Darol Anger & Barbara HigbieTideline ... CD
Windham Hill/Adventure Music, 1982. New Copy ... $7.99 15.98
Piano and violin come together beautifully here – the former by Barbara Higbie, the latter by Darrol Anger – who also plays mandolin and cello as well! There's an acoustic balance here that's more jazz than some of the other Windham Hill albums of the time – especially in the music's sense of rhythm and phrasing – and the rich acoustic tones of both players get wonderfully past some of the new age cliches that are too-often wrongly associated with the label – and remind us that at their best, records like these offer up a key flowering of the acoustic underground of the 70s. Mike Marshall plays guest mandolin on one title – and tracks include "Movie", "Tideline", "Above The Fog", "True Story", "Onyame", and "Gemini". Really great 2015 remaster – excellent sound and package – way better than the Windham Hill releases in the 80s! (Jazz, Folk/Country) CD
(Great version – with much better mastering than the previous CD issue!)

Joan BaezBlessed Are ... LP
Vanguard, 1971. Very Good+ 2LP Gatefold ... $5.99
A important record from Joan Baez – one that has the singer expanding her sound, but in all the right possible ways – bringing in some Nashville elements to her folksy roots! The record features some larger backings arranged by producer Norbert Putnam – with bits of strings, The Memphis Horns, and some backup vocals – but most of a focus around the core combo of the album, which includes Charlie McCoy on harmonica, and Pete Wade and Norman Blake on guitars. Titles include "The Night They Drove Old Dixie Down", "Three Horses", "Last Lonely & Wretched", "Lincoln Freed Me Today", "Gabriel & Me", and "Fifteen Months". LP, Vinyl record album
(Cover has light wear.)

✨✧ Bob BrownWall I Built Myself ... CD
Stormy Forest/Tompkins Square, 1970. New Copy Gatefold ... $12.99 13.98
The first of a pair of rare, wonderful records singer-songwriter Bob Brown cut for Richie Haven's Stormy Forest label in early 70s – really soaring stuff that should've made Brown a star! There's a gentleness in spirit on The Wall I Built Myself, both in Brown's lilting voice – which kind of reminds us of young Neil Young at times, though less gruff and gritty – and in Haven's production, which makes great use of piano, violin and viola. The songs are really sweet and engaging, too. Sounds great to this day! Includes "It Takes The World To Make A Feather Fall", "Monday Virus", "First Light", "Winds Of Change", "Selina", "Seek The Sun" and "Vicarus". (Rock, Folk/Country) CD
Also available Wall I Built Myself ... LP 18.99

✨✧ Bob BrownWilloughby's Lament ... CD
Stormy Forest/Tompkins Square, 1971. New Copy Gatefold ... $12.99 13.98
The second of 2 incredible albums by Bob Brown in the early 70s – both produced by Richie Havens and released on Haven's own Stormy Forest imprint at MGM – and both are among the finer folk rock records of the period, making it all the more stunning they've remained so obscure! The lightly soaring feel of his first album carries over into this one, but with just a bit fuller in the string arrangements – but it's airy and intimate all the same. Such wonderful stuff, and never to late to discover. Includes "If I'd Live Alone", "Baby Child", "Willoughby's Lament" (Parts I & II)", "Death In Dreams", "For Pamela", "Light Of Children Come" and more. (Rock, Folk/Country) CD

✨✧ VariousJuicy Delights From The Treasury Of Georgia's Peach Records – 50s & 60s Rockabilly, Boppers, & Wild Instrumentals ... LP
Be! (Germany), Late 50s/Early 60s. New Copy 2LP Gatefold (reissue)... Out Of Stock
A teeny tiny little label from late 50s Georgia – but one that cut some wonderful music in its few short years on the planet! Peach Records issued some sides to bigger labels like Decca or Starday – but at their core, they had a great roster of local talent that included both rockabilly acts and hillbilly boppers – all recorded with a raw, lean sound that still holds up wonderfully over the years! Lots of this work is in that special space between early rock and country – with some of the twang of the latter, but lots of the sneer of the former – and plenty of grit in the grooves to make these sides live again after the passage of decades. The set features notes on the label and the artists, and label scans of most of the rare singles too – and the package features 32 titles that include "Wahoo" by Arnold Bennett, "Red Light" by The Dandies, "The World Belongs To Me" by Olen Little, "The Cats Were Jumpin" by John Worthan, "Rockin The Guitar" by Jay Brown & The Jets, "China Doll" by Dappa Smith, "I'm In A Daze" by Lewis Pruitt & The True Lads, and "You've Always Got A Frown" by Ramblin Red Bailey. (Rock, Folk/Country) LP, Vinyl record album
(Nice heavy vinyl and a small insert inside the cover!)
