Willie NelsonFor The Good Times – Tribute To Ray Price ... CD
Legacy, 2016. New Copy ... $11.99
Willie Nelson pays tribute to the great Ray Price – something you might find surprising, if you only think of Willie as a country music outlaw – but which is a real natural to us, given that the young songwriter Willie gave Price one of his best songs ever! That song is the classic "Night Life" – which kicked off one of Ray's best albums (paid tribute by the cover image here) – and rather than reprise that set, Willie takes off on a whole host of other classic tunes from Price's fantastic years on Columbia Records – set to full arrangements that have a very classic feel, arranged and conducted by Nashville legend Bergen White! The set's got all the fantastic feel you could hope for – a real meeting of country music strands – on titles that include "Faded Love", "City Lights", "Crazy Arms", "Night Life", "Make The World Go Away", "Invitation To The Blues", "For The Good Times", "I'm Still Not Over You", and "Don't You Ever Get Tired Of Hurting Me".

✨✧ Willie NelsonRed Headed Stranger ... LP
Columbia, 1975. Very Good ... $24.99
Willie's finest hour, and one of the best records of the 70s by anyone! The Nashville establishment was as horrid in the 70s as it is today, with glitzy, soulless, committee-thought pop garbage ruling the scene – so Willie, who had ironically been a hit songwriter for a decade packed it up for Austin and churned out the spare, haunting and wholly unique Red Headed Stranger in a couple of days. The LP was a huge commercial and critical success, with everyone up to and including Miles Davis singing its praises. Red Headed Stranger didn't change the world the way its champions hoped – Nashville is still pretty much an aesthetic hell hole. But the record will live on forever, and it's a crucial addition to anyone's collection who cherishes pure individualistic music that was fortunate enough to find popular success. Titles include "I Couldn't Believe It Was True", "Red Headed Stranger", "Just As I Am", "Denver", "Remember Me", "Hands On The Wheel", "Blue Eyes Crying In The Rain" and much more.

Miles DavisBlack Beauty – Miles Davis At Fillmore West ... CD
Sony, 1970. Used 2 CDs ... $9.99
Four sides of noisy, funky, stretched-out playing from Miles Davis – recorded at the Fillmore West, but with an intensity that matches some of Miles' crazy electric recordings from Japan during the early 70s! The music is a powerful blast of music that stretches out over the double-length set of the package – with a style that moves from heavy-duty avant playing, then back to more mellow grooving, then kicks it out nice and hard again – a heavy dose of rock mixed in with the fusion, but still plenty jazzy throughout. In all, the record is probably one of the most heavy-duty that the Miles electric group recorded in the 70s – and the lineup on the set features Steve Grossman on saxes, Chick Corea on electric piano, Jack DeJohnette on drums, and Airto on percussion. Tracks include "Spanish Key", "Directions", "Masqualero", "It's About That Time", "I Fall In Love Too Easily", "Bitches Brew", "Willie Nelson", and "Sanctuary". CD

Maynard FergusonNew Sounds Of Maynard Ferguson/Come Blow Your Horn ... CD
Fresh Sound New Talent (Spain), 1963. Used ... $6.99
Two great albums from a time when Maynard Ferguson was really hitting his stride – back to back on one CD! New Sounds is a really nice set, and very much in the best spirit of the excellent early 60s albums that Maynard cut for Roulette! As with those, there's some great players working in the group – a lineup that includes Willie Maiden on tenor sax, Dusko Goykovich (horribly misspelled in the notes) on trumpet, Ronnie Cuber on Baritone, and Lanny Morgan on alto – all of whom get to step out in short but soulful solos that make the tracks bristle with more excitement than you'd think. And as with other Cameo jazz sides from the time, Rufus Jones is on drums – bringing in a nice little punch to the tracks that kicks them up in just the right sort of way. Titles include the originals "Bossa Nova De Funk", "Maine Bone", and "At The Sound Of The Trumpet" – plus a version of "Watermelon Man", and the bonus track "The Song Is You". Come Blow Your Horn is a surprisingly nice album of big band material from Maynard – recorded at a time when he was just getting his start as a big name, and still handling some hip enough players to make the groove swing! One track claims to have a "Dusan Goykovich" as a soloist – who we can only imagine to be our man Dusko Goykovich – and the record has plenty other nice solos by Lanny Morgan. Arrangements are by Don Sebesky, Al Cohn, Willie Maiden, and Oliver Nelson – and tracks include "Groove", "Whisper Not", "Blues For A Four String Guitar", "New Hope", and "Naked City Theme". CD

