VariousJukebox In Crampsville – 60 Way Out Tunes At A Dime Apiece ... CD
Righteous (UK), Late 50s/Early 60s. New Copy 2CD ... Just Sold Out!
Mad music that you might never have heard otherwise – the fantastic fifth installment in this excellent series inspired by The Cramps – and maybe the deepest-digging so far! There's no holds barred here – both in the source of the material, and the style – and the main criteria just seems to be finding tracks that are as way-out and wild as possible – almost all of which are pulled from the 45rpm underground of the late 50s and early 60s! The "jukebox" in the title is well-placed – as most of these cuts are mad rompers that would really liven up a nightclub – but we also can't imagine there ever being any jukebox as hip as this one, to bring all these fantastic singles together. Titles include "Icky Poo" by The Nomads, "Pimples & Braces" by Ric Gary, "Fling" by The Phaetons, "Laffin Beatnik" by Johnny Beeman, "Bop Crazy Baby" by Vern Pullens, "Boom Stix" by Curley & The Jades, "Cannibal Stew" by Jerry & Mel, "Talk About A Party" by Lee Braun, "Mad Gass" by The Royal Teens, "Mama's Place" by Bing Day, "Mo Taters" by The Earthworms, "I'm The Wolfman" by Round Robin, "A Logger's Wife" by Buzz Martin, and "Strollie Bun" by The Blonde Bomber.

✨✧ 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.

Charlie Moore & Bill NapierTruckin Favorites ... CD
King/Gusto, Mid 60s. New Copy ... $3.99 9.98
Charlie Moore and Bill Napier were a tight bluegrass duo in the 60s – and, almost surprisingly, they were also pretty good at turning in a trucker tune too! Most truck driving country is associated with more electrified, more contemporary country at the time – but these guys have a great approach that makes strong use of their sharp banjo and guitar interplay, which almost feels like the wheels rolling along the road – offset by some great lyrics that almost feel a bit more like they're looking in on the trucker's life from the outside – at least in comparison to singers like Dave Dudley or Red Simpson. Titles include "This Truck & Me", "Bluegrass Truck Driver", "Long White Line", "Lonesome Truck Driver", "Truck Driver's Queen", "Guitar Pickin Truck Driver", "A Truck Driver's Romance", and "Truck Driver's Woman".

PentanglePentagle – The Albums 1968 to 1972 (Pentangle/Sweet Child/Basket Of Light/Cruel Sister/Reflection/Solomon's Seal – plus bonus tracks) (7CD ... CD
Cherry Red (UK), Late 60s/Early 70s. New Copy 7CD ... $59.99
An incredible run of music from a really legendary band – a quintet who were as important to the British folk scene as Fairport Convention – and one who worked with an equally hip sort of vibe! Where that group featured key work from a young Richard Thompson and Sandy Denny, this one features mindblowing guitars from John Renbourn and Bert Jansch – a duo who would already be fantastic enough on their own, but who really open up in the sound of the group – way past their own wonderful albums of just a few years before! Part of the strength of Pentangle likes in the vocals of Jaqui McShee – a singer who's clearly got an ear for jazz, and brings in a strong sense of improvisation and extrapolation – as do both guitarists in the music. The bass is also fantastic – handled by Danny Thompson, who also seems to be a jazzman at heart – given the way he bends and shades things, at a level that no folk group ever would do. Percussionist Terry Cox is the remaining member of the group – nicely understated, and working with Thompson in this way that makes for these cool gentle grooves that Renbourn or Jansch never would have hit on their own. Every record here is a gem – and the set not only includes all six albums (one of which is a double) in these tiny LP-styled sleeves, it also features an insane number of bonus tracks too – and a huge book on the group and their music. 115 tracks in all – including 54 bonus tracks, a number of which are previously unreleased!

VariousWhen Day Is Done – The Orchestrations Of Robert Kirby ... CD
Ace (UK), Early 70s. New Copy ... $14.99 19.98
The cover and title are both a reference to the late Nick Drake – and Drake's music is the way that most people know the talents of Robert Kirby – a fantastic arranger who helped bring a whole new level of melancholy and sophistication to British music at the start of the 70s! Kirby's strings are one of the elements that have always made Drake's Five Leaves Left album so wonderful – and around the same time, he also worked with a number of other English acts in similar modes – that unique post-folk period in which all previous standards and styles were broken open, and presented with a depth that's still strongly appreciated all these many years later! This is the first tribute to Kirby we've ever seen, and it's lovingly put together by Bob Stanley – the man who gave us the excellent English Weather compilation, a great partner to this one. Titles include "Rainbow River" by Vashti Bunyan, "Forest & The Shore" by Keith Christmas, "Ophelia's Song" by Shelagh McDonald, "What Memories We Make" by Dana Gillespie, "Gimme An Inch Girl" by Ian Matthews, "Madonna Blue" by Illusion, "First Light" by Richard & Linda Thompson, "Honour Bright" by Shirley Collins, "Love Is A Funny Thing" by Spirogyra, "White Witch" by Spriguns, "Dancing At Whitsun" by Tim Hart & Maddy Pryor, "I Keep A Close Watch" by John Cale, and "Follow On" by Steve Ashley.
