Incredible String BandIncredible String Band/5000 Spirits Or Layers Of The Onion/Hangman's Beautiful Daughter ... CD
Elektra/BGO (UK), Late 60s. New Copy 2CD ... $10.99 19.99
Important early work from The Incredible String Band – three albums in one great package! First up is the first album from the Incredible String Band – a real treasure from the trio of Clive Palmer, Mike Heron and Robin Williamson – who each sing and write, and bring unique charm to their own material! The sound is very folksy, and really lives up to their name – mostly just music on fiddle, banjo, mandolin, and guitar – served up in a blend that both echoes British traditional styles, yet paves the way for new expressions in the acid folk generation to come – especially on the group's original material. The group are really wonderful at this point – with a sound that drew them wide acclaim on both sides of the Atlantic – and titles include "Maybe Someday", "October Song", "When The Music Starts To Play"", "Schaeffer's Jig", "Womankind", "The Tree", "Whistle Tune", "Dandelion Blues", "Good As Gone", and "Footsteps Of The Heron". Next is 5000 Spirits – a UK psychedelic folk gem that finds the group challenging conventions across the board – both artful and inviting, it's wonderful stuff! At this point, Clive Palmer had left, and Mike Heron and Robin Williamson contribute lead vocals with the additional vocalist Licorice also taking lead on a few tunes, the sound is fleshed out with more accompaniment and a rich warmth on a bevy of instruments – guitar, sitar, bowed gimbri, finger cymbals, tamboura, oud, rattles, flute, bass and piano. Includes the lovely and oft-covered "The First Girl I Loved", plus "Chinese White", "No Sleep Blues", "Painting Box", "The Eyes Of Fate", "The Hedgehog's Song", "You Know What I Could Be", "Gently Tender", "Way Back In The 1960s" and more. On Hangman's Beautiful Daughter, The Incredible String Band are paired down to the core duo of Mike Heron and Robin Williamson – using the studio as a most impressive adjunct member of the group at this point! This is an extremely talented pair – each playing myriad instruments – sitar, organ, guitar, hammer dulcimer, harpsichord, gimbri, whistle, pipe, oud, mandolin, mouth harps and more. Previous vocal collaborator Licorice sings on one song, and Dolly Collins and David Snell contribute flute organ, piano and harp – but the main duos incredible way of layering their magic with multitracking in the studio the real masterstroke of the effort. Titles include "Koeoaddi There", "Witch's Hat", "The Water Song", "Swift As The Wind", "Nightfall", "Waltz Of The New Moon", "Three Is A Green Crown" and more. CD

✨✧ ShipContemporary Folk Music Journey ... LP
Elektra, 1972. Very Good+ Gatefold ... $6.99
A surprising late folk entry in the Elektra Records catalog – recorded in the early 70s, and with some sublime production from the great Gary Usher! The sound is definitely contemporary folk, as promised in the title – but there's more of a singer/songwriter sensibility too – more mature songs than straighter folk, made even more so by Usher's production – and harmonies on some of the vocals that almost recall the post-folk world over at Atlantic. Steve Melshenker and Steve Cowan wrote the album, and do most of the vocals – and both play acoustic guitar too – alongside piano, flute, dobro, bass, and cello, which makes for a warm acoustic sound. Titles include "The Ship", "The Order", "The Man", "The Calm", "The Storm", "The Return", and "The Reason". LP, Vinyl record album
(Butterfly label pressing.)

VariousThat'll Flat Git It! Volume 37 – Rockabilly & Rock N Roll From The Vaults Of Capitol Records ... CD
Capitol/Bear Family (Germany), Late 50s/Early 60s. New Copy ... $18.99 20.99
A killer batch of cuts from the early days of rock and roll – and a great collection of work from one of the coolest labels of the 50s! Sure, Capitol Records wasn't the same sort of indie powerhouse as labels like Sun or Atlantic – but the company always did a great job with country music, which made it a key force in helping to push the postwar hillbilly sound into much harder hitting modes! Capitol's production and handling of artists was always great – and producer Ken Nelson also had a great ear for young talents who may not have hit the charts at the label, but who really got a great shot at top-shelf material in a really groovy setting. This package is overflowing with gems that testify to Capitol's importance in the rockabilly and hillbilly years – 35 titles that include "Adult Western" by Bobby Louis, "You're Gonna Have To Bawl That's All" by Ray Parks, "Grizzly Bear" by Jack Scott, "Bessie Baby" by Jerry Reed, "My Lovin Baby" by Nick Greene, "You're There" by Skeets McDonald, "Natural Natural Ditty" by The Jodimars, "Move It On Over" by Rose Maddox, "Baby I Love You" by Del Reeves, "Everybody's Talkin" by Bob Luman, "What'll I Do Call The Zoo" by Darrell McCall, "I Can't Stop Loving You" by Sonny James, "Let Me In There Baby" by Billy Strange, "Flea Brain" by Gene Vincent, "Big Fat Sally" by Ronnie & Roy, and "Wild Streak" by Johnny Fallin. (Rock, Folk/Country) CD
