THE REAL REAL GONE STORY

In 1993, two Ohio boys, Gordon Anderson and Gabby Castellana, both separately started businesses - Collectors' Choice Music and Hep Cat Records & Distribution - that were to become two of the most important outlets for buyers and sellers of vintage music recordings. Now, 18 years later, they have joined forces to launch Real Gone Music, a reissue label dedicated to serving both the collector community and the casual music fan with a robust release schedule combining big-name artists with esoteric cult favorites.  Real Gone Music is a music company dedicated to combing the vaults for sounds that aren't just gone - they're REAL GONE.

What makes a piece of music real gone? It can be from any era, any genre, from superstar acts or the most overlooked artist - but if it's REAL GONE, it's an essential recording coming to you with excellent sound and packaging, designed to make you feel like you did the first time you bought an album or single at your local record store.  And, unique among American indie reissue labels, our release schedule is going to feature about ten titles per month. Because there is still a lot of music out there to rediscover, savor and celebrate.

"Get real gone...for a change!"

Larry Coryell/At the Village Gate ....CD $14.99

Larry Coryell/At the Village Gate ....CD $14.99

Larry Coryell unexpectedly passed away earlier this year right after our Real Gone reissue of his second solo album, Coryell, and with the renewed attention given to his monumental recorded legacy, we decided to move up our long-in-the-works domestic CD debut of his album At the Village Gate in order to expose this classic record to the largest audience possible. This is the recording where Larry really went axe-to-axe with Jimi Hendrix, who had passed away four months prior to the January 1971 gigs that formed the basis of this release; perhaps in response, Coryell formed his own power trio of his own composed of himself, drummer Harry Wilkinson, and bassist Mervin Bronson to play material that stylistically wasn't too far removed from the funk/jazz/rock of Jimi's Band of Gypsys. The result was a fan favorite that somehow has never been issued on CD in the U.S. (and came out overseas over a decade ago on a couple of lightly-distributed labels of suspect provenance). Coryell's Gibson 400 has seldom sounded as slashing as it does here, while Wilkinson's playing (aptly described as "busy" by Downbeat) is a cross between Mitch Mitchell, Tony Williams, and Buddy Miles; Bronson keeps things rooted when Coryell heads for the stratosphere. Which is often ... this is maybe the most "heroic" of this underappreciated guitar hero's records. Mike Milchner's remastering captures every coruscating note, and Bill Kopp's liner notes feature an interview with drummer Wilkinson. One of the truly great jazz-rock guitarists, loud, free 'n' fiery!

Grateful Dead/Road Trips Vol. 4 No. 5 - Boston Music Hall 6-9-76 ....triple CD $49.99

Grateful Dead/Road Trips Vol. 4 No. 5 - Boston Music Hall 6-9-76 ....triple CD $49.99

It was our great honor at Real Gone Music to issue all 36 volumes of Dick's Picks, the Grateful Dead's landmark live concert series; over the four and a half years it took us to release all three dozen titles, we sometimes felt like we were on the greatest Dead tour ever, every single show a classic! Well, our diligence in releasing Dick's Picks has had a "Ripple" effect, for now the band is entrusting us with releasing its subsequent live concert series, Road Trips! Unlike Dick's Picks, which saw about two-thirds of its titles go to regular retail in their original incarnations, NONE of the entries in the Road Trips series were offered to retail outlets outside of the Dead's own website. The Road Trips series was also a little different from Dick's Picks in that the early volumes assembled tracks from different shows on the same tour, while later volumes presented single shows. Since it worked so well with Dick's Picks, we are reissuing the last titles first, and we have enlisted the series' original designer, Steve Vance, to convert the original wallet packaging to customer-friendly triple-CD jewel case. Another cache of brilliant live Dead, finally available in record stores!

In June 1976, the Grateful Dead ended its 20-month hiatus from touring with two shows at the Paramount in Oregon, then headed to Boston and the acoustically friendly confines of its Music Hall for a four-night run. This show is from the first night and was hence the third show on the "comeback tour." The band is clearly settling back into a groove here; in particular, Jerry Garcia's voice is as strong as it's ever been, and the inclusion of some unusual material (like the only encore version of "Franklin's Tower" ever performed) makes this a highly collectible show. Among the highlights are a dazzling "Crazy Fingers" from Blues for Allah (which had been released during the band's hiatus, so new to set lists), and an exceptionally long and tight "St. Stephen" to lead off the second set. The third disc offers bonus gems, like a rare version of "Mission in the Rain," from the last night of the run, too; excellent sound throughout, long out of print!

Laura Nyro/A Little Magic a Little Kindness - The Complete Mono Albums Collection ....double CD $22.99

Laura Nyro/A Little Magic a Little Kindness - The Complete Mono Albums Collection ....double CD $22.99

Can you surry? Can you picnic? Laura Nyro, to use her own fanciful word, surried onto the scene 50 years ago with the release of her debut album More Than a New Discovery. Its title was certainly apt. Throughout the course of her life, Nyro wrote and introduced some of the most beloved popular songs of all time with her singular fusion of pop, jazz, R&B, soul, Broadway, and folk sounds. Real Gone Music and Second Disc Records are proud to celebrate the golden anniversary of Laura Nyro's debut with a landmark 2-CD collection. A Little Magic, A Little Kindness: The Complete Mono Albums Collection features, for the very first time on CD, both of Nyro's original mono albums newly remastered by Vic Anesini at Sony's Battery Studios from the original master tapes. More Than a New Discovery, originally released on Verve Folkways in 1967, premiered the songs that Barbra Streisand, Blood Sweat and Tears, and The 5th Dimension would all take up the charts, including "Stoney End," "And When I Die," "Blowin' Away," and perhaps the most famous song Nyro ever wrote, "Wedding Bell Blues." This special edition restores the original album sequence and mono mix from the very first version of the album. In 1968, Nyro moved to Columbia Records for her most acclaimed album, Eli and the Thirteenth Confession. Its songs were once again adopted by other artists such as Three Dog Night, Frankie Valli, and of course, The 5th Dimension. Featuring "Eli's Comin'," "Emmie," "Sweet Blindness," and the era-defining "Stoned Soul Picnic," this ultra-rare album - thought by many Nyro connoisseurs to be superior to the familiar stereo version - also makes its maiden appearance on CD. A handful of bonus tracks round out this special package, including the Bones Howe-produced "pop" version of "Save the Country," and the CD debuts of the Verve "censored" single version of "Stoney End" and the single mix of "Eli's Comin'." The Second Disc's Joe Marchese provides new liner notes. A Little Magic, A Little Kindness: The Complete Mono Albums Collection pays tribute to one of pop's most enduring iconoclasts. It's a soul picnic you won't want to miss.

