✨✧ John FaheyJohn Fahey Volume 1 – Blind Joe Death (180 gram pressing) ... LP
Takoma/4 Men With Beards, 1967. New Copy (reissue)... Out Of Stock
The landmark 1967 Takoma version of Blind Joe Death – essentially a revised version of his debut LP – and a hugely influential record! Fahey's bluesy undercurrents showcase his love of early recorded music , but the Fahey's style is purely original. He's got these magical tones that cascade effortlessly off the heavily-plucked strings of his guitar – echoing older blues and folk modes, but never in a way that's stereotypical – and which is already woven through with the kind of sonorities that continued to make Fahey such an important artist over the years. Think of the set as a skewed version of American history – filtered through one mind and one set of hands – and you'll be well on the way to understanding the power of this music. The set features songs penned by Fahey, and redone versions of older material – and tracks include "St. Louis Blues", "Poor Boy Long Ways From Home", "John Henry", "Transcendental Waterfall", "Desperate Man Blues", "Sun Gonna Shine In My Back Door Someday Blues", and "On Doing An Evil Deed Blues".

✨✧ John FaheyJohn Fahey Volume 2 – Death Chants, Breakdowns & Military Waltzes (medieval cover) ... LP
Takoma, 1967. Very Good ... Out Of Stock
A legendary early 60s Takoma record by foremost fingerstyle folk guitar pioneer John Fahey, with his trademark expansions on traditional influences, and all around otherworldly approach to six strings! This was essentially Fahey's second proper LP (hence the Vol 2 designation in the title) and you can hear it's profound influence in latter day outsider folk AN more broadly popular guitarists, from folk, to blues, rock and even jazz – hugely important work! 12 tracks in all: "John Henry Variations", "The Downfall Of The Adelphi Rolling Grist Mill", "Take A Look At That Baby", "Dance Of The Inhabitants Of The Palace Of King Phillip XIV", "America", "Episcopal Hymn", "Sunflower River Blues", "When The Springtime Comes Again", "Stomping Tonight On The Pennsylvania/Alabama Border", "On The Beach At Waikiki" and "Spanish Dance".

✨✧ Bert JanschBirthday Blues ... LP
Reprise/Superior Viaduct, 1969. New Copy (reissue)... Out Of Stock
One of the greatest albums ever from UK genius Bert Jansch – cut as a solo set at a time when his fame was rising with the group Pentangle, and somewhat overlooked at the time! Yet all these many years later, we'd rank this one right up alongside important records of the period by Nick Drake – even though Jansch has a style that's completely his own – a bit ancient at times, somewhat bluesy on his guitar inflections, and set to this amazing voice that makes even the simplest lyric come across with a spooky sort of edge. Instrumentation is relatively spare – mostly Bert on guitar, joined by occasional players who include jazzman Ray Warleigh on alto and flute, and Duffy Power on harmonica – shaded in by producer Shel Talmy in ways that remind us of the lighter folksy numbers on the Donovan productions by Mickie Most. Titles include "The Bright New Year", "Tree Song", "Poison", "Wishing Well", "Blues", "I Am Lonely", and "Come Sing Me A Happy Song To Prove We Can All Get Along The Lumpy Bumpy Long & Dusty Road".

