Fern JonesGlory Road ... CD
Dot/Numero, 1959. New Copy ... $7.99 15.98
Southern hillbilly soul from Fern Jones – a minister, church singer and songwriter with a real feel for the secular shake of 50s Sun Records, honky tonk, and shout blues – a pure evangelical with a worldly groove! Fern worked the gospel circuit of tent and church shows for many, many years – but only recorded two albums, this one for Dot/Paramount. Fern sings in the torch country style of Patsy Cline, often with spare rockabilly-styled guitar and drums backbeat. This album is probably most noteworthy for the classic song "I Was There When It Happened" – co-written by Fern Jones and made famous by Johnny Cash. It's especially legendary because it was the only gospel number Sam Phillips allowed Cash to include on his first LP. But Fern's album is more than worthy of a late discovery – she's a true pioneer, fearlessly blending the Lord's work with the Devil's music – at a time when such poles were anathema for most artists, fans, and record labels alike! Original album tracks include "You Ain't Got Nuthin'", "I Do Believe", "Be Thankful You're You", "I Ain't Got Time", "Let Tomorrow Be" – plus the bonus tracks "When I Meet You", "By And By", "I Don't Care What The World May Do" and "This World Is Not My Home".

VariousHillbillies In Hell Vol X – Country Music's Tormented Testament 1952 to 1974 ... LP
Omni/Iron Mountain Analog Research (Australia), 1950s/1960s/Early 70s. New Copy Gatefold ... $25.99 29.99
Those hillbillies get no end of hell – but maybe that's what they should expect, what with all the cheatin, drinkin, and carryin on! This set follows in the same tradition as all the rest of the fantastic series – looking at themes of loss and remorse in midcentury country music – both in work from big artists in the mainstream, and some of the lesser-known talents who recorded around the edges – and whose work here is especially powerful! Songs have some themes of redemption, but are mixed with some darker moments too – all put together with a great ear for an overlooked tune, and maybe a nice dose of wit as well. Titles include "A Wonderful Time Up There" by Wally Fowler & The Oak Ridge Quartet, "No Grave Is Gonna Keep This Soul" by Charlie Moore & The Dixie Partners, "Fire's A Comin" by Swanee River Boys, "Oh Death" by John Reedy & The Stone Mountain Trio, "Filthy Sea Of Sin" by Ernest Carter & The Hymn Trio, "Are You Insured Beyond The Grave" by Little Jimmy Dickens, "Death's Black Train" by AL Phipps Family, "Conversation With Death" by Clyde Moody, and "Satan Has No Claim On Me" by Joel & Labreeska.
