At the core, these guys were more of a bluegrass combo – but they picked up some funky rocking soul somewhere along the way, and became one of the 70s hippest instrumental ensembles!

A breathtakingly beautiful recording of the legendary Robbie Basho – and a much-needed addition to his too-small catalog of albums! Make no mistake, Basho has given us some key records over the years – but his genius was so deep, and his life was so short, it always feels like there ... read moreLP, Vinyl record album
A never-issued album from the guitar genius Robbie Basho – material recorded at the same Vanguard Records sessions that produced his monumental albums Voice Of The Eagle and Zarthus, and every bit as great as the work that appeared on those records – and as the tracks on Basho's Takoma ... read moreLP, Vinyl record album
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
Jim Reeves' old backing group, out on their own after the passing of the master – sounding pretty nice on this 60s live set! Titles include "Distant Drums", "Soaking Up Suds", "Rum Dum", "Cold Turkey", "The Speed Offender", "Big ... read moreLP, Vinyl record album

(180 gram vinyl – and it reproduces the original 12-page booklet! Very nicely done!)
A true late 60s rock masterpiece – and like albums by Love and The Velvet Underground, a set that barely made a mainstream impact at the time – but which has gone on to be the stuff of influence and legend over the decades! The album's the first from Gram Parsons and the group – ... (Rock, Folk/Country)read moreLP, Vinyl record album
Nicely goofy work from The Geezinslaw Brothers – a country song parody duo who are very much in the mode of Homer & Jethro! There's a nice late 60s country vibe to the whole thing – and titles include "How Come I Stutter", "The Doodlin Song", "Umitigated ... read moreLP, Vinyl record album

Hat ... LP Decca/East Central One (UK), 1969. New Copy (reissue)...

Davy Graham —
Midnight Man ... LP Decca/East Central One (UK), 1966. New Copy (reissue)...
A fantastic record from Davy Graham – an amazing guitarist, and a hell of a singer too – the sort of artist we'd rank right up there with Donovan, John Martyn, and maybe even Nick Drake!

Tim Hardin's last album for Verve – and a record that has a bit of a different vibe than his previous three sets! Although still in folksy territory, Tim's really drawn a lot from blues as well – and the set adds in some electric guitar riffing and harmonica, to emphasize the blusier ...

Recent work from underground hero Russell Hoke, but sounds that are every bit as timeless as his earlier records – done in a stripped-down style that has Hoke playing borrowed guitar and banjo, and recording onto an old cellphone – which makes the whole thing feel like it came out of ... read moreLP, Vinyl record album
