• 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 a CD that includes two bonus cuts not available on the LP!
