✨✧ Dan Hicks & The Hot LicksIt Happened One Bite (widescreen edition – with bonus tracks) ... CD
Warner/Wounded Bird, 1978. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
Pretty great later work from Dan Hicks & The Hot Licks – not the immediately-retro style of their earlier albums, but instead this wonderful blend of so many different jazz and acoustic elements – set forward with a style that's wonderfully groovy overall! There's a hip, scatting vibe to the music that almost puts Hicks in the same 70s territory as Ben Sidran – although maybe a few notches earlier in terms of his inspirations – yet coming across with a breezy warmth that's really beautiful, almost like the shift that Maria Muldaur had made from her trad styles of the 60s to the groove of "Midnight At The Oasis". Fender Rhodes warms the record up at all the right moments – and titles include "Boogaloo Jones", "Cruzin", "Garden In The Rain", "Dizzy Dogs", "Vinnie's Lookin Good", "Lovers For Life", and "Collared Blues". Great CD issue features the full material originally recorded for release as a soundtrack – the tracks on the album, plus 9 more unreleased bonus tracks – including "Gone With The Wind", "Hummin To Myself", "Lulu's Back In Town", "You Belong To Me", and "Walkin My Baby Back Home".

Buck OwensSweet Rosie Jones ... CD
Capitol/Omnivore, 1968. New Copy ... $15.99 16.99
Buck Owens and his Buckaroos at the top of their game – one of the sharpest country music acts at the end of the 60s, and still as brilliant here as they were when they first burst on the scene! In fact, the quality of Buck's work is often so strong, it's easy to miss – maybe in part because he was a rising star on the TV screen – although here, he and the group are still impeccable in terms of presentation – and also songwriting too, as almost every cut on the record is an original from Buck – save two from Bakersfield contemporaries Merle Haggard and Tommy Collins! Titles include "Hello Happiness Goodbye Loneliness", "If I Had Three Wishes", "Sally Mary & Jerry", "How Long Will My Baby Be Gone", "Leave Me Something To Remember You Buy", "Swinging Doors", "Girl On Super Pie Lane", and "The Heartaches Have Just Started".

StringbeanSalute To Uncle Dave Macon ... CD
Starday, Mid 60s. New Copy ... $4.99 7.99
Stringbean's looking a bit more serious than usual on the cover, but maybe that's out of respect for his subject matter here – a set of tunes that were originally associated with Uncle Dave Macon – one of the first stars to emerge in the early days of country music! Like Stringbean, Dave was a hell of a banjo player, and one with a sense of humor too – which makes String's two strengths a perfect fit for such a tribute – although he also takes most of the songs pretty straight, with driving banjo work and forward presentation of the lyrics – less of the asides and interruptions you might know from Macon's classic performances. Regardless of the difference, the album's one of Stringbean's best – and titles include "Ida Red", "Tennessee Farmer", "Pretty Little Widow", "Bully Of The Town", "Over The Mountain", "How Many Biscuits Can You Eat", "Free Little Bird", "Cripple Creek", "You Can't Do Wrong & Get By", "I'm The Man Who Rode A Mule Around The World", and "Hesitation Blues".
