George BarnesCountry Jazz (colored vinyl pressing) ... LP
Colortone/Modern Harmonic, 1959. New Copy Gatefold (reissue)... $23.99 24.99
An unusual album from guitarist George Barnes – a player whose history predates the bebop years, and who comes across here with a razor-sharp sound in a country-based setting! Make no mistake, the album's definitely a jazz one – but George brings up the twang a bit on some of his phrasing, which also includes electric bass and banjo too – and the group features a second rhythm guitar, acoustic bass, and drums – which leaves plenty of room for fantastic interplay on the strings! The feel is almost like a steel guitar jazz album – and titles include "Rockabilly Boogie", "Jolly Joe Clark", "Rockin The Weasel", "Chicken In The Rough", "Shornin Bread', and "Arky Travels Again".

Fred NeilFred Neil (clear vinyl pressing) ... LP
Capitol/Modern Harmonic, 1966. New Copy ... $24.99 25.99
Amazing stuff – the first album by Fred Neil, one of the 60s' most underrated singer/songwriters! The album is really one of the best places to start with Fred's work – as it's got a rough folksy quality that's really wonderful, and very much in the spirit of Tim Hardin, with whom we'd draw the closest comparison to Neil at the time. The album kicks off with Neil's sublime "The Dolphins" – one of those tracks that's lived far longer than his own music, and which has had the benefit of a number of more famous recordings, but which sounds no better than in Neil's own hands. Other tracks include the original version of "Everybody's Talking" – again far superior to the later one – plus the cuts "Sweet Cocaine", "Green Rocky Road", "Everything Happens", and "Badi-Da".

VariousStrut My Stuff – Obscure Country & Hillbilly Boppers ... CD
Modern Harmonic, 1950s/Early 60s. New Copy ... $13.99 14.99
Fantastic sounds from deep deep in the country music underground of the postwar years – not the hits of the big artists helping to define the sound in the era of full length LPs – but the lesser-known singers who were lucky enough to be able to record a single 45! Yet although these artists are obscure, they're all pretty darn great – and are from a time when the music was really just still coming together – finding a very strong voice in a growing field of interest, but with a vibe that's very different than the more old-time sounds of just a few years before! "Hillbilly" is probably the operative world here – as the singles lean heavily on modes that were more popular before the bigger productions and presentations that ushered in mainstream country changes in the 60s – which means that there's plenty of twang on the guitar, lots of tight small combo instrumentation, and production styles that are more than raw enough for the mood of the tunes. We're huge fans of work from this period, but the collection was still filled with music we've never heard before – artists who don't even show up in the Bear Family or Hillbillies In Hell side of the spectrum – 32 rare gems from Ray Anderson, Tex Cherry, Leon Tassin, Cliff Shepherd, Bill White, Weldon Rogers, Slim Redman, Bobby Rutledge, Freddie Frank, Riley Crabtree, Penny West, Aubrey Bradford, Lou Millet, and many more.

✨✧ Louvin BrothersLove & Wealth – The Lost Recordings ... CD
Modern Harmonic, Early 50s. New Copy 2CD ... Out Of Stock
Just when we thought we'd heard all the brilliance the Louvin Brothers had to give us – they return to the fold and treat us to this fantastic set of unreleased material! The tracks here are all demo recordings, recorded by the Brothers themselves – and even introduced by Ira at the start – and together, they paint a fantastic portrait of their musical genius at its core – that mix of guitar and mandolin, harmony vocals, and a sense of spirit that has maybe never been matched again in country music! And sure, the Capitol material is relatively unadorned, too – but here, you feel like you're peeking in on the boys as they're cooking up their best ideas – never unformed or half-baked, but just served up with an honest, human spirit that's undeniable. 30 tracks in all – and titles include "Two Faced Heart", "Streamline Heartbreaker", "Coo Coo Coo", "Are You Missing Me", "Insured Beyond The Grave", "You'll Forget", "Never Say Goodbye", "Red Hen Boogie", "Unpucker", "It's All Off", "Kiss Me Like You Did Yesterday", "Would You Tear Down Your Castle", and "Bald Knob Arkansas".
