Country music has changed. Even with a genre that has seemingly always had a fixation for crossover there has been a continued degrading of the roots of the genre, so nowadays what they call country music is virtually indiscernible from pop music. I mean Britney Spears may have a little more bassiness in the recording but she is in essence the same as Taylor Swift (where the bassiness is replaced by the 2 second fiddle solo, which is of course played over a heavily synthesized backdrop.) But most of the Nashville scribes take the Emperor’s New Clothes approach and pretend there is nothing wrong. Well, they do have to protect their jobs I suppose, but there can be no denying that the basic entities of country music, fine songs and sincere down home delivery are but for the odd, make that very odd exception, no longer exist. This phenomenon has been ten years in the making. The late eighties to three quarters of the way through the 90s produced some of the greatest country music ever made. Artists such as Ricky Van Shelton and Randy Travis ruled the charts and there were a swag of new artists coming through of similar talent. There were secondary labels such as Hightone producing traditional style music with a contemporary edge which we all embraced. How times have changed!

 

Some mornings when there is something on the antiques roadshow that

I have already seen I switch over to the country music channel where I try and stomach what I can see for as long as I can. Some young thing with precious little obvious sign of talent is dancing around trying to express some form of sincerity with some song totally lacking in melody and seemingly having the same beat and tempo as the preceding one.

 

So at Yesterday & Today Records we just do not embrace this at all. Why should we, it is not country music. We offer you an alternate universe if you like where everything we have is good and is country…real country music where the “now taboo” subjects of drinkin’, lying’ and cheatin’ are still embraced and where tradition and sincerity are a must have ingredient. We get the independent labels from Nashville and Texas where talent and great songs rule. Where the needs of country music fans are satisfied, where artists such as Merle Haggard are kings and great songs rule. If you like we are the Choice Magazine for country music fans and I don’t mean those who turn the CMT on all day every day and think they enjoy it.

 

So settle back and have a read. If you are convinced you are a real fan then take our word for what is great and reap the reward. By all means give us a call if unsure. If you are a Merle Haggard fan you will love Kenny Seratt, if you are a Ray Price fan you will love Darrell McCall. If you are a Connie Smith or Loretta Lynn fan you will  love the likes of Heather Myles and Amber Digby. If you are worried that you haven’t heard them, don’t! Fans of traditional country music will unreservedly love what we carry.

 

You will find a great selection of cds from $5 in our sales section. No rubbish, and they are genuine bargains. So settle back, rest a spell take your shoes off and give the list a peruse. Thank you.

 

2009 Albums of the Year

1. Ron Williams – The Longer You’re Gone.$30  Ron for the uninitiated is the son of Leona Williams, who of course was married for a time to Merle Haggard. Now, having Merle as a step dad may not have been all smooth sailing but it certainly instilled a spirit of true country music greatness in Ron. If he had been around at the end of the 80s he would have been on a major label and as good and popular  as say Ricky Van Shelton. He has it all. Good looks and those peculiarly personal country music nuances that make for individuality and superb country. A must.

2. Dotty Jack – With Every Heartbeat $30 Just superb.

3. Joey Allcorn – All Alone Again $30 The best Hank III or Wayne the Train album ever is this. That demeans Joey but it is true. If you like Wayne or Hank III you are  guaranteed to love this.

4. Darrell McCall – Keeping With Tradition

5. Jake Hooker – Lost Along the Way $30 the superb vocalist is equally adept as a band leader and musician.

6. Amber Digby – Another Way to Live

 

Reissue of the Year

A tie!!

Mel Street -  “Mel Street/ Country Soul” $34

  2. Teri Joyce: Kitchen Radio
  3. Darrell McCall: Keeping With Tradition
  4. Dottie Jack: With Every Heartbeat
  5. Various Artists: Hillside Records Country Song Roundup

 

 

Kenny Seratt “The Best Of Kenny Seratt” $30  

The reactivated Hillside label has been a blessing in this world where real country music is hard to find. Many bought and loved the “Hillside Country” cd from last year. Most of those were absolutely in awe of Kenny Seratt. Here was a man who sang like Merle Haggard and in his own right was every bit as good as the man. Merle himself has been quoted as saying “ Kenny sang like Lefty & me way before I did!”. The good news is we now have this superb cd. It came out right at the end of December in 2009 so technically it is a 2009 release but realistically a 2010 release and you would almost call the rest of 2010 off and proclaim this album of the year right now. A few years ago I had a cd by an indie guy called Rick Stancil. Now the cd was good but I could help remarking that one track, “Just a Damn Good Drinking Song” was as good as example of that fabulous honky tonk sub-set that I had ever heard, well lo & behold it was a Kenny Seratt song and the original is here! There is a mix of originals and covers. Some of the originals are by songwriters S Stone & J Cunningham. The latter could be the bloke who wrote the David Allan Coe classic “Mona Lisa Lost Her Smile”, as his & Stone’s “I Found Heaven in a Texas Honky Tonk” is a highlight in an album where nothing is less than a highlight. He does a wonderful job on the Tommy Collins song, recorded by Merle Haggard, “Goodbye Comes Hard to Me”. He has the voice and the songs. Why wasn’t he the biggest star in country music? As the late Benny Hill so often said , “How do you define the intangerine?”.  So friends, you get 17 songs and so it is like getting 1 ½ of the best albums Merle Haggard or Lefty Frizzell ever recorded. He is that good. Just amazing. Justin Trevino, who is no slouch himself, reports that on a recent benefit show in Texas, where the absolute crème de la crème of Texas artists performed, Kenny Seratt absolutely stole the show. Said Justin, “People were asking who was he and where has he been!”. Well, you can find out. As far as I know he only ever had one lp (though a few singles of which only one made the Top 40) and now this cd. As good as it gets…maybe even better.

 

Mickey Newbury “Live at the Hermitage” DVD $38 Now, sometimes it is hard to understand how an artist such as the aforementioned Kenny Seratt is a virtual unknown, but twice as hard to work out how Mickey Newbury could have made it given that his lifestyle was not conducive to being discovered and now that he is gone the handling of his material in the hands of his somewhat less than functional family. Good news though is that it is being handled by someone who is a little better than the family member who was handling things last year when in the end we had to give up on obtaining his product. So things are kind of on track, or so it seems. The dvd, recorded in Tennessee’s Hermitage ballroom goes for a mighty 147 minutes and features Mickey performing all his best known songs including “American Trilogy”, “Cortelia Clark”, “Just Dropped In” and “Frisco Mabel Joy” a joyous song about a woman of the night. 22 songs plus interview.

 

Mickey Newbury – “The Mickey Newbury Collection” 8Cds box set. $160 Nicely miniaturised and remastered versions of all his Elektra albums recorded between 1969 and 1981. The albums contained on this set are:

  1. Looks Like Rain
  2. Frisco Mabel Joy
  3. Heaven Help the Child
  4. Live at Montezuma Hall
  5. I Came to Hear the Music
  6. Lovers
  7. Rusty Tracks
  8. His Eye is on the Sparrow
  9. The Sailor
  10. After All These Years

Again, because of the inconsistencies in supply (hopefully in the past) don’t dilly dally too long!

 

Billy Joe Shaver “Live from Luckenbach Texas” $30  DVD

Georgia on a fast train
Honky tonk heroes
Thats what she said last night
The devil made me do it the first time
You asked me to
Im just an old chunk of coal
When the fallen angels fly
Live forever
Hottest thing in town
Follow me down
Love so sweet
You cant beat Jesus Christ

 

**Billy Ed Wheeler – A Big Bag of Songs $28

New 28 track cd by a man who is known for his songs and appreciated by the aficionados for his recordings. His best known songs are  “Jackson” and “The Reverend Mr Black”, both big hits for Johnny Cash (who also recorded other Billy Edd songs that are featured on this album such as “Blistered” and “After Taxes”  and he himself is probably on more than a few compilations with his novelty “Ode to the Little Brown Shack Out Back”. Great songs and great storytelling are his trademarks and the original Monument recordings come up a treat. First time on cd.

 

**Troubled Troubadours – 27 Tales from the Dark and/or Strange Side of the Tracks. $28 Lust, murder, depravity, alienation, war and credit cards!! All our favourite subjects! Great bunch of rare songs by great artists. Marty Robbins sings of a man who is going to meet his maker from the electric chair, Dolly is placing her final steps high above “The Bridge”, and no folks she is not there just to admire the view, and so on. Many and varied  but classic examples of political correctness.

