James Horner: Commando--Original Motion Picture Soundtrack (Limited Gunmetal Grey & Blood Splatter Vinyl Edition) (2LP-SET) (Webstore Exclusive) Limited to 200 copies

Having released the Predator soundtrack to great acclaim, we at Real Gone Music now turn to another key film in the career of Arnold Schwarzenegger, Mark Lester’s 1985 film Commando. Coming on the heels of the enormously successful first Terminator film, Commando showed that Schwarzenegger wasn’t just a (excuse the pun) robotic ex-bodybuilder on screen but a real actor capable of playing a multifaceted character, with a real gift for comedy. Commando also heralded Schwarzenegger’s arrival as the biggest action star in Hollywood, a mantle he would cement two years later with Predator. But the two films had more in common than just their leading man. They both benefited from innovative, propulsive soundtracks courtesy of, for Predator, Alan Silvestri, and, for Commando, the great James Horner, composer of scores for Avatar, Titanic, Braveheart, and too many blockbusters to name. For Commando, Horner brilliantly used the South American setting of the film as a jumping-off point, incorporating pan flute and, especially, steel drums into pulsating, suspenseful motifs. For the first-ever release of the Commando score on vinyl, we have taken the tracks that appeared on La-La Land’s extended CD version—complete with three bonus cuts of music that did not appear in the movie and The Power Station’s “Someday, Somehow, Someone’s Gotta Pay”—to create a double-LP set housed inside a gatefold jacket featuring production stills. Limited edition of 1500 in bone with black face paint splatter vinyl!

  • The 1995 Film Tank Girl Is a Bona-Fide Cult Classic 

  • Set in a Dystopic, Resource-Starved Desert Setting, Featuring Great Action Sequences, and Starring the Inimitable Lori Petty in a Lead Role, Tank Girl Is a Feminist (and Funnier) Precursor to Mad Max: Fury Road 

  • But the Soundtrack to Tank Girl Is Even More of a Cult Classic Than the Film 

  • Compiled by Courtney Love 

  • A Who’s Who of ‘90s Female Indie Rock, Including Björk, Hole, L7, Belly, and Veruca Salt 

  • Features Tracks Exclusive to the Soundtrack, Including a Unique Version of Devo’s “Girl U Want,” “Mockingbird Girl” by The Magni cent Bastards (a Side Project of the Late Scott Weiland of Stone Temple Pilots), and a Duet of “Let’s Do It, Let’s Fall in Love” Between Joan Jett and The Replacements’ Paul Westerberg 

  • Also Includes Songs by Bush, Stomp, and Ice-T 

  • Never Before on LP 

  • Real Gone Music’s Release Features a Gatefold Cover with the Movie’s Distinctive, Comic Book Graphics and Production Stills 

  • Aqua Blue Vinyl 


    AVAILABLE April 6, 2018 PRE-ORDER NOW!!   

    It’s a tough call which is the bigger cult classic, the Tank Girl movie or its accompanying soundtrack, but on balance, we’d have to go for the soundtrack. Yeah, the lm had a cast composed of some of the most colorful characters (Iggy Pop, Ann Magnuson) and character actors (Malcolm McDowell, Ice-T, and of course the almighty Lori Petty!) in show biz. And, its dystopic, resource-starved desert setting, intense action sequences, and lead female character mark it as a feminist (albeit funnier) precursor to Mad Max: Fury Road. But check out the soundtrack’s bona- des: assembled by Courtney Love herself, it features a Who’s Who of ‘90s female rock including Hole, Björk, L7, Veruca Salt, and Belly among others. Plus, it even has tracks that were exclusive to its release, like a unique version of Devo’s “Girl U Want,” “Mockingbird Girl” by The Magnificent Bastards (a side project of the late Scott Weiland of Stone Temple Pilots), and a duet of “Let’s Do It, Let’s Fall in Love” between Joan Jett and The Replacements’ Paul Westerberg. There’s one more thing, though, that elevates this particular release from the mere cultish curio to gotta-have-it collectible: because it came out in 1995, the Tank Girl soundtrack NEVER came out on LP!  Yup...this marks the first-ever release of Tank Girl on vinyl, and if there ever was a score that needs to be on wax, this would be it. We’ve done it right, too, with a gatefold jacket featuring the trademark comic book art and stills from the lm, and an aqua blue vinyl pressing limited to 1000 copies!

