Coming up in May, Righteous we have the following releases:
Songs From Hank - George Jones / Jack Scott
Two fine collections hailing the work of the late great American songwriter and travelling troubadour Hank Williams. 24 classic Hank Williams’ tracks delivered in truly contrasting styles from two hard-to-find albums. Featuring George Jones’ brooding late ‘50s opus ‘George Jones Salutes Hank Williams’ in all its glorious melancholy. Plus rock ‘n’ roll renegade Jack Scott’s soulful croon and mellow lip-curl on ‘I Remember Hank Williams’ from 1961. Silky sweet country sounds celebrating the genre’s legendary Godfather delivered by the bittersweet George Jones and the infectious tones of Jack Scott.
Lonely Blue Boy - Conway Twitty
Long lost classic albums from an unheralded hero of early rock ‘n’ roll as recently raved about by Noel Gallagher in MOJO magazine. 24 tracks filled with primal rock ‘n’ roll swagger from his 1960 much sought after album "Lonely Boy Blue” and his debut offering from 1958 "Conway Twitty Sings”. Packed with attitude! Sentence rolling angst with more than a nod to Elvis at his most forthright and law-breaking best! Featuring Great versions of Presley faves ‘Blue Moon’, ‘Heartbreak Hotel’ along with his very own debut hit ‘It’s Only Make Believe’. Plus classic R’n’R posturing on the effusive ‘I Vibrate’ and the teen anthem ‘Trouble In Mind’ along with some emotive anthems including ‘You’ll Never Walk Alone’ and a great take on Ray Charles’ ‘Hallelujah I Love Her So’.
