The Cincinnati USA Music Heritage Foundation (CMHF), a nonprofit, run by volunteers from an underground music community since 12.03.07 has a fresh vinyl pressing from a recording session in the Historic Herzog Studios space. It’s the first vinyl pressing of the modern Herzog era and features Dr. Johnny Walker, Matthew Ayers and Kane Kitchen of All-Seeing Eyes.
Since CMHF has occupied with 60th anniversary sessions for Hank Williams and Flatt & Scruggs and officially through the City Historic Marker dedication with the 2009 CEAs, CMHF has been archiving as many performances, rehearsals, and sessions as possible. A few digital releases have made it out if you look. There is also a limited edition letterpress of a Keith Neltner design card for Come Play the Lost Notebooks of Hank Williams At Herzog from 12.22.11 with a digital download code around. This 7”, however, marks the first vinyl release. The songs “Opening” and “Terror Plane Blues” are from a Eli’s BBQ staff and friends party for the Reds Opening Day Parade 3.31.14.
May this be the start of more pressings with the E.T. Herzog Recording Company label. Sponsors interested in making record history should come this show, which will also be recorded.
The Cincinnati USA Music Heritage Foundation invites everyone who can fit into the Historic Herzog Studios space to celebrate this release while also paying respects and honoring another line of history Cincinnati’s King Records has with the seminal song “The Train Kept A-Rollin’” and honor Mr. Philip Paul.
On the 60th anniversary of the 7.25.51 Tiny Bradshaw session for the first “Train Kept a-Rollin” released on King Records, CMHF organized the Train Kept A-Rollin’ Guitar Army for a Fountain Square show. This footage will be projected in Herzog for this party where every band will perform “Train Kept A-Rolling” in their set.
