✨✧ VariousSing It High Sing It Low – Tumbleweed Records 1971 to 1973 ... CD
Tumbleweed/Light In The Attic, Early 70s. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
Really special sounds from a short-lived label – Tumbleweed Records, a company that was conceived in LA, and born in early 70s Denver – perfectly suited to focus on the hipper strands of singer/songwriter material of the time! The vibe here is a bit like the best work on the early Asylum Records, with maybe more of the diversity of Blue Thumb – and, like both of those special imprints, there's an above-the-usual level of quality going on here – great songwriting, understated production, and artists who really feel free to do their thing in the best way possible! Many of the tracks have kind of a homespun vibe, but top-shelf presentation – tight, but never slick – and the occasional twang really brings the right sort of humanity from time to time. Titles include "Turn Of The Century" and "Abyss" by Robb Kunkel, "Colorado" and "Hick" by Danny Holien, "Rosewood Bitters" by Michael Stanley, "Sweet As Spring" and "Do On My Feet" by Dewey Terry, "Late Letter" by Pete McCabe, "Plain Talk" by Arthur Gee, and "Sunday Sherry" by Arthur Gee Whizz Band.

✨✧ Flying Burrito BrothersGilded Palace Of Sin/Burrito Deluxe ... CD
A&M, Late 60s. Used ... $9.99
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

Merle HaggardTribute to the Best Damn Fiddle Player in the World ... LP
Capitol, Early 70s. Near Mint- ... $7.99
This album is Merle Haggard's tribute to Bob Wills, the king of Western Swing. There are several of Wills own songs included in the track list and others that are simply in the Western Swing vein. Some of the titles are "Right Or Wrong", "Brown Skinned Gal", "Misery", "Roly Poly", "Old Fashioned Love", and "Take Me Back To Tulsa". The Strangers sound great and as usual Hag's voice is super; he gets to do a bit of yodeling. LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Stanley BrothersStanley Brothers Starday/King – 1958 to 1965 (4CD set) ... CD
King/Gusto, Late 50s/Early 60s. New Copy 4CD ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
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".

✨✧ Merle HaggardFightin' Side Of Me ... LP
Capitol, 1970. Near Mint- ... $4.99
An album by one of the greatest American songwriters and interpreters who ever lived – the one and only Merle Haggard! Here you get his huge early 70s live album Fighting Side Of Me, best known for the reactionary title tune, quite unfortunately, since it's a really amazing document of Haggard and the Strangers at their all time best. Like most of Merle's live shows throughout the years, it's bookended by some great original tunes like "I Take A Lot Of Pride In What I Am" and "Today I Started Loving You Again", plus a travelogue of 20th Century country music – from the spare sadness of Jimmie Rodgers's "T.B. Blues" to the Western swing of "Corrina, Corrina", to Tommy Collins's "When Did Right Become Wrong", Johnny Cash's "Orange Blossom Special", Hank Snow's "I'm Moving On" and well beyond. All of which is to say it's one of the best live country albums ever recorded for a major label! LP, Vinyl record album

Incredible String BandRelics Of The Incredible String Band ... CD
Elektra/Wounded Bird, Late 60s. New Copy 2CD ... $9.99 18.99
A great overview of the Incredible String Band – early material from the group's first three albums on Elektra, all pulled together in a double-length set that's a perfect introduction to their genius! The core talents here are Mike Heron and Robin Williamson – the founders of the group, and architects of most of the songs – tunes that use a fair bit of the acoustic instrumentation that you'd guess from their name, in an compelling inversion of older Brit folk modes – that same balance between modern and ancient that you'd hear from a few of their hippest contemporaries. The whole thing's great – and we really love to lose ourselves in the music. Titles include "Air", "Job's Tears", "October Song", "Everything's Fine Right Now", "Koeeoaddi Death", "A Very Cellular Song", "Maya", "This Moment", "Way Back In The 1960s", "Painting Box", "Log Cabin Home In The Sky", and "Cousin Caterpillar".

✨✧ 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".

Abner JayTrue Story of Abner Jay ... LP
Mississippi, Late 60s/Early 70s. New Copy ... $13.99
Folk soul guitar player, singer, songwriter, storyteller and genuine character Abner Jay's brilliant home recordings – the first release of his "terrible comedy blues" in far too long – courtesy of the always deep digging Mississippi label! Abner takes on the topical issues of the days with a skewed sensibility that's brilliant, and his singing, the performances and the recording quality aren't really as rough and raw as you might expect, though nowhere even close to manicured and clean sound – it's just right really for the material. Great stuff! Titles include "I'm So Depressed", "Cocaine", "Vietnam", "St James Infirmary Blues", "Cleo", "Woke Up This Morning", "Don't Mess With My Baby", "I'm Georgia Bound" and "The Reason Young People Use Drugs". LP, Vinyl record album
