A) Mark Chesnutt “Outlaw” $30
B) Shane Worley “Honky Tonk History” $30
Two similarly themed albums, mostly covers of outlaw period classics but both with originality to make them worthwhile.
Worley has previously done a Haggard tribute albums and continues with a great cover of “Is This the Beginning of the end”, a Wynn Stewart song that appeared on an early Haggard album. He also does a finetake on “Heart Don’t Stop Stoppin’ on Me Now”, from Vern Gosdin & Max D Barnes. Producer Mike Headrick is of course a hero in our annuls and he shines on guitar throughout. Shane even does an Alan Jackson song, and does an extremely fine job on “House With No Curtains”. Worley is also a fine writer as evidenced by “Every Waylon Needs a Jessi”, about the guy who sees it as a time to settle down. “Mooney Had His Back” is a song by Mike Headrick about Waylon and his great steel guitar player, Ralph Mooney. Great. Worley is a superior vocalist who has the ability to turn any song into his own. One of the most popular independent artists we have ever sold.
Chesnutt hit the ground running with his “Too Cold at Home”. Instantly he proved himself to be one of the greatest vocalists in country music history. He became somewhat unfashionable though, but only to the turkeys that are supposedly running the major labels in Nashville. He now treads the independent route as well. Firstly this is produced by Dwight’s early mentor, Pete Anderson. There is a real surprise as Mark does a duet with the fabulous Amber Digby on a rather obscure Dr Hook song (co-written by Denis Loccoriere and Shel Silverstein). Its is “A Couple More Years” and even though a big Dr Hook fand I never really liked this much, BUT Ches and Amber give it a life it never had. Amber is the perfect foil for Chesnutt. Chesnutt’s vocal is an absolute delight. It is not the same song. It is magically transformed by two of the best vocalists you’d ever hear. If you hear this and don’t get goosebumps call the coroner. Chesnutt shines on two Kristofferson songs, the oft covered “Sunday Mornin’ Comin’ Down”, again a song that seemingly can be adapted to the singers’ style as evidenced by the likes of Ray Stevens and Johnny Cash having hits with it, and the equally grand “Lovin’ Her Was Easier (Than Anything I’ll ever Do Again)”. The first is taken at a slow pace with a wonderful sparse acoustic backing. The latter is the consummate love song, perhaps a bit too wordy to have been a single but too good to have not been. Waylon is however his hero and “Freedom to Stay” is a big vocal that the great man would have approved of.
So there they are folks. Two great singers. Two great albums. Some familiar songs but that is what style is, taking something and turning it into your own. A tie!!
Johnny Rodriguez “Some of Mine Some of Theirs” $30 Johnny sounded great on that duet album with Johnny Bush, that came out a year or so ago. BUT, I am still trying to figure out his non appearance on the last few tracks. I need not wonder of anything sinister as this album is a beauty. Johnny also steers clear of re-doing any of his hits. This is all new material which includes a great swing number in “Where’s My Baby Now”. “On the Other Side” was written by Linda Hargrove, seemingly for Johnny as the lyrics relate to his darker side. “Vestida De Blanco” is the album’s Spanish song and it is a beauty. It is followed by the only song Johnny actually wrote “Hello Love, goodbye”, which I guess makes the album’s title a bit confusing but this is a nice ballad that you could imagine being tailor made for Merle Haggard. “Broken Heartsville” is a song of a guy drowning his sorrows. Some nice covers, especially his version of “The Lord Knows I’m Drinking” and a slow version of Joe South’s “Don’t It Make You Want to Go Home” which Rodriguez turns into a country classic, it is like hearing the song for the first time. Great Marty Robbins’ inspired take on “Sonora’s Death Row”. Great album. Recorded in Abilene Texas with assumably a bunch of local musicians who are great.
Justin Trevino & Amber Digby “Keeping Up Appearances” $30 The two favourites of Yesterday & Today Records together for the first time on a duets album. They have never sounded so good. What a line up of musicians…Bobby Flores/Jake Hooker/Dickey Overbey/ T Jarrod Bonta. They work superbly together and to have seen them perform together in Australia was an honour and a privilege. Justin drops his voice a little and Amber soars. It is as perfect as you’d expect. I feel sorry for those who think the Nashville scene is good. Amber is worth a thousand Taylor Swifts and Justin two thousand Toby Keiths. This album is as good as any Porter & Dolly, as good as any George & Tammy. Just do yourself a favour. You won’t regret it.
Hank Williams III The Rebel Within $30 Hank 3 as he is known is the consummate bad boy. When he sings “Getting Drunk & falling Down” you know he is not singing about something he read. Great opening number as he tells about his lifestyle and his friend “Misery”. The title song really moves with breakneck banjo, slap bass and steel. “Drinkin’ Ain’t Hard to Do” has a classic feel..you get the feeling he has done personal research on his songs. “Karmageddon” is a weird little number. “Lost in Oklahoma” is probably the most traditional sounding number, until you listen to the lyrics that are definitely Hank 3. Seems this completed his contract with Curb records. Where he will turn up next is anyone’s guess!
Hank Thompson – “Hank the Hired Hand” $35 2cds This is a mix of hits and radio transcriptions and on the second cd features an interview Hank did on a French radio show in 2001. Very eloquent and featuring more transcriptions plus snippets from artists who influenced him over the years. Some of the radio transcriptions are great especially “River Road Two Step”. This is on the El Toro label.
Also on he label (we have on order) is the only cd by Wayne Walker, a successful songwriter.
Plus Rockin’ Bonnie & the Rot Gut Guys “ Cocktail Jubilee”, a sensational female rockabilly singer. Fabulous.
Brennen Leigh –“The Box” $30 This is the 3rd album by Brennen and this comes on like a classic Emmylou style album. She has a great voice and it is a country album, in which most of the songs are written by the singer. They have a classic feel about them. She harmonises well with Jim Lauderdale on the title track, about a box of treasures she kept to remind her of an old love…it has a refrain that appears throughout the song “I can’t bring myself to throw the box away’. Instantly great. “Something Borrowed” has a driving bluegrass feel. Nice dobro from Texas steel man & producer, Tommy Detamore. “What’ll I Do” is one of only two songs not written by Brennen. Co-writetn by Waylon soundalike Wendel Adkins it is far removed from an outlaw song which you might expect prior to hearing. “Distracted’ is a great country weeper, with some great steel guitar from the aforementioned Tommy Detamore. “Travelling On” is a co-write with Sunny Sweeney. Her songs are all good. Her singing is great and fine guest musicians such as Bobby Flores, Ronnie Huckaby on piano and of course Tommy Detamore. Re-read the opening line and take it on board. This album is great.
Gary P Nunn – Taking Texas to the Country $30 Gary P and the Texas Bunkhouse band feature a mix of original songs but also include 4 songs by Levi Mullen and one Levi/Gary P cowrite.
Tony Booth The Other Side of Life $30 Tony Booth is superb. This is straight out of the Ray Price shuffle school. He originally was on Capitol Records and I would highly recommend his 2 on 1 Capitol cd listed below. I’d also recommend his cd with Darrell McCall and Curtis Potter. “All That She Could Take” is a great new song co-written by producer, the brilliant Justin Trevino and Darrell McCall’s daughter Guyanne. Consummately produced by Justin as well as featuring harmonies by Justin and Amber Digby. “Perfect Place” is a great country weeper…”if a lonely room kills memories I’ve found the perfect place”. “It’s All Your Fault” is another great shuffle. For a change of pace “Sometimes I Talk in My Sleep” is a great waltz tempo number from the pen of Eddy Raven. As a real surprise we get a fantastic Tex Mex treatment of “Blue Spanish Eyes”. Forget Al Martino! This is brilliant. Wonderful artist. Wonderful album.
