Folk/Country — Recently Added

XA huge range -- from pre-war string bands, to hillbilly music, Bakersfield country, bluegrass, Nashville hits, jug bands, Folkways records, and work from the acoustic underground!

Capitol, 1968. New Copy 2LP Gatefold
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 – ... LP, Vinyl record album

Michael Hurley

Blue Hills
Mississippi, 2010. New Copy
The Hurley machine keeps heaving forward – stepping out here in a set of contemporary recordings, but with sounds that are as timeless as anything else we've heard from him before! The album begins with a haunting number that features just vocals and electric piano – but played in ways ... LP, Vinyl record album
Columbia/BGO (UK), Early 70s. New Copy 2CD
A trio of fantastic duet albums from this legendary team – all presented in a single set! Me & The First Lady is the second record to pair the incredible vocals of George Jones and Tammy Wynette – and it also marks a real shift in the careers of both musicians – a rise to the ... CD
RCA/BGO (UK), Late 60s/Early 70s. New Copy 2CD
Four of the more obscure RCA albums from the great Bobby Bare – all brought together here in a single set! First up is the very unusual English Countryside album – a special set that has the vocals of Bobby Bare paired with a group from the UK – Liverpool's Hillsiders, who sing ... CD
Mississippi, 2002. New Copy
Really beautiful later work from Michael Hurley – a set recorded in the 21st Century, and with some slightly more sophisticated settings than some of Hurley's earliest records – yet still overflowing with all the charms that make his music so great! Hurley handles guitar, vocals, and a ... LP, Vinyl record album

Michael Hurley

Armchair Boogie
Raccoon/Mississippi, 1969. New Copy
A great record from the offbeat legend Michael Hurley – a set that features both spare tunes and others done with a larger band that's full of unusual instrumentation! The spare, ragged little solo tunes are served up on guitar and vocals – numbers that greatly showcase both Hurley's ... LP, Vinyl record album
Altair/Americana Anthropology, 1971. New Copy (reissue)
A record issued in the 70s, but one that documents the legacy of 60s folk in which Peter Isaacson was a part – working as a singer and guitarist in the Village scene at the time, where he honed his skills on songs by Bob Dylan, Tim Hardin, and other contemporaries! The album was recorded ... LP, Vinyl record album
Righteous (UK), Late 50s/Early 60s. New Copy
A collection of classic country that's got way more to offer than the "depressing" in the title might make you think – not tracks that are purposely over the top and full of bad feeling – but instead the kind of well-crafted work that makes postwar country some of the most ... CD
TRC/Bear Family (Germany), Late 70s. New Copy
A whole host of genre-breaking tracks from Texas impresario Augie Meyers – both an artist in the underground country rock scene, and the creative force behind the TRC label, which is showcased here in a variety of different recordings! If you know some of the important criss-crossing styles ... CD
Atco/Music On Vinyl (Netherlands), 1969. New Copy (reissue)
A set with a cover that almost looks like some 80s indie rock record – which is maybe a good indication of just how far Jerry Jeff Walker has stretched out his sound since his debut! The style here is free of the folksier elements of the past – fuller arrangements that have piano and ... LP, Vinyl record album
Ace (UK), Late 60s/Early 70s. New Copy 2LP
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! ... LP, Vinyl record album
Bear Family (Germany), Late 60s. New Copy
A really great collection that brings together some of the most hard-rocking tracks from Wanda Jackson's early years on Capitol Records – a time when the singer became an instant legend for her hard-edged way of putting over a tune! At a time when the early rock scene was dominated by male ... LP, Vinyl record album

Bob Desper

New Sounds
Fata Morgana (Italy), 1974. New Copy (reissue)
A wonderfully moody little record from the Portland scene of the 70s – a set that was originally issued on a Christian label, and pressed in a very small quantity – but which has an underground acoustic vibe that's right up there with some of the most striking UK work at the end of the ... LP, Vinyl record album

Willie Nelson

Phases & Stages
Atlantic, 1974. New Copy (reissue)
An album that wasn't much of a success when released, yet one that really helped define a new era in the sound of Willie Nelson – one that's both as introspective as the concept albums he would soon issue on Columbia, and which also maybe has a bit of the Austin underground creeping into his ... LP, Vinyl record album

Davy Graham

Folk Blues & Beyond
Decca/East Central One (UK), 1964. New Copy (reissue)
A hell of a record, and one that definitely lives up to its promise of folk, blues, and beyond – as Davy Graham here is as comfortable with influences from Jack Elliott and Leadbelly as he is with Chico Hamilton, Bobby Timmons, and Charles Mingus! The album's a very early instance of a ... LP, Vinyl record album
RCA/Ace (UK), Early 60s. New Copy 2CD
A great look at a really lost legacy in music from Charlie Rich – obscure sides recorded for RCA Records in the early 60s – done after his initial rush of genius on Sun Records, and before his later commercial success on Epic! Charlie's got one of the all-time great voices in pop music ... CD
El (UK), Late 50s. New Copy 2CD
A really great document of a unique musical moment – one that happened overseas, but which started a wave of protest that's continued to this day! In the late 50s, London was a hotbed of nuclear protest – one of the first cities to express a strong resistance to the arms race that was ... CD
Hi Records/Fat Possum, Late 60s. New Copy (reissue)
An overlooked gem by the great Charlie Rich – an album recorded for Hi Records in the years before he broke big on Columbia in the late 60s – but at a level that certainly points the way towards his country fame to come! And yet, as with most of the best music by Rich – like his ... LP, Vinyl record album
Bear Family (Germany), Late 50s/Early 60s. New Copy
A wonderfully obscure set of work from Gary Williams – not the blues singers you might expect from the title, but a northwest Pacific country singer who drew plenty of inspiration from the Jimmie Rogers blues folk legacy – which he then served up with a tighter postwar flair! Williams ... CD
Shiloh/Americana Anthropology, 1966. New Copy
The only studio album ever recorded by this important acoustic group – a west coast bluegrass combo whose contributions to the scene were a key influence on the birth of country rock in Los Angeles! The group here are definitely hardcore – a lineup that features work from Clarence ... CD
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 ... CD
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 ... CD
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 ... CD
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! ... 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
BGO (UK), Mid 70s. New Copy
CD...$8.99 19.99
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 ... CD
Lion, 1976. New Copy
CD...$5.99 16.99
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, ... CD
Decca/BGO (UK), Early 60s. New Copy
CD...$5.99 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
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 ... CD
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 ... LP, Vinyl record album
RCA/BGO (UK), Late 70s. New Copy 2CD
CD...$8.99 18.99
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 ... CD

(Cover has some flaking on the spine.) LP, Vinyl record album

Incredible String Band

Kris Kristofferson

Border Lord
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 ... LP, Vinyl record album

John Prine

John Prine
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 ... LP, Vinyl record album

Fairport Convention

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 ... LP, Vinyl record album
