Margaret Whiting

Together with Peggy Lee, Margaret Whiting was the only female vocalist to have hits in the ‘40s, ‘50s and even in the late ‘60s, when the rock and roll sound sidetracked the career of most of her peers. But unlike Peggy, Margaret’s ‘60s recordings—made with producer Arnold Goland and released on the London label—have remained unissued in the digital era. Now, Real Gone Music, in conjunction with the Whiting estate, is reissuing Margaret’s COMPLETE London recordings in two 25-track volumes, with notes by highly esteemed music critic Will Friedwald and pictures from the Whiting family’s private archive. The pop vocal find of the year!

  • Margaret Whiting's Complete '60s Recordings for the London Label, on CD for the First Time
  • Wheel Of Hurt Hit the Charts in 1967 and Its Title Tune Was a Top 40 Hit
  • Two Releases Feature a Total of 49 Songs and Seven Chart Hits
  • Includes 13 Rare Single Sides and Three Unreleased Tracks
  • Notes by Will Friedwald
  • Includes Photos Supplied from the Whiting Family Archives
  • All Three Albums Remastered from Original Stereo Master Tapes by Mike Milchner at Sonic Vision

This Dick’s Picks volume, which presents excerpts of the Dead’s March 23, 1974 show at the Cow Palace, is not only historic but a hot show to boot! First, the history: this concert marked the first appearance of the famous (or infamous, depending on which Deadhead you ask) Wall of Sound concert PA, with the crystal-clear sound to show for it; it also features the debut of two songs, “Cassidy” and “Scarlet Begonias,” that were to become staples of the band’s repertoire.

BARBARA & ERNIE: Prelude To… CD

Totally obscure, utterly beguiling and shockingly relevant to today’s music scene, this 1971 pairing of guitarist Ernie Calabria and soul singer Barbara Massey is a good example of why reissue labels exist. Prior to this recording, Calabria had played on sessions for Harry Belafonte, Nina Simone and Anita Carter, while Massey had sung backup for Jimi Hendrix, Quincy Jones, Herbie Hancock and Cat Stevens among others.

THE HELLO PEOPLE: Fusion. CD

As one of the very few (and possibly only) denizens of that musical subgenre known as “mime rock,” the Hello People could easily be dismissed as a gimmick act, but there was a lot more to them than just whiteface. Their roots actually trace back to the father of French mime, Etienne Decroux.

FREDDIE KING: The Complete King/Federal Singles (2-CD Set)

Rolling Stone ranked him the #15 greatest guitarist of all time. His sharp treble tone, hooky melodic licks and innovative fingerpicking style—using metal banjo picks on electric guitar—were a profound influence on such British guitar gods as Eric Clapton, Jeff Beck, Peter Green and Mick Taylor. And his live performances were so incendiary, so unstoppable—and his build so imposing—that he was nicknamed “The Texas Cannonball.”

RICK WAKEMAN: No Earthly Connection CD

 Coming on the heels of his epic Journey to the Centre of the Earth and The Myths and Legends of King Arthur and the Knights of the Round Table projects, erstwhile Yes keyboardist Rick Wakeman’s 1976 LP No Earthly Connection was a relatively stripped-down affair with respect to its orchestration, employing the six-piece English Rock Ensemble (most notably vocalist Ashley Holt, guitarist John Dunsterville, bassist Roger Newell and percussionist Tony Fernandez) for a metaphysical exploration of the musical essence of mankind’s soul.

BORDERLINE: Sweet Dreams and Quiet Desires/The Second Album CD

Composed of brothers Dave and Jon Gershen and Jim Rooney, Borderline was at the center of the fertile ‘70s Woodstock scene. And when we say the center, we mean the center; not only did Rooney manage Albert Grossman’s Bearsville Sound Studio, where Sweet Dreams and Quiet Desires was recorded in 1972, but it seems like virtually every famous musician in a 10-mile radius played on the record, including Neil Young’s favorite sideman Ben Keith, fiddlers supreme Vassar Clements and Ken Kosek, drummer Billy Mundi, saxophonist David Sanborn, Band producer John Simon on piano and Band members Richard Manuel and Garth Hudson (billed as “Dick Handle” and “Campo Malaqua,” respectively) on keyboards.
