✨✧ Michael ChapmanWindow (with bonus tracks) ... CD
Harvest/Light In The Attic, 1970. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
Maybe our favorite album ever from Michael Chapman – a bit more stripped-down and rootsy than his other Harvest Records classics, but in a really great way! There's a fluid spirit to the music right from the start – a great focus on Michael's vocals and guitar, but support from wonderful bass and drums too – which almost creates a folk funk vibe on some of the album's best tracks – this undercurrent of a gentle groove underneath the acoustic elements, unaugmented by any other orchestrations or strings – with really wonderful vocals from Chapman that rival if not beat most of the US singer-songwriters of the time. There's some nice jazzy elements in his guitar chord changes – almost Nick Drake at points, but rougher – and the whole thing's got a subtle sophistication without ever overstating itself. Titles include "Last Lady Song", "First Lady Song", "Among The Trees", "She Came In Like The 6:15 & Made A Hole In The Wall", and "Landships". CD features two bonus tracks – "The Hobo's Lamentation" and "Never In My Life". (Rock, Folk/Country) CD

✨✧ Charlie RichToo Many Teardrops – The Complete Groove & RCA Recordings ... CD
RCA/Ace (UK), Early 60s. New Copy 2CD ... Out Of Stock
A great look at a really lost legacy in music from Charlie Rich – obscure sides recorded for RCA Records in the early 60s – done after his initial rush of genius on Sun Records, and before his later commercial success on Epic! Charlie's got one of the all-time great voices in pop music – a richness that easily rivals that of Memphis contemporary Elvis Presley, and which never fully got its due at the time – even though labels like RCA and Smash provided Rich with some fantastic material and production! Charlie's work for Smash has been picked up by the cognoscenti in recent years, and we'd honestly put these RCA tracks right up alongside them – with a similar Tennessee blend of soul and rock, rural and urban – all delivered by Charlie's incredibly charming vocal approach, and recorded with a depth that goes way beyond the usual RCA production modes of the time. There's plenty of currents of soul in the mix – even some New York-styled modes, which really work well with Rich – and this 40 track set is the first time this material has ever been pulled together – long-overdue, and a real treat to our ears! Titles include "Like Someone In Love", "Lady Love", "Nice & Easy", "Big Boss Man", "It's All Over Now", "The Grass Is Always Greener", "Now Everybody Knows", "My Mountain Dew", "The Big Build Up", "She Called Me Baby", "Gentleman Jim", "Christmas Greetings", "All Of My Friends Are Gonna Be Strangers", "Is Goodbye That Easy To Say", "Tragedy", "Ten Dollars & A Clean White Shirt", "Tomorrow Night", and "No Room To Dance".

Tim BuckleyGreetings From LA ... LP
Warner/Straight, 1972. Very Good+ ... $7.99
A later effort from Tim Buckley with a bigger sound and more of a straight ahead approach – with a big nod in the groove direction and some R&B creeping in! In lesser hands, Greetings From LA could be considered more of a "commercial" album than the unpredictable stylistic variances of Tim's earlier records, but his vocals and depth of passion keeps it a riveting experience. Rolling boogie piano, some vamping organ, groovy strings, and even some female chorus backing vocals bring elements of 70s soul and juke joint sounds into the mix – while Buckley's emoting is on par with earlier work – even if some of the lyrics are kind of on the bawdy side. Includes "Move With Me", "Get On Top", "Sweet Surrender", "Night Hawkin'", "Devil Eyes", "Hong Kong Bar" and "Make It Right". (Rock, Folk/Country) LP, Vinyl record album
(Non-gatefold Burbank label pressing. Cover has surface wear.)

Dan Hicks & The Hot LicksIt Happened One Bite (widescreen edition – with bonus tracks) ... CD
Warner/Wounded Bird, 1978. New Copy ... $6.99 11.98
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".

Doug KershawSwamp Grass/Douglas James Kershaw ... CD
Warner/Wounded Bird, 1972/1973. New Copy ... $6.99 11.99
Warner Brothers magic from Doug Kershaw – two early 70s albums that really show him opening up his groove! Swamp Grass is a very groovy record from the mighty Doug Kershaw – maybe his entry into the swamp rock genre that so many other southern artists were trying in the early 70s – a mode that might not have been possible without Doug's earlier experiments with his brother Randy! Kershaw's definitely got some of his cajun roots in the mix here – but his vocals and fiddle are also set up alongside some trippier guitar and keyboards, as you might guess from the slightly psychedelic image on the cover – all handled with nicely understated production from Buddy Killen, who helps keep the whole thing moving along, and focused on the best sides of Doug's charms. Titles include a very unusual remake of "Louisiana Man" – plus "Swamp Grass", "Can't Wait Till Tomorrow", "Cajun Funk", "Till I Hit The Ground", "Can't Wait Till Tomorrow", "Isn't That About The Same", and "From A Little Flirt Comes A Big Hurt". Douglas James Kershaw is a strong little record that has Doug Kershaw nicely stretching past the sound of his cajun roots – maybe in an attempt to grab some of the southern rock glory that his earlier work helped encourage! Doug's a great singer, with a nicely deep range – and he gets great production here from Chips Moman and Buddy Killen, two southern studio giants who sweeten the sound with just the right touch of larger arrangements from time to time – but mostly let Kershaw revel in the strong instrumental help he gets from giants like Bobby Emmons, Reggie Young, and Moman himself. Titles include "Willie's Shades", "The Best Years Of My Life", "Louisiana Love Song", "I Had A Good Woman But She Married Lawrence", "Tricks", and "You're Gonna Be Impressed". CD

✨✧ VariousShe's Selling What She Used To Give Away ... CD
Bear Family (Germany), Late 20s/1930s. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
Turns out, the idea of bitches and ho's didn't originate with hip hop – as the hillbilly cats of the 30s were already throwing around plenty of off-color references to the women in their life! Of course, the milieu was quite different – with backing by spare string bands, and lyrics that maybe couched the themes in slightly more guarded manner – but once you start getting into the groove of these cuts, you may well be surprised at how raunchy they can be! The set's handled with the usual very strong Bear Family approach for early country music – right down to the booklet, which includes lyrics for the tracks, plus other notes on the rare singles included in the package. Many of these numbers are western swing, mixed with other styles – and the CD features 28 titles in all – including "Tom Cat & Pussy Blues" by Jimmie Davis, "Somebody's Been Using That Thing" by Milton Brown & His Brownies, "She's Killin Me" by Nichols Brothers, "Feels Good" by Hartman's Heart Breakers, "She's A Hum Dinger From Dingersville" by Jimmie Davis, "Red's Tight Like That" by The Tune Wranglers, "Mouse's Ear Blues" by Cliff Carlisle, and "Everybody's Truckin" by Modern Mountaineers – a tune that definitely seems to switch the "t" for an "f" in many instances of the title's mention!

Bobby BareBird Named Yesterday ... LP
RCA, 1966. Very Good ... $3.99
A rare country concept album – sort of a melancholy lament of a lost hometown, done with bright arrangements on par with his best sounding work of the 60s – with spoken recitations by Bobby. A major precursor to Willie Nelson's semi-narrative classics from the later 60s and 70s! LP, Vinyl record album
(Mono pressing with deep groove. Cover has some ring & edge wear, split spine and bottom seam, and a piece of red tape on the top seam.)
