First Two Laura Nyro Albums To Be Reissued In 2CD Mono Set – A Little Magic, A Little Kindness

One of my favorite female singers from the ’60s and ’70s was Laura Nyro. A creator of great music that found more chart action with other bands and singers’ versions than her own, Laura Nyro still commanded a genuine high respect. It always irked me that few knew of her genius. In fact, it is the love I had for Laura Nyro that consistently leads me to female singers like Marissa Nadler, who bears a striking visual resemblance to Ms Laura Nyro.

When labels return to her music, I’m always a bit overjoyed. The news that Real Gone Music will revisit Laura Nyro via Second Disc Records is a great bit of news. It also helps that Second Disc Records is helmed by highly respected friends of mine, Joe Marchese, and Mike Duquette, both who also run The Second Disc website.

The new 2CD album is called A Little Magic, A Little Kindness – The Complete Mono Albums Collection. It will feature two of Nyro’s early albums, More Than A New Discovery (1967), and Eli And the Thirteenth Confession (1968), a distributed promo Mono set. In addition to the original music, there are three bonus tracks which include the uncensored “Stoney End”, and “Eli’s Coming” as the album’s single, and “Save The Country”, the non-LP single.

A Little Magic, A Little Kindness – The Complete Mono Albums Collection is newly remastered for this release. This set will include a 24-page booklet with photos, credits, and a liner notes penned by Joe Marchese.

The Epic Archives Vol. 1 (1975-1979) With Cheap Trick Rarities Expected In April

In the late ’70s, Rock produced a quartet of unusual rockers in Cheap Trick. By the time of their second album, the band had appealed to a fast growing fanbase, which would  get exponentially larger by their live release of At Budokan. In fact, their rise to popularity was world-wide rather than the usual one country fixation that happens to many bands regardless of their country of origin. Also, in a nice twist to the usual stories of premature dismantling, Cheap Trick is STILL touring, STILL recording.

Over the years, Bun E Carlos (currently the one element of the original band that is at odds with the entire unit) had accumulated a treasure chest of recordings and live tapes. Much of the recordings he has archived include outtakes, live tracks, alternate versions of well-known songs, and a collection of demos, all of which show up in an upcoming volume of Cheap Trick essentials.

On April 28, Real Gone Music will release the first volume of collected rarities in The Epic Archives Vol. 1 (1975-1979) for Cheap Trick. And with the track list, it’s readily apparent that it is an essential for Cheap Trick fans. There’s a lot on here, folks. And with a potential following volume, more that we’d be delighted to have.

The album will feature 18 rarities. These include three demos before their Epic Records deal (“Come On, Come On”, “Southern Girls”, and “Taxman, Mr Thief”), two live Whisky performance tracks (“You’re All Talk”, “Goodnight”), and a wealth of excellent treasure pieces (see track-list). The booklet will feature rare photos from the period, while the music found on this Epic Archives set will be newly remastered (Vic Anesini). This will be issued on CD.

Thanks, Real Gone Music!

Real Gone Music To Release 2CD Collection Of Eddie Money, The Complete Hits And More!

Eddie Money - The Complete Hits And More!Can you imagine the thrill of leaving behind a job for the chase of Rock and Roll fame? And getting it? That’s the pursuit story of Eddie Money, who left behind a job with the police department of NYC for the unlikely dream of becoming a Rock star. And not just any Rock start either. Out of the gate, he achieved multi-platinum success with his debut Columbia Records. He established his career with three strong singles from that 1977 self-titled first album, (“Two Tickets To Paradise”, “Baby, Hold On”, “You’ve Really Got A Hold On Me”). That album was followed up by his equally strong 1978 release, Life For The Taking, which generated “Can’t Keep A Good Man Down”, and “Maybe I’m A Fool” as high charting singles.

Eddie Money began to lose his influence with the release of his third album, Playing For Keeps (1980) but still charted some singles. From his debut through his 1999 studio set, Ready Eddie (he released an album of covers in 2007 amusingly titled Wanna Go Back – don’t we all?!), Eddie Money kept our interest in one level or another of his long career.

On October 7, Real Gone Music will release The Complete Hits And More! It will contain 35 newly remastered tracks that explore the trail of charting songs released by Eddie Money, including the live tracks from his promo-only Livin’ It Up EP. The collection will provide new notes, and added photos in the set’s new booklet.

And finally, Foghat is releasing a new album on June 24. And while I have mixed feelings about this, especially this one, I can understand that this is not a matter of people not getting along. Rather, it is a continuation of an impossible situation. I don’t have to like it. Personally, I’d rather they just had recorded brand new songs instead of re-recording classics for whatever reason was needed to do so. Nevertheless, for those fans who continue on regardless, Under The Influence is on the way. Get the full scoop here.

Review: Dave Mason: The Columbia Years – The Definitive Anthology

Dave Mason The Columbia Years The Definitive AnthologyAfter Dave Mason‘s sporadic tenure with Traffic, he gave fans of his voice and songwriting talents a reason to hang around with his solo works. Beginning with his first solo album, he was to gradually build upon his fan base with increasingly popular albums like his debut on Blue Thumb Records. After a time, Mason signed with Columbia Records and recorded seven albums for the label. One of those was the highly successful Let It Flow album, originally issued in 1977. That album provided three hit singles (“Let It Flow”, “So High (Rock Me Baby And Roll Me Away)”, “We Just Disagree”) as well as popular FM favorites (“Seasons”, “Mystic Traveler”).

