I noticed an ad on SGN’s site for a CD called Vestal Goodman: The Unsurpassed Masters Volume 1. You can find it here. I’ve never heard of Worthington Music Group, but this is an interesting concept for a CD. Included in the testimonial section is a quote from Rick Goodman, and judging from the fact that these recordings are supposedly rehearsal tapes, etc. from the family archives, my guess is that he was involved in the production of this CD. There have been some, shall we say, dubious discussions about some of Rick’s efforts in keeping the Goodman legacy going, but I will say this is a more kosher move, and one that is much more intriguing for Goodmans fans. These kind of recordings are fairly common in secular circles, my Beach Boys box has several rehearsal tracks, demos, and studio outtakes. It sounds like an interesting CD concept for SG. I for one hope that is does well enough to inspire similar kinds of recordings from other legendary artists. I sure would love to hear rehearsal tapes and demos by the Statesmen, Blackwoods, or Imperials!
