Chet Atkins is groovin, but in a yesterday sort of way – hence the title of this sweet set from the start of the 70s! The record still has plenty of that excellent Atkins guitar work right up front in the mix – picking and strumming with the sublime sound that Chet created in the ... read moreLP, Vinyl record album
(Cover has a few spots of tape, a promo stamp, and light wear.)
One of the wildest albums ever from the great Robbie Basho – as you might guess from the cover! Basho first made waves with his solo guitar work (and a bit of vocalizations) for the Takoma label, during the early years of John Fahey – but as the 60s ended, Robbie had more of a ... read moreLP, Vinyl record album
A fantastic addition to the all-too-small catalog of recordings by Jay Bolotin – a Kentucky songwriter whose compositions were recorded by bigger names down in Nashville, even if Jay never fully got his due! Bolotin is hardly country, though – much more a songpoet, in the manner of ... read moreLP, Vinyl record album
A later effort from Tim Buckley with a bigger sound and more of a straight ahead approach – with a big nod in the groove direction and some R&B creeping in! In lesser hands, Greetings From LA could be considered more of a "commercial" album than the unpredictable stylistic ... (Rock, Folk/Country)read moreLP, Vinyl record album
(Beige label pressing in a non-gatefold cover, with clear tape on the spine and lightly bent corners.)
Tim Buckley —
Lorca ... LP Elektra, 1970. Near Mint- ...
Far-thinking genius from Tim Buckley – and one of his most experimental albums ever! Lorca really takes off from the sound of earlier albums – pushing the jazz side of the spectrum even more, and stretching out on longer tracks that have his vocals riffing a lot more than usual. ...

(Butterfly label pressing with Sterling stamp. Cover has clear tape on the spine, a small cutout hole, and a peeled spot from sticker removal.)
Mindblowing minimalism from the legendary Sandy Bull – an artist who might have had acoustic roots in folk music, but who was instantly turning his music into something else – drawing on modal styles of Eastern music, European generations of expression on guitar, jazz-based ... read moreLP, Vinyl record album
(60s orange label mono pressing! Cover has a piece of tape on the back, but looks great on the front.)
A pretty darn incredible album – featuring Sandy alone playing guitar, banjo, oud, Fender bass, and electric guitar – plus some slight percussion accompaniment from Billy Higgins. Like his previous LP, Inventions is an awe inspiring blend of folk, jazz & rustic sounds with a ... read moreLP, Vinyl record album

Bunky & Jake —
LAMF ... LP Mercury, 1969. Used ...
Just Sold Out!
The second album from darlings of the Greenwich Village coffeehouse scene, Bunky & Jake. Like their debut LP, this set's got a core of guitar and vocal duets – but with a full band loaded with ringers like Felix Pappalardi, Buzzy Linhart, Perry Robinson, Ray Barretto and Chuck Rainey ... read moreLP, Vinyl record album
(Red label pressing. Cover has light wear and a cutout hole.)
A fantastic lost slice of work from Glen Campbell – recorded in the studio during the years of his big initial fame in the 60s – but never issued to the public at all! Instead, these tracks were recorded for "The King" – that is, Elvis Presley – a bit like demos ... (Rock, Folk/Country)read moreLP, Vinyl record album
Steel guitar from Thumbs – with titles that include "Me & Memphis", "Getting Your Ship Together", "Mystery Train", "Lost Highway", "Son", and a version of Merle Haggard's "Silver Wings". LP, Vinyl record album

The vital debut of Guy Clark – and easily one of the greatest Texa-bred country records of the mid 70s! Guy was already developing a strong pedigree as a songwriter by this point, but much like his peer Billy Joe Shaver, the personal feel of the songs come across in a deeper way, when done ... read moreLP, Vinyl record album
