Bob DylanBest Of The Cutting Edge 1965/1966 – Bootleg Series Vol 12 ... CD
Columbia, Mid 60s. New Copy 2CD ... $18.99 19.98
Pinch yourself – you've gotta be dreaming – because Columbia Records just unlocked the vaults, and unearthed a treasure trove of never-heard recordings from the sessions from some of Bob Dylan's greatest records – Bringing It All Back Home, Highway 61 Revisited, and Blonde On Blonde! Each record is a masterpiece in its own right – the product of countless creative moments by Dylan in the studio, only some of which made it on record – leaving a lot more to be rediscovered all these many years later, and finally offered up to paint a vivid picture of Dylan's genius in 1965 and 1966! Some tracks are quite different – demos, acoustic versions, piano versions, and even a few rehearsals – and if you dig Bob Dylan at all, you'll find plenty here to love. 2CD set features 36 tracks in all – with unreleased unusual versions of "Tombstone Blues", "Positively 4th Street", "Love Minus Zero/No Limit", "California", "You Don't Have To Do That", "Like A Rolling Stone", "Medicine Sunday", "Desolation Row", "Sitting On A Barbed Wire Fence", "Just Like a Woman", "Lunatic Princess", "I'll Keep It With Mine", and lots more!

Bob DylanFallen Angels ... CD
Columbia, 2016. New Copy ... $11.99
Bob Dylan and his incomparable band take on old school pop standards for the second album in a row – and it's a real charmer! Fallen Angels has a lot in common with the preceding Strangers In The Night, as they're again taking on songs recorded by, and in some cases popularized by Sinatra, but this one goes a bit deeper into the classic American songbook – and it's all the better for it. Dylan's reputation as a songwriter is borderline biblical, while his reputation as a conventionally gifted singer is, well...something else – so there's a sly allurement here that's not lost on the headliner. He's paying earnest tribute to the songs themselves – which in the course of pop history have been overshadowed by the voices singing them – and on that front, it's masterful! Still, Dylan's raspy croon is pretty darn charismatic itself on this material, making it another late career gem. Longtime Dylan players Charlie Sexton, Stu Kimball, Tony Garnier, George Recile and Donnie Herron make the instrumental magic happen, along with newer Dylan player (though longtime session guitar ace) Dean Parks – but extra credit to Herron, whose steel guitar sound makes it extra special. Includes "Young At Heart", "Maybe You'll Be There", "Polka Dots & Moonbeams", "All The Way", "Skylark", "Nevertheless", "All Or Nothing At All", "It Had To Be You", "Melancholy Mood", "That Old Black Magic" and "Come Rain Or Come Shine".

Columbia/Sundazed, 1965. New Copy (reissue)... $26.99 28.98
A pivotal moment for Bob Dylan – and maybe one of THE albums of the 60s! The newly-electrified Dylan really takes off here – putting more punch and bit into his already-strong lyrical approach – and twisting things in amazing ways that still leave us breathless all these many years later! And sure, the album gave Bob a few hits – which are nestled in here next to headier tunes that work together perfectly. Titles include "Like A Rolling Stone", "Ballad Of A Thin Man", "It Takes A Lot To Laugh It Takes A Train To Cry", "From A Buick 6", "Desolation Row", "Highway 61 Revisited", and "Queen Jane Approximately".

Bob Dylan/The BandBasement Tapes ... LP
Columbia, Late 60s/1975. Very Good+ 2LP Gatefold ... $34.99
Dylan & The Band's legendary Basement Tapes – those amazing late 60s Woodstock recordings – and an album that was a classic long before it was officially released in the mid 70s! Bootleg after bootleg of some these recordings might have sold enough copies on the grey market in the early 70s to go platinum back in the day, so there's little wonder that Columbia would finally get some kind of official release out there – and it lives up to the legend! Dylan's conversational, seemingly spontaneous lyricism stretches over a good portion of it, with some much more soulful numbers, too – and those are all the more effective with The Band's incredible instrumentation, backing and occasional lead vocals. Includes "Odds And Ends", "Million Dollar Bash", "Tears Of Rage", "Tiny Montgomery", "Nothing Was Delivered", "Too Much Of Nothing", "Clothes Line Saga", "You Ain't Goin Nowhere", "Open The Door, Homer", "This Wheel's On Fire, "Crash On the Levee (Down In The Flood)", "Long Distance Operator".

