Marti Brom “ Not For Nothin’ : Tales of Tension & Romance” $30 Goofin’ Records. Marti, which you must pronounce Mar-tee…two distinct syllables…take a small break between them. Marti for the uninitiated is a Texas singer who treads a brilliant line between country and rockabilly music. She doesn’t write much but she has exceptional taste and  her covers are not the overly familiar type. They are sound remarkably fresh. The opener, Wynona Carr’s “Finders Keepers” is an absolute cracker. A classic toe tapper. She does a great cover of Nat Stuckey’s “Sweet Thang” with Bill Kirchen on a duet basis. Terri Joyce, who had a top 10 album with us last year contributes the great “Something Blue” ,a track that sounds like a standard, it is that good. Marti is a superior vocalist and her version is a cracker. Arty Hill ,who is a great honky tonker (shamefully & ridiculously some of his albums are in our $10 bin) contributes “Mascara Tears”, a number replete with a great fiddle and piano solo reminds of that other underecorded great, Mandy Barnett, maybe it this similar Patsy Cline emphasis she places on certain words.  The title track is from Sean Mencher of the group High Noon. Nice production by Peter Bonta, assumably a relative of T Jarrod Bonta, that great piano pounder who is a member of Cornell Hurd’s great band. 15 tracks and another outstanding album from Marti, well in line for a place in the albums of the year list, which will appear in the first newsletter in 2011.

 

Joey & Rory “Album #2” $30 Husband (Rory) and wife (Joey)  team were great on their first album. But this is even better. On the first album Rory was content to do harmony vocals but on this he does a couple of duets as well as a solo number and the great news is he has a fabulous voice. The opener “Album # 2” serves as both an introduction as well as a  witty number about what might happen if they do not succeed. They have no worries. It is a great opener, a shuffle with a real humorous touch. Joey Martin & Rory Feek have a unique blend. Although Rory has a career as a songwriter it is the ability to write songs which fit their combo so rightly that make it so special on this. “Born to Be your Woman” is a classic duet. Why didn’t he solo on the first? You can’t help like the guy. Carl Jackson produces superbly, with a hint of bluegrass on the wonderfully witty “Baby I’ll Come Back to You”. “God Help My Man” is another stunning number in which Joey summarises what she will do to her man if his delay in returning home is a result of him fooling around. This is real Loretta Lynn stuff…”I hope he’s got a real good lawyer cause he’s gonna need one, you know my daddy’s the judge in this town.” “Farm to Fame” is all bout the farm boy who is lucky to get a deal in Nashville, but alas “rags to riches to rags again”.  Joey’s voice is amazing. She has a slightly nasal tone which is not meant to be a putdown in any way, shape or form. She sings with such a sincerity and  clarity that you hang on every word. Rory’s solo spot “My Ol’ Man” is brilliant. He seemingly had a lack of confidence singing solo, and given Joey is so brilliant that is understandable but he has no worries. Mainly piano accompaniment this is a great great performance. The rural theme gives the album a n authentic flavour. The final “This Song’s For You”  is produced by Keith Steagall and features the Zac  Brown album. Hard to find a seconds fault in the entire album; I don’t think there is one. A must have. Who said country music is dead?? Not me, this is as good  as it can get.

 

DVDTruCountry Season 1 3 dVDS$48 The dvd that came out on the Heart of Texas label featured great performances but was hampered by very poor production. This on the other hand has superb production….as good as Austin City Limits and that is saying something. Both visually & aurally this is a1!! Firstly this was a cable tv show which was produced by Heather Myles. This has all 12 episodes of season one (with better news even that season 2 is due anytime). Here’s a quick summary as to who is featured in each episode. I don’t have to say they are Y & T royalty!

Episode 1       Jake Hooker/ Heather Myles/ James Hand

Episode 2       Bode Barker/ Darrell McCall/ Mona McCall

Episode 3       Bobby Flores/ Miss Leslie

Episode 4       Amber Digby/ Justin Trevino  (duet & solo)

Episode 5       Dallas Wayne/ Heather Myles (even a duet)

Episode 6       Jake Hooker/ Jimm Loessberg/ Leona Williams

Episode 7       James Hand/ Bode Barker/ Miss Leslie/ Bobby Flores

Episode 8       Darrell McCall/ Mona McCall/ Heather Myles

Episode 9       Jake Hooker/ Amber Digby (inc. duet)

Episode10     Bobby Flores/ James Hand

Episode11     Heather Myles/ Justin Trevino (inc. duet)

Episode12     Miss Leslie/ Leona Williams

 

Shawn Camp – “1994” $25 Shawn Camp is one of the most talented guys in country music. He has it all; great voice, songwriting skill, multi instrumentalist/ highly personable/ good looking….but he never became a big star as he apparently didn’t want to play the touring game. But, he didn’t really need to as that bloke called Garth Brooks hit #1 with Shawn’s  “Two Pina Coladas”. His own material has been more traditional and this album was one that WB chose not to release but advance to the present and new Warner Brothers President John Esposito going over some old tapes is totally knocked out and insists on an immediate release of this gem. What, a Nashville CEO with musical taste…it couldn’t be true.  “Near Mrs” is about about a relationship that almost made it. “Stop Look & Listen (Cow Catcher Blues)” is a great romp. Great musicians include Richard Bennett, James Burton and producer Emory Gordy. Patty Loveless is a guest vocalist. But I’ll leave the best to last, and it is the last track…”The Grandpa That I Know”. This is about a funeral, and it is brilliant. It evokes comparisons of “Jim, I Wore a Tie today” (to me anyway) but this time it is about the man in the coffin…actually the lyrics say “This ain’t the grandpa that I know”…the one he knew wore overalls, not a pin stripe suit. It has previously been recorded by the excellent Tim Mensy, Shawn’s collaborator, but Shawn’s version is even better with simple instrumentation and a real lump in his throat voice. May be the best track I’ve heard all year. If you scoured all of Nashville you would not find one person who would have anything but the greatest praise for Shawn Camp, both as a person & performer.

