Ace (UK), Mid 60s. New Copy
Overlooked work from Jimmy Murphy – an artist who recorded these songs for two small labels in the mid 60s, but who has a feel that's much more like older hillbilly styles overall! The recording quality is nice and stripped down – the labels were almost going for an older revival feel ... CD

Mississippi, 1940s/1950s/1960s. New Copy 6 LPs
A stunning tribute to the great Alan Lomax – the legendary musicologist, historian, and recording engineer who captured so many wonderful American sounds in the 20th Century!

Southern Routes, Early 60s. New Copy
Excellent early work from the legendary George Jones – easily one of the best singers to ever grace the field of country music, heard here at a seminal turning point when he was really starting to find his sound! The collection brings together early Mercury and United Artists recordings by ... CD

Rosemary Lane
Transatlantic (UK), 1971. New Copy
Tremendous work from Bert Jansch – an album that shows how much he'd evolved in just a few short years – both as a singer and as a musician, and as a completely unique talent on his own! The record has an instantly timeless feel – that mix of ancient inspiration and new freedoms ... CD

Birthday Blues
Transatlantic (UK), 1968. New Copy
One of the greatest albums ever from UK genius Bert Jansch – cut as a solo set at a time when his fame was rising with the group Pentangle, and somewhat overlooked at the time! Yet all these many years later, we'd rank this one right up alongside important records of the period by Nick Drake ... CD

Nicola
Transatlantic/Sanctuary (UK), 1967. New Copy
A beautiful record from the great Bert Jansch – quite different than some of his others at the time, but in a really wonderful way! The set has Bert's vocals and acoustic guitar interwoven with some larger arrangements – not in a commercial style, but in a mode that perfectly ... CD

Dot/Omni (Australia), 1969. New Copy
A really wonderful set from the overlooked Justin Tubb – music that's got a lot more depth than you might know from Justin's earlier music on the Opry scene! This 1969 album has Tubb really coming to terms with the changes taking place in country music at the time – working with both ... CD

Hoe Down Vol 1
Rural Rhythm, 1967. New Copy Gatefold
CD...$4.99 11.98
Dale Potter's a hell of a fiddle player – one who never fully got his due back in the day, but who really shines forth on this overlooked gem from the late 60s! Dale's working here in a very spare, stripped-down format – alongside some excellent steel guitar from Jim Murphy, whose ... CD

Ace (UK), Late 40s/Early 50s. New Copy
Sublime sounds from one of the best harmony duos in the hillbilly business – Delmore Brothers Alton and Rabon, sounding completely wonderful here on an early selection of singles cut for King Records! The music's definitely got some of the harmonies and acoustic elements from more bluegrass-o ... CD

Attic Tapes
Riverboat, Early 60s. New Copy
Never-heard recordings from Brit folk legend John Renbourn – tapes that lay in an attic for many decades before discovery, but music that easily ranks with some of Renbourn's best albums for the Transatlantic label in the 60s! The music here isn't rough or unformed, and instead shows John to ... CD

Queen Of Rockabilly
Capitol/Ace (UK), Late 50s/Early 60s. New Copy

Light In The Attic, Late 60s. New Copy Gatefold
A dream of a guitar record from the Memphis scene of the late 60s – recorded as one of the first albums on the Ardent Records label, but never issued at the time – although done in a style that's a lot more like some of the guitar explorations by John Fahey or Robbie Basho on the Takoma ... LP, Vinyl record album
CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
Capitol/Omnivore, Late 60s/Early 70s. New Copy 2CD
An amazing run of music from the mighty Buck Owens – one of the few country music stars of his time who never made a mis-step at all, and instead gave us nearly two decades' worth of incredible records for Capitol! Some of the best cuts from that stretch are presented here, alongside a ... CD

Cold Heart Of Steel
Righteous (UK), 1950s. New Copy
Nothing cold here, just love sick honky tonk from Joe & Rose Lee Maphis – from waltz pattern dusty duo numbers and more from one of the great husband & wife teams in the 50s country racket! The traditional honky tonk style is done wonderfully by these two, and Joe's country guitar ... CD

Columbia/Sundazed, 1969. New Copy (reissue)
Johnny returns to prison for another incredible set – a set might be an even more remarkable portrait of the Man In Black at his raucous best than the uber legendary Live At Folsom Prison!

CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
Sun/Sundazed, 1957. New Copy (reissue)
Johnny's debut for Sun and his first LP ever – and one of the best country and/or rock records of the 1950s! As you'd expect, Cash is in his most raw and fiery mode on Hot And Blue, and it features his original recordings of "I Walk The Line", "Cry, Cry, Cry", "Wreck ... LP, Vinyl record album

Elektra/BGO (UK), Late 60s. New Copy 2CD

Sun/Sundazed, 1961. New Copy (reissue)
A top shelf early 60s dip by Sun Records into their Johnny Cash archives of the mid-to-late 50s – beautiful stuff that features the first appearance on LP of some of the great early singles in the rock solid, raw style that made the Cash name – as well is some rollicking pre-Columbia ...