Bert JanschRosemary Lane ... LP
Reprise/Superior Viaduct, 1971. New Copy (reissue)... $10.99 24.98
Tremendous work from Bert Jansch – an album that shows how much he'd evolved in just a few short years – both as a singer and as a musician, and as a completely unique talent on his own! The record has an instantly timeless feel – that mix of ancient inspiration and new freedoms unlocked by the small group of important UK folk musicians of which Jansch was a part – and the format has Bert really going back to the basics of his debut, with just vocals and guitar – but delivered with this incredible new presence that's very different than his work of the mid 60s! There's so many dark, subtle elements going on here – both in the guitar lines and the singing – it might be possible to initially overlook the genius of the record, which keeps on giving and giving for years, over many repeated listenings. Titles include "Tell Me What Is True Love", "A Dream A Dream A Dream", "Sarabanda", "Bird Song", "Sylvie", "Silly Woman", "Nobody's Bar", and "Allman". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ John MartynTumbler (180 gram pressing) ... LP
Island, 1968. New Copy (reissue)... Out Of Stock
A record that's hard to do justice in words – as it's so unusual, so individual, it still stands as one of the best moments of John Martyn's career! Sure, the guy came from folk music, and works here on acoustic guitar alongside his vocals – and sure, he was part of a groundbreaking, free-thinking generation of post-folkies that also included Nick Drake and Donovan – but like those two important contemporaries, there's a sound here that goes beyond easy style or summation – a fantastically fresh approach that's still maybe the best place to open people's eyes to Martyn's genius, even after all these years. The songs are relatively spare – which is great, because the wonderful Harold McNair provides plenty of flute lines throughout – with just a bit of accompaniment from Paul Wheeler on second guitar and Dave Moses on bass – all produced very thoughtfully by the young Al Stewart. Most tunes are originals by Martyn – and titles include "The Gardeners", "A Day At The Sea", "Dusty", "Winding Boy"," Hello Train", "Fly On Home", and "The River".

✨✧ Buck OwensBuck Sings Eagles (10-inch) ... LP
Omnivore, 1976/1978. Near Mint- ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Bakersfield honky tonk pioneer Buck Owens, covering a quartet of the biggest 70s hits of The Eagles – with sessions tailor-made for Buck to sing on Hee Haw – and while the idea might sound crazy, it works really well! As much credit as Buck Owens gets for adhering to the raw, exciting and twangy approach to honky tonk that he helped define, it's worth remembering that he took a lot of chances with material over the years. It's also important to remember that Buck was a Californian – and the Cali country rock groove of the Eagles is something that he could handle pretty easily! His versions are stripped of the precious harmonies and overall glossy sound of The Eagles, but Buck is quite faithful to the songcraft. A leftfield gem of a vinyl EP from Omnivore! Includes "Take It Easy", "Peaceful Easy Feeling", "Lyin' Eyes" and "Tequila Sunrise". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Dan PennNobody's Fool ... LP
Bell/Bear Family (Germany), 1973. New Copy Gatefold (reissue)... $23.99 31.99
A fantastic set from the legendary Dan Penn – an artist who's maybe known more as a songwriter, but who's finally been given his due as a singer over the years! Back in the day, Dan recorded this gem, but it quickly fell between the cracks of the too-wide music business – yet since that time, the album's been wonderfully re-discovered – and hailed as one of the best illustrations of Penn's unique place in southern music – that special space between soul and country that made his contributions extremely important! The set was recorded in Memphis and Nashville, with a very inventive vibe – less straight soul than Penn's material of the 60s, but also not really rock or country, either – thanks partly to the blend of arrangements – which include help from both Bergen White and The Memphis Horns. Almost all titles are originals by Dan – and tracks include "Tearjoint", "Nobody's Fool", "Prayer For Peace", "Skin", "If Love Was Money", "I Hate You", "Ain't No Love", and "Raining In Memphis".

✨✧ Peter WalkerSecond Poem To Karmela – Or Gypsies Are Important ... LP
Vanguard/Light In The Attic, 1968. New Copy Gatefold (reissue)... Out Of Stock
A totally hip instrumental album from Peter Walker – a Vanguard Records treasure that we'd rank right up there with the label's classics from Sandy Bull! Like Bull, Walker has a way of taking older folk instrumentation into richly psychedelic territory – working here on both the Indian sarod, and on acoustic guitar – both played in these long, modal styles – and mixed with light instrumentation from Jim Pepper on flute, John Blair on violin, and Jim Hotep on tabla. The songs are very spare, and very freewheeling – still with a rhythmic core, but also floating free to find their own energy too – but at a level that's not nearly as hippy-dippy as we make that sound! Walker's got these amazing sonic sensibilities – just like Bull – and titles include "Second Song", "Tear", "Southwind", "Barefoot", "Mixture", "Socco Chico", and "Circus Day". LP, Vinyl record album
