Fairport ConventionFirst Album (with bonus tracks) ... CD
Polydor/Universal (UK), 1968. New Copy ... $8.99 11.98
The brilliant first album from Fairport Convention – working here in a sound that's much less fully-formed than in later years, but in a really great way! So many things are different here – the guitars are maybe harder and more electric, the vocals of a young Ian Matthews (as Ian MacDonald) are really wonderful, and even female singer Judy Dyble brings a very different quality to the group than the later work of Sandy Denny! These guys are less straight folk here, and more open to a lot of new ideas – great ideas, and ones that really keep things creative and interesting – and maybe looking forward more musically, than the later (and important) backward look the group would take. Titles include a brilliant remake of Emmitt Rhodes' "Time Will Show The Wiser" – plus "I Don't Know Where I Stand", "Chelsea Morning", "It's Alright Ma It's Only Witchcraft", "One Sure Thing", "M1 Breakdown", and "Jack O'Diamonds". CD features four bonus tracks – "Reno Nevada", "Morning Glory", "If I Had A Ribbon Bow", and "Suzanne". CD

John MartynLondon Conversation (plus bonus track) ... CD
Island/Universal (UK), 1967. New Copy ... $6.99
The incredible debut of John Martyn – a set that's surprisingly spare and stripped-down compared to later work, but which already shows that genius that set Martyn apart from most of his contemporaries! The approach is similar to the style used with contemporaries Bert Jansch and John Renbourn on some of their mid 60s albums – but Martyn's already got this jazzy sensibility in the way he puts the tunes together, which inflects his folksy expressions in ways that are more like Nick Drake – although with a very different song structure and lyrical sensibility. John's maybe a bit more confident in his approach, although no less revolutionary – and at a time when more subtle sounds like this would have been lost in the US scene, London Conversation went on to create quite a longstanding ripple on its home turf. Titles include "Who's Grown Up Now", "Fairy Tale Lullaby", "London Conversation", "Sandy Grey", "Ballad Of An Elder Woman", "Cocain", "Back To Stay", and "This Time". CD also features the bonus track "She Moved Through The Fair". (Rock, Folk/Country) CD

✨✧ John MartynBless The Weather (with bonus tracks) ... CD
Island/Universal (UK), 1971. New Copy ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
An album that may well be John Martyn's crowning moment of genius – a time when he soared forward from his spare sound of a few short years ago – and found a way to bring in all these jazzy currents to his music, but all without ever going for a style that was ever over-arranged or commercially produced! Martyn's voice is amazing – completely captivating, and full of all these wonderful twists and turns – as are his guitar lines too – never in any sort of overdone way, but with a subtle power that really gives the album the sort of glow that's evoked by the cover image. The set features guest work from Richard Thomposon, Roger Powell, and Beverley Martyn – and titles include "Go Easy", "Bless The Weather", "Sugar Lump", "Walk To The Water", "Just Now", "Head & Heart", "Let The Good Things Come", "Back Down The River", and "Singin In The Rain" – with a good amount of bonus tracks including alternate takes of "Go Easy", "Walk On Water", "Back Down The River", and a single version of "May You Never".

✨✧ Johnny DarrellCalifornia Stop-Over (Japanese paper sleeve edition) ... CD
United Artists/Universal (Japan), 1970. New Copy Gatefold ... Out Of Stock
A beautiful turn in style for Johnny Darrell – a singer who maybe hit kind of a pop/country mode in the 60s – but who here comes across with a nicely deep vibe! The cover image has kind of a lonely feel, and that spirit is definitely in he music too – as Darrell matures into a much better singer than we remember, and picks up elements of the rising country rock world too – a hip vibe that really works well for the songs on the album – which include work by Jackson Browne, Hoyt Axton, Lowell George, and DeWayne Blackwell. Titles include "These Days", "Brother River", "She's Headed For The Country", "Brother River", "Willing", "Mae Jean Goes To Hollywood", "Mama Come N Get Your Baby Boy", and "Meanwhile Back In Memphis". (Rock, Folk/Country) CD
