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.
So visit our site regularly for news of new titles, let us know what you think, even give us suggestions for what we should release. Real Gone Music is a label of the people, by the people, for the people.
"Get real gone…for a change!"
