Grateful Dead: Dick’s Picks Vol. 30

Order Now!

Grateful Dead: Dick’s Picks Vol. 30—Academy of Music, New York City, NY 3/25 & 3/28/72 (4-CD Set)

That this 4-CD set kicks off with five tracks featuring blues legend Bo Diddley (taken from a 3/25/72 benefit for the Hell’s Angels) ought to be enough to get those Dead collector synapses firing.  That the last three discs present a complete show from March 28, 1972 that’s very Europe ’72 in its set list (with lots of early appearances of songs that ended up on that album) but with that extra edge that playing in New York always seemed to inspire in the band, all recorded by Dead sound whiz Betty Cantor-Jackson, explains why this Dick’s Picks volume met with almost universal acclaim upon its original release. Brought to you in HDCD sound, and making its debut in record stores. Double bonus: the Dead’s lone renditions of  How Sweet It Is (to Be Loved by You) and Are You Lonely for Me!

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.

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

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.
