Real Gone Music Re-releases Cameo Parkway Albums

Real Gone Music has been putting out a lot of great albums that for one reason or another had gone out-of-print, like the Germs' (GI), and other albums that hadn't been released on CD at all, like the Durocs self-titled 1979 album.

In May 2012 Real Gone Music also released CDs by Chubby Checker, The Orlons and Terry Knight And The Pack, as well as the compilation Remember Me Baby: Cameo Parkway Vocal Groups Vol. 1. It seems just a couple of years ago that these albums were released on CD.  That's because they were. Chubby Checker's It's Pony Time/Let's Twist Again, The Orlons' The Wah-Watusi/South Street, Terry Knight And The Pack's Terry Knight And The Pack/Reflections, and Remember Me Baby were all released on June 22, 2010 through Collectors' Choice Music.  Then they were all re-released on May 22, 2012 through Real Gone Music.

So what happened in the meantime? The Collectors' Choice Music label ceased, and that labels' Gordon Anderson formed the Real Gone Music label with Gabby Castellana. Launched in 2011, Real Gone Music picked up where Collectors' Choice Music left off.  So a big thank you to Real Gone Music for keeping this albums in print.
