||There's A Light |
Griffith's first album, recorded live, without overdubs, and originally released on a tiny independent label in '78, shows an artist already fully formed; in fact, her folk and country influences are just about evenly displayed. Her plaintive, girlish voice takes ...
||Once In A Very Blue |
Griffith's third album marks the spot where her story, as they say, began to get really interesting; it's chock full of first-rate folk- and country-tinged songs (mostly her own, although she gets a lot of mileage out of folk veteran ...
||Revisited (1999) |
Griffith's name doesn't exactly spring to mind when you think of disco divas. The Texan singer/songwriter is known for her pure, tremulous voice and finely crafted songs-not for belting out dance anthems. That's why it's hard to imagine the twisted ...

License to Chill (2004) Top Seller

||Robert Earl Keen, Jr.|

Don Mclean: American Troubadour (2012)
Calling this collection of Don McLean's signature songs American Troubadour seems more than apt, since McLean's left-field 1971 hit, "American Pie," was a surreal song that captured rock & roll, cars, America, us, them, seemingly everything at once, into a ...
Chieftains Celebration (1989)
"Millennium Celtic Suite" was composed to celebrate Dublin's 1,000 years. This track includes music from various Celtic countries.

Best of Frances Black (2003)

Rock 'N' Roll Heart (2002)
Those that take titles too literally may say that Ian Gomm's eighth album, Rock 'N' Roll Heart, doesn't rock all that at hard, at least according the traditional, four-on-the-floor definition of the term. They could argue that point, but they'd ...
Get It Right (2002)

Just in Time (1988)
Former lead singer of the traditionalist Irish folk band De Danann, Maura O'Connell never quite fit in the constraints of pure Celtic folk music. Even on this, her solo debut and most recognizably Celtic album, O'Connell expands her musical horizons ...

This Town (1993)
A folk/rock/pop effort that sometimes detours into pop-country, This Town showed Dave Mallet to be a thoughtful and expressive storyteller. Mallet was also an obscure storyteller -- this little known CD wasn't a huge seller by any means. But those ...
Airdream Believer (1995)
