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.

REAL GONE MUSIC'S JANUARY 2012 REISSUES 

REAL GONE MUSIC'S JANUARY 2012 REISSUES FEATURE
GLEN CAMPBELL LIVE, MAGGIE & TERRE ROCHE, BILL MEDLEY, JODY MILLER, THE TYMES, MAYNARD FERGUSON, AND MORE GRATEFUL DEAD DICKS PICKS


Glen Campbell’s 1975 Live in Japan was never released in the U.S., 
while Bill Medley twofer chronicles his late ’60s
post-Righteous Brothers solo career

LOS ANGELES, Calif. — A never-before-released Glen Campbell live album, Bill Medley’s post-Righteous Brothers solo albums for MGM, a 1975 album by Maggie & Terre Roche of the Roches, a retrospective of country singer Jody Miller’s Epic Records years and two new Dick’s Picksvolumes from the Grateful Dead headline the January 2012 lineup for Real Gone Music, the new indie label helmed by reissue veterans Gordon Anderson and Gabby Castellana. The January rollout will also feature, as part of the label’s ongoing partnership with ABKCO Music & Records, Inc., The Tymes’ So Much in Love and the complete Cameo recordings of jazz trumpeter Maynard Ferguson.

The multi-talented Glen Campbell, who has enjoyed a 50-year career as singer, guitarist and television personality, is the recent recipient of much warm sentiment as he released his final album and embarked on his final tour. Campbell’s 1975 Live in Japan was originally issued only across the Pacific. The album will receive its worldwide CD release on January 24, 2011. Glen 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”). The album was released in a gorgeous gatefold package that Real Gone has faithfully reproduced along with other graphic elements. It’s a timely tribute to one of the great American music entertainers.

Also on January 24, Real Gone will release reissues from Bill Medley and Maggie & Terre Roche and a Jody Miller compilation. Bill Medley recorded two late ’60s albums for MGM Records — Bill Medley 100% and Soft & Soulful — after his split from fellow Righteous Brother Bobby Hatfield. Fans of the Righteous Brothers’ blue-eyed soul will find plenty to like as the two albums feature the act’s signature marriage of pop and R&B with the studio chops you’d expect from an artist who learned from Phil Spector (and himself produced some of the Righteous Brothers’ biggest hits).

You wouldn’t think the guy responsible for the ultimate bump- and-grind anthem “The Stripper” would also have arranged and conducted one of the all-time favorite Christmas albums of all time, but that just goes to show just how versatile a musician David Rose was.

? and the Mysterians

ABKCO Records, in conjuction with Real Gone Music, is proud to present the two albums released by Question Mark & the Mysterians on the Cameo label, pressed on 180-gram vinyl with the original artwork intact! Hailing from Saginaw, Michigan, this group of Mexican-American teenagers will forever be anointed as the garage band’s garage band with all the bonafides collectors of ‘60s cool cherish—the name, derived from a Japanese horror film; the sound, an insistent, three chord beat powered by that unmistakable Vox organ tone; and, of course, the sunglasses-shod Question Mark himself, who claims to have been born on Mars and lived among the dinosaurs in a past life. Though their signature hit, “96 Tears,” ranks as one of the most recognizable and beloved songs of the ‘60s, their two original albums have never come out on LP in this country since their original re- lease...till now!

THE GIRLS FROM PETTICOAT JUNCTION - SIXTIES SOUNDS

  • Rare singles and unreleased tracks from Linda Kaye Henning, Lori Saunders and Meredith MacRae, the three sisters on Petticoat Junction
  • All in debut stereo
  • Includes Petticoat Junction theme song, complete with train whistle
  • Released to coincide with the upcoming publication of Petticoat Junction—The History of Hooterville (Bear Manor Books) and DVD releases of Petticoat Junction and The Beverly Hillbillies

THE GIRLS FROM PETTICOAT JUNCTION - SIXTIES SOUNDS CD

When the classic comedy series Petticoat Junction premiered in 1963—on the heels of its sister series The Beverly Hillbillies—it became an immediate hit, ranking #4 for the season. The series ran for over 200 episodes through 1970 and became a popular fixture in syndication,TV Land and other nostalgic outlets.

Part of Petticoat Junction's huge popularity could be traced to the three lovely ladies who starred as sisters on the show: Linda Kaye Henning as Betty Jo Bradley, Lori Saunders as Bobbi Jo Bradley and Meredith MacRae as Billie Jo Bradley. Before there were Charlie's Angels, these girls were subtle sex symbols of the '60s, appealing to the guys while also being idolized by female viewers. 

During the long run of the sitcom, these "Hooterville Honeys" become a musical act, appearing at night clubs, fairs and other venues as well as television music-variety-talk programs with Johnny Carson, Ed Sullivan, Mike Douglas, Pat Boone and Dick Clark.

In 1968, the Petticoat Junction gals hit Liberty Recording Studios with music producer Joe Saraceno (The Ventures and The Sunshine Company) and the group of Los Angeles studio musicans known as the Wrecking Crew to lay down slices of quintessential '60s pop for Imperial Records. Among the selections were Neil Sedaka's country girl-meets Hollywood tune “Wheeling, West Virginia,” the Spanky & Our Gang favorite “If You Could Only Be Me” and covers of Jimmy Webb's classic “Up, Up & Away,” the Youngbloods' anthem “Let's Get Together (Love One Another)” and the jaunty Innocence hit “There's Got To Be A Word.”

THE GIRLS FROM PETTICOAT JUNCTION - SIXTIES SOUNDS compiles the long-unavailable and highly-collectible Imperial singles onto an album for the very first time, including previously unreleased tracks and debut stereo versions for every recording. Among the bonus material is a rare 1967 Capitol Records single by Meredith MacRae (“Who Needs Memories Of Him, Goodbye Love”) and the Petticoat Junction theme song sung by original TV series vocalist and co-composer Curt Massey, complete with train whistle.

This new CD will be cross-promoted with the upcoming publication of Petticoat Junction - The History of Hooterville (Bear Manor Books) and DVD releases of Petticoat Junction and The Beverly Hillbillies. Additionally, music videos of key songs will promote the album online and Linda Kaye Henning will be available for press interviews.

Petticoat Junction will also be saluted with a tribute at the Paley Center for the Media in Beverly Hills to coincide with the release of the CD and book.

Track listing:

1. IF YOU COULD ONLY BE ME; 2. WHEELING, WEST VIRGINIA; 3. GOODBYE LOVE; 4. THERE'S GOT TO BE A WORD (previously unreleased); 5. RAIN (previously unreleased) - with The Sunshine Company; 6. I'M SO GLAD THAT YOU FOUND ME; 7. WHO NEEDS MEMORIES OF HIM; 8. UP, UP & AWAY (previously unreleased) with The Sunshine Company; 9. LOVE ONE ANOTHER (Let's Get Together) (previously unreleased); 10.
