Unprecedented Music Release Campaign to Celebrate Vince Hill’s 55 Years In Music!
In May 2017, Coventry born singer Vince Hill celebrates 55 YEARS since he released his first solo record. To mark this very special occasion there is an unprecedented music release campaign involving some of Britain’s biggest record labels such as Parlophone Records (Warner Music), Sony Music, BMG and Cherry Red Records.
The new releases include over 21 original albums arriving for the very first time on digital download and three new CDs – most importantly being Vince’s all-new ‘Legacy‘ album – a stunning CD collection of his original hit singles, film soundtracks and rarities from the 1960s & ’70s.
Vince Hill is a multi-million selling recording artist best known for his 1960s mega-hit “Edelweiss”. To date, Vince has released 25 studio albums, recorded theme songs for 5 motion picture soundtracks including The Railway Children and earned a national and international reputation through hit records and sold-out performances at some of the world’s most prestigious concert venues such as the Sydney Opera House, London’s Royal Albert Hall and the London Palladium.
To coincide with Vince’s landmark anniversary Warner Music, Sony Music, Cherry Red Records, BMG, President Records and Demon Music Group are re-issuing much of his life’s work from the 60s, 70s, 80s and 90s, which until now was virtually unavailable. Over 300 recordings have been digitally re-mastered from original master tapes and will be re-issued on a variety of new original album and new compilation releases.
As well as these classic albums, June 9th sees the release of ‘Legacy‘ a CD containing Vince’s complete Warner-owned Greatest Hits including the million seller “Edelweiss” and Top 15 hits “Take Me To Your Heart Again” and “Look Around” alongside highlights from other rare A&B side singles and original studio albums – 11 of the songs debut on CD. The CD also features the 3 film soundtrack songs Vince recorded for Motion Pictures ‘The Railway Children’, ‘Cast A Giant Shadow’ and ‘The Long Duel’. Many of these recordings were made at Abbey Road Studios during the 1960s when Vince recorded more regularly than The Beatles!
