Bob DylanBootleg Series 1-3 – Rare & Unreleased 1961 to 1991 (5LP box set) ... LP
Columbia, 1960s/1970s/1980s. Sealed 5LP Box Set ... $79.99
The first entry in the Bob Dylan series from Columbia – and maybe still one of the most important – as it really focused on the kind of special material that had been changing hands in the underground for decades – part of that secret knowledge that would always make diehard Dylan fans sneer at anyone who only knew the official albums! There's some really amazing stuff here – especially great album outtakes, especially from classics like Freewheelin Bob Dylan and The Times They Are A Changin – plus some unusual 70s moments, weird early demo and live tracks, and lots more. Despite the large date rate, the set skews pretty heavily towards the mid 60s – which represents probably 50% of the material, alongside a good chunk of 70s tracks, and a few scattered 80s and 90s moments. Titles include "House Carpenter", "Hard Times In New York Town", "Mama You Been On My Mind", "Sitting On A Barbed Wire Fence", "Wallflower", "Santa Fe", "Who Killed Davey Moore (Live)", "Paths Of Victory", "Talkin Hava Negeilah Blues", "Let Me Die In My Footsteps", "Man On The Street", "Suze (The Cough Song)", "Seven Curses", "every Grain Of Salnd", "Catfish", "Tell Me", "Series Of Dreams", and lots lots more.

Bob DylanHighway 61 Revisited (180 gram mono pressing) ... LP
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".

Legacy, 1966. New Copy 2CD ... $11.99 15.98
The legendary and for the first time legitimate release of the 1966 Royal Albert Hall performance by Bob Dylan and (most of) The Band! For decades, the bootleg "Royal Albert Hall" performance, infamous for the cagey audience reaction to the newly electrified Dylan ("Judas!") did the rounds before seeing official release in the late 90s – but that concert was actually recorded at Manchester Free Trade Hall on May 17 of '66, when the actual Royal Albert Hall concert is THIS one, recorded on May 29. Same city, same dual and separate acoustic and electric setlists but equally compelling performance, in a different room – and honestly, it's great to listen and get a snapshot of a vitally evolving artist, sans the heavy historical baggage attached to the preceding set's legacy! Includes "She Belongs To Me", "Desolation Row", "Visions Of Johanna", "Just Like A Woman", "Tell Me, Momma:, "Baby Let Me Follow You Down", "One Too Many Mornings", "Like A Rolling Stone" and more.

✨✧ Bob DylanTempest ... CD
Columbia, 2012. Used ... $3.99
Bob Dylan and his great band whip up a moody, yet darkly humorous Tempest – and while the overall greatness of his records came down just notch or two after Love And Theft – this one goes the other way and comes pretty damn close to his late-era peaks! Lyrically, it's definitely better than the past couple records – with verse after verse of poetic storytelling – which is carried all the more effectively by his weathered rasp. Sound-wise, Dylan is as indebted as ever to pre-rock rhythm & blues, but there's some nice fuzzy electrified arrangements, too – and it's all played by a stellar band that's been with him for a long time now, one perfectly-suited for the style: guitarists Charlie Sexton & Stu Kimball, BR5-49 fiddler and steel guitarist Donnie Herron, bassist Tony Garnier, drummer George Receli, and a most noteworthy guest in Los Lobos' David Hidalgo on accordion. Includes "Duquesne Whistle", "Soon After Midnight", "Narrow Way", "Long And Wasted Years", "Pay In Blood", "Scarlet Town", "Early Roman Kings", "Tin Angel", "Tempest" and "Roll On John". CD

Bob DylanTriplicate (3LP 180 gram vinyl set – with download) ... LP
Columbia, 2017. New Copy 3LP ... $46.99
Bob Dylan takes on the American songbook once again – revisiting the territory of classic 20th century songwriters that he touched on the Fallen Angels album, but in an overstuffed mode that definitely warrants the Triplicate title! The triple-length format really has Dylan going to town on the material – and maybe doing a lot more than just trying to ape an older singer like Frank Sinatra – as the arrangements are often surprisingly fresh, and almost hit the kind of country/standard mode that Willie Nelson hit with his Stardust recording. In fact, given the rasp and world-heavy tone of Dylan's voice, and the strong use of both acoustic and steel guitar on some of the tunes, the whole thing maybe feels more like a vision of midcentury, seen through a lens that gives the sound of Nashville a lot more importance in the canon. The set was recorded at the Capitol Studios, which seems a great place to capture this vibe – and titles include, not surprisingly, "Stardust", plus "This Nearly Was Mine", "Stormy Weather", "Once Upon A Time", "The Best Is Yet To Come", "As Time Goes By", "Imagination", "Day In Day Out", "There's A Flaw In My Flue", "These Foolish Things", and "You Go To My Head".