    Something's Gotta Give Music from the Motion Picture (Limited Sea Foam Green Vinyl Edition). LP

    Nancy Meyers’ 2003 comedy continued her successful collaboration with Diane Keaton (e.g. Baby Boom) and was the rare Hollywood film to focus the romantic spotlight on a couple in the autumn of their years, the fifty-something Keaton and the sixty-something Jack Nicholson. Fittingly for a film whose male lead played a wealthy music mogul who only dated women under 30, the accompanying soundtrack was a dazzlingly eclectic and seductive mixtape from an all-star array of international artists, from Astrud Gilberto to Eartha Kitt to Charles Trénet The Flamingos...and culminated in a rendition of “La Vie En Rose” by none other than Jack Nicholson himself! Something’s Gotta Give never did come out on LP, and for its maiden vinyl release we at Real Gone Music wanted to conjure images of that to-die-for Hamptons beach house inhabited by Keaton’s character—so sea foam green vinyl it is, limited to 1000 copies!

    Jack Kerouac Featuring Al Cohn & Zoot Sims: Blues and Haikus (Limited “Blues” & Yellow Starburst Vinyl Edition) LP

    Just Like Its Predecessor, Poetry for the Beat Generation, Legendary Beatnik Writer Jack Kerouac’s Second Album, Blues and Haikus, Teamed Him with Producer Bob Thiele and Came Out on Thiele’s Douglas Label in 1959 

    But This Time Kerouac Insisted on Real Jazz Musicians Instead of All-Around Entertainer Steve Allen 

    What He Got Were Two Jazz Legends, Both Veterans of Woody Herman’s Band, Saxmen Al Cohn and Zoot Sims, Who Provide E ective Counterpoint Commentary to Kerouac’s Readings 

    As Its Title Indicates, Blues and Haikus Reflects Kerouac’s Interest in Eastern Religion and Philosophy as Expressed in His Novel The Dharma Bums 

    Released in “Blues” and Yellow Starburst Vinyl Limited to 1000 Copies

    AVAILABLE April 6, 2018 PRE-ORDER NOW!!  

    Jack Kerouac Featuring Al Cohn & Zoot Sims: Blues and Haikus (Limited “Blues” & Yellow Starburst Vinyl Edition) LP 

    Legendary beatnik writer Jack Kerouac’s second album once again teamed him with producer Bob Thiele and came out on Thiele’s Douglas label in 1959 just like its predecessor, Poetry for the Beat Generation. But this time around, instead of Steve Allen’s dilettante-ish jazz piano jazz flourishes, Kerouac insisted on bona fide jazz musicians to accompany his stream-of-consciousness prose. And boy, did he get them—saxophonists Al Cohn and Zoot Sims made their bones in Woody Herman’s band and were big-time post-bop players, and here they provide effective counterpoint commentary to Kerouac’s readings. As for those who approach this release from a more literary angle, Blues and Haikus reflects Kerouac’s interest in Eastern religion and meditative practices as expressed in his novel The Dharma Bums as opposed to the more On the Road-like exultations of Poetry for the Beat Generation. But whatever your interest, boppish or bookish, Blues and Haikus is an essential document from one of our most iconic American authors, and, after listening to this album, one thing is for sure: no one is having a better time at this recording session than Kerouac himself! Our release of this cult classic record comes in “blues” and yellow starburst vinyl limited to 1000 copies!

    Tiny Tim God Bless Tiny Tim (Limited Pink Vinyl Edition). LP

  • Tiny Tim a.k.a. Herbert Buckingham Khaury Was Far More Than a Mere Novelty Act 

  • Though Best Known for Getting Married to Miss Vicki on The Tonight Show and for His Farcical Falsetto- and-Ukulele Hit “Tiptoe Thru’ the Tulips with Me,” Tim Was Actually His Generation’s Leading Scholar of Vaudeville and Tin Pan Alley Music 

  • Tim Was Also Blessed with a Stupendous Vocal Range, from Baritone to his Trademark Falsetto, and Was Adept on Not Just Ukulele but Guitar, Mandolin, and Violin 