 

Peter Cooper – “The Lloyd Green Album”  $30 Firstly this is Peter Cooper’s second solo album and it is right up there with his first which was right up in our album of the year list 2 years ago. Secondly this is unusual in that a lot of the instrumentation is just acoustic guitar and Lloyd Green’s steel guitar. To use the word living legend is probably not giving Lloyd the respect he deserves. The album reminds me a lot of Mike Nesmith’s album “And the Hits Just Keep on Coming”, in which the only instrumentation was Mike on acoustic and Red Rhodes on steel guitar. There are snippets of other instrumentation but they are subdued. “The Last Laugh” is  a song Cooper co-wrote with Todd Snider and  Lloyd’s stunning final steel passage leads into the story song “Elmer the Dancer”.  “What Dub Does” is probably my favourite with a jaunty steel opening leading into the true story of Dub Cornett, a guy who is the friend of all in Nashville…he’s sitting at all good tables and his name’s in the magazines. Only trouble is no one can quite figure out “what Dub does”.  Cooper also interprets Kristofferson’s “Here Comes That Rainbow Again” and “John Hiatt’s “Train to Birmingham” which closes the album with some stunning steel and electric piano (Jen Gunderman) interplay. It is just an entrancing album as was his first. Fayssoux Starling & Rodney Crowell guest on backing vocals.

 

Erin Hay “Blue Country Song” $28 Has long been a favourite but hasn’t risen to the heights we hoped she should have; she is great. This is her first in a while and  it seems the reason is that she and her husband, the wonderfully named Perley Curtis, have had time off to have a baby.  Perley is also excellent on steel guitar and dobro. Erin’s  new album has 12 songs and 4 are written for this album with the rest being covers. I would rate only one, a “why Worry” and that is “Harper Valley PTA” but Erin’s version is great, but the song is so closely associated with Jeannie C Riley. The only mistake on the album. I was going to also include “Between an Old Memory & Me”, a gem when covered by Keih Whitley but wait…the arrangement of this is great. Slowed right down and with a simple backing it is like a new song. The other song choices are superb. “Country Music’s King” is a great shuffle with some nice fiddle by Jim Unger, who rather sadly appears to have recently passed on. “Long Days” , written by her manager Lonnie Radcliff, has some great lines about “long days turning into such short years”. A great traditional style vocalist, this is bound to please all the fans she has gained but I still can’t work out her overall relative anonymity in the world of country music. She is just so darn good.

 

Chris Hillman & Herb Pederson “At Edwards Barn” $30 A live album in which Chris & Herb go back and talk about their careers as well as performing songs that have been associated with the many and varying groups they have been in. Chris of course was a founding member of both the Byrds and the Flying Burrito Brothers whilst Herb was a member of the Dillards, as well as being an in demand session man. They eventually joined together in the Desert Rose Band, which took its name from Chris Hillman’s great Sugar Hill label album (see our $10 bin…a steal), on which Herb played. There are new songs as well which fit in with the Bakersfield sound to which they now lean. Of course songs as Hillman & Gram Parsons’ co-writes “Wheels” and even more so “Sin City” are part of musical history. The anecdotes are great and the performances sublime. All unplugged with the principles on mandolin & guitar, and banjo & guitar respectively.

 

Lonnie Spiker “Coming to a Honky Tonk Near You” $30 Lonnie’s last album was called “Unapologetically Honky Tonk” and for some lucky soul there is a solitary copy in our sale list below. But this is even better as Lonnie has recorded it for our favourite Heart of Texas label with production by Justin Trevino, who with Amber Digby contributes backing vocals. Both of these greats also do stunning duets with Lonnie; Justin on  the opening “Eyes as Big As Dallas’ and Amber on “A Hundred Years from Now”, a great cheating ballad, maybe the best on the album. Damn! It is good. In fact Lonnie wrote 10 of the 13 songs on the album and they are all grand. As always the Heart of Texas crew is great with Reggie Rueffer on fiddle showing there must be one on every corner in Texas! The great Dicky Overbey alternates on steel with Jim Loeessberg. Whether it be a shuffle such as “Soft Place to Fall” or a weeper such as “What’s He Got That I Ain’t Got” it is all class. “Bubbling Under” is a classic drinking song. This album has it all.

 

Wayne Walker “How Do You Think I Feel” $32 European release on the El Toro label which is the first cd for Wayne Walker one of Nashville’s most successful songwriters. A whopping 33 tracks, 18 if you count the 2 duets with Jimmy Lee are Wayne Walker’s own recordings whilst 15 are other artists doing Wayne Walker songs. His own recordings range from rockabilly (“Bo Bo Ska Diddle Daddle” was on several CBS rockabilly compilations) to country (“What Kind of a God do You Think You Are”. Of the Walker songs we get such things as “Holiday for Love” (Webb Pierce), “Rock the Bop” (Brenda Lee), “I’ve Got a New Heartache” (Ray Price), “Rosalie (Is Gonna get Married)” (Faron Young) and so on

 

