Orion Live In Concert 1979 CD


Bookmark and Share

This is the one!! The first ever CD release on the historic Boblo label!! From 1979, this was Orion's debut concert in Athens, Alabama prior to his move to Nashville to full-fill the Orion legend on Sun Records with Shelby Singleton. Orion is backed by the powerful band Universe put together by Nick Scott who also produced some of Orion's recordings. This CD is a prime example of the dedication and hard work Boblo President, Bobby Smith put into his artists. Although he turned down a 17-year old Jimmy Ellis in 1963 and again in 1977, Bobby produced some of Orion's best material at Sun Studios, as well as the Ellis Sings Elvis LP in Brunswick, GA that is a huge collector's item today.

Although there is a minor 1/2 second blip after the music break on the "I Forgot to Remember to Forget" track, the CD is just outstanding....the liner notes give a concise history of Bobby Smith's Orion experience. After all, Bobby and Nick Scott were there throughout all the Orion days and nights with Sun.

This CD is part of history that all Orion fans will enjoy for many years!! Thanks, Bobby Smith!