  • His Debut Album, 1968’s God Bless Tiny Tim, Displayed Both His Knowledge of Early 20th Century Pop Music and His Multi-Faceted Talent 

  • The Album Also Married Tim’s Unique Vision with Amazingly Lush Production by Richard Perry, Who Would Go On to Produce Everybody from Diana Ross to Rod Stewart 

  • God Bless Tiny Tim Featured an Amazing Array of Instruments Including Didgeridoo, Koto, Celeste, and Tympani, with Nary a Ukulele to Be Found on Many Tracks 

  • The Record Also Was Dusted with Some of the Period’s Psychedelic Touches, and Featured an Unexpected Cover of Sonny Bono’s “I Got You, Babe” 

  • First-Ever Vinyl Reissue in the U.S.

    Tiny Tim: God Bless Tiny Tim (Limited Pink Vinyl Edition). LP 

    If you think, based on “Tiptoe Thru’ the Tulips with Me” and his nationally televised marriage to Miss Vicki on The Tonight Show, that Tiny Tim was a mere novelty act, think again. Behind that ukulele, pasty white make-up, falsetto, and prominent proboscis was a serious scholar of American music, perhaps the only performer of the ‘60s (and certainly the only performer of his age group) keeping the torch alive for songs from vaudeville and Tin Pan Alley. Tim (born Herbert Buckingham Khaury) also was blessed with a stupendous vocal range, from baritone to his trademark falsetto, and was adept on not just ukulele but guitar, mandolin, and violin. Even with all that talent, though, had Tiny Tim just made a straight ‘20s trad jazz/pop/folk album for his debut record, God Bless Tiny Tim would not be the stone-cold cult classic it is today. But the album married Tim’s innate eccentricity with stupendously lush production from Richard Perry, who was fresh from working on Captain Beefheart’s debut, Safe as Milk, and would go on to produce everybody from Diana Ross to Rod Stewart. With Perry’s production, and Artie Butler’s arrangements, God Bless Tiny Tim featured an incredible assortment of instruments, from didgeridoo to koto to celeste to tympani, with nary a ukulele to be found on many of the tracks. Furthermore, the album was sprinkled with some of the psychedelic fairy dust that was in the air at the time (1968), full of non sequiturs both verbal and musical (like the cover of Sonny Bono’s “I Got You Babe”). The result: an album that stands outside of time, defying categorization or description. Now, to celebrate its 50th anniversary, Real Gone Music is releasing God Bless Tiny Tim on LP for the first time since its original issue in the U.S. in a pink vinyl edition limited to 900 copies. This record belongs in any serious—or not-so-serious!—record collection.

    Eric Andersen: The Essential Eric Andersen (2CD-Set)

    Author of such nonpareil songs as “Thirsty Boots,” “Violets of Dawn,” “Close the Door Lightly When You Go,” and “Is It Really Love at All” among many others, Eric Andersen is one of the greatest singer-songwriters to emerge from the fabled Greenwich Village folk scene of the ‘60s. But the one thing missing from his catalog of recordings is a true, career-spanning anthology chronicling every phase of his multi-faceted career. Now, Real Gone Music, in association with Sony Legacy and the artist himself, presents The Essential Eric Andersen, a 2-CD, 33-track set that spans 45 years, 10 different labels, and 18 different albums in offering the de nitive look at his body of work. The highlights are too numerous to list but here are a few; the retrospective ttingly begins with two solo tracks from his 1965 debut Vanguard album Today Is the Highway before touching on such career standouts as his Blue River album (represented by four tunes including “Is It Really Love at All” and the title track with Joni Mitchell), its follow-up Stages ( ve songs including “Time Run Like a Freight Train” with Dan Fogelberg on background vocals), the tapes for which were lost for two decades before being found in the Columbia vaults, and even an unreleased track, a cover of Merle Haggard’s “Mama Tried” featuring David Bromberg on dobro. Disc two leads off with several tracks from Eric’s Arista recordings including live takes of “Thirsty Boots” and “Violets of Dawn,” and then features collaborations with fellow legends Lou Reed (“You Can’t Relive the Past”), Richard Thompson (“Hills of Tuscany”), and Rick Danko (“Keep This Love Alive” and “Driftin’ Away,” with the Danko, Fjeld and Andersen band), as well as other recent recordings made in Europe. The collection concludes by coming full circle with his earliest recording, a 1964 duet with Phil Ochs on “Plains of Nebrasky-O” recorded for Smithsonian-Folkways and released on The Best of Broadside collection, bringing Eric all the way back to his Greenwich Village roots. With notes by Anthony DeCurtis of Rolling Stone, photos from Eric’s private collection, a pristine remastering job by Mark Wilder at Battery Studios in New York, and a timely release in anticipation of the release of a new documentary lm, The Songpoet, The Essential Eric Andersen isn’t just the essential work of a major gure in American music—it’s just plain essential.

