*limited to 1200 copies pressed on transparent cherry vinyl
*old school, tip-on jacket
*includes the original recording of RICHARD TUCKER'S song, Are you Leaving For The Country, which was covered by KAREN DALTON on her 1971 LP, In My Own Time
*includes the only song RICHARD TUCKER and KAREN DALTON wrote together; "Sleeping In The Garden"

"For a few years in the late sixties and early seventies Richard Cam & Bert ruled MacDougal St. walking a fine line between the increasingly commercialized demands created by groups like Crosby Stills and Nash and the fierce integrity of earlier folk performers, the generation to which Richard belonged. They managed this with great aplomb, producing original tunes of great integrity and obvious folkloric origins, as well as those which expressed the anarchic omnipresent psychedelia of the moment. They also never abandoned the idea of including some traditional material in their performances. But for the usual random application of luck they could have been very big." --Grungie O’Muck / Artist, Bluesman, Cover artist for their first album and contributor to this one.


Richard Tucker, Campbell Bruce, and Bert Lee coalesced as a trio in the spring of 1968, and by the end of that year had become regular performers at fabled Greenwich Village nightspots - The Gaslight, The Bag I’m In, Cafe Feenjon, The Underground, and The Olive Tree, among others.  But mostly they were street singers, busking regularly in Central Park. Their only LP, Limited Edition, was released in 1970, and sold only at gigs and on the street. Original copies of the album are now rare collectibles (the LP was reissued digitally in 2014).  

Somewhere in The Stars compiles some of the band’s earlier, previously unreleased recordings, when all three members were signed with Peer-Southern Music Publishers as writers and began using their recording studio to make demos and experiment musically.  Beautifully recorded by house engineer Charlie Mack, and supervised by Jimmy Ienner, who’d signed them to Peer-Southern, the demos capture a back-room casualness and rustic, homespun quality that is as welcoming as it is timeless.  Some of the songs were re-recorded the following year for Limited Edition, but many are heard here for the first time.  Among them is the original demo for Richard Tucker's song, “Are You Leaving For The Country,” which Karen Dalton covered on her seminal 1971 release, In My Own Time.  Richard and Karen were husband and wife for much of the 1960s, performing as a duo (initially as a trio with Tim Hardin), and navigating their time on the Village scene while alternating living in a small gold mining town outside Boulder, Co. before splitting up in 1967. 

Also making its debut is the only song Richard and Karen ever wrote together, the haunting “Sleeping In The Garden.” Although Karen Dalton wrote poetry and prose, she did not consider herself a songwriter, but the lyric, “If you keep sleeping until the end, you'll have to dream it all over again" evokes pure Karen.  Somewhere In The Stars also contains two songs by Cam (“One Of These First Nights” and “Stockholm”) that weren't included on their album, but were staples of their live performances, as noted in a gig review by The New York Times, and in a column by future A&R hero Karin Berg, who was an early champion.  Another rarity on this album is the only cover of “Sweet Mama” by Fred Neil we’ve ever heard. 

Campbell Bruce came to New York in 1967 as lead singer with a band from Washington, DC, The Natty Bumpo.  They’d recently signed a record deal with Phillips, but were falling apart.  Cam landed in the Village with an acoustic guitar and first started playing and singing in the basket houses, and shortly thereafter at The Gaslight, as the "Cam Bruce Trio” (which included Collin Walcott).  After opening for Mose Allison, Cam's hero, the trio went their separate ways, and Cam returned to regular solo gigs at The Flamenco, and the basket houses on Bleecker.  Richard and Cam met up on that scene and quickly found a musical kinship as well as becoming best pals.  

Bert Lee arrived in New York as a runaway the following winter, and began playing and sleeping wherever he could.  His sometime accompanist, Ron Price, introduced Bert to Richard and Cam just as Bert’s own songs were garnering attention from publishers.  According to Bert, “I arrived on the New York scene during a time of great change, and it was the notion of change that influenced me.  All around me I saw there were two sorts of songwriters, on the one hand dedicated to the traditions that had inspired them, folk, jazz, the American songbook.  On the other hand were songwriters influenced by the wave of experimentation that The Beatles were the perfect example of.  Mixing genres, writing lyrics that weren't just about ordinary love and loss.

Richard Tucker was a country blues player, with a relaxed and melodic approach to the craft.  Cam wrote something more akin to soul songs, with a hint of jazz in the changes.  I was writing tunes that sometimes drew on classical structures with a tendency toward what I suppose would be known as prog-rock.  But I was rather adamant about not being pinned down stylistically, and so I would write, for example, a song based on some complex classical chord structure, and then go right ahead and write a simple folk song, like “Evelyn”. Our band was popular locally, and it was this variety that made it distinct.”

