    Sleep In Safety

    Pressed On Ghastly Green Colored Vinyl


    Limited To 1000 Copies


    Formed from putrefying remnants of The Germs, The Consumers, The Bags, The Gun Club, and The Screamers among other L.A. punk outfits, 45 Grave were arguably the first American Goth/deathrock band and inarguably one of the best.


    Fronted by the Exene-meets-Vampirella vocal and visual stylings of Dinah Cancer (still one of the greatest stage names in a punk rock genre full of 'em), 45 Grave also featured Paul B. Cutler on guitar, Don Bolles on drums, Rob (Ritter) Graves on bass, and Paul Roessler on keyboards, and from that all-star line-up came 1983's Sleep in Safety, their lone studio release and only recording with the band's original members. Probably most famous for the first appearance of the horrifyingly graphic, true-crime track "Partytime," Sleep in Safety also offered the early MTV track "Evil" and the band "theme song" "45 Grave" among other blandishments for those who like their rock and roll with a side of the macabre.


    Both the LP and CD have been out of print for an eternity, and cost an arm and a leg; for our Real Gone Music exhumation of this classic record, we have "embalmed" two very special editions. On LP, we have preserved the original album's gatefold edition complete with lyrics and added a custom inner sleeve drawn from the band's very rare "A Tale of Strange Phenomena" press release-limited edition of 1000 in "Ghastly Green" vinyl!

    The Return Of The Living Dead Soundtrack

    Pressed On Black & Brown Tarman Colored Vinyl


    Limited To 1000 Copies


    There are zombies and then there are brain-eating zombies! And Return of the Living Dead was the film where brain-eating zombies got their first lease on, er, life. Co-written by John Russo, who was George Romero's writing partner on Night of the Living Dead, this 1985 quasi-sequel introduced more "splatstick" humor to the horror formula as well as the indelible image of ghouls groaning "Braainsss" as they shuffle along. All set to a KILLER score featuring the greatest punk and death rock bands of the era, including The Cramps, 45 Grave, The Flesh Eaters, The Damned, Roky Erickson, The Jet Black Berries, T.S.O.L. and SSQ. 1000 copies in black & brown Tarman vinyl...Braainsss!

    Bob Dylan (Mono) (Pre-Order)

    Bob Dylan On Numbered Limited Edition 180 Gram Mono 45RPM 2LP From Mobile Fidelity


    Understated 1962 Debut Launched Immeasurably Influential Career


    Album Stands as Clearest Connection to Dylan's Purist Folk Roots


    Ghosts of Woody Guthrie and Blues Legends Appear Throughout Recording of Originals and Covers


    Mastered From The Original Master Tapes And Strictly Limited To 3,000 Copies


    Mobile Fidelity Mono 45RPM 2LP Features Unparalleled Directness And Sound Dylan, Producers Originally Intended


    Made when mono was still king, Bob Dylan's self-titled 1962 debut is as understated of an entrance as any significant musician as ever made. Already well-versed in American roots music, Dylan simultaneously pays homage to tradition and extends it by putting his own stamp on classic material that metaphorically functions as the soil of our contemporary songs and styles. Free of ego, and performed with masterful conviction, Bob Dylan ranks with the debut efforts of similar artistic giants Elvis Presley and the Rolling Stones.


    Mastered from the original master tapes, pressed at RTI, and strictly limited to 3,000 copies, Mobile Fidelity's restored 180g mono 45RPM 2LP analog version brings the contents of this seminal release as closest as they've ever come to master tape-quality in the original mono configuration. Transparent to the source, the simple sounds of Dylan's voice, acoustic guitar, and harmonica take on lifelike perspective and directness-the husk and bark to which Robert Shelton referred in his now-legendary New York Times review of a Dylan appearance at Gerde's Folk City. MoFi has made possible an inexpensive time-traveling trip back to the Greenwich Village coffeehouses and folk clubs in which Dylan cut his teeth, albeit in much better fidelity and without any annoying background chatter. Wider grooves mean more information reaches your ears.


    As the preferred mix at the time of the recording, the mono version presents Dylan as he and his producers originally intended. Since the separation of the stereo versions isn't as sharp, the mono edition places Dylan's vocals in the heart of the musical action and as one with the accompaniment. It paints listeners an incredibly accurate portrait of the attention-getting, concrete mass of sound that features no artificial panning and straight-ahead immersion into the music. This is how almost everyone first heard this timeless album-making the mono mix all the more historically valuable and truthful.


    Much has been made of the commercial indifference that greeted the album upon its low-key release. Yet focusing on sales figures and the reaction of a public not yet hip to Dylan's name or music is to miss the forest for the trees. Distinguished from the era's other folk efforts by way of the determination, brazenness, and lived-through-this worldliness Dylan approaches the material and sings the songs, Dylan lays the groundwork for the path he'd soon trailblaze and everyone else would follow.