Roy Acuff “The End of the World” $28

Goldie Hill “Don’t Send Me No More Roses” $28

Joe & Rose Lee Maphis “Cold Heart of Steel” $28

Carl Smith “Happy Birthday My Darling” $30

Four UK releases which for the first time cover the Hickory releases of Acuff and Carl Smith along with the Decca releases of Goldie Hill and Columbia releases of Joe & Rose Lee. The albums are let down a bit by lack of notes but sound good and the content is all first time on cd. Goldie, the second Mrs Carl Smith (after June Carter) has been an artist I’ve been asked for for years. Included are a couple of duets with Justin Tubb; if only someone would release his RCA albums! The 16 songs on her album show her to be a fine traditional vocalist. There are  20 songs on the Acuff album including several Hank Williams covers. The Maphis album has 10 duets plus 5 Joe guitar instrumentals and a real up tempo number from Rose. The 22 tracks on the Carl Smith are superb with great range of styles. It didn’t chart but his version of “Drinking Champagne” may be  the best of the lot. Great stuff.

 

Ken Mellons – “Rural Route” $30New bluegrass album which features duets with both Vince Gill and the stunningly gorgeous Sonya Isaacs.

 

Conway Twitty – “Next in Line/ Darling, You Know I Wouldn’t Lie” $30

Conway Twitty – “I Love You More Today/To See My Angel Cry/That’s When She Started to Stop Loving you” $30

Conway’s Decca albums have had a song here and a song there on compilations but this is the first time they have been issued in their entirety to my knowledge. The first two are from 1968 and the other two are from 1969 & 1970. Conway’s albums were mainly written by others and as at the time there were quite a few covers, Conway puts his own slant on things such as “DI-V-O-R-C-E”, “mama’s Hungry Eyes” and even “Proud Mary” but was always able to tweak them enough to make them his . “Darling, You Know I Wouldn’t Lie” may be a half head in front as  the best of these 4 albums and that edge is given by 2 Conway songs, “Bad Man” & “Bad Girl”. “Next in Line”, the song, gave Conway his first #1 country single whilst the title song “Darling You Know I Wouldn’t Lie” was his second. These give a great indicator of the early part of Conway’s massive country career in which he is rated one of the 10 all time great charting artists.

                                                            time humour and some great guitar.

Ball, David                                         David Ball $30 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??

                                                            & singer he reminds of George Strait

                                                            in the late 80s! Superb, Mrs Johnson. The

                                                            first listed was his first CBS album & may

                                                            be the best value in the entire newsletter

Britton, Marsha                                Good Times & Hard Times $30 Great

Browne, Jann                                   It Only Hurts When I Laugh. $25 Great west coast singer reminiscent of Emmylou.

                                                            one of 1989’s 3 best new artists along w.

                                                            Blame”, “Tennessee Waltz With Me” etc

Cryner, Bobbie                                 Bobbie Cryner $35 I always say this gem

                                                            is the best album by a female we have

                                                            ever had & (until Miss Leslie came along)

                                                            the only time I have heard a female sing

                                                            like George Jones. Very much like Melba

                                                            Montgomery to these ears.

Conlee, John                                     20 Greatest Hits (MCA) $30

Conlee, John                                     Fellow Travellers (16th Avenue) $35

Conlee, John                                     Harmony (Columbia) $40

                                                            Classic country vocalist & very popular.

                                                            The first is all his great MCA hits such as

                                                            “Busted” & the incredibly warped “I

                                                            Don’t Remember Loving You” which the

                                                            great Harlan Howard cited as one of the

                                                            very favourites he had written (and there

                                                            were indeed a few). The second was on a

                                                            label that went bankrupt and 3rd an

                                                            impossible to find gem on Columbia, with

                                                            the highlight being “Class reunion”.

Dalton, Lacy J                                   Crazy Love $30 Stunning album which

                                                            features a great version of Van Morrison

                                                            title but the highlight is “Little Boy Blue”

                                                            one of the best things you’ll ever hear.

Dalton, Lacy J                                   Survivor $45 an amazing album; easily her best & that is saying something given the overall quality. Her version of Guy Clark’s “Old Friends” ranks as one of the best recordings ever!!! “Hard Luck Ace” makes reference to both Waylon & Janis Joplin. A magical album.

Davies, Gail                                       Pretty Words $25 The ubiquitous Jimmy
Bowen was in a class of his own at the
end of the 1980s. All songs by Gail inc.
“I Don’t Know Why” which was
renamed “Tell Me Why” & was title
track of Jann Browne’s debut. Top cd.

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 coach. We

                                                            still await his third album.

Delray, Martin                                  What Kind of Man XXXXSALEXXXX $25

                                                            Second of only 2 albums.

Dillon, Dean                                      I’ve Learned to Live $48 second of his

                                                            Things” as well as “Changes Going On”

                                                            which hit for Alabama. Still more, a great

                                                            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.

Earle, Steve                                      Uncut Gems $40 20 tracker put out by his

                                                            Publishing company. Some have never

                                                            tracks plus his “Green Christmas” tracks.

Frickie, Janie                                    Labor of Love $28 This 1989 CBS release

was one  of her best two with the highlight being stunning version of Steve Earle’s best song, “My Old Friend the Blues”.

Frickie, Janie                                    Saddle the Wind $30 Ironically her best

                                                            two albums were ones in which she

                                                            changed the spelling of her true name

                                                            “Fricke” to reflect the pronunciation.

                                                            This even starts with a stunning swing

                                                            number in “Sugar Moon”.

Gosdin, Vern                                     Alone $30 Came after his best “Chiselled in Stone” and was 100% cry in your beer ballads; as good as any George Jones album, ever!

