Fairport ConventionUnhalfbricking (180 gram pressing) ... LP
Island/Simply Vinyl (UK), 1969. New Copy (reissue)... $16.99
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

VariousNew Folk Routes ... CD
Rev-Ola (UK), Late 60s/Early 70s. New Copy ... $3.99
A loose collection of British folk and folk rock from the late 60s – a mix of dreamy acoustic tunes, lightly jazzy ones, and full of chiming songcraft from Richard & Linda Thompson, Nick Drake, Fairport Convention, Traffic, Sandy Denny and more! Some tunes are pretty well known in the broad landscape, and others are fairly deep – some achingly intimate others ready for a hootenanny! Titles include "Hornpipe" by John Locke, "She Moves Through The Air" by Fairport Convention, "Black Jack David" by Incredible String Band, "I Was A Young Man" by Albion Country Band, "When I Get To The Border" by Richard and Linda Thompson, "Audrey" by Mike Heron, "Man Of Iron" by Sandy Denny and more!

✨✧ Nick DrakeBryter Layter ... CD
Island/Ryko, 1970. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
The second album from the legendary Nick Drake – one of those records we could never ever live without – and a true piece of genius that's been turning on generations of listeners since Nick first recorded it back at the start of the 70s! The format is folksy, but the execution is something else entirely – filled with jazzy phrasing, hypnotic lyrics, and arrangements that really go far beyond any cliches or contemporary work you might expect. The great Joe Boyd produced – and really helps give a strong focus to Nick's vocals and guitar – and the cool mix of added instrumentation – which includes organ and celeste from John Cale, flute and alto from Ray Warleigh, piano from Chris McGregor, and guitar from Richard Thompson. Drake's work is impossible to describe adequately, but if you've ever heard him, you probably stopped dead in your tracks the minute you first caught his voice. We still do the same – and it's a pleasure to have this one in stock! Titles include "Fly", "At The Chime Of A City Clock", "Hazy Jane", "Poor Boy", and "One Of These Things First".

✨✧ Fairport ConventionLiege & Lief ... CD
A&M, 1970. Used ... 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". CD

✨✧ Merle HaggardOkie From Muskogee ... LP
Capitol, 1969. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Let's get this straight. Merle Haggard SINGS "Okie From Muskogee" but he is not THE "Okie From Muskogee". Nevertheless, this is the record that put the honky in honky tonk. Merle sure pretended to not like hippies back in '69, and story has it he even refused an invitation to produce Gram Parson's GP album on the basis that Gram was just another damn dirty hippie. Of course that's just a story – Merle simply didn't fancy himself a producer. Okie From Muskogee is pretty much the definitive portrait of the Hag at his most reactionary, and if the ignorant politics of the title track gives us a few goosebumps along the way, it's well worth it to hear him perform some of his best tracks at the very peak of his career. Besides, what's an outlaw if he doesn't scare you a little? Many of the great ones are here, including "Mama Tried", "No Hard Times", "In the Arms Of Love", "If I Had Left It Up To You", "White Line Fever", "Blue Rock", "Okie From Muskogee", and a medley of "Swinging Doors", "I'm A Lonesome Fugitive", "Sing Me Back Home", and "Branded Man".

Capitol, 1961. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
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

✨✧ Hank ThompsonSix Pack To Go ... LP
Capitol, 1966. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A great big barrel of beer drinkin' honky tonk classics from Hank Thompson – one of the flagship honky tonk albums of the 60s! This is Texas swing-modeled, no BS honky tonk – no silly string arrangements or Jordanaires backing vocals in the mix. It's the antidote for all that countrypolitan stuff that was the main claptrap of the time! The great Merle Travis is on guitar for most of the record, too. Essential! Tracks include "Six Pack To Go", "Honky Tonk Town", "Hangover Heart", "Beer Barrell Polka", "Drunkard's Blues", "Bubbles In My Beer", "The Wild Side Of Life", "Warm Red Wine" and more. LP, Vinyl record album
(Rainbow label pressing. Cover has a split top seam and some light stains.)

✨✧ Hank ThompsonSongs For Rounders ... LP
Capitol, 1958. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
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
(UK reissue on Stetson.)