    By nodding to Woody Guthrie at the same time he completely re-imagines a sobering tune such as Blind Lemon Jefferson's See That My Grave Is Kept Clean, Dylan straddles the past and future. He also displays, with challenging authority and savant-like expertise, the ability to handle weighty topics such as death, sorrow, and lamentation with the vaudeville flair, bluesy mannerisms, and poignant command of an artist three times his age.


    As Dylan scholar and pop-culture critic Greil Marcus observed in 2010, Everybody knew Joan Baez and the Kingston Trio; if you knew Bob Dylan, you knew something other people didn't, something that soon enough everybody had to know. Within a year, an album could put an adjective in front of the singer's name as if it were already common coin. It all starts here.

    Mr. Clean: Winfield Parker At Ru-Jac

    First Ever Collection Of Parker's Classic Singles


    Pressed On Yellow Vinyl


    Ru-Jac Records, one of the nation's first African-American owned record labels, was formed in Baltimore in the early 1960s by Rufus Mitchell, who booked East Coast entertainment venues including Carr's Beach, a segregated summer resort near Annapolis. Ru-Jac was active into the 1970s and featured R&B, soul, funk, jazz and even rock acts. The most frequently recorded Ru-Jac artist was Winfield Parker.


    Parker cut 17 recordings for Ru-Jac, the 45s of which have fetched top dollar on the collectors market, as people have hungered for this vintage sound. When Omnivore Recordings acquired Ru-Jac in 2015, even more recordings were discovered. The original singles, along with six previously unissued tracks, are finally available as Mr. Clean: Winfield Parker At Ru-Jac. Omnivore Recordings will release the collection March 25, 2016, on CD and digital. The LP will be available June 10, first limited-edition pressing on orange vinyl.


    From "My Love" to "I Love You Just The Same" to the collection's title track, "Mr. Clean," this compilation presents Parker at his most soulful, along with alternate takes, demos, backing tracks and songs unheard since they were first laid to tape over five decades ago. With mastering and restoration from Grammy® Award-winner Michael Graves, they sound better than ever.


    In 2013, the Global Entertainment Media Association honored Winfield with a Golden Mic Honor, alongside contemporaries like Gamble & Huff, the Three Degrees, Barbara Mason, and others. He is celebrating 58 years in the music business in 2016, and the material on Mr. Clean: Winfield Parker At Ru-Jac showcases the root of that legendary career, paving the way for a new generation of appreciation, re-examination, and soul.


    The Winfield Parker release is the first to be realized out of Omnivore's acquisition of Ru-Jac Records and its publishing assets. Omnivore Recordings' Cheryl Pawelski says, "Omnivore is so pleased to have acquired Ru-Jac Records and its accompanying publishing entities, Diddy Bop and Ru-Jac. Authentic East Coast '60s soul is impossible to resist, and we're looking forward to the first release, Winfield Parker's Mr. Clean: Winfield Parker At Ru-Jac with more to follow. By the end of the year we're hoping to have at least one additional artist collection available, as well as a label overview. The Ru-Jac story centers around its founder, Rufus Mitchell, a promoter of live shows in the Baltimore area, including one of the first African American-controlled beaches, Carr's Beach. The 45s that spun out of Ru-Jac offer a tantalizing, never-before told, audio history of a time and place that we can't wait for everyone to hear."

    Brown Reason To Live (Out Of Stock)


    Colored Vinyl


    This is where it all began for these acid casualty reality trippers. Brown Reason To Live is their very first release; it came out in 1983. Here it is on vintage thick wax. 12 vinyl, 7-song ep- their first classic slab o' wax, and still as crazed and lysergic as ever! P.S.- And the answer to the timeless question, what speed is this meant to be played on? It's meant to be played at 69 rpm, of course! (But if your turntable doesn't have a 69 setting, try it on 45 instead.) 'I am the ultimate god!' followed by the sounds of a man nearly breaking down in tears- it's one of the most emotional and honest moments in rock history. Oddly enough it's at the end of a song called 'The Shah Sleeps in Lee Harvey's Grave' off of the superb Butthole Surfers debut EP 'Brown Reason To Live.' It's that accidental shift from extreme bravado to mournful regret that most bands only dream of pulling off, and it's all courtesy of some of America's most drug-addled pranksters. The following 6 tracks put experimental punk on the map. No one was quite sure what to make of it. Was it psychedelia, was it punk rock, or was it just crap? But everyone was certain that it was nothing like anything else. Insane, but not cheesy, lyrics that sounded passionate while the music sometimes grooved, rocked, irritated, or just became noise... this sounds brilliant. Drums that pound and words have the clarity required to catch such oddball lines as 'I got a stiff upper lip because I'm half dead' and 'they shot the pope's ass... and I feel good! Kids, everyone, this is required listening. This is their peak... - Punk Planet Gibby Haines' [sic] insane crew started life on AT with this appropriately scatologically-themed mini-album [Brown Reason To Live]. Song titles include The Revenge of Anus Presley- enough said.
