Rare Music on CD

Artists United Against Apartheid- Sun City

This album was released in 1985, right on the heels of The Band Aid & USA for AFRICA records to battle world hunger.

This album is long out of print and now available to you here on CD.

Crack The Sky – Photoflamingo

One of the most rare of all CTS albums, this album was the last one to be released by Crack The Sky on a major label. Shortly after the release of this album, Lifesong Records, ( a division of Warner Bros ) folded up shop. Many CTS albums have followed, but on a wide variety of small independent labels. Why they never secured a major label again, is a mystery.

Track Listing;

Flamingo Prelude-Too Nice For That / Good Child Gone Wild
Last Time / A Girl Like You / Only Lonely / Is All We Know
Hide Away / The Other Guy / With The Morons - Photoflamingo


Crack The Sky – World in Motion

By 1983, Crack The Sky was about to go into a totally different direction with their music, World in Motion was the first step. Though it was another great album from CTS, it was not what fans were used to, and the sales of the album reflected as much. This was the first album the released after being dropped from their long time label, Lifesong, which soon went into bankruptcy. Originally released on the now defunct Criminal records label, this album faded into obscurity. One of the major reasons for the inability with fans to identify with this release was, CTS was also without Rick Witkowski, their lead guitarist since the beginning. Rick had left over artistic differences with John Palumbo. The two would later mend their fences for their 1989 tour.

Track Listing:

Breakdown  /  Skindiver  /  Needles & Pins  /  All Fly Away
Too Cold To Be Cool  /  Talking To Napoleon  /  The Stealer
This Time  /  Mr DJ  /  Telephone Lady  /  Lose That Girl
Working Boys  /  When I Grow Up



Cruel Shoes

The one shot, self-titled outing from this jazz-rock band was released in 1992, to small sales. The critics adored this album, as it was a side project from Crack The Sky front man John Palumbo, along with Alana Shor (formerly of Paper Cup), Nita Slater (formerly of Cry Monday), Mark Easly & Andy Shriver. It is sad that they only recorded this one album, as their sound was phenomenal. Supported by Palumbo’s expertise in songwriting, arrangements & production values, this band could have gone very far in the realm of jazz.

Track Listing:

New Wanderers / Dancing Shoes / Where Are The Angels
Baltimore Joe / Temporary Man / Walking On The Water
My Turn / Honeymoon Avenue / Edge of The Fire / Cooltown



David Jones

This is the ultra-rare album, by The Monkees own Davy Jones, released to very little acclaim or sales BEFORE The Monkees had even formed. This album was briefly featured on an episode of TV Show in a comical bit. A great example of pure 60’s, teen idol bubble gum music. Originally released on Colpix Records, this is the first time this album has been offered on CD. Enjoy this one Monkee fans!!!

Track Listing:

Dream Girl / Take Me to Paradise / My Dad / What Are We Going to Do?
This Bouquet / The Girl From Chelsea / Theme For A New Love

DC Star

Picture it……Washington D C , in the early 80’s, the new wave music scene is in full swing in the nation’s capital, but there is a long-haired heavy metal band on the rise to stardom. They call themselves DC Star, and they make quite a name for themselves in the Washington D C area. Their exposure secures them a deal to write, record & perform the famous “ It’s Miller Time “ jingle for the well known brewery, that is followed by a deal with Escape Records to record and release a 5 song EP ( at that time the safest & most economical way of introducing a new act to the public ). This EP is released with a twist though, as it was a vinyl picture disc, making it a rather expensive EP, at list price of  7.99 ( EPs were usually between 4.99 – 5.99 as opposed to albums which were 7.99 – 9.99 at that time ). Still the EP sold quite well, and lead to a 2nd lp a year or so later. Shortly after that D C Star disbanded. Here on CD ( not a picture disc ) is that 5 song EP. Including their FM Radio classic,” Is it You”.

Track Listing:

Is it You / Don’t Call Me Punk / Makin’ Time / No Friend of Mine / Wasted Time

Dolenz, Jones, Boyce & Hart

This was the only studio album released by this quartet. Though the tour to support this album was a booming success, most music fans showed no interest in this album when it was released in 1976 — it was most certainly their loss. Though lightweight and fluffy, this album ended up being the most consistent Monkees-related release since Pisces, Aquarius, Capricorn & Jones, the fourth Monkees album from 1967.In fact, one of the Cuts, ‘You & I’, was re-done on the Monkees 1997 reunion album ‘ Justus ‘. This album has been digitally remastered on CD.

Track Listing:

Right Now / I Love ( And I’m Glad I Said It ) / You and I / Teenager in Love /
Sail on Sailor / It Always Hurts the Most in the Morning / Moonfire /
You Didn’t Feel That Way Last Night ( Don’t You Remember ) /
Along Came Jones / Saving My Love For You / I Remember The Feeling / Sweet Heart Attack



Dolenz, Jones, Boyce & Hart – Concert in Japan 

Recorded live at Yubin Chokin Hall in Tokyo, July 1976, this out of print album captured the legendary tour of what was to billed as The Monkees. However, due to a legal ruling, that named was never to be used and the two members of that famous band, along with the oft-times collaborators, toured as a foursome using their last names. Still Monkees fans search high and low for this less-than successful album, as it is full of classic tunes from not only the Monkees, but Boyce & Hart as well.