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

Cash covers 3 of Dylan's tunes on Orange Blossom, "It Ain't Me Babe", "Mama, You've Been On My Mind", and "Don't Think Twice, It's Alright". Other tracks include "You Wild Colorado", "When It's Springtime In Alaska", "Amen", and "Danny Boy". LP, Vinyl record album

Gene ClarkGene Clark (White Light) ... LP
A&M/Sundazed, 1971. New Copy ... $23.99 24.98
Possibly Gene's finest hour, with OR without the Byrds. Much of the record is a spare and intimate affair, with Gene's warm vocals accompanied by his own gently picked acoustic guitar, along with producer Jesse Ed Davis (who does a masterful job in the booth on this one) also on guitar. The tunes are also sweetened by waltzy basslines, and Byrds-y keyboard riffs by Ben Sidran, but Gene's wonderful vocals and his amazingly strong songwriting are obviously the biggest draws. If there was a superior rural accented singer/songwriter record in '72 we haven't heard it! Includes "The Virgin", "With Tomorrow", "White Light", the amazing "For A Spanish Guitar", a great reading of The Band & Bob Dylan's "Tears Of Rage", "Where My Love Lies Asleep" and "1975".

A surprisingly solid, oft-overlooked end of the 70s set for Sire by Flamin' Groovies – their final effort for the label – and a hard-groovin' gem! Like their previous couple of classic records, this one was recorded in England, with Groovies guitarist Cyril Jordan co-producting, and it's a nice mix of rawly rocking originals and some cool cover versions – with "Jumpin' In The Night", "Next One Crying", "First Plane Home", "In The USA", "Down Down Down", a cool, kinda shambling guitar rock takes on Warren Zevon's "Werewolves Of London" and Bob Dylan's "Absolutely Sweet Marie" and more.

Gilberto Gil gets off to a nicely soulful start here – by bringing in a guest appearance from Ed Motta on the album's title track – then keeping things in a nice mix of samba and soul throughout the entire album! There's a few slight touches of 80s production, but overall there's a lot more warmth and honesty going on here than on most other sets hitting the global market at the time – that undeniable charm and inventive songwriting that made Gil one of the Brazilian greats in the 70s – with a legacy that continues strongly well through this album. Titles include "O Eterno Deus Mu Danca", "Mulher De Coronel", "De Bob Dylan A Bob Marley", "Baticum", and "Do Japao". CD

Allen GinsbergLast Word On First Blues (3CD set) ... CD
John Hammond/Omnivore, 1971/1976/1981. New Copy 3 CDs ... $45.99 49.98
Allen Ginsberg is probably best known as a poet and political force in the 60s and 70s – but during the latter decade, he also entered the studio as a recording artist too – and managed to turn his ideas into some surprisingly groovy tunes! This special 3CD set offers up a hugely expanded take on the First Blues album – originally produced by John Hammond, but presented here with additional material done by Ginsberg himself – with a range of contributions from people who include Bob Dylan on guitar and vocals, David Amram on French horn and piano, ARthur Russell on cello, and Peter Orlovsky on additional vocals. There's a really weird, dark sound to the record – as Ginsberg plays harmonium and sings/speaks his own words – older themes from the 60s and 70s, recast here with almost a new sense of blues and frustration. The approach is quite unique, and almost features a Ginsberg cowed a bit by the changes of time, but still with the same sense of wit and clarity he brought to his work a few decades back. Titles include "CIA Dope Calypso", "Put Down Your Cigarette Rag", "Hardon Blues", "Tyger", "You Are My Dildo", "Bus Ride Ballad Road To Suva", "Prayer Blues", and "Dope Fiend Blues". CD3 features 11 more previously-unissued recordings – some from the same sessions, some live, and one from Bob Dylan's studio in 1982! Package comes in a book-style case, with new interviews, rare drawings, and writings too. CD

Bert JanschIt Don't Bother Me ... LP
Transatlantic/Sanctuary (UK), 1965. New Copy (reissue)... $24.99
Continuing genius from the great Bert Jansch – the singer/songwriter's second album, and one of his most sublime records ever! The album's got an up-close, personal vibe – mostly just Bert's vocals and acoustic guitar, a bit like the earliest albums by Bob Dylan – and like Dylan, Jansch has this approach that's completely his own – very much schooled in older 20th century traditions, but focused on finding a new way forward – with a mix of melodic and harmonic elements that flow from his guitar with effortless ease, and are matched by some beautifully pointed vocals by a singer who sounds unlike anyone else. At times, the tunes have a quality that's almost hypnotic – a bit of a John Fahey vibe in the progressions, but a bit warmer – and titles include "Tinker's Blues", "It Don't Bother Me", "Harvest Your Thoughts Of Love", "Lucky Thirteen", "As The Day Grows Longer Now", "So Long", "900 Miles", and "Ring A Ding Blues".

