Billy Harlan - "Boppin' At Studio B" CD
Billy Harlan has returned to the historic RCA Studio B after a 57-year hiatus thanks to the Country Music Hall of Fame & Muddy Roots Records! In 1959 Billy recorded his own album after years of touring with Dave Rich, Jim Reeves, and the Wilburn Brothers as a bass player, doing session work for Chet Atkins and writing songs for many others including Hawkshaw Hawkins. It was shelved which lead to Harlan leaving Nashville to pursue another career out west. Billy returned to tour the studio in recent years to find a picture of himself with other musicians displayed in the entryway. When they found out he still performed live music in Kentucky and at rockabilly festivals worldwide they were excited to invite him back into the studio to wrap up the unfinished business he had with Chet but this time with Muddy Roots Records.
We are truly honored to be able to work on this project with Billy, his band and the engineers at the studio. The album was recorded the old style, with all musicians performing together in one room showing us young whipper snappers how the pros did it "back in the day."
Be sure to catch Billy Harlan perform at both Viva Las Vegas & the Nashville Boogie Vintage Weekender in 2016!
