  • Campbell Glen - Old Home Town / Letter To Home / It’s Just A Matter Of Time 2CD (CD)


    The three albums that Glen Campbell made for the Atlantic American label between 1982 and 1985 are on this 2CD set together with a rarity – the bonus track ‘They Still Dance To Waltzes In England’. This track was specially recorded for British release to coincide with his appearance at the 1984 International Festival of Country Music held in Wembley.

    Although he might have been originally known as a Country artist, it would be an injustice to pigeon-hole him as his music defied categorisation and attracted all manner of audiences. As he once remarked, “There are only two kinds of music – good and bad”.

    Glen Travis Campbell had displayed musical ability from his earliest days. The seventh son of twelve children, he was born into a poor farming family on April, 22nd 1936, in Billstown near Delight, Arkansas. Like many other children he was picking cotton virtually as soon as he could walk.

    Music was the family comfort for all the hard times and he started playing guitar when he was four years old learning from his Uncle Bob on a five dollar guitar that he’d given him. Within two years he was performing on local radio!

    Glen’s guitar skills quickly took him to top echelon level and he became associated with the much-lauded Wrecking Crew (which also included Leon Russell, Barney Kessel and James Burton in its ranks).

    He played guitar on recordings by artists such as Dean Martin, Frank Sinatra, Bobby Darin, The Beach Boys (he briefly replaced Brian Wilson on Bass and high vocals), the Monkees, The Mamas and The Papas and Elvis Presley.

    Glen Campbell died on August 8th, 2017 after a long battle with Alzheimer’s and was laid to rest the next day in the Campbell Family Cemetery in Billstown, Arkansas.

    First time on CD for this compilation.

  • Tucker Tanya - Delta Dawn / What’s Your Mama’s Name Would You Lay With Me (In A Field Of Stone) / You Are So Beautiful (2CD) (CD)


    The 13 year old singing sensation was signed by Billy Sherrill who was the A&R Head of Epic/Columbia Records in Nashville.

    With vocals that hardly revealed the singer’s tender years, producer Billy Sherrill was reluctant to disclose Tanya’s age but the news leaked out and possibly added greater capital to the singer’s launch than any high-priced promotional campaign.

    Here we have the four albums that Tanya Tucker recorded for Columbia Records available for the first time in one package: “Delta Dawn” (1972), “What’s Your Mama’s Name” (1973), “Would You Lay With Me (In A Field Of Stone)” (1974) and “You Are So Beautiful” (1977).

    Contains 10 chart hits including four #1’s.

    Surprisingly, although she had received several nominations over the years, it wasn’t until 1991, that Tanya Tucker won her first Country Music Association award as Female Vocalist of the Year.

    Now a veteran on the country scene Tanya is still out there touring and giving dynamic performances.

    In 2016, after several more accolades to her credit, she collected the prestigious Cliffie Stone Pioneer Award from the West Coast’s Academy of Country Music, a fine tribute to an artist whose career began right here with these unforgettable recordings.

  • Wynette Tammy - One Of A Kind / Womanhood / Just Tammy (2CD) (CD)


    Tammy was born Virginia Wynette Pugh on May, 5th 1942 in Tremont, Mississippi and always dreamed of being a country singer. No doubt success also had a place in that dream although great superstardom may not have figured in her imagination.

    • In 1977 when the first of the three albums in this collection was released, Tammy Wynette had been recording for almost twelve years. ‘One Of A Kind’, that album’s title track was to become her 40th chart success.

    • It was a changing time in country music. Tammy, with her distinctive voice and heart-break songs, followed in the footsteps of Kitty Wells, Loretta Lynn and Patsy Cline. The doors were opening for female artists (hitherto mainly a male domain) and just six weeks after Tammy made her debut, Dolly Parton made her first chart appearance with ‘Dumb Blonde’ which she certainly wasn’t!

    • The second album “Womanhood” was released in 1978. The title track was the first single taken from the album. It was penned by Bobby Braddock who had given the singer ‘D-I-V-O-R-C-E’ ten years earlier. The second single taken from the album ‘I’d Like To See Jesus (On The Midnight Special)’ relates to the famed DJ Wolfman Jack and the Midnight Special TV Show.

    • “Just Tammy” from 1979 contained two singles ‘They Call It Making Love’ and ‘No-one Else In The World’.

    • Tammy Wynette’s name never vanished from the charts right up until her death on April, 6th 1998 at the tragically early age of 55. She was inducted into the Country Music Hall of Fame later that year.

    • All three albums appear for the first time on CD.

  • Robbins Marty - The Drifter / Saddle Tramp / What God Has Done / Christmas With (2CD) (CD)


    Marty Robbins was a country music superstar who crossed boundaries, enjoyed chart success in both the country and pop listings and in concert, presented a show that pleased equally varied audiences. Whether it was a stone country song or a gunfighter tale, up-tempo rockabilly, gospel or pop standard or a haunting melody from the far-away Caribbean or Hawaii, all were handled with equal ease in his highly recognisable baritone styling.

    Marty Robbins’ music diversity shows through in the four albums brought together for this collection, headed up with his much beloved western songs. “The Drifter” is the original 1966 release and includes ‘Mr. Shorty’, a lengthy story song that ranks among the finest of his gunfighter ballads.

    Also from 1966 the second set of western songs “Saddle Tramp” gets its first public airing here as, originally, it was only previously available to members of the Columbia Record Club in the USA and Canada.

    What God Has Done” was released in 1966 and features inspirational songs blending Robbins’ originals among them. The title track and ‘A Little Spot Of Heaven’ with traditional songs of faith like ‘The Great Speckled Bird’ and ‘Will The Circle Be Unbroken’ both well-established within country music repertoires.

    Christmas With Marty Robbins” was released in 1967 and, like the preceding inspirational album also included a handful of new songs. A couple, ‘Merry Christmas From Me To You’ and ‘A Christmas Prayer’ were penned by the artist and fit perfectly alongside the familiar hymns and seasonal material.

    Marty Robbins died on December 8th 1982 at a far too young 57 but lived long enough to witness his induction into Nashville’s prestigious Country Music Hall of Fame, the highest honour to be bestowed upon a country music entertainer.

  • Brown Jim Ed - Best Of Jim Ed Brown / Jim Ed & Helen Cornelius Greatest Hits (CD)


    Jim Ed Brown was part of the brother-and-sister trio The Browns who clocked up twenty country hits between 1955 and 1967.

    The first ten tracks on this collection feature some of Jim Ed’s solo hit records from 1967 to 1973 which include three Top 10 hits ’Pop A Top’, ’Morning’ and ’Southern Loving’.

    A further development in Jim Ed Brown’s career came in 1976 when he teamed with Helen Cornelius. The result was a No. 1 with ’I Don’t Want To Have To Marry You’ launching country music’s teaming of talents and recognition coming their way with the CMA’s Vocal Duo of the Year accolade.
