Surprise (we're back)!
We're still carrying just about the entire catalog from the superb Canadian singer-songwriter Shari Ulrich & most of her related CD's & LP's. We've finally got her most recent 2014 cd Everywhere I Go, which I really like; & we have restocked on both of The Hometown Band cd's. And best of all, all 3 are autographed!
We also have restocked on the 1st 2 Pied Pumkin Vinyl Record Albums; though due to the high cost of postage from Canada to the USA, Shari will be directly fulfilling orders placed through us for those 2 items.
Shipping for those 2 LP's will be higher than usual for Americans & a bit lower than usual for Canadians: $12.50 USD for 1 or 2 LP's to either the USA or Canada
Everything else is the usual $4.00 1st pound & $1 each additional pound within the USA.

Here's a list of everything Shari that we currently have available:
Exclusive Authorized CDR's:
*** Shari Ulrich - Long Nights - Authorized Burned CDR - One of the great unheard albums of all time. Never released in the US, this was a bit of a hit in Canada. Shari's career started with the folky Pied Pumpkin, moved to the funky Hometown Band & then released this killer rock album in the early 80's. A very loose comparison could be made to Stevie Nicks/Fleetwood Mac, except Shari's voice is much better. She's also an accomplished violin player. Includes the Canadian hit single Bad bad Girl, + Long Nights, Chameleon, Mysterious Child & more. To the best of my knowledge it's never been released on cd. If you wish, we can add an autographed label to the cdr. $9.99 (unlimited quantities)
*** Shari Ulrich - One Step Ahead - Authorized Burned CDR - Please note this is a burned cdr. it is out of print on LP, & has never been released as a cd. This is Shari's 2nd solo album from 1981. If you wish, we can add an autographed label to the cdr. $9.99 (unlimited quantities)
*** Shari Ulrich - Talk Around Town - Authorized Burned CDR - Shari's third solo album from 1982 has never been released on cd. This record was a bit of a change for Shari. After the folk of Pied Pumpkin & Funk Jazz of The Hometown Band her first 2 solo albums had somewhat of a Fleetwood Mac type pop groove. On Talk Around Town she merged her previous styles with what was a more contemporary (in 1982) New Wave sound. The standout tracks which stand alongside her best work ever are The One & Only, & I'm Not The One.Oother highlights include You're Making Me Nervous, With or Without You & You're Not So Innocent. I listened to Shari's music constantly in the late 70's & 80's & always felt she would have been really successful if either MCA or A&M would have put some effort into promoting her records. This is her only solo USA release. Produced by Claire Lawrence from the Hometown Band. Highly recommended! If you wish, we can add an autographed label to the cdr. $9.99 (unlimited quantities)
*** Hometown Band - "Hometown Band" New Autographed Canada Only CD Please note that while brand new & unplayed, it is not in cellophane as Shari had to open the cd to autograph it. We are offering this on consignment from Shari, & are 1 of only 2 USA retailers authorized to sell the physical cd at this time. Originally formed by former Chilliwack sax & keyboard player Claire Lawrence as a backing band for Canadian folk singer Valdy, the Hometown Band with Shari Ulrich released 2 fine albums in a jazz, funk style which have never before been issued on cd. Their second & final release from 1977 with Sweet Emma, Let The Music Play & more. More funk & less jazz then Flying. Esther Canada 75080. $14.99 (5)
*** Hometown Band - "Flying" New Autographed Canada Only CD - Please note that while brand new & unplayed, it is not in cellophane as Shari had to open the cd to autograph it. We are offering this on consignment from Shari, & are 1 of only 2 USA retailers authorized to sell the physical cd at this time. Originally formed by former Chilliwack sax & keyboard player Claire Lawrence as a backing band for Canadian folk singer Valdy, the Hometown Band with Shari Ulrich released 2 fine albums in a jazz, funk style which have never before been issued on cd. Their superb debut features Shari's beloved title track, the great instrumental Spread 'em All Around, & Into The Night, which I've always said I would want played at my wedding if I ever got married. Esther Canada 75079. $14.99 (5)
*** Pied Pumkin - Pied Alive - New Sealed CD - Very nice live recording from their 2000 reunion tour. Includes both new & old songs: Lotus Eaters Blues, Orvillle Goes To The Country, War Is Over Overture, Cuckoo & more. Recommended. Squash Canada 01952. $14.99 (3)
*** Pied Pear - Collector Edition 2011 (Sealed Canada Issue) - Important: there is a flaw in the entire press run: track #7 "Salt My Song" stops at aprox 3:51. At this time, there are no plans to correct the mastering error & repress. This includes the (almost) complete 1977-79 2 post Shari Ulrich albums where Rick & Joe continued on as a duo: Pied Who, Pear What & the very hard to find The Pear Of Pied Pumkin. 18 songs, very limited edition! We are selling this on consignment direct from Rick & Joe. MAPL 14202. $20.00 (4)
*** Pied Pumkin - Pumkids (Sealed Canada issue) - Longtime Folkies & Dandylion Favorites Shari Ulrich, Rick Scott & Joe Mock released their first children's cd last year! Makes sense as kids have often had their own section at Pumkin shows & Rick Scott has done children's solo albums in the past. Enjoyable cd pretty much sounds like a regular Pumkin cd's with sillier then usual lyrics & a some of the vocals are intentionally funny sounding for kids. Recommended for kids under 10 or 11 & over 40! BTW, we continue to offer the other 2 Pumkin cd's, all of their out of print vinyl LP's, the 2 Hometown Band albums on authorized cdr & all of Shari Ulrich's solo cd's. I believe we are the only US distributor for the Hometown Band cdr's, & possibly the only one for the Pumkin vinyl LP's. Factor Canada 10142. $14.99 (5)
or new but not sealed $14.99
*** Pied Pumkin - The Lost Squash Tapes - (New Sealed CASSETTE TAPE) - Extremely limited; this was never issued on cd or LP! We got them direct from the band. These songs are exclusive to this release!!! Squash 1976. $9.99 (5)

