This never released album was recorded in 1972, but will ‘for the first time’ be available February 19, 2016. Even though promotional copies were pressed, Benny… would never come out due to a fire at the recording studio & label, which destroyed the masters and most of the stock. The few records that survived can be found on collector websites.

Many people know Benny Hester thanks to his successful career as a contemporary Christian artist and television producer of the Nickelodeon/MTV Networks series, Roundhouse. However, before all of that he was just a young songwriter kicking around Las Vegas. It was there that Benny met Brent Maher, a young engineer & producer at United Recording, who would later be awarded 6 Grammys. The two became fast friends in the early ‘70s and recorded what would be Benny’s very first album using Elvis Presley’s TCB Band made up of Ron Tutt, James Burton, Glen Hardin and Jerry Scheff, as well as Larry Muhoberac and Joe Osborn. Benny… is an absolute musical gem. Songs like “Give Your Love Forever” and “No The End Is Not Near” call to mind The Beatles Revolver, ELO and Nilsson.

Benny… will finally be released using the artists’ own promotional copy of the vinyl. Digitally remastered.