-Tommy Cash – Rise & Shine/ Six White Horses 2 0n 1

- Lorne Greene – The Man

- Henson Cargill – On the Road: The Mega Years Plus

- Johnny Paycheck – Nowhere to Run (this is in the bargains…don’t miss the best George Jones style singer ever…may be even better than George. Don’t judge him on “Take This Job & Shove It”. That was different to this as chalk & cheese.

 

**Augie Meyers – “Country” $30 Forever and a day the co-cort of the late and extremely great Doug Sahm. Also a fabulous musician on keyboards as well as accordion. Whereas Flaco played the button accordion Augie  played the piano style squeeze accordion and Flaco himself was in awe of his great talent thereon. He incorporates his Tex Mex stylings (well he is from San Antonio). He balances the crying in your beer style admirably with the uptempo swinging style. “I’d Be Ashamed” I a waltz. For fans of the Texas Tornados and Dog Sahm.

 

**Heather Myles: In The Wind $30 This is the review of the great Swedish Cowboy. Reason I can’t review it is I never had the opportunity as the first lot went like hotcakes and I still have a few orders to fill. BUT, I never figured that Heather would be so darn hopeless at promoting her own product. This is the first fully independent cd she has put out. The first on her own label. But if you go that way you have to have the product to send and you don’t say you have shipped it when you patently haven’t. So, I am waiting for more stock and that should be here by middle of the month.  Soif you want one get in early. This next lot will probably be the last unless Miss Heather wises up. Here is the Swedish Cowboy’s review. Sometimes he reviews like a doctor writing a prescription but you get the idea…it is a great album. “Heather is the real thing. There is not a bad track here, and all bar 3 songs are originals. However, the final track, a blues with biting blues guitar and plenty of organ, doesn’t really fit in, and #3 is a slowie with plenty of organ! The title track is a bit on the weak side too, so not everything is tops. There are still plenty of great songs and the singing as well as the backing is generally excellent, so this platter is still another goodie from our Heather. Let’s hope the next one doesn’t take as long as this one took. It’s a long time since we last heard from her.”

Tracks:

When Did You Stop Loving me
Broke and Broken Hearted
Shoulder to Cry On
Don’t Call Me
Pretty Poison
Mama’s a Star
Smokin’ Drinkin’ Dancin’ Again
Vaya Con Dios
In the Wind
Walk on By
Right or Wrong
My Baby’s Good to Me!

NOTE: The next lot will be hopefully here next week. Do not miss out.

 

**Gene Watson “Matters of the Heart: Best of the MCA Years” $30 There has been precious little available of Gene Watson’s MCA recordings. This new UK cd changes that and full marks must go to the compilers who have done a sterling job with this 20 tracker. There are the classics “Fourteen Carat Mind”, “Sometimes I Get Lucky and Forget”, the raunchy honky tonker “You’re Just Another Beer Drinking Song” plus great album tracks such as “Three”, “From Cotton to Satin”, “Til Melinda Comes Around” etc . Great and welcome selection by one of the most popular artists we have ever carried.

 

**Cal Smith – “The Best of Cal Smith” $30. This is the first and only cd of Cal Smith’s original MCA recordings. There have been two earlier cds, both re-recordings but these are the originals. The 3 number ones are all here; “The Lord Knows I’m Drinking”, “Country Bumpkin” and “It’s Time to Pay the Fiddler”plus other favourites such as “Jason’s Farm”, “Between Lust and Watching TV”, “An Hour and a Six Pack”, “Macarthur’s Hand”, “Bits & Pieces of Life” etc. 16 must have tracks and again all the originals. 

 

**Amber Digby “Another way to Live” $30 Amber is as close as it gets to  royalty in the Yesterday and Today Records Palace of Musical perfection. 12 new songs and for the first time we get some Amber originals, of which the best is “Lie to Him”, an absolute classic cowritten with the significantly great Justin Trevino. Amber’s father, Dicky Overby contributes some wonderful steel guitar lines. If you haven’t heard Dicky play steel you simply haven’t heard one of the very best. As good as it gets. But in reflection is it as good as “After it Break”, a wonderful song about the demise of a relationship (with some great mandolin hidden in the mix). Or is “Soul Survivor” (perhaps autobiographical?) the winner in the Amber writes. Let’s say they are all great. Dicky Overby’s superb “Wrong Number” must also qualify as an original. Classic song. The covers are all great too. Amber’s status as a classic vocalist is enforced again on Jack Clement’s great “Just Someone I Used to Know”. There are doubting Thomases everywhere. If I said Amber was as good as anyone in the history of country music then they would say I was wrong. Did you see the audition Susan Boyle did for “You Think You’ve Got Talent”?? The entire place was prepared to laugh at her but she shut them up when she sang. Doubters, are you game enough to have Amber shut you up!! Superb co-production with Justin Trevino. What a talent.

Amber’s other albums:

*Music from the Honky Tonks $30

*Here Comes the Teardrops $30

*Passion Pride & What Might Have Been $30

 

**Darrell McCall “Keeping With Tradition” $30 Amazing album. The Heart of Texas crew of Jake Hooker on Bass, Dickey Overby on Steel, Hank Singer on fiddle is as godo as the famous A team. Of all the Ray Price inspired vocalists I have no doubt that Darrell McCall is the best. Darrell’s kids Guyanne (as a songwriter) and Cody (as harmony vocalist) make substantial contributions. Darrell’s endlessly tuneful voice is as good as it ever was. “Hello Out There” is  a wonderfully pretty waltz. As pretty a melody as you would ever hear and some wonderful Grady Martin style acoustic guitar to boot. Justin Trevino, who continues to amaze with his production talents has again masterminded a wonderful recording. He joins Darrell on the George Jones/Roger Miller song “That’s the Way I Feel”. Again, I have to mention Dicky Overby on steel. “The Kind of Love” is an excellent western swing tune, by sometimes Wills’ fiddler Jesse Ashlock. Great and then some and what’s more Heart of Texas have reissued 2 of Darrell’s excellent albums from the early 90s on 1 cd:

“A Way to Survive & All I Did was Fall in Love”. Both were on the Artrap label and just wonderful. The former has one of his best ever songs in “Christmas in Cell #9” and the latter has a great duet with his very talented wife, Mona McCall, who appeared on the Opry as part of the Carol Lee singers (silly old Cosmic Cowboy though they were the Clair Poole singers…). Two gems now on 1 cd for $30

 

**Curtis Potter/Tony Booth/ Darrell McCall “The Survivors”. $30 My late dad was the very opposite of my mother and I. He had zero musical appreciation, well as little as humanly possible, so it came as a surprise when he said he liked anyone. It actually happened twice, so I dare say his compliments weren’t torrent like. The first (actually second chronologically) was when he heard Curtis Potter sing with Willie Nelson on “Six Days in Pedernales” (a copy of which appears in the sale section). Well, lo & behold, this gem reminds me how right he was. These 3 are great vocalists. Tony Booth, a fine fettle of a man, was on Capitol Records as a contemporary of Buck Owens. All three are influenced by Ray Price but each has his own distinct voice. Darrell is not generally known as a writer (even though he did write the big Hank Williams Junior hit “Eleven Roses”) but shows he still has it with the great “Whiskey Man” . The classic “It Is No Secret” is superbly handled with each man trading lines. The sign of a true talent is when they can weave their magic on something we are familiar with and give it new life. A surplus of riches. **Incidentally the only other artist my father actually said he liked was Leonard Cohen, who he affectionately referred to as “Ikey” Cohen” (now before anyone goes and complains about racial epithets this was also what his high school English teacher was called by all & sundry)…So there!

 

**Landon Dodd “Call of the Wine” $30 Great voice, songs and album and not surprisingly on Heart of Texas label, who we would almost consider the new Hightone, in that everything on the label has a quality that is impossible to bypass. And this has 2 examples of that staple of country music, the duet. And how special they are! “We’re Off and Loving Again” is a Leona Williams’ song and the great lady duets on it…superbly. BUT, sounding like Tim Shaw, there is till more and that is “Mr Right & Mrs Wrong” with Amber Digby (credited as Mrs Wrong). A wonderful jaunty song about a mismatched relationship. The dynamic Bobby Flores is superb. “Face the Music” is a great honky tonk number. It is also a must.

 

OTHERS

*Arnold, Eddy “Memorial Best” $35 Japan pressing 25 tracker. Superb sound and selection.

