CMR/Americana Anthropology, Early 70s. New Copy
A really fantastic bit of lost country work from Billy Gray – an artist best known for his collaborations with Hank Thompson, but coming across here with a much more down-to-earth style! The set's got lean production and really well-done songs – the kind of rare country nugget that ...
Epic/Morello (UK), Late 60s/Early 70s. New Copy 2CD
Four classic early albums from Tammy Wynette – all served up here in a single collection! On Ways To Love A Man, Tammy Wynette's maybe a bit less brash on the cover than some of her earlier records, but she's still completely sublime – really in that standard-setting mode that made her ...
Ace (UK), Late 60s/1970s/1980s/1990s. New Copy
A hell of a tribute to the songwriting genius of Dolly Parton – a side of her talents that's sometimes obscured by her incredible voice and overwhelming personality! Yet right from the start, long before she was a superstar, Dolly was as much a writer in country music as she was a singer of ...
Ace (UK), Late 60s/Early 70s. New Copy
A fabulous look at a new wave of music that hit the American scene at the end of the 60s – sophisticated songs with a deep sense of narrative that went way beyond the usual – first sprung by the world of country music, but with an influence that went on to touch all other styles too! ...
Takoma (UK), 1973. New Copy
A wonderful set from the early 70s – a record that has John Fahey opening up even more than before, on three very long tracks that really extend his ideas into a much more open space! The territory is maybe a bit more in the mode of Robbie Basho or Sandy Bull – and the pieces ...
BGO (UK), Mid 70s. New Copy
Four albums that show the continuing evolution of Earl Scruggs in the 70s – with a sound that's very different than his earlier music, and maybe even sharper instrumentation overall! First up is I Saw The Light – a record made after the famous banjo pioneer split with Lester Flatt, and ...
Lion, 1976. New Copy
A startlingly great mid 70s loner folk record by Scott Key – with some of the finest, most artful fingerstyle guitar we've heard on a self-recorded album from the period – and a really strong record that would be right at home on the Takoma label! Recorded in Colorado by Key himself, ...
Decca/BGO (UK), Early 60s. New Copy
The great Patsy Cline left this planet all too soon – so soon that she never got a chance to record in the full length album mode that would soon be such a big part of country music expression in the 60s – which left it up to the labels to put together albums of her work after she died ...
Monument/Vocalion (UK), Early 70s. New Copy 2CD
Genius early work from Kris Kristofferson – four great albums in a single package, with SACD mastering too! First up is The Silver Tongued Devil & I – a masterful tribute to the genius of Kris Kristofferson, and a record that perfectly illustrates that unique place he held in music ...
Drag City, Mid 90s. New Copy
Very dark sounds from John Fahey's later years – music that was likely recorded in the boardinghouse where he was spending his time, and done with a much moodier vibe than most of his earlier music! The set begins with a layered vocal number that's extremely foreboding – layered vocals ...
RCA/BGO (UK), Late 70s. New Copy 2CD
Four late 70s albums from Charley Pride – brought together in a single collection! Pride still sounds great here – opening up his sound a bit past the usual RCA style of the past, with lots of production help from Jerry Bradley, plus a bit of work from Jack Clement too! The set ...
Flying W, Late 50s. Very Good+
(Cover has some flaking on the spine.)
Reprise, 1974. Near Mint-

Antilles, 1976. Near Mint-
(80s Carthage pressing. Cover has a cut corner.)

Mercury, 1973. Near Mint-
(Japanese promo pressing. Includes the insert. Cover has a light mark from sticker removal and some spotty aging in front.)
Monument, 1972. Near Mint-
A wonderful album, and one that's full of lesser-known gems from Kris Kristofferson – from a time when he'd started sharing his songs with other singers first, and started to hold back all the good stuff for himself! The album's got help from some country music studio greats, but it's ...
Ocora (France), 1985. Near Mint- Gatefold
(Includes the folded insert. Cover has some surface wear and a cutout hole.)
MGM, 1974. Sealed
(Still sealed, with a cutout notch, some price sticker remnants, and bumped corner.)

MGM, 1964. Very Good+

Atlantic, 1971. New Copy (reissue)
A landmark album from John Prine – his Atlantic debut, done at a time when he was emerging from the second generation of the Chicago folk scene – with a style that set the tone for countless singer/songwriters in years to come! The record has immediate appeal to ears tuned towards hip ...
Columbia, 1978. Sealed
(Cover has some indentations on the front from use as a writing surface.)
RCA, 1972. Very Good+
(Blue label RCA Camden pressing.)
Island (UK), 1969. Near Mint-
The record where it all really came together for Fairport Convention – the point at which the already-great group really stepped forward to become something totally unique! By this point all the key elements are firmly in place – sublime vocals from the great Sandy Denny, amazing ...
