2 - HURLEY, MICHAEL - BACK HOME WITH DRIFTIN' WOODS - (LP) 
MISSISSIPPI


Unbelievably great Hurley recordings from 1964....never before heard. Recorded by Fred Ramsey as part of the same sessions that resulted in Michael's "First Songs" LP on Folkways. Side A starts with "What'll You Say, What'll You Do", a pretty psychedelic classic that can very well put you into some kinda trance. After that we hear "The Blues Comes Around" - a sad drifty little tune, then "Little Girl On Roller Skates" with a rare Hurley harmonica solo & hallicinatory lyrics worthy of some examination & then a beautiful alternate take on one of Michael's all time greats - "The Tea Song". Side B starts up with yet more alternate takes of songs from the Folkways LP - this time of "Intersolar blues" & "I Like My Wine". After that we get to hear two great compositions for the first time, & man oh man are they pretty - "Hey Hey Hey Hey" & "I Love You Babe". Real great stuff all around that we recommend for deep into it Hurley fans & newcomers to his art alike. Michael Hurley is a great American song writer with his own unique way of seeing the world & this LP is a great testament to his vision. Faux Folkways wraparound cover with liner note insert by Hurley himself. Co-release with Nero's Neptune.

3 - HURLEY, MICHAEL - BAD MR. MIKE - (LP)

4 - HURLEY, MICHAEL - BLUE HILLS - (LP) 
MISSISSIPPI


Reissue of this classic from 2010. On this LP we find Hurley stretching out on six longer than usual compositions that are heartbreaking and beautiful as anything he's ever done. Side one features Hurley on a creaky pump organ. Side two starts out with two newer compositions - just Michael on guitar and vocals. The record ends with a stunning version of 'Tea Song' (which Michael originally wrote and recorded way back in 1963). A sustained feeling of loss and need for redemption haunts this record.

5 - HURLEY, MICHAEL - FATBOY SPRING - (LP) 
MISSISSIPPI


A full LP of never before released Hurley recordings from 1972-73! Great early versions of classic Hurley songs such as Automatic Slim & the fatboys, Drivin' Wheel, Ghost woman Blues, Watchin' the Show & The Portland Water. Hurley is backed up by "The Fatboys" - not the rotund hip hop crew from the film "Disorderlies" but rather a bunch of not so fat nice guys in Vermont who played mostly for the local dairy farmers. (Later they were known as "Sheriff Mocus & the Deranged Cowboys"). A laid back countryish album sure to please the hardcore Hurley fan & casual listener too. Deep & breezy. Cover painting by Michael. A co-release with our friends label in San Francisco - Secret Seven.

6 - HURLEY, MICHAEL - FIRST SONGS - (LP)

7 - HURLEY, MICHAEL - HI FI SNOCK UPTOWN - (CD) 
FUTURE DAYS


Michael Hurley is a singularly unusual singer, guitarist and artist. Following our recent re-issues of Hurleys three albums for Rounder Records, we are now set to revisit some of Hurleys earliest solo works: 1971s Armchair Boogie and Hi Fi Snock Uptown. Featuring 14 twisted songs produced by "Banana" and Joe Bauer, Hi Fi Snock Uptown saw Hurley amplifying some ofArmchair Boogies willfully esoteric qualities and delivering an album that explores the full range of his sound, from blues to country and folk to playful sounds - like his crow impressions on Old Black Crow. As Twilight Zone neatly puts it, "everything is weird". It also features some of his most loved songs such as Water Train, Eyes, Eyes and the gorgeous traveling track Blue Driver.

TRACKLISTING: 01. Blue Driver 02. Water Train 03. Sun Is Slowley Sinkin' 04. Old Black Crow 05. Twilight Zone 06. 'm Worrie, I'm Worried 07. In Florida 08. Mr Whiskerwits 09. Lily Pads 10. Eyes 11. Girl I Love You 12. Ungle Bobs Corner 13. Rat Face 14. Trinidad

8 - HURLEY, MICHAEL - LAND OF LO FI - (LP) 
MISSISSIPPI


Though Michael Hurley needs no further introduction, and in spite of a discography comprising many highly regarded albums, this 2013 batch of home recordings includes some of his best songs ever! Hurley plays heart breakers solo with guitar and/or organ accompaniment, along with three tracks in which he is joined by the beautiful voice of Jolie Holland. Some of the most incredible songs here are the eerie 'Alligator In The Water', the poignant and all too true 'Disaster At The Wheel', the utterly cosmic 'Corridor', the almost avant garde 'Doin' The Opossum' and the stone cold intense 'You Got To Die'. True geniuses are hard to come by, so give this record a long hard listen.

9 - HURLEY, MICHAEL - WILDEGEESES/WEST VIRGINIA - (7") 
MISSISSIPPI


1993 recording of one of Michael's greatest songs of all time. Unreleased version featuring just Michael & his guitar.
