Jeremy Spencer: Jeremy Spencer (Expanded Edition). CD

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.

The Beckies: The Beckies CD

Real Gone Music answers the pleas of power pop fans worldwide with the first-ever CD release of this classic one-off album from The Beckies, the group led by Michael Brown of Left Banke, Montage, and Stories fame. Brown made a career out of melding classical motifs with rock, but here—on what would turn out to be the last project to which he made a significant contribution—the focus is definitely more on the latter. The Beckies fits right on the shelf with your Badfinger and Raspberries records, full of catchy tunes that in another era would have had a chance at significant radio play, but 1976 was the height of the disco craze, and therefore it sunk without a commercial trace.

Just how good were the three sets that comprised each show? Well, when LSD chemist and band benefactor Owsley Stanley produced the official release History of the Grateful Dead, Vol. 1 (Bear s Choice), he lifted portions of each night s first set and acoustic second set in assembling that record, yet there was enough (very) strong material left over to make Dick s Picks Vol. 4 one of the greatest live albums in the Grateful Dead catalog.

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!