    Real Gone Music and Second Disc Records are proud to kick off a new series celebrating
    the legendary Johnny Mathis’ classic albums

The blues they sent to meet you won’t defeat you with this newly-expanded edition of one of Johnny’s most beloved albums!

    Johnny Mathis: Sings the Music of Bacharach & Kaempfert CD

    In a career spanning over 60 years, Johnny Mathis has always had an unerring ear for a song...witness his new, 2017 album featuring his recordings of future standards by Adele, Bruno Mars, and Pharrell Williams. At the dawn of the 1970s, Mathis was celebrating the great songwriters of that day, too, with a double album entitled Johnny Mathis Sings the Music of Bacharach and Kaempfert. Real Gone Music and Second Disc Records are proud to inaugurate a series of Johnny’s greatest albums of the 1970s and beyond on CD with the first-ever expanded reissue of The Music of Bacharach and Kaempfert. Bert Kaempfert may not have achieved the same name recognition in the U.S. as Burt Bacharach, but Kaempfert’s contributions to the standards songbook are indelible, thanks to such songs as “Danke Schoen,” “Spanish Eyes,” “Strangers in the Night,” and “L-O-V-E,” all of which are sung in Johnny’s inimitably intimate style on this collection. Johnny was joined by German arranger-conductor Herbert Rehbein, a close collaborator of Kaempfert’s, for these very special sessions. Johnny’s relationship with Burt Bacharach dated to the late 1950s with classics including “Heavenly” and “Faithfully.” Soon, Bacharach’s style would de ne the sound of the 1960s, and Johnny was bringing his individual stamp to “This Guy’s in Love with You,” “I Say a Little Prayer,” and “I’ll Never Fall in Love Again.” All of these songs and more are featured on Mathis’ Bacharach salute. In true Real Gone/ Second Disc style, though, that’s not all! We’ve added ve rare bonus tracks to this already jam-packed double album: Bert Kaempfert’s “It Makes No Difference,” originally issued only in the U.K., and four hits by Burt Bacharach and Hal David including their very rst song with Johnny, “Warm and Tender,” and three more favorites from Johnny’s Global Records period! Mathis + 1 Burt + 1 Bert = Johnny Mathis Sings the Music of Bacharach and Kaempfert, or 26 tracks of musical bliss!

    Jackie DeShannon: Stone Cold Soul--The Complete Capitol Recordings CD

    After spending the rst full decade  of her recording career at Liberty/ Imperial Records, where she immortalized such iconic anthems as “What the World Needs Now Is Love” and “Put a Little Love in Your Heart,” Grammy-winning singer-songwriter Jackie DeShannon was wooed away to Capitol Records in 1971. Upon landing at her new label, the Kentucky-born DeShannon was dispatched to Memphis’ American Recording Studios, where, with producer Chips Moman and a crack band consisting of Bobby Emmons and Bobby Woods on keyboards, Reggie Young on electric guitar, Mike Leach on Bass, Johnny Christopher on acoustic guitar, and Gene Crisman on drums, she recorded a avorful mix that embraced her Southern soul roots blended with country, gospel, and pop. The wide-ranging repertoire included the DeShannon originals “West Virginia Mine” and “Now That the Desert Is Blooming” along with songs by George Harrison (“Isn’t It a Pity”), Van Morrison (“And It Stoned Me”), Carole King & Gerry Gof n (“Child of Mine”), Emitt Rhodes (“Live till You Die”), Arlo Guthrie (“Gabriel’s Mother’s Highway”), Spooner Oldham & Dan Penn (“Sweet Inspiration”), and others. But those tracks inexplicably remained in the vaults, leapfrogged by the tracks DeShannon cut at Capitol Studios upon returning to California that turned into her Songs album. In fact, of the Memphis tracks, only a single (“Stone Cold Soul”) and a lone track on Songs (“Show Me”) were released at the time. The rest of the Songs album, co-produced by DeShannon with Eric Malamud and John Palladino, featured covers of Bob Dylan’s “Lay Lady Lay” (retitled “Lay, Baby, Lay”) and Hoyt Axton’s “Ease Your Pain” plus a shimmering trio of DeShannon originals: “Salinas,” “Bad Water,” and a remake of “West Virginia Mine.”

