Joan BaezBlessed Are (2014 Record Store Day Release) ... LP
Vanguard, 1971. New Copy 2LP Gatefold (reissue)... $14.99 22.98
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

Sonny BurnsDevil's Disciple ... CD
Bear Family (Germany), Mid 60s. New Copy ... $19.99 29.99
The great second chapter of Sonny Burns' too-short career in music – material recorded in the 60s, after Sonny had dropped out of music after burning too brightly in the 50s – and tracks that show an even more mature, fully-formed artist overall! The style here is decidedly country, but still with a deep Texas twang and some of the rougher edges that made Burns so great in the early days – and the material here was recorded for TNT, MGM, and United Artists – all different labels that Sonny hopped around while trying to hit big, which never really seemed to happen. Yet the lack of big fame is what also makes these tracks great – under-discovered gems supported by the usual great Bear Family attention to detail and vivid notes and packaging – which makes for a really great set overall. The music often has a nice Bakersfield sort of vibe, especially on some of the later cuts – and titles include "Bricks & Mortar", "Devil's Disciple", "Patches On My Heart", "Leave The Door Open", "Bottom Of The Bottle", "I Left One On The Bar", "Room Next To Mine", and "I'm Losing My Mind".

Bear Family (Germany), Late 50s/Early 60s. Used ... Out Of Stock
Damn great music from the early years of the Bakersfield scene – and a series that's ever bit as great as the That'll Flat Git It collection on Bear Family! Like that series, this one focuses on raw rockers and rare rockabilly – mostly work from the late 50s, and some of it by artists you'd normally know from more country-based recordings! The collection shows that country and rock really mixed it up on the west coast – even in the years before the rise of country rock on the LA scene – and the tunes are as raw as they are twangy, filled with brash, youthful modes throughout. The booklet is 50 full color pages – with loads of notes on each track, and plenty of photos too – and titles include "Teenage Tears" by Cliff Crofford, "Somehow Someway Someday" by The Farmer Boys, "What's Good For The Goose" by Terry Fell, "My Walkin Shoes" by Dusty Payne, "Yer Fer Me" by Fuzzy Owens, "Can't Go On" by Dallas Frazier, "That's Just Where I Oughtta Be" by Billy Bledsoe, ""That's What I Get For Loving You" by Lawton Jiles, and "I've Been Thinking It Over" by The Three Notes.
