Our Overview.

Fabulous re-releases of Gary Puckett And The Union Gap, digitally remastered and slipcased with new notes: Gary’s first album from 1968, along with 1969’s ‘The New Gary Puckett And The Union Gap Album’ and 1971’s ‘The Gary Puckett Album’. Also included are A & B sides of various albums.

During the late '60s - a period forever distinguished as rock's most radical, innovative, and far-reaching - American pop rock group Gary Puckett and the Union Gap forged a series of massive chart ballads almost otherworldly in their sheer earnestness and melodrama. Likely the only pop band of the era to play two nightly shows in the Catskills, the early gig for their younger fans, the later appearance for the fans' parents, the group pioneered the hip-to-be-square concept two decades before spiritual descendants Huey Lewis and the News; clad in Civil War-era get-ups (complete with fictitious military ranks) and bizarrely pedophilic lyrics, Puckett and the Union Gap were in their own way as far-out and singular as any other act of the period.

In 1968 Gary Puckett and The Union Gap had six consecutive gold records and sold more records than any other recording act...including the Beatles. They played a command performance at the White House for Prince Charles and Princess Anne by special invitation of the President. Gary Puckett and The Union Gap was one of a very select group of touring acts to achieve prominence worldwide.
