GOODNIGHT EVERYBODY and SUNNY CALIFORNIA

Periodically I am contacted with questions about these two long out of print recordings. I hope the information below helps.

GOODNIGHT EVERYBODY

Goodnight Everybody was recorded in spring of 1969 and released in the fall of that year. It was my first album and contained no original material. (I started writing songs shortly after its release.) Goodnight Everybody was recorded in Los Angeles for Andy Williams’ Barnaby label – my label mates at the time were the Osmond Brothers!
This album has been out of print for decades – in spite of having been briefly re-issued sometime in the 1970s as Blue Ridge Epitaph on a label called Piccadilly First American – or something like that.

SUNNY CALIFORNIA

Sunny California was recorded at the Philo Records Barn in Vermont in the late 1970s. It has remained one of my favorite recordings.
My understanding was that Philo worked out a distribution deal with Mercury Records for this recording. But it was originally released on Mercury and went largely un-supported.
In the early 1980s Sunny California was re-issued (with a new cover photo) on Philo, and then finally went out of print. It has been my hope that this recording would eventually be re-issued on CD, but at this time it is not available.
