  • Southern, SSW, Americana, Countryfried Cheapies.

    I'm kinda of on a Southern Singer-Songwriter tip at the moment with a bit of Folky Yacht Rock thrown into the mixer and it's kind of hard to describe specifically but it's stuff like I've posted below. Heartfelt, maudlin, some horn action at times or completely acoustic. It's mainly American but can be UK but it's that Americana sound but not rockabilly more country rock.

    I'm buying blind on the whole looking at the year, instruments, song titles and amount of denim on the cover and having more hits than misses but I'm thinking specifically of things recorded around 69-73 but mainly it seems there is a golden period from 70-72 for what I'm digging.

    Anyone who has been on this sort of trip recommend any oddball records with that southern vibe can even be a Popular artist who decided to go all Nashville ala Bob Darin.

    Anyway stuff like this. :

    What about some Robin Lent. This is the title track and it's a great album overall.

        That 'Harmony Grits' is my favourite from that LP too. John Bryant is less than a fiver.

          Robin Lent doesn't fall into the cheap bracket

            Nope but I'll let him off as you can pick up a 'See For Miles' no doubt dubious (90's?) copy for about a tenner but yeah an OG defo a no go on my budget!

            Gah, cheers Shere, I had that John Bryant in my discogs cart a few weeks back to bulk out an order and went for something else instead, ticks all the boxes it seems.

              You should check out Jakarata Jive's old chart/thread - "Living in the Country" I think it was called. Pretty deep excavation of this sort of stuff with a ton of links and notes.

                Have you got the Corliss LP? Cheap.



                You can sometimes pick Stephen Whynott up cheap but, if you can't it's about twenty quid.

                  Two good calls mate that 'Stephen Whynott' track fills the brief exactly despite it's 77 vintage, looks like it will be a tricky bugger to track down at a good price mind.

                  Cheers for the heads up Tsundoku it's this one I think. : https://www.verygoodplus.co.uk/forum...in-the-country

                  Jakarta makes the good point in his opening post about good country/southern/Americana (whatever you want to categorise it as) is all about soul.

                    Stephen Whynott is ace and a big favourite of mine. It's a new discovery to me and a regular play. It was recommended either here or Waxi, I can't recall, as similar to 'songs from suicide bridge' and has a similar vibe in parts. His second LP Geography also has its moments, but harder to track down and not as cheap. I managed to pick up 'From Philly to Tablas' online for a couple of quid earlier this year so does crop up cheap from time to time.

                      Stuck the 'Stephen Whynott' in my discogs wants list which isn't very big so you never know and it will remind me to search for it from time to time elsewhere. On Hugh's thread there is some really cool stuff, some hugely expensive some less so. This fits the bill as does the rest of the album. :



                      and this score is brill. :

                        Yes, I've got that Hired Hand LP. There is a lot of good stuff on Scissor tail. I recommended this last year; you may have missed it or you may have seen it and and thought it was a load of old toss.

                          Very cool another avenue to venture down. I was bulking out an order on discogs last week and put this in based on nothing more than listening to a 2 second clip and the fact it was on 'Vertical Form'. It's from 2004 and the album is called 'Limited Storyline Guest' and it's the best thing I've heard in a while, love the production on it. This is the only track I can find on Youtube but it's one of the best tracks off the album if only for the random DUB intro.