✨✧ Bob DylanAnother Side of Bob Dylan ... LP
Columbia, 1964. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Bob's fourth record, and close runner up to Freewheelin' as the masterpiece of this early stage of his career. While the overly arch Times They Are A Changin' pretty much stood as the cornerstone of classifiable folk rock at the time, Another Side is just that. Dense, elliptical, and downright surreal at times, with some of the protesty stuff that made the media so happy & hungry, but much more layered and poetic. Another side is also much more reverent of and indebted to the Harry Smith field recordings that Bob studied so hard, the stuff that finally caught on with the general public in the early 90s. Titles include "Spanish Harlem Incident", "It Ain't Me Babe", "Ballad In Plain D", "Black Crow Blues", "I Don't Believe You", "Motorpsycho Nitemare", "To Ramona", "Chimes Of Freedom", "My Back Pages", and "I Shall Be Free No 10".

✨✧ Carl PerkinsWhole Lotta Shakin/King Of Rock/Greatest Hits/On Top ... CD
Columbia/BGO (UK), 1959/Late 60s. New Copy 2CD ... Out Of Stock
You might know Carl Perkins mostly as an artist who recorded for Sun Records during the label's glory days of the 50s – but the singer also moved onto Columbia Records, where he cut some stunningly great material that's collected in this set! The package begins with the album Whole Lotta Shakin – a set that takes off from the Sun Records style of Perkins, but also maybe brings in a few country touches, and some of that rawer Columbia rockabilly style that real aficionados know the label did so well. The following three records are all from the end of the 60s – and really show a great new side of the maturing singer – as he hits the kind of post-roots vibe that other aging rockabilly singers were moving towards at the time – like Gene Vincent or Jerry Lee Lewis, who arguably cut some of their most interesting material during the time. Like the latter, Perkins maybe brings in more country inflection to his sound – but also prefaces a whole generation of roots rockers who were emerging – and there's loads of interesting moments in these later recordings, including a tune co-written with Bob Dylan. 2CD set features 49 tracks in all – and titles include "Champaign Illinois", "Levi Jacket", "Loveville", "Sister Twister", "Too Much For A Man To Understand", "Pointed To Shoes", "Just For You", "Mean Woman Blues", "Riverboat Annie", "Lion In The Jungle", "Superfool", "Soul Beat", and "Power Of My Soul".

William C BeeleyGallivantin ... CD
North Park/Tompkins Square, 1971. New Copy ... $13.99 14.99
A beautiful little set from the enigmatic William Beeley – a singer/songwriter who's very clearly influenced by the early work of Bob Dylan – but who has a sound that quickly takes off in his own direction! Beeley begins the set with a version of a Dylan tune, but then opens up into some very personal songs of his own – presented with just vocals and guitar, in an up-close, honest style that's somewhere in the territory of Tim Hardin or early Leonard Cohen – not that William's copping their approach, just that the songs are that good, we'd easily rank them in such heady company. And although the set was originally issued on a tiny Texas label, the sound is much more northeast overall – on titles that include "Summer Colored Skin", "Carol", "And Then I'll Be Gone", "Easter Sunday Song", "Weathered Lady", and the album's ten minute closer "Little Wheel Spin & Spin & Co'Dine".

