Allen, Terry - Juarez Juarez
Pop Used - LP 001 Landfall
Stunning 1975 Original Still In Shrink Wrap. "Terry Allen Is, First And Foremost, A Visual Artist. He Just Happens To Make Brilliant, Idiosyncratic Albums On The Side. In Fact, His First Album, 1975's Juarez, Wasn't Even Initially Conceived As An Album, But As A Set Of Songs Recorded To Accompany An Artwork Installation. The Album's World Is An Elliptical Place Where Motivations And Desires Are Often Shadowy To The Point Of Inscrutability, But The Characterizations Are Almost Three-Dimensional. The Story Of Two Couples On A Drinking Spree That Turns Into A Murderous Chase Through The Southern California Desert, Juarez Is A Tough-As-Nails Narrative With The Deadpan, Biting Humor Of Crime Fiction Writers Like Jim Thompson Or Chester Himes. The Album Was Recorded Quickly And On A Low Budget, So The Musical Settings Are Ultra-Spare, With Allen's Whiskey-Cured Vocals And Thumping Piano Often The Only Musical Elements. As A Concept Album, The Individual Songs Don't Work As Well Out Of Context, But Listened To As A Whole, Juarez Is One Of The More Fascinating Country Albums Of Its Time, Like Willie Nelson's Red Headed Stranger As Re-Imagined By Quentin Tarantino."

Allen, Terry - Lubbock (On Everything) Lubbock (On Everything)
Pop Used - LP 33991 Fate
Beautiful 1979 2LP Gatefold Original In Shrink Wrap. Both LPs Appear Glossy, Unplayed. "Although It's All But Unknown Outside Of A Devoted Cult Following, Terry Allen's Second Album, 1979's Lubbock (On Everything), Is One Of The Finest Country Albums Of All Time, A Progenitor Of What Would Eventually Be Called Alt-Country. This Is Country Music With A Wink And A Dry-As-West-Texas-Dust Sense Of Humor, But At Heart, Lubbock (On Everything) Is A Thoughtful Meditation On Allen's Hometown. Recorded In Lubbock After Allen Hadn't Lived There For Close To A Decade With A Small Group Headed By Local Legends Don Caldwell And Lloyd Maines, The Songs Alternate Between Biting Character Studies Like "Lubbock Woman" And "The Great Joe Bob (A Regional Tragedy)," About A High School Football Star Who Ends Up Robbing A Liquor Store, And More Loving Tributes Like "The Thirty Years War" And "The Wolfman Of Del Rio." Salted Through Are A Handful Of Songs About The Pretensions Of The Art World (Something Allen Knows Well In His Day Job As A Sculptor And Painter) That Help Keep The Album's More Cutting Lines From Sounding Mean-Spirited. A 20-Song Masterpiece, Lubbock (On Everything) Is Essential Listening For Anyone With An Interest In The Outer Fringes Of Country Music." Stewart Mason, AMG.... more details
