2019 is already shaping up to be a great year! The Harvey Thompson Trio’s Muscle Shoals Jazz album will be our first release of the year with new albums by Mark Narmore and Charlie Taylor following suit. There are a few more projects in the pipeline that we’ll announce soon and the Crazy Chester Radio Hour is resuming its weekly schedule.
2018 saw the release of albums by Carla Russell, Jacye and Cowboy, which was our first Record Store Day release. The year started off with Andreas Werner producing the Alabama Music Hall of Fame’s induction show, then The Songs Of The Shoals show followed in March and the Muscle Shoals Allstars homecoming show in June. The Crazy Chester Radio Hour hit its second year with many memorable guests.
Tony Joe White unexpectedly passed away on Wednesday. Tony Joe was a hero for all of us at Crazy Chester Records and we are heartbroken. He wrote a song and played on Carla Russell’s album.
Donnie Fritts played a duo show with Andreas Werner this past Tuesday, October 23 at Champy’s in Muscle Shoals. Thanks everyone for coming out!