Gosdin, Vern                                     The Voice $30 1998 classic which proved

                                                            Vern had not as yet reached the other

                                                            Am (MCA) 2 on 1 $48. The second cd is

                                                            out of print and to have it with the

                                                            classic “Back to the Barrooms” is a plus.

Haggard, Merle                                Chill Factor $25 Original album

Haggard, Merle                                It’s All in the Game $35 Epic Out of print.

Haggard, Merle                                His Greatest And Best $25 MCA collection

Hardwick, Billy                                 Too Country $25 A great singer and

                                                            writer’s only album. Like Dean Dillon. A+

Harms, Joni                                      Hometown Girl $35 Joni’s original Capitol

                                                            album. Very hard to get.

Homer & Jethro                               America’s Song Butchers: The Weird

                                                            World of Homer & Jethro. $35 Great

                                                            humour and equally fine musicianship.

                                                            Apparently they were originally billed by

                                                            their real names till some guy forgot who

                                                            they were & on the spur of a moment

                                                            said…”Here are Homer & Jethro” and it

                                                            stuck. 20 track on Razor & Tie. OOP

Honeys                                              Capitol Collectors Series $40 Not a

                                                            country one but a classic of female pop

                                                            mixed with surf elements as Marilyn

                                                            Rovell married Brian Wilson of the Beach

                                                            Boys. 20 great tracks. Very influential.

Horton, Steven Wayne                   Steven Wayne Horton Capitol album from

                                                            1989 was sadly his one & only. What you

                                                            get is a great upbeat album a la Marty

                                                            Stuart “Hillbilly Rock” but better.  $28

House, James                                   Hard Times for an Honest Man $40

                                                            His second MCA album was even better

                                                            than his first self titled album & is

                                                            very very hard to get.

Husky, Ferlin                                    Capitol Collectors Series $38 This is a

                                                            wonderful cd. The entire Capitol

                                                            Collectors Series is a must and though

                                                            repeating myself represents an artist’s

                                                            best output. 20 tracks

Jenkins                                              The Jenkins $35 Record companies are

                                                            in general a brainless bunch as proved by

                                                            the fact this album didn’t get a release. It

                                                            is  a gem and featured a mother & two

                                                            daughters. Sound is superb with a

                                                            reminder of the Judds & McCarters.            

Johnson, Johnnie & Kentucky Headhunters That’ll Work $30 This was just

                                                            a one off unfortunately as Chuck Berry’s

                                                            piano player worked very well with the

                                                            Kentucky Headhunters, who had an

                                                            amazing rhythm section, which is

                                                            why they could fit inside the country

                                                            genre.

Jones, George                                  Friends in High Places $30 All duets

Jones, George                                  Wine Colored Roses $48 1986 album

                                                            is very very hard to find on cd.

Jones, George                                  Alone Again/Grand Tour $40 2 on 1.

                                                            “Alone Again” is only available here

                                                            & is rated one of his very best albums.

Jones, George                                  One Woman Man $35 Personal favourite.

                                                            “Place in the Country” is one of his best

                                                            unknown songs. Right up there with “He

                                                            Stopped Lovin’ Her Today” & with the

                                                            delicious irony he only gets his wish

                                                            when he is buried!

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

                                                            was the last album he did for Epic & it

                                                            may be his best. Superb songs & he is in

                                                            absolutely wonderful voice.

Jones, Geo./Melba Montgomery  Vintage Collection $55 20 classics!! Out

of print and has all the wonderful United

Artists’ label duets.His best duet partner.

Jones, George                                  Sings Bob Wills $28 OOP Razor & Tie

Jones, George                                  Live at Dancetown USA $50 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”!!

Jones, George                                  The Rock: Stone Cold Country 2001 Radio

                                                            under-recorded singer as well.

Kendalls                                             20 Favorites $35 The Kendalls made one

                                                            album for Epic where they went and

                                                            re-recorded their hits. The result was

                                                            even better than the originals with

                                                            the highlight being Royce’s lead on

                                                            “Pittsburgh Stealers”.

Lind, Bob                                           Best of Bob Lind $35 25 tracker

                                                            Inc. #1 hit “Elusive Butterfly”.

                                                            $20. Hard to believe they only ever had 2

                                                            albums. This billed as “Jennifer MCarter

                                                            & the McCarters” features a stunning

                                                            take on the Crowded House song. Has

                                                            slight bluegrass leanings & great songs.

McDaniel, Mel                                   Rockabilly Boy $35  There is no better

                                                            song than “You Can’t Play the Blues in

                                                            An Air conditioned Room”!!!!

McQuaig, Scott                                 Scott McQuaig $35 This album is

                                                            deserving of a special award and that is

                                                            “Best Album by an Artist Who only Ever

                                                            Had One Album”. Haven’t given up hope

                                                            of a second but won’t hold my breath.

                                                            And whilst Scott wrote 5 songs on this

                                                            album, all of which are great his version

                                                            of “My Friend the Bottle”  is as good as

                                                            that other ode to the inanimate object,

                                                            Johnny Bush’s version of “Bottle Bottle”.

                                                            Certainly vintage George Strait fans will

                                                            (pardon the pun), lap this up.

McRight, Alecia                                For Love’s Sake $25 rare independent

                                                            album from the wonderful Alecia Nugent.

                                                            Not sure if “Nugent” is married/single/

                                                            married again or divorced name but this

                                                            is a great album prod. by Carl Jackson/

Martin, Sonny                                   I’ve Always Been Country $38 Great indie

                                                            with the saddest song ever on it. “Rock

                                                            A Bye Baby” makes Little Jimmy Dickens’

                                                            “Raggedy Ann” seem jolly!