*Tony Booth – Is This All There is $30

*Tony Booth – The Essential $30 first is last year recordings, the second

 from his time on Capitol label. Both are great.

* Richie Furay Band – Alive 2cds $35

* Richie Furay The Heartbeat of Love $35 The first is a live retrospective by the former Poco & Buffalo Springfield member. And the second was his first non religious recording in many yearswith a wonderful book style cover. Just great.

* Lucas Hudgins – The World Left is Mine $30 Great honlky tonk produced by Dave Biller in Texas.

*Dotty Jack – Texan in a Stetson $30

*Bobby Marquez – Bobby Marquez $30 Great new singer who almost steals the show on the Ernest Tubb Midnight Jamboree dvd

*Myles, Heather – “Just Like Old Times” $30 …her debut on Hightone.

Someone asked me about this.

*Kimmie  Rhodes & Willie Nelson – Picture in a Frame $30 Duets!

*Leon Russell – “Bad Country”  $30 Wow, a Leon country album we missed. Well it is on his own label. Seems it was recorded 2003 except the title track (which Leon fans will be reminded of “Me & Baby Jane”, a great song from Carney). So it is varying in its country-ness. “Honky tonk Dream” is pretty much the pure deal!!

**Starline rhythm Boys “Masquerade for a Heartache” $28 A follow up to their great Live at Charlie O’s album for the rockin’ hillbillies!

**Jerry Webb – There’s a Song in That $30 (all originals and all honky tonk)

 

 

Bear Family Records News

The great German label will be fairly quiet for the beginning of the year with a few releases but then they will have a big lot of releases in March. As always we get Bear Family cds directly from Bear Family and the March releases will be here a day or so after their release, along with the February releases. So please call as soon as you spot something to your fancy.

 

February Releases

*DVD Town Hall Party March 28 1959 $35 The line up is outstanding on this 87 minute dvd with the headliner being Leon McAuliffe, along with Faron Young, the fabulous Gordon Terry, Skeets McDonald, Tex Ritter, Rose Lee & Joe Maphis, Collins Kids, Johnny Bond etc.

 

*DVD Town Hall Party July 25th & August 15th 1959. This 114 minute dvd features Merle Travis, Martha Carson, the fabulous blind musician Jimmy Pruett (who steals the show on previous issues he has been on), Gene Vincent (!) plus most from the previous volume, and I am keen to see Gordon Terry do “Tennessee Stud” and more of the great Jimmy Pruett.

 

**DVD Town Hall Party August 29th and September 5th 1959. 92 minute dvd features the regulars from the previous 2 volumes plus Bob Luman, Freddie Hart, the great Lefty Frizzell and an appearance by Fred Maddox. That is something I am looking forward to seeing.

 

The Town Hall Party DVDS are always entertaining with great restored picture and sound quality. Everyone who has bought them in the past want one thing and that is MORE of them.

 

* CD Jimmy Donley “The Shape You Left Me In” $32 A New Orleans based singer and musician he had 6 of his songs recorded by fellow New Orleans resident Fats Domino. Unlike the amiable Fats he was an angry young man, at least when he was drunk (and Bear Family points out he was always drinking), so the title track takes on an additional meaning. He recorded for Decca Nashville and all his recordings are included here.

 

* CD Big Jeff Bess “Tennessee Home Brew” $35 digipak including 88 page book. Jeff was the husband of “Tootsie” and yes he founded the iconic Nashville institution “Tootsie’s Orchid Lounge”. He was also a radio legend and his performing band featured members of the Nashville a team. His most famous song was “Step it Up and Go” and is featured here as are vintage radio performances and 32 tracks in all. The notes say pure country and swinging hillbilly. Sounds good.

 

* CD Jimmy Edwards “Love Bug Crawl”  $32 Complete recordings and a full discography by Colin Escott. Features his entire output. His title track was a country music top 10 on Mercury records and was so successful he was sent out on tour with Buddy Holly & the Everly Brothers.

 

* CD “A Girl Named Johnny Cash: an Album of Tribute Songs”. Always popular this is a gam as it features a bunch of previously unreleased recordings by one of country music’s greatest vocalists, the highly Frizzell and Haggard influenced Stoney Edwards. Stoney performs no less than 9 tributes: 

  1. The Night the Ernest Tubb Show Came to Town
  2. Cash
  3. Roy Acuff, the King of country Music
  4. The Jimmie Rodgers Blues
  5. Bob wills, the Fiddlin’ Man
  6. Hag Sang Me A Song
  7. Red Foley
  8. Bill Monroe – Daddy Bluegrass
  9. Hank and Lefty Raised my Country Soul

The  title track is from the recording of Jane Morgan, and is both a tribute and answer song. Haggard chips in with a fine couple in “Leonard”, his tribute to Tommy Collins and “Goodbye Lefty”. And then there is the old  favourite “The Ballad of Johnny Cash” by the fabulous Gordon Terry. This cd should be in everyone’s collection for sure!!

 

* CD Smiley Lewis “Smiley Rocks” $35 The new Orleans artist so readily identified with the great Fats Domino and a famous artist in his own right with songs such as “I Hear You Knocking” which was revived and was a big hit for Dave Edmunds. This is a 35 track gem which covers his classic Imperial label recordings.

 

* CD Ramblin’ Jack Elliott “At Lansdowne Studios London, these recordings date from 1955 when Jack was at the centre of the folk revival movement and date through 1959 when Jack returned to England where he recorded an album of songs by Jimmie Rodgers and Woody Guthrie. This cd has 33 tracks and has 5 previously unissued recordings, not that any of this has been available on cd before. $32

 

* CD Christine Kittrell “Call Her Name” $32 inc, 40 pg booklet A versatile singer who was part of the R & B face of NAshvilel in the 40s and 50s. She recorded for the Tennessee, Republic, Champion, Vee-Jay, Hit/Spar and Federal labels and on several tracks is backed by Little Richard.

 

March Releases CDS

 

**Buck Owens – Open Up Your Heart 7 cds + 120pg hard cover book. The second volume in Bear Family’s continuing Buck Owens reissue series includes everything recorded between 1965 and 1968 and also includes the Buckaroos albums. It was Buck Owens who had personally organised with Bear Family to reissue his complete works as only they can. This was Buck’s most successful period with all singles going to number 1 on the charts. They include gems such as “Waiting in Your Welfare Line”, “Sam’s Place”, “Open Up Your Heart” as well as the theme song “Buckaroo”. All up has 249 tracks with a running time of around 7 ½ hours. So, as always we say Bear Family is not cheap but there is imply nothing but quality and with so much great music they are cheaper than a plumber!!   $270

 

**Carl Smith – “Hey Joe: Gonna Shake This Shack Tonight” $32 Sad to report Carl Smith passed away at the end of January. This collection of his uptempo and semi rockabilly songs features 34 songs and clocks in at an impressive 80 minutes. It includes the duet he did with his then wife, June Carter, on “Time’s a Wastin’”, and he really rocks out on “Cut Across Shorty”. All the great Smith hits such as “Loose Talk”, “Go Boy Go”, “Trademark”, “Doggone it Baby I’m in Love” are all here. Sadly, a very timely release.

 

**Johnny Horton “The Ballads of Johnny Horton” $35 Deluxe digipak presentation. The Bear Family box of Johnny Horton is now out of print. Whilst he made his name with mainly uptempo songs his great voice was equally adept at the ballads and this has 25 with a running time of just under 70 minutes. Horton had surprisingly few hits in his lifetime and generally the a-side was an uptempo number. The b side was often a ballad and included well known Horton songs such as “Whispering Pines” and the fabulous “All for the Love of a Girl” plus lesser known songs such as “Counterfeit Love” and “The Mansion You Stole”. It also includes some of his peerless story songs like “Commanche (the Brave Horse)” and “When It’s Springtime in Alsaka (It’s 40 Below). Bring it on!

 

**Smoke that Cigarette: Pleasure to Burn $35 deluxe digipak This is gonna go straight on the must haves list. 32 tracks and over 85 minutes of songs about smoking, both the pleasures and evils and consequences of. The issue of cigarettes as a health hazard has only been of fairly recent origins. It was also seen as something socially unacceptable for women (in certain areas) and this includes a 1939 recording by Rev. J M Gates about the evils of a “Smoking Woman in the Street” and whilst it sticks mainly to country tracks there is a selection of pop gems included such as Peggy Lee’s “Don’t Smoke in Bed” and Johnny Ray’s “Coffee and Cigarettes”. There are only a few obvious choices such as Tex Williams “Smoke! Smoke! Smoke! That Cigarette” and Patsy Cline’s “Three Cigarettes in an Ashtray”, the majority will be things most will be unfamiliar with and even includes a Slim Dusty track ‘Sad Cigarette”.

