Bill Hunt, President of Cow Island Records (in Northampton), writes:
We could not be more pleased or proud to proclaim that Big Sandy and his Fly-Rite Boys have officially joined the Cow Island posse. That’s right, this summer What a Dream It’s Been, an album of all-new recordings featuring Big Sandy, Ashley Kingman, Jeff West, and Joe Perez will be released on Cow Island Music.
What a Dream It’s Been celebrates 25 years of non-stop entertaining by Big Sandy and his always top-notch Fly-Rite Boys. It includes twelve Big Sandy originals, newly arranged and recorded with acoustic instruments in a multitude of musical styles. From Rockabilly to Swing, Honky-Tonk to Doo Wop, it’s all here, performed by Big Sandy with his beautiful voice full of heart and soul.
On a more personal note, when Marci and I were together, we saw a lot of great music and talented performers. But Big Sandy was Marci’s favorite, hands down, which makes this extra special for me.
So come on, let’s all get behind Big Sandy and show the rest of the world just how talented a singer, songwriter, and bandleader he is.
Keep your eyes peeled for a release this summer on CD and vinyl. In the meantime, be sure to catch Big Sandy and his Fly-Rite Boys in your hometown!
Thanks for your continued support of real American Music.
