Stunning one-man band tunes from one of the United States’ great unsung artists. Rare and previously un-reissued tracks from Abner’s vast catalog of self-released recordings, showcasing some of his more haunting and powerful vocal performances. A truly independent musician who performed at swap meets and fairs out of his custom converted trailer, Abner Jay traveled the United States from the 1930s until his passing in 1993. Told with his characteristic blend of humor and pathos, “I Don’t Have Time To Lie To You” is an unsparing take on the country Abner Jay knew so well. Licensed from Brandie Records and Abner’s family, 160g black vinyl comes in heavy old-style tip-on jacket.