The notes are by music historian Hank Davis and include vintage advertisements.

 

**Don Woody “You’re Barking Up the Wrong Tree” $25 This is Bear Family’s first ever ep and has 11 songs on it, 9 by Don and two he wrote, Brenda Lee’s first single “Bigelow 6-200” (the b-side of “Jambalaya”) and Billy Eustis “The Rope”. This is issued as Don Woody is going to appear at a big rockabilly festival in 2010. His 4 Decca rockabilly tracks (which also appear on Vols 2 & 6 of “That’ll Flat Git It”) are as good as anything you’d ever hear and feature the guitar of Grady Martin. “Morse Code” may be the best of the lost and belies the belief that all rockabilly tracks are of a frantic uptempo nature. Opening with a great slap bass (that emulates the sound of morse code), this is a classic through and through. For anyone who doesn’t have the abovementioned
“That’ll Flat Git It” vols 2 & 6 put this on your list!

 

**Rudy Grazzell “Lets Get Wild” $32 First ever cd by a man revered in rockabilly circles but equally able to perform classic country. This has 32 tracks clocking in over 80 minutes and features his recordings for Starday, Capitol, Sun, Abbott & Award. Like Don Woody he will also be  at the 2010 “Viva Las Vegas” rockabilly festival. He was responsible for 2 of rockabilly’s most defining moments in “Don’t Mess with My Ducktail” and “Let’s Get Wild” and includes his cover of the classic “Hearts of Stone”. He was a wild man as well and the notes include details of his singing “Ducktail” to a group of women in a cemetery. Now, that will be good!!

 

**Jack Earls & the Jimbos “Slow Down: The Sun Years plus” 2 cds $45 Includes all his Sun recordings plus previously unissued tracks as well as recordings made when he moved from Memphis to Michigan where he become a local legend. Runs to over 2 hours (including a 23 minute interview) and features 41 tracks.

 

**The Treniers – Rock $35 The Treniers were one of rock an roll’s greatest performers incorporating great dance moves in their stage act as well as a sound that was highly influential on Bill Haley & the Comets. As such they were in demand for movies such as “The Girl Can’t Help It” and “Don’t Knock the RocK”. They were also one of the first groups to make a living performing in Las Vegas. Because of their performance schedule they were probably not able to get as many records made as  they should have and so this 82 minute cd is a real pearl for rock and roll fans. The song “It Rocks! It Rolls! It swings!” sums them up beautifully. Also includes the rather ribald “PoonTang’ as well as “Rock-a Beatin’ Boogie” which was given to them with great admiration from Bill Haley. Do yourself a favour and type in Treniers on youtube!

 

**The Sound of Tiki $35 with 52 page booklet in deluxe digipak. This is the sound of lounge music and was something that all hi fi nuts went (well) nutty over. Includes selections from Martin denny, Arthur Lyman, Les Baxter and more.

Rarities

 

These are mostly one offs and virtually all impossible to get.

 

Axton, Hoyt                                      Spin of the Wheel (DPI).  Perhaps his

                                                last album and one of the best with 9

                                                            originals, 2 covers of his mother’s

                                                            songs (inc. a great version of “Heart-

                                                            Break Hotel”) + 3 other covers $25

Austin, Chad                                     All My Dreams $25 It some times happens that a record company sends out some  advance copies of an album and yet never releases the thing. This is from 1999 and is  very good on the Asylum/Elektra label.

Barker, Aaron                                  w. Curtis Wayne “Straight from Horse’s

                                                            Mouth” $22 BSI label. Both

                                                            are famed songwriters as well as

                                                            great singers. 12 tracks inc. the 2 big

                                                Barker tracks “Baby Blue” and “Love

                                                Without End Amen” plus the Curtis

                                                            Wayne monsters “Love Bug” and “Next

                                                            In Line” (both co-writes with Wayne

                                                Kemp). Also includes co-writes with

                                                Dean Dillon & Whitey Shafer. 10/10!!

Barnes, Max D                                   Max D Barnes was one of Nashville's              greatest songwriters and often co-wrote

with the likes of Vern Gosdin. Whether by     coincidence or design he is vocally reminiscent   of Vern. This is just about impossible to find and this copy is as new, absolute pristine condition. 15 tracks. $45 Almost impossible to get a copy.

Bellamy Brothers                            Rebels Without a Clue $30. This is their

                                                            gem from 1988 with superb songs with a

                                                            theme of nostalgia. They sing about “The

                                                            Andy Griffith Show”, reflecting on their

                                                            youth in the title song and “Fountain of

                                                            Middle Age” and the great story of “The

                                                            Courthouse”.

Bogguss, Suzy/Chet Atkins           Simpatico Liberty (1994) $25 A classic with great interplay especially on “Sorry Seems to Be the Hardest Word” and the delightful “Two Shades of Blue”. It has a great down home feel esp. when Chet & Suzy share a duet. Equally loved by Chet & Suzy fans.

Larry Boone                                      Swingin’ Doors Sawdust Floors $30

                                                            Down That River Road $35

                                                            One Way to Go $25

First 2 on Mercury & last on Columbia. First is very muchGeorge Strait style with original versionof “Beyond the Blue Neon”. Second has

“Everybody Wants to Be Hank Williams”

a classic and the 3rd has a great ballad selection, “It wouldn’t Kill Me” was covered by others But Larry is best. All great esp. if you like Strait & Ricky Van!

Browne, Jann                                   It Only Hurts When I Laugh $25

                                                            Perky west coast gal who had 2 albums

                                                            on Curb which are both superb. This

                                                1991 features great covers & Browne

                                                            originals. If you like Heather Myles then

                                                Jann is a must. They go quickly.

Cartwright, Lionel               Lionel Carwright $28 Classic album from

1989 which saw Lionel line up against Clint Black & Garth Brooks as best new artist of the Year. Superb w. Paul Overstreet song “Like  Father Like Son”.

Cash, Tommy                              25th Anniversary Album $30 Features

George Jones, Connie Smith, Tom T Hall and Tommy’s brother…now what’s his name again??

Conlee, John                                Fellow Travellers $30 His 1989 16th  Ave

                                                            label album is a classic but the label

                                                            went belly up, so a real rarity.                                       

Cryner, Bobbie                                 Bobbie Cryner $35  Until Miss Leslie’s 2008 album of the year this was the only time I had heard a  gal sing like George Jones. This is the best ever female country  album released during my years in business. Dwight duets “I Don’t Care”. If you get it and don’t love it send it back & I will eat it. Traditionally sound as well as being relevant to modern country.

Dalton, Lacy J                                   Crazy Love $30 Lacy’s gem has a great

Version  classic as the title song but the highlight was unquestionably “Little Boy Blue” a superb ballad written about her son. Goose bumps!

Delray, Martin                                   What Kind of Man $30 1992 Atlantic

Now a professional tennis coach. The fact   that country music could think they could let this wonderful vocalist walk away is nuts is scary. Check out Hugh Moffatt’s “Life of a Minor Poet” for a rare   appearance. Wonderful.

Ford, Tennessee Ernie                   Capitol Collectors Series $35

                                                            This series is simply the best offering

                                                            by all the artists who are featured

                                                            on it. This 29 track Ernie cd features

                                                            all the country boogies, the big hits

                                                (“Sixteen Tons” “River of No Return”

                                                            “Mule Train” etc) plus some great duets

                                                            w. Kay Starr, Ella Mae Morse etc and the

                                                            gospel “His Hands”. Brilliant variety.

Freberg, Stan                                   Capitol Collectors Series $35 We will try &include all in this series where possible. The best Freberg compilation includes his classic takes on “A Dear John Letter” (including that great line “Make it more country…a little more husky on the Ferlin”). 21 super tracks.

Frickie, Janie                         Labor of Love $28

                                                            After Midnight $25

            Her 3 albums where she adapted the

                                                phoenetic spelling of her real name

                                                            “Fricke” were her best. “Labor of Love”

                                                            saw her include songs  from Steve Earle

                                                            & Katy Moffatt & is not to be missed.

