with June on "Help Me Make It Through The Night", "Darlin Companion", and "If I Were A Carpenter"; "Matchbox" and "Blue Suede Shoes" by Carl Perkins; "Flowers On The Wall" and "Bed Of Roses" by The Statler Brothers; "Song To Mama" by The Carter Family; and variations of Johnny with other acts on "Rock Of Ages", "No Need To Worry", and "Children Go Where I Send Thee".

Johnny CashOrange Blossom Special ... LP
Columbia, 1965. Very Good ... $8.99
One of the greatest mid 60s Columbia albums by Cash! Orange Blossom Special is probably the most successful of Johnny's LPs in which he balances the profound influence of Bob Dylan with his own rough hewn style for something wholly unique. Cash covers 3 of Dylan's tunes on Orange Blossom, "It Ain't Me Babe", "Mama, You've Been On My Mind", and "Don't Think Twice, It's Alright". Other tracks include "You Wild Colorado", "When It's Springtime In Alaska", "Amen", and "Danny Boy". LP, Vinyl record album
(70s pressing. Cover has light wear.)

Bonnie DobsonGood Morning Rain ... LP
RCA, 1970. Very Good+ ... $19.99
A sweet folk pop set from Bonnie Dobson – recorded at the famous Nashville Sound Studio in Nashville, and eking out every bit of warmth it could provide, most likely in spite of RCA's intent to polish her up for mass consumption! There's a bright and buzzing sound on a number of tunes that caught us off guard – uptempo and fuzzy little groovers that have more of a rockin' lilt – which may have alienated fans of the folk revival stuff she spun, but it sounds groovy to our ears. Really nice stuff! Title include Bonnie's own tunes "Sweet Man" and "You Don't Love" – plus "Light Of Love", "You Don't Know", "Clown", "Do What You Gotta Do", "Factory Girl", "Streets Of London", "A Taste Of Honey" and more. LP, Vinyl record album

Lefty FrizzellTime Out For The Blues ... CD
Southern Routes, 1950s. New Copy ... $12.99 13.99
A superb collection of early Columbia Records material from Lefty Frizzell – all pulled from that time when Lefty was helping revolutionize country music with his unique vocal approach! Frizzell was one of the first to really bend and inflect his vocals – in the way that so many other country singers of the 60s and 70s would later borrow from his influence, but never handle with the kind of clarity of vision you can find in these recordings. While later artists might get lost in their twists and turns, Frizzell was always a visionary singer – and able to put just the right sort of bend to a tune to underscore the subtle, but powerful emotion in the lyrics – a quality that comes through very well on this classic collection of singles and lesser-known gems. Titles include "Don't Let Her See Me Cry", "Time Out For The Blues", "A Few Steps Away", "Looking For You", "Silence", "The Darkest Moment", "Forbidden Lovers", "Cigarette & Coffee Blues", "I Feel Sorry For Me", "So What Let It Rain", and "No One To Talk To But The Blues".

✨✧ Davy Graham & HollyGodington Boundry ... LP
President/Acme (UK), 1970. New Copy (reissue)... $18.99
One of the holy grails of British folk at the end of the 60s – and one of those records that really shows why the UK scene was so different than the US at the time! Davy Graham belongs right up there with John Renbourn or Bert Jansch for his skills on the guitar – maybe jazzier than either at some points, but also able to open up in ways that are both ancient and modern at the same time – maybe especially freewheeling here, in the setting of a smaller indie label like President Records, than he might have been if a bigger label was pushing its agenda. Graham sings a bit – and so does the enigmatic Holly – but the real star is his guitar, both acoustic and electric – as it moves through blues, ragas, jazz, folk, and more – in a set that includes "Nadu Silma", "Forty Ton Parachute", "Dallas Rag", "On Green Dolphin Street", "Afta", "The Preacher", "I'm A Freeborn Man", and "Joe Joe The Cannibal Kid". LP, Vinyl record album
(Limited edition of 500 copies.)

George JonesGeorge Jones Sings (with bonus tracks) ... CD
Southern Routes, Late 50s/Early 60s. New Copy ... $12.99 13.98
Stunning early sounds from the legendary George Jones – material recorded in the years before his bigger fame on the Musicor and Epic labels – and tracks that show that Jones was already a hell of a well-developed talent right from the start! The cuts here sparkle with that trademark George Jones vocal sound – but also have a nice sort of an edge, as George hasn't settled down into that totally smooth approach of later years – and instead here moves between rocking moments and more twang-heavy tunes – served up on an assortment of singles and rare tracks recorded for the Mercury, Starday, and Dixie labels. Titles include "Too Much Water", "Seasons Of My Heart", "Gonna Come Get You", "I'm Ragged But I'm Right", "Eskimo Pie", "No No Never", "Play It Cool", "Take The Devil Out Of Me", "Just One More", and "No Money In This Deal". A hell of a collection – 29 tracks in all! CD