The Rascals/The Complete Singles A's & B's ....double CD $32.99

The Rascals/The Complete Singles A's & B's ....double CD $32.99

With two fantastic singers and songwriters in Felix Cavaliere and Eddie Brigati, an underrated guitarist and songwriter in Gene Cornish, and the great Dino Danelli on drums (plus a pair of studio Svengalis in engineer Tom Dowd and arranger Arif Mardin to rival George Martin), The Rascals were the closest answer America had to The Beatles during the '60s. The resemblance wasn't limited to the composition of their line-up and the profusion of hit releases, either; like the Fab Four, The Rascals were able to author chart-topping singles while simultaneously crafting albums that held together as artistic statements. Witness the fact that The Rascals' albums have seen numerous reissues by multiple labels; their singles, on the other hand, have eluded a comprehensive collection, in large part because the band had two phases to their career, one with the Atlantic label, the other on Columbia. Now, just over 50 years after they first hit the top of the charts with "Good Lovin'," Real Gone Music is proud to present the first-ever compilation to collect all of the band's single sides in one place. At 47 songs strong, The Complete Singles A's & B's includes the A and B-side of every single The Rascals ever cut, both their hit Atlantic tracks and - for the first time ever on CD - their later Columbia 7" releases. Along the way you'll hear such legendary songs as "I Ain't Gonna Eat Out My Heart Anymore," "Good Lovin'," "Groovin'" (also here in its Spanish and Italian versions!), "I've Been Lonely Too Long," "A Girl Like You," "How Can I Be Sure," "A Beautiful Morning," "People Got to Be Free," "See," and more, the earlier tracks in their original mono single mixes (termed "the money mixes" by Cornish), the later songs in their stereo single mixes (28 of the 47 songs on the collection are mono). Such a monumental release deserves annotation commensurate with its importance, and for this 2-CD set Ed Osborne has penned a 4500-word essay containing exclusive quotes from Cavaliere, Brigati, and Cornish, punctuated with rare European picture sleeve singles and photos. Remastered by Mike Milchner at SonicVision, and featuring a total of 19 charting songs, The Complete Singles A's & B's takes its place as the definitive career-spanning collection from America's greatest blue-eyed soul outfit.

Jessie Ed Davis/Red Dirt Boogie - The Atco Recordings 1970-1972 ....CD $17.99

Jessie Ed Davis/Red Dirt Boogie - The Atco Recordings 1970-1972 ....CD $17.99

Throughout the 1960s and '70s, Native American guitarist Jesse Ed Davis was the "go-to" sideman for a remarkable group of musicians. Starting in the mid-sixties, he toured with Conway Twitty, then become a key part of Taj Mahal's band, playing on several albums and tours including an appearance on The Rolling Stones Rock and Roll Circus and his historic pairing with Leon Russell to play on Bob Dylan's "Watching the River Flow" at the Concert for Bangla Desh (after which he accompanied George Harrison). By now, he'd caught the eye of ATCO Records, which released his debut LP Jesse Davis in 1971 featuring Russell, Eric Clapton, Gram Parsons, Merry Clayton, Ben Sidran, John Simon (producer of The Band), Alan White (of Yes), and many others including Delaney Bramlett behind the mixing desk.  A year later, Atco released Ululu containing some of the same all-stars, plus Duck Dunn, Jim Keltner, and Dr. John - and a version of George Harrison's "Sue Me, Sue You Blues" before even George recorded it. Next up, Jesse become John Lennon's guitarist on Walls and Bridges and Rock n Roll, plus Harrison's Extra Texture and Ringo Starr's Goodnight Vienna.  Davis also produced and played on Gene Clark's 1971 album White Light and appeared on Clark's No Other, Leonard Cohen's Death of a Ladies' Man, and that's Jesse taking the solo on Jackson Browne's 1972 breakout hit "Doctor My Eyes."  Despite his status as one of the all-time great session guitarists, Jesse Ed Davis's solo LPs have been out of print for years and hard to find on CD - so for the very first time, the best of the ATCO material has been collected together,coupled with some unreleased gems from the Atlantic Records vault! Real Gone Music proudly presents Jesse Ed Davis: Red Dirt Boogie - The Atco Recordings 1970-72, a 19-track collection featuring liner notes (festooned with photos from the Atco vaults) by Pat Thomas that trace the ups and downs of this supremely talented musician whose life ended tragically at the age of 43 from a drug overdose . Remastered by Mike Milchner at SonicVision to bring out every stinging lead!  The timing couldn't be more perfect, as Davis is featured in a new documentary that debuted at Sundance a few months ago: Rumble: The Indians Who Rocked the World -  including Robbie Robertson and John Trudell.

Artful Dodger/The Complete Columbia Recordings ....double CD $22.99

Artful Dodger/The Complete Columbia Recordings ....double CD $22.99

Artful Dodger was a band ahead of its time, casting hard-edged hooks into a mid-'70s pond that wasn't quite ready to bite on the genre that came to be known as power pop. Had they come along a few years later, things might have been quite different for this outfit hailing from Fairfax, VA, for their three albums for the Columbia label hold up to this day as shining examples of the style. Their first two records, 1975's Artful Dodger and 1976's Honor Among Thieves, combine Beatle-esque pop and driving rock in the finest Raspberries tradition (interestingly, Artful Dodger had a big following in Cleveland, the Raspberries' home town); they feature refreshingly straightforward production from Jack Douglas (Aerosmith) and/or Eddie Leonetti and some really tremendous songwriting especially on tracks like "Wayside" and "Scream." And 1977's Babes on Broadway, while showing some signs of a group frustrated with its lack of commercial success, definitely has its moments, particularly on the song "Can't Stop Pretending." Unfortunately, without a stylistic pigeonhole to place them in, Columbia was unable to move any copies and dropped them, which explains why Artful Dodger has been so hard to find in the digital era, with CDs of their first two albums commanding huge sums online and the third one never coming out at all. Now, Real Gone Music is shining a long-overdue spotlight on this seminal power pop band with a 2-CD set that includes all three albums plus a couple of single versions, their COMPLETE recordings for the Columbia label, newly remastered by Maria Triana at Battery Studios in New York. Jeremy Cargill's notes feature fresh quotes from band members Steve Cooper and Steve Brigida, plus we've dug up some rare photos from the Columbia vaults. Power pop fans, prepare to have your minds blown!

Marc Johnson/Years [Expanded Edition] ....CD $14.99

Marc Johnson/Years [Expanded Edition] ....CD $14.99

The Vanguard Records label is known for some obscure gems, but Marc Jonson's 1972 debut album Years, just might be the rarest - and the fairest - of them all! Not only has it never been reissued on vinyl or CD or even bootlegged, but this lost psych folk/baroque pop masterpiece marked quite a departure for a label known for its traditional folk, blues, and roots music. Comparisons have been made to Tim Buckley's Goodbye & Hello, Phil Ochs' Pleasures of the Harbor, Bill Fay's first album as well as other obscure Popsike legends such as Bobb Trimble, John Pantry, and David Stoughton ... throw in a touch of the intimate vibe of Big Star and you'll have an idea of the coolness that awaits those who discover (or rediscover) this cult classic. As Jonson remarks in the liner notes, "I used left over harpsichords from classical sessions the night before. I hired string players and a string arranger. I even met a street player named Steven Gardner who played the recorder!"  Produced for reissue by Pat Thomas, this expanded reissue of Years sports many rare vintage photos, a detailed interview with Marc Jonson by Steve Simels, an ace remastering job (from the original tapes) by John Baldwin, and four bonus tracks featuring plus a non-LP single and several 7 inch single mixes, all never before on CD!