Gosdin, Vern                                       Alone $35 The album that followed the epic“Chiselled in Stone” may be one of the saddest albums about a deteriorating relationship since Willie’s epic “Phases & Stages”. Wundabar!!

Gosdin, Vern                                     Nickels Dimes & Love $25 Great album with the highlight being the duet with Janie Frickie on “Two Good People (With a Love Gone Bad)” No-one sings of heartache better than Vern!!

Grand, Gil                                          Famous Last Words $25 (never released)

Haggard, Merle                                Capitol Collectors Series Simply the best single cd anthology of Haggard’s best work with all the classics and more $25 Best sound.

Haggard, Merle                                Chill Factor  $38 long out of print 1987 gem from Merle. 9 songs written by Merle plus one each from Whitey Shafer & Hank Cochran. Can’t get much better than that.

Hardwick, Billy Jnr                          Too Country $28 Only album and a true

                                                            gem. With a voice a tad like Dean Dillon

                                                he wrote 8 of the 10 songs and all have

                                                            instant classic. Whenever I played this

                                                someone bought it. It is that good.

Harris, Emmylou                             Last Date. The out of print issue on                                                                    Eminent label of Emmy’s peak period live

                                                            album with Barry Tashian on harmony &

                                                            & duet vocal. These have 2 unissued

                                                            tracks on them. Nice slipcase on 1 of the

                                                            two copies we have. $35 with slip jacket                                                          & $30 without.

Hobbs, Becky                                   All Keyed Up $30 Wrote every song on

                                                            the album in which “Jones on the

                                                            Jukebox” (a co-write with Mack Vickery

                                                            and Don Goodman) is the classic all time

                                                            female honky tonk track.

Honeys                                              Capitol Collectors Series $40 This is the group which features Brian Wilson’s future wife  Marilyn Rovell and is produced by Brian Wilson who uses his Spector influence to produce a Ronettes’ style. “Raindrops” is a superb take on

the Spector sounds and includes great original songs and select covers. Very rare!!

House, James                                   James House $30

House, James                                   Hard Times for an Honest Man $38

                                                            Two gems from 1989 & 1990 which

                                                            indicate a great singer & songwriter.

                                                            Both very collectible.

Husky, Ferlin                                    Capitol Collectors Series $35 See the

                                                comments for Merle Haggard & Ernie

                                                Ford. This 20 tracker has the hits

                                                            “Gone”, “A Fallen Star” & “Wings of a

                                                Dove”. Superb sound & notes too.

Jenkins                                              Greetings from Sebastapool cd + dvd

$30 . It was due to be released  2004 but some  reason was inexplicably dropped from the release schedule, which is hard to fathom given the dubious quality of 99% of the country music that comes out of Nashville today....well they call it country so it must be. The production is first class with that great producer/artist Rodney Crowell at the helm. The Jenkins are a mother and 2 daughters... yes a bit like the Judds with an extra one chucked in for good measure. The mum is Nancy and the daughters Kacie & Brodie.  The sound is a little bluegrass with great harmonies. It is inexplicable that this didn't get released. Crazy. This official advance release is a stunning package. It is in the form of a postcard booklet with six postcards within a bound cover.

Jones, David                                     Bridges $35 Truly fabulous independent album from 1994 on Lanor Records which has an  an outlaw feel and brilliantly crafted honky  tonk songs such as “The Tears OutWeigh theWhiskey”. Would be loved by Shaver fans.

Jones, David Lynn               Hard Times on Easy Street $35 Not to be

confused with the previous guy. He has a

Springsteen “Nebraska” style almost & his superb “Living in the Promiseland” was the title of one of Willie’s best albums.

Jones, George                                  You Oughta Be Here With Me $38 In

                                                            the overall scheme of things George

                                                            has not made a lot of albums where

                                                            every song is superb. To the contrary

                                                            many albums are riddled with hokey

                                                            novelties. Not this one though. From

                                                            1990 I would rate it the strongest

                                                            overall selection of songs George has

                                                            ever had on one album. The title track

                                                            was from Roger Miller’s superb “Big

                                                River’ whilst “I Sleep Just Like a Baby”

                                                is the closest it gets to a novelty but

                                                            clever wordplay overrides. 10/10

Jones, George                      Friends in High Places $30 Duet album

                                                            with all songs recorded specifically.

                                                            Includes Ricky Van Shelton,

                                                            Vern Gosdin, Randy Travis, Ricky

                                                            Skaggs etc but the highlight is probably

                                                            his duet with Shelby Lynne on the Paul

                                                Overstreet song “If I Could Bottle This

                                                Up”. She could have been anything..

Jones, George                                  Live at Dancetown USA $45 Amazing

                                                  album superbly recorded which was

                                                            on Ace UK label but has been deleted

                                                            10 years or so, 26 tracks and over an

                                                            an hour running time and in great

                                                            stereo sound. Like the Ernest Tubb

                                                            below (also from 1965!) this is amazing

                                                and George runs through things he has

                                                written (“Window Up Above”/ “Ragged

                                                            But Right”/ “Accidentally on Purpose”)

                                                            as well as songs by Dickey Lee (“She

                                                            Thinks I Still Care”) Harlan Howard,

                                                            Melba Montgomery etc. Although not a

                                                            regular “Jones boy” Buddy Emmons

                                                joins the band for this set. Also Don

                                                            Adams (not Max Smart!) acts as the

                                                            leader of the Jones’ Boys & duets with

                                                George on Melba Montgomery’s “We

                                                            Must Have Been Out Of Our Mind” as

                                                            well as a couple of his own leads.

                                                Just remembered the classic Jones’ line

                                                            “We’re gonna take a short liquor-

                                                            mission I mean intermission”!!

Kane, Keiran                                       Find My Way Home $30  rare post

                                                            O’Kanes pre Kane-Welch album.

Kemp, Wayne                                   One Song at a Time $30 A rare album by this great honky tonk songwriter & singer inc. “The Fireman” and “Don’t Send Me No Angels”.

Logan, Josh                                       Somebody Paints the Wall $48

                                                            Superb 1988 Curb album. He embodies

                                                the spirit of the wondrous Mel Street.

                                                            Amazingly good album.

McCarters                                         The Gift $40  Wonderful debut inc. great

                                                            Carl Jackson & Jennifer McCarter track

                                                            “Letter from Home”.

McCarter, Jennifer/McCarters      Better Be Home Soon $25 equally as good but first is very very hard to get. Jennifer McCarter was given top billing on the second but the harmonies are the same & slight bluegrass tinged songs are ace!

McDaniel, Mel                                   Rockabilly Boy $35 1989 Capitol gem

                                                            with some superb tracks inc. “Reverend

                                                            Luther & The Madam” and “You Can’t

                                                Play the Blues in an Air Conditioned

                                                            Room”, a huge personal favourite.

McEntire, Reba                                 Oklahoma Girl 2cds $38 Nicely presented

                                                            in a slip case with 40 Mercury tracks.

                                                            How good was she then when she still

                                                            had a surname. Fabulous & hard to get.

McQuaig, Scott                                 Scott McQuaig $25 Again an album with

                                                Jimmy Bowen hallmark and superb as

                                                            you may expect. Where did he go??

                                                            Dave Loggins “My Friend the Bottle” is

                                                            a classic honky tonk song. .

Moffatt, Katy                                    Greatest Show on Earth $28 Our #1 all

                                                            time folk country album. Lots of jointly

                                                            written songs with Tom Russell & a

                                                            super circus themed cover BUT Ringling

                                                            Bros circus objected & so this version                                                               had to be withdrawn. It was released as

                                                            “Evangeline Hotel” which we have for

                                                            $20 but this is the one to get.

Morse, Ella Mae                                Capitol Collectors Series $35 21 tracks

                                                with a big band R & B flavour but also

                                                            country. Best ever “Cow Cow Boogie”

Nelson, Willie                                   A Horse Called Music $38

Nelson, Willie                                   Born for Trouble $38 Late 80s gems long

                                                            deleted & featuring great songs by the

                                                            likes of Beth Nielsen Chapman (the super

                                                            “Nothing I Can Do About It Now”) the

                                                            poetically named Chester Lester & more.

Newbury, Mickey                             Lulled By the Moonlight $30 A 90s album of all new material.

O’Kanes                                             Tired of the Running $35  Second

                                                            album from Keiran Kane & Jamie

                                                            O’Hara is also hardest to get. Blind

                                                            accordionist Jay Spell is superb.

