✨✧ 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come across with some oddly offensive lyrics at points – yet in ways that maybe have some degree of charm, given their outdated ideas.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 ConventionLiege & Lief (2CD deluxe edition – with bonus tracks) ... CD
Island (UK), 1970. New Copy 2 CDs ... $16.99
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 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. This great double CD version includes a bonus disc of alternate studio takes and BBC sessions – 17 tracks on 2CDs! CD

✨✧ 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".

✨✧ 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.