Cheap Trick/The Epic Archive Vol. 1 1975-1979 ....CD $17.99

Cheap Trick/The Epic Archive Vol. 1 1975-1979 ....CD $17.99

If a group's made up of two genuine rock star types, a Huntz Hall lookalike with a guitar fetish, and a guy who looks like an accountant, which one d'ya think would keep track of its recording archive? Don't worry, it's not a "trick" question - it is indeed the bespectacled Bun E. Carlos, the drummer for the original line-up of Cheap Trick, who has not only commented on every song (as faithfully transcribed by Ken Sharp) but provided much of the source material for this collection of rarities from the band's early days, 18 tracks that reconfirm that the singular blend of classic rock, power pop, and glam - and inspired visual style - wielded by this outfit of Rockford, Illinois places them among the first rank of American rock 'n' roll bands. First up are three 1975 demos (of "Come On, Come On," "Southern Girls," and "Taxman, Mr. Thief") they cut at Ardent Studios in 1975 prior to signing a record deal, followed by early, 1976-1977 studio takes (produced by Jack Douglas) of "You're All Talk" and "I Want You to Want Me," an outtake, "Lookout," from their debut record, and an alternate (and nasty) version of "I Dig Go-Go Girls." On deck are an instrumental version of "Oh Boy" (the B-side to "I Want You to Want Me") and live versions of "You're All Talk" and "Goodnight" from a 1977 stand at the Whiskey, and a pair of alternate takes from the Heaven Tonight album, "Stiff Competition" and "Surrender." Also inside are five rarities from the band's famed Japanese tours, including the single version of "Ain't That a Shame," the promo-only release "Lookout," and three tracks from the out-of print Budokan II album, "Stiff Competition," "How Are You," and "On Top of the World." The "no strings" version of "Dream Police" rounds out the collection in fine style.  Compiled by producer Tim Smith, remastered by Vic Anesini at Battery Studios in New York, and featuring photos by Robert Alford, The Epic Archive Vol. 1 (1975-1979) takes its place as a key release in the august Cheap Trick discography

Southside Johnny and the Asbury Jukes/The Fever - The Remastered Epic Recordings ....double CD $24.99

Southside Johnny and the Asbury Jukes/The Fever - The Remastered Epic Recordings ....double CD $24.99

Here at last is the anthology Jukes fans have been waiting for, the one that not only includes all four albums the group cut with Miami Steve Van Zandt (including the CD debut of the promo-only LP Jukes Live at the Bottom Line), but also finally, finally presents this seminal body of work in newly remastered form. Indeed, the Epic recordings of Southside Johnny and the Asbury Jukes, the crucial early sides that made their reputation (and featured a ton of Springsteen/E Street Band spillover), have long suffered from indifferent sound and packaging, as all reissues have been taken from the same digital masters made at the dawn of the CD era. The Fever - The Remastered Epic Recordings changes all that - all four Epic albums including I Don't Want to Go Home, Jukes Live at the Bottom Line, This Time It's for Real, and Hearts of Stone (plus the single version of "Havin' a Party") appear here in brand-new, sparkling versions remastered from the original master tapes by Mark Wilder at Battery Studios in New York. What's more, the 2-CD, 40-track collection offers new liner notes by Chris Morris that feature fresh quotes from Southside Johnny himself, and Bruce Springsteen's original liner notes for I Don't Want to Go Home. Speaking of Springsteen, his fingerprints are all over these projects, with such songs as "The Fever," "Little Girl So Fine," "Love on the Wrong Side of Town," "When You Dance," "Talk to Me," "Trapped Again," and "Hearts of Stone" all written or co-written by The Boss, while Van Zandt not only produced all four Epic albums but wrote much of the repertoire. But the real star here, of course, is Southside Johnny himself, one of the great white R&B singers of this or any other time, backed by a crack band including The Miami Horns and with such special guests as Ronnie Spector, The Coasters, The Drifters, and The Five Satins. Joyful, soulful music finally sounding the way it oughtta!

Kris Kristofferson & Rita Coolidge/Full Moon [Expanded Edition] ....CD $18.99

Kris Kristofferson & Rita Coolidge/Full Moon [Expanded Edition] ....CD $18.99

It is mighty, mighty hard to believe, but this famed duets album - which went to #1 on the country charts and #26 on the pop charts - has never been issued on CD outside of Japan, and even there only in the late '80s on a limited run.  This was a love album par excellence, as the two stars had just gotten married weeks prior to the record's release in 1973; interestingly, though Kris Kristofferson, fresh from recording his country chart-topper "Why Me," was the bigger star at the time, Full Moon really played to Rita Coolidge's strengths, as it was produced by her long-time producer David Anderle and set its songs in a higher key more suited to her dreamy vocals.  The album scored a huge hit with Kristofferson's "A Song I'd Like to Sing," and followed that up with a smash version of Tom Jans' "Loving Arms.;" the duo's rendition of Kristofferson's "From the Bottle to the Bottom" also won a Grammy for Best Country Vocal Performance by a Duo or Group. In short, Full Moon is and was a stone-cold classic; and our Real Gone Expanded Edition even adds adds no less than six unreleased tracks from the A&M vaults including a Kris & Rita duet and five more Rita solo recordings from the period! Cornerstone '70s country.

Rita Coolidge/Beautiful Evening - Live in Japan [Expanded Edition] ....CD $14.99

Rita Coolidge/Beautiful Evening - Live in Japan [Expanded Edition] ....CD $14.99

Originally released on LP only in Japan, Hong Kong, and Australia, this 1980 live album captures Rita Coolidge at the height of her powers and international popularity, and with a crack band featuring Booker T. Jones, Michael Warren, Salvatore Guglielmi, Mike Utley, Richard Adelman, Phyllis Battell and Carlena Williams. The set list is just killer, with big hits from throughout her career, like "(Your Love Has Lifted Me) Higher and Higher," "I'd Rather Leave While I'm in Love," a solo version of her then-current hit duet with Glen Campbell, "Somethin' 'Bout You, Baby I Like," her smash version of the Chiffons' "One Fine Day," "Fever," and "Fool That I Am." And for an "encore," we have rounded up five studio tracks that never surfaced outside of Japan. A long-lost delight from the Rita Coolidge catalog!

Various Artists/Honeybeat Groovy 60s Girl-Pop ....CD $17.99

Various Artists/Honeybeat Groovy 60s Girl-Pop ....CD $17.99

Hey, '60s pop collectors ... do you suppose there might be some killer rare tracks lurking inside the Sony archives?  Yeah, that's what we thought, too ... so we enlisted girl group expert extraordinaire Sheila Burgel (producer of the Grammy-nominated box set One Kiss Can Lead to Another: Girl Group Sounds Lost & Found and the Japanese girl pop series Nippon Girls among other prodigious collecting feats) to go tape spelunking and see what she could come up with. And man, was THAT a good decision - cuz Sheila (and Sony Legacy producer Rob Santos) have emerged triumphantly from their journey into the deepest nooks and crannies of the Sony vaults with 19 fantastic girl pop finds that sound like they shoulda been, coulda been hits had anybody heard them the first time around! Just to give you an idea of how deep these tracks are, these 19 songs hail from no less than nine different labels (Columbia, Date, RCA Victor, Epic, Bell, OKeh, Sound Stage 7, Groove, and Amy); about a third of them have never been reissued anywhere (one, Dorothy Jones' "Talk that Sweet Talk," is previously unreleased), and the rest have only appeared on obscure imports, some of dubious origin. What's more, for her detailed liner notes, Sheila has whenever possible tracked down and interviewed the artist(s) in question, in some cases stirring up long dormant and emotionally charged memories of their days in the music business, with rare, never before seen photos lending color to their accounts.  Remastered by Vic Anesini at Battery Studios in New York, Honeybeat: Groovy 60s Girl Pop offers a treasure trove of rarities for the girl group collector, a seamless listen for a vintage pop fan, and a much-needed journey back to a more innocent time in the record business.

Soft Machine/Live at the Paradiso [Limited "Soft" Purple Vinyl Edition] ....vinyl LP $29.99

Soft Machine/Live at the Paradiso [Limited "Soft" Purple Vinyl Edition] ....vinyl LP $29.99

Soft Machine was one of the first prog-rock bands, but if your vision of prog-rock consists of musicians wreathed in pot smoke airily singing of fairies and wizards, it will be summarily dispelled by this fantastic "authorized bootleg," which captures the band in March 1969 at the Paradiso in Amsterdam, playing material that was to be released six months later on Soft Machine: Volume Two. The trio of Robert Wyatt on drums and vocals, Mike Ratledge on organ, and Hugh Hopper on bass launch what can only be called a high-decibel, jazz-rock sonic assault; "Like vindaloo for the ears" is how Hopper puts it on the accompanying notes on the inner sleeve, adding, "I do remember playing incredibly loud, Mike on fuzz organ and me on fuzz bass, both through hundred-watt Marshall stacks."  Some of the frenzied instrumental passages might recall Miles Davis' Agharta-era band, but remember, this is a trio making all this racket (in 1969, no less); Soft Machine at this point in time were on a journey all their own. This is the first-ever vinyl release of this notorious concert, and it comes on "soft" purple vinyl limited to 1000 copies. Anybody interested in just how far out rock got in the late '60s will want to give this repeated listens.