O’Kanes                                             Imagine That $25 Third and final cd      

                                                from 1990.

Owens, Buck                                    Hot Dog $35

Kickin’ In $35 Buck Owens comeback albums both of which are out of print and very hard to

                                                            find at all.

Price, Ray                                         Sometimes a Rose $28 Wonderful album

                                                            Of early 90s which proves that if there is

                                                            anything smoother than Ray Price’s voice

                                                            then it has never been found. “There’s

                                                            Not a Dry Eye in the House” is amazing.

Randall, Jon                                      Cold Coffee Morning $30 Couple of small

                                                            marks on inner side of front paperwork but perfect otherwise. The thing that is strange is that Jon Randall has had 3 cds released, none of which was within a country mile of this gem which never made it to the street. He had a history as well. As Randy Stewart (full name Jon Randall Stewart) he was a member of Emmylou Harris' Nash Ramblers and was a talented vocalist and instrumentalist and even had a bigger profile in that he was married to Lorrie Morgan. Who wasn't you might say, but the duet on "Knowing You're There" is just great. Nonetheless the creme de la creme of this fine album is "Reno & Me", a great track which had been recorded by Waylon Jennings, but even Waylon's version was no match for the Jon Randall version. Joined by Willie Nelson, it is not an exaggeration to say it is one of Willie's best ever duets (and boy aren't there a few to choose from!). It gets better. During the chorus they are joined by the angelic Emmylou Harris.

Rhodes, Kimmie                               West Texas Heavens $30 Hard to believe this gem is out of print. Beautiful production & great duets with Waylon, Willie & Townes Van Zandt

Robertson, Kathy                            Hillbilly Down: To Roy Nichols With

                                                Love $30. Rather eccentric West Coast

                                                            singer who has assembled a superb

                                                            bunch including James Intveld, Rick

                                                Shea, Katy Moffatt & MerleHaggard!!

Schneider, John                               You Ain’t Seen the Last of me $30

                                                            As we say, looks like a pretty boy &

                                                            sings with the best of them. Jimmy

                                                Bowen produced.

Shafer, Whitey                                 So Good So Long $40

                                                Classic songwriter is also a classic

Lefty style vocalist. 15 tracks o n this. Includes his versions of “Does Fort Worth Ever Cross Your Mind” plus “I Never Go Round Mirrors”, the original version of “All My Ex’s Live in Texas”, “That’s the Way Love Goes” and the superb “Heaven Was a Drink of Wine” for starters!!

Shaver, Billy Joe                              “Salt of the Earth” $30 One of his best

                                                            & out of print on cd.

Shearer, Charlie                              Breakin’ Out $28 One of the best ever

                                                            Indie albums featuring the great Curt

                                                            Ryle & Mike Headrick.

Smith, Russell                                  This Little Town $35 Solo album from the

voice of the Amazing Rhythm Aces. Great

                                                      selection.

Spinks, Kelly                                     Thank God for Cowboys $30 OOP Texas fiddler who is an equally fine songwriter.

Springfield, Bobby Lee                   All Fired Up $35 An absolute rip

                                                snorter. Crazed man who apparently

                                                got arrested for climbing over the

                                                            White House fence in order to visit the

                                                            President, presumably Ronny Regan. But

                                                            his honky tonk style which includes the

                                                            original “Hank Drank” is grand. Also

                                                            includes a brilliant version of Eddy

                                                            Arnold’s “What’s He Doing in My World”

                                                with intro by Eddy hisself!!

Thompson, Hank                 Capitol Collectors Series $30 Again the

best sounding and best selection. 20 tracks include his gems “Wild Side of Life” with nice bit of studio talk added in for good measure plus other gems such as “Six Pack to Go”, “Blackboard of My Heart’ etc. 20 in all.

Thornton, Marsha                             Marsha Thornton $40    

Highly desired debut produced by Patsy Cline producer Owen Bradley. Includes the stunning “A Bottle of wine & Patsy Cline”.                 

Thornton, Marsha                            Maybe the Moon Will Shine Tonight $30

Excellent 2nd cd & less Patsy & more Marsha!

Tanya Tucker                                   Fire to Fire Radio Special 1 hr hosted by

Charlie Chase $20

Tanya Tucker                                   The Tanya Tucker Story Radio Special

                                                            1 hr $25 (Ron Huntsman Entertainment)

Whitley, Keith                                  I Wonder Do You Think Of Me $35

                                                            He had the world at his feet with a

                                                voice as good as anyone has ever had

                                                but a blood alcohol reading of .470 saw

him die as this album was completed. Still a landmark cd with honky tonk songs galore which were sadly not just part of the guise. If you fail to be moved by “Tennessee Courage” when you consider his history  then there is something wrong.

Whitley, Keith                                  Tribute Album $28 Also has previously

                                                unissued recordings as well as a great

bunch of artists from Alan Jackson to Mark Chesnutt.

.Wild Rose                                         Straight & Narrow $25

                                                            Listen to Your Heart $28

                                                            Fantastic upbeat all gal group with Pam

                                                Gadd on lead vocals & Wanda Vick on

                                                            guitar & just about everything else.

                                                            Kind of a bluegrass supergroup playing

                                                            hard core country….superbly.

Young, Steve                             Solo/Live. $25 1991 release on the 

                                                   Watermelon label. Very hard to get.

Various artists

.

Beverly Hillbillies s/t           The movie was only just. I mean how

                                                could anyone emulate TV’s funniest

                                                character, Max Baer Jnr’s Jethro Bodine

                                                or even come close for that matter. But

                                                the soundtrack was & still is a ripper

                                                with new artists (1993 vintage) doing

                                                classic country songs. Joe Diffie’s

                                                “White Lightning” and Lorrie Morgan’s

                                                “Crying Time” are just two of the best.

                                                Mind you I thought Erika Eleniak was

                                                terrific as Elly-Mae. $25

Mamas Hungry Eyes                        A Tribute to Merle Haggard $25 OOP

Major label tribute is grand. Clint Black is

more like Merle than Merle on “I Take a Lot of Pride in What I Am” and it may seem like

heresy but I reckon Vince Gill’s “Farmer’s Daughter” is possibly better even than Merle’s.Also has Emmylou, Alan Jackson, Lorrie Morgan, Randy Travis. John Anderson, Willie etc!!

Rig Rock Deluxe                   A Musical Salute to the American Truckdriver

$25. 16 tracks with Buck Owens (“Will There  Be Big Rigs in Heaven”), Junior Brown & Red Simpson together(Mother Trucker) Kay Adams with BR549(Mama

Other Box Sets (includes different styles of music)

 

**Bluegrass: Can’t You Hear Me Calling, 4cd 26 x15 cm hard box 109 tracks $55 as new. Spectacular selection and great book by Billy Altman and complete discography for all the tracks. Has both the superstars and the super rare. Superb presentation.

 

**British Invasion 4cd box 80 tracks $15 not all are original recordings but the artists are great and not the usual ones that seem to find their way into these compilations.

 

**Johnny Cash – At Folsom Prison Sealed box 26 x 15 cm hard cardboard box. Again I will say things released in Australia come with substandard packaging. This came in a standard jewel case. This US edition is brilliantly presented with 2cds + dvd and a large 40 page book. $40

 

**Patsy Cline The Collection $40 The contents are as new but the largely white matte  30 x 16 cm box is a little dirty, still the contents are beyond reproach. 4 cds 102 tracks in stunning sound and a glorious 64 page book. Just wonderful

 

**Cream Those Were the Days as new 4cd 26 x 15 cm box. The rock supergroup of Eric Clapton, Ginger Baker and Jack Bruce. 48 page book 63 tracks. Two cds of studio and 2 of live performances $45

 

**Dick Curless “A Tombstone Every Mile”  $150 7 cds + book. Absolutely as new Bear Family 12 x 12 “ box. The first of two honouring the Baron, the wonderfully deep voiced Curless so associated with (but not exclusively) with that wonderful country standby, the truckin’ song. 181 tracks. A good one.

 

**Elvis 75: Good Rockin’ Tonight $65 New 2009 sealed box which JBHI FI is selling for $109 and others for more. 100 essential tracks to mark the 75 anniversary of Elvis’ birth. 26 x 15 cm hard cardboard box.

