Nate Gibson & the Stars of Starday finally available on CD, 2xLP, and Cassette!

Hooray! The Nate Gibson & the Stars of Starday Kickstarter rewards have all been fulfilled and the double album is at last available to the public via CD [by Bear Family Records w/ 56-page booklet and bonus track], cassette [yellow/black Starday-inspired shell], or vinyl [Deluxe 2xLP in red or black vinyl with digital download card]. Perhaps you already own it but you want a backup preservation copy. Perhaps you want to own it on every available format. Or maybe you know someone who would like it as a gift [and who wouldn't?!]. Either way, anyone can now purchase the album on any format via Discogs: 

And if you buy one of the few remaining red vinyl 2xLP versions, I'll send ya an autographed 8x10 of a Starday Star too!

To celebrate the arrival and availability of the LP, I'm also releasing the third music video from the record: Betty Amos w/ Judy & Jean & Nate Gibson singing 'Eighteen Wheels A Rolling.' Betty Amos was just the second woman ever recorded playing Scruggs-style banjo when this was originally recorded for Starday Records back in '64. Fortunately, the trio is still together and sounding great and it was such a thrill to get to sing this legendary truck-drivin' classic with them. With many thanks to Kenny Vaughan, Chris ScruggsDave Roe, and Pete Finney for making it sound great!