Kenneth Rexroth & Lawrence FerlinghettiPoetry Readings In The Cellar ... LP
Fantasy, Late 50s. Very Good ... $19.99
A great window into the beat scene of San Francisco in the late 50s – a legendary session that matches poetry and jazz, recorded at the Cellar nightclub in 1957! Kenneth Rexroth begins the set with an extended poem entitled "Thou Shalt Not Kill" – written in memory of Dylan Thomas, and read by Rexroth in a nasally style that has all the "bite" you'd expect from a 50s beat poetry recording! Next up are some equally great shorter poems by City Lights impresario Lawrence Ferlinghetti – read in a slightly more serious mode, but one that still suits the setting well. Ferlinghetti titles include "Autobiography", "Junkman's Obbligato", and "The Statue Of St Francis" – and all the tracks are backed by obscure The Cellar Jazz Quintet – a group that features Bruce Lippincott on tenor, Dickie Mills on trumpet, Bill Weisjahns on piano, Jerry Goode or Bob Lewis on bass, and Sonny Wayne on drums.

Bridget St JohnDandelion Albums & BBC Recordings Collection (Ask Me No Questions/Songs For The Gentle Man/Thank You For/Live BBC) (4CD set) ... CD
Cherry Red (UK), Late 60s/Early 70s. New Copy 4CD ... $23.99
A massive collection of work from the legendary Bridget St John – a singer who just seems to get better and better the more we listen to her music! First up is the album Ask Me No Questions – a set with the same spare, chilling quality as Nico's first album on Verve! Like Nico, Bridget is amazingly without categorization – a folksinger initially, but one who's working here with a darkly personal quality that goes far beyond most folk work of the 60s! There's almost a Leonard Cohen-like quality to the tracks here – as they're little song-paintings in words that accomplish a tremendous amount with very little – evocative portraits and landscapes that need little more than Bridget's voice and guitar to carry them off. Titles include "Autumn Lullaby", "Like Never Before", "Barefeet & Hot Pavement", "I Like To Be With You In The Sun", "Many Happy Returns", and "Ask Me No Questions". Next is Songs For The Gentle Man – a slightly more expanded version of the sound explored on her debut! Bridget's still very much in a folk-inspired sound here – but like the work of Nick Drake and some of her contemporaries on the British scene, this album has jazzier phrasings and some slightly baroque touches on some tunes – really deepening the feel of the songs, and giving the album a dark depth that we'd easily compare with some of Drake's greatest work. Studio genius Ron Geesin produced the set with a surprising degree of subtlety – just the right amount of edgey undercurrents to unsettle the tunes nicely – never threatening Bridget's presence on the album, but augmenting the moody spectrums that already came across so nicely on the first record. Titles include "A Day A Way", "City Crazy", "Back To Stay", "Seagull Sunday", "If You'd Been There", "Song For The Laird Of Connaught Hall (part 2)", "It Seems Very Strange", and a version of Donovan's "The Pebble & The Man". Next is Thank You For – a slight shift in styles for British singer/songwriter Bridget St John – an album that shakes off a few of the folksy touches of earlier years, but still retains all the dark corners that make her work so great! A few tracks on the album have Bridget working with more traditional accompaniment, but overall most of the record still focuses strongly on voice and guitar – augmented slightly by additional instrumentation that's used sparingly, but beautifully. Most of the tracks here are still by St John – including "Nice", "Thank You For", "Happy Day", and "To Leave Your Cover" – but the album also features a few covers, like Buddy Holly's "Every Day" and Dylan's "Love Minus Zero No Limit". And the final CD features BBC recordings from 1968 to 1972 – including performances for Nite Ride, Top Gear, Peter Sarstedt, Bob Harris, and In Concert. CD

✨✧ Sir Douglas QuintetMendocino ... LP
Smash, 1969. Very Good+ ... $34.99
One of the very best rock albums of the late 60s from overlooked genius Doug Sahm and his Sir Douglas Quartet – a brilliant hybrid of the laconic country and rural rock ragged glory that was piping through so many under appreciated groups at the time (and went on to be bastardized by crap factories like The Eagles) and classical Spanish and Mexican folk guitar playing. Sahm plays fiddle, guitar, pedal steel and just about anything with strings, along with the amazing Augie Meyers (who you may remember from the beautiful organ work he contributed to Bob Dylan's late masterpieces Time Out Of Mind and Love And Theft) and others. Beautiful stuff! Includes "Mendocino", "I Don't Want", "I Wanna Be Your Mama Again", "At The Crossroads", "Lawd, I'm Just A Country Boy In This Great Big Freaky City", "She's About A Mover" and more.