    The Oak Ridge Boys: When I Sing for Him--The Complete Columbia Recordings and RCA Singles (2 CD)

    Before “Elvira” and “Bobbie Sue” catapulted them into the mainstream of commercial pop, The Oak Ridge Boys paid their dues as both recording artists and popular live performers. The band’s history was a long one, with the original Oak Ridge Quartet dating back to the 1940s. But the birth of The Oak Ridge Boys, as we know the group, really took place in 1973 at Columbia Records. That was when Joe Bonsall joined Duane
    Allen, William Lee Golden, and Richard Sterban to complete the foursome that still packs houses today. The Oak Ridge Boys recorded three albums for Columbia between 1973 and 1976, dipping their toes into pop, rock, and mainstream country for the rst time while still embracing their gospel roots. Shockingly, none of these albums have ever been released on CD anywhere in the world—until now! Real Gone Music and Second Disc Records are raising the curtain on this lost chapter of Oak Ridge Boys history with a de nitive, new 2-CD anthology.

    Axe Rock 'N' Roll Party--The Complete Atco Recordings CD

    Formed by Ex-Members of Babyface, and Led by Guitarist Bobby Barth (Later of Blackfoot), the Florida Band Axe Put Out a String of Minor Pop-Metal Classics in the Late ’70s and Early ‘80s 

    Inked to MCA in 1979, Axe Really Hit Their Stride When They Brought In Bassist Wayne Haner and Signed to Atco in 1981 

    Their Two Albums for Atco, Offering and Nemesis, O ered an Irresistible Heartland Rock Recipe of Good-Time Boogie Metal and Biker Rock Blended with Southern Rock and ’80 Keyboard Cheese

    Axe: Rock 'N' Roll Party--The Complete Atco Recordings. CD

    It really was a rock ‘n’ roll party any time this Florida band came to town! Formed from the
    ashes (whiskers?) of Babyface, this ve-piece led by guitarist Bobby Barth signed with MCA in the late ‘70s for two albums, but really put the pedal to the metal when they brought in Wayne Haner as bassist and inked with Atco in 1981. In fact, the two albums they recorded for the label, Offering and Nemesis, offered good-time boogie metal and biker rock years before folks like Sammy Hagar and Motley Crüe rode the formula to platinum success and excess; throw in a little Southern rock (Barth went on to join Blackfoot) and a chunk of keyboard cheese and you had a greasy recipe tailor-made for heartland success. Unfortunately, Axe also became known for a true rock ‘n’ roll tragedy; guitarist Mike Osborne was killed in a car accident that also seriously injured Barth, and the band broke up soon after. But at their peak, Axe offered a uniquely American answer to period Brit-rockers like Judas Priest and Motörhead with melody to burn. This new collection offers every note Axe recorded for Atco, including the two albums plus a bonus track, “Midnight,” not to mention classic tunes like “Rock ‘N’ Roll Party in the Streets,” “Girls, Girls, Girls,” and “Heat in the Street.”. Scott Schinder’s essay puts Axe in its proper place in the American metal pantheon. Get out your air guitar, er, axe!

    Consisting of Sides Dating from 1968 to 1972, One Life to Live Is Her Sole Album Release 

    Includes the Hits ““Long Time No Nice Time,” “We Belong Together,” and “One Life to Live, One Love to Give”

    AVAILABLE March 2, 2018 PRE-ORDER NOW!! 

