✨✧ VariousPolitically Incorrect ... CD
Bear Family (Germany), Late 40s/1950s. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
Prepare to be offended – but in the best possible way – as this mad collection serves up a whole host of postwar tracks in many styles – all of which have a lyrical bent that would hardly be acceptable today! Some cuts are from the mainstream – which might be excused for their insensitive portrayal of subcultures – but other tracks from genres like blues, country, and jazz often come across with some oddly offensive lyrics at points – yet in ways that maybe have some degree of charm, given their outdated ideas. In fact, the collection's maybe a good reminder that things have never been that easy for most folks in the American music scene – that someone's success is often stomping on someone else's idea – in this case handled in a range of subject matter that might offend Chinese Americans, African Americans, women, hillbillies, and a fair bit of other folks too – with subject matter that deals with differences in language, cultures, intelligence, and even driving – plus a sideline of songs that are suspiciously strong on date rape themes. The package comes with the usual great Bear Family presentation – excellent graphics that support the selection of 31 tracks that include "Women Drivers" by The Playmates, "Chinese Rock & Egg Roll" by Buddy Hackett, "How Can You Leave A Man Like This" by Ella Mae Morse, "Squaws Along The Yukon" by Hank Thompson, "No Chemise Please" by Gerry Granahan, "Calling All Cows" by Blues Rockers, "Get Out Of The Car" by Sammy Davis Jr, "Never Trust A Woman" by Red Foley, "I Love Paris" by Screamin Jay Hawkins, "Run For Your Life" by Gary Lewis & The Playboys, "Girl Fifteen" by Floyd Dixon, and "Slap Er Down Agin Paw" by Arthur Godfrey & The Too Fat Trio.

✨✧ Fairport ConventionWho Knows Where The Time Goes – The Essential Fairport Convention (3CD set) ... CD
Island/Universal (UK), Late 60s/1970s. New Copy 3CD ... $12.99
The genius of Fairport Convention knows no bounds – as the group were an ever-vibrant, ever-creative ensemble – often changing membership as much as they experimented with new styles – in a fantastic range that's very well captured on this 3CD set! Fairport are way more than the folk rock outfit that they're most easily identified as – because although the group certainly draws a lot from folk traditions, both ancient and modern, they bring so much more to their music as well – including especially compelling use of electric guitar and bass (the former on many of these tracks by the young Richard Thompson) – and transcendent vocals from Sandy Denny that really helps take the music to a new dimension. The set offers about a decade's worth of recordings by the group – 52 tracks in all – including some more unusual moments, and even some rarer tracks too – a great selection of titles that includes "Sir Patrick Spens", "Fotheringay", "Suzanne", "Chelsea Morning", "Ballad Of Easy Rider", "Quiet Joys Of Brotherhood", "Matty Groves", "Genesis Hall", "The Plainsman", "The Hens March Through The Midden & The Four Poster Bed", "Cropredy Capers", "When First Into This Country", "Farewell Farewell", "Angles Brown", "The Last Waltz", "John Lee", "Breakfast In Mayfair", "Sailor's Alphabet", and "Banks Of The Sweet Primroses".

✨✧ Fred McDowellAlan Lomax Recordings ... LP
Mississippi, 1959. New Copy (reissue)... $11.99
The first ever recordings of Mississippi Fred McDowell – the legendary Alan Lomax Recordings – recorded in Como, Mississippi in September of 1959! It includes songs that would be part of his canon for the rest of his career, mostly just his voice and guitar in raw, beautiful, soul-shaking form. He's got some vocal accompaniment "When The Train Comes Along", plus Fanny Davis on the comb on a couple tunes and a second guitar by Miles Pratcher on a few. Perfection! Includes "Shake 'Em On Down", "Good Morning Little Schoolgirl", "Keep Your Lamps Trimmed And Burning", "Drop Down Mama", "Going Down The River", "Worried Mind Blues", "When The Train Comes Along" and more. (Blues, Folk/Country) LP, Vinyl record album

VariousGunsmoke Vols 1 & 2 – Dark Tales Of Western Noir From A Ghost Town Jukebox ... CD
Stag O Lee (Germany), Late 50s/Early 60s. New Copy ... Just Sold Out!
A cool collection of really oddball numbers – unusual country, offbeat pop numbers, and a fair bit of cuts that have a popcorn groove somewhere down there at the bottom! These aren't the usual sorts of cuts you might expect – and instead, the collection's definitely on the hipper side of the spectrum from the things we hear from the Stag O Lee label – almost like some of the great collections that the Trailer Park label's been putting out of late. The CD combines the first two vinyl volumes for 25 tracks in all: Includes "Come Back Juanita" by Juan Montego & His Habana Sound, "Pale Faced Indian" by Marvin Rainwater, "Satan's Chauffeur" by Jimmy Minor, "Silver Coin" by Ken & Carol Crag, "Watcha Gonna Do" by Hayden Thompson, "The Klan" by The Gatemen, "Mad Witch" by Dave Gardner, "Laughing All Over My Grave" by Ray Stevens, "They Took John Away" by Steve Arlen, "Don't Jump" by Billy Fury, "The Hanging Day" by Warren Smith, "Riding Shotgun" by Danny Welch, "Satan Is Her Name" by Steve King & The Echelons, "Born To Love One Woman" by Ric Cartey, "All I Can Do Is Cry" by Johnny Bond, "Gringo" by El Clod, and "Baby Doll" by The Magnificent Seven.

✨✧ Fairport ConventionFull House (with bonus tracks) ... CD
Island (UK), 1970. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
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

✨✧ 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 thing 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