Waylon Jennings The Dark Side of Fame $28 This is a very interesting compilation in that it ignores Waylon’s outlaw period. Most of the compilations, in fact all apart from this feature Waylon’s rocking outlaw, heavy on the bass style. This features his softer more country side and as such is a great summation of the early and wonderful Bear Family boxes. This features songs from classic albums such as “Sings Ol Harlan”/ “Folk Country”/ “Singer of Sad Songs”/” Jewels”/Taker-Tulsa”/ “Cedartown Georgia”. Great stuff all the way. Very generous 28 tracks.
Frankie Laine – Rocks & Gravel $28 Great collection of the big voiced Francesco LoVecchio’s (but known as Frankie Laine to you & I) best western flavoured songs. A generous 28 songs from such albums as “Hell Bent for Leather”, “Deuces wild”, “Balladeer”, “Call of the Wild”. It includes such gems as “Riders in the sky”, “Gunfight at the OK Corral”, “Bowie Knife”, “3:10 to Yuma” etc.
DVD George Strait “Live!” $35 I have not been very kind to George Strait over the last 10 years. He has simply been too safe and unexciting; up until his latest album, “Twang” which is a wonderful throw back to his halcyon days. Margaret, Australia’s #1 George Strait fan told me how good it was and by gum she was correct. I still believe George was in a class of his own around the time of “Beyond The Blue Neon’ and lo & behold this dvd from New Year’s night 1986 leading into 1987 is as good as it gets. The Ace in the Hole Band whip it up a treat and this has 16 songs from that concert. He even does a cover of the great Hank Thompson’s “Six Pack to Go”. In addition there are 5 bonus music videos. 21 tracks in all. THIS IS ONLY SOLD IN WAL MART STORES. Not sold outside USA. The dvd is all regions. Let’s hope “Twang” is a return to his great period.
DVD Statler Brothers: The Gospel Music Of Volume One $35 DVD Statler Brothers: The Gospel Music Of Volume Two $35 Two dvds each wit habout 90 minutes on the Gaither label, Apart from 19 songs on each there are lots of anecdotes.
DVD Gary P Nunn “Live from Blancos” $35 Gary P and the Bunkhouse Boys. One of the mainstays of the Texas music scene this features all his classics, and more. “Kara lee” is about his ex wife, Karen Brooks, who recorded for Warner Brother….aaah young love and ambition!!
Its about to get western
Porter Wagoner “What Ain’t to Be, Just Might Happen/ Porter Wagoner Sings His Own” 2 on 1 $28 If there has been an artist who has come up with a better bunch of album covers than the great Porter I haven’t seen him. Who else but Porter could pull off a lime green suit (striped of course) matched with a psychedelic floral shirt, set off by a black tie with a large egg shape opal-like clip. Of course his wonderful yellow locks are the piece de resistance!! The albums are both super and date from 1972 & 71 respectively when Porter was at his absolute peak. The first was the original album for “Rubber Room”, maybe the quirkiest (& best also) country songs ever. 10 of the 12 songs on the album were written by Porter and the other 2 by Dolly Parton. There are also 6 bonus tracks including the rare duet with Merle Haggard, “I Haven’t Learned a Thing”, originally on the “Porter” album. Everything about these albums is superb, including the tremendous musicians who are featured; Hargus Robbins, Jerry Reed, Pete Drake, Grady Martin etc.
WITH THE PREVIOUS AND FOLLOWING ALBUM PLEASE REORDER EVEN IF YOU PLACED A PROVISIONAL ORDER WHEN THEIR RELEASE WAS FIRST WRITTEN ABOUT A COUPLE OF NEWSLETTERS AGO.
Dolly Parton – “The Fairest of Them All/ My Favourite Songwriter, Porter Wagoner” 2 on 1 $28 “Daddy Come & get me’, the opening track from the first album “Daddy Come & Get me” is a woman’s plea to come and get her out of the asylum in which she was placed by her unfaithful husband. Now, you want to know why Dolly hit it off so well with Porter!! “Down from Dover” is the original version (later re-recorded on her “Little Sparrow” album) of the tragic tale of a teenage unwed mother. Surprisingly her album of Porter’s songs was the hardest of hers to find on record. Most of the others showed up but hardly ever, bordering on never did you see that one and when you did a hefty penny was demanded for it. Surprising is that a lot of songs have a deeply religious flavour and Dolly was probably the ideal vehicle for Porter to get them across. The 2 albums are featured in full with 2 bonus tracks.
Dale Watson “Carryin’ On” $28 Heroes come and
heroes go but none keep going on like the great Dale Watson. This is one its
way and will be here when you get this. All new recordings recorded in
Nashville, and featuring the great Hargus Robbins on piano and the Grand Ol
opry’s own Carole Lee Singers (Carole Lee Cooper is daughter of the great Wilma
Lee & Stoney Cooper). Track listing is as follows:
1. Carryin' on This Way
Bill Anderson “Songwriter” $30 What a great album! Bill has been pumping out albums on his own label and this may be the best. “It Ain’t My Job To Tote Your Monkey” (a play on the expression…’having a monkey on your back’) is a surprisingly upbeat opening and has some fabulous humour in it. “Good Time Getting There” is a collaboration with the man who is the last vestige of hope for Nashville mainstream in Jamie Johnson, and will make you smile. Bill also collaborates again with Jon Randall on the sad & touching. “If Anything Ever Happened to You”. Nostalgic but not hackneyed. By contrast “If You can’t Make Money” is a jaunty ditty. “Papaw’s Sunday Boots” is a song only Bill Anderson could have written. “The Songwriters” is a salute to that breed of which Bill is one. “We’re heroes, we’re schemers, we’re drunks, we’re dreamers…. half of the world thinks we’re crazy, the other half wants to be us”. Great great great!! “That’s When the Fight Broke Out” is laugh out funny as Bill relates the story of a couple in terms of the dialogue used on “Who Wants to be a Millionaire”. Kind of half spoken…it is like one of Jerry Reed’s best. “Some Kind of War” is a hard look at the uncertainties of life. In the brief notes Bill says “This is a collection of 12 new songs that I’ve written with some great co-writers and friends. I Hope you will enjoy them”. Well Bill, I did more than enjoy them. I thought they were just fabulous!
Merle Haggard “Amber Waves of Grain/ Kern River” $30 Sometimes you’d wish record companies would get together and work out what they are gonna reissue as the second album came out on a cd earlier in the year. BUT the good news is that Hag’s hardest album to get on cd, the great “Amber Waves of Grain” is available again to all and sundry. This was a live album but unlike many live albums had new songs on it and the title track stands as the best ever song about the plight of the farmer, with a universal lyric that says it all. Just as good is the song “Gone With the Wind”, which has some wonderfully word play incorporated from the immortal movie. There is a great medley of the original “Okie from Muskogee’ and its answer song “The Okie From Muskogee’s Coming Home”. It is a bonus if you don’t have the “Kern River” reissue, but even if you do don’t worry. “Amber Waves of Grain” stands up very well on its own.