Larry Coryell/Coryell ....CD $14.99

Larry Coryell/Coryell ....CD $14.99

Larry Coryell is one of the greatest guitarists ever to walk the face of the earth, but he remains somewhat underappreciated - witness the fact that this, his second solo album, has never been released on CD until this Real Gone reissue!  1969's Coryell offers an intriguing blend of improvised and arranged pieces, with an all-star cast that includes Ron Carter, Bernard Purdie, Albert Stinson ("The Jam with Albert" is perhaps the highlight of the entire album), Chuck Rainey, and Free Spirits bandmate Jim Pepper.   Jimi Hendrix is definitely an influence on this jazz-rock gem, but Coryell takes his axe in directions only known to him; at this time, only John McLaughlin (with whom Coryell would shortly cut the one-off Spaces) could rival him in the fusion field.   Bill Kopp's notes include copious quotes from Larry Coryell himself; Mike Milchner's remastering lets this overlooked album shine.

Todd Rundgren & Utopia/Live at the Old Waldorf [Limited Gold Vinyl Edition] ....double vinyl LP $39.99

Todd Rundgren & Utopia/Live at the Old Waldorf [Limited Gold Vinyl Edition] ....double vinyl LP $39.99

This limited edition double-LP release once again proves that there were very, very few bands in the late '70s that could match the stylistic sweep, musicianly chops, and quality of repertoire wielded by Todd Rundgren & Utopia. This August 5, 1978 set at the Old Waldorf in San Francisco captures the band at the beginning of an extensive U.S. tour, but it had already been a busy year of touring for Todd, as back in May he had assembled an all-star band for residencies at the Bottom Line in New York City and the Roxy in Los Angeles. Performances from those shows that (along with a portion of an August 23 Utopia date from this tour) comprised the release of the double live LP Back to the Bars in December 1978, and fans of that album will find much to treasure here on this well-recorded release taken from the evening's stereo master tapes. Here you get a chance to hear Utopia back Todd on songs, like "Black and White" and "The Last Ride" (an epic version!), from which they were absent on Back to the Bars, and Live at the Old Waldorf offers such Utopia favorites as "Trapped," "Abandon City," "Back on the Street," and "Gangrene" from 1977's Oops! Wrong Planet that did not appear on Bars. Even more importantly, the band is on fire this night, displaying the rare mixture of note-perfect arrangements and improvisatory verve that made Todd Rundgren & Utopia such a must-see concert draw during the era. One last note about this release: because Todd was such a dynamic live performer, there have been a series of authorized live "bootlegs" that have come out on CD in recent years, but very few have come out on LP; we have cherry picked what just may be the best of the bunch and put it on double gold vinyl inside a gatefold package limited to 1000 copies. It belongs on your shelf right next to your other Rundgren records from the era...don't miss it!

Delaney & Bonnie and Friends/Motel Shot [Expanded Edition] ....CD $17.99

motel.jpg (18311 bytes)

Though they never achieved the popular success enjoyed by some of their peers, Delaney & Bonnie Bramlett spearheaded the roots-rock revolution of the late '60s and early '70s along with The Allman Brothers and The Band, turning away from the exoticism of psychedelia towards music "rooted" in blues, country, and soul.  Witness the fact that the "And Friends" that played with the pair included Eric Clapton, George Harrison, Leon Russell, Dave Mason and Bobby Whitlock....out of Delaney and Bonnie's various aggregations arose Derek and the Dominoes and Joe Cocker's band for the legendary Mad Dogs and Englishmen tour.  And for Motel Shot, the duo's fourth studio album and their third for Atco/Atlantic, the circle of "friends" included Cocker, Whitlock, and Mason, plus appearances by Duane Allman, Gram Parsons, and John Hartford among others!  But for the most part, this is a largely acoustic, charmingly informal affair dipped in gospel and dominated by the Bramletts and Whitlock; the Motel Shot title refers to informal, after hours jam sessions on the road. But there's a whole lot more to the story (and to this release!). The project began not in a hotel room but in the living room of engineer Bruce Botnick, with November 1970 sessions as a prospective release for Elektra Records. But, after Delaney had a falling out with label head Jac Holzman, the project moved to Atco, who put the "band" into a proper studio to re-record much of the material. Those later sessions comprise the original album, which has heretofore only appeared briefly on CD in Japan; but, after hours of tape research, co-producers Bill Inglot and Pat Thomas uncovered the original "living room" sessions that yielded the eight unreleased tracks on this Expanded Edition CD release - and notably is the first American CD release of the original Motel Shot album as well.   Remastered by Inglot, with an essay by Thomas that includes exclusive (and extremely candid) quotes from Bonnie Bramlett, Bobby Whitlock, Bruce Botnick, and Jac Holzman, Motel Shot finally is presented here the way it was originally conceived, and takes its rightful place as one of the great albums of the classic era of the roots rock movement.

Grateful Dead/Dick's Picks Vol. 33: 10-9 & 10-76 Oakland Coliseum Stadium Oakland CA ....4 CD Set $55.99

Grateful Dead/Dick's Picks Vol. 33: 10-9 & 10-76 Oakland Coliseum Stadium Oakland CA ....4 CD Set $55.99

Fresh from a year-and-a-half touring hiatus, and back to full, two-drummer strength, the Dead opened for The Who as part of Bill Graham's historic Day on the Green concerts in 1976. This 4-disc set - which is among the cleanest soundboard recordings in the entire series - captures both dates in their entirety, and features one of the most monumental medleys (and that's sayin' something!) in band history with a 60-minute, 10-song journey through St. Stephen/Not Fade Away/St. Stephen/Help on the Way/Slipknot!/ Drums/Samson and Delilah/Slipknot!/Franklin's Tower/One More Saturday Night on the first day. Day two offers excellent takes on two solo Garcia favorites, Might As Well and The Wheel, that were new to the concert repertoire and a particularly fine Ramble on Rose. Bill Graham had honored the Dead by selecting them to close the year's stellar series of Day on the Green concerts, and that - perhaps coupled with the presence of formidable co-headliners The Who - sparked some of the band's finest performances of the period.

Grateful Dead/Dick's Picks Vol. 34: 11-5-77 Community War Memorial Rochester NY ....triple CD Boxed Set $44.99

Grateful Dead/Dick's Picks Vol. 34: 11-5-77 Community War Memorial Rochester NY ....triple CD Boxed Set $44.99

This three-CD set won raves from the Dead collector community both for its pristine sound (mastered in HDCD) and blazing performances (check out the ever-ascending version of The Other One in the second set).  Includes the complete 11/5/77 show from the Community War Memorial in Rochester, leavened with some particularly inspired excerpts from the 11/2/77 show at the Seneca College Field House in Toronto.

