✨✧ Jack MoranAs I See It (with bonus tracks) ... CD
Athena/Omni (Australia), 1970. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
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

✨✧ VariousEighteen Wheelers – Twisted Tales From The Truckstops ... CD
Trailer Park, 1950s/1960s/Early 70s. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
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.
