Grateful Dead – One From The Vault: Live at the Great American Music Hall, San Francisco 8/13/75
FDR 607 (3xLP)
Available: December 3, 2013
We are proud to announce, on this fine Halloween afternoon, our forthcoming reissue of the Grateful Dead’s performance at the Great American Music Hall in San Francisco on August 13th 1975. The band only played 4 shows during that entire year, which was remarkable for a band that toured non-stop for decades. For this performance, the band rolled multi-track tape, allowing them decades later to properly mix the show. Because the Great American Music Hall holds less than 1,000 people (another unique thing about this show), it was an invitation only performance in which the band debuted their recent studio album Blues For Allah in a live setting.
- 3xLP housed in a deluxe uncoated tri-fold jacket
- First ever American vinyl release
- Newly re-mastered by Joe Gastwirt
Robbie Hill’s Family Affair – Gotta Get Back: The Unreleased L.A. Sessions
LITA 110 (LP)
Available: November 29, 2013 for Record Store Day “Black Friday”
Almost 10 years ago, Light In The Attic and DJ Supreme La Rock compiled the first ever set of vintage Pacific Northwest soul on Wheedle’s Groove: Seattle’s Finest In Funk & Soul 1965-75 featuring such rare sides as “I Just Want To Be (Like Myself)” by legendary funk outfit Robbie Hill’s Family Affair. Originally recorded at RCA Studios in Los Angeles on January 1975 with Executive Producer Cuba Gooding Sr. and The Main Ingredient, these five previously unreleased tracks remained lost until the recent discovery of the original multi-track masters. Nothing could be more of a testament to the group’s bond than their longevity, which continues on to the present day, surviving in Seattle’s Central District, carrying on a nearly half a century long tradition.
- Previously unreleased session from ’75 recorded at RCA in Los Angeles
- Limited and hand-numbered to 2,000 copies worldwide
