Darol Anger & Barbara HigbieTideline ... CD
Windham Hill/Adventure Music, 1982. New Copy ... $6.99 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!)

Terry AllenLubbock (On Everything) (deluxe edition) ... CD
Fate/Paradise Of Bachelors, 1978. New Copy 2CD ... $13.99 18.98
Fantastic sounds from Terry Allen – one of the key underground Texas talents who were helping transform the style of country music in the 70s – and one of the few who maybe never fully got his due! Terry's from the same scene as David Allen Coe, Billy Joe Shaver, and Guy Clark, but his music is much more underground than theirs – maybe only ever designed to be put forth in an intimate club setting, late in the night – where the very conversational style of Allen's songs almost make them feel like barroom musings of a cat who's seen a heck of a lot of life on this planet, but still very able to peer into the souls of those he comes across. This double-length set is Allen's masterpiece – originally issued on a small pressing back in the 70s, and very much an alt-country relic – but from a time when such a thing didn't even exist. Titles include "Cocktails For Three", "High Plains Jamboree", "Amarillo Highway", "Lubbock Woman", "Rendezvous USA", "The Girl Who Danced Oklahoma", "Truckload Of Art", and "The Pink & Black Song". Great reissue – with corrected sound, and a huge booklet of notes on Allen – with essays by David Byrne and others. CD

Marisa AndersonGolden Hour ... CD
Imprec, 2014. Used ... Just Sold Out!
Marisa Anderson's second solo album – and a rare contemporary artist release on the deep, dark and lost archival discoverers at Mississippi Records! Marisa is clearly inspired the music found on archival Mississippi LPs – particularly blues guitar based ones, but it's hardly a clinical old school delta blues revivalist set. The album features 12 improvised guitar and lap steel pieces, no overdubs. Compelling stuff! Titles include "Drop Down", "Night Before Last", "Last Light", "Nebulae", "Golden Hour" and more. CD

✨✧ Duck BakerLes Blues Du Richmond – Demos & Outtakes 1973 to 1979 ... CD
Tompkins Square, Mid 70s. New Copy ... $15.99 16.99
A brilliant slice of early work from guitarist Duck Baker – an artist who's blossomed strongly in the jazz world in recent decades, but who here is maybe closer to the roots of earlier music – and works with this fantastic interweaving of blues, folk, swing, and early jazz modes! The style's very fitting for the overdue-issue of these early tapes on Tompkins Square – and might have even gotten Duck Baker a record on Takoma back in the 70s – and it's no surprise that the second half of the material was recorded by Stefan Grossman in the late 70s, as it shares some resonance with his own work of the time. The first 6 tracks are from demo recordings that Baker made in Richmond, the remaining are handled by Grossman – and apart from guest violin and bass on one track, all others are guitar instrumentals by Duck – and include "Homage To Leadbelly", "Doing the Raccoon", "Allah, Perhaps" "Wolverine Blues", "Les Blues De Richmond", "Fire Down There", "That Rhythm Man", "Little Boy", "The Humors of Whisky", "Sandy River Belle", and "Swedish Jig". (Jazz, Folk/Country) CD