Emmylou HarrisRoses In The Snow (expanded & remastered) ... CD
Rhino, 1980. Used ... $4.99
One of Emmylou's best, most rewardingly sweet, yet dusty albums. After the Gram Parsons days, the girl could seemingly do no wrong – until the big-haired mid 80s came along anyway – but Roses In The Snow still manages to stand out among the great ones. She was always reverent of her heroes and heroines – nursing a much stronger bluegrass and old timey jones on Roses than you would typically find on a record by a 70s non-outlaw country iconoclast. She covers the Stanleys' "Darkest Hour Is Just Before Dawn", the Louvins' "You're Learning", the Carters' "Gold Watch And Chain", and 2 previously unissued Hank Williams covers – "You're Gonna Change" and "Root Like A Rose". Still, Emmylou was the queen of cosmic American music at this point, and brings the fragile, breathy intensity to the record you could always (and still can) expect from her at her best. Guests include Johnny Cash, Willie Nelson, and Dolly Parton. Other tracks include "You're Learning", and "Jordan". A long, LONG overdue remastered issue of this great record! CD

VariousCountry Funk Vol 2 – 1967 to 1974 ... CD
Light In The Attic, Late 60s/Early 70s. New Copy Gatefold ... $11.99 14.98
A great criss-crossing of modes at the end of the 60s – music that has roots in country, but which comes off with plenty of funk and soul as well – in styles that were burning strong from LA on eastward, all the way across the south at the time! Some of the grooves here might fall into the "swamp rock" mode of the time – while others showcase hip LA artists mixing rootsy elements with tighter studio production – and a few more have genre-crossing country artists trying on some more soulful modes for good measure. The range of work is really great – and quite surprising, too – and the whole thing's got a great look that really illuminates the music within. Titles include "Northeast Texas Women" by Willis Allan Ramsey, "Nobody" by Larry Williams & Johnny Watson, "Collection Box" by Thomas Jefferson Kaye, "Me & Mr Hohner" by Bobby Darin, "Hunger Child Blues" by Townes Van Zant, "California Women" by Hoyt Axton, "Pay Day Give Away" by Bill Wilson, "Shotgun Willie" by Willie Nelson, "Cajun Moon" by JJ Cale, "Sumpin Funky Going On" by Donnie Fritts, and "Don't Let Me Down" by Dillard & Clark.

Sounds Of Soul, 1960s/Early 70s. Used ... $8.99
This is as deep as it gets! This wonderful 25 compilation is a motherlode of rare southern soul singles and lost hard soul numbers – with an all-honest, all-soulful quality that you'll be hard-pressed to find on other sets. The track selection is almost completely made up of rare numbers – most of which we'd never heard before, but which deserve to rank among the greats of the 60s. Titles include "No One Else Would Do" by Clay Hammond, "Tired Of Being Your Fool" by Nelson Sanders, "I Can't Wait" by Willie McDougal, "Young, Dumb" by Curtis Blandon, "I'm Sad About It" by Lee Moses, "Throw Away The Key" by Bell Brothers, "If I Ever Needed Your Love" by Gene Allison, "I Don't Want To Go On Without You" by Ronnie Mitchell, "You Hurt Me For The Last Time" by Otis Clay, "I Had A Nightmare" by Don Hollinger, and "No Love Have I" by Eddie Billups.

