The Soulful Strings : The Magic of Christmas. CD

The Soulful Strings were without a doubt the hippest project ever to emerge from the ‘60s with the word “Strings” in its name. Brainchild of producer/arranger/bassist/songwriter (and genius) Richard Evans, the group was a far cry from the interchangeable outfits that flourished during the “beautiful music” era; instead, The Soulful Strings were actually composed of members of the Chess/Cadet label house band, including flautist Lennie Druss, guitarist Phil Upchurch, bassist/cellist Cleveland Eaton and harpist Dorothy Ashby, who laid down a tasty electric groove into which Evans stirred lush strings and unusual instrumentation like the kalimba and sitar.

John Gary: The John Gary Christmas Album. CD

With 15 charting albums to his credit during the ‘60s, one would think John Gary would get a lot more recognition than he does these days as one of the leading pop male vocalists of the decade. He certainly was one of the most gifted; his tonal and breath control were pretty much unmatched by his peers, and he had an amazing 3 ½ octave range, often ascending from a meaty baritone to a high, sweet tenor within a single song.

Jay Dee

  • 1977’s Come On In Love Was Yet Another in a Long String of Fantastic Barry White Productions in the ‘70s

  • White Produced and Wrote or Co-Wrote Seven of the Nine Songs

  • Front Man Jay Dee a.k.a. Earl Nelson a.k.a. Jackie Lee Collaborated with White on the Hits “Harlem Shuffle” and “The Duck"

Jay Dee: Come On In Love (Expanded Edition). CD

With production by Barry White, and seven of its nine songs written or co-written by the Walrus of Love, you d think that this one-off release from Jay Dee was in reality all but a solo album from White. And you know what? You d be right...almost. For while Come On In Love sports the trademark lush orchestration (with arrangements by Gene Page) and funky rhythms that made Barry White a superstar during the 70s, the artist Jay Dee was, if not an equal partner, a worthy front man. Born Earl Nelson, he first surfaced in 1963 as half of Bob & Earl on the hit Harlem Shuffle (which was arranged by you guessed it a young Barry White)! Then, as Jackie Lee he scored a huge novelty hit two years later with The Duck, which again had Barry in the background (the two co-composed the single s flip, Ooh Honey Baby ).

Autographed Steppenwolf

First and foremost, we have another one of our patented singles collections on tap for you, this time from the legendary band Steppenwolf. The same team that assembled our acclaimed Grass Roots singles anthology has put together The ABC/Dunhill Singles Collection, a 38-track set that not only includes such hallowed tracks as "Born to Be Wild" and "Magic Carpet Ride" (sounding much better than it ever has before, by the way) but also rare B-sides and John Kay solo sides as well. And penning the notes? Why, band leader and vocalist John Kay himself! And, yes indeed, John has signed some copies for us, 28 booklets to be exact. But, since we have so few signed copies, and since we are selling this highly sought after release for the super low price of $19.98, we're going to do things a little differently this time. These signed copies are going to go so fast that it just doesn't seem fair that somebody who steps away from their computer just for a moment misses out, so we are going to take all of the orders for Steppenwolf we receive between now and 9 am PT Monday August 10 and randomly select 28 lucky customers to receive the autographs. And what about the other folks who order the set? Well, first of all, they'll get The ABC/Dunhill Singles Collection for a price well below what they'd pay for it most anywhere else. But even better, we will email those folks a coupon code for $5 off on their next purchase! So, everyone's a winner in this scenario...and everyone is just going to love this set! ORDER NOW!

The 4 Seasons were and are one of the greatest vocal groups in the history of pop music, and their music has been plentifully available since the “dawn” (pun intended) of the CD reissue era. But there remains a very large gap in their catalog: their original albums have NEVER been available on CD in their original mono mixes! Which really makes no sense; not only were most consumers buying and listening to mono albums during the early and mid ‘60s, when the bulk of The 4 Seasons’ album catalog was released, but also the mono mixes were what the group and its producer Bob Crewe concentrated on and approved. Now, Real Gone Music is embarking on a monorail, er, monaural ride through the 4 Seasons album catalog, releasing the original mono album mixes on CD in chronological order, all taken from tape, and housed inside mini LP sleeves with old-style, “tip on” printing that replicates the original album art all the way down to the original Vee Jay logos. And handling the sound for us? The one and only Bill Inglot, who has been working with the 4 Seasons catalog for years (and the master was approved by Bob Gaudio himself)!.

Real Gone Music is turning up the heat this Summer with a release schedule that just might be the most illustrious one in its proud history. 

Real Gone Music is turning up the heat this Summer with a release schedule that just might be the most illustrious one in its proud history. Leading off is another one of the label’s patented singles collection, this time focusing on the long-lost single sides of Steppenwolf, 38 songs strong and assembled after a worldwide search for the best audio sources, with track-by-track commentary by band leader and vocalist John Kay. The label then stays in the singles groove with a two-CD, 50-track set featuring the Atco/Atlantic singles of the late, great Ben E. King.

Then, Real Gone pays homage to another recently departed legend with a reissue of Someplace Else Now, the lone album Lesley Gore cut for the MoWest label. It makes its worldwide CD debut. And the label continues its rehabilitation of Dusty Springfield’s catalog with a collection of the sides she cut in the U.K. from 1970-1971, 17 hard-to-find tracks never before collected in one place.