 

**Family “Old Songs New Songs” sealed 4 cd set. 26 x 14 cm box with book. Includes bonus 5th cd. English rock group featuring Roger Chapman. $50

 

**Narvel Felts “Limited Club edition Volume 1” 2cds  44 tracks in 25 x 14 cm box, which is probably unnecessary but looks good. $28

 

**From Where I Stand: The Black Experience in Country Music $55 Unusually styled 20 x 13 cm box designed to resemble a book. 60 tracks which dates from early stringbands and early stars such as Deford Bailey through to Charley Pride, Linda Martell, Big Al Downing and the best of all in Stoney Edwards. Sometracks have a certain poetic licence but it is very nice. 60 page book with sections by Claudia Perry, Bill Ivey and Bill Malone among others. As new.

 

**Jimi Hendrix 4cds as new 56 tracks all previously unreleased. Nice velvet style box 29 x 15 cm box. 80 page book. $50 One of rock’s iconic figures, ironically preceding Janis Joplin and Billie Holiday, a sad reflection on their tragic demises.

 

**Billie Holiday “Lady Day the Complete Columbia Recordings” 10 cd

box $160

This is a wonderful set in great shape. It features a leather look cover with matte photo of Billie Holiday. It resembles an old fashioned style album for housing 78s. Dimensions of the box are 31cm x 27cm x 2.25cm. It opens to a pocket on the left with 120 pg book approx. 29 x 25 cm with a) Alphabetical song index b) Essay by Gary Giddins, a columnist with Village Voice  c) Essay by Farah Jasmine riffin, a professor in African-American studies at Columbia University d) Discography e) Track by track commentary by Michael Brooks (which is honest and quite funny to boot..."Oh dear! Billie is very doleful and slow-motion here as if she's stuck in the mud wearing an oversize pair of rainboats".

Next is a fascinating double sided sheet called "To Billie With Love" in which a whole bunch of singers give their thoughts. Etta James gives possibly the most compact tribute "A great woman, very cool, and the hippest thing I ever knew".  Generally not a shabby lot of dedicaters either, though you'd have to say Diana Ross was conspicuous in her absence. I personally think Diana Ross was a poor choice to play Billie Holiday; you may agree or disagree, so there are no quibbles from me.

Finally, there are 10 discs which are all in as new condition except disc 9 which has the very lightest mark not affecting anything. These are in 10 individual inserts

All in all the box is in as new condition with the only exceptions being a)light mark on disc 9 b)slight ring mark on the sleeve holding disc 1 and 6. This is possibly going to be on even a newly opened one with the book being a deep purple cover fronting directly on to these. A very slight mark on page one of the book. This is the fine tooth comb treatment. Overall it is decidedly as new. Brilliant!

**Janis Joplin “Janis” as new 26 x 16cm hard cardboard fold out style box with similarly sized 48 page book. Lots of unissued songs including an alternate “Me & Bobby McGee”. Great box. $40 3cds 49 tks.

 

**Kingston Trio  “The Capitol Years” This Capitol Us box set has 4 cds in a 4 cd jewel case with slip jacket and 48 page book by Bill Bush (I guess that is like George W without the George). Has an interesting table of charting albums and singles. Surprisingly they only had one number 1 single, yes “Tom Dooley”, one of the biggest hits of 1958, but their albums did spectacularly well and over 1959 & 1960 they had a number one album (4 different lps) for 45 weeks!! $50

 

**Let Freedom Sing: The Music of the Civil Rights Movement. Has gouge mark on bar code but otherwise as new. 3cd 58 tracks 26 x 15 cm hard box on Time Life. Notes by Colin Escott which gives a track by track run down; especially interesting on “The Death of Emmett Till” which is sung by the Ramparts (who are in actuality Scatman Crothers, who always seemed to play the amiable black guy and did so in two Jack Nicholson classics “One Flew Over the Cuckoo’s Nest” and “The Shining”). This concerned itself with the injustice behind the lynching of a 14 year old in Mississippi and 2 men were acquitted by an all white jury in 67 minutes, prolonged because of a drink break. Harrowing stuff. In fact, read the notes and you will be constantly shaking your head in disbelief. $50

 

**Gordon Lightfoot “Songbook” 15 x 13 x 6 cm hard cardboard box containing 4 jewel case cds + 60 page fully bound book. 88 tracks by one of Canada’s most popular exports.  Beautifully packaged as new $60

 

**Reba McEntire 50 Greatest Hits sealed 3cds in a spectacular leather like (very leather like) embossed box. $35

 

**National Lampoon “The Classic” 4cds in foldout 14 x 19cm box. Best from the comedy troupe where John Belushi and Chevy Chase got their starts. Some is uproariously funny (their song parodies are brilliant) whilst the standup part is a mixed bag. $30

 

**Willie Nelson: A Classic & Unrealeased Collection as new 3cds $48 Rhino 30cm x 16cm box with 36 page book(by Rich Kienzle)  and discography of all the tracks which date from 1957 and feature an entirely unreleased album of Hank Williams songs. It includes outtakes from his Atlantic years as well as an unissued live concert with “Bloody Merry Morning/Take Me Back to Tulsa” as wild as anything you have ever heard. No doubt Willie had a substantial herbal intake before he took the stage that night.

 

**Buck Owens: “Collection 1959-1990” Rhino 30 cm x 16 cm x 4 cm box. As new $55 62 tracks plus beautiful largely in colour 76 page book.

 

**Dolly Parton “Dolly” $58 sealed 4cd 26 x 15cm hardcover box. 99 tracks plus great book. Includes 7 previously unissued tracks.

 

**Charley Patton “Screaming & Hollering the Blues” $170 The

standard for box sets measurement is generally the Bear Family box set. The theme that comes out in reviews of this is that it is even better than Bear Family. This set has the following features. It weighs in at around 3 kgs.

  1. Green cloth bound outer box which holds (2)
  2. Inner album simulated leather style package designed to resemble an old fashioned 78 album. This in turn holds the rest (3) to (14) hereunder.
  3. Inner pocket holding pocket book size (19.5cm x 12 cm x 112 pg) biography and discussion by John Fahey. This fronts dedication to the late John Fahey 1939-2001.
  4. "Masked Marvel Screams and Hollers: Does Anybody hear? An Introduction to Charley Patton" by Dick Spottswood
  5. "Charley Patton: the Conscience of the Delta" by David Evans
  6. "The Worlds of Charley Patton" by Edward Komara
  7. "Charley Reconsidered Thirty Five Years On" by John Fahey.
  8. Track listing
  9. Song Notes and Transcriptions by Dick Spottswood (fascinating that "Howlin' Wolf" the greatest is referred to throughout as "The" Howlin' Wolf.
  10. Appendix (written and compiled by Edward Komara)
  11. Credits list   #s 4-10 take us though to page 128.
  12. Next are 11 pages of stickers, 6 per page representing original 78rpm labels. I am not sure what you are supposed to do with them!??!?!
  13. 6 pages of record company advertisements (one of these is shown at picture #4 along with the John Fahey book (#3 abbove)
  14. 7 cds which are brilliantly shown to represent 10" records.

**Pentangle: The Time Has Come 1967-1973 as new 65 track collection from the traditional UK folk group whose main members are Bert Jansch and John Renbourn with the flawless voice of Jackie McShee on vocals; the other 2 sing as well of course.  4cds plus 56 page book. $60

 

**Respect: A Century of Women in Music $70 Stunning velvet covered 5 cd box with 80 page book written by the best female writers in the rock and pop world. It encompasses all styles and is beautifully presented. 114 tracks. Holy Emily Pankhurst! Holy Gary Pankhurst! This is just great. 21 x 26 cm velvet covered box.

 

**Roxy Music “The Thrill of It All” 4cds as new $48 26 x 15 cm hardcover style box plus large colour booklet. Featured Brian Ferry. 71 tracks.

 

** Sony Music/ Tree Publishing presents Volume 1 The Country Collection” This 15 x 26 cm hard box is in as new condition and has 6 cds with 120 or so tracks. Has a real cross section. This box was a promotional item put out by Tree Publishing. The book has a kind of pitching it to you feel with descritions of the songs and recommendations to record them $40 Exceptional value

 

**George Strait “Strait Out of the Box” 4cds + book 72 tracks. As new 30 x 16 cm box with book. This dates from 1995 which was almost a pivotal year for George as his recordings got safer and safer and blander and blander in every subsequent year, so much so that I have not attempted to listen to any of his recent stuff. This is the prime period Strait. As you will note I rate his “Beyond the Blue Neon” as one of the greatest country albums which it is and this box serves as a stunning reminder of how good George Strait was. $55

 

**Tanya Tucker “tanya Tucker” 58 tracks over 4 cd in 30 x 15 cm fold out style hard box. 48 page colour book with lots of info, some you may not want to share. $45

 

**Waylon: Nashville Rebel Beautifully presented black embossed box 26 x 15 cm hard cover with spectacular similarly sized 140 page book with an amazing bunch of essays from the likes of Shooter Jennings, lenny Kaye, Jessi Colter and the main section by Rich Kienzle 92 tracks. $65

As new.

