Complete Velvets CD
The Complete Velvets CD
The Velvets hailed from Odessa, Texas where the Texan panhandle meets the rest of the state.
Discovered by Roy Orbison, The Big O was so impressed with The Velvets that he recommended the group to Fred Foster at Monument Records.
Their second release Tonight took them into the Billboard Hot 100 at #26 and into the UK top 50 and although the follow-up Lana barely dented the American charts, it went to No 1 in Japan.
The Complete Velvets brings you 30 original recordings including all the singles that they made right through until 1966.
Also included are thirteen tracks which have only been available on Japanese releases CD.
The sound quality is superb with the recordings being mastered from the original tapes.
