✨✧ Bert JanschBirthday Blues ... CD
Transatlantic (UK), 1968. New Copy ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
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".

✨✧ EvensongEvensong (180 gram pressing) ... LP
Philips/Beatball (Korea), 1973. New Copy (reissue)... Out Of Stock
One of those records that should have been a classic – but which maybe never hit the mark at the time because it was too perfect, too far ahead of its generation to score a bigger hit! At one level, Evensong work in the same mix of folk and strings that you might find from some of Joe Boyd's productions over at Island – especially the music of Nick Drake – but there's other currents here that reflect the acoustic hipness on the LA scene a few years before, too – not necessarily country-inspired, but with currents that are more American than usual for UK work of the time. The group are a duo – Tony Hulme and Mike Lawson – but the sound really comes from the fuller arrangements from Mike Moran and Ray Fenwick, who flesh out their core ideas beautifully. Titles include "Smallest Man In The World", "Dodos & Dinosaurs", "I Was Her Cowboy", "Store Of Time", "Rum Runner", "Sweetbriar Road", and "Borderline". (Rock, Folk/Country) LP, Vinyl record album
(Limited edition of 500 copies – beautiful pressing, with great vinyl, cover, and insert!)

✨✧ VariousStarday Dixie Rockabilly Vol 2 ... CD
Starday/Ace (UK), Late 50s. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
Killer cuts from a label that really had its ear to the ground – the young Starday/Dixie label, run by the team of Pappy Daily and Don Pierce – both of whom were becoming a powerhouse force in country music, but could also pick some great rockabilly too! Although the imprint was based in Texas, it handled custom pressings for artists from all around the country – and this collection brings together some real gems that came to the label that way – tracks from the mid-Atlantic and different points in the south – all by young artists who were really on fire with boundless energy and new ideas! There's a nice current of hillbilly in the rockabilly styles here – similar to some of the other Texas or Arkansas productions of the period – and titles include "Got Another Baby" by Lucky Wray, "Rock N Roll Boogie" by Orella & Norella Myers, "Baby I'll Never Let You Go" by The Love Brothers, "The Cats Were Jumpin" by John Worthan, "Dancing To The Rhythm Of A Rock N Roll Band" by Eddie Seacrest & The Rolling Rockets, "I Want My Baby" by Billy Match & The Starfires, "Honky Tonk Stomp" by Hal Payne, "Coffee Baby" by Alton Guyon, "Hot Dog" by Corky Jones, "Why Did You Lie To Me" by Lattie Moore, "You're Gonna Reap What You Sow" by Ray Strong, and the cuts "My Life's Ambition", "Move Around, and "Careful Baby" by Joe Poovey & The Royal Dukes.

✨✧ Willie NelsonTeatro (colored vinyl) (2015 Record Store Day Release) ... LP
Modern Classics, 1998. New Copy 2LP Gatefold (reissue)... Out Of Stock
A truly great later Willie Nelson record – revisiting some of his classics, though this time with the beautifully moody, warm and lived-in production of Daniel Lanois and backing vocals by Emmylou Harris. It's among Nelson's finest full lengths ever, and among our favorite Lanois productions, too. A real masterpiece! Essentially recorded live, in a shuttered movie theater with a 9-piece band, it's got a depth and a mood unlike anything else in Nelson's ouvre. Includes "Ou Es-Tu, Mon Amour? (Where Are You, My Love?)", "I Never Cared For You", "Darkness On The Face Of The Earth", "These Lonely Nights", "The Maker", "Somebody Picked Up My Pieces", "Three Days", "Annie" and more. LP, Vinyl record album
(First time on vinyl, remastered and sounding better than ever – on 2LP gold colored vinyl in a tip-on gatefold sleeve.)
