Happy New Year folks! To ring in 2014, we thought we would implement 4 permanent free downloads and one limited-time gift free download as a gift, and a celebration of a successful and exciting 2013!
First, we would like to offer as a special gift from us to you, the 2008 album “Waylon Forever” featuring Waylon Jennings & Shooter Jennings’ band at the time, the .357’s! All you have to do is submit your email below, and album will download in it’s entirety.
In addition to this, we would like to offer four more free downloads that will remain on the site permanently. First off there’s BCR007, BCR008 & BCR009, a three part free compilation series released in 2011 on the now defunct GiveMeMyXXX.com. These collections were meant to showcase the growing underground country and roots scene by offering one song by each artist as a taste of what is out there. Back by popular demand, we offer them below:
Last, but definitely not least, is Shooter Jennings’ outtakes album “Missed the Boat: A Collection of Demos and Rarities”. This album features demos, unreleased tracks and more spread from his first album all the way through 2010. Highlights include “Wake Up! (Pig Flu Mix)”, the Shellac cover “Letter to God” and the unreleased track “For All Debts, Public and Private”. Just enter your email address below to begin downloading:
Thank you to all of the fans who have supported the launch of our new company and helped us kick things off to a great start. We had some delays in the shipping department but most of you have received your BCR pre-ordered products and the products that have been ordered recently are being shipped out as quickly as possible. We’re just getting started and we are already looking ahead to the future and next year’s new releases. We promise that you won’t be disappointed in what we have up our sleeves for 2014 and we will be sharing that special news with you some time next month. In the mean time, Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year from all of us (especially office assistant John Mayer) here at BCR Headquarters!

Presented on translucent yellow Vinyls & Cassettes, and CD’s beautifully designed by design partner Keith Neltner, this recording is an analog remastering of Waylon’s 1996 Justice Records release “Right for the Time”. In a unique pairing, Justice records and BCR Nashville have teamed up to re-release this memorable album of the late great Waylon Jennings. Transferred from the original 1/2″ reel-to-reel tapes, remastered directly for vinyl by Pete Lyman, this pure analog version of the record really pursues the methods and morals that producer Randall Jamail was after when he first recorded it.

Recorded September 19th, 2013 at “The Event” at Cain’s Ballroom in Tulsa, Oklahoma, this live album shows that soul never fades. From the first note the first lady of Outlaw Country strikes on her grand piano to the last bombastic chord of her electric band, Jessi Colter shines, overflowing with charm and charisma, and not to mention a few very personal moments. This is the first and only live record Ms. Colter has recorded and such a rare treat wouldn’t be complete with it’s own twists and turns. Jessi is joined by her son, Shooter, on a few of the tunes, such a humble performance really makes you feel lucky to be able to be there… or simulate being there by listening along.
