Raccoon/Future Days, 1972. New Copy Gatefold
CD...$5.99 14.99
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 ... CD
Raccoon/Future Days, 1969. New Copy Gatefold

Island/BGO (UK), 1976. New Copy
CD...$8.99 14.99

Sundazed, Mid 50s. New Copy 2CD

CD
Bear Family (Germany), 1950s/Early 60s. New Copy 2CDs

Four fantastic early albums from Waylon Jennings – all served up in a single package! First up is Folk Country – a mid 60s classic from Waylon Jennings – cut for RCA at a time when the singer was really beginning to find his own style! While not really a folk album, the use of ... CD

Roscoe Holcomb

Old Church
Mississippi, 1972. New Copy
Appalachian music great Roscoe Holcomb is best known for his Folkways recordings of the early 60s – but he sounds equally wonderful here in a rare performance recorded at a church in Portland in 1972!

Capitol, 1968. New Copy 2CD
A sublime album from the great Bobbie Gentry – and maybe her strongest full-length set recorded during the classic Capitol years! The title's "sweete" is a hillbilly play on the word "suite" – and the album definitely works as an extended suite of tracks – ... CD

Seal Of The Blue Lotus
Takoma/Ace (UK), 1965. New Copy
CD...$9.99 18.99
A perfect illustration of the genius of guitarist Robbie Basho – a set recorded early in his career, but with music that's light years ahead of most of his contemporaries! Although a set of solo acoustic guitar tracks, the music isn't really folk – nor is it the sort of acoustic ... CD
Takoma (UK), 1973. New Copy
CD...$9.99 18.99
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 ... CD
Transatlantic/BGO (UK), Late 60s/Early 70s. New Copy 2CD
CD...$8.99 19.99
A trio of tremendous albums by The Johnstons – all recorded right around the start of the 70s, at a time when the group was moving into some even more heady territory than before! The Johnstons got their start as a more traditional Irish folk group, but like most of their British Isles ... CD
Decca/BGO (UK), Early 60s. New Copy
CD...$8.99 19.99
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 ... CD
Transatlantic/BGO (UK), Late 60s. New Copy 2CD
CD...$8.99 19.99
Great work from The Johnstons – an Irish group centered around the wonderful vocals of Adrienne and Lucy Johnston – a male/female pair who have a really fantastic sound when they sing together! Given their harmonies, The Johnstons' approach is a bit of a later take on some of the folk ... CD
Numero, 1970s/Early 80s. New Copy
CD...$7.99 18.98
Troubadour folk from the 70s and into the early 80s – collected from rare privately issued records – the third set in the Wayfaring Strangers series from Numero! Lonesome Heroes is the male companion set to the equally excellent Ladies Of The Canyon compilation – and it features ... CD

CD...$7.99 18.98
A wonderful collection of obscure solo acoustic guitar tunes from the mid 60s up to the dawn of the 80s – beautiful work from a slew of players we've never heard of – but we'd put right up there with Fahey and Basho in the way they reach from the back porch to the cosmos with just their ... CD

Charlie Rich

Lonely Weekends
Sun, Late 50s. New Copy (reissue)
A classic full length collection of work from the great Charlie Rich – a singer who, we'll freely admit, is our favorite artist to ever record for Sun Records!
