Ricky Nelson was a real teenage legend, his real name was Eric Hilliard Nelson born in Teaneck, New Jersey; on May 8th, 1940. He died in December 31th, 1985 in De Kalb Texas.
Ricky started his career with the TV and Radio show of his parents Oswald George “Ozzie” Nelson; his father had a big band and his mother Harriett Hilliard Nelson, was the singer of that band. The Show called “The adventures of Ozzie and Harriett. Most of his songs were played in these shows until 1966.
A few years before the show stopped Ricky Nelson started his career as a Rock´N´ Roll singer and in between those days he already recorded a few country songs. After a few cross over hits in the charts, was the album “Bright Lights And Country Music” released in may 1966. With his own band, there has been Glen Campbell and Clarence White bound in this scenario. Next to a original composition, there had been a composition of Glen Campbell in this album and the rest only cover hits, but this was the switch for Ricky from a Rock´n Roll singer to a country singer. Ricky created his own music style and you can say that it had been the forerunner to country rock.

HANK WILLIAMS SURFACES IN THE GARDEN SPOT

PREVIOUSLY UNRELEASED MUSIC FROM HANK WILLIAMS
SURFACES IN THE GARDEN SPOT PROGRAMS, 1950


On May 20, Omnivore Recordings will issue 24 songs and jingles
recorded in Nashville, and last heard generations ago
 
LOS ANGELES, Calif. (April 17, 2014) — Omnivore Recordings will soon release the full-length version of The Garden Spot Programs, 1950, featuring 24 performances, unheard for 64 years, from country music legend Hank Williams. Rescued from obscurity, these shows originally aired more than six decades ago; The Garden Spot Programs, 1950 collects material from the four episodes now known to exist. Due out May 20, 2014, the set follows the release of Omnivore’s collectible 10” vinyl Record Store Day EP sampler.

From hits to standards to songs rarely (if ever) performed, this is pure Hank Williams, including playful between-song banter. Featuring fully restored audio, The Garden Spot Programs, 1950 is an exceptional listening experience. Painstakingly transferred, restored and mastered from original transcription discs by Grammy Award winning engineer Michael Graves. Williams’ daughter, Jett, is excited that her father’s lost material is not only seeing the light of day decades later, but will be available on CD, digital and LP.

The CD packaging contains rare photos and liner notes from the collection of set co-producer and Williams biographer Colin Escott. Also available on LP, the first pressing will be on limited edition, translucent red vinyl (with black vinyl to follow), containing Escott’s informative notes and a download card.

Escott writes in his notes: “Set the time machine for early morning on KSIB-AM, Creston, Iowa. February 1950. Country radio was beginning its slow transition from live music to DJ shows. Live music and DJ shows were augmented by transcribed shows. After buying 15 minutes of airtime on small-market stations, sponsors would prerecord shows with well known artists, duplicate them, and ship them out on 12 or 16-inch transcribed discs.”

“That’s how Hank Williams came to be on KSIB in February 1950. Sandwiched between the local ‘live’ acts, it was almost as if he were visiting with Skeets and those Radio Rascals. His sponsor was one of the nation’s largest plant nurseries, Naughton Farms, seven hundred miles south in Waxahachie, Texas. Given that Naughton was a big player in the nursery business, Hank’s shows were almost certainly shipped to many small stations, but only KSIB’s copies survived. Those of us who have studied Hank’s life and career had no idea that these recordings existed.”

Any music from Hank Williams is worth celebrating. Discovering material that has been unheard for generations is monumental.

“It’s incredible to me that we’re still finding new recordings by my dad — great ones at that,” says Jett Williams. “No one even suspected that these recordings existed. We partnered with Omnivore Recordings for this release, and I especially love it that they're taking my dad back to vinyl.”

WILLIE NELSON TO BE PROMOTED TO 5TH DEGREE BLACK BELT GONG KWON YU SUL

LEGENDARY ENTERTAINER WILLIE NELSON TO BE PROMOTED
TO 5TH DEGREE BLACK BELT GONG KWON YU SUL

Musician To Attend Ceremony In Austin On April 28
New Studio Album Slated For Summer Release

Award-winning artist Willie Nelson will receive his 5th Degree Black Belt in the art of Gong Kwon Yu Sul, a modern Korean martial arts system. At a ceremony on Monday, April 28 at 7:30pm, Grand Master Sam Um will be promoting Nelson at his studio, Master Martial Arts, located at 3425 Bee Cave Rd C-4 in Austin, TX. The celebration takes place two days before Nelson's birthday.

Nelson has been a practitioner of martial arts most of his life, starting with studying kung fu when he was a songwriter in Nashville. In the past 20 years he has been training in the art of Tae Kwon Do and Gong Kwon Yu Sul often practicing techniques while traveling on the road in his bus, Honeysuckle Rose. Just prior to his 80th birthday last year, Nelson told Men's Health Magazine, "Really, all my life, Charles Atlas and Bruce Lee were on my mind. It's a good form of exercise, especially as you get older. I went through school playing all kinds of sports. I played shortstop. I ran track. I played football. I was a pole vaulter. Then when I went to Nashville, I got into some martial arts and kung fu. I liked it. We used to offer kung fu lessons to the kids in town. It's good for you."

With a six-decade career and 200 plus albums, this iconic Texan is the creative genius behind the historic recordings of CrazyRed Headed Stranger and Stardust. Willie Nelson has earned every conceivable award as a musician and amassed reputable credentials as an author, actor and activist. Released
May of 2012 is Heroes, his first album for Legacy Recordings, showcased new songs and deep country classics. The album spent five weeks at #1 on the Americana Radio Chart. Later that year he launched his book, Roll Me Up And Smoke Me When I Die, which landed in the Top 10 on The New York Times' best-seller list. A road journal written in his inimitable, homespun voice, the book is a deeply personal look into the heart and soul of a unique man and one of the greatest artists of our time. In 2013, Willie's albums included April's Let's Face The Music And Dance, an album of deep pop country repertoire classics performed with transformative patented ease by Nelson and Family, his long-time touring and recording ensemble; and October's To All The Girls... which features 18 duets with music's top female singers including Dolly Parton, Mavis Staples, Sheryl Crow, Loretta Lynn, Wynonna Judd, Rosanne Cash, Alison Krauss, Miranda Lambert, Carrie Underwood, Emmylou Harris, Norah Jones, and Shelby Lynne. In May of 2014, Willie embarks on a summer tour with co-headliner Alison Krauss & Union Station featuring Jerry Douglas. Also this summer, Willie will release a new studio album that was produced by Buddy Cannon.
