Now that Googs has gone to the great thrift shop in the sky it was my turn to inspect the cut out bins.
We lack thrift shops here.

So, for practically no money:

Hardly Yves.

Looks like a good haul. Especially the Calexico.

Okay, gang, let's see if you can un-hate my latest accord score. accord is NOT a thrift shop, but still 2nd hand cheapish. Rarities to be found if you browse the lot.

dolly parton - coat of many colors
johnny cash - out among the stars
the best of mountain
danny o'keefe - breezy stories (big discovery for me, only knew "Good Time Charlie's got the Blues")
bobby womack - greatest hits (capitol)
mountain - avalanche
jerry reed - guitar man (camden)
ella fitzgerald - ella swings lightly
pointer sisters - break out
dolly parton - 9 to 5 and odd jobs
solomon burke - proud mary
johnny guitar watson - what the hell is this?

so, danny o'keefe, then - breezy singer songwriter in the al stewart vein, with a few rnr pastiches thrown in for good measure
i'd prefer if he had kept it all breezy, but guy's gotta rock
1966 and all that

At the right price I'd consider buying any of those with the exception of the Dolly Parton ones. Her voice annoys me. And I'd leap at the Solomon Burke, Jerry Reed, Johnny "Guitar" Watson, Mountain and Bobby Womack even at a not quite right price, depending upon the format of course.

all cd, superior to, and in most cases, cheaper than vinyl

I'd only heard "Guitar Man" by Elvis, nice to get the original, but Jerry Reed is very much a covers guy.

You then haven't heard any original vinyl played on a good turntable. I suspect you would find it a revelation. And not just vinyl. There was once a sign up at Peter Dunn's Vinyl Museum in Toronto "Eight tracks! They're better than CDs."

I enjoyed this exhumed/lost album a lot. If I Told You Who It Was is an annoying novelty dud, typical of mid-89's Billy Sherrill productions, and the Elvis Costello remix track at the end did nothing for me. But that still leaves a solid 11-song album.

The thing that bugs/intrigues me is that it doesn't sound like a Billy Sherrill production from that period. John Carter Cash and Steve Berkowitz shepherded a LOT of tinkering and overdubbing methinks. I really wish they'd issued the original shelved album and the rejigged versions side-by-side for comparison.

But as far as his son is concerned, it's all about dad's voice. Which is understandable.

I think TG and others are being unfair to John Coan. He has an agenda, he knows what he wants.

Here's John (on the left) at a recent gathering of another social group he's taken-over and now leads:

at least half are country/rnr covers. But I may explore further.

I'd have picked up a lot of these myself, at least for a quick inspection to see what's what.

dolly parton - coat of many colors - Like her but just would never play it.
johnny cash - out among the stars - I'd buy almost anything Cash that I didn't already own.
the best of mountain - This one for sure. I only know a few songs by them.
danny o'keefe - breezy stories (big discovery for me, only knew "Good Time Charlie's got the Blues") - Never.
bobby womack - greatest hits (capitol) - I imagine this one is superb.
mountain - avalanche - This one for sure. I only know a few songs by them.
jerry reed - guitar man (camden) - Camden label is usually second rate material poorly pressed onto vinyl. Don't know how they do with CDs but I'd likely pass.
ella fitzgerald - ella swings lightly - Own some Ella and never really play it. I would have passed.
pointer sisters - break out - A singles band. I'd pass on anything but a Hits CD.
dolly parton - 9 to 5 and odd jobs - Like her but just would never play it.
solomon burke - proud mary - Definitely worth a look.
johnny guitar watson - what the hell is this? - This would almost certainly be picked up and taken home.

I have to agree with the Camden assessment and the Ella one isn't exactly one of her best, but ya never know until you listen to it, I suppose.

Camden is also RCA/BMG's midprice heritage line, annotated, good sound, good pick of artists.

Thrift find of the day:

Roachford - Permanent Shade of Blue (epic, 1994)

Wow! Incredible stuff, nine tracks in, and it is all jaw-droppingly good. Highlight: "Emergency".

Right up there with your John Legend, Raphael Saadiq, D'Angelo, etc.

That's a good CD reissue with some post-LP singles added-on. He was probably down on his luck after being dropped by Atlantic, but his final years with that label hadn't been too successful either. I like Proud Mary a lot.
