“Rhino Resurrected” Needs One Last Push!
(Rhino Records Doc: 77 min.)

“Go to Rhino Records on Westwood Boulevard…” – Wild Man Fischer.

“Rhino Resurrected”is the iconoclastic story of a ramshackle little record store that became a hub of hardcore music misfits, a launching pad for influential music careers, and a groundbreaking and irreverent record label revered by music lovers worldwide. The inspiration for the film came last spring when the founder of Rhino, Richard Foos, opened a “pop-up” record store that aimed to re-create the “Rhino” vibe and quickly turned into a celebration of and elegy for a music culture that’s all but lost. The film features killer live performances from Richard Thompson, Mike Watt, Peter Case, Little Willie G and thee Midnighters, Dr. Demento, Temple City Kazoo Orchestra and so much more – it’s a must see for any music fan!

On February 21st, Rhino Handmade will release “Sunny Goodge Street, The Warner Bros. Recordings” collection by Tom Northcott, a Canadian folk-rock singer-songwriter who recorded a catalog of ornate psychedelic-folk for Warner Bros. between 1966-69 with legendary producers, arrangers, songwriters.


“Sunny Goodge Street, The Warner Bros. Recordings” is a 20-track collection that includes the 10 tracks originally issued in 1970 on “The Best of Tom Northcott,” (produced by Lenny Waronker and Leon Russell)– including the four singles: Donovan’s ‘Sunny Goodge Street,’ Bob Dylan’s ‘Girl Of The North Country’ and Harry Nilsson’s ’1941′ and ‘The Rainmaker’ (The latter paired Northcott with Jack Nitzsche’s outstanding arrangement). And six previously unreleased tracks that Northcott recorded between 1968-69. Several are from sessions in Los Angeles, (‘Ain’t Nobody Home,’ ‘A Soulful Shade Of Blue,’ ‘A Long Way Down’ and Randy Newman’s ‘Somebody Always Gets Hurt’) while others were recorded in London at Pye Studios (‘See The Tinker Ride’ and ‘There’s No Time’), and also features the single versions of ‘Sunny Goodge Street’ and its b-side ‘Who Planted Thorns In Miss Alice’s Garden,’ plus Northcott’s final single with Warner Bros. Records, ‘Make Me An Island,’ a song written by Albert Hammond and arranged by Nilsson collaborator Perry Botkin, Jr..
