This past year we celebrated our 20th anniversary with more new products than ever. The centerpiece of our 20th Anniversary was A Beautiful World, an album that included 59 musicians and another dozen or so who helped with everything from production to engineering. We really hope to help Kermit Ruffins finally win a Grammy! In addition to these albums, we released vinyl, anniversary editions of CDs, and even a comic book. Please take a listen to these releases.
We appreciate your Grammy consideration! #LetsGetKermitAGrammy
We are really going to miss the friendship of Henry Butler Music. May he rest in peace. We thought you might appreciate these words from Henry from the liner notes of the first of his three albums we released. He passed away quietly and peacefully this week after a fight with cancer. Click on a panel to enlarge. And here is “Orleans Inspiration” a song he recorded several times. There is also a Henry Butler playlist with many, many gems on our Youtube channel.
