ATLANTA, GA – A throng of music fans and media from the Southeast converged at Atlanta’s Smith’s Olde Bar on August 12 to celebrate the release (August 17) of the late and legendary Piano Red’s The Lost Atlanta Tapes CD on Landslide Records. Produced by Michael Reeves and David Fulmer for Bang Bang Lulu Productions, The Lost Atlanta Tapes features 18 songs recorded live at Atlanta’s Excelsior Mill in 1984, and represents the iconic entertainer’s last known recording. It features some of his best-known classic songs and fan favorites. All of the performances on the new CD are previously unreleased, and eight of the tracks are songs that have never been released before on a Piano Red recording.