Silver Meteor: A Progressive Country Anthology $30 Sierra Records This was the best ever country rock compilation and it just got better with an astonishing 14 tracks added to the original 12. I had this on lp and it was just about impossible to find after it came out. It didn’t matter that it was horribly warped (no not like my mind) it was grand. It had 4 tracks from what would have been the solo debut of Byrds’ singer/guitarist Clarence White. They included a great version of the Delaney & Bonnie hit “Never Ending song of Love” as well as a hot instrumental take of “Alabama Jubilee”. On “Why You been Gone So Long”, Ry Cooder guests alongside Clarence. Sadly that is where the story ends as Clarence was tragically killed when a drunk driver ran into the station wagon into which he was loading his gear. It also put an end to an Everly Brothers album which was also going to feature Clarence White along with fellow Byrd Gene Parsons. Two tracks from these sessions are included, “I’m On My Way Back Home” and “The Cuckoo”, both classics. It featured 2 songs from Casey Kelly’s Elektra record, including the title song (railroad buffs will know the “Silver Meteor” is a train). Barbara Keith, also responsible for a rare 70s album, performs the original of the oft-covered “Bramble & the Rose”. The Blue Velvet Band consists of bluegrass veterans Bill keith & Eric Weissberg, Richard Greene and others. Bonus tracks include Paul Seibel’s “Pinto Pony” (w. Clarence White) and Rusty Young (of Poco fame & also with Clarence) on “Everybody’s Talkin’ “. Writer Larry Murray performs his song about a dog, “Bugler”, which featured Clarence on vocal when it was performed by the Byrds. Two Gram Parsons’ tracks are performed by Country t Blue”. Recently UK magazine “Uncut” voted this as one of the all time great “lost” albums. That has now all changed with this cd. 26 country rock classics. Do yourself a favour.
John Prine “In Person & On Stage” $28 It seems like only yesterday that the Cosmic Cowboy and I stood side to side some 2 metres from the stage at the now defunct Birkenhead Tavern to see John Prine. Prine is a performer. Warm and personable on stage, and a little shy and reserved off. He has had a couple of live albums but this is the best. I wonder if the Cosmic Cowboy remembers the dweeb who was standing next to us, who had seemingly studied everything annoying on the first live album and chosen to act out the audience part at that performance. Well, the good thing about this is the audience is well back in the mix. “In Spite of Ourselves” has a wonderful introduction about how he wrote that song for a movie in which he appeared as Billy Bob Thornton’s brother, with Andy Griffith as their dad. “I guess that made me Opie’s step brother!”, jests the great man. Iris Dement guests on this and the wonderful “Unwed Fathers”. Prine has a mesmerising ability in providing anecdotes and enhances the songs on which these are featured. He talks about his family on “The Bottomless Lake” and his family vacations, something I never really realised was the subject of the song. Sara Watkins of Nickel Creek adds a delightful duet vocal some nice fiddle touches to “The Late John Garfield Blues”, which Prine takes at a slightly slower pace than the recorded version. There is no point in doing a live album which is indistinguishable to the original version and Prine delivers! “Bear Creek Blues” is a Carter Family song, which Prine did on the Carter Tribute album, the Carter Family being an early influence. On “Angel from Montgomery” another guets drops by, that being Emmylou Harris. Again, taken at a gentler pace with some nice mandolin touches, this will give goose bumps, even if Emmy is a tad out on the harmonies. “Your Flag Decal won’t Get You Into Heaven Anymore” was the first song on John’s first album and he tells how he wrote it when he was a mail man delivering Reader’s Digests…fabulous. It was Readers Digest who gave out the stick on flags about which this song was written. “Mexican Home” is a lovely duet with Josh Ritter. “Paradise”, all about the Kentucky coal miners shares a relationship with both the Everly Brothers and Merle Travis. This features Kevin Welch and Keiran Kane, who also plays some great mandolin licks. Prine is so darn entrancing I wish he would write a book. There are few better than he!!
“Twistable Turnable Man _ A Musical Tribute to the Songs of Shel Silverstein”. $30 Wow, I rarely go to shows, preferring the recorded version, but having just mentioned the great John Prine it is appropriate I mention Doctor Hook, or Dr Hook & the Medicine Show as they were known. They toured Australia in the mid 70s and they were so good the first night I had to go back the second. BUT there were a couple of reservations. This was when they had changed from Columbia to Capitol labels and had began to record NON-Silverstein songs. The shining light was the Shel songs and I still think they were the best interpreters of Shel’s songs. This tribute, with one exception, is just sensational. Firstly, the faves: John Prine does a great version of “This Guitar Is For Sale”, a song I believe I had only ever heard by Shel’s co-writer, Fred Koller. To this day I think Shel chose Fred as a collaborator as he was the only person who had a worse voice than he (but I have several Shel albums which I do love). Kris Kristofferson’s gnarly voice is perfect for the fabulous “The Winner” (with Bobby Bare doing harmony). Best track though, and one of the greatest you would ever hear is “Me & Jimmy(sic) Rodgers” sung by the great octogenarian, Ray Price, who has a voice so perfectly in tune and as smooth as it gets, that it makes you wonder how it was possible. This nostalgic song not only talks about Jimmy (don’t know if he actually meant Jimmie Rodgers, or just someone else) but also talks about Audie Murphy, Betty Grable and so on. Wonderful…and then some. There is a great touch on “Daddy What If” with Bobby Bare Jnr doing the lead vocal and his daughter Isabella doing the child question part. Of course Bobby Jnr had taken that role when his father, Bobby Bare (snr) had recorded the song. Bobby Snr is great on “The Living Legend”. Dr Dog do a Beach Boys inspired “The Unicorn”, a worldwide hit for the Canadian Irishmen, The Irish Rovers. My Morning Jacket (yes that is a group) do several songs and all are fine, including the final “26 Second Song” (anyone care to guess how long that one goes for??). Sarah Jarosz, who is another new name to me does a fine “Queen of the Silver Dollar” and Black Francis, again a new name, does a fine take of “Cover of the Rolling Stone’. Some may not like Billy Bob Thornton and the Boxmasters’ take on “Sylvia’s Mother” but I love it! Taken at a jaunty pace it is something I think would have appealed to Shel. Nanci Griffith is fine on “The Giving Tree”. NOW, the only bad song on the whole album is a song I rate as one of Shel’s best and that is “The Ballad of Lucy Jordan”, tortured to within an inch of death by Lucinda Williams. Painful, pitiful, self-indulgent are all terms that come to mind, but “just plain awful” covers it best. When it became cool to refer to her as just “Lucinda” I knew it was time to tune out but this is horrid. Still 14 songs out of 15 get the thumbs up. If this was a record you could at least score that track out so it could never be played, which is something that it deserves.
Cornell Hurd “A Bad Year for Love” $30 Everybody loves Cornell Hurd and his band who are generally considered the best Austin has to offer. As always great value with 17 tracks, but a little different this time with 6 instrumentals recorded as a tribute to his great guitarist Paul Skelton who passed away after a battle with cancer and makes his last appearance on this album. Apart from Roger Miller’s “Invitation to the Blues” (a big hit for Ray Price) and a track Cornell informs us was played by Max Kernaghan’s Four Dimensions in the 60s all songs are Cornell Hurd originals and each carry his trademark wit & wisdom. “Respect from the Dead” is Cornell’s message to a former lover…that is how Cornell feels, the fool she left broken hearted. T Jarrod Bonta is superb on piano, as he expertly punctuates Cornell’s angst filled vocals. Woops, missed another non Cornell song, “I’ve Got Wine On My Mind”, which was performed by great Johnny Paycheck. Scott Walls is great on steel guitar on another tale of regret, “I Won’t Apologise for Loving You”. Hell, I should say heck, after all this is a “g” rating publication, I love Cornell.

