 BELFEGORE: Belfegore (Deluxe Edition). CD

 Perhaps best known (until director David Fincher used “All That I Wanted” in his 2011 film adaptation of The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo) for opening for U2 on their Unforgettable Fire tour, Belfegore started out as a German new wave band, but by the time this, their 1984 major label debut for Elektra, came out, they had moved in a harder, more industrial direction.

ANDY WILLIAMS: The Complete Christmas Recordings (2-CD Set)

 Andy Williams didn’t gain the nickname “Mr. Christmas” for nothing. His first Christmas album, 1963’s The Andy Williams Christmas Album, remains one of the most popular holiday releases of all time, vaulting to #1 on the charts and staying there for nine weeks, and re-entering the Christmas charts 10 straight years after that, twice at #1! It also spawned a #1 holiday hit with his rendition of “White Christmas” and offered the definitive rendition of “It’s the Most Wonderful Time of the Year.” His second Christmas album, 1965’s Merry Christmas, also went to #1, this time for “only” three weeks, and re-entered the Christmas charts for five straight years, twice more at #1 (it, too, featured a Christmas charting single, the #18 hit version of “Do You Hear What I Hear?”). Yet, despite all this artistic and commercial success, there has never been a collection that compiled every seasonal side that Andy Williams recorded during his legendary career…until now!

    THE LORDS OF THE NEW CHURCH: The Lords of the New Church. CD

     Phrases don’t get much more oxymoronic than “punk supergroup,” but there’s no getting around it: The Lords of the New Church had a pedigree no punk band could match. Lead singer Stiv Bators had spearheaded the Dead Boys, one of America’s preeminent young, loud and snotty outfits, while guitarist Brian James was the guitarist for the Damned, who, along with the Pistols and the Clash, were in the first wave and first rank of Britain’s punk groups.

    Information Regarding Cat Mother "Albion Doo-Wah" CD

    Soon after the Cat Mother "Albion Doo-Wah" CD was shipped to our customers and to retail, it was brought to our attention that there was a mastering issue on this CD. Track 2, "Turkish Taffy," and track 9, "Albion Doo Wah," were at a distinctly lower volume than the rest of the tracks on the album. 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 process the studio (Battery Studios, Sony's own mastering studio) used to create the master, these two tracks dropped out in volume. Battery itself can't explain what happened, this has occurred perhaps one other time in their long, august history. To their credit, they (and Universal, the licensor) have worked with us to speedily supply a new master, and we are now happy to announce that we have a brand new, corrected pressing in house and ready to ship. If you ordered the CD directly from us at www.realgonemusic.com we will automatically send you a free replacement of the entire package including disc, booklet, tray card and jewel case. 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 a fluke, the first time this has happened in our careers of releasing thousands of records.