Track Listing:

Last Train to Clarksville / Monkees Medley /
I Wonder What She’s Doing Tonight / I’m Not Your Steppin’ Stone /
I Wanna Be Free / Savin’ My Love For You
Pleasant Valley Sunday / I Remember The Feeling / A Teenager in Love / Cuddly Toy / Boyce & Hart Medley / I Love You & I’m Glad I Said It / Action



Dolenz, Jones, Boyce & Hart - The Soundtrack

This is the soundtrack to the rare Pitch Pilot for the variety series that never came to be. Live, In-Studio performances of their classic songs, which was taped in front of a studio audience, and never before available on CD, make this a must have for Monkees Fans!

Track Listing:

Intro / How to Write a Song / Monkees Medley / Boyce & Hart Medley
I Wanna Be Free / Cuddly Toy / I’m Not Your Steppin’ Stone / I’m a Believer

Georgia: The Motion Picture Soundtrack 

Mare Winningham was nominated for an Oscar for her portrayal of the title character in this Indie feature from 1996, and Jennifer Jason Leigh gave one of her best performances ever. But as incredible as the movie itself was, the music was fantastic! Mare Winningham sang her folk numbers with a masterful charm at her craft. Jennifer Jason Leigh sings her rock numbers with an honest grit that reflects the emotions of the character, Sadie- Georgia’s sister, she plays. Included are performances by John Doe (of punk rock group, X, fame), Blues Great Jimmy Witherspoon, Smokey Hornet, & West Coast Folk Duo- Ranch Romance.

The Iron City Houserockers -
      
Cracking Under Pressure

Their 4th & final release on their original label, MCA, proved to be their most commercially successful, both artistically & financially. They incorporated lush keyboard arrangements inspired by the New-Wave sound that was then just beginning to emerge. MCA also, instigated they shorten their name to simply ‘ The Houserockers’, this opened up a new door for them with radio stations, but alienated many of their die hard rocking fans. Nevertheless, it was too little too late, as The Iron City Houserockers were dropped by MCA just 21 days after the release of this album. The album did become their best-selling, but they never really caught on with the record buying public to any great extent. They were truly one of the best Rock Bands out there from 1976-1980. This being their last album,and the circumstances surrounding it, have made this their MOST RARE album. Now enjoy it on CD.

Track Listing:

Rock & Roll Heart / Loving Cup / Angels / Hit The Road Jack
American Son / Girl Problems / Cracking ( Under Pressure )
Breaking Point / Soul Rockin’ / I Should’ve Never Let You Go
There’ll Never Be Enough Time

Track Listing:

She’s Gone / All Good People / Unspoken / Soul Slide
Go Deep / Straight for the Moon / Running on Faith / People Get Ready

John Palumbo – Blowing Up Detroit

The 2nd solo release, from the front man of Crack The Sky. An extremely rare find (even on vinyl or cassette)!!! Critically acclaimed throughout his career, both solo and with Crack The Sky, this was his most commercial solo release. A great work that rock’s with a pulsating 80’s beat and the infamous Palumbo arrangements & lyrics.

Track Listing:

Blowing Up Detroit / Modern Romance / Drifting Back to Motown /
Electric Wire / She’s The Release / Girls From Mars / In The New World /
Hurt Me

John Palumbo – Innocent Bystander

The Crack The Sky front-man’s 1st solo effort, was recorded after John briefly quit Crack The Sky  (After their 2nd album Animal Notes was released ). This album received a huge amount of critical acclaim, but lacked in sales. The album faded into obscurity, and was only heard by the most die hard of Crack The Sky fans. Here it is for you now on CD.

Track Listing:

Madness on Comet Way / Family Man / Dear Dear / A Man in The Sky
I Lean On You / Kangaroos / No One Wants to Be Alone / It’s Okay to Die
The Crying Father From Idaho / They Go To Movies

Kaptain Kool & The Kongs

Saturday mornings in the 70’s came alive on ABC’s ‘Kroft Super Show’. A show that was filled with cartoons, live action serials, & plenty of bubblegum music, which was furnished by the show’s hosts: Kaptain Kool & The Kongs. They were a band that was fronted by Michael Lembeck, who went on to have a degree of success in sitcoms like ‘One Day at a Time’ & numerous guest shots on TV Shows. Though they band did not play their own music, they did however, sing all the songs on this lost & rare album. They even made an appearance on ‘American Bandstand’ in support of the album when it was released in 1976.

Track Listing:

    And I Never Dreamed / This Time / You Put Some Love In My Life
    When You Feel It / True Love is On Its Way /
    The Whole World Will Be Dancing /

    Crazy Girl / You Saved Me / Melanie / Free / Sing Me A Song


Mare Winningham – Lonesomers

The 2nd offering from Mare Winningham is even more fetching than her first album. Mare's voice is beautiful, and her music and lyrics are at once catchy and poetic...heart-felt and giddy. Her guitar playing is right on track with her dulcimer playing. Both are fantastic. Her writing ability is simple and yet somehow complex at the same time. This album sits on many Top 10 lists of folk music released in the 90’s. Do not miss the chance of adding this "too well hidden gem" to your CD collection today! 