Jim Kweskin/Relax Your Mind ....CD $14.99

Jim Kweskin/Relax Your Mind ....CD $14.99

After a couple of albums on Vanguard Records established Jim Kweskin and the Jug Band as a major force in the folk scene, their leader had something different in mind for his first LP without the group. Billed to Jim Kweskin, 1965's Relax Your Mind gave him the opportunity to, as he puts it in Richie Unterberger's liner notes, record "music that was a little more meaningful to me personally."  With accompaniment by the Jug Band members Fritz Richmond on washtub bass and Mel Lyman on harmonica, Kweskin delivered a set just as diverse as his records with the full Jug Band, encompassing traditional folk standards, blues, gospel, African music, and more. Mel Lyman's original, stream-of-consciousness liner notes (also included here) describe an uproarious, impromptu jam session in the Vanguard studios from which much of this record was taken; the rest comes from a live date recorded at Cambridge's Club 47 a year or two earlier.   Remastering by Mike Milchner at SonicVision and copious Kweskin quotes in the notes present this fine folk album - which sees its first domestic release to retail - in its best light.

Alice Babs & Duke Ellington/Serenade to Sweden ....CD $17.99

Alice Babs & Duke Ellington/Serenade to Sweden ....CD $17.99

Real Gone Music is proud to present what is probably the rarest album in the voluminous Duke Ellington discography, his 1963 date with Swedish singer Alice Babs, Serenade to Sweden. That year, Ellington was hired by the Reprise label as an A&R man, free to sign any artist he wanted and to record them. His first choice was Babs, who, in Ellington's words, was "the most unique artist I know...She sings opera, she sings lieder, she sings what we call jazz and blues, she sings like an instrument, she even yodels, and she can read any and all of it!" For her part, Babs (born Hildur Alice Nilson) had a hit in Sweden when was only 15 ("Swing It Teacher"), and was an iconic figure in her homeland, appearing in 14 Swedish films from 1938 to 1959. The result of this meeting of legendary musical minds was a sublime cool jazz masterpiece that, sadly, never received a proper release in the U.S. and appears to be the only Ellington album never to be reissued on CD or even digitally, having eluded even the most comprehensive compilers. Needless to say, original copies go for big Swedish krona online, and not just because it's rare; Babs' wordless vocals and scat singing on "The Boy in My Dreams," "Strange Visitor," and "Babsie" are positively Ella-worthy, and Ellington's masterful arrangements - at times filigreed with a French horn section - provide the perfect accompaniment. We've added liner notes by Scott Yanow, while the album boasts remastering by Aaron Kannowski. Fascinating for any jazz fan - essential for Ellington enthusiasts!

The 5th Dimention/The Complete Soul City-Bell Singles 1966-1975 ....triple CD $35.99

The 5th Dimention/The Complete Soul City-Bell Singles 1966-1975 ....triple CD $35.99

A 50th anniversary celebration calls for some champagne...champagne soul, that is! Back in 1966, Billy Davis, Jr., Florence LaRue, Marilyn McCoo, Lamonte McLemore, and Ron Townson first started making beautiful music together, and the world of pop music has never been the same. Now, in 2016, 50 years later, Real Gone Music is proud to present the most comprehensive 5th Dimension collection ever compiled, a 3-CD set containing their complete singles for the Soul City and Bell labels (plus their first single on the Bronco label as The Versatiles and their lone single release for Arista), 61 tracks of swinging, soulful harmonies, brilliant arrangements, groundbreaking production, and some of the best songwriting to come out of the '60s and '70s. This 3-CD set - which is housed inside a sumptuous, 8-panel digipak mini-album featuring rare photos - not only includes 30 Pop and 15 R&B hits, all in their hard-to find, mono mixes (only the last four tracks on the set are in stereo), featuring such legendary recordings as "Up - Up and Away," "Stoned Soul Picnic," "Aquarius/Let the Sunshine In," "Wedding Bell Blues," "One Less Bell to Answer," "(Last Night) I Didn't Get to Sleep at All," and "If I Could Reach You," but also some rare, non-LP single sides and single edits, nearly all making their CD debuts here! With production by the great Bones Howe, vocal arrangements by Bob Alcivar, and the instrumental accompaniment of the famed Wrecking Crew, the confluence of talent on these sides is simply staggering. And, of course, The 5th Dimension brought the songwriting genius of Laura Nyro and Jimmy Webb to the masses; their collaborations with Webb in particular remain among the pinnacles of '60s pop. Remastered by Mark Wilder at Battery Studios, and with notes by Paul Grein featuring quotes from Billy Davis, Jr. and Marilyn McCoo that trace the historic arc of the group, The Complete Soul City/Bell Singles 1966-1975 isn't just the definitive look at The 5th Dimension; it's a collection that defines the whole sunshine pop genre.

Original Soundtrack/The Fish that Saved Pittsburgh [Expanded Edition] ....CD $16.99

Original Soundtrack/The Fish that Saved Pittsburgh [Expanded Edition] ....CD $16.99

Real Gone Music and Second Disc Records are tipping off 2017 with a slam dunk release! The 1979 cult favorite film The Fish that Saved Pittsburgh featured an all-star team from the worlds of basketball and Hollywood - Julius "Dr. J" Erving, Meadowlark Lemon, Kareem Abdul-Jabbar, Jerry Tarkanian, Stockard Channing, Jonathan Winters, Flip Wilson, Debbie Allen, Harry Shearer, and more - for its fantastical tale of a struggling Pittsburgh basketball team that beats the odds with a little help from the heavens. The movie's soundtrack was equally illustrious. Pop-soul maestro Thom Bell, renowned for his work with The Spinners, The Stylistics, The Delfonics, and Johnny Mathis, wrote, produced, arranged, and conducted his very first motion picture score, and the result was a soul symphony incorporating funk, disco, and jazz rhythms, and of course, Bell's trademark luscious balladry. An A-team of R&B's finest artists was enlisted to perform Bell's all-new songs, including The Four Tops, The Spinners, Bell and James, Phyllis Hyman, The Delfonics' William "Poogie" Hart, and The Sylvers, plus country superstar Loretta Lynn, ragtime legend Eubie Blake, and the one and only Doc Severinsen. Yet, when the movie came and went from theatres, so did the soundtrack album ... until now! The Fish gained a cult following on television and VHS, and now, it's time for its sizzling soundtrack to have its chance on the court, too.  Hip-hop's most tuned-in artists have already sampled these lost grooves; now you can hear the originals! The first-ever CD release of The Fish that Saved Pittsburgh boasts a sparkling new remastering from the original Lorimar Records tapes by Sean Brennan at Sony's Battery Studios, detailed liner notes by The Second Disc's Joe Marchese featuring fresh quotes from Thom Bell, and three rare bonus tracks: two distinctive 12-inch mixes of Bell and James' infectious title track, and the lush, dramatic "Pisces Theme." This deluxe Expanded Edition is nothing but net, and a must-have for classic soul fans from Philly to Motown ... and of course, Pittsburgh.  The Doctor is in!

The Beau Brummels/Triangle + Bradley's Barn ....CD $18.99

The Beau Brummels/Triangle + Bradley's Barn ....CD $18.99

While San Francisco's Beau Brummels are best known to casual fans for the British Invasion style hits "Laugh, Laugh" and "Just a Little," the two albums they cut for Warner Bros. with producer Lenny Waronker, Triangle and Bradley's Barn, remain their most artistically ambitious and critically acclaimed records, and continue to exert an influence on modern-day rockers well beyond their modest commercial success. The group was at a low point when they recorded Triangle; they were fresh off the debacle of Beau Brummels '66, the album of covers that was their ill-conceived Warner debut, and the original quintet had shrunk down to a trio of vocalist Sal Valentino, guitarist and principal songwriter Ron Elliott, and bassist Ron Meagher. But with Waronker as producer, the band was for the first time given the freedom to craft a coherent project from beginning to end, with help from some creative sidemen like Van Dyke Parks; the result was a moody, mysterious masterpiece that spoke to the psychedelic spirit of 1967 yet stood apart from it with such ethereal songs as "Magic Hollow" and "Painter of Women." Triangle also had hints of the newly emerging country rock style, and for 1968's Bradley's Barn, the Beau Brummels (now just consisting of Valentino and Elliott with Meagher off to the military) went to Nashville to record with such crack Music City session men as Jerry Reed, David Briggs, Norbert Putnam, and Kenneth Buttrey. Unfortunately, Bradley's Barn met the same fate as Triangle, scoring big with critics but not with audiences; today, however, highlighted by such twangy tunes as "Loneliest Man in Town" and "Long Walking Down to Misery," it's reckoned as a country rock landmark and a true alt-country precursor.  Real Gone Music is proud to present these two classic albums together on one CD for the first time, complete with Richie Unterberger's liner notes featuring quotes from songwriter Ron Elliott. Essential listening from perhaps the most underrated band of the '60s.

