Last Kind Words: 1926-1953
The one that started it all – the first Mississippi compilation, in print again for the first time in over 7 years! Here we have some of the absolute best performances of country blues and ballads ever released. Early 78s that speak of the universal human condition in a profound way. Artists include Geechy Wiley, Blind Willie, Lottie Kimbrough, Memphis Minnie and many more. No typical blues riffs or boring standards here – just truly unique artists transcending time, space and culture to bring you a little piece of their souls.

Blind Owl Wilson
Blind Owl served as Canned Heat’s guitarist and would chip in a song here and there as a front man, producing hits such as “On the Road Again” and “Going Up the Country.” Here we have an LP of Blind Owl’s songs from Canned Heat’s records – left to sit alone and take you somewhere unexpected. Blind Owl’s personal vision quest can be heard throughout these songs. A true psychedelic masterpiece!

Tsege Mariam Gebru: Spielt Eigene Kompositionen
An unusual & stunning album. Tsege Mariam Gebru is an Ethiopian nun who has dedicated her life to helping others. She has been composing & playing music on the piano since the 1960’s. Her music is a unique mix of Western classical music in the vein of Erik Satie, Ethiopian music & Religious Christian meditation music. On this reissue of her first LP, originally released in Germany in a very small pressing, we find Tsege Mariam Gebru playing her own compositions solo on piano.

Ghost Memories: By Gene McKown- And Other Favorites
Pulled from a range of rare, indie-label 45s from the late 50s and early 60s, Ghost Memories is a haunting selection of singles from the rockabilly underground--a little bit rock, a little bit country, and just as haunting as the album title would have you believe. Tracks include "Walking The Streets After Dark" by Willie Hays, "Ghost Memories" by Gene McKown, "Fool Fool Fool" by Bill Whitley, "Cravin" by Bobby Roberts, "Sunset Blues" by Tony & Jackie Lamie, "Waiting For A Train" by Blankenship Brothers, and "Three Years" by Harold L & The Offbeats.


Boyd Rivers: You Can’t Make Me Doubt
The first full-length album by a little known Gospel great. With the exception of "Fire In My Bones," this is a collection of never-before-released material. Side A features Boyd as a dynamo on the electric guitar, with belting vocals for six hard-hitting tracks. Side B features six of Boyd's acoustic tracks, mellower but still full of unforgettable passion. For those unfamiliar with Boyd, comparisons could be made to the likes of Charlie Jackson, but in the end not too many people can make us feel like Boyd Rivers does.