OTHER BEAR FAMILY RECENT RELEASES IN STOCK
As far as the first one goes please read the comment as this is repeated in its entirety from the last newsletter. Will use different font this time.
**A Girl Named Johnny Cash an Other Tribute Songs $32 This is a classic case of one that may have been missed but when you find out about it, it will be a must have. Basically it is a series of tribute songs sung by well known artists to other artists. It takes its title from Jane Morgan’s “A Boy Named Sue” answer song…”A Girl Named Johnny Cash”, which considering she wasn’t a country singer was just great. What makes it a must have though are 10 songs by Stoney Edwards, one of the greatest country vocalists ever and 9 of these are seeing their first release on this cd. He of course was responsible for the wondrous “Hank & Left Raised My Country Soul” but the other 9 are just as good. They were recorded at a 1973 session and included the likes of Grady Martin, Weldon Myrick, Tommy Jackson, Lloyd Green, Charlie McCoy, Hargus “Pig” Robbins etc. In addition there are guests, eg on “The Night Ernest Tubb show Came to Town” ET’s guitarist Billy Byrd is a guest; on “The Carter Family” Mother Maybelle plays autoharp; on “Roy Acuff King of Country Music” we get guest appearances from both Jimmie Riddle and Howdy Forrester; “Bob Wills, The Fiddlin’ Man” features both Tommy Jackson & Leon McAuliffe. As wonderful as these are, there are no duds among the 18 tracks. Hag’s Tommy Collins tribute, “Leonard” is indeed one of Merle’s best ever, and Rudy Thacker’s little known “Ballad of Johnny Horton” is indeed a joy.
** The Big Bopper – Hellooo Baby!! $32 Great 31 tracker. His hit “Chantilly Lace” was one of the most memorable of the 50s and this great cd has all his recordings including the original “White Lightning”, which he wrote as well as great humour filled songs such as “Big Bopper’s Wedding” and “It’s the Truth Ruth”. Also has every tribute song, including “Bopper 486009” by Donna Dameron on which he guests.
**Next Stop is Vietnam 13 cds + 300 page hard cover book, $390 At a tad under 4kgs this is a weighty volume. Over 300 tracks from every format with the title taken from a song by the least personable guy I’ve ever met. Great set! If you want a track listing let me know. 2 in stock.
**Bobby Charles “See You Later Alligator” 28 tracks $32
**Hedy West & Bill Clifton – Getting Folk Out of the Country $32
**Eddie Cochran – Rocks $35 35 tracks none better than “Twenty Flight Rock” & “Sumemrtime Blues”. How good!!

