✨✧ Tony SchwartzMusic In The Streets – A Fascinating Collection Of Music & Musicians Recorded On The Streets On New York City ... CD
Folkways, 1957. New Copy ... $12.99 16.99
A vivid audio document of New York City in the late 50s – put together by creative sound recorder Tony Schwartz! The set's one of a few amazing albums put together by Schwartz – who spent a lot of time on the streets with his microphones and recorder, then really got creative putting the whole thing together in the studio – so that there's some good structure, and almost a sense of narrative to the record – yet in a way that also preserves all of the vivid, spontaneous aspects of the "on the street" recordings. Schwartz narrates a bit, includes some interviews, background sounds from certain areas of the city, and a range of performances in styles that run from jazz to folk to gospel and beyond!

VariousCold War Countdown – Country Music Goes To War 1952 to 1972 ... CD
Omni (Australia), 1950s/1960s/Early 70s. New Copy ... $16.99 19.99
A fantastic collection of offbeat country music songs from the postwar years – tunes that begin during the Korean War, end during Vietnam, and embrace a lot of Cold War anxiety in between! As with other titles from this great label – like the Hillbillies In Hell series – there's a great theme at the core, with so many different varieties of songs that we're amazed at how much the compilers were able to dig up! You'll probably recognize a few of these, but most of the tunes are from a pretty deep dig – and even longtime country freaks like ourselves are hearing most of these for the first time. Titles include "Freedom Monkey" by Doc Williams, "Bearded Bandit Of Cuba" by Art & Glenda Davis, "Fallout" by Red Castle, "Ballad Of Two Brothers" by Autry Inman, "Little Boy Soldier" by Wanda Jackson, "Crazy Vietnam War" by Stringbean, "Congratulations" by Arlene Harden, "The Patriot" by Marie Roberson, "The Craziest War Of The Universe" by Jefferson County Bluegrass Boys, and "I'm No Communist" by Grandpa Jones.

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

Daniel BachmanJesus I'm A Sinner ... LP
Tompkins Square, 2013. Near Mint- ... $11.99
Mindbending work from guitarist Daniel Bachman – a player who may well be the John Fahey of the contemporary acoustic generation! Daniel works here mostly in a solo mode – with just a bit of banjo and fiddle at two points on the record – but his richly chromatic approach to the strings of the guitar unlock a whole world of color and sound – a mode that, at one level is rooted in older acoustic traditions – but at another is richly inventive, especially in the way that Bachman unlocks some metallic elements in the strings that bring a sharp edge to his music. Titles include "Jesus I'm A Sinner", "Variation On The Goose Chase", "Blenheim", "Leaving Istanbul 4am", and "Under The Shade Of The Trees". LP, Vinyl record album

Joan BaezJoan Baez ... LP
Vanguard, 1960. Near Mint- ... $7.99
One of the most essential debut albums of the 60s folk revival, and the early 60s in general – the great first album from Joan Baez on the Vanguard label – a masterpiece of emotional interpretation and impeccable folk guitar playing! Joan Baez is arguably more legendary as a figure than she his as a musician, in that she was a leader in a movement, but the singer and musician is what makes the biggest impact on us, and here she is at her finest. She's accompanied by second guitarist Fred Hellerman on about half the songs, which include "Silver Dagger", "East Virginia", "House Of The Rising Sun", "All My Trails", "Wildwood Flower", "John Riley", "Little Moses", "Ek Preso Numero Nueve" and more.

Bobby BareMe & McDill/Sleeper Wherever I Fall/Bare/Down & Dirty ... CD
Columbia/BGO (UK), Late 70s. New Copy 2CD ... $14.99
Four late 70s albums from Bobby Bare – all brought together in a single set! First up is Me & McGill – a really special sort of album from the great Bobby Bare – a set that's a collaborative effort with songwriter Bob McDill, as you can probably guess from the title! Bob gives Bobby tunes that are nicely different than some of the mid 70s material he was recording for RCA – maybe a bit more down to earth, with less easy attempts at wit – and at a level that show a maturing Bare, in styles that are similar to some of the shifts that Merle Haggard was taking at the time. Titles include "If You Think I'm Crazy Now", "Look Who I'm Cheating On Tonight", "The Woman In Every Man's Life", "Tired Of The Road Joe", "You Made A Believer Out Of Me", and "Till I Get On Feet". Sleeper Wherever I Fall is Bobby Bare's first album for Columbia Records – a bit of a return to straighter material than some of his concept records for RCA from a few years back – material that really helps the maturing singer find a way towards some of the adult territory that some of his contemporaries were handling at the time – but all without ever sounding too commercial or mainstream, maybe a shift towards territory of some of the non-outlaw material of David Allen Coe. Titles include "Hot Afternoon", "Goin Up's Easy Goin Down's Hard", "Sleep Tight Good Night Man", "What Did It Get Me", "The Last Time", and "Rodeo Queen". Bare is a record that reunites Bobby with songwriter Shel Silverstein – the talent who really helped him reignite his music at the start of the 70s! The songs here are maybe a bit less concept, or joke-oriented than some of Silverstein's more famous material – a great reminder that Shel can be a hell of a songwriter in more conventional modes – and a few tracks on the record are by other writers too. Throughout it all, that great Bobby Bare vocal approach really makes the best of the songs – titles that include "This Guitar Is For Sale", "Too Many Nights Alone", "Greasy Grit Gravy", "Sing For The Song", and "Yard Full Of Rusty Cars". Down & Dirty is a strong live set from Bobby Bare – a singer we mostly associate with studio work, but who's clearly at home here in front of a crowd! There's maybe some slightly more rockish phrasing in some of the instrumentation – but the live presentation keeps things from ever sounding commercially overdone – and the songs are a mix of material from the kinds of singers who always bring out the best in Bobby Bare – a fair bit from Shel Silverstein, plus more from Bob McDill, Townes Van Zandt, and Kris Kristofferson. Titles include "Some Days Are Diamonds", "Numbers", "Tequila Sheila", "I Can't Watch The Movie Anymore", "Qualudes Again", "Down To My Last Come & Get Me", and "Good For Nothing Blues". CD