✨✧ Nikki Sudden & Dave KusworthJacobites ... LP
Glass/Numero, 1984. Near Mint- (reissue)... $14.99
An overlooked gem from the 80s – but an album that should be right at the top of any important collection of rock from the 70s – given the instantly classic sound of the set! The pairing of Nikki Sudden and Dave Kusworth is one of those true genius moments in UK rock – like that of Bowie and Ronson, or Jagger and Richards – where the two individuals balance each other beautifully, and help reach this amazing territory together – in this case, at a level that we'd rank right next to gigantic-selling albums from the decade before. These songs are amazing – penned at a level that should have made all of them classics – and sung by Nikki Sudden with a voice that's instantly one of the most unique and compelling you'll ever hear – honestly right up there with Bob Dylan or Rod Stewart or any other artist at that level. The guitars are great too – mixed electric and acoustic with a really fragile feel, and lots of earthy echoes that you might find in The Faces – but fused through energy from two guys who also lived through the birth of punk as well. The album's nothing like anything else that was going on in 1984 – which is why it was sadly under-circulated at the time – but it's true genius all the way through, as you'll hear on tracks that include "Hurt Me More", "Jacobites Grave", "Kissed You Twice", "Need A Friend", "For The Roses", "Silver Street", "Hanging Out The Banners", and the original version of "Big Store".

An overlooked singer/songwriter with a heck of a lot of charm – a bit country in his manner, but maybe not a country rocker overall – because Guthrie Thomas has a spare, personal way of putting over a tune – a mode that certainly owes something to Bob Dylan, but which is also one of those few great 70s examples of the way that Dylan's powers could be extrapolated and taken into very individual directions! Nick Venet put together the set in a great way – producing with an almost hands-off approach at some points, but adding just the right amount of fuller flair when needed – again, another great example of 70s morphing someone's key 60s talents. Titles are mostly originals by Thomas – and include "Rollin Home", "Looking For You", "Tonight", "Right By My Side", "Too Young To Sing The Blues", and "Ole Sawdust". CD

Dino ValenteDino Valente ... LP
Epic, 1968. Very Good ... $84.99
The one-and-only album by San Francisco singer-songwriter Dino Valente – an enigmatic cat best known for penning the hippie anthem "Get Together" – and a much deeper and more adventurous writer then you'd know from that one ubiquitous song! Dino bridged the coffee shop folk scene with sprawling psychedelia on this album. He has the Tim Buckley kind of stream-of-conciousness restlessness, and the record's full of lovely acoustic guitar accompanied by unlikely horn and flute flourishes. Dino was hardly a conventional singer – so the production hand of Bob Dylan knob twirler Bob Johnston couldn't be a better fit. Tracks include "Time", "Something New", "My Friend", "Listen To Me", "Me And My Uncle", "Children Of The Sun", "New Wind Blowing", and "Everything Is Going To Be OK". LP, Vinyl record album

VariousDust On The Nettles – A Journey Through The British Underground Folk Scene 1967 to 1972 (3CD set) ... CD
Grapefruit (UK), Late 60s/Early 70s. New Copy 3 CDs ... $24.99
British folk music got really weird and wonderful at the end of the 60s – light years from the crew cut versions of The Kingston Trio, or the twangy modes of Bob Dylan wannabees – but also very different from the more rockish directions that American folk acts were taking at the time! If anything, the British artists showed an even deeper commitment to acoustic modes – and far more ancient ones than American groups had access too – a thousand year legacy of British Isles music, but reworked into an often-trippy style would find more famous iterations in groups from Fairport Convention through Current 93, and even in the Wicker Man soundtrack as well! Most of the music here is much more obscure than those references – groups that were big in the UK, but maybe didn't have as much of an impact over here during the period – which makes this 63 track box set a real treasure trove of discovery – filled with many tunes we'd never heard before, and put together in a very special way. Titles include "Black Girl" by Mary Anne, "Till The Morning Comes" by Dando Shaft, "Roses For Columbus" by Mark Frhy, "Love Is A Funny Thing" by Spyrogyra, "Come All You Travellers" by Wight, "Willow's Song" by Nagnet, "Cruious Crystals Of Unusual Purity" by Bridget St John, "Prisoners Victims Strangers Friends" by Paper Bubble, "Gabilan" by Duncan Browne, "Meeting By The Moonlight Mill" by Dry Heart, "Silence Returns" by Beau, "Me & My Kite" by Fuschia, "The Colour Is Blue" by Country Sun, "Welcome To The Citadel" by Marc Brierley, "Garden Song (demo)" by Bill Fay, and "Upon Reflection" by Heron.

