Merle HaggardTribute to the Best Damn Fiddle Player in the World ... LP
Capitol, Early 70s. Very Good+ ... $5.99
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
(Green label pressing. Cover has a bit of light wear.)

VariousSing It High Sing It Low – Tumbleweed Records 1971 to 1973 ... CD
Tumbleweed/Light In The Attic, Early 70s. New Copy ... $13.99 16.99
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.

✨✧ Buck OwensSings Tommy Collins ... LP
Capitol, 1963. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Buck's tribute to the immortal Tommy Collins (the same man Merle Haggard sang of in his hit "Leonard"). Collins was a very endearing and influential songwriter who moved to Bakersfield in the late 50s and hired the young Buck as a guitarist on his early Capitol recordings. Includes many tracks that became standards for many C&W performers, such as the gorgeous "High On A Hilltop", "If You Ain't Lovin', You Ain't Livin'", "You Gotta Have A License", and "I Always Get A Souvenir". Buck's expressive singing and Don Rich's twangy chicken pickin' do Tommy right! LP, Vinyl record album
(Original pressing. Back cover has a small name.)

Merle HaggardFightin' Side Of Me ... LP
Capitol, 1970. Very Good ... $2.99
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 ... $15.99 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".

Bert JanschBirthday Blues ... LP
Reprise/Superior Viaduct, 1969. New Copy (reissue)... $19.99 24.98
One of the greatest albums ever from UK genius Bert Jansch – cut as a solo set at a time when his fame was rising with the group Pentangle, and somewhat overlooked at the time! Yet all these many years later, we'd rank this one right up alongside important records of the period by Nick Drake – even though Jansch has a style that's completely his own – a bit ancient at times, somewhat bluesy on his guitar inflections, and set to this amazing voice that makes even the simplest lyric come across with a spooky sort of edge. Instrumentation is relatively spare – mostly Bert on guitar, joined by occasional players who include jazzman Ray Warleigh on alto and flute, and Duffy Power on harmonica – shaded in by producer Shel Talmy in ways that remind us of the lighter folksy numbers on the Donovan productions by Mickie Most. Titles include "The Bright New Year", "Tree Song", "Poison", "Wishing Well", "Blues", "I Am Lonely", and "Come Sing Me A Happy Song To Prove We Can All Get Along The Lumpy Bumpy Long & Dusty Road".

✨✧ Sandy BullFantasias For Guitar & Banjo ... LP
Vanguard, 1963. Very Good ... $34.99
Mindblowing minimalism from the legendary Sandy Bull – an artist who might have had acoustic roots in folk music, but who was instantly turning his music into something else – drawing on modal styles of Eastern music, European generations of expression on guitar, jazz-based improvisation – and maybe even prefiguring work to come from composers like Terry Riley and La Monte Young! This album's one of Bull's first, and it's pure genius right from the start – with a side-long performance on the incredible "Blend", which features slight drums from jazz musician Billy Higgins – which Sandy extrapolates these long passages on acoustic guitar. Side two features the fantastic "Carmina Burana Fantay" on banjo – a kind of trans-historical performance that's right up there with John Fahey's best of the decade – alongside equally mindblowing "Non Nobis Domine" and "Little Maggie" – and the closing electric guitar genius of "Gospel Tune". LP, Vinyl record album
(Original pressing – red label, deep groove, nice and clean! Cover has light wear, and some splitting on the spine.)

✨✧ Abner JayTrue Story of Abner Jay ... LP
Mississippi, Late 60s/Early 70s. New Copy ... Just Sold Out!
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
