Lurrie Bell - Cuttin' Heads on Isabel

This is the long-lost Vypyr CD reissued.  To me, this is the best thing
Lurrie has recorded.  Sadly, it was produced by a guy with little money
and no distribution and was nearly impossible to find even during the
time it was available.  I remember reading enthusiastic reviews and then
looking everywhere for a copy.  I think the Vypyr version came out 3-4
years ago.  In an interview I did with Bob Koester a few years ago, he
mentioned that he wanted to record Lurrie again but Vypyr had an
exclusive contract for recording which made it impossible for him to
record for another label.  I highly recommend this disc but $47 is kind
of steep.  Most likely, Isabel has no distribution rights in the US so
it may be hard to find here even if it is still available.
