Vicki Lawrence: The Night the Lights Went Out in Georgia—The Complete Bell Recordings CD

Right after our recent release Vicki Lawrence: The Night the Lights Went Out in Georgia—The Complete Bell Recordings CD was shipped to our customers and to retail, we found much to our chagrin that the disc skipped on many (but not all) compact disc players. We listen to a "reference master" for all of our releases, and the reference master for this one sounded perfect (we wouldn't have approved the project for release if it didn't). But somewhere in the manufacturing process an error occurred, and to their credit our manufacturer has hastily repressed the CD for us to ship out to our customers. If you ordered the CD directly from us at www.realgonemusic.com we will automatically send you a free replacement disc. Furthermore, even if you ordered from another source than www.realgonemusic.com, we are willing to send you a replacement disc as well in good faith. Please email us at orders@realgonemusic.com any type of proof of purchase (a scan or picture of the receipt, an email of the receipt or even a picture of your CD is fine-- just get us something) Also include your mailing address and we will mail you a free copy of the replacement disc only (we will not send a new jewel case, booklet and tray card in these cases). We stand by our label and our releases and we sincerely apologize about this-- it truly was some sort of manufacturing gremlin that got us this time.

    Vikki Carr

    AVAILABLE June 3, 2014 PRE-ORDER COMING SOON

    VIKKI CARR: The First Time Ever (I Saw Your Face) (Expanded Edition). CD

    She was born Florencia Bisenta de Casillas Martinez Cardona in El Paso, Texas, but the world would know her better as Vikki Carr, the four-time Grammy-winner whom no less an authority than Dean Martin once called “The best girl singer in the business” and Ethel Merman singled out as being “more impressed with her performance than by any young singer.”

    Sentimental, vivacious and stunningly dramatic, the voice of Vikki Carr is one of American pop music’s most versatile, too.  During her long, glittering career, she has tackled jazz, pop, blues and country with equal aplomb. In addition to her extraordinary American pop music career of the 1960s and early ‘70s, punctuated by such signature hits as “It Must Be Him,” “The Lesson,” “With Pen in Hand” and “Eternity,” Carr has gone on to become one of the most popular and successful Spanish-language singers in the world, a pioneer predating Linda Ronstadt and an acolyte of Eydie Gorme’s and Connie Francis’ beloved international music tradition. 

     We at Real Gone Music are thrilled to add Vikki to our  artist roster with The First Time Ever (I Saw Your Face) (Expanded Edition), a first time ever reissue of her classic 1972 album produced by Snuff Garrett and arranged by Al Capps. The release features no less than eleven bonus tracks (seven singles, two unreleased sides and a pair of holiday favorites) highlighted by Vikki’s long-unavailable hit version of “The Big Hurt” and captivating covers of numerous ‘70s smashes, with notes by David St. Mark drawn from an extensive interview with the artist herself as well as her colleagues.   Mastered at Sony’s own Battery Studios in NYC and featuring copious rare photos—one of this year’s big pop vocal finds!

    AVAILABLE April 29, 2014 PRE-ORDER NOW!

    CANNONBALL ADDERLEY: The Black Messiah (2-CD Set)

    In 1970, Cannonball Adderley recorded a series of concerts that resulted in three cult classic live albums, of which this double-album—produced, like other landmark double albums of the time like Soul Zodiac and Soul of the Bible, by David Axelrod—is the hardest to find. It captures Cannonball and the Quintet (brother Nat Adderley on cornet, Roy McCurdy on drums, Walter Booker on bass and George Duke—fresh from replacing Joe Zawinul, who had left to form Weather Report—on keyboards) at the forefront of the burgeoning electronic jazz-rock fusion movement, sounding at times every bit like the early ‘70s band of Cannonball’s former bandleader Miles Davis, except maybe even funkier and more out there.

    This new 2-CD, 50-track set from Real Gone Music offers folks a chance to own some of the most revered—and rare—recordings in the history of American music. In 1946 and 1947, Bob Wills and His Texas Playboys cut nearly 400 full songs for Tiffany Music, Inc., recordings that came to be known as the Tiffany Transcriptions. These recordings were distributed only to radio stations on 16-inch transcription discs, and were intended for airplay as part of a syndicated radio show featuring Wills and the Playboys. However, the transcriptions proved to be a financial failure, and Tiffany Music, Inc. folded by the end of the ‘40s, seemingly relegating the Tiffany Transcriptions to obscurity (and leaving over 200 songs in the can).

