Germs, Grateful Dead, Jerry Reed, Mick Fleetwood's Zoo and More in May (A Top Story)


.
On Tuesday Germs, Grateful Dead, Jerry Reed, Mick Fleetwood's Zoo and More in May was a top story. Here is the recap: Real Gone Music have announced releases in May from The Germs, D?Rocs, Jerry Reed, Mick Fleetwood's Zoo, Terry Knight & The Pack, Chubby Checker, The Orlons and Grateful Dead's Dick's Picks, Volume 29. Conqueroo sent over these details:

Real Gone Music enters its first Spring with a potpourri of reissues that are definitely not garden variety, with releases ranging from hardcore punk to power pop to Motor City rock 'n' roll, doo-wop and Summer of Love fixtures the Grateful Dead, all due in late May. The only album by seminal Los Angeles punkers The Germs, (GI), will be reissued alongside the D?rocs' self-titled album, Jerry Reed's The Unbelievable Guitar and Voice of Jerry Reed/Nashville Underground, I'm Not Me by Mick Fleetwood's Zoo, plus twofers from Terry Knight & the Pack (Terry Knight & the Pack/Reflections), Chubby Checker (It's Pony Time/Let's Twist Again), The Orlons (The Wah-Watusi/South Street) and Cameo Parkway Vocal Groups, Vol. 1. And if that's not enough to put in one's pipe and smoke, the Grateful Dead's Dick's Picks series continues with the six-CD set Dick's Picks Vol. 295/19/77 Fox Theatre Atlanta, GA 5/21/77 Lakeland Civic Center Arena Lakeland, FL.

Named after a breed of hog known for being great producers with oversized ears and genitalia, the D?rocs were the brainchild of Scott Mathews and Ron Nagle. Mathews had played at the Fillmore with Elvin Bishop at the age of 15, formed a band (Ice) with future Journey lead singer Steve Perry, and, with the guidance of music industry legends Jack Nitszche and David Rubinson, was one of the music industry's most sought-after session men and producers. Nagle, meanwhile, had been the main singer-songwriter and keyboard player in the Mystery Trend and had released a cult classic solo album produced by Nitszche, Bad Rice. Together, the two wrote songs for platinum-certified artists and in 1979 released their own LP, which received a five-star rating in Rolling Stone and scored some European hits. For the first time, with Mathews' and Nagle's cooperation, the legendary album will be reissued on CD with no fewer than eight unreleased "bone us" tracks, complete with liner notes by Gene Sculatti. In addition, Real Gone will manufacture a 500-unit, limited-edition vinyl pressing in an appropriately porcine shade of pink with the original track listing and album packaging intact. Power pop fans will agree it's time to bring home the bacon. - more on this story
