Fairport ConventionFull House (with bonus tracks) ... CD
Island (UK), 1970. New Copy ... $8.99
A full house, and a strong change for Fairport Convention – working here without founder Ashley Hutchings or vocalist Sandy Denny – but finding their way forward through the new strengths of Richard Thompson! Thompson contributed more songs to this album than before, and also joins the lineup for a new vocal sound – one that, without any female singer in the mix, really gives the group a different feel than before – almost a fresh take on some of the territory they'd been moving through on previous records. The vocals are often understated, but in a way that gives the guitars, mandolin, and fiddle even more power – but in a way that's more rocky than folksy, and we mean that in the best way possible. Titles include "Poor Will & The Jolly Hangman", "Walk Awhile", "Doctor Of Physick", "Dirty Linen", "Sloth", and "Sir Patrick Spens". CD features bonus tracks – including "Now Be Thankful", "Bonny Bunch Of Roses", and "Sir B McKenzie's Daughter's Lament". CD

Merle HaggardOkie From Muskogee ... LP
Capitol, 1969. Very Good ... $5.99
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". LP, Vinyl record album
(Green label pressing. Cover has a peeled spot from sticker removal.)

Phil OchsTape From California ... LP
A&M, 1968. Very Good ... $5.99
Phil Ochs really opens up his sound on this one – working with larger arrangements that make the album sound quite different than the stark, angry folk of his Elektra albums – in a way that creates an even more complicated approach to Ochs' themes cynicism and bitterness. Arrangements are by Bob Thompson, Larry Marks, and Ian Freebairn-Smith – but Van Dyke Parks and Lincoln Mayorga are both credited in the notes, and it's their talents we seem to hear more on the record. Includes the great "The War Is Over" and "Tape From California" – plus "Half A Century High", "Joe Hill", "The Harder They Fall", "When In Rome", and "Floods Of Florence". LP, Vinyl record album
(Labels have some marker.)

✨✧ Hank ThompsonHank Thompson At The Golden Nugget ... LP
Capitol, 1961. Very Good- ... Just Sold Out!
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

✨✧ Fairport ConventionLiege & Lief (with bonus tracks) ... CD
Island (UK), 1970. New Copy ... 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". Features two bonus tracks – both previously unissued – "Quiet Joys Of Brotherhood" and "Sir Patrick Spens". CD

✨✧ Fairport ConventionUnhalfbricking (with bonus tracks) ... CD
Island (UK), 1969. New Copy ... 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". Includes two bonus tracks – "Dear Landlord" and "The Ballad Of Easy Rider". CD

✨✧ 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
(Original stereo pressing! Cover has a small bit of splitting on top seam, but is nice overall - and vinyl is very clean.)
