Three special edition vinyl albums from the late Charlie Daniels are set for release ahead of the holiday season via Bob Frank Distribution (BFD)/Audium Nashville and Blue Hat Records.
The albums include Daniels’ Off The Grid: Doin’ It Dylan (Silver) vinyl, available Nov. 3 as well as Memories, Memoirs & Miles: Songs of a Lifetime (Orchid Purple) vinyl, available Nov. 17, and Night Hawk (Black) vinyl, available Nov. 24. Each vinyl is limited to 1,000 individually numbered units available for purchase via The Orchard.
Off the Grid: Doin’ It Dylan is a tribute album to Bob Dylan that was released in 2014. When Daniels first moved to Nashville, he played guitar on three of Dylan’s albums. Daniels attributed playing on these albums to helping him learn about the music business and especially for showing him how to lead his own band.
“Along with our partners at BFD, we are excited about the launch of new vinyl releases of some of Charlie’s most cherished works,” adds David Corlew, Blue Hat Records Partner and Daniels’ longtime manager. “These projects were so special to Charlie as he paid tribute to some of Dylan’s wonderful songs as well as sharing the music and lifestyle he so dearly loved, the life of the working cowboy. This bed of work offers a broad stroke of Charlie’s musical creativity, with beautiful packaging by Erick Anderson. These are a must for anyone’s vinyl collection.”
Night Hawk was originally released in 2016. The album is Daniels’ take on classic cowboy country, honoring tales told by cowboys around a campfire, with a mixture of re-worked classics and more obscure tunes.
Originally released in 2017, Daniels’ Memories Memoirs & Miles: Songs of a Lifetime contains some of his biggest hits including “Long Haired Country Boy,” “Still in Saigon,” “Simple Man,” “The Devil Went Down to Georgia,” “Uneasy Rider” and more.
“This is the first wave of Charlie Daniels releases we have strategically mapped out for the next 18 months with many more to come,” explains Bob Frank, Blue Hat Records Partner and Bob Frank Entertainment Founder & CEO. “The archive is vast and we are all thrilled to start this campaign.”
