Rick Nelson


 

Rick Nelson: The Complete Epic Recordings. 2 CD Set. 

• First-Ever Comprehensive Collection of Rick Nelson's Epic Recordings

• American Debut of 11 Tracks

• American CD Debut of 12 Tracks

• Produced and Annotated by Rick Nelson Expert James Ritz

• Posthumous Overdubs of Memphis Sessions Removed under Richard Weize's Supervision

Rick Nelson’s short, late-‘70s tenure at the Epic label was an exceptionally creative and productive period for him, but you wouldn’t know it by what has been released, especially in this country. He recorded three albums’ worth of material, but only one, 1977’s Intakes, was released during his lifetime; the tracks he laid down the next year met a much less kind fate.

MARCH 2012 REISSUES

REAL GONE MUSIC MARCH 2012 REISSUES INCLUDE B.J. THOMAS’ THE COMPLETE SCEPTER SINGLES, DAVID AXELROD, RICK SPRINGFIELD, FRANKIE AVALON, WISHBONE ASH AND THE TUBES. 

 Also, Clint Eastwood’s Cowboy Favorites to be reissued on vinyl for first time.

LOS ANGELES, Calif. — Real Gone Music, the reissue label that has won many critical kudos in its initial months of operation, has announced its March 2012 releases. Featured are B.J. Thomas’ The Complete Scepter Singles, Frankie Avalon’s Muscle Beach Party: The United Artists Sessions, The Tubes’ Young & Rich/Now, Rick Springfield’s Beginnings..., David Axelrod’s Messiah, Wishbone Ash’s Live Dates II and Clint Eastwood’s Rawhide’s Clint Eastwood Sings Cowboy Favorites.

From his 1966 recording of Hank Williams’ “I’m So Lonesome I Could Cry” through his 1972 double-sided hit single “That’s What Friends Are For”/”Happier Than the Morning Sun,” B.J. Thomas enjoyed a string of hits rivaled by few artists of that time. And the fact that he did this on an indie label, Scepter, makes the achievement even more impressive. Various compilations of Thomas’ Scepter sides have come and gone. But Real Gone’s 44-track anthology is the first to offer A- and B-sides of every one of the artists’ Scepter singles, including his 19 hits. Many of the B-sides never appeared on albums. DJ/journalist Michael Ragogna wrote the notes, which feature quotes from Thomas.

David Axelrod

ORDER NOW!

• First Reissue of Cult Composer/ Arranger/Producer David Axelrod's 1971 Rock Version of Handel's Messiah

• Conducted by Jazz Legend Cannonball Adderley

• Original "Unifold" Art Included with New Liner Notes

Having already set a Catholic Mass to psychedelic guitar in 1967 with the Electric Prunes album Mass in F Minor, in 1971 legendary arranger/producer David Axelrod went for Baroque and set Georg Friedrich Handel’s signature work Messiah to contemporary instrumentation as well. But he didn’t do it alone—frequent collaborator Julian “Cannonball” Adderley conducted the orchestra (the two were next to team on the cult classic concept albums Soul Zodiac and Soul of the Bible).

Frankie’s late-‘50s/early-‘60s recordings practically define an era in pop music.   But while there have been countless reissues of his much-loved Chancellor hits, his later recordings have had sand kicked in their face when it comes to the CD era...including many performances that offer solid evidence of Frankie's blossoming maturity as a vocalist.

Rick Springfield: Beginnings… ORDER NOW!

• Rick Springfield's Long-Lost Debut Solo Album, on CD for the First Time

• Includes the Hits "Speak to the Sky" and "What Would the Children Think"

• Features Original Gatefold Art • New Liner Notes and Photos

You would think that the debut solo album—sporting two hits, no less!—from one of the ‘80s’ biggest heartthrobs would have been reissued long ago, but this 1972 Capitol release was indeed the “beginnings” of a series of misadventures in the music business that were to plague Rick Springfield until he broke through in the early ‘80s with “Jessie’s Girl” and General Hospital.

