Eddy ArnoldEach Road I Take – The 1970 Lee Hazlewood & Chet Atkins Sessions (Love & Guitars/Standing Alone/bonus tracks) ... CD
RCA/Real Gone, 1970. New Copy ... $16.99 18.99
A surprisingly great set of work from countrypolitan giant Eddy Arnold – 1970 sessions that have him both reforging his strengths with producer Chet Atkins, and taking up a whole new groove with the great Lee Hazlewood! The Atkins material can be heard here on the album Love & Guitars – a set that allows Arnold to answer back to all the others who, by that time, were hitting his own sort of mature way of putting over a tune – with backings that are almost more traditionally country than anything that Eddy had been getting on other recent records. The choice of material is great – songs by Merle Haggard, Wayne Thompson, Kris Kristofferson, and others – and titles that include "When The Wind Blows In Chicago", "Shadows Of Her Mind", "Today I Started Loving You again", "Just Enough To Start Me Dreamin", "With Pen In Hand", and "Soul Deep". Producer Lee Hazlewood works with Eddy Arnold on material from the album Standing Alone – a set that almost has Lee taking a tongue-in-cheek approach with strings and larger arrangements – giving Eddy the kind of setting that might have been darkly double-sided if Hazlewood were singing, but which comes across more in familiar Arnold territory overall. Still, there's definitely some nice touches around the edges – and titles include "Closest I Ever Came", "My Way Of Life", "She Believes In Me", "July You're A Woman", "Where Love Has Died", and "Some Lonely Picker". CD also features additional tracks from the same year, including two unreleased outtakes – for a total of 27 titles in all. CD

✨✧ Dottie WestHere Comes My Baby ... LP
RCA, 1965. Very Good ... $3.99
A 60s classic from singer Dottie West – a country artist who almost seems a direct heir to Patsy Cline with her blue-tinged style on the set! Most tracks move in a slow-stepping pace – perfect Chet Atkins production, with heavenly arrangements from Anita Kerr – whose backing vocal group seems to be a fantastic fit for Dottie – really lifting her voice to the heavens on waves of blue! Titles include "Night Life", "Here Comes My Baby", "Mama Kiss The Hurt Away", "Take Me As I Am", "All The World Is Lonely Now", and "I Dreamed Of An Old Love Affair". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Dottie WestHere Comes My Baby/Dottie West Sings ... CD
RCA/Morello (UK), 1965/1966. New Copy ... $13.99
Pair of albums from Dottie West – back to back on a single CD! First up is Here Comes My Baby – a 60s classic from singer Dottie West, a country artist who almost seems a direct heir to Patsy Cline with her blue-tinged style on the set! Most tracks move in a slow-stepping pace – perfect Chet Atkins production, with heavenly arrangements from Anita Kerr – whose backing vocal group seems to be a fantastic fit for Dottie – really lifting her voice to the heavens on waves of blue! Titles include "Night Life", "Here Comes My Baby", "Mama Kiss The Hurt Away", "Take Me As I Am", "All The World Is Lonely Now", and "I Dreamed Of An Old Love Affair". Next up is Dottie West Sings – beautiful blue-tinged work from Dottie – one of the more weepy-eyed country singers of the 60s – and definitely one who's got a different vibe than some of the more badass female talents to emerge in country a few years later! The set's got the slow-loping groove you'd expect from RCA in the 60s – warm, airy production from Chet Atkins – nicely isolated piano or guitar parts, and a gentle flow to the arrangements that allow West to get melancholy on the lyrics, yet never sound too emotionally overindulgent. Titles include "It Just Takes Practice", "No Sign Of Living", "Happiness Lives Next Door", "Gettin Married Has Made Us Strangers", "You're The Only World I KNow", and "When Two Worlds Collide". CD

✨✧ Karen DaltonIt's So Hard To Tell Who's Going To Love You The Best ... LP
Capitol, 1969. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
The 1969 debut studio album from Karen Dalton – one of the most unique voices of the 60s folk scene, and one of the most emotionally rich, blue & soulful – a heroine to many artists to come, and one of the (sadly) very few pieces of music she made in a professional studio she made in her lifetime! The album was made with producer Nikolas Venet, who worked with Fred Neil at the time, and the record shares some of that atmosphere, but Karen's voice is in its own realm. There's a bit of grit in her tone that makes her voice all the more beautiful if you ask us, and her vibrato really preys on the raw emotion. Her choice of material is great, too, with some Leadbelly and Jelly Roll Morton on the blusier side, but those songs come off in a raw, folksy vibe, too. Karen is finally getting her just respect for her voice all these years later, but it needs to be known that she was an excellent 12-string acoustic guitar player, too, and she could also handle the banjo – with additional guitar on the record by Dan Hankin, electric guitar by Kim King, electric bass by Harvey Brooks and percussion by Gary Chester. Titles include "In The Evening (It's So Hard To Tell Who's Going To Love You The Best)", Fred Neil's "Little Bit Of Rain" and "Blues On The Ceiling", "Sweet Substitute", "Ribbon Bow", "I Love You More Thank Words Can Say", "Down On The Street (Don't You Follow Me Down)" and more. LP, Vinyl record album
(Original green label pressing, in amazing shape!)

✨✧ 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.)
