Mississippi, Late 30s/1940s. New Copy
You might take the "hits" in the title with a grain of salt – as these gals weren't entirely burning up the charts back in the 30s – but they did record some amazing music on vintage 78s, a good deal of which are in this overstuffed set!

Hi Fi Snock Uptown
Raccoon/Mississippi, 1972. New Copy
Raw & rambling folk sounds from Michael Hurly – recorded in early '72 – some of his better material of the era, living up to if not surpassing his Armchair Boogie of a couple years earlier! Michael's in seemingly amiable spirit here on some tunes, and standing on shakier ground or ... LP, Vinyl record album
Island (UK), 1970. New Copy 2 CDs
A record that really has Fairport Convention knocking it out of the park – making a bold turn towards British traditional music, but in a way that imbues these relics with a whole new life of their own! The album came at a key turning point – after an accident that took one of their ... CD

Continuing genius from the great Bert Jansch – the singer/songwriter's second album, and one of his most sublime records ever!

Jack Orion
Transatlantic/Superior Viaduct, 1966. New Copy (reissue)
A huge leap forward for the mighty Bert Jansch – and a record that's somehow even more amazing than the ones that came before!

World Pacific/Big Beat (UK), 1966. New Copy
Pop-folk genius from the elusive Bob Lind – two mid 60s albums, both arranged and produced by Jack Nitzsche! Lind's style is way more than typical folk of the time – as his tunes have a fragile sense of poetry that's really beautiful – a bit like the early work of Leonard Cohen, ... CD
Bear Family (Germany), 1950s. New Copy
Sublime sounds from the great Bonnie Guitar – a really unique artist who was part jazz singer, part California country – and very much at home on these rare early singles! Most of the music was recorded in 50s Los Angeles – and has a way of mixing country twang with hipper, more ... CD