✨✧ VariousRunning The Voodoo Down – Exploration In Psychrockfunksouljazz 1967 to 1980 ... CD
Festival, Late 60s/Early 70s. New Copy 2CD ... $18.99
A great look at the influence of psychedelia on funk music – served up here in territory that starts with electric Miles Davis and prime Jimi Hendrix – then takes off into great new space of its own! The collection's awash in freak and fuzz, but also has plenty of heavy drums and basslines, too – served up by a range of soulful artists who were really blowing their minds and expanding their musical horizons at the end of the 60s – taking the same kind of chances that rock artists were in their album-long journeys – with results that are equally impressive! Familiar tracks are mixed with lesser-known gems – and titles include "Mary Don't Take Me On No Bad Trip" by Fugi, "Red Hot Mama" by Funkadelic, "Cherrystones" by Eugene McDaniels, "Patience Is Virtue" by William S Fischer, "Liar" by The Meters, "Thrills Of Love" by Warlock, "Willie Nelson (take 3)" by Miles Davis, "California Dreamin" by Eddie Hazel, "Like A Rolling Stone" by The Undisputed Truth, "Thank You For Talkin To Me Africa" by Sly & The Family Stone, "Maggot Brain" by Funkadelic, "Doriella Du Fontaine" by Lightnin Rod & Jimi Hendrix, "Talkin Loud & Sayin Nothin (parts 1 & 2)" by James Brown, "Down By The River" by Buddy Miles, and "In A Silent Way (live)" by Santana. 2CD set features bonus tracks not on the vinyl – including "I Feel Bad" by Pure Hell, "Brown Rice" by Don Cherry, and "If You Got It You'll Get It" by The Headhunters.

A surprisingly nice set of tracks that were recorded for Columbia during the 60s, but not issued until the time of this 1981 compilation. Tunes run the gamut from early modal to freer electric – and Miles works with players that include Joe Zawinul, Tony Williams, Airto, Hank Mobley, Bennie Maupin, Dave Holland, Steve Grossman, Herbie Hancock, Gil Evans, and Chick Corea. Tracks include "Ascent", "Willie Nelson", "Konda", "Duran", "Fun", "Directions 1 & 2", "Limbo", "So Near, So Far", and "Song Of Our Country". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ VariousHeavy Soul ... CD
Warner (Australia), Early 70s. New Copy 2CD ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Heavy soul, but not just from soul artists – and instead a really great range of tracks that includes work from rootsy rockers and country musicians as well! The package traces the strong influence of soul music on so many different styles at the start of the 70s – bits of funk borrowed in the rhythms, slices of politics used in the lyrics, and modes of singing that were a lot more expressive and unbridled than before – especially for some of the key artists in the set! A few crossover soul cuts mix nicely with material from a whole host of different scenes – all surprisingly united in style, thanks to a good emphasis on funky rock elements at the core. The package is another wonderful entry from this excellent Warner Australia series – and titles include "They Caught The Devil" by Tony Joe White, "They Call It Rock & Roll Music" by Delaney & Bonnie with King Curtis, "Lord Have Mercy On My Soul" by Black Oak Arkansas, "We Had It All" by Donnie Fritts, "Born To Be Wild" by Wilson Pickett, "Right Place Wrong Time" by Dr John, "On Your Way Down" by Allen Toussaint, "Sure As Sin" by Jeanie Greene, "Cry Like A Baby" by Cher, "Anna Karina" by Jackie Deshannon, "Shotgun Willie" by Willie Nelson, "Dixie Fried" by James Luther Dickinson, "I Found A Love" by Lonnie Mack, "15 Degrees" by Sam Samudio, and "Going Back To Luka" by Don Nix. 2CD set features 37 tracks in all.

