Hard For To Win And Can't Be WonI suppose it's not terribly difficult to play a guitar - to hold the thing in your arms, to move your hands across its body in all the prescribed and proven ways, to coax a little melody into being.
But what Nathan Salsburg - an acoustic guitarist and the curator of the Alan Lomax archive, a Pennsylvania-born Kentuckian who has logged good time in coastal Maine - does with his instrument is singular, nearly mystic: his are agile, engaging compositions, songs that feel desirous and questioning and vital, as if they weren't just channeled into being, but demanded revelation.
Nathan's 2011 solo debut, Affirmed, directly addressed a trio of thoroughbreds - Affirmed, Eight Belles, and Bold Ruler - which also made it at least in part about Salsburg's Kentucky: the land that sustained and nurtured those horses, the ancient traditions that anointed and sometimes undid them. Its follow-up, Hard For To Win and Can't Be Won, is also a record about place, although its landscapes are less specific. Some of them are memories, even: spaces that were real once, but have to be conjured now, willed to or from mind. Most of the album's songs are instrumental, save two re-workings of older material: "Coll Mackenzie," written and first performed by Archie Fisher, and "To Welcome the Travelers Home," a composite of two traditional nineteenth-century pieces; one sacred, one less so. Both songs concern homecomings, what it feels like to be enveloped by a place that you know will sustain you, will nurture what needs nurturing.
Musically, Nathan has emerged from a venerable tradition that includes Lena Hughes and Frank Hutchison, John Fahey and Ry Cooder. I'm reluctant to make too much of his virtuosity - and he is virtuosic, a staggering craftsman - because he is
also in the unique position of having that be the least interesting thing about his playing. There are moments in Nathan's pieces - these nimble rhythmic shifts, steps from one place to another - that make my knees quiver. Listening to him play, it's hard not to feel subsumed by gratitude.
I'm just as hesitant to frame his work as subversive, and yet - he is such a remarkably courageous writer and musician, and Hard For To Win and Can't Be Won is so matchless a document, so inimitable in its moves. This is the sort of record
that could change the course of your year. It certainly changed mine. - Amanda Petrusich1. First Field Path

ChangesAs their ninth and last album from their hit making 1966-1970 era, The Monkees Changes is one of their most collectable efforts fetching over $300 for a mint copy of the album. This highly regarded fan favorite was a treasure trove of songs providing the soundtrack to the final year of their Saturday afternoon television show, as it featured the double-sided hit single Oh My My and I Love You Better.
Micky Dolenz and Davy Jones first class musicianship excel throughout this 1970 session. They revisit the great Boyce and Hart with I Never Thought It Peculiar as well as Davy Jones rockin' delivery on 99 Pounds and the underrated Micky Dolenz performance Ticket On Ferry Ride.
Produced by the much acclaimed sixties producer/writer Jeff Barry (The Monkees, Neil Diamond, The Archies), Changes was the first full-fledged production by this Monkees collaborator as it showed the true pop genius of both the band and producer in the studio. Augmented with some very cool seventies writers Andy Kim (Rock Me Gently) and the late Bobby Bloom (Montego Bay), this later Monkees album truly was a grand farewell from this band until their unbelievable history making 1986 return.
Unavailable for many years on compact disc, The Monkees Changes is available once again from the original Colgems Records recordings and features three huge bonus tracks not on the original album, including the very rare and hard to find Bell Records 45 Do It In The Name Of Love , plus new liners from Monkees historian Joe Reagoso, as well as original artwork elements and rare picture sleeves and other memorbilla.