 

**Waylon: Only Daddy That’ll walk the Line 2cds $25 30 x 15 cm box with 40 tracks and 20 pg book. The contents are as new and the box has a few marks. A great set if you want the basic best of Waylon.

 

** Hank Williams III – Collector’s Edition $35 His first 3 albums (4cds in total) in a very attractive 15 x 15 x 3 cm tin. Great deal if you don’t have any and a spectacularly necessary one IMO

Books

All are in new or as new condition. HC means hard cover. SB means soft.

 

30 Years on the Road with Gene Autry:My Recollections $35  By Johnny Bond HC Published after Autry’s death by Bond’s daughter as her father didn’t want to portray Autry in a negative light when still alive.

 

All Hopped Up and Ready to Go: Music from the Streets of New York 1927-1977  SC 453 pp Covers all music but has perhaps the biggest on the Greenwich Village folk movement and the folk movement in general as well as the origins of black music in Harlem etc. $15

 

An Epic Life: Willie Nelson Joe Nick Patoski 567 pp HC Stunning biography. Great photos and a bunch of stuff you haven’t  previously read. Gives a great musical as well as personal perspective. $30

 

Behind the Grand Ol Opry Curtain: Tales of Romance and Tragedy $30 Great 416 HC book by Robert Oermann, arguably the best of the Nashville writers. Not quite Nashville Babylon but a hard to put down item. I do have a copy myself.

 

Born Country: Randy Owen with Allen Rucker HC 275 pp $15 the story of Alabama’s  lead vocalist. Nice bits about trying to get that first break.

 

Good Natured Riot: The Birth of the Grand Ol Opry Charles k Wolfe HC 312 pages. The late Charles Wolfe was not only one of the greatest authorities on early country music he was able to write about it in an always interesting manner with great anecdotes. As such he stands alone in this field. Great book. $30

 

Hayloft Gang: Story of the National Barn Dance  edited by Chad Berry SB

215 pp lots of photos. Chicago’s National Barn Dance was the main competition for the Grand Ol Opry under the auspices of John Lair. $15

 

Heartaches by the Number: Country Music’s 500 Greatest Singles SB 295pp large book. David Cantwell & Bill Friskics-Warren.  A great read even if it does not rate the songs as you may expect. Lots of anecdotes and information. And of course it invokes a double “how dare they”! response with why did they put that in or how could they leave that out. Still a great read. $30

 

Historic Photos of the Opry: Ryman Auditorium 1974 Jim McGuire 190 pp HC coffee table style book. Great photos and info. Forward by Garrison Keillor and  Marty Stuart. $25

 

Honky Tonk Heroes & Hillbilly Angels  by Laura Levine HC $10 rather thin book with caricatures of a bunch of artists from Hank Williams to Kitty wells. Personally I would suggest finding your favourite and getting a couple of frames. Would be a nice item for your shelves.

 

Guitar Towns: Journey to the Crossroads of Rock & Roll HC $18 Covers a bunch of musical centres outside the usual New York, Nashville, Chicago and La. Includes New Orleans, Jackson (Mississippi), Bakersfield, Muscle Shoals, Cincinatti etc. Again covers a variety of styles with of course country being to the fore

 

He Is I Say: Neil Diamond  HC 203 pp $15 David Wild.

 

Little Miss Dynamite: The Life and Times of Brenda Lee HC Robert Oermann 302 pp Brenda’s book is written first person style with ghosting by Oermann, one of Nashville’s best scribes and Julie Clay. Lots of anecdotes about the people she met who ultimately influenced her singing and performing styles. $18

 

Man of Constant Sorrow: My Life and Times Dr Ralph Stanley with Eddie Dean 452pp released end 2009. A great book from the perspective of the greatest living bluegrass artist. $35

 

Jimmie Rodgers: The Life and Times of America’s Blue Yodeller SB 460 pp

Great definitive bio on the first great country music artist. One of the best country music books ever written. Superb text and anecdotes and some wonderful photographs. $25

 

King of the Cowboys and Queen of the West: Roy Rogers & Dale Evans Raymond E White HB 530pp This is a real encyclopaedia about Roy & Dale and deals with their recording careers, movie careers and televison careers with a discography, filmography and I guess you’d have to say teeveeography. Large size hardcover book would be a must for all fans. Great detail and no stone is left unturned $35

 

Music of Bill Monroe : Neil Rosenberg & Charles K Wolfe HC A complete discography 350 pages. This is a large book. The sessions are written about in depth and then discography details are aso given in depth. Of that “Bill Monroe & Friends” album I have often referred to with the lengthy spoken introductions they say “Some between Monroe and John Hartford and Monroe and Ricky Skaggs sound genuine and sincere whilst others are full of obsequious Nashville gush.” Hell, that’s why I love it!!

Great book, $30

 

Nashville Portraits Jim McGuire HC Great coffee table book with portraits and tributes by a bunch of  people they have influenced. You look at a 20 year old Steve Earle and wonder where he went wrong. Some of McGuire’s photographs graced the covers of albums. They are all pretty good. Nice bluegrass perspective on a lot of the photos. $25 142 pp                                                                                                  

Old Roots & New Routes Pamela Fox & Barbara Ching SB $15 Any book that has a chapter on Neko Case (a footnote is too much) comes across as a wank and a half, as the Queen Mother once said. Generally the so called alt country is as bad as the Nashville variety and is guided by the old Emperor’s New Clothes syndrome in that no one is game to say it is crap for fear of being labelled as uncool. The Cosmic Cowboy & myself make no such reservation, but if you want to get a perspective on the rationale of the alt country movement then this is for you. 281pp

 

Public Cowboy Number 1: The Life and Times of Gene Autry SB 406pp

Holly George-warren’s book gives a warts and all account of Gene Autry. Nice anecdotes and yes he did ride side saddle with Gail “Annie Oakley’ Davis. Also has a discography of Autry’s recording sessions. $25

 

River of No Return: Tennessee Ernie Ford and the Woman he Loved  255pp HC by Jeffrey Buckner Ford (Ern’s eldest son) This is a real warts & all book about the seemingly always jovial Ern which indicates he wasn’t and carried many demons including being a chronic alcoholic. But it also delves into the part he played in recording history and I bet you didn’t know that one of the 50s biggest songs in any style of music was sent out as a b-side (“Sixteen Tons” of course). $30

 

Rough Mix: The Jimmy Bowen story  HC $18 Great book about Bowen formerly as a performer and then as a producer and head of Liberty when Garth Brooks was on the label. Makes great reading and you should pump your fists ever times Bowen disses Brooks. Wundabar!!

 

Shot in the Dark:Making Records in Nashville 1945-1955 Martin Hawkins HC. Stunning coffee table style book with lots of text and great pictures. The title is pretty self explanatory and whilst the emphasis is of course on country music a lot of other styles are covered. US publisher’s price is US$65. This is  must at $35. Absolutely wonderful.

 

Statler Brothers Random Memories by Don & Harold Reid $30 HC 288 pgs

 

Tammy Wynette “Tragic Country Music Queen” $35 Brand new 448 HC biography.

 

Those Grand Ole Opry Country Music Stars David Liverett 245pp PB Liverett gives a page by page ru down on the artist’s career as well as illustrating each entry. Not essential by any means but interesting as he features a lot of artists you never see written about except in passing eg Gordon Terry, the man who I would nominate #1 in the list of “How could he have not been a huge star”. $12

 

Waiting for a Train: Jimmie Rodgers’s America edited by Mary Davis and Warren Zanes SB A great collection of essays about the man and his times. Writers include Bob Dylan, biographer Nolan Porterfield, the always interesting Nick Tosches, Bill Malone, Charles Wolfe and many more. 299pp $25

 

Who Says You Can’t Cook It All  Alan Jackson Yes, a Jackson family cookbook. About 100 pg SB If a Jackson fan you may just want it. $8

 

 

So that’s all for this time folks. Hope you can fine something to your liking.

 

Regards
