How is this classic album out of print and unavailable digitally?! One of Dolly's all-time best!! Includes the hit title track, "Sacred Memories," and "Highway Headin' South." Essential listening and a favorite among country fans.

Waylon Jennings, “Music Man”
(RCA AHL1-3602, released May 1980)

One of the latter-day classics of Waylon’s RCA catalog. The highlight is, of course, the beloved “Theme From The Dukes Of Hazzard,” but this is truly outstanding Waylon; other high points are a version of wife Jessi Colter’s “Storms Never Last” and Steely Dan’s “Do It Again.”

Track Listing:

It’s Alright
Theme From The Dukes Of Hazzard
Nashville Wimmen
Do It Again
Sweet Music Man
Storms Never Last
He Went To Paris
What About You
Waltz Across Texas

The Spirit Of Atlanta, “The Burning Of Atlanta”
(Buddah 5135, released 1973)

Even if this wasn’t a smokin’ hot slab of mid-70s funk, you should own this just to have the cover viewable on your mobile device. This 1973 release features backbeats aplenty and some of the most amazing funk bass playing you’ll ever hear: among the many highlights is “Freddie’s Alive And Well,” a pointed response to Curtis Mayfield’s “Superfly” anthem “Freddie’s Dead.”

Track Listing:

Hunter Street
Buttermilk Bottom
Peachtree Street
Auburn Avenue Vine City
Freddie’s Alive And Well
Messin’ Around

Ram Jam, “Ram Jam” (
Epic PE 34885, released August 1977)

The “Black Betty” album. That stone classic rock track was created by Ram Jam, a band with some amazing NYC rock credentials: bassist Howie Blauvelt was in the Hassles with Billy Joel, and guitarist Bill Bartlett was the leader of bubblegumsters The Lemon Pipers. This album was produced, in fact, by Buddah impresarios Kasenetz & Katz; this rare full-length is the definition of radio-friendly 70s hard rock.

Track Listing:

Black Betty
Let It All Out
Keep Your Hands On The Wheel
Right On The Money
All For The Love Of Rock N’ Roll
High Steppin’
Hey Boogie Woman
Too Bad On Your Birthday
