Bob DylanBootleg Series 1-3 – Rare & Unreleased 1961 to 1991 (5LP box set) ... LP
Columbia, 1960s/1970s/1980s. New Copy 5LP ... $88.99 89.98
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.

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 ... $15.99
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 DylanTriplicate (3CD set) ... CD
Columbia, 2017. New Copy 3CD ... $21.99 22.98
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 Dylan/The BandBasement Tapes Raw – Bootleg Series Volume 11 (180 gram vinyl) ... LP
Columbia, Late 60s. New Copy 3LP ... $70.99 99.98
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. Here for the first time is a 100% officially-sanctioned release of a wealth of the raw, original Woodstock recordings, painstakingly restored from the original master tapes – but without the overdubs, editing and tinkerings of the mid 70s LP versions, and other tracks that never been officially released in any form! A truly vital document of one of the most legendary woodshedding efforts in rock history. LP, Vinyl record album

Columbia, Mid 60s. New Copy 2 CDs ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
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!

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

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".

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 ... $36.99 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/Superior Viaduct, 1965. New Copy (reissue)... $19.99
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".

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

✨✧ Carl PerkinsWhole Lotta Shakin/King Of Rock/Greatest Hits/On Top ... CD
Columbia/BGO (UK), 1959/Late 60s. New Copy 2CD ... $14.99
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".

Happy & Artie TraumHappy & Artie Traum ... CD
Capitol (Japan), 1970. New Copy ... $16.99
Happy and Artie Traum are part of the farther-flung universe around Bob Dylan and The Band at the end of the 60s – musicians who worked with Bob in New York, and who were living upstate at the time they cut this wonderful debut album – even though the whole thing was actually all recorded down in Tennessee! But maybe that factor is what makes the whole thing sound special – not just some guys trying to fake roots, but actually finding them in a way that's really unique. There's an easygoing flow to their work together – an effortless embrace of country currents and more personal folksy strains – all given a nice focus in the Nashville recording studio, as bits of dobro, fiddle, and steel guitar are used sparingly, but in just the right ways – almost making the record feel like an even more subtle version of The Burrito Brothers. Titles include "Golden Bird", "Uncle Jedd Say", "The Hungry Dogs Of New Mexico", "Rabbit's Luck", "Farmers Almanac", and "State Line". 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)".

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

✨✧ 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 ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
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.
