Jim Croce Sees Brilliant Career Overview


American Folk Legend Jim Croce Sees Brilliant Career Overview In Rarities Of His Greatest Hits Including A Previously Unreleased Concert From 1964!

Los Angeles, CA – On July 22nd, the legacy of folk singer Jim Croce will see added to its distinguished discography, the release of Lost Time In A Bottle, a 24-track collection of rare versions of all his greatest hit songs including “Time In A Bottle,” “Operator,” “Bad, Bad Leroy Brown” and “I Got A Name.” The collection will be released by Cleopatra Records first on CD, with a 2LP vinyl version set to follow shortly thereafter.

Between the years 1966 and 1973, Croce released a mere five studio albums and 11 singles, 2 of which made it to number one on the Billboard Hot 100 Chart. Sadly, we lost this incredible artist on September 20, 1973. His body of work however has lived on in a timeless state as new fans and old have embraced the incredible songwriting that has made him into the legend that he is today.

Included on Lost Time In A Bottle, is a previously unreleased radio concert from Cazenovia College in 1964. Recorded near the beginning of Jim’s career, it is a marvelous showcase of the storytelling skills and sparkling personality that the world would soon come to love.

JIM REEVES ON ABBOTT RECORDS

JIM REEVES ON ABBOTT RECORDS

Bear Family Release Complete Recordings + More

Way before he became the smooth voiced stylist with a devoted following that spread across international boundaries, Jim Reeves was a hardcore country singer recording songs that reflected both his Texas roots and current chart sounds. Now, commemorating the 50th anniversary of his death, Bear Family Records has released all the recordings that Gentleman Jim made before signing with RCA Victor in 1955.

Titled The Complete Abbott Recordings, plus this is a 3 cd mini-box set with a 100 page booklet comprising 76 tracks which, as the title indicates, is more than just the Abbott recordings but also the earlier 1949 Macy’s recordings plus a handful of early ‘50s demo recordings, allowing the listener to hear how the phenomenal Reeves career was launched.

Biographical information on James Travis Reeves is well documented and has regularly appeared in print over the years since his tragically early death, noting how a promising baseball career was short-lived through injury, leading on to radio broasting and, eventually, to music as a dj and performer.

But this collection marks the first ever, fully definitive examination of this artist’s early work, the project overseen by veteran Reeves expert David Bussey who, for many years, ran the Jim Reeves Fan Club after first being hooked on the artist following the purchase of the Bimbo LP. Bussey, with regular Bear Family contributor Kevin Coffey were the set’s reissue producers and, besides detailed information on all the recordings, the set’s highly detailed book also includes a mass of photographs (some rare and previously unpublished) and a newly researched discography.

The first tracks in this set are the four titles (My Heart’s Like A Welcome Mat, I’ve Never Been So Blue, Teardrops Of Regret and Chicken Hearted, all co-written by Reeves) recorded for the short-lived Macy’s, a subsidiary of Houston’s Macy’s Record Distributors, in October 1949, with all the expenses coming out of the singer’s pocket. The songs were slow-to-middle tempo and hardly made much impact, whether performance or popularity wise.

Then, with five self-penned demos recorded in the early 1950s, Jim Reeves signed with Abbott Records, following an introduction to Fabor Robison (the label’s owner) by disc jockey Tom Perryman. He had first became aware of Reeves from his sports broadcasting days and later engineered the singer’s first tracks (including the originals Wagon Load Of Love and What Were You Doing Last Night), released by Abbott in 1952. But another five sessions were to pass before the singer recorded what was to become not only his first chart record but also a number one – Mexican Joe, an up-tempo novelty penned by fellow label recording artist Mitchell Torok which entered the charts in March 1953. Its’ success  immediately set the style and pace for the follow-up, Bimbo, another chart-topper. Four more hits followed – I Love You (a song-narration with Ginny Wright, and released on associate label Fabor), Then I’ll Stop Loving You, Penny Candy and Drinking Tequila - before Reeves departed from Robison and Abbott and moved on to sign with Steve Shoals for RCA.

In total Reeves recorded 36 titles for Abbott and none giving any indication of his later work, the majority kept up the tempo in solid honky-tonk surroundings, following the decision of producer Robison who obviously wanted to maintain the winning streak with songs and sound, also frequently urging the artist to sing in a higher key than he preferred.

Like other releases in Bear Family’s irregular mini-box collections (which includes sets by Johnny Cash, Carl Perkins and the Everly Brothers), the Complete Abbott Recordings, plus not only contains all the original masters and alternative takes (the several different versions of recordings are listed below) but also all the surviving false starts and studio chatter. Overall it gives a much fuller picture of Jim Reeves in a recording studio, often working alongside legendary musicians such as steel guitarists Bobby Garrett, Jimmy Day and Speedy West, pianist Floyd  Cramer, fiddlers Big Red and Little Red Hayes, and Harold Hensley among others. It all adds up to almost three and a half hours in a recording studio, presenting Jim Reeves as never revealed before.