Miller, Roger                                     Best of Volume One: Country Tunesmith

                                                            $48 This gem focusses on Roger’s own

versions of songs that were hits for others. As such the 20 tracks are ultra

rare & essential. They include “Tall Tall

                                                            “Husbands & Wives”, “Half a Mind” etc.

Moffatt, Katy                                    Greatest Show on Earth $20 *** on sale**** Taken of the market as Ringling Bros objected to the title. Superb album & purists will  need this version. It was later reissued as “Evangeline Hotel”.

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 all his 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 instantly 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. $40

Newton, Wayne                               Coming Home $25 No I haven’t gone nuts

                                                            as this is a 1989 country album

                                                            which is really good and features a great

                                                            duet with Tammy Wynette. All good.

                                                            Kane. Wonderful songs with a touch of

                                                            bluegrass. The debut self titled is almost

                                                            impossible to get.

Owens, Buck                                    Hot Dog $30

Owens, Buck                                    Kickin’ In $30

                                                            w. the highlight “I Can’t Quit Drinking”.

                                                            Also issued as “I’m a Survivor” ($25)

Paycheck, Johnny                           The Difference in Me $38 Rare 1993

                                                            album on the Playback label with classic

                                                            takes on “The waltz of the Angels” & “My

                                                            Name’s Not on the Sidewalk” in

                                                            in particular.

Pennington,R/Buddy Emmons     Swinging by Request $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. This 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.

Peters, Gretchen                         Buried Treasures 14 great songwriting

                                                     demos which place her in the same

                                                     league as the likes of Iris Dement and

                                                            Emmylou Harris. Like Steve Earle’s

                                                            “Uncut Gems” this was put out as a demo

                                                            disc but is as fine a female country/ folk

                                                            album as we have ever had. $55 It is

                                                            exceedingly rare & then some. Simply put

                                                            you will not find a copy except here.

Price, Ray                                         Sometimes a Rose $25 great 90s album

                                                            which contains one of our favourite

                                                            tracks in “Not a Dry Eye in the House.”

Price, Ray                                         Happens To Be the Best $30 16 tracks of

                                                            CBS material issued on Pair label. As

                                                            such a mix of rare and well known tracks.

Raye, Susan                                      16 Greatest Hits $30. Out of print on the

                                                            Varese label.

Rhodes, Kimmie                               West Texas Heaven XXXspecial PriceXXX $20 In the top 2-3 female folk-country

                                                            albums ever & has duets with Willie,

                                                            Waylon & Townes Van Zandt. A steal.

Rich, Charlie                                     Pictures & paintings $38 His wonderful

                                                            last album on Warner Brothers is just as

                                                            much jazz and blues as country. Shown

                                                            with a lighted cigarette we wonder if it

                                                            was perhaps lit with the same lighter he

                                                            set fire to the envelope with when he

                                                            announced John Denver as Male Vocalist

                                                            of the year in the early 70s!

Ritter, Tex                                         Capitol Collectors Series $35 25 tracks in

                                                            this great series. Has all you need if you

                                                            only want one disk! Blood on the Saddle/

                                                            Deck of Cards/ Hillbilly Heaven/ Just

                                                            Beyond the Moon. Briliant selections

Rogers, Roy                                      On Track Radio Special $30 Radio special

                                                            based on Roy’s final album “Tribute”

Schneider, John                               Too Good to Stop Now/Tryin’ to Outrun

                                                            The Wind 2 on 1 $38

Schneider, John                               You Ain’t Seen the Last of Me $22

                                                            Great singer.  2on1 features albums

                                                            from 1984 & 1985 whilst the latter is

                                                            probably his last album from 1987.

Scott, Jack                                        Capitol Collectors series $35. 23 Capitol

                                                            tracks including the hit “What in the

                                                            World’s Come Over You” Also has 4

                                                            previously unissued tracks. All great!

Seals, Dan                                         Rage On $25 His 1988 Capitol

                                                            album with the classic title and the

                                                            great “Five Generations of Rock County

                                                            Wilsons”.

Sears, Dawn                                     What a Woman Wants to Hear $20

                                                            WB 1990 album Great traditional feel.

Seekers                                             Capitol Collectors Series $25 It is this

                                                            great series again & it is hard to believe

                                                            that as quintessentially Australian they

are the best ever compilation is clearly this both in terms of selection & sound.

Shafer, Sanger D “Whitey”           I Never Go Around Mirrors $35 10 tracker

                                                            by the writer of many of Lefty Frizzell

                                                            hits who also sounds a lot like Lefty.

Shaver, Billy Joe                              Salt of the Earth $30

Shepard, Jean                                  Honky Tonk Heroine Classic Capitol

                                                            Recordings 1952-1964 24 track out of

                                                            print gem on CMF label $38

Shepard, Jean                                  Signature Series $22 14 Capitol tracks.

Smith, Russell                                  This Little Town $35 Great solo album  

                                                            Amazing Rhythm Aces vocalist.

Smith, Sammi                                   Best $30 Another must have out of

                                                            print cds

Springfield, Bobby Lee                   All Fired Up $35 Great honky tonk with

                                                            rockabilly feel. Includes the original

                                                            “Hank Drank”. See Scott McQuaig. This

                                                            would be a top 5 in that list.

Starr, Lucille                                     The French Song $30 Expanded 17

                                                            tracker, now out of print.

