Christopher Blue – Happy Just To Be Alive

Christopher blueIn 1970 singer/songwriter/producer Doug Davis inked a deal with Floyd Ramsey’s Phoenix, AZ based Ramco Records. Doug’s band Christopher Blue quickly churned out their first single; “Happy Just To Be Alive” b/w “You’ve Got What I Like.” The success of their debut convinced Ramco to offer Davis his own label imprint. Dubbed “Blue Ram,” the new label issued their first release in 1971, Christopher Blue’s “It’s Not Too Late” b/w “Don’t Worry Tracy.” The label followed up in 1972 with Christopher Blue’s “I’m Gonna Let Her Know” b/w “Floating On A Cloud.” The three 45s were the only recordings from the band, and by the mid 1970s they had faded into obscurity. Enter Fervor Records, who began looking after the Ramco catalogs in 2007. Fervor has breathed new life into these classics, seriously escalating the band’s cult status. This was accomplished via numerous high profile film, television, and major motion picture soundtrack placements including; Mad Men, Vacation (film & soundtrack), The Conjuring 2, Ashby (Main Title Theme & soundtrack), Red Oaks, Hot In Cleveland, The Bridge, Carnage Park and many more. Now you can enjoy the sensational sounds of the 70s with this definitive collection of all of Christopher Blue’s recordings on the Fervor Records release: “Christopher Blue – Happy Just To Be Alive.” Experience now on AmazonApple, Spotify and beyond!

The-Bridge-Season-1-Promo-Poster-1Vintage Country

FX recently premiered a brand new TV series called The Bridge, and has handpicked a song from the Fervor Records Vintage Masters catalog for the 3rd episode.

Based on the Scandanavian series Bron, the American drama is set on the borderlands of El Paso and Juarez, starring Diane Kruger (Troy, National Treasure) and Damien Bichir (Che, Weeds) as law enforcement officers from each side.

This week’s edition will feature Second To You, a 1968 recording by Arizona Country crooner Eddy Eldon.

This lonely Waltz, which was Eldon’s Ramco Records debut, features his charismatic Elvis-like voice on top of some lap-steel twang accented with a little Spanish guitar with the refrain:

Wherever you go, and whatever you do…all the good things in life is a second to you.”

The dusty borderland drama airs episode 103 “Rio” this Wednesday July 24th @ 10pm, and will include Eddy Eldon’s Country ballad, available on the Fervor Records release Vintage Country, 1957-1969