      Doris Day: Music, Movies & Memories. CD


      Here’s the perfect 90th birthday present for Doris Day fans: a brand-new album of Day rarities spanning the 1940s through 1980s, offering tracks that have never appeared on an album or compact disc as well as several precious, recently-discovered gems. Among the previously unreleased titles are a 1947 rendition of the standard "Can't Help Lovin' That Man," a beautiful ballad from the '50s entitled "How Well I Know," and five tracks from Doris’ final recording session in 1985 including an amazing, jazz-flavored outtake performance of “Everyone’s Gone to the Moon.”  Also featured is Doris' last-ever film song, "Soft as the Starlight" (from 1966’s The Glass Bottom Boat) in stereo, plus a duo of soundtrack selections from her musical Young at Heart, an unreleased alternate version of her signature 1956 million-selling smash "Que Sera, Sera (Whatever Will Be, Will Be)" and three performances from Doris' 1970s CBS-TV variety specials, featuring superb interpretations of "The Way We Were," "The Gypsy in My Soul" and a medley that closes with "The 59th Street Bridge Song (Feelin' Groovy)." To cap things off, Doris reflects on her multi-faceted talents in a special promotional radio interview from the 1960s, retrieved from her personal archive. Plus liner notes with quotes from Doris, photos—there's literally just one way to describe this one-of-a-kind collection -- "it's magic!"

      DORIS DAY: Sings Her Great Movie Hits (Expanded Edition). CD

      When Doris Day burst onto the big screen with Romance on the High Seas in 1948, it was clear that a very special motion picture star was born. Warner Brothers and famed director Michael Curtiz recognized that the former Doris Mary Anne Kappelhoff possessed considerable talents and appeal beyond her big band vocalist background. Their judgment proved to be prescient: Doris racked up dozens of hit records during the 1940s, 1950s and 1960s, many of the songs coming from her film musicals and comedy outings which featured title tunes performed by Doris. Starting with “It’s Magic” from her movie debut, and continuing with hits like the Oscar-winning “Secret Love” from the western Calamity Jane alongside best-selling albums of songs from Love Me Or Leave Me and other cinematic outings, Doris enjoyed a dual career on records and film. Now, as part of its tribute to the legendary lady on her 90th birthday year, Real Gone presents the first-ever CD issue of the 1966 Columbia/Harmony album Doris Day: Sings Her Great Movie Hits, expanded with over a dozen bonus tracks (plus liner notes featuring quotes from Doris and photos) for a total of 24 classic Day performances. Focusing on the last half of her movie career, this anthology presents Doris in a pure pop mode, offering mostly upbeat opening tunes from the great comedies of the era that made her the #1 female box-office star throughout the early and mid-1960s. First and foremost are songs from the beloved trio of Day-Rock Hudson classics Pillow Talk, Lover Come Back and Send Me No Flowers, in addition to a pair of bouncy ditties from Day's pairings with Rod Taylor (Do Not Disturb and The Glass Bottom Boat). Doris even gets mod when rock-and-roll producer son Terry Melcher produces and co-writes "Move Over Darling," a top 10 UK hit arranged by another music legend, Jack Nitzsche. Every single Day movie from 1956-1967 in which she sang is represented here, starting with Doris' most beloved song (the original version of "Que Sera, Sera" from Alfred Hitchcock's The Man Who Knew Too Much) on through the composition "Caprice," inspired by the James Bond spoof of the same name. In film language, this is truly a long-overdue sequel to the million-selling Doris Day's Greatest Hits.

    Vicki Lawrence: The Night the Lights Went Out in Georgia--The Complete Bell Recordings. CD

    Carol Burnett wasn’t the only multi-talented regular on The Carol Burnett Show. Her protégé Vicki Lawrence (a.k.a. “Eunice” and “Mama”), actually did her one better by scoring a # 1 hit with “The Night the Lights Went Out in Georgia” on the Bell label in 1973. But Vicki’s big hit wasn’t the result of her talent alone. In 1972, she married the great songwriter Bobby Russell, who penned “Georgia” and hooked her up with the legendary producer “Snuff” Garrett and arranger Artie Butler.
