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.