Stewart, Wynn                                 California Country- Best of the Challenge

                                                            Masters. $30 29 great tracks from one of

                                                            the west coast’s absolute best. OOP

Thompson, Hank                             Capitol Collectors Series $25 20 great

                                                            Capitol tks including “Blackboard of My

                                                            Heart”, which rarely pops up.

Thompson, Hank                             Dance Ranch/Songs for Rounders $55

                                                            The first is a great album, but the second

                                                            is simply one of the greatest in country

                                                            music history. It is the first stereo

                                                            country album and the first themed

                                                            country album. Up until that time most

                                                            albums were based around a couple of

                                                            hits with a lot of filler. It is otherwise

                                                            only available on the $400+ Bear Family

                                                            box set.

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”.

 

Thornton, Marsha                            Marsha Thornton $28 Includes the

                                                            original and easily best version of “Bottle

                                                            of Wine & Patsy Cline” One of the last

                                                            albums produced by Owen Bradley &

                                                            yes Patsy fans love it. This is a corner

                                                            missing on the booklet.

Thornton, Marsha                            Maybe the Moon Will Shine. Second of

                                                            only 2 is equally good. Gets away from

                                                            Patsy influence. XXXSALEXXXX $20

Tubb, Ernest                                     Live 1965 $28 OOP on Rhino this like

                                                            George Jones’ Dancetown showed 1965

                                                            as a vintage year for live recording even

                                                            though both were not issued at the time.

                                                            His band included both Jack Greene &

                                                            Cal Smith.

Wade, Norman                                 For A Minute There $40

                                                            Think Vernon Oxford meets George Jones

with a bit of Hank Thrown in. This one was his second & last cd on the Bob Grady label and what can I say is stunning. We sold  them by the bucket & every one loved  them. His “new’ album which was due out “next month” (about 10 years ago) is still coming!! Hopefully.

Wade, Norman                                 Old Time Country Music $30 his equally

                                                            fine 2002 album.

Wagoner, Porter                             Greatest Hits $28 Great compilation on

                                                            Pair label (all original RCA recordings)

                                                            Top selection includes “Rubber Room”.

Watson, Gene                                  Back in the Fire $48 Great singer as he is

                                                            & 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                                  The Good Old days $30 Step One with a

                                                            superb selection excellently produced by

                                                            Ray Pennington who also contributed 4

                                                            Songs.

Watson, Gene                                  Jesus Is All I Need $30 Great 1997

                                                            gospel album on the defunct Step One.

Wells, Kitty                                       Duets $30 16 tracks on Pair records with

                                                            Red Foley/Webb Pierce/ Roy Drusky etc

West, Speedy/Jimmy Bryant       For the Last time $25 (Step One label)

Whitley, Keith                                  I Wonder Do You Think of Me

                                                            $35. The album he had just finished

                                                            when he died. One of the greatest ever

                                                            country vocalists. Deep rich voice with

                                                            his own nuances. Pity the wonderful

                                                            honky tonk songs were lived out so

                                                            tragically with his alcohol overdose.

Whitley, Keith                                  Kentucky Bluebird $35 15 tracks not on

                                                            his other albums. Augmented with some

                                                            historical and rare clips.

                                                crutch (with good reason as he sadly lost both

                                                legs in a car accident) Anyway this is his first

BOX SETS

**Arnold,Eddy  There’s Been a Change in Me 6cds + 52 page book. Bear Family’s second Eddy Arnold box covers the years 1951-1955. $140

 

**Bear Family 35th Anniversary box set.  $90 has 3 cds plus a 200 page 12x12” hardcover book which gives a history of the label and has photos of all the releases. Experts rate the best Bear Family releases The 3 cd set has al lnew songs by various artists with a common theme of “bears”. If you have ever bought a Bear Family cd and thought “how good is this”, then this is a must have item for you. Very heavy 3 kgs. Incidentally the text is often quite witty…hard to believe it comes from Germany!! For example the section where people reveal their favourite Bear release is called “The House is Burning”…in other words if it were burning, what would you grab first.

 

**Carter Family 1927-34  5cds JSP $22

 

**Carter, Wilf Cowboy songs 8 cd (over 200 songs) + 40 page book .$140 From his beginnings through to 1940. Highly sought Montana Slim at his best!!

 

**Driftwood, Jimmie “Americana” Bear Family 3 cd  82 tracks 24 page book.

 

**Dusty, Slim  - The Man who Is Australia 5cd $50 OOP…now let me see which self proclaimed guru is actually said to have given Slim the s***s.

Very hard to get now.

 

**Eagles – CD box $55  The complete Asylum recordings with reproduction of the original covers. 7 albums including the 2cd “Live” plus bonus “Please Come home for Christmas” Nice one!!

 

**Felts, Narvel: Limited Club Edition Vol. One $20 2cds 44 tracks.

 

**From the Vaults of Decca: Country Classics 1934-1973 60 tracks, many rare, such as the first trucking song…Cliff Bruner’s “Truck Driver’s Blues” with Moon Mullican on vocals as well as tracks by Cousin Emmy, Jan Howard, Claude Gray etc. Has promo sticker on box $38


**From Where I Stand:The Black Experience in Country Music 60 tracks put out by Country Music Foundation through Warner Bros. 60pg book. Gives a complete history of African American artists and country music. CD 1 & 3 are particularly great. Many people think of black artists merely in terms of Charley Pride. This shows there is more, much more. $48

 

**Harris, Emmylou - Portraits 3cds WB OOP 61 tracks plus book including several unreleased tracks. And blow me down if it isn’t pre “Wrecking Ball”!! ….the most overrated album ever. Critics just don’t know. They have serious mental problems  and hence tend to rate things they don’t understand more highly than they should, for fear of being uncool….how else could you describe the fact that Emmylou’s angelic voice doesn’t need a bunch of grunge guitars or a pretentious producer such as Daniel Lanois. Please! $48

 

**Hotter in Hawaii 4cds 105 tracks inc. all the greats Sol Hoopi, Roy Smeck and a bunch of Pahinuis…well there probably are 1 or 2 $35

On JSP UK.