Cowboy/5'll Getcha Ten ....CD $16.99

Cowboy/5'll Getcha Ten ....CD $16.99

Led by Scott Boyer and Tommy Talton, the Jacksonville band Cowboy was discovered by none other than Duane Allman, who, as legend has it, banged on their door at 7 am one day and asked to hear some songs. He then recommended them to Capricorn label owner Phil Walden, who sent Allman Brothers producer Johnny Sandlin to check them out; Sandlin ended up producing several Cowboy albums for Capricorn, of which this 1971 release was the second. The Allman Brothers connection on this album is even more explicit than it was on their debut album (Reach for the Sky, also reissued by Real Gone Music); Allman plays guitar on "Lookin' for You" and dobro on "Please Be with Me," while ABB keyboardist Chuck Leavell appears on half of the album tracks.  But what makes 5'll Getcha Ten special - and indeed what makes it many Cowboy fans' favorite record - is the songwriting. "Please Be with Me" was covered by Eric Clapton on his classic 461 Ocean Boulevard release, and throughout the album a gentle undercurrent of spirituality courses through these beautifully played and sung songs, particularly on "What I Want Is You," "Innocence Song" and the title tune. Scott Schinder's notes contain revealing quotes from Tommy Talton; we've also added some great period photos and provided a pristine remastering job by Maria Triana at Battery Studios in New York. Worldwide CD debut!

King Curtis/The Complete Atco Singles ....triple CD $44.99

King Curtis/The Complete Atco Singles ....triple CD $44.99

King Curtis was the greatest R&B instrumentalist of all time, period. And it's not much of a contest. Born Curtis Ousley in Fort Worth, Texas in 1934, the saxophonist played on hundreds of the most hallowed recording sessions of all time, everything from the Coasters' "Yakety Yak" to John Lennon's Imagine album. But Curtis wasn't just a superstar sideman; he also was responsible for some of the greatest Pop/R&B instrumental albums of all time, including such Atco label classics as Live at Small's Paradise, King Curtis Plays the Great Memphis Hits, Instant Groove, and, of course, Live at Fillmore West. Often overshadowed by the brilliance of his session work and his long players, however, is the fact that Curtis was actually quite a successful singles artist, notching 25 Pop and 10 R&B hits during his storied career. And, though it was during his tenure(s) at Atco that he recorded the most popular albums of his career, he also cut a mind-boggling 66 single sides (including two that never were released until now) for the label. It is this hitherto-untapped treasure trove that Real Gone Music's King Curtis: The Complete Atco Singles presents on three CDs in this unprecedented collection.  Not only is this the first time on CD for virtually all of these original mono single mixes, but among these 66 tracks are over two dozen sides that never appeared on LP! That's right .. even if you own every Atco album King Curtis put out, you have never heard over a third of this set unless you bought all of the original 45s back in the day. And the caliber of the musicianship? Well, as the most in-demand session man in America, Curtis got to know a lot of folks, so appearing on these sessions are the great Muscle Shoals and Memphis studio cats like Cornell Dupree, Jimmy Johnson, Spooner Oldham, Roger Hawkins, Tommy Cogbill, and Reggie Young, plus a few other folks you might have heard of, like Duane Allman, Eric Clapton, and Delaney Bramlett! Not to mention the alternately tender, searing, and soaring sax lines of Mr. Curtis himself, heard on such classic tracks as "Memphis Soul Stew," "Ode to Billie Joe," and "Whole Lotta Love" (yes, the Led Zeppelin song) cheek-by-jowl with a host of smokin' rare Bsides. Leiber & Stoller Music Publishing head honcho Randy Poe supplies the liner notes (Leiber and Stoller, of course, had a long relationship with Curtis), which we've put inside a gleaming 8-panel digipak sporting some great photos and Atco single labels. All but one of the 66 tracks have been transferred from tape in the Warner/Atlantic archives, and Mike Milchner of SonicVision provides the meticulous remastering. The R&B retrospective of the year!

The Electric Prunes/The Complete Reprise Singles ....CD $16.99

The Electric Prunes/The Complete Reprise Singles ....CD $16.99

Though the Electric Prunes were responsible for some of the boldest and most experimental pop of the late '60s, they always were, more than just about any band of their ilk, a singles-oriented act, at least in their earliest incarnation. In fact, according to vocalist James Lowe, the engineers at American Recording, where many of their early singles were recorded, used to transmit the single mixes to a radio in a car parked outside the studio to make sure the songs sounded good in the medium through which most people would hear them. As a result, the Prunes singles were punchier than their album counterparts, and were, above all, mono - yet to date, no legitimate collection has ever compiled these singles, many of which have never been on CD in their original mix. Now, for the first time, Real Gone Music has assembled all 23 of their original single sides for Reprise, which span several band line-ups and several legendary producers (Dave Hassinger, David Axelrod) with very different visions, yet remain of remarkably consistent high quality. Richie Unterberger's notes include track commentary from the band and shots of the original singles themselves. Special bonus: the band's demonstration of the Vox Wah-Wah Pedal!

Grateful Dead/Dick's Picks Vol. 2 - Columbus Ohio 10-31-71 ....double CD $24.99

Grateful Dead/Dick's Picks Vol. 2 - Columbus Ohio 10-31-71 ....double CD $24.99

The Grateful Dead's Halloween 1971 performance is almost enough to make one believe in spirits. For that night - captured on this, the only single CD release in the entire Dick's Picks series - the group played the most ethereal, dreamy, and, yes, spooky version of "Dark Star" ever recorded; it's almost as if Jerry Garcia was communing with his ancestors (and maybe John Coltrane) for the first seven minutes of his beautifully structured, contemplative and yearning solo. Then, after the vocal verse, Garcia, rhythm guitarist Bob Weir and bassist Phil Lesh take turns suggesting a new improvisational theme before the band telepathically picks up on a two-note theme and Garcia launches into some of the most ecstatic guitar playing ever captured on tape anywhere (labeled by some the "Tighten Up" jam after the Archie Bell & the Drells song; others hear an embryonic "Eyes of the World"). The rest of the disc is more than fine, with a spirited "Sugar Magnolia," a rare, early '70s performance of "St. Stephen" (the final live version until 1976) and a great "Not Fade Away"/"Goin' Down the Road Feeling Bad" closer rounding out the 59-minute program. But really, the "Dark Star" is worth the price of this single CD release alone. Out of print for years!

The Ides of March/Vehicle [Expanded Slipcase Edition] ....CD $13.99

The Ides of March/Vehicle [Expanded Slipcase Edition] ....CD $13.99

With our release of well-received titles by Blood, Sweat & Tears and Tower of Power, we at Real Gone have become something of a home for the great "horn bands" of the late '60s and early '70s, and our reissue of The Ides of March's classic Vehicle album on the 50th brings another one into the fold. "The Ides" began in a basement in the Chicago suburb of Berwyn on October 16th, 1964, and have stayed together ever since; only the Rolling Stones really rival them for longevity. And this album, Vehicle, was their commercial high-water mark; its title track went to #2 and the album to #55 on the 1970 charts. It's a happy collision (no pun intended) of the band's garage-y British pop influences and the more progressive sounds of Chicago and BS&T that were sweeping through FM radio at the time; our Expanded Edition features four single bonus tracks and notes by Richie Unterberger featuring quotes from the band's Jim Peterik and Larry Millas. Now out in a lower-priced version with upgraded slipcase packaging!

