Hank ThompsonHank Thompson At The Golden Nugget ... LP
Capitol, 1961. Very Good ... $9.99
A live album recorded at a Vegas casino, complete with some occasional sound effects from the floor! The feel is nice and spontaneous, and there's some added jazzy horns in the mix – which makes for a nice contrast with the intimate twang of Hank's guitar. Titles include "I Guess I'm Getting Over You", "Honky Tonk Girl", "She's Just A Whole Lot Like You", "Steel Guitar Rag", and "Lost Highway". LP, Vinyl record album
(Original pressing! Cover has some staining along the bottom seam & a small peeled spot.)

Hank ThompsonSongs For Rounders ... LP
Capitol, 1958. Very Good ... $11.99
One of the best honky tonk albums of the late 50s – Hank Thompson doing as he doggone pleases, drinking to and singing for the seedy side! Hank always had a good-natured vocal presence, so you gotta figure it seemed harmless enough to have him take on some of the more ornery songs of period – the ones about roving gamblers, red light districts and otherwise raising cain. Somehow, this seemed to scare the establishment, though! Great Ken Nelson production, too! Titles include "Three Times Seven", "I'll Be A Bachelor Till I Die", "Deep Elm", "Cocaine Blues", "Bummin' Around", and "May I Sleep In Your Arms Tonight Mister?". LP, Vinyl record album
(Original pressing! Cover has a cutout hole & some light wear.)

✨✧ Fairport ConventionLiege & Lief ... LP
A&M, 1970. Used Gatefold ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A record that really has Fairport Convention knocking it out of the park – making a bold turn towards British traditional music, but in a way that imbues these relics with a whole new life of their own! The album came at a key turning point – after an accident that took one of their members, and which almost saw the group disband – but instead turn towards the past for even deeper inspiration than some of their contemporaries, whom they'd covered on other records – at a level that seems to set Sandy Denny free into this sublime territory of her own! Denny's vocals are incredible – like a think unlocked from some ancient vault – and they're given this wonderful focus through the growing complexity of Richard Thompson's guitar work, and the understated brilliance of Ashley Hutchings' bass – both of which bring in these modal inflections that are very 60s, and hardly conceived of as accompaniment with the original tunes. The result is tremendous – tunes that are completely transformed, as a touchstone for generations. Titles include "Matty Groves", "Reynardine", "Come All Ye", "The Deserter", "Tam Lin", and "Crazy Man Michael". LP, Vinyl record album
(Silver label pressing.)

✨✧ Fairport ConventionUnhalfbricking (180 gram pressing) ... LP
Island/Simply Vinyl (UK), 1969. New Copy (reissue)... Temporarily Out Of Stock
The record where it all really came together for Fairport Convention – the point at which the already-great group really stepped forward to become something totally unique! By this point all the key elements are firmly in place – sublime vocals from the great Sandy Denny, amazing guitar and songwriting from the young Richard Thompson, and an overall approach to the music that was way more than folk – in the way the elements are layered together carefully, and build in these hypnotic lines that are completely amazing – almost modal in conception, but much more subtle – and the quality that really makes their work so unique. Titles include "Genesis Hall", "Autopsy", "Cajun Woman", "Percy's Song", "Million Dollar Bash", and "Who Knows Where The Time Goes". LP, Vinyl record album