One of the group’s biggest fans was the late Kate McGarrigle, who in 2009 shared a hilarious story with Delmore about playing their LP incessantly in the mid / late 1970s, often until a very young Martha and Rufus pleaded with her in unison to “play anything but Richard Cam and Bert!”

"Richard, Cam & Bert seem to have grasped The Great Harmony. That is, ensemble singing that is at once sweet, precise, funky and a bit sardonic - as country things should be"
-Mike Jahn / New York Times  

"The trio's singing, playing, and writing have all withstood the test of time. Believe me, because I was there. In 1969 R,C&B, myself, Charles John Quarto, David Bromberg, Ron Price, and Keith Sykes were just a few of that year's crop of song-slingers. We were young turks back then, out on the prowl in New York's Greenwich Village for record deals, gigs, and beautiful young women to sleep with and maybe even write a song about. I've lost the names and numbers of those lovelies and I'm not sure what happened to Ron Price, but Richard, Cam, and Bert are back! - Loudon Wainwright lll


Delmore is excited to present this unearthed treasure, fifteen years in the making.  In the words of Richard Tucker, "Tap on your knee, roll on the floor; if you aint free, what's it all for?"

Limited Edition of 1500 green 180 gram 2xLP includes a full bonus LP of Rarities and unseen photos and memorabilia, curated by Rick Sims and David Landis. The recklessness and abandon that got me into punk in the first place... a teetering train about to off the rails. I couldn't wait to hear what was next. - Dexter Holland (The Offspring) The best Rock and Roll band of the 80s. - Steve Albini (Shellac, Big Black) Kick Ass Rock and Roll... I'm in love! - Jello Biafra (Dead Kennedys). Didjits began in Champaign-Urbana in 1985. Rick Sims (vocals/guitar) and brother, Brad Sims (drums) recruited bassist Doug Evans to complete the three-piece. They recorded two albums before Touch and Go picked them up in 1988. By this time Rick Sims had transformed into the notorious frontman, Rick Didjit, whose on-stage antics were only as famous as his frequently hilarious wardrobe of unconventional suits. The band's straight-up fast brand of rock didn't sound like much else the label was putting out at the time, but nonetheless, they attracted a large cult following.

Throughout the '90s, the crossover and blending of styles and artists was ever-present, specifically in the genres of hip-hop and rock.

To match the dystopian wasteland aesthetics of the film, this double LP is pressed on smoky red vinyl, and features the likes of Metallica, The Prodigy, Tom Morello, Cypress Hill, Moby and Slayer, just to name a few.

A tribute to one of the greatest songwriters & artists of our time

Features newly recorded covers from Keith Richards, Joan Jett and the Blackhearts, Rufus Wainwright, Lucinda Williams, Maxim Ludwig & Angel Olsen, Rickie Lee Jones, Mary Gauthier, Bobby Rush, Automatic, The Afghan Whigs, and Rosanne Cash

Special Record Store Day Edition pressed on Silver Nugget wax and housed in a silver laminated jacket. Booklet features liner notes by compilation producer & former Lou Reed publicist Bill Bentley, featuring photos by Mick Rock and Timothy Greenfield-Sanders


"To me, Lou stood out. The real deal! Something important to American music and to ALL MUSIC! I miss him and his dog." - Keith Richards

“Lou seemed fearless to me, like he’d rather die than be a people-pleaser. I took inspiration from that.” - Rosanne Cash

“Lou Reed is my earliest influence, my introduction to punk rock, and the soundtrack to the beginning of my romance with Maxim.” - Angel Olsen

"Lou Reed has been gone now for many years. He's one of the few people whom I miss as much now as when he left. There are so many instances where I wonder what he would say or what he would think. His general aura would always lend something really unique to the room. Thank God he left his great music and recordings. His personality is sorely missed. Love you, Lou." - Rufus Wainwright

It goes without saying that the legendary Lou Reed was a true rock ’n’ roll pioneer. From The Velvet Underground’s debut in 1967 all the way through the end of his days, Reed sang truth from his heart. He lived life to the limit—and then some. The Power of the Heart is a tribute to Reed’s freedom of expression with covers spanning his ground-breaking years with the Velvets into his majestic solo career. Each track is a glorious extension of the Rock ’n’ Roll Animal’s soul, ever adventurous and avant-garde.

The Power of the Heart: A Tribute to Lou Reed kicks off with a legend in his own right, Keith Richards, reimagining the Velvets’ classic, “I’m Waiting for the Man.” Richards’ rendition instantly invites you on board this unforgettable ride. In stark contrast, “Perfect Day” is somehow even more melancholy than the original given the Rufus Wainwright treatment, featuring sparse fingerpicking and gentle harmonies. Joan Jett and the Blackhearts deliver a version of “I'm So Free” that would have even Lou rockin’ in his grave. It’s thrilling to hear these songs reinterpreted and sung by such heavyweights; you can even hear as Lucinda Williams channels the spirit of Lou with her take on “Legendary Hearts.”