The accompanying book provides considerable light not only on the songs but also on Reeves and related events and people in this period of his career, including information on fellow Abbott recording artist Johnny Horton, a brief history of Abbott Records and its’  bossman Fabor Robison who might have been loathed by many but was, nevertheless, a major contributor to the success of country music during the 1950s and ‘60s.

THE ROYS Release “No More Lonely”

THE ROYS Release Companion Lyric Video For
New Single, “No More Lonely”
 
 
“’No More Lonely’ is pure Country soul with a Bluegrass heart ... reminiscent of the style that made Dolly Parton a star.  This is music from the roots of both genres.” -  
Bob Cherry, Cybergrass
 
The more I hear Elaine Roy singing 'No More Lonely' the more I hear shades
of a young Dolly Parton, but the tune is still 100 percent THE ROYS.  I know of no higher compliment.” - Brian McNeal, Prescription Bluegrass
 
Nashville, TN (July 9, 2014) – Brother/sister Bluegrass duo THE ROYS have released a companion lyric video  to their newest radio single, "No More Lonely."  Produced by Sammy Passamano, the digital creation intersperses colorful “cue card” stills with teases of breathtaking artwork from the siblings’ upcoming CD, THE VIEW, due in stores in September on Rural Rhythm Records.
 
“Lyric videos are becoming more and more popular all the time,” Passamano notes.  “They help fans connect with a song’s message while creating an entertaining visual experience that further enhances the music.”  Sammy used Adobe After Effects software to create the piece; his first in this format.  His previous efforts include conceptual and live music videos for THE ROYS, Marty Raybon, Russell Moore & IIIrd Tyme Out, Darrell Webb, Monroeville, Billy Droze and Brand New Strings.
 
“No More Lonely” was written by Elaine, Lee and Nashville hitmaker Steve Dean; the single is now available for purchase at  iTunes, Amazon, Google Plus, Rhapsody and eMusic.

CD: Eric Lambert and Friends Maiden Voyage

Eric Lambert and Friends
Maiden Voyage

Cumberland Blues 4:39 Maiden Voyage 4:46 Won’t Fight Alone Again 3:39 The Sweet Irish Lass 6:08 Big Legged Woman 4:23 Breakfast at Georges 3:19 Hey Pocky Way 5:23 Make it Through the Night 3:58 Senorita 4:31 Another Sunny Day in Caroline 3:10

First the banjo, then a fiddle or two and now all they’re missin’ is a jug and a washboard and this would be one humdinger of a jug band. A few other things that I forgot, a front porch a couple of rocking chairs a dab of moonshine and a mountain, say maybe somewhere in West Virginia, Kentucky or Tennessee, that there’d be the best damn recipe I could come up with. Just in case I didn’t offend everyone equally let me also add North Carolina and South Carolina.
That was my first impression of, Cumberland Blues, also I had enough seriousness for one day. I will definitely have to give it to them they are really talented, and most likely this would be a great show especially at an outdoor venue. Maiden Voyage begins to really display his flat-picking. When someone can get those strings moving right and that fiddle going, I really believe you can do no wrong. But, I mean no wonder why this is the title track of the album. It is an utter raw display of talent that is second to none.
Won’t Fight Alone Again, leaves me with no alternative but to once again maintain seriousness. In this song you can really see his musical influences of Jerry Garcia and Bob Dylan coming through, but I don’t think either ever reached the level that he has. The Sweet Irish Lass, opens up just as you’d expect her too. Uhhh, that’s not what I meant. It’s an Irish jig.
Next, Big Legged Woman, you really get the Chicago blues influence with that flat picking he is well known for. The lyrics are great, I had only one problem with this one even though it was four minutes long I just felt it was over before I was ready for it to end. Breakfast at Georges, is just another song on this album that makes you say to yourself, it can’t get any better than this. This one is another instrumental, and I bet it was a difficult choice to make for the title track.
It’s kind of a shame that I get these albums song-by-song. I can imagine this album playing straight on through, especially where I live. This just reminds me of one of the great outdoor shows in a field in the spring down here in Florida that would last for a few days. And with that thought comes, Make it Through the Night, because those shows you’d go to a campground area afterword set up a tent and hundreds, if not thousands of others would be camping out as well.
Senorita is another incredible instrumental. And, Another Sunny Day in Caroline, bluegrass is thrown heavily in the mix.. This is really get up and move music. I don’t believe anyone could walk away from a show without complete exhaustion, and if they had a summer tour playing through Florida not only would I go, but I would probably have to be carried out on a stretcher from heat exhaustion.
This is one of those albums that you really need to purchase the entire CD. You really need to attend a show, or if you play guitar you really need to get on his site and either purchase his teaching DVD or get lucky enough to get lessons from him. Eric Lambert is a true master who has been doing this for over 35 years. Just add his friends and I don’t think there are more educated musicians in this genre. If I was absolutely forced to choose my favorite song, I would pick, Won’t Fight Alone Again, but I won’t because I have the entire album.