Track Listing:

Miles / The Last Time/ This Tower Leave it Alone / Are You Smiling / Lonesomers / Silver Bullets / Quietly Tonight / Wake Up / World That I Love / It’s So Hard


Mare Winningham- What Might Be 

It wasn’t a huge shock that Mare Winningham had talent. She made her debut on The Gong Show when she was only 14, and won enough money to go to Acting Camp that summer. She became an extremely accomplished actress, having been in numerous smash hit movies ( St.Elmo’s Fire, Turner & Hooch, & Georgia to name only a few ), Been nominated for an Oscar, Winning an Emmy, and many other awards, but when she signed a recording contract and released her 1st folk album to huge critical acclaim, the public began to notice her for her musical talents as well. It turned out that she was a very talented songwtriter, arranger and singer. The company that released this album, Bay Cities, has long since closed their doors, forcing this album into an out of print status, but we now offer it to you….Enjoy!!

Track Listing :

Take My Word For It / Train Song / That Night / Einstien
He’s Coming / Where Are You Come Get Me / Camera
What Might Be / Well It’s Gone / If I Wanted
What’s In Store / Far Away From Me

Ted Nugent - State of Shock

After a string of successful albums in the early-mid 70s, Ted Nugent then released a string of not so successful albums in the late 70s. This was the 2nd of what would be 3, less than expected works in a row. But the lack of commercial success for those albums, in no way, took anything away from the masterful metal sound of the ‘ Motor City Madman’ as every cut over this period was awesome indeed. This album, the least successful of the 3 mentioned, is long out of print, and very hard to find. Enjoy the music and especially Ted’s cover of the Beatles classic, ‘ I Want to Tell You.’

Track Listing:

Paralyzed  /  Take It or Leave It  /  Alone  /  It’ Don’t Matter  /  State of Shock
I Want To Tell You  /  Satisfied  /  Bite Down Hard  /  Snake Charmer  / 
Saddle Sore


The Temptones featuring Daryl Hall

The Temptones were a blue-eyed soul group from Philadelphia, PA. Their recording career began while they attended college and lasted less than two years, from 1966 to 1967. Daryl Hall, who went on to superstardom with John Oates, debuted with the Temptones as their lead singer. The other members were Barry Glazer, Ken Halpern, Brian Utain, and Paul Fogel (considered the fifth Temptone). Oates joined the group toward their end playing rhythm guitar on live gigs; he never recorded with the Temptones. They were more popular live than their recordings, however. They played many gigs including two Freedom Shows in Philadelphia, the Uptown Theater, and several television shows including The Jerry Blavatt Show. Here is the complete catalog of their on CD. recordings (You’ll notice wide range of differences in the same song,  between different studio sessions.)

Vanity 6

As part of the Prince Stable of the 80’s music scene, Prince grouped his girlfriend, former girlfriend & wardrobe mistress to form The Hookers. That name would later be scrapped in favor of Vanity 6. The group went on to record this one & only album, before personal differences broke the group up. However, on this album, Vanity and her colleagues are insanely fun. Prince's stamp is all over this 1982 release, which finds Vanity, Brenda, and Susan backed by the Time. The raunchy lyrics reflect Prince's obsession with all things sexual, and like Prince, Vanity 6 manages to bridge the gap between funk/R&B and rock/pop/new wave. Even if the sexually exploitive lyrics become predictable after awhile, this LP is quite diverse and unpredictable musically. Prince even guest vocals on ‘If a Woman Answers, Don’t Hang Up’ as the jealous girlfriend. There are 2 Bonus cuts on this disc: The Ultra-Rare ‘Vibrator’ that Warner Bros simply refused to release because of it’s extreme explicitness, and the original demo for ‘Sex Shooter’ originally done by Vanity 6 here, it was later done by Apollonia 6 ( what became of Vanity 6 after Vanity quit to go solo and was replaced by Apollonia Katero ) in the movie Purple Rain.

Track Listing:

Nasty Girl / Wet Dream / Drive Me Wild / He’s So Dull
If A Girl Answers, Don’t Hang Up / Make-Up
Bite The Beat / 3 x 2 = 6 / Vibrator / Sex Shooter

Vanity – Wild Animal

After a highly publicized breakup with her lover and svengali, Prince, Vanity left behind Vanity 6 and set out on her own. She signed with Motown Records and recorded 2 albums that showed promise, but failed to deliver any hits. Thinking that this meant her success depended totally on Prince, Motown dropped her from their label and her albums faded into obscurity. This is her solo debut album now available on CD. Complete with Vanity’s trademark suggestive lyrics.

Track Listing:

Flippin’ Out  /  Pretty Mess  /  Samuelle  /  Strap On “Robbie Baby”
Wild Animal  /  Mechanical Emotion  /   Crazy Maybe
