Available Now: Country Rewind Records Release Timeless, A Collection Of Conway Twitty Hits And Hidden Recordings


New York, NY (Top40 Charts) Fans of the late Country Music Hall of Fame member, Conway Twitty, can now purchase TIMELESS, a collection of never-before released songs from one of America's most beloved musical performers of all-time.The album is available onConwayTwitty.com and can be downloaded through all major digital retail outlets.

The songs on TIMELESS haven't been heard since their recording in 1972, included in a series of musical tracks from top artists at the time as part of a United States recruitment program. Performers such as Dolly Parton, George Jones, and Waylon Jennings would record fifteen-minute performances that would be distributed to over 2,000 radio stations throughout the world intended for commercial release. Tom Gramuglia of Country Rewind Records, says that he can't wait for fans to hear these recordings - which put the recorded genius of Conway Twitty on full display for all to hear.

"These recordings were long forgotten and few people who knew of their existence. They've never before been made commercially available to the public and I truly felt like this music needed to be shared with long-time traditional fans, and heard by our younger generation of Millennials who have a flavor and inkling for country music recording artists that made American country music great."

The music on TIMELESS is a mixture of many of the songs that made Conway Twitty a household name, such as his signature song from 1970, "Hello Darlin," as well as a pair of deeper Twitty cuts that are no less historic or powerful - "The Image Of Me" and "Next In Line" (his first top ten and number one hits, respectively) from 1968. His band, the Twitty Birds - featuring steel guitar wizard John "Buttermilk" Hughey, bassist "Big Joe" Lewis, and drummer Tommy "Pork Chop" Markham - are featured on TIMELESS, as well as new musical accompaniment produced by Twitty's daughter and son-in-law, Joni and John Wesley Ryles. Joni - who performed with her father on the 1975 classic "Don't Cry Joni" - says this music is something that Twitty's loyal following will want to add to their collection.

"When I heard it, I was blown away. I couldn't be prouder of Dad's performance, and the Twitty Birds did such a great job. Every Conway Twitty fan needs to hear this. My family could not be more pleased to celebrate his life in music with this compilation of treasures."

While the sessions that comprise TIMELESS weren't the typical Decca recording session with Owen Bradley producing, these tracks - cut at the studio of former Elvis Presley band member Scotty Moore - drip with as much perfection as anything he cut at Bradley's Barn. It wasn't like a typical session where everything was perfected," explained Ryles. "But, these songs are an incredible gift, and Daddy was sounding as incredible as he ever did. These recordings make my heart smile, and I think his fans will feel the same way."

ABOUT COUNTRY REWIND RECORDS:
COUNTRY REWIND RECORDS…Bringing Unreleased Traditional Country Music Into The Contemporary Country Era

Founded by Thomas Gramuglia of Hindsight Records in 2014, Gramuglia obtained a treasure chest of unreleased recordings from recruitment radio shows from the '60s and '70s. The superb CCR collection of original master recordings contains music from more than 100 country music legends and trendsetters (including intimate performances by country music greats such as Loretta Lynn, George Jones, Connie Smith, Faron Young, Dolly Parton and many more).
