Jack MoranAs I See It (with bonus tracks) ... CD
Athena/Omni (Australia), 1970. New Copy ... $16.99 19.98
The album's got a funny sort of title for a singer who's a blind man – but Jack Moran's also a funny sort of singer, too – the artist who wrote the country hit "Skip A Rope", which leads off the set alongside lots of Jack's other great tunes! Moran's got a razor-sharp wit, and is part of that new wave of late 60s songwriters who were really starting to tell it like it is – get past the blue-tinged country cliches of a few years before, and instead come across with a confident look at the mixed message and mishaps of contemporary society! That approach is heard most famously on the previous-mentioned hit, but Moran follows it with loads of other great material – including "Chicken Truck Driver", "Teenage Kids Of Today", "Tommy's Doll", "A Day In The Life Of A Working Man", and "None Of My Business". CD also features a number of bonus tracks – including "The Welfare Check", "Big Brother Is Watching You", and 45 versions of "Skip A Rope" and "Tommy's Doll". CD

✨✧ Karen Dalton1966 (plus download) ... LP
Delmore, 1966. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
The third in a series of unearthed archival release of treasures by 60s folk singer, guitarist and banjo player Karen Dalton from Delmore Recordings – and it's also the third completely beautiful and revelatory Karen Dalton release from Delmore Recordings! For years, Dalton was best known by her peers in the early 60s folk community, particularly the Greenwich Village scene, where she was beloved by Dylan and other soon-to-be giants. Thanks in no small part to the great stuff brought to light by Delmore and the stellar Light In The Attic reissues, she's finally getting an audience beyond pivotal fellow musicians, which is truly thrilling. 1966 features songs recorded that year in her cabin in Summerville, Colorado – between the Green Rocky Road recordings of a few years earlier and the recordings that would make up her first official album, which wouldn't be released until '69. She's sometimes accompanied by Richard Tucker on guitar and vocal duets. Karen was infamously self-conscious on stage and in the studio, so these informal home recordings find her at her intimate, soulful best. Includes one the best versions of Tim Hardin's "Reason To Believe" we've ever heard, plus "Katie Cruel", "Cotton Eyed Joe", "Green Rocky Road", "God Bless The Childen", "Other Side To This Life", "Don't Make Promises", "Mole In The Ground", "Misery Blues", "Little Bit Of Rain" and more. Also includes excellent notes by Ben Edmonds. LP, Vinyl record album
(Vinyl version includes and 8" X 10" color portrait plus a code for digital download.)

VariousEighteen Wheelers – Twisted Tales From The Truckstops ... CD
Trailer Park, 1950s/1960s/Early 70s. New Copy ... $12.99 15.99
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.
