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 some moderate wear & a cutout hole.)

Robbie BashoTwilight Peaks (with bonus download) ... LP
Smeraldina Rima (Belgium), 1984. New Copy ... $24.99
Incredible work from guitarist Robbie Basho – a player who finally seems to be getting the same sort of due as his sometime-labelmate John Fahey! Basho's style is quite different, but equally sublime – this effortless cascading of notes on the acoustic guitar – played at a level that almost feels as if there's a chorus of instrumentalists working together, even though it's just Basho solo – but with this ethereal, laidback quality that never feels gimmicky or show-offy at all. There's a deeply spiritual feel to this record – one of the last that Basho ever made – but never a quality that's hippy dippy or new age, especially for the time. Titles include "Golden Dragon", "Lament For Earth", "Twilight Peaks", "Afternoon & Evening", and "Where Butterflies In Winter Go". LP, Vinyl record album
(Includes bonus download code, too.)

✨✧ VariousNative North America Vol 1 – Aboriginal Folk, Rock, & Country 1966 to 1985 ... LP
Light In The Attic, Late 60s/1970s/Early 80s. New Copy 3LP ... Out Of Stock
A pretty amazing collection of rare work from the Native American underground – not the late 60s/early 70s records that tried to cash in on growing pride for the Native American scene, but obscure Canadian sides that represent a rich array of sounds we've never heard before! The styles here are great – and run from folksy to trippy to surprisingly tuneful – and although the music spans a 20 year space, there's a really solid early 70s approach overall – with production that's never too slick, and a real sense of respect for the singer/songwriters who make the package so great. The whole thing's as much a book as it is a musical collection – as the notes are hugely expansive, over 120 pages with the CD set – and answer a huge amount of questions, and fill in a lot of background detail too. The set features 34 titles in all – with work by names we'd never heard before – Willie Dunn, Sugluck, Willie Thrasher, Lawrence Martin, William Tagoona, Sikmiut, Saddle Lake Drifting Cowboys, Morley Loon, Peter Frank, David Campbell, and others. LP, Vinyl record album
(Limited 3LP set – with a huge 60 page book, great packaging, and more!)

✨✧ Willie NelsonNashville Was The Roughest – 1964 to 1972 (8CD set) ... CD
RCA/Bear Family (Germany), 1960s/Early 70s. New Copy 8CDs Book ... Out Of Stock
Seminal sounds from the great Willie Nelson – and a full collection of all the work that set him onto the path of his later outlaw years fame! The Nelson heard here is a man really finding himself – moving past some earlier roles as a songwriter for others, and some early forays with jazz – into a mode that's definitely country, but which has a heck of a lot more going on too – a wit and wisdom that's maybe even more compelling here, as Willie's still a clean-shaven guy without any cowboy image – and comes across in this philosophical way that's both a surprise for his cleaner-cut image, and the regular RCA country material of the time. The box is overflowing with greatness – 8CDs, and a huge amount of tracks that include all of Willie's RCA work of the period, plus sessions for Monument Records in 1964 – all bundled up with the usual sort of Bear Family booklet that offers a deep look at his career, along with notes on all the sessions too!

✨✧ Ray PriceHonky Tonk Years – Ray Price & The Cherokee Cowboys 1950 to 1966 (10CD set) ... CD
Bear Family (Germany), 1950s/Early 60s. New Copy 10CDs & Book ... Out Of Stock
Wonderful early work from the great Ray Price – cut at a time when he was a hell of a honky tonk hero, and almost single-handedly creating the style of late night, blue-tinged country tunes! The work here is almost all from Ray's killer 50s and early 60s years at Columbia Records – a time when the singer was using his amazing voice to front the Cherokee Cowboys – a group who, like Ray, may have had a western inclination in their fashion sense – but who worked mostly in a subtle twang that really helped redefine the music with a darker, modern current. The lavish box set features a stunning 80 page book – hardcover, oversized, and filled with rare photos and a complete discography, as well as a bio on Ray, and loads of album and record shots too. The 10 CDs feature music that begins with early Bullet Record material by Price – then a wealth of Columbia sides – 266 tracks in all! CD

✨✧ Mac WisemanTis Sweet To Be Remembered – Complete Recordings – 1951 to 1964 (6CD set) ... CD
Bear Family (Germany), 1950s/Early 60s. New Copy 6CDs & Book ... Out Of Stock
Amazing music from the great Mac Wiseman – an artist who was as important to the growth of bluegrass in the 50s as Bill Monroe or the Stanley Brothers – but who doesn't always get his due! Mac's voice is amazing – wonderfully expressive, but in a slyly subtle way – and his range of material here is wonderful, and often surpasses most of the settings in which he worked! A good deal of tracks come from Wiseman's time at Dot Records – where he also acted as their country A&R person – and the set features loads of singles that have never been reissued from the Dot years – plus later Capitol Records tracks, including a full Capitol album that was never released! We've really fallen in love with Mac's music over the years – and this collection does him justice that no other package on the market has before – complete with 164 prime recordings on 6CDs, and a massive heavy book that's filled with images, photos, and rich writings on Wiseman's career by Charles Wolfe and Eddie Stubbs!
