One special release, on the Patuxent label from 2003, and a very hard-to-find one, by REECE SHIPLEY, « Tennessee Swing« . I think the CD is a self-produced one; it includes any of 1952 Shipley’s output on the Kingsport label: the original « Milk Bucket Boogie« , « Catfish Boogie » and « Hillbilly Jive With A Boogie Beat » – all infectious rhythm-rural hillbilly boogies; along with recent offerings (remaining tracks) by Shipley, very highly interesting Country bop. The CD comes with pictures, is played but once, is sold at € 25,00 (or $ 30,00). If interested, please holler me at: firstname.lastname@example.org. Thank you . Payment by Paypal. Contact me first.

Lee Lewis’ version), « Rock’n'Roll Grandpa », « Three Alley Cats », « Dirty Boogie », « Mule Boogie », all cut for Decca, Fortune, Hi-Q and Bullet. Hard-to-find CD, Sold at € 25,00 ($ 30,00).
ARKIE SHIBLEY, Hot Rod Race » on (NL) Collector 2856, all his Gilt-Edge/4 Star cuts (see his story in the site). 25 fabulous Country boogies and fast talking Blues from 1950-51, several instrumental tunes too. Sold at € 20,00 ($ 25,00). Contact me first at: email@example.com. Or by phone: (033) 628 34 12 04.

Then 3 (three) German Cattle albums by RAMBLIN’ TOMMY SCOTT. Fine, fine Hillbilly, from 1948 to the ’60s. All in all, a mere 60 tracks by a master. « Rockin’ And Rollin’ » (1951), « Juke Joint Girl » (1954), « »Ain’t Love Grand » (1952), « Tennessee » (1951), just a few tracks. Backing provided by Tommy Jackson (fiddle), Redd Stewart (Pee Wee King‘s front singer, here on fiddle), or Jerry Byrd (steel guitar). These albums were limited editions (up to 1000 copies), edited respectively in 1982, 1984 and 1989, and are outstandingly rare now. To the best of my knowledge, Scott has not been reissued in any way, just 2 tracks on the now-deleted Bear Family « A Shot In The Dark » boxset of 2002 (Bullet tracks). Which is a shame, as he was truly a master ahead of his time. All three albums have been played only once (just being transferred on my iMac), and come almost pristine. Each is sold at € 15,00 ($ 18,00) (the price I paid for them from a French dealer who kept them stocked for almost 30 years!). I also sell them as a lot for: € 40,00 ($ 45,00). Let me know if interested, so I can tell you postage costs. Here they are: A real rarity now on Crown (# 5321), « Country Music Stars« . Rare sides by AL TERRY (Hickory Cajun/Rockabilly artist) and JOHNNY TYLER (Rural Rhythm origin). Album from ’63, in very good shape, cover neither torn nor even faded. No skips, no scratches. Priced at € 20,00 ($ 23,00), it’s a bargain! A YORK BROTHERS issue on the Detroit Woodward (# 102) label from 1999. Sides from the ’40s on Universal and Mellow (label shown). Album only played once, almost pristine. € 23,00 ($ 25,00). Finally an old bootleg reissue of early JOHNNY HORTON 1949-1951 sides on Stetson 3033. Almost pristine. € 20,00 ($ 22,00).
More albums. Bob Wills, « Fiddle » on Country Music Foundation (1987): 20 instrumental tunes, an half previously unissued, from 1935 to 1941. A MUST for Wills fans. € 20, or $ 25.
A British compilation on the specialized Detour label of Hillbilly bop sides from the RCA-Victor label, « Hillbilly Hound Dawgs and Honky Tonk Angels » (33-008) (1989). The record is as new, and comes with the likes of Jack Turner (his own version of « Hound dog« ), Jack Tucker, Charline Arthur (2 tracks), Lee Bell, Eddie Marshall, Janis Martin, Wade Ray (2 tracks), Terry Fell, Curtis Gordon (2 tracks) and others.(€ 20, or $ 23)

Glen Glenn, « Rockabilly legend » on Swedish Sunjay 572, from 1987. A great, great album of Rockabilly and Rock-a-ballads, done in Glenn’s style, many songs unavailable elsewhere (TV live tunes, « Baby I Don’t Care » among others). A must for Rockabilly fans. € 25 or $ 30.
Then both German Cattle albums (# 29 and 30) of a very underrated honky tonk Houston artist, James O’Gwynn. All his output from 1956 to 1960 is here (Starday/Mercury/D), gathered in two albums. Excellent notes and sound. Both do sell for € 35, or $ 40.
Then Lonnie Glosson only album. He had tunes on the Rimrock label (’60s), and only reissued here on the Old Homestead label. Fine harmonica (train/baby imitations!). € 25 or $ 30.