**Pat Boone Drugstores Rockin’ $32 35 tracks.
These are some of the best albums over the years and they are all out of print. Some of these go for 2 to 3 times what I have them listed as. All are in new/as new condition. Don’t miss out, as most 1 copy only. These take great skill in acquiring, believe me. They are sourced from a number of places, all overseas.
LATE ADDITIONS TO RARITIES
Ball, David David Ball $28 This was going to
precede “Thinkin’ Problem” and in their
wisdom RCA didn’t release it. A pity as it
is very good with originals & covers. A
must for David Ball fans, and isn’t that
just about everyone??
Dunn, Holly Across the Rio Grande $40
Dunn, Holly Holly Dunn $38
Dunn, Holly Cornerstone $35
Holly Dunn’s first 3 albums on the MTM
label were definitely her best with the
self titled one containing her biggest hit
in “Daddy’s Hands”, the second
“Cornerstone’ maybe her best with 2
stunning tracks in “Strangers again” &
a delightful version of Jim Croce’s
“Lovers’ Cross’ whilst the final MTM
album had her delightful version of the
title song, also done by Reba, but Holly
wins!! All 3 albums are delightful.
Pennington,R/Buddy Emmons Swinging by Request $40
Pennington,R/Buddy Emmons Goin’ Out Swingin’ $35
Pennington,R/Buddy Emmons It’s All in the Swing $35
Ray Pennington was honcho of Step One
Records, a Nashville independent label
which had a wonderful roster. He was
also a fine Ray price inspired vocalist &
as many steel players would say Buddy
Emmons is the best ever. The Step One
House band, so to speak, was none too
shabby with Rob Hajacos on fiddle,
Bobby All on acoustic guitar and Bunky
Keels on piano. The first has 21 tracks &
Clinton Gregory is an excellent vocalist
on 2 tracks. They are a mix of vocal &
instrumentals, with “Little Brown Jug”
featuring some extraordinary steel from
Mr Emmons. The second has some great
guest vocals by Curtis Potter and the
3rd gives great country swing versions of
what were originally big band recordings.
All are super.
Smith, Sammi Best $30 Now out of print. Great
selection of all original tracks.
Thompson, Jeff Jeff Thompson $40 No, not Thommo, but
a fine singer who was going to have the
first album release on the Arista country
label but the album never came out. Has
a style reminiscent of Ricky Van Shelton
with a great deep voice. Does a superb
version of “The Greatest Man I Never
Knew”, a hit for Reba, but Jeff wins
hands down!! Equally grand is the
wonderful “It’s a Good Thing I Don’t Love
You Anymore”, with a superb lyric and
the upbeat “Today is Elvis’ Birthday”.
Bandy, Moe Act Naturally $30
Bandy, Moe Many Mansions $35
Bandy, Moe No Regrets $35 (last 2 are very rare

