Travis Wammack - Not For Sale (1975)



When I first learned about these blogs, I was thrilled by the idea that I would finally get a chance to listen to all those long sought after albums that I never found. And I did find some gems. But then I figured it was time to make some contribution of my own.
The first album I ripped, that I was pleased with the result, was Not For Sale by Travis Wammack. Originally released in 1975 on the Capricorn label, this is one of my all-time favorite southern rock albums.
Travis is known to most by his instrumentals in the 60's. But if you like your southern rock mixed up with some funked up soul, this is definitely for you. Check out Travis on his second solo album. And the title rings true: "Not For Sale"...
Get it here...

Hey Harley, nice offering! I pulled out "Not for Sale" a few weeks ago and couldn't even remember Wammack, so I was blown away when I put it on. I kept thinking, how did I forget about something as funky as this? In any case I was going to rip the LP myself, so I was glad to find your offering - you saved me the time. I found your name in the comments of the mp3 ID tag, which how I found your blog - so you might want to put your blog URL in the comments for future offerings. BTW - I have offerings as well that you can download direct (most offerings) and ad-free at BasementRug.com.

Be sure to check out the other Wammack posts as well. It was actually this album that started me ripping albums and eventually blogging. This is one of the best Southern Rock albums ever. Period.
See you at BasementRug.

My story is exactly the same as Basement Rug, apart from ripping it and finding your site. Very nice to Hear Young Travis again. Paul

Thanks! I missed this one the first time around. I didn't know anyone had recorded "Love Rustler" besides Delbert McClinton. Good stuff!