Blonde On BlondeRebirth (with bonus tracks) ... CD
Ember/Esoteric (UK), 1970. New Copy ... $12.99
These guys may have a name that evokes a Bob Dylan album, but their sound is something else entirely – a magical blend of simple instruments in a really unique way – and a songwriting voice that really sets these guys apart from the rest! There were so many great UK groups at the end of the 60s, that possible giants like these guys often got buried in the release schedule of the labels – even though they've got a fully-formed sound right from the start, and a lyrical confidence that's very unique. The music's a bit psych, and not entirely prog – but also reaching for something bigger than any sound of a few years before – and even though the instrumentation is by the very familiar trio of guitar, bass, and drums, there's definitely something special about it – as is also the case with the lead vocals of singer David Thomas. Titles including "Castles In The Sky", "Circles", "Broken Hours", "Heart Without A Home", "Colour Questions", "You'll Never Know Me/Release" and "Time Is Passing". CD features bonus tracks – "Circles (single version)", "Castles In The Sky (alt version)", and "Time Is Passing (alt version)". CD

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

DionKickin Child – 1965 Columbia Recordings ... CD
Columbia/Norton, 1965. New Copy ... About May 12, 2017 (delayed)
A pretty amazing little record from Dion DiMucci – especially if you only know his earliest rock and roll hits! Dion was always a cat who was hipper than most of his mainstream contemporaries – as evidence by the surprisingly deep turn he'd take at the end of the 60s – but during his early years with Columbia, he was often improperly assigned to songs and sessions – and never really got to show off the more interesting ideas he had in mind for his music. Enter producer Tom Wilson, who was working with Bob Dylan during the early electric years – and who, on most of these tracks, allowed Dion himself to move in a folk rock direction – mostly on his own compositions, which re really incredible – and have a style that could easily sit next to the mid 60s classics on Columbia by The Byrds or Dylan, even though the label never thought much of the recordings at the time. Instead, some of these tracks were issued as singles, or got much later release – and some never saw the light of day at all – and are finally brought together here in a decades-overdue complete album of this great musical moment. If you dig the deeper strands of the transforming folk generation, you'll find plenty to love here – as a younger, clean-cut artist grows his hair, and really finds himself on titles that include "My Love", "Tomorrow Won't Bring The Rain", "Wake Up Baby", "Kickin Child", "Two Ton Feather", "Knowing I Won't Go Back There", "You Move Me Babe", "So Much Younger", and "Time In My Heart For You". Also includes versions of the Dylan tracks "Farewell", "It's All Over Now Baby Blue", and "Baby I'm In The Mood For You". CD

DionKickin Child/Too Much Monkey Business ... 7-inch
Columbia/Norton, 1965. New Copy (pic cover)... $11.99
Dion's looking pretty radical on the cover of this single – and he's sounding pretty radical, too – picking up an electrified folk rock vibe that's almost a bit like the turn that Bob Dylan was also taking in 1965! The change is no surprise, given that Dylan and Dion were both labelmates and acquaintances – but Dion's also very much his own man, and really finding his own voice on "Kickin Child", a song that should have been huge, had it gotten the proper treatment in 1965. "Too Much Monkey Business" is the Chuck Berry tune – but Dion does a wonderful job of Dylanizing it here – and the cut is only available on this single, not the full Kickin Child album. 7-inch, Vinyl record

Phil FordDig – Sound & Music In Hip Culture (hardcover) ... Book
Oxford, 2013. New Copy ... $5.99 29.95
A rich look at the role of music in defining counterculture in the 20th century – a book that starts out with jazz, moves through rock, and covers a fair bit of other styles in between – all with a relatively complex style that's as philosophical as it is informative! The author approaches the subject with both a strong historical sense of his examples, and a critical eye towards their deeper power – as he traces the role of musicians who include Charlie Parker, Ken Nordine, Miles Davis, Boyd Raeburn, Bob Dylan, Thelonious Monk, Lennie Tristano, John Benson Brooks, and many others – tying them in with modern art, the beat movement, 60s freedoms, and literature and art of the time. There's a huge amount of notes – dozens and dozens of pages, which cite some even deeper examples – and the book is 303 pages, hardcover, with some black and white images. Book

An overlooked gem from the Three Blind Mice catalog of the 70s – a date that's led by pianist Kunio Ohta, but which features some excellent reed work from Masamiki Takano too! The record's got that open, creative spirit that we love from the label's best work in the decade – almost as if the group is trying to make sure they're never pegged down to one style at all, as they open up in new directions on every track on the set! The title tune is a beautiful 16 minute take on Bob Dylan's "My Back Pages" – and also features trumpet from Katsuhiko Matsuura, too – who plays on the titles "Mar Y Sol" and "My Ship" as well. The album also features a great take on "St Thomas", which is an excellent workout for Takano's tenor. CD