    Phyllis Dillon: One Life to Live (Limited Violet Vinyl Edition) LP

    As the only album ever released by the leading female singer of the entire rocksteady movement, One Life to Live is a crucial document of the era and genre; that it also happens to be a fantastic record is just gravy! Dillon spent her entire career recording for Duke Reid’s Treasure Isle imprint; though One Life to Live was released in 1972, it is something of a compilation, including material recorded through 1968 to 1972. And as
    such, it features a bunch of her solo hits, including “Long Time No Nice Time,”
    “We Belong Together,” and the title tune. But to American ears, her interpretations of such rock warhorses as George Harrison’s “Something” and Stephen Stills’ “Love the One You’re With” may stand out the most; in her light, rocksteady style laced with rock and pop, she truly makes these songs her own. For this rst-ever Stateside vinyl reissue, we have remastered this seminal album to make it sound better than it ever has, and we’re issuing it in a violet vinyl edition limited to 700 copies!

    Ken Boothe: Freedom Street (Limited Grey “Asphalt” Vinyl Edition) LP

    First-ever vinyl reissue of the classic 1970 album from Mr. Rock Steady! Ken Boothe was the most soulful singer of the rocksteady era, often likened to a Jamaican Wilson Pickett, and his mid-‘60s recordings for Clement “Coxsone” Dodd’s Studio One label were and are among the genre’s most coveted sides. In 1970, he moved to Leslie Kong’s Beverley’s imprint for this album, which continued his string of hits with the songs “Why Baby Why,” “Now I Know,” and the title tune, “Freedom Street.” We’ve remastered this landmark reggae/rocksteady release to make it sound better than it ever has, and pressed it up in a grey “asphalt” vinyl edition limited to 700 copies!

    Trevor Jones & Randy Edelman Last of the Mohicans Original Motion Picture Soundtrack (Limited Sepia-Toned Vinyl Edition)

    Boasting a Bravura Performance by Daniel Day-Lewis, Michael Mann’s 1992 Epic Retelling of James Fenimore Cooper’s frontier classic The Last of the Mohicans Has Passed into the Classic Movie Pantheon, with Repeated Cable TV Showings 

    But the Movie’s Success Has Been Somewhat Overshadowed by Its Wildly Popular Soundtrack 

    Trevor Jones and Randy Edelman’s Score Is Easily One of the Most Popular Pieces of Film Music from the ‘90s Despite Having Been the Work of Two Different Composers 

    The “Main Title” Has Become as Much a Part of Pop Culture as the Themes to Titanic, Star Wars, and Other Blockbusters 

    Also Includes “I Will Find You” by Clannad 

    Real Gone Music’s First-Ever North American Release of the Soundtrack Comes in Sepia-Toned Vinyl

    Trevor Jones & Randy Edelman: Last of the Mohicans Original Motion Picture Soundtrack (Limited Sepia-Toned Vinyl Edition)

    Rare is the soundtrack that as time passes overshadows the film of which it was a part, but that’s what has happened in the years since the 1992 release of The Last of the Mohicans. Not that the film is any slouch; Michael Mann’s epic retelling of James Fenimore Cooper’s frontier tale is a cable TV fixture and more evidence that Daniel Day-Lewis is one of the great actors of our time. But the film’s music has emerged as easily one of the most popular scores of ‘90s cinema, with the “Main Title” in particular having become a part of our popular culture the same way as, say, the signature themes from Titanic, Star Wars, and other blockbusters. What makes it even more extraordinary is that the movie’s score emerged from postproduction turmoil as the work of two different composers, Trevor Jones and Randy Edelman. Jones’ work is more of the traditional orchestral soundtrack ilk, Edelman’s has a more contemporary feel, but somehow it all fits, with the closing credit song “I Will Find You” by Clannad an added bonus. Long a bestselling soundtrack CD, we at Real Gone Music are releasing this revered soundtrack on vinyl for the first time in North America in sepia-toned vinyl limited to 1000 copies, inside a brand-new gatefold festooned with production stills. Guaranteed to get your blood stirring!

