It was the realer-than-life Japhy of my dreams, and he stood there saying nothing. “Go away, thieves of the mind!” he cried down the hollows of the unbelievable Cascades.

Problems don’t always get solved. Sometimes they get replaced by more pressing issues and become a part of the edifice.

This is a rare cut of Ralph Stanley and the Clinch Mountain Boys from 1974.    This live concert audio was released on the small record label - Jessup Records.  There is plenty of stage noise and some wind in the microphones, but you’ll still get a little enjoyment out of this one.

01 - Will You Miss Me - Ralph Stanley
02 - I’ll Talk It Over With Him - The Tenn. Valley Boys
03 - I’ll Fly Away - Jim & Jennie Hall
04 - Old Joe Clark - Roy McGinnis & The Sunnysiders
05 - As Long As The Wind Blows - The Kentucky Gentlemen
06 - Kicking Mule - Lee Allen & The Dew Mountain Boys with Lennie Centers
07 - Jealous Heart - Lee Allen & The Dew Mountain Boys
08 - Katey Daley - Ralph Stanley
09 - Bugle Call Rag - Larry Sparks & the Lonesome Ramblers
10 - Are You Living Right - Lawrence Lane & The Kentucky Grass
11 - Roll On Buddy - The Midland County Chicken String Band
12 - Orange Blossom Special - Charlie Moore & The Dixie Partners

I did not convert this one but found it on the net - Just passing it on to the bluegrass fans.

Country Funk Vol II: 1967-1974

waterloosunsetmusic:

The second serving of Country Funk (via Light In The Attic) doesn’t pick up where the last one left off so much as dig a little deeper into the made-up genre. Co-producer Zach Cowie first started collecting these gems as a DJ and hip-hop enthusiast, entranced by the bridge between funky, closely-recorded drum breaks and old-fashioned picking.

This time around, Country Funk puts some focus on the weirder detours made by some of country’s biggest stars: Townes Van Zandt’s bizarre, Morricone-esque psych wallop “Hunger Child Blues”; Dolly Parton getting down on “Getting Happy”; Kenny Rogers’ (yes, that Kenny Rogers) lascivious “Tulsa Turnaround”; Willie’s progressive country call-to-arms “Shotgun Willie.” Doug Dillard and former Byrd Gene Clark even bring a stunning soulfulness to the Beatles’ “Don’t Let Me Down” that does the rare feat of reshading the original. 

The lesser-known artists don’t fare as well on Vol. II, but that’s a minor quibble considering the overall good-times vibe. Across the country, a diverse group of artists both old and new were remixing various strains of American music, all in relative isolation from one another. Taking a macro view, this seems like a fruitful byproduct of the era’s cultural permissiveness—longhairs and rednecks, black and white finding a new way forward.

Speaking with Cowie for KUTX in Austin, he mentioned how he merely wanted to create a party record, something to put on and be enjoyed by a group of friends with a few beers. More than that, Vol. II is a wonderful historical oddity that proves the used bins aren’t quite used up yet. And if you want a party? Willis Alan Ramsey’s 1972 masterpiece "Northeast Texas Women" brings the roof down at the very end.