CMA SONGWRITERS SERIES JULY 30 IN CHICAGO


CMA SONGWRITERS SERIES CONTINUES TO CELEBRATE 10TH ANNIVERSARY ON JULY 30 IN CHICAGO AT JOE'S BAR 

Bob DiPiero, Striking Matches, and Charlie Worsham Share the Stories Behind Their Hits
NASHVILLE - The CMA Songwriters Series returns to Chicago to launch the second half of its 10th anniversary year at Joe’s Bar on Wednesday, July 30 (8:30 PM/CT, doors at 7:00 PM/CT). Celebrating its decade-long run, the CMA Songwriters Series features songwriter and host Bob DiPiero performing alongside Striking Matches and Charlie Worsham. Tickets go on sale Wednesday, July 9 (10 AM/CT). 
Striking Matches is a duo made up of Justin Davis and Sarah Zimmermann. Paired by a professor at Belmont University to perform for a classroom full of guitar majors, they have been writing and performing together ever since. Their self-titled EP was released in October 2012 and was named among iTunes “Best of 2012.” Featured on NPR and in the Wall Street Journal the pair have already appeared on the Grand Ole Opry more than 15 times, opened for some of the biggest names in music, and had five songs featured on ABC’s hit television series “Nashville.” Earlier this year, the duo participated in the CMA Songwriters Series in London as part of the Second Annual CMA International Marketing Summit to rave reviews from fans.
Warner Music Nashville recording artist Worsham released his debut album Rubberband in 2013. An alumnus of Berklee College of Music, Worsham made his Grand Ole Opry debut at just 12 years old. The accomplished musician co-wrote every song on Rubberband including the Top 20 hit “Could It Be” and has also had a cut by Dierks Bentley (“Heart of a Lonely Girl”). The Mississippi native has toured with Miranda Lambert, Brad Paisley, and Taylor Swift and was recently named a CMA Music Festival “Must-See Act” by RollingStoneCountry.com.
CMA Songwriters Series host and a member of the Songwriters Hall of Fame, DiPiero (“Southern Voice” recorded by Tim McGraw, “Blue Clear Sky” recorded by George Strait, and “Lovin’ You Is Fun” recorded by Easton Corbin) will also return to the stage, sharing the entertaining stories behind some of his most popular hit songs. DiPiero has had more than 1,200 songs recorded by other artists, countless hit singles, and an astounding 15 No. 1 hits.
The CMA Songwriters Series kicked off its 10th Anniversary season with standing-room-only shows at the Sundance Film Festival in January, and has performed shows in Nashville, New York City, and London already in 2014. Other planned performance locations this year include: Paradise Island, Bahamas, on August 30 as part of the Atlantis Live Paradise Music Festival Presented by HGTV with Kristian Bush, Brett James, Bobby Pinson, and Caitlyn Smith; as well as shows in Austin, Nashville, and New York.
Also in 2014, CMA has partnered with Public Television’s critically-acclaimed concert series “Front and Center” to present two separate hour-long concert specials for the 2014 fall season. The shows will feature the music of CMA Award winners Lady Antebellum as they are joined by special songwriter guests, and a special 10th Anniversary CMA Songwriters Series celebration with CMA Award winner Dierks Bentley. Bentley will be joined by top songwriters Jim Beavers, Ross Copperman, James, and Jon Randall. The episodes, which taped earlier this year in Nashville, are scheduled to air this fall leading up to “The 48th Annual CMA Awards.”
For nearly a decade, the CMA Songwriters Series has been exposing fans across the country and the globe to the artisans who, through their craft, pen hits that touch the lives of millions of music fans. Since it began at Joes’ Pub in New York City in 2005, the CMA Songwriter Series has presented more than 75 shows in 13 cities, including Austin, Boston, Belfast, Chicago, Dublin, London, Los Angeles, New York, Paris, Phoenix, and Washington, D.C. at the renowned Library of Congress.
The series has featured 127 of music’s most gifted storytellers who collectively have 61 CMA Song of the Year nominations. 
Some of the artists that have been part of the series include Clint Black, Kix Brooks, Kenny Chesney, Billy Currington, Randy Houser, Miranda Lambert, Little Big Town, Patty Loveless, Ronnie Milsap, Kip Moore, David Lee Murphy, Gretchen Peters, Kellie Pickler, The Band Perry, Josh Turner, Carrie Underwood, Phil Vassar, and Chris Young.