Wishbone Ash

One of our most popular releases to date has been Wishbone Ash’s Live Dates II, and no wonder—it’s one of the best and best-sounding live albums of the ‘80s. And the man behind much of that sound was also the man behind the Gibson Flying V, Mr. Andy Powell, one of the group’s two original guitarists and one of the truly great blues-rock axemen (Rolling Stone voted him among the Top 20 Guitarists of All Time). Now, Andy has put down his axe and picked up his pen to sign 50 CD booklets, which we are offering to the first 50 customers to buy Live Dates II from us. You’d have to be “F.U.B.B.” to pass this deal up!

Wishbone Ash: Live Dates II CD ORDER NOW!

• Classic Live Album Never Before Released in the U.S. In Any Format

• Includes the Bonus Material That Only Appeared on First 25,000 Copies Pressed

• Features Original Gatefold Art and New Liner Notes by Scott Schinder

• The Definitive Document of the Andy Powell-Laurie Wisefield- Martin Turner-Steve Upton Line-Up

• 79 Minutes of Twin-Guitar Magic

When band has not one, not two, but three releases entitled Live Dates, it’s a pretty good bet that the band in question is pretty good in concert.

The Tymes were one of the top R&B vocal groups on the star-studded Cameo Parkway roster, and the success of this album, which went to #15 on the charts on the strength of the #1 smash title track and the #7 hit Wonderful! Wonderful!, bears eloquent testimony to that fact. But what makes this album really special is that, unlike many LPs of the era, it really is an album

BILL MEDLEY: BILL MEDLEY 100% / SOFT AND SOULFUL

 Bill Medley: 100%/Soft and Soulful   ORDER NOW!

With this Real Gone Music release we celebrate one of the great bass voices in all of popular music, that of one-time Righteous Brother Bill Medley, who had just split from Bobby Hatfield when he recorded these two solo albums for MGM in 1968 and 1969, respectively. Fans who swoon over the Righteous Brothers’ blue-eyed soul sound will find a lot to like here, as these two records feature the same blend of pop and R&B styles that graced their classic sides, all backed by the kind of production value you’d expect from a guy who learned some studio chops from Phil Spector (and had some of his own, as Medley himself produced some of the Righteous Brothers’ biggest hits). Bill Medley 100% is the more pop-oriented of the two; it features two chart hits, the Goffin-King song I Can’t Make It Alone and the Mann-Weil tune Brown-Eyed Woman, while Soft and Soulful, as the title indicates, stuck closer to Medley’s soul roots with songs like the gospel-tinged hit Peace Brother Peace. Neither of these albums have ever been on CD, and appear here on a single CD inside a snazzy four-panel, full-bleed wallet with liner notes and photos.

GRATEFUL DEAD: Dick’s Picks Vol. 32—Alpine Valley Music Theatre, East Troy, WI 8/7/82 (2-CD Set) This 1982 date gets off to a flying start with the unusual medley sandwiching Sugaree between two renditions of The Music Never Stopped, and presents another rare pairing of Jesse Fuller’s Beat It On Down the Line and the Memphis Jug Band’s On the Road Again, two songs that were part of the Dead’s repertoire way back in the mid-‘60s when they were known as The Warlocks. That’s set one; set two is mainly devoted to a ferocious medley of Playing in the Band/Drums/Space/The Wheel/Playing in the Band/Morning Dew. The complete show on two discs, from one of the Dead’s (and Deadheads’) favorite venues!

Glen Campbell: Live In Japan

Glen Campbell: Live in Japan  ORDER NOW!

With Glen Campbell playing to sold-out audiences around the world on his Farewell Tour, we thought the time was right to bring out this long-lost gem from his back catalog, a 1975 concert that was recorded and released only in Japan! Glenn is at the peak of his powers here, pulling favorites from his vaunted songbook while displaying his usual unerring taste in covers (Conway Twitty’s “It’s Only Make Believe,” Paul Anka’s “My Way,” even an adrenaline-pumping take on the “William Tell Overture”), backed by a band that includes drummer Bob Felts, bassist Billy Graham and pianist Dennis McCarthy as well as a Japanese musical assembly nicknamed The Coming Home Orchestra in honor of Glen’s Vietnam-era anthem that became one of his biggest hits over there.