Four albums on the long defunct Hawk
Records label from Northern Ireland.
Benny is an Oklahoma boy and these are
possibly the most popular independent
label albums we have ever had!
Why wouldn’t they be? ! They are almost
like 4 long lost Merle Haggard albums. They are that good. “Mama’s Rockin’
Chair” is missing back graphic. All 10/10
Bogguss, Suzy/Chet Atkins Simpatico XXXXON SALEXXXXX $20
One of Chet’s last albums and one of
Suzy’s best, if not the best. A must have.

be the best value in the entire newsletter
Britton, Marsha Good Times & Hard Times $35 Great
Album on Hawk label (see Benny Berry)
“We’ve Had Some Good Times” is a duet

is the best album by a female we have

Davis, Joey “Love Songs, Waltz’s True Stories & Lies”
The spelling may be a bit out but 17
superb honky tonk tracks are as good as it can go. Everybody loves this. $40
Delray, Martin Get Rhythm $45 This is absolutely one of
the best albums we have ever had and
whilst the title track featured Johnny
Cash joining Martin in a sensational duet,
I have no reservations in saying Martin’s
version of the Wood Newton song
“Lillie’s White Lies” is the best album
track on any album we have ever had.
The fact the rest of the album is nothing
less than great makes this a must have.
Trivia: Martin’s real name is Mike Martin
and he is a professional tennis coat. We
still await his third album.

