Ruby Red Vinyl LP!
Limited to 2,000 Copies! Get Yours Now!
First Time on Vinyl Since 1971!

With the release of their debut self-titled album, Fanny made history as the first all-female rock band ever signed to a major label, but it was on their second album when the girls really settled into a groove. Highlighted by such tracks as "Cat Fever," "Thinking of You" and "Place in the Country," Charity Ball was a quantum leap forward for the group, and displays a much more surehanded lyrical and musical approach than its predecessor. Still, this Real Gone reissue marks the first time Charity Ball has been available on vinyl since its original 1971 release, and the folks at Real Gone Music have gotten it all dressed up for the ball, with the original album art featuring the cover photo by Candice Bergen and a lyric sheet. Ruby red vinyl pressing limited to 2,000 copies!

As the first all-female rock band to cut an album for a major label, Fanny had the unenviable task of being trailblazers who were expected to 'prove' they were capable of playing rock & roll (something women had been doing for years at this point). With Charity Ball, Fanny reminded anyone with ears that they were a strong, talented, and exciting rock & roll band as purely enjoyable as any group on the scene in the early '70s, regardless of gender.
