Larry Jon WilsonLet Me Sing My Song To You (180 gram pressing) ... LP
Monument/Be With (UK), 1976. New Copy (reissue)... $18.99
Fantastic work from Larry Jon Wilson – a singer who can be heartbreaking one minute, funky the next – all with a top-shelf sort of vibe that should have made him huge! We'd put Wilson in the company of genre-bending, not-really-country artists like Kris Kristofferson, Townes Van Zandt, and Mickey Newbury – and like the best of their work, there's a very individual vibe to this album – the sound of a singer who's very content to put over his best ideas, even if they'll never mean stardom. The whole thing's great – one of those leftfield 70s country albums that's worth rediscovering all these many years later – and titles include "Drowning In The Mainstream", "I Remember It Well", "Kindred Spirits", "Farther Along", "The Ballad Of Handy Mackey", "Willoughby Grove", and "Sheldon Churchyard".

Larry Jon WilsonNew Beginnings (180 gram pressing) ... LP
Monument/Be With (UK), 1975. New Copy (reissue)... $18.99
Genius work from Larry Jon Wilson – one of those 70s artists who were always a bit hard to peg, and who never got full appreciation until many years later! Larry wasn't one of those guys working off in the "private press" underground – as this set was done for Monument Records, with top shelf studio help – including arrangements from Bergen White, who perfectly captures both Larry's more upbeat moments and his more sensitive ones. At times, there's almost a Tony Joe White sort of funky current to the tunes – while others have the fragility of some of the best west coast singer/songwriter giants. Titles include "New Beginnings", "Lay Me Down Below", "Bertrand My Son", "The Truth Ain't In You", "Broomstraw Philosophers & Scuppernong Wine", and "Melt Not My Igloo". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ David Allen CoeCompass Point/I've Got Something To Say ... CD
Columbia/Bear Family (Germany), 1979/1980. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
Two records that top most of what mainstream country had to offer at the end of the 70s – back to back on a single CD! Compass Point is a record that celebrates ten years of freedom for David Allan Coe – a decade since he was released from prison – and a set that was also recorded at the famous Compass Point studios in the Bahamas, as you might guess from the title! Yet the sound of the record is prime Coe country at its best – tight, confident, yet nicely away from any too-mainstream modes – the balance between almost-stardom and too-honest that always makes for such great tension in his music. Titles include "Three Time Loser", "Gone", "Merle & Me", "Loving Her Will Make You Lose Your Mind", "Xs & Os", and "Heads Or Tails". I've Got Something To Say is a record that offers up plenty of bold statements from the legendary David Allan Coe – but it's also a record that opens the door for a host of great guests and friends – including vocals from Guy Clark, Larry Jon Wilson, Kris Kristofferson, and Bill Anderson. The tunes do a great job of touching on the kinds of themes that always matter to Coe – and titles include "Hank Williams Junior Junior", "The Bottle In My Hand", "Take It Easy Rider", "Back To Atlanta", "Take This Job & Shove It Too", "Lovin You Comes So Natural", and "Get A Little Dirt On Your Hands".