Iron Butterfly/Ball [Expanded Edition] ....CD $14.99

Iron Butterfly/Ball [Expanded Edition] ....CD $14.99

Everybody remembers In-A-Gadda-Da-Vida, but guess what? This album actually went higher in the charts for Iron Butterfly, going all the way to #3! Ball had a couple of hit singles in "In the Time of Our Lives" and "Soul Experience," but what really made the album tick was how the band (the classic line-up of Doug Ingle, Erik Brann, Lee Dorman and Ron Bushy) was able to move to a more melodic style while still retaining their righteous heavy-osity. Our Expanded Edition features two bonus single sides and much improved sound compared to its previous CD reissue, plus new liner notes by Bill Kopp.

Nils Lofgren/Nils Lofgren ....CD $16.99

Nils Lofgren/Nils Lofgren ....CD $16.99

As Nils himself puts it in his notes for our Real Gone reissue of this classic record, "My first self-titled solo album, affectionately nicknamed the 'Fat Man' album [after the front cover photo], remains a colorful and dramatic chapter in my musical and personal life. And still, one of my best albums." Indeed, this 1975 release spawned a couple of instant classics in "Back It Up" and the Keith Richards homage "Keith Don't Go (Ode to the Glimmer Twin)," plus an exceptional cover of Carole King's "Goin' Back" among its many high points. And while some fans familiar with Nils' work with Grin and Neil Young were expecting more guitar flash, the spare production by David Briggs and the funky, sympathetic rhythm section of Aynsley Dunbar and Wornell Jones put the focus where it belonged: on the songs. The reputation of this album has only grown over the years, but its only recent appearance on CD in this country was on a long out of print limited edition release; our Real Gone version features liner notes from Nils that take you behind the scenes in the studio and even on the album art photo shoot, and adds some rare pictures to boot. You gotta have this one if you're a '70s rocker.

The Mamas & The Papas/The Complete Singles 50th Anniiversary Collection ....double CD $32.99

The Mamas & The Papas/The Complete Singles 50th Anniiversary Collection ....double CD $32.99

With the debut of their first hit, "California Dreamin'," on the charts, The Mamas and the Papas proclaimed themselves to be a potent new force in the burgeoning West Coast folk-rock movement, announcing to the world that something special and beautiful was happening in California. Now, 50 years to the day after "California Dreamin'" entered the Billboard Hot 100 Real Gone Music is celebrating this very special anniversary by releasing The Mamas and the Papas: The Complete Singles - The 50th Anniversary Collection, a two-CD, 53-track set that includes for the first time ever the A and B side of every single the group released, all in their impossible-to-find-on-CD original mono single mixes. But this one-of-a-kind collection - which is remastered by Aaron Kannowski, the engineer responsible for Real Gone's acclaimed collections of singles by fellow Dunhill label acts The Grass Roots and Steppenwolf - doesn't stop with The Mamas and the Papas' singles; it also includes the solo single sides that group members Mama Cass Elliot, Denny Doherty and John Phillips cut for the Dunhill and ABC labels, again in their rare, original single mixes. Co-Producer Ed Osborne's notes feature quotes drawn from extended interviews with Mama Michelle Phillips and Dunhill label head and producer Lou Adler, while the package also includes a number of rarely-seen images of this eminently photographable band. Many of the solo singles and B-sides have never been on CD, let alone in their single mixes; plus, over the course of listening to this set (which clocks in at over 150 minutes) you're going to hear such legendary songs as "Monday, Monday," "California Dreamin'," "Creeque Alley," "I Saw Her Again," "Words of Love," "Dream a Little Dream of Me," "Glad to Be Unhappy," "Dedicated to the One I Love," and "It's Getting Better" exactly as folks heard them over the radio back in those halcyon days. Due to the unfortunate situation with the Dunhill single master tape reels (supposedly thrown out at the behest of one of the label's owners), Mamas and Papas fans had despaired of ever hearing the group's original singles on CD. Now, after countless hours spent tracking down sources, Real Gone Music is proud to release the most significant addition to The Mamas and the Papas discography in years!

Robbie Robertson & Alex North/Carny (O. S. T.) ....CD $16.99

Robbie Robertson & Alex North/Carny (O. S. T.) ....CD $16.99

Though he was one of the three acting leads (along with Jodie Foster and Gary Busey) in the 1980 film Carny, it's debatable how many fans of Robbie Robertson and his work with and without The Band are aware of this key release in his discography. That's because, despite the pedigree of its cast and the colorful setting of a traveling carnival, the film bombed at the box office, weighed down by a weak script and questionable directorial choices. But the score - half composed by Robertson and half by the great Alex North (Cleopatra, Who's Afraid of Virginia Woolf et al.) remains a wonderful oddity. Robertson had himself spent two years working at a carnival in his teens, so it was a subject near and dear to his heart (witness The Band's "Life Is a Carnival"); he also reached out to friends like Dr. John and Randall Bramlett to create sonic settings alternately sleazy, strutting and funky (and don't miss his guitar solo on "Garden of Earthly Delights"). North, for his part, seemed affected by what Robertson in Rob Bowman's liner notes to this Real Gone reissue terms the "insane" nature of the film shoot, particularly on the closing "Carny Theme," which Robertson calls "like Nina Rota on acid." Right after the film wrapped, Robertson went to New York to serve as musical supervisor for Martin Scorsese's Raging Bull, which began a long string of collaborations with Scorsese and other film directors; thus, as his first involvement with dramatic film, Carny really heralded a new artistic avenue in Robertson's career. Worldwide debut on CD, with liner notes featuring copious quotes from the actor/composer himself!

Shanti/Shanti ....CD $14.99

Shanti/Shanti ....CD $14.99

One of the earliest and greatest raga rock bands!  Shanti's most famous member was the legendary tabla player Zakir Hussain, who moved to Marin County in the late '60s and was eventually to hook up with the Grateful Dead's Mickey Hart in the Diga Rhythm Band and Planet Drum. But before that, he formed this outfit, which also featured renowned sarod player Ashish Khan along with former members of the Loading Zone, Cold Blood and the Travel Agency. The blend of East and West on this 1971 album is utterly unique; the closest comparison might be Kaleidoscope with respect to the exoticism and the caliber of musicianship, but Shanti's harmonies sound more like Crosby, Stills & Nash and the flavor is definitely more Indian than Middle Eastern. Over the years, Shanti has ascended into serious cult status, having been sampled by everybody from Fatboy Slim to Richard Ashcroft, but it's never been reissued in any form till now. Richie Unterberger's notes place Shanti (the group and the album) within the late '60s/early '70s Bay Area rock cosmos. A Real Gone raga resurrection and a real head trip!

