Real Gone September 30

Real Gone Music has plenty of stories to tell with its September 30 slate of releases – including music from, well, Stories!

The eclectic reissue specialists have the first-ever anthology dedicated to Stories (“Brother Louie”) featuring 19 tracks from the band led by Ian Lloyd and Michael Brown, late of legendary baroque-pop band The Left Banke. And that’s not all. Real Gone is digging deep into the Atlantic vaults for the complete recordings of southern soul star Barbara Lynn including an unreleased track, and looking to Atlantic’s Cotillion subsidiary for some sizzling Philly soul from the late, great Ronnie Dyson. Then there’s a second dip into the catalogue of disco’s Faith, Hope and Charity, enhancing their sophomore album with rare 12-inch mixes. Singer-songwriter Kerry Chater’s two Warner Bros. releases helmed by Steve Barri and Michael Omartian will also get the Real Gone treatment, and the label continues its Dick’s Picks reissue series for Grateful Dead with a 1977 New Jersey concert which was the Dead’s first following the release of Arista debut Terrapin Station.
