Dr Ragtime & His Pals / S/t
This double-disc features a brand new album from Philadelphia guitarist Jack Rose along with his highly acclaimed and out-of-print self-titled record (originally a limited release on the Archive Recordings label). On Dr. Ragtime & Pals, Rose duets with Glenn Jones, Micah Smaldone, Mike Gangloff, Harmonica Dan, and Sean Bowles. This is a major work from a big player in the modern American Primitive world, often compared to the likes of John Fahey.
***BACK IN STOCK!!! Gifted San Francisco pop songwriter KELLEY STOLTZ returns with a cover of the 1980 Crocodiles album by British favorites ECHO AND THE BUNNYMEN. Leaving Echo’s flavorful pop behind in favor of a more garage rock approach, Stoltz brings a unique take on the album’s twelve classic songs.