✨✧ Bill WilsonEver Changing Minstrel ... LP
Columbia, 1973. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A stunner of an early 70s folk rock record from Bill Wilson – a singer/songwriter from Lebanon, Indiana – with a husky voice perfectly-suited for his top notch, slightly funky country rock style. This a great record! It was released by Columbia's Windfall imprint and must have disappeared relatively soon after, which is a crying shame. It's produced by Bob Johnston, the man in the booth for 60s uber-classic albums by Bob Dylan, Leonard Cohen, Johnny Cash and many, many others – and he managed to put together some of the peerless studio musicians behind some of those for this records for this one – Charlie Daniels, Kenny Buttrey, Jerry Reed, Bob Wilson, Pete Drake and Cissy Houston among them. That said, it's Bill Wilson's show – and damn good one – a record we'd put up there with some of the more famous country rock albums of the 70s. Includes"Rainy Day Resolution", "Pay Day Give Away", "Black Cat Blues", "Following My Lord", "The Good Ship Society", "Every Changing Minstrel", "Ballad Of Cody" and more. LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Brothers & SistersDylan's Gospel ... CD
Ode/Light In The Attic, 1969. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
A really amazing project – and a totally righteous little record – a set of songs all penned by Bob Dylan in the 60s, sung by a hip spiritual choir that includes performances from soul singers Clydie King, Merry Clayton, Edna Wright, and Gloria Jones! The mix of soul and gospel here is wonderful – very much in the spirit of The Voices Of East Harlem at the same time – with this progressive, positive vibe that goes way way past the original style of Dylan's music! Gene Page handled the musical arrangements, and Billy Page helped with the vocals – and together they really transform the compositions – creating a very different setting for the great lyrics of songs that include "The Mighty Quinn", "All Along The Watchtower", "Mr Tambourine Man", "Chimes Of Freedom", and "The Times They Are A Changin". A record that shouldn't work this well – but it does, and beautifully too! CD

✨✧ Philip K DickOur Friends From Frolix 8 ... Book
Gollancz (UK), 1970. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
Perfect Philip K Dick – from a time when the writer just couldn't miss! Our Friends From Frolix 8 tells of the clash between the Old Men and New Men in the coming future – but, like the best of Dick's writing, the tension is one more of anxiety in the workplace and in romance – even though the larger narrative is one of a coming revolution. As usual, the writing is wonderful – more pulp crime than sci-fi – and the book also includes one of our favorite Dick quotes ever – "As far as I'm concerned, poetry started with [Bob] Dylan and has declined since." 203 pages, softcover.

✨✧ VariousTruckers, Kickers, Cowboy Angels – The Blissed-Out Birth Of Country Rock Vol 6 – 1973 ... CD
Bear Family (Germany), 1973. New Copy 2CD ... Out Of Stock
A huge year for the blending of country styles and rootsy rock – a time in which the genre was known to some as "redneck rock", but often had a lot hipper sound than that name might imply! In fact, the track list here might well be a "who's who" of early 70s hipsters who worked in the genre – the kind of artists who were really experimenting at the time, and have gone onto influence a huge range of younger musicians over the course of decades – not just rock artists trying out some country flavors, but also older country artists whose careers were suddenly coming alive as they mixed in with the underground rock scene of the time. As with other volumes, the set list here is great – way past the hits, and often some more obscure tracks that really deserve new discovery here in the focus that the collection brings – along with the usual excellent level of notes and presentation we've come to expect from Bear Family. Titles include "San Antone" by Doug Sahm with Bob Dylan, "Salty Dog Blues" by Earl Scruggs Revue, "Mercedes Benz" by Goos Creek Symphony, "Crying Heart Blues" by The Band, "If You're Ever In Oklahoma" by JJ Cale, "Old Five & Dimers Like Me" by Billy Joe Shavers, "Getting By" by Jerry Jeff Walker, "Shotgun Willie" by Willie Nelson, "Pancho & Lefty" by Townes Van Zant, "Sold American" by Kinky Friedman, "Sleepless Nights" by Gram Parson & Emmylou Harris, "Take Me Back To Tulsa" by Asleep At The Wheel, "Dixie Chicken" by Little Feat, and lots lots more – 46 tracks in all!
