Hits from the Hill

It’s been more than 50 years since The Champagne Brothers first recorded their hit It’s Raining at Houston’s legendary SugarHill Recording Studios.  But, thanks the engaging new two disk release from SugarHill Studios, Hits from the Hill, this 1967 chart topper will be heard again by longtime fans and for the first time by new audiences.  The sensational version of It’s Raining featured on Hits from the Hill was recorded at SugarHill studios in a special session in 2004.  

SugarHill is celebrating the release of Hits from the Hill with a bash at Continental Club on Sunday, December 4.  The lineup, including Allen Oldies Band, Roy Head, Don Sanders, Champion Sisters, Chet Daniels, Kenny Cordray‘s Love Street, John Evans, Glenna Bell and Row Zero is sure to make for a fun filled afternoon.  Admission is free, but all proceeds from CD sales go to benefit the Musicians’ Benevolent Society of Houston.

Note: Kenny Cordray’s amazing guitar playing is featured on Chickawawa, the upcoming solo release from Charles Champagne, in the title track.  The album also features a version of It’s Raining and will be available for purchase very soon.
