✨✧ VariousMemphis Rockabillies, Hillbillies, & Honky Tonkers Vol 6 ... CD
Stomper Time (UK), Mid 60s. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
Memphis sounds that go way past the usual – not some of the oft-reissued rockabilly of the late 50s, but instead some really rare work from the following decade – when a host of small indie labels were still going strong, and turning out a huge array of Tennessee talent! The groove here is maybe that post-rockabilly moment when some artists when back to hillibilly styles – the kind of harder-edge cuts that weren't hitting the charts as much as the lush production of big label country tunes – but which showed that the honky tonk spirit was still alive and well! There's definitely more of a country vibe here than previous volumes in this series – but one that really feels more like mid 50s pre-rock material than you'd guess from the time these tracks were recorded. 40 titles in all – with great notes too – and titles include "Too Many Bubbles" by Jay Chevalier, "Everytime I See You" by Sylvia Mobley, "Gonna Be No 1" by Kenny Owens, "Take Me Back To Memphis" by Slim Rhodes, "Midnight Blues" by Charlie Fritts, "You're The Most Hard To Please Woman" by John Temple, "Troy's Boogie" by Troy Collier, and "Where Were You" by Amos Wren.

✨✧ VariousMilk Of The Tree – An Anthology Of Female Vocal Folk & Singer/Songwriters 1966 to 1973 (3CD set) ... CD
Grapefruit (UK), Late 60s/Early 70s. New Copy 3CD ... Out Of Stock
The female voice found a whole new way to flower in the world of folk music during the 60s – a style that helped women get past some of the more standard sultry modes of postwar pop, and hit the kind of righteous currents and deeper themes that helped transform a generation! The moment began with early folkies like Joan Baez and Odetta, then expanded by the end of the 60s to include incredible young talents who were carving out new styles of their own – singers who were inspired by the freedoms and deeper intellectual currents of folk, but who moved into styles that changed strongly with the heady times! This wonderful box set is a great examination of the moment, and really charts its growth – pulling together well-known artist and some lesser-knowns who include some great female singers from the UK. Titles include "Flying Away" by Serpent Power, "Foolish Seasons" by Dana Gillespie, "Light Flight" by The Pentangle, "Please" by Eclection, "Jesus Was A Cross Maker" by Judee Sill, "Who Has Seen The Wind" by The Simon Sisters, "Red Wine & Promises" by Norma Winstone, "Mr Fox" by Mr Fox, "By The Sea" by Wendy & Bonnie, "Come Into The Garden" by Chimera, "Early Morning Blues & Greens" by Diane Hildebrand, "Autumn Lullaby" by Bridget St John, "The Lonely" by Design, "If Not By Fire" by Mandy More, "Autie Aviator" by Beverley & John Martyn, "Mr Rubin" by Lesley Duncan, "Morgan The Pirate" by Mimi Farina, and "Murdoch" by Trees.

✨✧ VariousStax Country ... CD
Stax/Craft, Mid 70s. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
A surprising side of the legendary Stax Records – especially if you only know the Memphis powerhouse as an outlet for funk and soul! There was always a bit of crossover between country and soul – even in the early days, a label like King Records could easily handle both – or a company like Atlantic could find a way to make its soul singers handle country tunes with ease. Yet the approach here is pure country – tracks recorded during the final few years of Stax – at a time when the company was both growing strongly, thanks to the fame of Isaac Hayes and others – and also trying out new ideas to round out the strength of their operation. Given their proximity to Nashville, and the fact that Memphis studios like Sun or Ardent had handled country-styled sounds – the move seemed to be a good one, and definitely comes across here in the quality of the tracks! The music has a nice left-of-Nashville vibe – almost like some of the growing wave from Austin soon to come, but also a bit like the cooler indie 45 country market of the 70s – which is finally getting its due these days. Either way, the sounds here are way past the hits, and way past the more standard modes of the time – and show that Stax Records could bring as much of a magic touch to country as they could to other sounds they recorded. Titles include "Hippie From The Hills" by Roland Eaton, "The River's Too Wide" by Karen Casey, "That Glass" by Eddie Bond, "Sweet Country Music" by Becki Bluefield, "My Girl" by Danny Bryan, "Satisfied Woman" by Paige O'Brian, "All The Love You'll Ever Need" by Cliff Cochran, "A Mom & A Dad For Christmas" by Lee Denson, and "Truck Driver's Heaven" by Roger Hallmark.

✨✧ VariousTake What You Need – UK Covers Of Bob Dylan Songs 1964 to 1968 ... CD
Ace (UK), Mid 60s. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
The music of Bob Dylan, taken in completely new directions – served up here by a host of 60s British singers who offer up versions of the tunes that are quite different than American covers of the time! There's definitely a fair bit of folk in the mix here, but there's also some freer, trippier styles too – and many of these numbers have very different vocal phrasing than the originals – which keeps the material from being slavish copycat tunes, and instead really shows the way that the influence of Dylan was subtly developed as the 60s moved on, to a point where groups might have drawn a big inspiration from the man's songs, but also then opened the door to lots of new territory. But if you're a fan of Dylan's originals, don't worry – there's also plenty here to love – as the craft of the man himself really shines through, and shows that in the right creative hands, his style was not watered down, but augmented in great ways. As usual with Ace, the package is superb – 22 tracks, complete with detailed notes – on titles that include "Love Minus Zero" by Noel Harrison, "Don't Think Twice It's All Right" by The Fairies, "One Too Many Mornings" by Julie Felix, "Down Along The Cover" by Cliff Aungier, "Tears Of Rage" by Country Fever, "Lay Lady Lay" by Sandie Shaw, "To Ramona" by The Alan Price Set, "Visions Of Johanna" by The Picadilly Line, "Tom Thumb's Blues" by Alex Campbell, "Oxford Town" by Three City Four, "If You Gotta Go Go Now" by Manfred Mann, "It's All Over Now Baby Blue" by The Cops N Robbers, "Absolutely Sweet Marie" by The Factotums, and "I'm A Lonesome Hobo" by Julie Driscoll with Brian Auger & The Trinity.

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
