Bishop Dickie - The Dickie Bishop Story 1955-1961 – No Other Baby (CD)€13,00
Singer/guitarist/banjo-plucker/songwriter DICKIE BISHOP, a sideman whose name is synonymous with Chris Barber and Lonnie Donegan, should have been a contender for solo success, but seemed instead destined to a career in supporting roles.
Indeed, he featured heavily on a pair of million-selling singles, Donegan’s ’Lost John’ and Barber’s ’Petite Fleur’.
His own most well-known song, ’No Other Baby’, was covered by The Vipers and Bobby Helms (the latter, a UK hit), while in the 1990s it was famously revived by Paul McCartney, who took it back into the UK charts.
This collection comprises his four humongously-collectable solo singles from 1957/58, on which Dickie was backed by his own group, The Sidekicks, alongside a selection of his most notable appearances as a singer and/or sideman, between 1955 and 1961, recorded variously with Barber, Donegan, Johnny Duncan, Monty Sunshine and Kenny Ball.
Several of Dickie’s solo sides have never previously appeared on CD, while this is the first time that his career has been thus anthologised, making for a unique, highly-desirable compilation.
Stanley Brothers - Carter & Ralph – Selected Singles 1953-1960 (CD)€13,00
Musical brothers and Bluegrass music are almost synonymous with each other. Many of the greats of the genre were siblings – Bill and Charlie Monroe, Jim and Jesse McReynolds, Bobby and Sonny Osborne being three of the most famous family names of this rural variant of hillbilly music. Among the most famous of all the actual brother acts in bluegrass, Carter and Ralph Stanley are without peer.
In a recording career that began in the late 1940s and that stalled in the mid-60s after Carter Stanley tragically drank himself to death – at which point Ralph began a second, even more successful career that spanned the next half century – the Stanley Brothers recorded and introduced some of the finest bluegrass recordings made by anyone, at any time. This new Jasmine collection brings together the best of their sides for the Mercury, Starday and King labels from the 1950s and early 60s – a period during which they were at their peak as performers, and one that produced some of the most important and essential bluegrass recordings of all.
As well as exceptional vocal and instrumental skills, this compilation shows the breadth of material in the Stanley’s discography. Sacred songs, seasonal songs, covers of R&B hits and indeed one of Mr. Monroe’s ’Blue Moon Of Kentucky’ performed in the style of Elvis Presley’s Sun recording – these are just a few of the delights in store for you here. Naturally it also includes their most famous recording of ’I’m A Man of Constant Sorrow’, a song that underwent a rebirth of popularity after being featured in the soundtrack of the film ’Oh Brother, Where Art Thou?’
As always, remastered from the best possible sources and featuring a comprehensive biography, this superb selection of premium bluegrass is but a small part of a very big catalogue that may well be explored further. Purchase of a copy will go a long way to making that happen!
Sinatra Nancy - Start Walkin’ 1965-1976 (Ltd, digipak) (CD)€25,00
2021 definitive digitally remastered compilation including solo recordings, rarities and duets with Lee Hazlewood. Remastered from the original analog tapes by Grammy-nominated engineer John Baldwin, the collection is complemented by liner notes penned by Amanda featuring insightful new interviews with Sinatra, as well as a Q&A with archivist and GRAMMY®-nominated reissue co-producer, Hunter Lea. Nancy’s performance of the Lee Hazlewood-penned song ”These Boots Are Made for Walkin'” was a huge hit in 1966 and became her signature tune. The pair began a three year run of successful albums, duets, and singles including ”Sugar Town,” ”Some Velvet Morning,” ”Summer Wine,” ”Sand,” ”Jackson,” and the title track to the 1967 James Bond film ”You Only Live Twice.” Start Walkin’ explores Nancy’s recordings with Lee, her inspired collaborations with songwriter Mac Davis (”Hello L.A., Bye Bye Birmingham”), producer Lenny Waronker (”Hook and Ladder”), and the ”should’ve been hit” song with arranger/producer Billy Strange (”How Are Things In California.”). Over the years, she has been cited as an influence by countless artists, including Sonic Youth, Morrissey, Calexico, U2, and Lana Del Rey. Her haunting song ”Bang, Bang” gained a new legion of fans when it appeared in the opening credits of Quentin Tarantino’s 2003 film, Kill Bill Volume 1.

Flatlanders - Treasure Of Love (CD)€18,00
Almost 50 years after the sessions that would make them an ”accidental Texas supergroup” (Rolling Stone), The Flatlanders have return with Treasure of Love, their first new album in more than a decade. Completed during COVID-19 lockdowns with the help of longtime friend and collaborator Lloyd Maines, the record finds the iconic trio of Joe Ely, Jimmie Dale Gilmore, and Butch Hancock in classic form, serving up a rollicking collection of twang-fueled, harmony-laden performances full of wry humor and raw heartbreak. While a few songs here are never-before-heard originals, the vast majority of the tracklist consists of tunes the band picked up during their half-century together, some stretching as far back as the group’s earliest performances in the honkytonks around Lubbock, TX, where you might have spotted Willie Nelson or Townes Van Zandt in the audience.

The album premieres 13 new Loretta Lynn recordings, intimate and electrifying performances of a career-spanning selection of songs illuminating different aspects of her repertoire. The collection is centered around Loretta’s original compositions–from new songs like ”Still Woman Enough” (which shares its title and attitude with her 2002 autobiography and was cowritten with her daughter, Patsy Lynn Russell) through fresh interpretations of classics including ”I’m a Honky Tonk Girl” (her first single, originally released March 1960), ”You Ain’t Woman Enough” (the title track for her first #1 Billboard Hot Country Album in 1966), ”My Love” (from 1968’s Here’s Loretta Lynn), ”I Wanna Be Free” (1971) and a deeply emotional ”Coal Miner’s Daughter Recitation,” commemorating the 50th anniversary of the release of her signature song (October 5, 1970) and album (January 4, 1971).
