LAS CRUCES, N.M., (CelebrityAccess) — MDI Distribution has struck a distribution deal with legendary rockabilly drummer WS "Fluke" Holland over the release of archival material dating back to the early days of Sun Records. This will be the first time these private films have been released.
Mr. Holland will release a Spoken Word CD titled "Life on the Road with Johnny Cash, The First 20 Years" in May 2015. The CD will include stories culled from Holland's years as a drummer for legendary country artist Johnny Cash. Holland also recorded with other rockabilly greats, including Carl Perkins, Jerry Lee Lewis, Elvis Presley.
"WS knew that the world of rockabilly would love these films and recordings but wanted to wait until the right time came along to release them. As soon as we both felt MDI's passion for the project and their ability to deliver quality product we knew the time is now," said Holland's manager Ron Haney.
Subsequent releases featuring WS will include two full-length, previously unreleased studio collaborations with the Tennessee 3 consisting of Holland, Dave Roe, bass and Cash guitarist, Bob Wootton. These releases represent the final studio projects completed by the Tennessee 3.
Also in the pipeline is a numbered box set featuring the Million Dollar Quartet Recordings, including previously unreleased home and on the road film footage, photographs, vinyl, a Book, Posters, and other material. – Staff Writers
