✨✧ John PrineCrooked Piece Of Time – The Atlantic & Asylum Albums 1971 to 1980 (John Prine/Diamonds In The Rough/Sweet Revenge/Common Sense/Bruised Orange/Pink Cadillac/Storm Windows) (7CD set) ... CD
Atlantic, 1970s. New Copy 7CD ... Out Of Stock
A fantastic run of records – music that firmly established John Prine as one of the most inventive singer/songwriters of the 70s! Prine rose up out of the Chicago folk scene of the 60s – but he soon became something different than just a folk or country singer – even though he was admired strongly by both worlds of music. Instead, John's songs took on this new sense of wit and bite learned from folk, but delivered in a style that was maybe less preachy – but also not as rural as the vibe of country tunesmiths who were changing things up at the time. There's definitely echoes of the work of Kris Kristofferson or Shel Silverstein in Prine's words – but the execution is completely his own, and transforms wonderfully over the course of these records – at a level that shows just how much the singer was able to keep ahead of the pack, and keep his contributions relevant over the years. The box features the full albums John Prine, Diamonds In The Rough, Sweet Revenge, Common Sense, Bruised Orange, Pink Cadillac, and Storm Windows – in LP replica sleeves, with new notes, and poster inserts too.

✨✧ John PrineAsylum Albums (Bruised Orange/Pink Cadillac/Storm Windows) (3LP 180 gram vinyl box set) (2020 Black Friday Release) ... LP
Asylum/Atlantic, Late 70s. New Copy 3LP ... Out Of Stock
A great second chapter in the career of songwriting genius John Prine – his late 70s run of records for Asylum – a perfect place for the new developments both in the ways that Pine would pen a tune, and in the way he'd deliver the material! These records really helped break John past an audience of folk and country – and forever made his mark – and the box features the full three albums Bruised Orange, Pink Cadillac, and Storm Windows – all with original artwork, on heavy vinyl!

✨✧ John PrinePrime Prine – Best Of John Prine (180 gram pressing) ... LP
Atlantic/Rhino, 1976. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
The compilation that capped off a younger John Prine's early years at Atlantic Records – and if it might have come off as a bit prematurely titled at at time given the treasure trove of "best of" level material Prine would record for decades to come, there's no question after all these years ther is plenty of genuinely prime Prine songs here! John's Atlantic albums still stand as some of the finest folk rock ever put out by the label, hislyrics and vocals that distinctive mix of wit and grit, Arif Mardin's production smart enough to keep things spare and intimate when necessary, and to bring in some lusher touches at times. Includes "Sam Stone", "Saddle In The Rain", "Pease Don't Bury Me", "Grandpa Was A Carpenter", "Donald & Lydia", "Illegal Smile", "Sweet Revenge", "Souvenirs", "Come Back To Us Barbara Lewis Hare Krishna Beauregard" and "Hello In There".

John RenbournFaro Annie ... LP
Reprise, 1972. Near Mint- ... $28.99
An album of understated brilliance from the great John Renbourn – a set that mostly just features John on vocals and guitar, working through tunes of a traditional nature – yet delivering a record that's full of tremendously powerful moments! There's none of the hoke here that you might have gotten from a folk revival record from a decade before – and instead, Renbourn's bringing all the amazing new discoveries he and his contemporaries have unlocked in the acoustic guitar, as a way of opening up some of the darker corners and spookier elements of the tunes – none of which should be that strong on their own, but which work together here beautifully. Renbourn gets a bit of help from time to time – vocals from Dorris Henderson, harmonica from Pete Dyer, and drums from Terry Cox – but most of the set is just vocals and guitar, even more timeless in 1971 than it might have been before John plays a bit of sitar and harmonica, too – and titles include "Kokomo Blues", "Little Sadie", "Shake Shake Mama", 'The Cuckoo","Willy O Winsbury", "Faro Annie", and "Come On In My Kitchen". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Hamish ImlachHamish Imlach/Before & After/Live/Two Sides Of Hamish Imlach ... CD
Transatlantic/BGO (UK), Late 60s. New Copy 2CD ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
The first four albums from Hamish Imlach – a fantastic figure from the British folk scene of the 60s, even though his focus here is mostly on Scottish material! Imlach was a mentor to John Martyn and Christy Moore, played with Planxty, and had ties to so many others on the scene – but never fully got his due on this side of the Atlantic – which is a shame, as the material on these records is completely wonderful! Hamish certainly has a sense of wit, but he really balances that with some wonderfully dark material too – mostly traditional tunes re-arranged by Imlach himself, in a mode that paves the way for the directions that a group like Fairport Convention would take in the next few years. The package features four full albums that originally appeared on the Transatlantic label, plus bonus tracks – 46 tracks in all! CD

✨✧ Bert Jansch & John RenbournStepping Stones (aka Bert & John) ... LP
Transatlantic/Vanguard, Late 60s. Near Mint- ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A hell of a collaboration between British legends Bert Jansch and John Renbourn – both working here together to completely redefine the sound of their music for the generation to come! This one album may well hold all the sense of subtle power and possibility that was about to flower in the Brit movement often known as "acid folk" – that reworking of older aesthetics with modern conceptions, and doing so mostly with their work on acoustic guitar – quite a feat, given the stripped-down instrumentation of the set! Bert sings a bit – in that incredible style of his – but the real attraction here is the guitar interplay, which is always fresh, never hokey, neither familiar American folk nor forced singer-songwriter backup material. Titles include a wonderful reworking of Charles Mingus' "Goodbye Pork Pie Hat" – plus "Red's Favourite", "Orlando", "Soho", "Piano Tune", "East Wind", "After The Dance", and "The Time Has Come". LP, Vinyl record album
(Back cover has some light wear, but this is a great copy overall!)
