Rare and unissued Pacific Northwest rootsy Americana!
• A barnful of unearthed reels from Salem Oregon’s Garland Records!
• Rare and unissued Pacific Northwest rootsy Americana!
Though more known for their contributions to the psych and garage side of the spectrum, Salem Oregon’s Garland Records also picked & plucked out some unique takes on country charters and unmatched originals in the late 60s and early 70s. Archived here is a barn load of true Americana, from unheard originals like Cascade Sweethearts’ “Hard Workin’ Woman” to stunning takes on Bob Dylan & Kris Kristofferson cuts. This is a PNW platter that you’d swear came from south of the Mason Dixon.
Replete with the sound of steel guitar, classic honky-tonk piano, and varying vocal stylings, Snuff Box is a journey through the rustic sound of the PNW featuring 5 cuts making their debut since being put to tape! While the Salem, Oregon area didn't have a huge sixties and seventies country scene, Gary Nieland recorded some great material.
True to form for BeatRocket’s Garland Records collections is the abundance of previously unissued material, signature covers, and two bonus cuts not available on the LP!
