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

Lynn AndersonLynn Anderson Christmas Album (with bonus tracks) ... CD
Columbia/Real Gone, 1971. New Copy ... $13.99 14.98
A sweet country Christmas from Lynn Anderson – a set that may not be as well-known as Holiday records by Johnny Cash or Buck Owens, but which we'd put in a similar high spot in our collection! Lynn does a great job with the material – bringing in just the right sort of "Blue Christmas" tones to make the music more than just schmaltzy pop – and she also contributes one tune of her own, and works with some other unusual tracks that keep the record from just being a rehash of the same old Christmas tunes. Production is by Glenn Sutton, and titles include "Mr Mistletoe", "The Spirit Of Christmas", "Ding A Ling The Christmas Bell", "Soon It Will Be Christmas Day", "Don't Wish Me Merry Christmas", and "A Whistle & A Whisker Away". CD features bonus tracks – "Ding A Ling The Christmas Bell (1971 promo Christmas Seals version)", "Don't Wish Me Merry Christmas (1971 promo Christmas Seals version)", "Don't Wish Me Merry Christmas (1972 promo Christmas Seals version)", and "Frosty The Snowman (1972 promo Christmas Seals version)".

Bobby BareBobby Bare Sings Shel Silverstein Plus (8CD set) ... CD
RCA/Bear Family (Germany), 1970s/Early 80s. New Copy 8CD ... $216.99 249.99
A huge tribute to one of the most important partnerships in country music during the 70s – the vocal talents of Bobby Bare and the offbeat songwriting skills of Shel Silverstein – one that helped both artists really hit their heights during the decade! Bare had cut some great work for RCA during the 60s, but was floundering a bit after a brief stop at Mercury Records at the end of the decade – and Silverstein was a multi-voiced artist who was part of the Chicago folk world, a member of Hugh Hefner's inner circle, and both a cartoonist and a clever wordsmith – but one who never had the right showcase for his own songs. Johnny Cash and a few others sung Silverstein songs – but it was really Bobby Bare who found the right platform for Shel's music – taking the hip Midwestern words into more of a down-home spirit in Nashville – blending things perfectly as Bare really started to explore the format of album-length expression in the 70s. This huge set brings together all the remnants of that partnership – and includes 25 unreleased tracks, plus the full albums Lullabys Legends & Lies, Hard Time Hungrys, Singin In The Kitchen, Great American Saturday Night , Down &Y Dirty, Drink & Crazy, and lots more material – plus a huge 128 page hardcover book that has a look at the career of both artists, lots of photos, lyrics, and session details too! 137 tracks on 8CDs – and a stunning collection!

Bobby BareDrunk & Crazy/As Is/Ain't Got Nothin To Lose/Drinkin From The Bottle Singin From The Heart ... CD
Columbia/BGO (UK), Early 80s. New Copy 2CD ... $15.99
Four full albums from the Columbia Records run by Bobby Bare – packaged here in a single set! Drunk & Crazy is a set that has Bobby Bare flirting a bit with some of the country rock modes that emerged more strongly in the second half of the 70s – fuller rhythms, stronger guitars, and the kind of catchy tunes that helped Bare win over a new audience at the time – with work that's a surprisingly great showcase for the kind of wit he always brought to his music. The approach has some nice echoes of earlier Austin material, which brings out some nice qualities in Bobby's style – and the set features a fair bit of material from previous songwriters that Bobby always worked with – including a number of tracks from Shel Silverstein, and a few more by Bob McDill. The set includes a great take on the Guy Clark classic "Desperados Waiting For The Train" – plus "Drunk & Crazy", "Food Blues", "The World's Last Truck Drivin Man", "Song Of The South, "Bathroom Tissue Paper Letter", and "Watchin TV". Next is As Is – a nice little set that returns Bobby Bare to a more traditionally country-based mode, thanks to production help from Rodney Crowell! The vibe's still a bit contemporary, but nicely laidback at times – and titles include "Let Him Roll", "New Cut Road", "She Is Gone", "Take Me As I Am", "Dollar Pool Fool", and "Summer Wages". Ain't Got Nothin To Lose is a nicely rollicking set from Bobby Bare – material that's much more mature and confident than some of his earliest work, and maybe a bit more in the biting style of some of his late 70s material, post RCA. There's a nice mix of songs on the set – including a remake of "The Old Swimmin Hole", which Bobby recorded in the late 60s – plus "Cold Day In Hell", "I've Been Rained On Too", "If You Ain't Got Nothin", "So Good To So Bad", and "Praise The Lord & Send Me The Money". Last up is Drinkin From The Bottle Singin From The Heart – a set that really returns Bobby Bare to the territory of his revelatory mid 70s recordings for RCA – a set that features plenty of sharp songs penned by Shel Silverstein, and production by Bobby himself! Instrumentation is often nicely restrained, with a nice focus on the kind of witty vocal twists that makes Bare a perfect interpreter of this material – on titles that include "Rodeo Queen", "Me & Jimmy Rodgers", "Three Legged Man", "Drinkin From The Bottle", "Diet Song", "Jennifer Johnson & Me", "Stacy Brown Got Two", and "The Jogger".