*** Shari Ulrich - The Best Of - New Canada CD - For those who don't do vinyl & can't play Shari's great 80's albums this collection of her A&M material is absolutely essential! Tremendous collection includes the Canadian hit Bad Bad Girl, The One & Only, Long Nights, Mysterious Child, With Or Without You, I'm Not The One & more. If you only purchase 2 cd's this week, I'd highly suggest choosing this one & the Pied Pumkin with Shari Best of we're also offering; to me both are absolutely essential music!! We have 3: 1 is sealed with no autograph, one has an autograph & torn cellophane, & 1 is new but not sealed & autographed. Esther Canada 627. $14.99 (3)

*** Shari Ulrich - Find Our Way (Sealed Canada issue) - Shari's latest done in collaboration with her adult daughter Julia. IMO, this is probably her best sent her great 80's releases! Shari produced this one herself; much of it was done at her home studio. Good stuff. other then CD Baby, I believe we are the only US retailer offering this release. Esther Canada 00724. $15.99 (3)
*** Shari Ulrich - Everywhere I Go (Mostly sealed Autographed Canada only cd) - Shari's most recent from 2014 is also one of my favorites. Also features her daughter who plays on it, mixed it & co produced it. Very nice music; all new songs somewhat on the folky side. Borealis Canada 12282. $14.99 (2)
Pied Pumkin/Pear - Featuring Shari Ulrich on violin & vocals, Rick Scott on dulcimer, vocals & much of the song writing & Joe Mock on guitar, vocals & song writing, The Pumpkin would have been right at home in 1960's San Francisco. Instead, they came at the the tail end of the Canadian progressive folk movement that also brought artists like Ian Tamblyn, Bruce Cockburn & David Wiffen. They combined a bit of the San Francisco hippy ethic & The UK silly folk ethic (Fairport Convention & friends) with some great song writing & playing (Shari is pretty much a virtuoso on violin), & a wonderful sense of humor. Throw in some tremendous harmonies and finally, add to that Rick's unique musical persona which could perhaps be described as being a bit similar to the Tubes Fee Waybill without Fee's dark side. What I can tell you is all 4 of their albums (especially the first 2 with Shari) were on my stereo constantly in the late 70's - mid 80's. If you're into well played, touching acoustic music with an innocence & great sense of humor, these all come highly recommended. We are currently offering all 4 Pied Pumpkin / Pied Pear albums; & Shari's first & third solo album. None of these have ever been on cd.
*** Pied Pumkin - String Ensemble - New Sealed Vinyl LP - Feel free to ask for an autographed copy! Recorded live at Simon Fraser University, it's possibly their best. The highlights include I Believe, Orville Goes To The Country, People I Love You, You Can Change The World & more. Long out of print, we got these directly from Shari Ulrich. Squash 1. $9.99 + $12.50 Shipping (This is being directly sent to you by Shari from Canada). (30)
*** Pied Pumkin - Allah Mode - New Sealed Vinyl LP - Their second album features Shari, Rick & Joe joined by future Hometown Band Bass Player Doug Edwards & drummer Geoff Eyre. After this album, Shari would leave the trio to join The Hometown band as vocalist for their 2 fine albums. This record features the first recorded version of Shari's best known song, Fear Of Flying which was actually written by guitarist Joe Mock. Other highlights include Lotus Eater Blues, & Bless The King Heart. Never issued on cd. Squash 2. $9.99 + $12.50 Shipping (This is being directly sent to you by Shari from Canada). (30)
*** Pied Pear - Pied Who... Pear What? - New Sealed Vinyl LP - After Shari Ulrich left for the Hometown band, Rick Scott & Joe Mock continued on as a duo for 2 more fine records. This one features a guest spot from Shari on Caught In The Rain; + Mushroom Madrigal, No 5 Orange, No 1 Son, Eliza & more. Squash 965. $9.99 (4)
*** Pied Pear - The Pear Of Pied Pumkin - New Autographed Vinyl LP - Their last studio album (& last album period for 20+ years), this one again features Rick Scott & Joe Mock as a duo, with guest appearances by Shari Ulrich & Hometown Band Drummer Geoff Eyre, Bass Player Doug Edwards & Sax Player/Claire Lawrence. Highlights from this one include Salt My Song, Dancing When He Did, Tapioca Pudding, Mt McKinley & more. Only 1 song from this is on the greatest hits cd; the rest of this fine album is unavailable elsewhere. This is the hardest to find of the 4 PP albums; Shari thought she was completely out but we just got 2 more! Also autographed by Shari! Squash U2R#1. $9.99 (3)
