This is one of the most recent Mississippi Records releases. A four track 7" recorded between Michael Hurley and Betsy Nichols. Can't find any more copies of this anywhere - Dusty Groove are all out, as are Honest Jons.

Really nice folk duets starting with a minute long a capella of 'Jocko's Lament'.
Michael Hurley's LPs are still available from Honest Jons, Norman Records, Aquarius Records and Volcanic Tongue - no doubt elsewhere.
Not 100% on this one, but let me believe that it is the same Betsy Nichols that can occasionally be heard on the excellent WFMU.
With only four tracks to sort out I have taken the effort to split them into separate files, all at the usual 320kbps mp3.
A1. Jocko's Lament
A2. River In The Rain
B1. Don't Let Me Down
Have a Merry Christmas (or whatever else you may be celebrating)
I'll be back between Christmas and New Year to put something else up, finally get around to the bulk email writing (really sorry about that) and try to conjure up some kind of end of year list. Maybe. Seen so many posts the last few days containing nothing but albums I hadn't even known about so feel there will be some catching up to do in 2010.
