Johnny CashJohnny Cash at San Quentin ... LP
Columbia/Sundazed, 1969. New Copy (reissue)... $26.99
Johnny returns to prison for another incredible set – a set might be an even more remarkable portrait of the Man In Black at his raucous best than the uber legendary Live At Folsom Prison! Like the Folsom gig, the set was captured by producer Bob Johnston, who also so masterfully recorded Bob Dylan at his most primal. Unlike the Folsom set, in which Johnny was famously accompanied by the Tennessee Three, the San Quentin band was fleshed out to include all of the still performing Carter women, Carl Perkins and the Statler Brothers. Another breathtaking prison recording, featuring the famous version of "A Boy Named Sue" where you hear the crowd going completely nuts. Tracks include "I Walk The Line", "Darling Companion", "San Quentin", "Wanted Man", "Peace In The Valley", "Wreck Of Old 97" and more. LP, Vinyl record album

Howard CrockettMany Moods Of The Mysterious Howard Crockett ... CD
Omni (Australia), Late 60s. New Copy ... $16.99 19.99
A great little collection of work from Howard Crockett – a country singer you may not know by name, but who gave the world the song "Honky Tonk Man", as well as some other classics! Not only is Crockett a pretty obscure singer, the work here is from an even more obscure part of his career – singles issued on the Stop, Charay, and Brownfield labels – plus a full album also issued for the latter – all of which display Crockett as a deep-voice singer with a nicely gritty vibe – much more indie than some of the bigger country acts of the time, who were smoothing out their sound – and perfectly suited to put the right sort of punch in his own tunes, as well as a well-selected batch of other material too. As usual with the Omni label, the whole thing's a fantastic discovery in country music – an artist we might have missed otherwise – presented here with 32 tracks that include "Honky Tonk Man", "Soap & Water", "Gonna Find Me A Bluebird", "I'd Like To Be Everybody For Just One Day", "Man With No Face", "The Law Says", "The Big Cat", "You Can't Get Around To Them All Jack", and "The Times".

✨✧ Abner JayTrue Story of Abner Jay ... LP
Mississippi, Late 60s/Early 70s. New Copy ... Just Sold Out!
Folk soul guitar player, singer, songwriter, storyteller and genuine character Abner Jay's brilliant home recordings – the first release of his "terrible comedy blues" in far too long – courtesy of the always deep digging Mississippi label! Abner takes on the topical issues of the days with a skewed sensibility that's brilliant, and his singing, the performances and the recording quality aren't really as rough and raw as you might expect, though nowhere even close to manicured and clean sound – it's just right really for the material. Great stuff! Titles include "I'm So Depressed", "Cocaine", "Vietnam", "St James Infirmary Blues", "Cleo", "Woke Up This Morning", "Don't Mess With My Baby", "I'm Georgia Bound" and "The Reason Young People Use Drugs".

Eddie One String Jones/Edward HazeltonOne String Blues (with bonus tracks) ... CD
Takoma (UK), 1960. New Copy ... $10.99 18.99
An early album on John Fahey's Takoma label – and a set that maybe feels more like a Folkways record overall – given that it features street recordings of the enigmatic Eddie "One-String" Jones! Jones is a musician who really lives up to his name – by playing blues on this unusual one-stringed instrument of his own creation – which he uses with incredible soul and intonation along with his vocals – really able to work out all these textures and tones that almost make you forget that he's missing the other five strings you'd expect to hear on a guitar. Jones puts his string performance first, and augments it with vocals – on titles that include "One String Three Quartet Banjo Picker", "Come Back Baby", "I'll Be Your Chauffer", "Baby Please Don't Go", and "The Dozens". The album also features similarly spare material from Edward Hazelton – recorded at the same time by Frederick Usher – with an oddly spacious sound to the core instrument, and Hazelton's vocals as well. Titles include "Mocking The Train Mocking The Dogs", Poor Boy Traveling From Town To Town", and "Throw A Poor Dog A Bone". CD features five bonus tracks not on the original album!

Chet AtkinsSolid Gold 68/Solid Gold 69 ... CD
RCA/Vocalion (UK), 1968/1969. New Copy ... $16.99
Heavyweight gold from guitarist Chet Atkins – two albums back to back! Solid Gold 68 is a sweet set that has the guitar of Chet Atkins taking on the big hits of the year – with surprisingly groovy results! The arrangers here are Bill Walker and Cam Mullins, and a number of the tunes get a bit more of a 60s bounce than some of Chet's other records – maybe less Nashville and more pop instrumental – not just in the choice of the tunes, but in the way they're carried across! Chet's guitar is still quite upfront in the mix, with that wonderful sound – and titles include "The Sound Of Silence", "Stoned Soul Picnic", "Slick", "Harper Valley PTA", "Light My Fire", and "Grazing In The Grass". Solid Gold 69 follows the formula of some of the Chet Atkins Gold albums from previous years – but also reflects the very groovy changes taking place in music at the time – as Chet moves into a great range of material that moves quite far from his country roots! The setting is all instrumental – with arrangements by Bergen White, John Ragsdale, and Norbert Putnam – and titles include "So What's New", "Son Of A Preacher Man", "Both Sides Now", "Hey Jude", "Aquarius", "Folsom Prison Blues", and "I'll Never Fall In Love Again".

GoldebriarsGoldebriars ... LP
Epic, 1963. Very Good- ... $4.99
The first true moment of genius from the legendary Curt Boettcher – an early 60s folk-rock set that's already overflowing with the warm harmonies and creative arrangements of his later classics! The Goldebriars boast some incredible vocals in the duo of Sheri and Dottie Holmberg – both of whom take the lead on most tracks here, sometimes singing solo, but often harmonizing beautifully – in a mode that's nearly timeless, but which has some incredible musical touches from Boettcher, who pushes the vocals far from traditional folk mode, into a really unique sound that points the way towards countless post-folk imitators in years to come! Titles include "Long Time Travellin", "No More Auction Block", "Voyager's Lament", "Railroad Boy", "Come Walk Me Out", and "He Was A Friend Of Mine". (Rock, Folk/Country) LP, Vinyl record album
(Mono pressing. Cover has some small stained spots and a name in pen on back.)

Incredible String BandRelics Of The Incredible String Band ... CD
Elektra/Wounded Bird, Late 60s. New Copy 2CD ... $15.99 18.99
A great overview of the Incredible String Band – early material from the group's first three albums on Elektra, all pulled together in a double-length set that's a perfect introduction to their genius! The core talents here are Mike Heron and Robin Williamson – the founders of the group, and architects of most of the songs – tunes that use a fair bit of the acoustic instrumentation that you'd guess from their name, in an compelling inversion of older Brit folk modes – that same balance between modern and ancient that you'd hear from a few of their hippest contemporaries. The whole thing's great – and we really love to lose ourselves in the music. Titles include "Air", "Job's Tears", "October Song", "Everything's Fine Right Now", "Koeeoaddi Death", "A Very Cellular Song", "Maya", "This Moment", "Way Back In The 1960s", "Painting Box", "Log Cabin Home In The Sky", and "Cousin Caterpillar".

George JonesAlone Again ... LP
Epic, 1976. Very Good ... $6.99
A nice album, of mainly sad songs, from country great George Jones. Poor George is looking like he is on the verge of tears on the cover of the record as he sits in a diner booth trying to finish his milkshake. The tracks include "A Drunk Can't Be A Man", "Stand On My Own Two Knees", "Over Something Good", "Her Name Is...", "She Needs Me", "Right Now I'd Come Back & Melt In Her Arms", and "Diary Of My Mind". LP, Vinyl record album
