THE RCA NASHVILLE SOUND OF COUNTRY

THE RCA NASHVILLE SOUND OF COUNTRY
Historic Box Sets From Bear Family Records
“Nashville Stars On Tour” + Dolly & Porter Complete Duets


Fifty years ago in April 1964 a group of RCA’s major country music artists toured Europe, performing concerts in Hamburg, Frankfurt, Munich, Vienna, Hannover, Essen, Berlin, Copenhagen, Stockholm, Oslo and Brussels. The troupe was headlined by Jim Reeves, arguably the hottest act on the country scene with 25 top ten hits in the Billboard charts (including the number one’s Four Walls, Billy Bayou, He’ll Have To Go); Bobby Bare, about to conquer his European fans with Detroit City; and Chet Atkins, celebrated guitar virtuoso and successful RCA producer; along with the Anita Kerr Singers who supplied the modern vocal background to the Nashville sound.

Almost a counter-blow to the British invasion, triggered off by the arrival of the Beatles in New York in February 1964, this was a bold venture by RCA to increase the popularity of country music with European audiences. TELDEC, RCA’s outlet in Germany, welcomed their guests as “the sound of tomorrow … everybody that has made a name for himself as a Western artist in Nashville, the musical center of the USA.”  Several of the shows were recorded and the Oslo concert filmed. Tragically, three months later, Jim Reeves died in a plane crash on July 31, 1964.

To commemorate the 1964 tour and Jim Reeves’ untimely death, Bear Family Records is re-promoting Nashville Stars On Tour, the four cd and one DVD box set that was originally released in 2007. Full track details below.

Looking ahead a couple of months, more historic RCA recordings are set for May when, coinciding with her latest European tour, Bear Family will release Dolly Parton’s complete duet recordings with Porter Wagoner, regarded by many as the great duet team in country music history. When Porter and Dolly began recording in 1967, Porter was the bigger star and newcomer Dolly was a regular on his weekly TV show. By the time of their last duets in 1976, Dolly was one of the biggest stars that country music had ever seen - and Porter's biggest hits were his recordings with Dolly.

Just Between You And Me is a six cd box set and will contain will contain 160 recordings which - besides such hits as Holding On To Nothin', Just Someone I Used To Know, Daddy Was An Old Time Preacher Man, Making Plans and Please Don't Stop Loving Me - will also including rarities and live recordings. The accompanying 80 page hardcover book will feature an in-depth biography by noted journalist and Dolly Parton biographer, Alanna Nash. More details to follow – track listing below.

MICKEY GILLEY RETURNS TO TOURING

MICKEY GILLEY RETURNS TO TOURING
AFTER PARALYZING ACCIDENT IN 2009
 
NASHVILLE, Tenn. (March 19, 2014) – The original Urban Cowboy, Mickey Gilley, is hitting the road and will return to touring after recovering from 2009 tragic accident that left him paralyzed.

“I have always loved performing and I know nothing else,” says Mickey Gilley.  “Getting back on stage in all of these cities is something to look forward to each and every day.  The outpour of love and concern from the fans, my fellow artist friends, and the music community has kept me fighting to walk back on that stage, so I am glad that time is finally here.”

Throughout Gilley’s career, he has released 39 Top-Ten country hits with 17 of them hitting No. 1 on country charts including, Stand By Me, True Love Ways, You Don’t Know Me and A Headache Tomorrow (Or A Heartache Tonight). In 1976, he swept the ACM Awards, receiving Entertainer of the Year, Top Male Vocalist, Song of the Year, Single of the Year and Album of the Year. He has been ranked among the top-fifty country music hit makers in the 1989 book written by record research historian Joel Whitburn.

Aside from his many hits and being known as the cousin to Jerry Lee Lewis and Jimmy Swaggart, Gilley was instrumental in creating the “Urban Cowboy” era with the opening of Gilley’s in 1971 – known as the World’s Largest Honky-Tonk.  The famed-club included mechanical bulls, pool tables, a rodeo area, punching bags, a shooting gallery and a dance floor that could hold thousands becoming the forerunner of Hard Rock Café and other theme restaurants. Esquire Magazine wrote an article “The Ballad of the Urban Cowboy” based on Gilley’s, which later became the movie, “Urban Cowboy,” starring John Travolta.

In 2009, while helping his friend move, Gilley became paralyzed from the neck down after a sofa landed on top of him and crushed four vertebrae.  After several years of intense physical therapy he has returned to the stage and is now walking, singing and performing.
