Monday July 15, 2019 – Rumors started to circulate recently on Facebook (yeah, I know – right?) that Colorado Music Hall of Fame band Sugarloaf had dropped tracks for a new album. Of course original members Jerry Corbetta (lead singer), Bob Yeazel (guitarist) and Bob Raymond (bassist) have all passed away, so the news of some kind of Sugarloaf “reunion” came as a real surprise. Turns out the story has a little truth to it .. .from a family of the band perspective.
According to Bob Raymond‘s son Aaron, “We did go into studio with my son (Bailey Raymond aka Kick Stevens) and re-recorded Don’t Call Us, We’ll Call You and Texas Two Lane. Clark Hagan (local Denver producer) did the producing. He also did a recording of Green-Eyed Lady with (original members) Bob Webber (guitar), Bobby Pickett (bass), Myron Pollack (drums) and another guy from Nashville. Sorry I don’t remember his name. Hope to have the two new songs released this winter. We are still working on the vocals.”
Stay tuned …
I reported last week on the wonderful compilation from Longmont’s Wind Over the Earth recording studio’s “Longmont Project” to benefit Longmont High School’s music program. The new track below from Bridget Law is from that project.
This week, the Boulder Daily Camera has a story on Future Arts Foundation (FAF) and their series called Strings & Stories taking place in Longmont. Future Arts Foundation is “a nonprofit that supplies musical instruments and art materials to public schools and after-school programs.” Strings & Stories is a concert series put together by FAF and 105.5 The Colorado Sound.
