Live at the Public Theatre
From an April 2001 performance at Joseph Papp's Public Theatre in New York City. With original band members Parker Dulany and guitarist Gammage. This CD features a selection of songs from the band's 24 year career. Featuring guest artists Julee Cruise and Keith Streng (Fleshtones). The band's only authorized live release!
An Introduction to War Special 2-CD set
We admit to a certain bias, but will put forth and stand by the claim, that, for a brief period at least (1983-85), and probably a bit longer, Certain General were, simply put, the best independent rock band in the United States. And this 2 1/2 hour, all previously unreleased-document backs that up claim. It easily stands up to the best work of bands such as the Bad Seeds, Gun Club, Echo & the Bunnymen, Dream Syndicate and itself contains the seeds of what would become the vocabulary of much of the late 80's American underground scenei.e. Flaming Lips, Camper Van Beethovan, Meat Puppets, Screaming Trees, Swell, et. al. Fans of any and all of those bands owe it to themselves to check this music out.
Gammage himself has collected the best 20 tracks from a series of releases issued by French, Spanish, and American labels. For these sessions, Gammage surrounds himself with a veritable who's who of the downtown NYC rock scene with members of Certain General, Band of Outsiders, Richard Hell band, Richard Lloyd band, Lydia Lunch band, Feelies, Corvairs, Nails and others helping out on the various tracks. As Trouser Press said of Gammage's Night Train (5 tracks of which are reprised here) "(Gammage) puts personality into darkside Americana echoing Nick Cave's fascinations minus the melodrama. Which might well make him this generation's Hank Williams".
Tracks of Sound
Nine original instrumental songs composed by guitarist Gammage and collaborators plus one cover (a version of Teddy Edwards "L.A. After Dark" that drips noir)this edgy jazz features some of the best young jazz talent currently on the downtown New York scene. Think crime jazz with latin and lounge elements.
Kneel to the Rising Sun
20th anniversary re-release with bonus tracks. Originally released in 1991 on France's legendary indie label New Rose, the record spotlights some of Gammage's best compositions and performances. The band's musicianship overall is stellar and features some of the best New York players from that era. Marc Jeffrey (Band of Outsiders, Playtime) contributes guitar and slide guitar, Vinny DeNunzio (Feelies, Richard Hell, Health and Happiness Show) plays percussion and harmonica, Dave Kaufman (The Nails) is on keyboards, D. Lee (Band of Outsiders) is on bass, and Phil's old band-mate from the Corvairs, Martin Blazy joins in to play percussion and drums.
It's a PreFab World!
The label has assembled a stellar collection that highlights some of the best songs of the past few years from it's catalog. What sets this compilation apart from the competition though, is the wealth of rare and previously unreleased tracks that make the majority of its song list.
International (non U.S./Canada) customers add $6 shipping to total CD order (international orders only).
The Chelsea Sessions CD Single
The debut recording by the enigmatic NYC actress/model, these tracks surfaced after the results of a secret recording session were shared amongst a small circle of friends. While the identity of Claudia herself may be a bit of a mystery, the immediate appeal and grace of her singing is not. This single release consists of two cover versions: Lou Reed's "I'll Be Your Mirror" and the 1963 chart topper by Skeeter Davis "End of the World". If Austin Powers was throwing a party, he'd have a Claudia record on the stereo. Produced by Phil Gammage.
Live at Windows on the World
This historically significant recording (the first commercial CD release of a live recording from the late great Windows on the World at One World Trade Center in New York) was made on a hot August night in 2000. The digitally mastered stereo performance is captured live and honestly with no 'post production' overdubs. The result is a raw, swingin' and rockin' recording that will grab your soul and force you to move and boogie. The 'DUKES rip through 13 original songsmost previously unreleased and available only on this CD. Featured on several is noted Canadian jazz vocalist Natasha Helmer.
Denver Sessions '79
7 song CD of early Colorado New Wave studio recordings from one of the scene's pioneer bands. All previously unreleased material. Contains bonus cuts from Boulder's Joey Vain and Scissors.
Unsafe at Any Speed