Jeremy Spencer/Jeremy Spencer [Expanded Edition] ....CD $15.99

Jeremy Spencer/Jeremy Spencer [Expanded Edition] ....CD $15.99

With Mick Fleetwood, John McVie, Danny Kirwan and Peter Green all playing on the record, it would be easy to label Jeremy Spencer's 1970 solo release "The Great Lost Early Fleetwood Mac Album." And you'd be right - up to a point. For while Spencer's bandmates are all unmistakably there - perhaps making up for Spencer's absence on Then Play On - this record is very much a product of Spencer's own unique take on blues and pop music. Spencer was always a bit of a wildcard in Fleetwood Mac; on record, he was the most tradition minded bluesman in the band, but on stage he was a real live wire, notable not just for his scorching (and sometimes suggestive) renditions of old blues tunes but also for his gifted mimicry of such performers as Elvis Presley, Buddy Holly and John Mayall. That penchant for parody definitely carries over to Jeremy Spencer; Presley ("If I Could Swim the Mountain"), Holly ("Linda"), and Mayall ("Mean Blues") all get their come uppance, with nods to surf pop ("Surfin' Girl") and rockabilly ("You Made a Hit," previously recorded by Charlie Rich and Ray Smith) along the way. But perhaps the best tunes on the album are two flat-out rockers: "Here Comes Charlie (with His Dancing Shoes On)" is a Yardbirds-style rave-up, while "Take a Look Around Mrs. Brown" could easily have been a Small Faces track from circa 1967 (though it's preceded by the sound of somebody throwing up - nobody would ever, and we mean ever, accuse Spencer of catering to commercial interests). Our Expanded Edition of this charmingly eccentric cult classic includes liner notes by Richie Unterberger featuring quotes from the artist and a non-LP bonus track, "Teenage Darling," that Spencer used to perform on stage dressed as Elvis Presley!

Steppenwolf/The ABC-Dunhill Singles Collection ....double CD $32.99

Steppenwolf/The ABC-Dunhill Singles Collection ....double CD $32.99

What was the hardest-rocking band ever to notch three Top Ten hits? For our money, it's Steppenwolf. Formed from the Canadian band The Sparrow (including Dennis Edmonton a.k.a. Mars Bonfire), and led by vocalist John Kay, Steppenwolf scored with "Born to Be Wild," "Magic Carpet Ride" and "Rock Me" in the space of nine months back in 1968-1969, and hit the charts eleven more times up through the mid-'70s. Often tagged as a biker band - mostly due to their prominent presence on the soundtrack to Easy Rider - Steppenwolf was actually a socially-conscious, highly political outfit, never more so than on their controversial LP Monster, one of 14 charting albums released by the band over a 20-year period. This ability to enjoy commercial success on both the single and album fronts puts them in a very rare category in the annals of rock and roll; and, unsurprisingly, their albums have been well represented in the CD reissue era. Their singles, however, have largely been unavailable on CD in their original 45 mixes, as the tapes for the singles have long been missing (legend has it Dunhill label chief Jay Lasker discarded all the label's multi-track tapes and mono masters after having deemed them too expensive to store). But, just like on our critically-acclaimed Grass Roots singles set, engineer Aaron Kannowski has, after a worldwide search, rounded up the best sources available and put together a two-CD set that doesn't just include the A and B-side of every Steppenwolf single on the ABC/Dunhill label (including, for the first time ever, a decent sounding "Magic Carpet Ride"), but of every John Kay solo single as well! And, speaking of John Kay, he sat down with co-producer Ed Osborne for a thorough, track-by-track review for the liner notes (John also requested that we use the album version of "Monster" rather than the single version, because the single is such a pieced-together "Frankenstein" job...pun intended). At 38 tracks, and featuring photos by long-time band photographers Henry Diltz and Tom O'Neal nee Gundelfinger, this is the ultimate Steppenwolf collection - one long dreamed of by the band's fans - and it's finally yours after years of preparation from Real Gone Music!

The Unforgiven/The Unforgiven (Expanded Edition) ....CD $14.99

The Unforgiven/The Unforgiven (Expanded Edition) ....CD $14.99

In 1984, after an article in UK music magazine NME touted The Unforgiven as the next big thing, the six-man guitar band with a look straight out of The Good, The Bad and The Ugly exploded onto an unsuspecting LA hair metal scene with a profoundly different image and sound than anything happening on the Sunset Strip at the time. Within months, the young band found themselves in the middle of one of the biggest bidding wars in music business history. They signed with Motley Crue's manager, Metallica's attorney, powerhouse booking agency CAA, and inked a multi-million dollar recording contract with Elektra records. But the ill-fated country-rock act recorded only one self-titled album, produced by famed Boston producer, John Boylan. The album featured an iconic, black and white cover shot that looked like a movie poster from a '60s western, and it yielded a hit video at MTV for the band's first single: "I Hear the Call." So what went wrong? Well, The Unforgiven set new standards for rock 'n' roll excess, at one point being banned from the state of Colorado for life while on tour with ZZ Top. Then, the incorrigible band of guitar heroes was dropped by both management and label as they succumbed to infighting and the ravages of the road.  As a result, this album never quite got its due; but today, it sounds like the Technicolor frontier love child of the Clash, U2, the Pogues, Def Leppard, Big Country and Ennio Morricone, definitely a hit record that coulda woulda shoulda been. And, of course, the spaghetti western look of the band proved to be enormously influential on everyone from Guns and Roses to Bon Jovi. Now, we at Real Gone Music are proud to present this lost '80s classic in its entirety, with a bonus track (the single version of "I Hear the Call") and a new track recorded by the band in support of their one-off appearance at the 2012 Stagecoach Festival. Liner notes by Chris Morris feature quotes from the band. Don your duster and get ready to rock!

Rick Wakeman/Rhapsodies ....CD $16.99

Rick Wakeman/Rhapsodies ....CD $16.99

Real Gone Music concludes its survey of Rick Wakeman's solo recordings for the A&M label with yet another first-time-on-CD-in-the-U.S. release, this time of his last album for the label, a double-LP from 1979. Unlike many of his other solo records, Rhapsodies consists of short, largely improvisational pieces (17 in all for a 2-LP set - that's practically Ramones style for this composer!) that are brimming with the whimsy and prodigious chops we've come to expect from the erstwhile Yes keyboardist. On the lighter side are the opening track, "Pedra da Gavea," which sets keyboard licks and processed vocals to none other than a Bo Diddley beat, and "Swan Lager," which arranges one of the main themes from "Swan Lake" as a reggae number! But Wakeman's closing solo piano take on "Summertime" is nothing short of gorgeous, and reminds us that, lurking behind the prog rock god/clown facade, was a sensitive and fully mature artist....when he wanted to be. Otherwise, enjoy the dizzying array of musical ideas and motifs from the flying fingers of Mr. Wakeman, with artful annotation by Bill Kopp. Produced by Tony Vischonti of David Bowie fame.

Jesse Winchester/Seems Like Only Yesterday - Live in Montreal 1976 ....CD $18.99

Jesse Winchester/Seems Like Only Yesterday - Live in Montreal 1976 ....CD $18.99

With the passing of Jesse Winchester last year, America lost one of its truly great singer-songwriters, but here is an unexpected release that will remind both his fans and those new to his art what a remarkable talent he was. Seems Like Only Yesterday - Live in Montreal 1976 presents, for the first time anywhere since it aired, the 1976 radio broadcast from Montreal that marked the first time anyone in the United States had heard Jesse perform live since his exile in Canada as a draft resister began in the late '60s (it was also the first ever live show broadcast internationally on stereo FM radio). And, in what had to have been an emotional occasion for Jesse, he rises to the occasion with a sterling set (featuring a full band) that included such classics as "Mississippi You're on My Mind" (covered by Jerry Jeff Walker among many others), "Yankee Lady" (cut by Tim Hardin, Brewer & Shipley and Melanie), "Brand New Tennessee Waltz" and the underground radio stoner classic "Twigs and Seeds," plus some beautiful covers of songs made famous by other artists, like the Everly Brothers' "Bowling Green." Crystal clear sound, liner notes by long-time Winchester fan Gene Sculatti, and photos help make this one of the year's biggest singer-songwriter finds, and a timely tribute to the artist. Not to be missed!
