Both Krazy Kat (in England) and Collectables in the U.S. have reissued a lot of Gotham material. Not sure what the business connections are.

Amazingly Gotham still survives today as the Discmaker empire. They 
recently bought CD Baby as a matter of fact. The Empire label was owned 
by Morris Ballen and the Ballen family to my knowledge are still in the 
driver's seat. They actually put out a surprisingly good number of 
records in a variety of genres. I do not believe that the Gotham catalog 
has ever been reissued but
someone should do it as the stuff was quite hip overall. As far as the 
Goody connection goes I would be surprised if it was not Sam
Goody as Morris and Sam were to my knowledge contemporaries.