    Ron Wood & Ronnie Lane Mahoney’s Last Stand CD

    The Soundtrack to Mahoney’s Last Stand Is One of the Rarest Entries in the Respective Discographies of Faces Members Ron Wood and Ronnie Lane 

    Recorded in 1972 by Wood and Lane While Waiting Around for Rod Stewart to Show Up to the Ooh La La Recording Sessions, the Album Was Not Released Until 1976 

    Its Obscurity Can Also Be Attributed to the Fact That Actor- Director Alexis Kanner’s Film Never Saw a Proper Theatrical Release 

    But the Recording Sessions Attracted the Cream of British Rock Royalty, Including Pete Townshend, Blind Faith and Family member Rick Grech, Fellow Faces Ian McLagan and Kenney Jones, Soon-to-Be Fellow (for Wood) Rolling Stones Habitués Ian Stewart, Bobby Keys, and Jim Price, Micky Waller (Wood’s Fellow Member in the Jeff Beck Group of the Late ‘60s), and Grease Band Member Bruce Rowland 

    Much of the Music Has a Rustic, Rural Feel in Keeping with the Film’s Setting 

    Also Includes Some Blues-Rock Riffage (e.g. “Woody’s Thing”) Like What Wood Would Explore with Keith Richards in the Stones 

    Highlight of the Album is Lane’s “Just for a Moment,” Which Is a Prime Example of the Wistful, Yearning Roots-Rock That Made His Solo Work So Captivating 

    Liner Notes by Richie Unterberger 

    Never Before Released on CD in the U.S., and Only Briefly Available on CD Abroad

    Ron Wood & Ronnie Lane: Mahoney’s Last Stand CD

    What do two Faces do when their lead singer (bon vivant Rod Stewart) doesn’t show up for the Ooh La La recording sessions? They work on a soundtrack for an obscure film by actor and friend Alexis Kanner (most famous for his guest roles on the late-‘60s TV series The Prisoner), and draft the uppermost rank of British rock royalty to play on it! Indeed, given the pedigree of the personnel on this project, it is rather stunning how obscure this 1976 album from Faces members Ron Wood and Ronnie Lane remains, having only been issued on CD abroad and for a brief time at that; one suspects it has much to do with the flop of the film (which appears to have only been screened at the Canadian Film Festival), and the fact that the original LP was released four years after it was recorded in 1972. Just listen to the roll call of session men on Mahoney’s Last Stand, which was produced by Glyn Johns, himself a British rock and roll noble of good standing and fresh from producing Paul McCartney and Wings’ Red Rose Speedway when he worked on this album: Pete Townshend (guitar and “special electronic effects”), Blind Faith and Family member Rick Grech, fellow Faces Ian McLagan and Kenney Jones, soon-to-be fellow (for Wood) Rolling Stones habitués Ian Stewart, Bobby Keys, and Jim Price, Micky Waller (Wood’s fellow member in the Jeff Beck Group of the late ‘60s), and Grease Band member Bruce Rowland to name but a few. As for the music, much of it has a rustic, rural feel in keeping with the film’s setting, which follows the misadventures of a recluse who rents a ramshackle farm in the Canadian countryside, with some nods (“Woody’s Thing”) towards the blues-rock Wood would explore with Keith Richards in the Stones. But without a doubt the highlight is Lane’s “Just for a Moment,’ which is here in both vocal and instrumental versions; it’s a prime example of the wistful roots-rock that made Lane’s post-Faces solo career so compelling. Richie Unterberger’s liner notes examine this little-known detour in the careers of two British rock legends…fascinating for Faces and Stones fans!

    Grateful Dead: Road Trips Vol. 4 No. 3--Denver '73 (3 CD-Set)

    Denver was always one of the Dead’s favorite stops, and the pair of shows they played there on the hallowed Fall 1973 tour were a high time indeed. This 3-CD set—which has never before been released at retail—offers the complete November 21, 1973 show along with some choice excerpts from the night before, all beautifully recorded by Kidd Candelario and mastered by Jeffrey Norman in HDCD sound. Appropriately enough for the setting, the first set is laced with cowboy tunes like “Jack Straw,” “Mexicali Blues,” and “Big River” (a particularly good rendition), but the real revelation is the second set, which launches into an unprecedented and seamless 62-minute medley of “Mississippi Half-Step Uptown Toodeloo”/”Playing in the Band”/”El Paso”/”Playing in the Band”/”Wharf Rat”/”Playing in the Band” (three times!)/”Morning Dew.” Wow! The November 20 material at the end of disc three is quite worthy as well, highlighted by an adventurous “The Other One.” The 16-page full-color booklet features notes by Blair Jackson. A keeper!