✨✧ Dwight YoakamGuitars Cadillacs Etc Etc (3LP deluxe version) ... LP
Reprise, 1984. New Copy 3LP Gatefold (reissue)... Out Of Stock
The legendary debut full length for Dwight Yoakam – a honky tonk classic delivered with inimitable swagger! It's not only one of the finest country albums of its decade, we'd honestly rank Guitars Cadillacs Etc Etc up there with best country albums ever. Really! The mid 80s isn't one of the best remembered eras in country music – even hardscrabble heroes like Johnny Cash, Merle Haggard and Willie Nelson were fumbling around for the right balance of traditionalism and modernism at the dawn of the CD era – so there's no overstating what a huge breath of fresh air Yoakam was at time. He pays heartfelt homage to roots rock and honky tonk tradition, but he honed his craft in the LA club scene of the early 80s, giving his way with a classic sound an edge like no others at the time. A masterpiece. Titles include "South Of Cincinnati", "Bury Me", "Guitars Cadillacs", his killer version of Cash's "Ring Of Fire", "I'll Be Gone", "Miner's Prayer" and more. This great 3LP version is tremendous, too – with full LP of demos dating all the way back to 1981, plus a live LP capturing a gig at The Roxy in LA in '86, around the time Guitars Cadillacs Etc Etc originally came out!

Waylon's close runner-up to Honky Tonk Heroes in overall quality, and one of the greatest outlaw albums ever! As with close buddy Willie Nelson's albums from the period, Dreaming My Dreams showed just how great he could be after wrestling full creative control from the label. The firm, proud attitude helps make the album one of the most cathartic hardcore country listening experiences you can have, as well as simply being packed with great songs. 70s country doesn't get much better, and certainly no truer than this. Book ended by 2 fine tributes to heroes, "Are You Sure Hank Done It This Way" and "Bob Wills Is Still The King". Other tracks include "Waymore's Blues", "I Recall A Gypsy Woman", "High Time (You Quit Your Lowdown Ways)", "Let's All Help The Cowboys (Sing The Blues)", "The Door Is Always Open", "Let's Turn Back The Years", "She's Looking Good", and "Dreaming My Dreams With You".

✨✧ Charles Lloyd & The MarvelsI Long To See You ... LP
Blue Note, 2016. New Copy 2LP Gatefold ... Out Of Stock
A Blue Note debut from legendary reedman Charles Lloyd – who definitely wants to bring something new to his work on the label! The set features his Marvels combo – a quintet that features very prominent work from guitarist Bill Frisell, whose edgey tones here make for a very different sound than the use of guitar on some of Lloyd's recent records – especially as the group also features steel guitar from Greg Leisz, who shades things in with some washes of sound that really echo Frisell's tones too! The rest of the lineup features Reuben Rodgers on bass and Eric Harland on drums – and Lloyd plays both tenor and alto flute, with a warmth that really offsets some of the starker sounds of Frisell. The record features guest vocal work from Norah Jones and Willie Nelson – who sing on a song apiece – but the core appeal here is the interplay between Lloyd and guitar, but in a way that's very different than his 60s work with Gabor Szabo. Titles include "Of Course Of Course", "La Llorna", "Abide With Me", "Barche Lamsel", "All My Trials", and "Sombrero Sam". LP, Vinyl record album

Bear Family (Germany), 1974/1975. New Copy 2CD ... Out Of Stock
The mid 70s were a huge time for the music covered in this excellent series – a time when the earlier years of mixing rock and country styles had become almost second nature to most of the artists here – so much so that it was often difficult to peg the work as strictly coming from one side of the fence! The shift is huge – especially from that initial stretch when 60s folk rock artists were dabbling in a bit of country – and lots of the work here found a special place with a sophisticated sort of listener – often quite far from the country charts of the period, but also not the usual fan of 70s hard rock or hits either. As with other volumes, the presentation is wonderful – 43 tracks on 2CDs, with a copious amount of notes in the usual thorough Bear Family tradition – and titles include "Long Time Gone" by Richard Betts, "Building Fires" by Flying Burrito Brothers, "Are You Sure Hank Done It This Way" by Waylon Jennings, "Ripplin Waters" by Nitty Gritty Dirt Band, "Mother Nature's Way Of Saying High", "Brass Buttons" by Gram Parsons, "Bloody Mary Morning" by Willie Nelson, "There Goes Another Love Song" by The Outlaws, "Mississippi You're On My Mind" by Jesse Winchester, "Wait A Minute" by Johnny Rivers, "Runways Of The Moon" by Muleskinner, "From A Silver Phial" by Gene Clark, and "Trouble In Paradise" by The Southern Hillman Furay Band.