 

**Jim & Jesse  The Old Dominion Masters $60  12”x12” box 101 tracks on Pinecastle label including full size 16 page book.

**Monroe, Bill “Essential 1945-49” 2cds 40 tracks. 36 pg book. Includes his first recordings with Flatt & Scruggs.

 

**Nelson, Rick Legacy 4 cds OOP Capitol $60 100 tracks. Label spanning box set; and he did some great country stuff. Though it should in essence be credited to “Ricky” not “Rick” as near the end of his career he began referring to himself as “Ricky’ after finally meeting his hero Carl Perkins who called him “Ricky”. And again from a purely blokey point of view, he’d have to be the best looking male vocalist of all time.

 

**Next Stop Is Vietnam The war on Record 1961-2008  13 cds  + 300 page hardcover book. $350 ($40 off) Covers many genres, not just country even though the biggest representation is country.  The introduction is written by Country Joe McDonald, a person who I was singularly unimpressed with when I met him. BUT regardless the set is a stunner.

 

**Buck, Owens  “Collection” 3cds 62 tracks plus great book. Have as new

unsealed $45 or sealed $55

 

**Oxford, Vernon “Keeper of the Flame” Bear Family $120 sealed 5cd + 36 page book is literally as good as it gets. Is $60 off new

**Rodgers, Jimmie: The Singing Brakeman Bear Family 6cds plus 60 page book jammed with previously unseen photographs. His complete recordings and in Bear Family quality$140

 

**Rogers, Kenny A Retrospective Through the Years 4 cds 80 track $45

You reckon Paul Hogan’s eyes look unnatural after the plastic surgery “he never had”!! Kenny looks like some form of lizard. I thought (in a purely blokey way) that he always looked great and would have aged accordingly. But fear not the real Kenny is on the cover. Includes his great Kenny Rogers & First Edition hits.

 

**Songs of the West  sealed 4cd box on Rhino. Long out of print. Has great book. $70 Each cd has a specific theme:

a)Cowboy Classics

b)Silver Screen Cowboys, but not from the movies as it includes Slim Pickins’ fabulous take on Guy Clark’s “Desperados Waiting fot the Train”. I love Slim’s voice and the way he refers to people as “Hoss” Also on this

“Last of the Silver Screen Cowboys” by Rex Allen Jnr w. help from RexSnr and Roy Rogers.

c)Gene Autry & Roy Rogers

d) Movie and Television themes

**Williams, Hank Jnr – “Living Proof: The MGM recordings 1963-1975” 3 cds 24 pg book. $55 This is all out of print. 82 tracks in all. Great selection, & very  traditional including some classics from “Luke the Drifter Jnr”, esp the narration “I Was With Red Foley”.

 

**Yoakam, Dwight - “Reprise Please Baby” $60 Now Out of print. 4 cds with great cover. Inc. 52 page book. 87 tracks including many only available on this box.

Rhino deletions

Rhino is perhaps the best reissue company in the USA. They have recently deleted a bunch of stuff across the board. These are some we have been able to get. The above Dwight is also on that list. Not all are country so  look carefully and make sure you don’t miss out. THESE ARE ALL SEALED & AGAIN NO LONGER AVAILABLE.

 

**Doors Box set $55 4cds 3 live plus one of band favourites. 1 copy.

**Garcia, Jerry – Very Best  2cds $25

 

*********Harris, Emmylou “Songbird: Rare Tracks & Forgotten Gems” $70 4cds + dvd  78 tracks plus 10 on the DVD. This is as an attractive package as I have ever seen, With a denim box comes 2 books one with the cds and dvds and the other a glorious book about the wonderful lady. Even if you think you have all the Emmylou you want and even if you think “Wrecking Ball” is good (minimalist coverage here) you will need to get the 6 unissued duets with George Jones. Previously of course their only recorded duet was on Marty Stuart’s “The Pilgrim” well low and behold that has been expanded 6 times. One of these is the great Townes’ track “Snowing on Raton”. ************* Only 3 available.

 

**Jones, Rickie Lee “Duchess of Coolsville” An Anthology 3cds $28 Over 3 hours with unreleased studio & live tracks included.

BOOKS (Hard cover unless noted)

Buck Owens The Biography” by Eileen Sisk $30 A warts and all account of the life of the man from Bakersfield…and it is mostly warts. Buck was in many ways the epitome of everything bad about a boss (as he was to the Buckaroos)…exploitive, manipulative, vindictive…you name the “ive” and you can guarantee he was it. Also has a great focus on his music and successes.

