Davy Graham & HollyGodington Boundry ... LP
President/Acme (UK), 1970. New Copy (reissue)... $13.99
One of the holy grails of British folk at the end of the 60s – and one of those records that really shows why the UK scene was so different than the US at the time! Davy Graham belongs right up there with John Renbourn or Bert Jansch for his skills on the guitar – maybe jazzier than either at some points, but also able to open up in ways that are both ancient and modern at the same time – maybe especially freewheeling here, in the setting of a smaller indie label like President Records, than he might have been if a bigger label was pushing its agenda. Graham sings a bit – and so does the enigmatic Holly – but the real star is his guitar, both acoustic and electric – as it moves through blues, ragas, jazz, folk, and more – in a set that includes "Nadu Silma", "Forty Ton Parachute", "Dallas Rag", "On Green Dolphin Street", "Afta", "The Preacher", "I'm A Freeborn Man", and "Joe Joe The Cannibal Kid". LP, Vinyl record album
(Limited edition of 500 copies.)

✨✧ T2T2 (1970) ... LP
Acme/Lion (UK), 1970. New Copy ... $18.99
Previously unreleased work from T2 – the short-lived, hard-rocking British group that flourished briefly at the end of the 60s! There's a heady, fuzzy sort of feel to these tracks – music that's very much of the same generation as Deep Purple at times, but with some softer, more introspective moments at others – very much a fully-formed, deeply conceived sound that really goes way beyond the short history of the group. Bass is darkly rumbling on most tracks, topped with guitar that's sometimes fuzzy, sometimes more quietly chromatic – plus an occasional dose of mellotron in just the right places. Titles include "T2", "Highway", "Careful Sam", "CD", "Timothy Monday", and "The Minstrel". LP, Vinyl record album

Jason RoebkeCinema Spiral ... CD
No Business (Lithuania), 2016. New Copy ... $14.99
A great large group recording from bassist Jason Roebke – and maybe one of his best records so far! Roebke's working here with a crack assortment of Chicago musicians – all players who have been rising in the same wave of creativity that's also held Jason up in recent years, and who seem to hit even greater heights here working under his leadership! The album's got that mix of composition and freedom that's really marked Chicago for the past decade or so – but there's also some richer ideas bubbling up, and a sense of tone and color that makes each musician resonate individually in a very strong way, while continuing to contribute a lot to the sound of the group. Players include Greg Ward on alto, Keefe Jackson on tenor and sopranino, Jason Stein on bass clarinet, Josh Berman on trumpet, Jeb Bishop on trombone, Mike Reed on drums, and Jason Adasiewicz on vibes – and titles include "Looking Directly Into The Camera", "L'Acme", "Waiting", "People Laughing", "Getting High", and "For A Moment".

VariousAction Time Vision – A Story Of Independent UK Punk 1976 to 1979 (4CD set) ... CD
Cherry Red (UK), Late 70s. New Copy 4CD ... $34.99
A truly incredible collection – even more wonderful than we might have guessed from the title and cover – and both of those are already pretty darn appealing! This package might well be the most comprehensive we've ever seen on the early days of punk in England – a package that goes way past the big names, way past the classic cuts, and really digs deep into the huge explosion of indie labels that fueled the scene – creating a legacy of rare singles and amazing sounds that the British scene hadn't seen in years! If you dig the Sex Pistols or Clash, there's dozens of other tunes here to love – some by artists you'll know from later fame, represented here on very early tracks – and lots more from acts who maybe only gave the world a handful of brilliant singles. The presentation is as stunning as the music – 111 tracks on 4CDs, inside a heavy 64 page book-style jacket – with page after page of notes on each song and band, and lots of images as well. Consider this whole thing an overdue primer on all the punk you missed – even if you lived back in the day – and lose yourself in the huge array of tracks by groups who include The Radiators From Space, Puncture, Some Chicken, The Panik, The Only Ones, Suspects, Tueway Army, The Boys, Acme Sewage Co, Raped, Bazoomis, Menace GLC, Sids, Rudi, Art Attack, Angelic Upstarts, Mean Street, Poison Girls, Chelsea, Demon Preacher, Leyton Brothers, The Dole, Riff Raff, The Tights, Social Security, Nicky & The Dots, No Way, The Wall, Hollywood Brats, Disco Zombies, Spizzoil, Horrorcomic, The Cravats, and lots lots more!
