- April 20th, 2018 Gary Stewart on the Cover Of The Rolling Stone!
- April 14th, 2018 Our first ever Record Store Day release is a real humdinger
Gary Stewart's previously unreleased Motown demos from 1970 are the recordings that blew the mind of legendary producer Roy Dea, leading him on a multi-year crusade to get Gary a record deal, and to produce his records. We were beyond thrilled to find the tapes - which were presumed lost - after a ten year search, and we're equally excited to get them out into the world. “I'm a hillbilly,” Dea told reporter Jimmy McDonough in the Village Voice in 1988: “but my background is rock’n’roll, rhythm and blues. Country’s kind of a bore. I never knew anyone who blew me away like Gary, an’ I seen Elvis, Hank Williams – all of ‘em. You get hooked on Stewart – he’s like a damn drug.” Photo of Gary Stewart and his friend / writing partner in the 1960s, Bill Eldridge courtesy of Tommy Schwartz