 

Country Music Goes to War” edited by Charles Wolfe Interesting that  Australian Andrew Smith is part responsible for the opening chapter on the American Civil war; music that originated during the time as well as discussions of modern interpretations such as “White Mansions”. There is a chapter by Wolfe himself about “War Songs in Early Country Music” and also one about Gene Autry in World War II. Of course we also get a cold war perspective from a country music point of view. It even continues to the Gulf War & 9/11,. Anything associated with the late Wolfe is worthy. $20

 

“Country Music Humorists & Comedians” Loyal Jones 430 pages covering rarely written about artists such as Chris Bouchilon, “the talking blues man” and Don Bowman. Gives alphabetical entries including such illuminaries as George D Hay, lulubelle & Scotty, J D Mainer and so on. It is so much more tham what the title would suggest. $30

 

“Discovering Country Music” by Don Cusic. Terrible cover which indicates this as some kind of glossy fan thing but it really is a good overview.He doesn’t linger on one subject and ther are some excellent pieces: Songs of the Working Man/Religion & Country Music/Country Music & Patriotism. Even extends to the downloading age and its potential effect on music in general. $15

 

“Finding Her Voice: The Saga of Women in Country Music” by Robert K Oermann & Mary Bufwack Certainly one of the best ever book son country music. Incredible depth and coverage at a tad under 600 pages. As an example it traces the last days of Charlene Arthur, a lady who should have been a big star, as well as the likes of Kitty Wells and Jean Shepard. Truly grand $35

 

“Forever Changes: Arthur Lee and the Book of Love”  $22 334 pages, like the Dylan book doesn’t quite show how comprehensive this book is. Arthur Lee was leader of the group “Love” who made the album “Forever Changes” considered at least one of the top 10 rock albums of all time. It is a sift rock masterpiece indeed and this book gives a superb coverage of not only that but all other recordings by Lee and his life.

 

“Good Natured Riot: Birth of the Gran Ol’ Opry” $28 Great research and easy to read. Fascinating chapter on Deford Bailey the black harmonica player and the prejudices and difficulties he faced.

 

“Hank Williams: Snapshots from the Lost Highway” by Colin Escott & Kira Florita. 10 ½ inches square cover is ideal for the previously unseen photos and other memorabilia much of which materialised after a meeting between Marty Stuart and Irene Williams Smith, Hank’s sister who made available many of the treasures that are presented herein. $28

 

“Jimmie Rodgers” by Nolan Porterfield soft cover 460 pages. The definitive work. $15

 

“Joni Mitchell: Will You Take Me As  I Am: Her Blue Period” Michelle Mercer  Mitchell’s “Blue” is often considered the greatest female folk album of all time, though  I would argue “Ladies of the Canyon” is at least as good.236 pages $20 In effect a great biography with an emphasis on the music.

 

“King Records of Cincinatti” Randy McNutt 126 page softback. Lots of pictures. Amazing label that mixed white & black music together. Got their start on hillbilly yet got their success with the Godfather of soul. aka James Brown, whose “Please Please Please” is the greatest live performance ever, in which he works to the point of exhaustion. His valet comes in, drapes a cape over his shoulders and leads him off the stage. But he won’t go…he fights off the valet and on a down beat the cape gets slammed to the floor….he stumbles back to the mike and he starts again. Amazing. This book is 50% hillbilly at least. $10

 

“Looking Back to See: A Country Music Memoir” by Maxine Brown $28

Great anecdotes of what it was like when The Browns were the biggest thing in country music, and music in general with “The Three Bells” being a US pop #1 for a month.

 

Lovesick Blues: The Life of Hank Williams” by Paul Hemphill  $10 Another respected work

 

Nashville Chrome: A Novel” Rick Bass has done something similar to what Chet Flippo did in his “Your Cheatin’ Heart” book on Hank Williams in telling the story of the Browns  as a narrative capturing the facts inside the novel, but sometimes what seems fact is actually fiction.  Makes an interesting read. $15

 

“Ring of Fire: The Johnny Cash Reader”  Michael Streissguth editor Collection of writings about Johnny Cash from over the years. Pieces from likes of Patrick Carr, Nick Tosches, Alanna Nash, Ralph J Gleason etc 300 pg $18

 

River of No Return: Tennessee Ernie Ford” by Jeffrey Buckner Ford $28

Great book which pulls no punches. Despite his jovial personae Ern had many demons and despite being written by his son they are not glossed over, nor is it a bitter “Mommy Dearest” kind of book.

 

Satisfied Mind: The Country Music Life of Porter Wagoner” by Steve Eng $30 Long out of print 450 + page epic about the man affectionately known as..come to think of it I better not put that in…it is a family publication after all, but shall we say there was only one thing Porter looked for in a woman and that was a pulse. A great run down on his private and public and musical life.

 

“Shania Twain: The Biography” Robin Eggar 370 page soft back $10

 

“Shelter from the Storm: Bob Dylan’s Rolling thunder Years” $18 2010 soft cover by Sid Griffin. Revolves around the tour and his “Desire” album. Has interviews with likes of McGuinn.  254 pages doesn’t quite reflect the detail of the content.

 

“Singing in the Saddle: The History of the singing Cowboy” by Douglas B Green. $35 large hardcover. Ranger Doug of Riders in the Sky was a noted writer before adapting his stage personae and he went back and did this definitive book. Everything about this is great.

 

“Southern Music / American Music”  Bill C Malone & David Stricklin

soft cover 236 page Great cross genre book with fascinating stories about the young Bessie Smith, through Jimmie Rodgers and even Iris Dement & Lucinda Williams. $15

 

Stonemans: An Appalachian Family and the Music Which Shaped Their Lives” Ivan Tribe  soft back 361 pg $20

 

“They Came to Nashville” by Marshall Chapman $20 Recording artist Chapman interviews a bunch of stars, some you don’t usually see interviewed such as Mary Gauthier. Also includes Kris Kristoffesron, Emmylou, Bobby Bare, Miranda Lambert, John Hiatt plus an extended coverage of Willie Nelson.
