Leo "Machine Gun" Kottke became famous for his demonically fast, propulsively rocking, and perhaps divinely inspired guitar playing. Sidelined in the early '80s with hand problems related to his strenuous style, he offers up a quieter, more reflective side in A SHOUT TOWARDS NOON.
Price $4.99

Leo Kottke ~ GREAT BIG BOY

Offering the used Private Music 82087 CASSETTE tape shown in the photo. Track listing 1. Running Up the Stairs 2. Other Day, The (Near Santa Cruz) 3. Great Big Boy 4. Driver 5. Pepe Hush 6. Big Mob on the Hill 7. Ice Cream 8. Nothin' Works 9. Summer's Growing Old 10. I Still Miss Someone
"GREAT BIG BOY features Leo Kottke's excellent guitar work as usual, but it also features his singing, or in some cases talking, on each of the 10 tracks. Kottke fans shouldn't be scared off by this--GREAT BIG BOY makes the strongest case yet for Kottke's songwriting and expressive vocals. What he expresses in each of these slightly cryptic songs is a peeved resignation and mournful grumpiness that's actually quite endearing."

Breakfast in the Field 7. Riki's Shuffle 8. Woman of the World 9. Double Planet, The 10. Funky Avacado, The 11. Come Together 12. Two Old Days
"Michael Hedges's self-proclaimed "heavy mental" music is nicely represented on this collection of live performances. Hedges plays three covers here: Dylan's "All Along the Watchtower," Prince's "A Love Bizarre," and the Beatles' "Come Together," giving each the distinctive stamp of his guitar wizardry. But most of LIVE ON THE DOUBLE PLANET consists of Hedges's own compositions, which show off his impressive multi-tasking style (he often sounds like several guitarists playing at once) and his use of the composite harp-guitar instrument. "

David Grisman Quintet is a self-styled alternative bluegrass/ acoustic jazz band founded by David Grisman in 1975 in San Francisco, California, USA. Following the Bill Monroe's bluegrass legacy and Django Reinhard's 30s swing, the David Grisman Quintet comes with entirely new style to the acoustic music.[1] With various lineups from 1975, which, among others included guitar virtuoso Tony Rice, multiinstrumentalists Mark O'Connor, Mike Marshall, Darol Anger and featured guests as violin genius Stephane Grapelli, this band continues to produce music as of 2009 with the same ιlan as in 1975.

Offering the used Maranatha Music SPCN-7-100-13984-8 CASSETTE tape shown in the photo. Track listing 1. I'll Be No Stranger There 2. River of Jordan 3.

Boat of Love 10. Where Could I Go 11. Men Are So Busy 12. On the Sea of Life 13. I'm Using My Bible for a Roadmap 14. Panhandle Rag [Instrumental]
Many years ago Maranatha Music released this gem of a project featuring a veritable hall of fame supergroup of musicians whose pedigree lines included the byrds, the eagles, the flying burrito brothers, bob dylan's rolling thunder review, souther-hillman-furay band, stephen stills' manassas etc.It wasn't a country rock project though but rather an affectionate nod to traditional bluegrass, performed with great affection. It was so well done that it made me into a fan. This should be in any country rock or folk buffs collection. Standout tracks are "I'm using my bible for a roadmap" and "Don't let them take the Bible out of our school rooms". "Boat of love" has some of the most exquisite vocal harmonies and all the musicians, especially Al Perkins and David Mansfield play with carefree but virtuotistic flair. IF you love the Desert Rose Band, as I do you'll love to hear Chris Hillman sing pure bluegrass - its wonderful!!

HARD TIMES ~ Red Clay Ramblers

Offering the used Flying Fish FF-90246 CASSETTE tape shown in the photo.

From the first notes of their 1981 landmark release Hard Times' opening track "Chesapeake Bay," it's clear the Red Clay Ramblers were not your average old time music ensemble. Dixieland horns, barrelhouse piano, barbershop harmonies and driving stringband rhythms all combine for an entertaining crash course in American music. Whether sublime ("Wind and Rain") or downright ridiculous ("Chicken"), the Red Clay Ramblers bring their virtuosity, intensity and enthusiasm to every song they play. (Originally released by Flying Fish Records in 1981)
