Hank ThompsonHank Thompson At The Golden Nugget ... LP
Capitol, 1961. Very Good ... $5.99
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

Hank ThompsonSongs For Rounders ... LP
Capitol, 1958. Near Mint- ... $19.99
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
(Rainbow label pressing. Cover has minor splitting.)

Fairport ConventionLiege & Lief ... LP
A&M, 1970. Very Good+ Gatefold ... $19.99
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". LP, Vinyl record album

Fairport ConventionWho Knows Where The Time Goes – The Essential Fairport Convention (3CD set) ... CD
Island/Universal (UK), Late 60s/1970s. New Copy 3CD ... $11.99
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".

Tennessee Ernie FordThis Lusty Land ... LP
Capitol, Late 50s. Near Mint- ... $1.99
An earnest, often largely orchestrated gospel-ish album This Lusty Land is his earliest inspirational foray. If you only know ol' Ern from "Sixteen Tons" and the Davy Crockett theme, or from his appearance as a Branson, MO dwelling ghost on the Simpsons, you're really missing out on a singular vocal talent – a man who cut some of the greatest hillbilly pop and proto-rockabilly vocal tunes ever! 12 tracks in all: "John Henry", "Trouble In Mind", "Chicken Road", "The Rovin' Gambler", "In The Pines", "Nine Pound Hammer", "The Last Letter", and more. LP, Vinyl record album
(Cover is stained in the bottom 2 inches.)

Merle HaggardOkie From Muskogee ... LP
Capitol, 1969. Very Good+ ... $7.99
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".

John MartynMay You Never – The Essential John Martyn (3CD set) ... CD
Island (UK), Late 60s/1970s/1980s. New Copy 3CD ... $11.99
John Martyn's one of those artists we seem to appreciate more and more as the years go by – a British folksinger at the start of his career, but one who was already starting to stretch his wings into so many different styles – really interesting modes that definitely took off once the 70s came along! Martyn was of the same generation as Nick Drake, Bert Jansch, and Richard Thompson – and, like all of those giants, was already taking folk influences into a very different space – in his case, often bringing in jazzy currents, and developing a surprising affinity for working with Fender Rhodes – which often helped Martyn mature almost into a more serious vocal singer. All his early albums are classics – and highly recommended by us – but this well-priced, 58 track, 3CD set is a wonderful place to start – as it features material from all of John's best albums, plus unusual later work, and even a few unusual versions too. Titles include "London Conversation", "John The Baptist (alt version)", "Glistening Glyndebourne (alt take)", "The Man In The Station (alt take 2)", "Cocain", "Back To Stay", "Stormbringer", "The Glory Of Love", "Solid Air", "May You Never", "Over The Hill (alt take)", "Grace & Danger (inst)", "Acid Rain (Andy Lyden mix)", "The River (apprentice version)", "Lifeline", "Fine Lines", "Ain't No Saint", "Easy Blues/Gentle Blues", and "Bless The Weather". (Rock, Folk/Country) CD