Pearls Before Swine/Tom RappCity Of Gold/Beautiful Lies You Could Live In ... CD
Warner/BGO (UK), 1971. New Copy ... $13.99
A pair of Warner Brothers gems from Tom Rapp and Pearls Before Swine – back to back on a single CD! City Of Gold is a return to folksier forms for Tom Rapp and Pearls Before Swine – working here in territory that's very different than some of the baroque light arrangements used on previous records. Rapp's emerging as a more confident singer/songwriter – recording in an almost Dylan-like setting, but with more of the irony of Leonard Cohen, and as always, working in a timeless idiom that's still beginning to be understood more than 30 years after its inception. Beautiful work throughout – as earthy as it is majestic – and with titles that include "My Father", "The Man", "Once Upon A Time", "City Of Gold", "Nancy", and "Wedding". Beautiful Lies You Could Live In is one of the most perfectly formed albums ever recorded by Tom Rapp's enigmatic group Pearls Before Swine – a record that does an incredible job of skirting between Rapp's earthy sense of the planet's passing, and his ambitions for larger forums of expression. The core group is lightly folksy – with strong use of acoustic guitar that goes far beyond any folk rock cliches – plus some additional arrangements that feature contributions from the team of Bob Dorough and Stu Scharf, who seem to have a habit of appearing on under-discovered gems like this one, and making them sound all that more hip! The whole thing's great – filled with beautiful songs that should have been as over-recorded as the best by Tim Hardin or Leonard Cohen – with titles that are even better, too! Tracks include "Snow Queen", "A Life", "Butterflies", "Simple Things", "Freedom", "She's Gone", and "Island Lady". CD

✨✧ Sly & RobbieLanguage Barrier ... LP
Island, 1985. Very Good ... $6.99
Nice 80s digital dub era grooves from Sly & Robbie! For years, We'd back and forth on how we feel about Bill Laswell's slick modern production – but we've really come around on it more recent years, especially considering how influential the 80s style turned out to be in post-millennium music, be reggae or just about any other popular genre. That said, we've never doubt Sly & Robbie, so in the grand scheme of things, this album always boiled down to a winner. Like a lot of mid 80s Material productions, this one pulls in an all star cast to lend a hand to the Rhythm Twins, including Bernie Worrell, Herbie Hancock, Wally Badaru, Manu Dibango, Afrika Bambaata, Bernard Fowler, Mike Hampton, Doug E Fresh and even Bob Dylan. The overall groove is very electro, with 6 long-ish numbers: "Make 'Em Move", "No Name On The Bullet", "Mile (Black Satin)", "Bass & Trouble", "Language Barrier" and "Get To This, Get To That".

The music is by Jimmy Reed, Bob Dylan, The Beatles, Cadillacs, Robert Johnson, and others – but Young and the group effortlessly mix together all those inspirations without ever sounding forced or gimmicky at all – especially in the way they can bring in some jazzier phrasing, but in a very subtle way – as they did while maturing on their previous few albums. Titles include "Speedo", "Kind Hearted Woman", "She Came In Through The Bathroom Window", "I Shall Be Released", "Dreamboat", "Running Bear", and "Going By The River". CD

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 ... $22.99
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.

VariousIt's Zimmerman's World We Just Live In It ... CD
Pet Records, Mid 60s. New Copy Gatefold ... $9.99
A freewheelin' compilation of obscure, groovy Bob Dylan knockoff singles from the mid 60s – pretty wild stuff! It's got a few numbers by singers who so totally and so brazenly imitate Dylan's vocal mannerisms, they almost sound like weird, mirror image, bizarro world songs by the man himself – and many more that kind of do their own thing, albeit with Dylan-esque lyrical imagery – all of it very well produced and performed. It's not all by complete unknowns (how does it feeeeeeeeellllll???), with a track by Tommy Boyce of Boyce & Hart and Monkees songwriting fame, Gary Usher cohort Dick Campbell and others, but most of it is cool & strange stuff by folks we've never heard of – with material ranging from chiming folk rock to surrealistic psych pop! Includes "Breaking Your Balloon" by Johnny Cymbal, "Leaving It All Behind" by The Toads, "Gotta Turn Myself On, Babe" by TJ Black, "Come Free My Mind" by Darrell Cotton, "Thank You Babe" by The Changin' Times, "Pretty Thing (Your Out Of Sight)".