Jones, George Too Wild Too Long $140 If you were a

Nelson, Willie A Horse Called Music $35
Nelson, Willie Promiseland $35
Nelson, Willie Peace in the Valley: The Gospel Truth
Collection with Willie Nelson Jnr. They used a little poetic licence with the artists as Willie Nelson Jnr was known as Billy Nelson al lhis life, up until it tragically ended on Christmas day 1991. So this album had special meaning for Willie as it seems this was the only time Willie Jnr/Billy had recorded. The results are stunning. Billy/Willie Jnr generally trades parts of the songs with Wilie and has a distinctive voice that is iinstantly memorable. He does the sole vocal on "My Body's Just a Suitcase for Your Soul" and it indeed may be the best track on an album where nothing is less than grand. Willie solos on "Troublemaker" and it is a different and far better version than on his album of the same name. being a big Willie fan I must rate this as his best gospel album an indeed one of the best in general. $55
Newbury, Mickey Lulled by the Moonlight $30
Newton, Wayne Coming Home $28 No I haven’t gone nuts

Paycheck, Johnny The Real Mr Heartache: The Little Darlin’
Years $55 Country Music Foundation with
Paycheck at his best. I love George Jones
but his Epic label gems owe more than a
passing nod to this. 24 tracks. Many have

his recordings on the Little Darlin’ label
actually inspired George Jones!

Price, Ray Heart of Country Music $48 Step One

with a very sympathetic producer in Ray
Pennington and a crack team of musos
On this Ray does 20 country classics with
largely acoustic backing. Interesting that
on my Nashville trip last year I met Ray
Waddell who is doing a biography on Ray
Price and I told him how much I liked
this and he told me it was also Ray’s
favourite of all the albums he had done.
Nothing is better than Ray’s version of
“Is Anybody Going to San Antone”.

Sanford, Arnold That’s Why I Sing This Way $50 Many
rate this the best indie ever and they are
certainly on the right track. The first 10
songs are from the great Max D Barnes, including the title cut which was also

good as it was it was no match for
Arnold’s original version. 12 tks in all.
Schneider, John You Ain’t Seen the Last of Me $25

& no correspondence will be entered into on that fact, this is his best album, a
Warners album from 1989 with the best
version ever of “Dreams of a Dreamer”,
which was also done by Darrell McCall so
there is plenty competition plus Gene’s
best ever ballad “The Great Divide”
Watson, Gene Unchartered Mind $30 Step One with a
superb selection highlighted by his
stunning version of the great Curt Ryle
song “Mirrors Don’t Lie”. Brilliant.
Whitley, Keith I Wonder Do You Think of Me XXSALEXX

tragically with his alcohol overdose.

5) Exceptional Sound quality
1. Roy Acuff – King of Country Music 100 tracks and 40 page book. His original group was one of the best and that is what is here with great musicians such as Clell Sumney (Cousin Jody) who was in turn replaced with the great Beecher “Pete” Kirby aka Bashful Brother Oswald. Both are featured here. Dates from his original 1936 recordings of “Great Speckle Bird” & “Wabash Cannonball” through his Vocalion, Okeh & then Columbia recordings. Excellent discography.
2. Blazing Bluegrass 103 tracks, 52 page book. One cd each from Bill Monroe (25 tks from his solo 1941 sides through recordings w. Flatt & Scruggs to early Decca), Flatt & Scruggs(25 tks early Columbia) & Stanley Brothers(25 tks Columbia, Rich-R-Tone & Mercury) plus a 4th cd feat.