Robbie BashoSong of the Avatars – The Lost Master Tapes (5CD set) ... CD
Tompkins Square, Late 70s/Early 80s. New Copy 5CD ... On December 4, 2020
Unheard music from guitar genius Robbie Basho – a selection of tracks that were never issued at the time, all rescued from Basho's archive of over 100 reel to reel tapes! Robbie gave us some groundbreaking records on Fantasy, Vanguard, and Blue Thumb – which established him as one of the most important guitarists of the new acoustic generation to rise up in the 60s, alongside important contemporary John Fahey. But Basho also kept on evolving in his music before his untimely early death in 1986, even though he was often not getting the attention from labels that he deserved – which is why a package like this is so great!

Tim BuckleyLook At The Fool ... LP
DiscReet, 1973. Near Mint- ... $13.99
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/Alternative Fox (UK), 1963. New Copy (reissue)... $18.99
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 Fantasy" 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".

James Burton & OthersCannonball Rag – Early Groups & Sessions ... CD
Jasmine (UK), Late 50s/Early 60s. New Copy ... $13.99
A massive look at the work of guitarist James Burton – a musician who only cut a few records under his own name, but who was hugely important for his session contributions to both rock and country music in the 50s and 60s! Burton's one of those guys for whom the term "picker" was coined – the kind of cat who could show up, guitar in hand, and bring something really special to a session – a strong guitar lead that almost seemed effortless, and which was often the final element to cement the strength of a hit record! This collection focuses on key Burton contributions to the work of a number of different artists, both country and rock – in a set of 35 tracks that includes work by James Wilson & The Jimmie Cats, Maylon Humphries, David Houston Bob Luman, Dale Hawkins, The Shadows, Ricky Nelson, Dorsey Burnette, Tommy Cassel, Bobby Lee Tramwell, The Green River Boys, and The Shacklefords – most of whom are featured here on a few tracks each, all with guitar by Burton.

Glen CampbellGlen Travis Campbell/I Knew Jesus/I Remember Hank Williams ... CD
Capitol/BGO (UK), 1972/1973. New Copy 2CD ... $10.99 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".

Johnny CashOriginal Sun Albums 1957 to 1964 (8CD set) ... CD
Sun/Charly (UK), Late 50s. New Copy 8CD ... $59.99
A massive collection of early work from Johnny Cash – a set that features the bulk of his early work for Sun Records, plus rare material too – all in a book-style format with a nice set of notes and rare images! The music alone is great – as Johnny works here with his initial Tennesse Three combo – very spare, moody, and rhythmic – a superb foil to Johnny's vocals, and his really fantastic sense of a lyric – already fantastic here, right at the start! And Sun Records owner Sam Phillips knew he had a good thing when he had it – because he recorded so much material on Johnny, he was able to keep issuing albums after Cash had moved to Columbia Records – as you'll see here in the package, which references Sun albums up to the 60s. 107 tracks in all – and full artwork reproductions of every record!

✨✧ Lynn CastleRose Colored Corner ... CD
Light In The Attic, 1966. New Copy ... $6.99 15.98
Never-heard sounds from Lynn Castle – a singer who was maybe more famous in 60s LA for her work as a hair stylist – even though she spent her free time turning out really beautiful songs like these! Castle only ever issued one 45 on Lee Hazlewood's label – but the work here is mostly from earlier demos she cut with legendary producer Jack Nitzsche – who wisely leaves Lynn to mostly stand out in the lead on vocals and guitar – which makes for music that's surprisingly dark-tinged overall, and quite different than you might expect from her sexy look on the cover! The vocals are often quite moody – almost in Nico territory, but more tuneful overall – and the songs are incredibly haunting, maybe along the lines of some of the Leonard Cohen material from the early days. Titles include "The Stranger", "The Puppet", "The Forest", "New York", "I'm Getting Tired", "She Thinks She Feels", "Rose Colored Corner", and "Lonesome Lookout". The set also includes both sides of Castle's only single on LHI – produced by Hazlewood, backed by Last Friday's Fire – and titled "The Lady Barber" and "Rose Colored Corner".

✨✧ Guy ClarkOld No 1 ... LP
RCA, 1975. Near Mint- ... Just Sold Out!
The vital debut of Guy Clark – and easily one of the greatest Texa-bred country records of the mid 70s! Guy was already developing a strong pedigree as a songwriter by this point, but much like his peer Billy Joe Shaver, the personal feel of the songs come across in a deeper way, when done by the man himself. He's backed by an impeccable group of musicians, too, including Bob Wills' Texas Playboys fiddler Johnny Gimble, Willie Nelson's go-to harmonica player Mickey Raphael, and harmony vocals by Rodney Crowell, Emmylou Harris and Steve Earle. Includes "Rita Ballou", "LA Freeway", "She Ain't Goin' Nowhere", "A Nickel For The Fiddler", "That Old Time Feeling", "Texas-1947", "Desperados Waiting For The Train", "Like A Coat From The Cold", "Instant Foffee Blues" and "Let Him Roll".
