✨✧ VariousWayfaring Strangers – Cosmic American Music ... CD
Numero, Early 70s. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
The influence of the Byrds, Gram Parsons, and Flying Burrito Brothers knew no bounds back in the day – as you'll hear on this wonderful collection of underground recordings that followed very strongly in their lead! If you think alt-country's only a recent invention, then think again – because way back at the end of the 60s, folks were already starting to come up with their own variant of the sounds of Nashville and Bakersfield – music that's often a bit more gut-wrenching than the mainstream, and which often has those currents of sadness and longing that we love especially strongly in Parsons' records. As usual with Numero, the presentation is wonderful – a special sort of package that features images of all the rare records included, and notes on each individual artist – alongside a set list that includes "Lonesome City" by Black Canyon Gang, "Baby's Back" by Kenny Knight, "To See Her Smile" by Arrogance, "Travelin" by Jimmy Carter & Dallas County Green, "And I Didn't Want You" by Mistress Mary, "Lilly Of The Valley" by Dan Pavlides, "You Can't Make It Alone" by Plain Jane, "Spirit Of The Golden Juice" by FJ McMahon, and "I Know Her Well" by Sandy Harless.

Darol Anger & Barbara HigbieTideline ... CD
Windham Hill/Adventure Music, 1982. Used ... $2.99
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

Chet AtkinsSolid Gold 68/Solid Gold 69 ... CD
RCA/Vocalion (UK), 1968/1969. New Copy ... $16.99
Heavyweight gold from guitarist Chet Atkins – two albums back to back! Solid Gold 68 is a sweet set that has the guitar of Chet Atkins taking on the big hits of the year – with surprisingly groovy results! The arrangers here are Bill Walker and Cam Mullins, and a number of the tunes get a bit more of a 60s bounce than some of Chet's other records – maybe less Nashville and more pop instrumental – not just in the choice of the tunes, but in the way they're carried across! Chet's guitar is still quite upfront in the mix, with that wonderful sound – and titles include "The Sound Of Silence", "Stoned Soul Picnic", "Slick", "Harper Valley PTA", "Light My Fire", and "Grazing In The Grass". Solid Gold 69 follows the formula of some of the Chet Atkins Gold albums from previous years – but also reflects the very groovy changes taking place in music at the time – as Chet moves into a great range of material that moves quite far from his country roots! The setting is all instrumental – with arrangements by Bergen White, John Ragsdale, and Norbert Putnam – and titles include "So What's New", "Son Of A Preacher Man", "Both Sides Now", "Hey Jude", "Aquarius", "Folsom Prison Blues", and "I'll Never Fall In Love Again".

✨✧ VariousSoundalike Kings Present Covers Hits & Misses From The Vaults Of The Legendary Spar Records ... CD
T-Bird (UK), 1960s. New Copy 2CD ... Out Of Stock
Wildly fun knockoff number from the 60s vaults of Spar Records – the Nashville based operation best known as a "soundalike" company – which you could charitably say were paying tribute to the hits of the day or call 'em rip off artists – but it's a remarkably fun either way! Soundalike Kings features wildly flagrant riffs on Motown, dance craze hits and other hugely popular songs and styles of the day, played by master studio musicians who could do whatever they wanted to, and did! Titles include "Where Did Our Love Go" by The New Generation, "Devil In Disguise" by Johnny Wrigley, "Follow That Dream" by Johnny Holiday, "Lovers Who Wander" by Joe Cash", "Slow Twisting" by Leroy Jones, "Roses Are Red" by Cecil Bright, "Dr Feelgood" by Herbert Hunter, "You're Slipping Away" by Gail Majors, "She Cried" by Bill Bailey, "Why Can't You Be Mine" by Connie Landers and much more. 48 tracks on 2CDs!

✨✧ Robbie BashoSeal Of The Blue Lotus ... CD
Takoma/Ace (UK), 1965. New Copy ... $10.99 18.99
A perfect illustration of the genius of guitarist Robbie Basho – a set recorded early in his career, but with music that's light years ahead of most of his contemporaries! Although a set of solo acoustic guitar tracks, the music isn't really folk – nor is it the sort of acoustic underground music that would emerge more strongly in the 70s – and instead, it's got a real edge throughout – lots of odd tones and weird phrasings that almost preface a whole generation of guitar experimentalists like Derek Bailey or Eugene Chadbourne – yet still within a setting that's relatively tuneful overall! Basho's music has this subtle mysticism that we really love – and the solo sounds here are as evocative as the titles – which include "Mountain Man's Farewell", "Seal Of The Blue Lotus", "Sansara In Sweetness After Sandstorm", "Dravidian Sunday", and "Bardo Blues".
