JohnstonsBitter Green/Colours Of The Dawn/If I Sang My Song (bonus tracks) ... CD
Transatlantic/BGO (UK), Late 60s/Early 70s. New Copy 2CD ... $15.99
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!

✨✧ VariousFunky Country – Country Funk, Garage Soul, & Some Swinging R&B Oddities (with bonus download) ... LP
PTR (UK), Late 60s/Early 70s. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
A set that's maybe more funk than country – but we mean that in the best possible way! The grooves here are hard and heavy – at a level that hardly needs a love of Nashville for admission – as most of the best elements in the grooves are pulled from funk and soul – and include heavy drums, riffing guitar, and super-strong basslines – all played by blue-eyed groups who might have hit some twang in their other material, but who are right on the money here! Some numbers get a bit trippy while sounding funky – and it might be best to think of the package as more in the rock funk mode overall. Titles include "Flower Child" by Bo Jack, "Lorraine" by Terry Clark, "Undying Love" by Bust, "Lucille" by Hope Inc, "All Of My Life" by Jack Kane, "Fast David & The Wolfpack" by The Embers, "Polk Salad Annie" by Manson Manuel Express, "Stone Born Country Boy" by Big Jim Cartwright, "Mississippi Delta" by Steve Kathy & The Sha-onas, and "Mountain Chops" by Cal Collins Trio.

Robbie BashoLive In Forli – Italy 1982 ... LP
ESP, 1982. New Copy ... $23.99
A breathtakingly beautiful recording of the legendary Robbie Basho – and a much-needed addition to his too-small catalog of albums! Make no mistake, Basho has given us some key records over the years – but his genius was so deep, and his life was so short, it always feels like there needs to be more added to the mix – which is why this album is so important. The set captures Basho at a time when he was working in relative obscurity, but maybe even more amazing than on his early years recording for Takoma Records – a more sophisticated guitar player, working with mindblowing dexterity, while still also following his own spirit in sound – a mix of underground American acoustic modes, with influences from Indian music and classical guitar – yet delivered with a personal style that's completely his own. Robbie vocalizes a bit, but the main focus is on his guitar – and the set includes a number of quite long tracks, and also some spoken introductions by Basho for more tunes, which are very illuminating too. Titles include "California Raga", "German Chocolate Cake", "Redwood Ramble", "Song Of The Stallion", "Grail & The Lotus", "Cathedral Et Fleur De Lis", and "Pavan India". LP, Vinyl record album

VariousEighteen Wheelers – Twisted Tales From The Truckstops ... LP
Trailer Park, 1950s/1960s/Early 70s. New Copy Gatefold ... $16.99
A great collection of work from one of our favorite genres of country music – the trucker song, that fantastic genre that began in the late 30s, then really exploded once the 60s moved in! Most of the cuts here are from that later stretch – a time when Starday and a whole host of other indies were really cashing in on the trucking market – not only cutting countless songs about the cats who drove the big rigs, but also establishing roadside stops as a key place to sell the music too! And while there's some huge hits that really define the genre, this collection does a great job of digging up much more obscure numbers – as honestly, although we love trucking country songs, we'd never heard more than half of these gems. As always with this series, the presentation is as great as the music – with notes and a very vivid package – to support titles that include "Six Cents A Mile" by Billy Deaton, "Truck Driving Jack" by Lloyd Howell, "Truck Driver's Dream" by Ray Salter, "Big Wheels" by Claud Allen, "Big Sam" by Autry Inman, "Trucker's Vitus" by Lonnie Irving, "Truck Driver's Life" by Bobby Edison, "Gear Bustin Sort Of A Feller" by Bobby Braddock, "Truck Stop Number Three" by Dick Mosley, and "Hot Wheels" by Stan Farlow.