✨✧ Echo & The BunnymenIt's All Live Now (180 gram pressing – limited & numbered) ... LP
Rhino/Run Out Groove, Mid 80s. New Copy ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A fantastic side of Echo & The Bunnymen at the height of their powers – and material with a rawer edge than most of their studio work too! The sound here is mostly nice and stark – more post-punk than polished, because of the live setting – and a surprisingly great reminder of the way that Will Sergeants's stark, sharp guitar was as much a part of the group's sound as the vocals of Ian McCulloch! The record is full of surprises – and is maybe worth it alone for the group's fantastic remake of "She Cracked", an early tune by Jonathan Richman from the days when he was a pre-punk genius. Other tracks include versions of the Velvet Underground tracks "Heroin" and "Run Run Run", Tom Verlaine's "Friction", Bob Dylan's "It's All Over Now Baby Blue" and the Doors' "Soul Kitchen" – plus the originals "Crocodiles" and "Do It Clean". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ DionKickin Child – 1965 Columbia Recordings ... LP
Columbia/Norton, 1965. New Copy Gatefold ... Out Of Stock
A pretty amazing little record from Dion DiMucci – especially if you only know his earliest rock and roll hits! Dion was always a cat who was hipper than most of his mainstream contemporaries – as evidence by the surprisingly deep turn he'd take at the end of the 60s – but during his early years with Columbia, he was often improperly assigned to songs and sessions – and never really got to show off the more interesting ideas he had in mind for his music. Enter producer Tom Wilson, who was working with Bob Dylan during the early electric years – and who, on most of these tracks, allowed Dion himself to move in a folk rock direction – mostly on his own compositions, which are really incredible – and have a style that could easily sit next to the mid 60s classics on Columbia by The Byrds or Dylan, even though the label never thought much of the recordings at the time. Instead, some of these tracks were issued as singles, or got much later release – and some never saw the light of day at all – and are finally brought together here in a decades-overdue complete album of this great musical moment. If you dig the deeper strands of the transforming folk generation, you'll find plenty to love here – as a younger, clean-cut artist grows his hair, and really finds himself on titles that include "My Love", "Tomorrow Won't Bring The Rain", "Wake Up Baby", "Kickin Child", "Two Ton Feather", "Knowing I Won't Go Back There", "You Move Me Babe", "So Much Younger", and "Time In My Heart For You". Also includes versions of the Dylan tracks "Farewell", "It's All Over Now Baby Blue", and "Baby I'm In The Mood For You". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Hudson (DeJohnette/Grenadier/Medeski/Scofield)Hudson ... CD
Motema, 2017. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
A group who take their name from the Hudson River Valley – beautifully pictured here on the front cover – and a quartet who work in an equally expansive array of sounds – all sharp elements of tone and timing from a lineup that features Jack DeJohnette on drums, John Scofield on guitar, Larry Grenadier on bass, and John Medeski on piano, Fender Rhodes, and Hammond! The Hudson influence doesn't just stop at the name, though – because all these upstate New York musicians often pay tribute to other artists who left the city for points north – Bob Dylan, Jimi Hendrix, Joni Mitchell, and The Band – each of whom gets a tribute track on the album. About half the set is originals by members of the group – and if we had to pick one instrument that seems to have the strongest voice in the group, it might be the guitar of Scofield – maybe in part because he can skirt the two different worlds so well. Titles include "Tony Then Jack", "Dirty Ground", "El Swing", "Hudson", "Lay Lady Lay", "Woodstock", "Wait Until Tomorrow", and "A Hard Rain's Gonna Fall". CD

✨✧ Jack ElliottYoung Brigham/Bull Durham Sacks & Railroad Tracks ... CD
Reprise/Morello (UK), 1968/1970. New Copy ... Out Of Stock

Bull Durham Sacks & Railroad Tracks is Unusual later work from Ramblin Jack Elliott – done in a nicely loose Warner style, with talking between most of the songs, in the mode that made his live gigs over the years so distinctively endearing – and the titles include his take on classics "Me & Bobby McGee" and "Folsom Prison Blues", Dylan covers "Lay Lady Lay" and "Girl Of The North Country", "Reason To Believe", "Tramp On The Street" and more.