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".

Glen CampbellGlen Travis Campbell/I Knew Jesus/I Remember Hank Williams ... CD
Capitol/BGO (UK), 1972/1973. New Copy 2CD ... $8.99 16.99
A trio of early 70s albums from Glen Campbell – all of them a lot more obscure than his hits! Glen Travis Campbell has a cover proclaiming that the set is "a new musical path" – and producer Jimmy Bowen works with bigger backings from Larry Muhuberac to use soaring strings next to the acoustic core, in ways that push Glen into some of the more soulful expressions he had to offer. The approach is a bit hard to describe, but it's different both from country roots, and from Jimmy Webb territory – that majestic Glen Campbell sound rising up nicely – on tunes that include "One Last Time", "I Will Never Pass This Way Again", "Sweet Fantasy", "Running Scared", "Just For What I Am", and "The Last Thing On My Mind". I Knew Jesus is a record that continues the further exploration of Glen Campbell's vocal range – with some mellow fluid moments that are awash in deeper trills, mixed with more upfront tunes that do a great job of unlocking more of the country currents in Glen's talents – a great shift, and one that would come on even more strongly in his mid 70s return to fame. The set includes a great version of the Kinky Friedman song "Sold American" – one we maybe like even better than Kinky's – plus "I Take It On Home", "I Want To Be With You Always", "Give Me Back That Old Familiar Feeling", "You're The One", and "On This Road". On the final album, Glen Campbell takes on the music of Hank Williams – but in a way that often has the sort of dreamy haze that goes with the "I Remember" in the title! The songs are all Hank's, but the presentation isn't gritty honky tonk – and instead uses fuller backings with Glen's lead vocals, almost as if the whole thing were done in the mid 60s by Chet Atkins at RCA! Jimmy Bowen's at the helm, but there's backup singers and fuller strings than before – which really changes up the Campbell takes on tunes that include "Cold Cold Heart", "Half As Much", "Your Cheatin Heart", "I'm So Lonesome I Could Cry", and "You Win Again".

Leon ChappelAutomatic Mama ... CD
Capitol/Bear Family (Germany), Early 50s. New Copy ... $13.99 24.99
Cool Capitol Records hillbilly sessions from Leon Chappel – but music that's done with a very different vibe than some of the other 50s work on the label! Most of the tunes here are pretty stripped-down – rootsy country, but with an ear for jazz, which comes through both in the phrasing of Leon, which almost has western swing echoes – and in some of the work on guitar, fiddle, or piano – instruments used in a setting that's spare enough to get plenty of space in the lineup! In fact, it's probably a bit misleading to say that Chappel has a western swing approach – although he is from Texas, and clearly drank deep in the well of the style - -but comes across with a much more stripped-down style that's mighty nice. The package features 26 tracks from early 50s sessions for Capitol, some unreleased – and titles include "True Detective", "Tell Me Mama", "You Hear Me Talkin", "Don't Dog Me Round", "Double Up & Catch Up", "A True Man's Hard To Find", "What Makes You Hesitate", and "Just A Blue-Eyed Blonde".

Classic sounds from Patsy Cline – and an album that will definitely open up your understanding of her music! Patsy Cline Showcase features a few of the hits you might expect – "Crazy", "I Fall To Pieces", and "Walkin After Midnight" – but it also includes some wider-ranging material that shows where Patsy might have gone, had she continued to make music throughout the 60s. Other titles include "A Poor Man's Roses", "Have You Ever Been Lonely", "The Wayward Wind", "South Of The Border", and "I Love You So Much It Hurts". LP, Vinyl record album
