Duck BakerSpinning Song – Duck Baker Plays The Music Of Herbie Nichols (180 gram red vinyl presing) ... LP
Avant/Triple Point, 1996. New Copy (reissue)... $24.99
Guitarist Duck Baker takes on the music of Herbie Nichols – the sometime-overlooked modernist of the postwar years, a player that some folks rank right up there with Thelonious Monk – later given his due with a run of revival projects like this! Nichols' music sounds very different here – less of the sharp percussive angles that a piano might create – and almost more warmly chromatic, through the acoustic guitar readings of the tunes by Baker – himself a very creative player, and really setting himself apart from some of his contemporaries with this project. The album's got equal appeal to both fans of Herbie's mid-century modernism, and the decades of creative acoustic guitar solo material that came before Baker's rise – work by John Fahey, Robbie Basho, and others. Titles include "117th Street", "Portrait Of Ucha", "House Party Starting", "Nick At T's", and "Spinning Song". (Jazz, Folk/Country) LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Terry AllenPedal Steal & Four Corners (LP/3CDs/book – with download) ... LP
Paradise Of Bachelors, Late 80s/Early 90s. New Copy LP, 3CD & Book ... $26.99 32.99
Terry Allen has always been one of the most enigmatic figures in Texas music – but the work included here might well be some of his most compelling – even if it is a bit far from the straighter country of his start! Allen's always been a very narrative songwriter – and here, he takes that form one further – in a series of radio plays and longer audio narratives, most of which intersperse sung passages with spoken bits, sound effects, and beautiful music as well! These aren't any sort of sleepy, too-prosaic works – but instead, the sort of material that's always had us link Allen's music with the books of Barry Gifford or Barry Hannah – instantly evocative, and with a vision for storytelling that's completely captivating – a journey begun on his Juarez album, and really extended here. The special package features the first vinyl appearance of a few of these pieces – and 3CDs of music that contain the complete "Pedal Steel", "Torso Hell", "Bleeder", "Dugout", and "Reunion (A Return To Juarez)". Also features a great 28 page booklet on all the material! LP, Vinyl record album

Billy BrownDid We Have A Party – Honky Tonk Heroes ... CD
Bear Family (Germany), Late 50s. New Copy ... About July 1, 2019 (delayed)
A wealth of work from the great Billy Brown – a singer who's maybe a bit less-remembered than some of his late 50s contemporaries – but one who's a hell of a rocker, and a great country vocalist too! The volume may be one of the best-placed in this excellent Honky Tonk Heroes series from Bear Family – as it really uncovers all the greatness of Billy Brown that we might have missed otherwise – as the singer takes off on a whopping 30 tracks, packaged with full notes on his career and the individual sessions too. The bulk of the music is from the late 50s, but the set also includes a few gems from later years – and titles include "Flip Out", "Run Em Off", "Next", "Did We Have A Party", "Jealous Stars", "Tight Wad", "Trusting Heart", "Rich In Love", "Drunk Drunk Again", "The Last Letter", and "Lost Weekend".

Tim BuckleyLook At The Fool ... LP
DiscReet, 1973. Very Good+ ... $19.99
The last album that Tim Buckley ever gave the world – and a great leaping-off point for speculation about what he might have done, had he not left the planet too soon! Tim's actually beginning to explore a bit of funk in his music here – still using that amazing voice with all of its range from the early Elektra years – but often set to backings that feature heavy drums from Earl Palmer, tight bass from Chuck Rainey, and keyboards from Mike Melvoin – all cats who can be tight, but never slick – and whose groove is more than loose enough to let Buckley direct the whole proceedings. Given that Tim has an occasional raw rasp, and a very offbeat way with his lyrics, the mix of elements is actually not that far from the funk of Betty Davis on her first two albums – with a similar shrug towards any easy genre categorizations. Titles include "Freeway Blues", "Look At The Fool", "Tijuana Moon", "Mexicali Voodoo", "Down In The Street", "Wanda Lou", and "Bring It On Up". (Rock, Folk/Country) LP, Vinyl record album

Sandy BullFantasias For Guitar & Banjo ... LP
Vanguard, 1963. Very Good ... $24.99
Mindblowing minimalism from the legendary Sandy Bull – an artist who might have had acoustic roots in folk music, but who was instantly turning his music into something else – drawing on modal styles of Eastern music, European generations of expression on guitar, jazz-based improvisation – and maybe even prefiguring work to come from composers like Terry Riley and La Monte Young! This album's one of Bull's first, and it's pure genius right from the start – with a side-long performance on the incredible "Blend", which features slight drums from jazz musician Billy Higgins – which Sandy extrapolates these long passages on acoustic guitar. Side two features the fantastic "Carmina Burana Fantay" on banjo – a kind of trans-historical performance that's right up there with John Fahey's best of the decade – alongside equally mindblowing "Non Nobis Domine" and "Little Maggie" – and the closing electric guitar genius of "Gospel Tune".

Jo Ann CampbellBoogie Woogie Country Girl – Juke Box Pearls ... CD
Bear Family (Germany), Late 50s/Early 60s. New Copy ... About September 15, 2019
Jukebox pearls from the great Jo Ann Campbell – a unique singer who occupied a special place between country and pop, but who also had a fairly rocking style as well! Campbell's music here isn't entirely female rockabilly, but it's not far off either – often done with some really bold instrumental touches on guitar and tenor, and vocals from Jo Ann that seem to twang as much as backings! The work has some of the sweeter touches of female pop of the time, but often gets into grittier, more adult sort of vibes – often echoing female R&B singers from the 50s more than the little girl vocalists on the charts. The package is great – very detailed notes that finally get at the full story behind Campbell's career – and tracks are from a variety of labels, and total a whopping 37 in all. Titles include "Duane", "Breaking Up With A Boy", "Tall Boy", "You're Drivin Me Mad", "Beg Your Pardon", "Give Me Five Minutes More", "Nervous", "Donnie", "I Can't Give You Anything But Love", "Motorcycle Michael", "Where Ever You Go", "A Kookie Little Paradise", "Applause To You", "Mama", "Boogie Woogie Country Girl", and "Eddie My Love". (Rock, Folk/Country) CD