To consider the greatness of Dave Mason outside his career with Traffic, one would have to take into strong account his works with Columbia Records. To that end, Real Gone Music, a popular compiler of classic songs and albums by neglected artists, has compiled a 30-track anthology of Dave Mason’s work as found on the Columbia label.

What stands out about The Columbia Years – The Definitive Anthology is the excellent selection of every album released on that label. Of course, the hits weren’t ignored, especially from the Let It Flow gem. But I was pleasantly surprised to see “Seasons” included simply because it was a superb track. And those kinds of under appreciated gems tend to get left off such compilations as this one. However, Real Gone has found it right to not ignore the obvious.

Every Columbia album is represented with carefully extracted songs. From the beginning of the Columbia era with It’s Like You Never Left (1973) all the way through the end of it with Old Crest On A New Wave (1980), the archivists at Real Gone Music selected a brilliant collection for inclusion into their 2CD Anthology. For me, there really isn’t a bad Dave Mason track. There may be some that I listen to less than others. I actually even enjoyed his one album tenure with Fleetwood Mac on their 1995 Time album.

Apart from the excellent selection of tracks, there is a rich 24-page booklet. The booklet is of heavy gloss paper giving it a sturdy construction to last a long, long time. In side the booklet is a parade of full-page album covers, an essay that explores each Columbia album in close detail, and two pages of track-listings and full credits. The CDs are stamped with the classic era red Columbia label that featured the circle of the Columbia logo at the outside of the label. Inside the jewel case that houses both CDs, there is a montage of each album and their respective red Columbia labels.

Simply put, this is a welcome anthology for the serious Dave Mason fan. You will not only get the more popular tunes from each album, but you also get the obvious great ones, the ones that were not as anointed as the others. And that what makes me appreciate the work that Real Gone Music does as they reissue excellent albums and anthologize forgotten artist. I have quite a list of my own that I’d love to see them revisit.

Dave Mason: The Columbia Years – The Definitive Anthology is indeed a remastered must have. Pure goodness!

2CD Dan Fogelberg Set, The Definitive Anthology, Set For May

Dan Fogelberg Definitive AnthologyThe music of Dan Fogelberg was enchanting, even haunting, over the fifteen-plus studio efforts he released over a 35-year period. From his excellent Home Free debut released in 1972 through his final album, Love In Time, released posthumously in 2009, Dan Fogelberg continuously changed the colors on his poetically dipped lyrical brushes. With a handful of serious charting singles, and many of his early albums in the 2-million plus sales category, Dan Fogelberg was heralded and appreciated as one of the finest of his period.

His best singles delivering album was The Innocent Age. Released in 1982, it produced four Top Ten tracks (“Same Old Lang Syne”, “Hard To Say”, “Leader Of The Band”, “Run for The Roses”). But for many, each album had its own charm. For me, that was Nether Lands, released in 1977. That album mixed country, classical, rock, ballads, and literal poetic beauty into one gorgeous set. For others, it’s his work after that album that defined him. And that was so. There was also his successful collaboration with Tim Weisberg that produced two classic albums (Twins Sons Of Different Mothers – 1978, No Resemblance Whatsoever – 1995), and generated two singles, both from the Twin Sons Of Different Mothers album (“The Power Of Gold”, “Tell Me To My Face”)

By the late ’80s, Dan Fogelberg had lost an audience (more or less) to the changes that ran through the ’80s. Nevertheless, he continued to be productive up to his death in 2007 from cancer.

On May 6, the fine personnel over at Real Gone Music will release a 2CD career-spanning collection of 28 tracks. All of the tracks on The Definitive Anthology are newly remastered by Vic Anesini. The set will provide a richly detailed booklet that includes new liner notes. Those notes will attend to each track found within the 2 CDs.

Dan Fogelberg is a classic gem fro an era of Rock and Roll that will never be repeated. And yet, he still feels timeless, certainly influential.

2CD The Columbia Years: The Definitive Anthology Featuring Dave Mason For March

Dave Mason The Columbia Years AnthologyThe real world pedigree of Dave Mason is immense when laid up against the music that he has been involved with as well as his own successful solo releases. With Traffic, he helped set the pace for the sounds of Rock during its embryonic periods. As time progressed, he wrote songs like “Feelin’ Alright” that has taken on a life of its own, and worked with many Rock and Roll luminaries of his time. But it was his solo work that established him solidly with die-hard Mason fans. His Columbia Records years were especially solid.

His entry with Columbia Records is the self-titled gem that went Gold. But it was his Let It Flow album that brought more interest to Mason. With the charting of three singles, (“So High (Rock Me Baby and Roll Me Away)”, “We Just Disagree”, “Let It Flow”), Let It Flow (1977) is a great point in the Dave Mason timeline.

Old Crest On A New Wave (1980) finished Dave Mason for Columbia.
