A Weekend In February (2010)

Our first new recording in 20 years! We are currently divided between California and North Carolina. Most of the album was mastered and recorded with GarageBand, except for track 3. Our only vocal track on this album was recorded on a pair of vintage portastudio's, due to equipment failure. The fidelity suffers, but we wanted it on this first album. We are pleased to participate in the RPG challenge, and plan release of a complete album by 2011.

The Walk Before The Dream (2011)

Retail Nightmare has produced three albums; 1.A weekend In February (RPM Challenge Entry, February 2010) 2.Aliens In Los Angeles, Our first retail release, December 2010. Available at RetailNightmare.com, Note, the CD was originally a Borders Exclusive. 3.The Walk Before The Dream, created 2/2011 exclusively for 2011 RPM Challenge. Note: The Walk Before The Dream will be available for purchase after 2011 RPM Event.

Turbulence Ahead (2012)

Turbulence Ahead is Retail Nightmare's 2012 RPM Challenge Entry. This is our third year. This year's entry is a semi solo effort by myself, Michael Luck. My partner Mitch Mulligan is busy working on our vocal album. I wanted a Soundtrack type feel, inspired by my long time love of film music, especially Tangerine Dream. We hope you enjoy this years entry, and enjoy free downloads through the end of April, 2012. Visit us at:RetailNightmare.com and of course here on our RPM page and the RPM Jukebox