Capricorn/Universal (Japan), 1979. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
A surprisingly soulful set from Priscilla Coolidge Jones – a record that's kind of a late 70s take on the sorts of modes she developed with Booker T at the start of the decade – which is no surprise, given that Booker produced the record, and also plays organ and keyboards throughout! Yet the feel of the record is definitely Priscilla's own – as the lady's right out front in the lead, working in a mix of rootsy rock and modern soul touches, all handled with the sort of perfect balance that Booker brought to his bigger label 70s work after parting with the MGs and Stax Records. The album also features a fair bit of guitar in the backup combo from David Lindley, plus guest vocals from Willie Nelson on one track – and titles include "You Got Me Spinnin", "My Crew", "Goin Through These Changes", "Sweet Bird Of Feeling", "If You Don't Want My Love", and "Down To The Wire".

✨✧ Chip TaylorLast Chance/Some Of Us ... CD
Warner/Morello (UK), 1973/1974. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
A pair of great albums from Chip Taylor – an artist who finally seems to be getting his due! Last Chance is a stone classic from Taylor – a very hip cat who was raised in New York, wrote a number of big pop hits in the 60s, but was always much more comfortable with country music in the end! The album's not straight country – but instead that perfect blend of rock roots and Nashville inspiration that was bubbling up in the American underground in the wake of the Byrds and Burrito Brothers – tried by many, but delivered by only a rare few like Chip at a level this good! The tunes are great – very thoughtful songwriting that puts Taylor on a par with Willie Nelson and Kris Kristofferson – and the backup group features some great steel guitar from Pete Drake, who really helps set the mood. Titles include "I Read It In Rolling Stone", "Son Of A Rotten Gambler", "The Real Thing", "101 In Cashbox", "Last Chance", and "I Wasn't Born In Tennessee". Some Of Us features singer/songwriter Chip Taylor at the height of his powers – finding a very comfortable space in the realm of mid 70s country rock – a genre he helped inspire with his own well-written songs for others in the 60s! The set's got a vibe that's maybe a bit more adult than some of Chip's other work – maybe an undercurrent of sadness that colors these tunes in a mode that's similar to some of Mickey Newbury's material from the time, although possibly a bit more put-together overall. And the record was done in Massachusetts, away from some of the more cliched crossover sounds of Nashville – which helps preserve Taylor's intent nicely. Songs include "Early Sunday Morning", "If You're Ever In Warsaw", "Comin From Behind", "If I Can't Be In Austin", and "Me As I Am". CD

✨✧ VariousBobby Gillespie Presents Sunday Mornin Comin Down ... CD
Ace (UK), Late 60s/Early 70s. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
A totally amazing mix of music – one that's bound to blow you away, even if you think you know what it's all about! Bobby Gillespie is best known as the driving force behind Primal Scream, but he's also got a hell of an ear for sounds from the late 60s and early 70s – particularly spacey, trippy tracks that still sound revolutionary all these many years later! But what's really revolutionary is the way that Bobby stacks them together – in a sonic progression that seems to make the individual songs resonate even more in the company of each other – like that rare moment when a special DJ gets things totally right, and has you stunned at each new track as the whole thing rolls along. The huge track list is complemented by some great notes, too – track by track essays that explain the nature of each tune, and its place in the set. Titles include "Midnight Cowboy" by John Barry, "As We Go Along" by The Monkees, "Willin" by Little Feat, "Phantasmagoria In Two" by Tim Buckley, "War In Peace" by Alexander Skip Spence, "May The Circle Remain Unbroken" by 13th Floor Elevators, "Ice People" by Link Wray, "Breathe On Me" by Ronnie Wood, "Precious Memories" by Willie Nelson, "Wild Mountain Thyme" by The Byrds, "Born To Be With You" by Dion, and three great Beach Boys cuts – "Till I Die (alt mix)", "Forever (acapella mix)", and "You're Welcome".