Uncle Dave Macon, Gid Tanner, Riley Puckett etc, the second Bill & Charlie Monroe, together & alone, the 3rd a great cross section from 1944-1950 with Coon Creek Girls, Grandpa Jones, Bailey Brothers, Curly Fox etc whilst the 4th has more Monroe, Stanley Brothers, Grandpa Jones etc.
4. Boppin’ Hillbilly to Red Hot Rockabilly 118 tracks plus 68 page book. A stunning overview of the shift from hillbilly boogie and bop to rockabilly. A must have for fans of Wayne the Train and Hank III. Features a great sampling of artists including Rose Maddox, Charlene Arthur, Marvin Rainwater, Onie Wheeler, Hardrock Gunter etc through to some we have hardly heard of such as Barney Burcham, Mac Sales, R D Hendon (great version of Hank Snow’s “Music Makin’ Mama from Memphis”.
5. Milton Brown & His Musical Brownies - Daddy of Western Swing 106 tracks. Milton or Bob Wills had a healthy rivalry cut short by his tragic death in a car accident. His band had some of the pioneers such as Cliff Bruner on fiddle, Bob Dunn on steel guitar and Fred “Papa” Calhoun on piano. A must have. Great 32 page book. Virtually his complete recordings.
6. Carter Family – Country Folk 103 tracks. 44page book. Great sound. It dates from their famed Bristol sessions of 1927 (sound is super, Maybelle’s guitar Solo on “Bury Me Under the Weeping Willow” is wild!) through their Decca & Victor recordings. All the famed recordings are here.
7. Doughboys, Playboys & Cowboys: The Golden Years of Western Swing 99 tracks and 44 page book. Brilliantly complied tour of early western swing. Featuring of course Bob Wills & Milton Brown it also has legendary groups such as Lightcrust Doughboys, Tune Wranglers, Cliff Bruner (responsible for the first truck driving song, “Truck Driver’s Blues” with Moon Mullican on vocal…yep, it is here), Smokey Wood, Hank Penny, Johnnie Lee Wills etc.
8. Red Foley – Hillbilly Fever 100 tracks 44 page book. Really gives a great coverage with his first recordings from the mid 30s through to his classic Decca tracks of the 50s including quite a few duets with the great Ernest Tubb.
9. Lefty Frizzell – Give Me More More More 86 tracks 48 page book. The first 3 ½ cds are his classic Columbia recordings of the 50s whilst the last ½ cd has 3 complete radio transcriptions. Wonderful singer who influenced so many,
10. Woody Guthrie – Some Folk 100 tracks (it is folk but country too!) 48 page book. The man responsible for many standards, most notably “This Land Is Your Land”, often considered the unofficial American National Anthem. Graphically and brilliantly wrote about the Depression and dust bowl of the 1930s.
11. Bill Haley – From Western Swing to Rock 94 tracks. 48 page bookBill was a stunning yodeller and that is featured on cd #1, with his early tenure in the Four aces of Swing. None are better than “When the Covered Wagon Rolled Along” and “Yodel Your Blues Away”. Also includes his pre Decca recordings with the Saddlemen such as “Green Tree Boogie” through to early Comets tracks such as “Rock This Joint” through the Comets hits. A great cd.
12. Hillbilly Boogie 100 tracks each with the word boogie in the title. Pre rockabilly, pre rock and roll but don’t they swing. Whilst the likes of Tennessee Ernie are well and there is simply nothing better in history than “Shotgun Boogie” I love the relative unknowns such as Hank Harral with “Dreamband Boogie”…a boogie version of a similar lyric to “Hillbilly Heaven”. One of my favourite boxes. Super 56 page book.
13. Les Paul & Mary Ford – In Perfect Harmony 44 page book108 tracks.
First to overdub in the recording process. Lots of rarities.
14. Charlie Poole – The Essential 80 tracks and 24 page book. Could have been bigger than the Carter Family except he only sang so he could afford to make moonshine. True. And great stuff all the way.
15. Elvis Presley – Tupelo Missisissipi Flash 115 tracks 52 page book. Has his Sun rockabilly tracks plus his early live Louisiana Hayride performances. They are on cd #1…33 of them. The rest is studio.

Includes the original group with Bob Nolan, Leonard Slye (Roy Rogers) and Tim Spencer with the farr brothers through the great members such as Lloyd Perryman, Ken Carson, Tommy Doss, ken Curtis etc.
17. Steelin’ It – The Steel Guitar Story 100 tracks 56 page book. The first cd shows the influence of Hawaii on the sound and the rest feature classic western swing and country featuring the greats such as Herb Remington, Leon McAuliffe, Little Roy Wiggins etc, mainly in a backing capacity but also some instrumentals. Great set. Lots of variety.
18.Stompin’ Singers and Western Swingers 94 tracks and 52 pg book. A stunning cross section of western swing. Many rarities too!! Great companion to box #7 above. Includes selections from Al Dexter, Ted Daffan, Roy Newman, Jerry Irby, Smokey Rogers etc.
19. Swinging Hollywood Hillbilly Cowboys 114 tracks and whopping 64 page book. Focuses on the west country including early recordings from Tommy Duncan, Cliffie Stones, Merl Lindsay, Maddox Brothers & Rose etc then through a veritable who’s who of Capitol label.
20. Ernest Tubb – The Texas Troubadour 100 tracks + 48 page booklet.
One of the greatest and the classics are none better than these. Has 2 cds focussing on his many hits, one on his songwriting and a 4th on others songs including his early “Last Thoughts of Jimmie Rodgers”.
21. Hank Williams – “Hillbilly Hero” 80 tracks plus 6 complete “Health *& Happiness” transcriptions. 52 page booklet. If you don’t have the complete recordings box this is a must.

6. Rare Rock & Roll Rampage 100 tracks plus 44 page book. Includes likes of Boyd Bennett, Rusty Draper, Eddie Fontaine, Treniers, Freddie Bell & bell boys all of who were influenced by the R & B side of things from the likes of Louis Jordan

NOTE: A lot of people seem to be unfamiliar with Keith Whitley, so briefly
he died in 1989 as a result of alcohol abuse. When he died he had a blood
alcohol reading of .49. He was married to Lorrie Morgan at the time. And
he had on of the greatest voices you would ever hear. Think of all the
greats: Haggard, Jones, Jennings, Gosdin, Chesnutt….Whitley was at
least as good, and I strongly emphasise “at least”. Wonderful. Check out
rarities bin too.

http://www.folkways.si.edu/ For those with computers who like
the Folkways stuff that came out from the 40s onwards every single album is available as a custom made cd. If you want any we can get them for $28 including post. They have a great site where you can listen to all. If an item has an SFW prefix it is a regular cd not one of the custom made ones. Some classic folk, country and blues material.
