Glen Campbell, Bill Medley, Grateful Dead Rarities Set For Release (A Top Story)
On Wednesday Glen Campbell, Bill Medley, Grateful Dead Rarities Set For Release was a top story. Here is the recap: (conqueroo) 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 Picks volumes 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. - more on this story
