==== PARK AVE CDs: Orlando's Finest Music Emporium! ====

Unreleased recordings by Steve Young and Junior Brown are among the highlights of this album! -Singer, songwriter, producer and label owner Jim Terr has gone into the tape archive for Bear Family Recordsr and compiled 21 wonderful songs for this CD album. -Recordings from 1970 to 2022, singer/songwriter, folk and country music - some released here for the first time, including tunes by the great Steve Young and alternative-country superstar Junior Brown! -The album presents a selection of New Mexico's rich music scene, mostly songs written by the artists themselves. -Producer Jim Terr has written the liner notes with information and pictures on all the artists. -The recordings, spanning five decades, have been carefully remastered. -With 'Treasures from the Blue Canyon Vaults' we want to highlight handmade music from New Mexico on the colorful musical map of the USA. Before leaving office in 1881, New Mexico Governor Lew Wallace summed up his view of the territory in a line often quoted today: Every calculation based on experience elsewhere fails in New Mexico. The author of 'Ben Hur' could not have predicted that the outlaw-infested territory would later contain more physicists per capita than any other state! This wild, untamed land remains eccentric, the perfect breeding ground for artistic expression of every sort, including music. This album called 'Treasures from the Blue Canyon Vaults' is a brilliant demonstration of New Mexico's varied musical talent. While not pretending to be a true survey of the spectrum of New Mexico music (which would contain more Hispanic and Native American music), it nonetheless represents a startlingly original mix. With the exception of Tom T. Hall's She Gave Her Heart to Jethro and the trucker classic, Phantom 309, all the songs are originals by artists and producers who live in New Mexico, or spent a lot of time there.