Other notable tracks include a punk-drunk, loved-up duet by real-life lovers Angel Olsen & Maxim Ludwig with “I Can’t Stand It,” and Rickie Lee Jones’ reimagining of “Walk on the Wild Side,” both whimsical and enticing with her whispery vocals, stripped-down percussion, and a piano fit for a late-night lounge. This tribute album truly defies genre, but its throughline, in the end, is its heart: a deeply thoughtful collection of songs that shaped a generation, each paying homage to a man whose body of work still sings.

Less than two weeks after “These Boots Are Made for Walkin’” made it to the top of the charts, Nancy was back in the studio working on the follow-up. With a newfound confidence and a fresh batch of songs, How Does That Grab You? is a snapshot that captures the fun, creativity, and genius of an artist embracing her moment. The album includes the sparse masterpiece “Bang, Bang,” the Boots-esque “How Does That Grab You, Darlin’?” and Nancy & Lee Hazlewood’s very first duet, the proto-psychedelic “Sand.”

Equal parts strong, sultry, and savvy, Nancy Sinatra has long been ahead of her time—both in her choices as an artist and as a businesswoman. Unapologetically, she established her own path early on and paved the way for decades of female artists to come—all while firmly maintaining control over her career, her image, and her music. In 1965, Nancy Sinatra changed the face of music, fashion, and culture.

-The definitive vinyl reissue of the Nancy’s 1966 sophomore album
-Contains the hits “Bang, Bang,” “Sand” and “How Does That Grab You, Darlin’?”
-Special Record Store Day Exclusive pressed on Orange Cream wax

The fourth studio album by the legendary Boogie Down Productions. Originally released in 1990, this album features production from D-Nice as well as KRS-One himself. KRS’ unmatched lyricism comes correct over hard boom-bap beats as he touches on topics that include materialism, racism, police corruption and violence and more. So it’s fitting that many of the skits--billed here as “exhibits”--feature civil rights pioneer Kwame Ture (previously known as Stokely Carmichael) so as to complement the conscious lyricism of KRS-ONE.

SRC was born out of a smashing up of two of Detroit’s brightest bands, The Fugitives and The Chosen Few (which also featured future Stooge Ron Asheton). The
new band gained a fanatic local following, eventually capturing the attention of Capitol Records.
On this record, the band shifts effortlessly from mountaintop introspection to wild distorted crescendos creating one of the most melodically heavy LPs ever made, an over-the-top psychedelic fuzz guitar masterpiece.
When it was released in the US in 1968, the LP created fan and critical excitement. Still, it was in the UK where the cultdom made its most significant impact, with John Peel playing the hell out of it on his radio show and even Genesis’ Peter Gabriel claiming that this first SRC album was one of his favorites, saying he “wore the record out” (and you can absolutely hear SRC’s melodies buried inside Gabriel’s musical DNA!).
This Record Store Day 2024 release was cut from the analog master tapes by Kevin Gray, in an All Analog Process (AAA).

English singer/songwriter Kate Nash launched her career with piano-driven pop songs and cheeky lyrics that were delivered in a distinctive London accent. Nash soon found success with the platinum-selling Made of Bricks, her 2007 full-length debut. With each successive album, Nash reinvented her sound, tackling neo-soul, synth pop, and indie rock stylings throughout the 2010s. Kate has just signed to Kill Rock Stars, and she has given us 2 exclusive tracks to share with the world for Record Store Day 2024. The pop-jam “Back At School” and then a very personal demo version of the unreleased track “Space Odyssey 2001.”

The two albums multi-instrumentalist/songwriter John Hartford cut for Warner Bros. in the early ‘70s, Aereo-Plain and Morning Bugle, shook the bluegrass genre to the core, adding a modern, irreverent sensibility and fresh repertoire to the tradition-bound style. We have already (twice) reissued Aereo-Plain on LP, but we waited on Morning Bugle because we had something special up our sleeve—namely, the original session tapes! Which means that not only are you getting (with the full consent of the Hartford estate) a new remix and remaster of the original album—which even Hartford devotees admit never sounded that good on the production side of things—but an entire disc of unreleased tracks! Hartford scholar Skip Heller supplies liner notes to this monumental find on the enclosed insert. This 2-LP Expanded Edition comes on forest green vinyl, limited to 1500 copies worldwide, exclusive to Record Store Day 2024!

From the early days of Bob Marley and The Wailers (whose striking sharp-suited Rude Boy style appears on the front cover) through to the classic 1970s Jamaican films The Harder They Come and Rockers, Rude Boys have been synonymous with Jamaican Reggae culture.
