Product Description

Country music written and performed by singer/songwriter Sam Neely.

About the Artist

Born in Cuero, Texas on August 22, 1948, Sam Neely said he fell in love with the guitar at age 10. Sam's family later moved to Corpus Christi, Texas, where by age 15 Neely was playing guitar in bands at local dances. Around 1966 he joined a local band called Buckle, and gained his first recording experience with that group.

At age 19 Sam, while watching the "Merv Griffin" TV show, saw a movie producer ask for song submissions for a soundtrack he was working on. Sam submitted some material, and that was the start of his professional music career.

With the help of a Hollywood movie producer, Sam soon signed with Capitol Records and found immediate success with his top 20 pop hit "Lovin'You Just Crossed My Mind." That song and Sam's two Capitol LPs that followed set off a whirlwind of activity that brought him to perform at the Palomino, Bitter End, and Troubador, to TV appearances on "American Bandstand," "Midnight Special," and other shows, and to sharing the concert stage with such acts as Juice Newton, the Guess Who, and such emerging country acts as Con Hunley, Janie Fricke, and John Conlee.

Neely's follow-up Capitol single, "Rosalie," went top 40, an A&M single, "You Can Have Her," went top 20, and a later release, "I Fought the Law," went top 40. He joined A&M Records for a brief time beginning in 1974, and cut several songs for Elektra from 1976-78, but by 1980 he moved back to Texas, where the only recording he did was for Mickey Gilley's Astro record label. Along the way Sam placed songs in two movie soundtracks, "Bonnie's Kids," which featured his song "Blue Time," and "Tilt," starring Brooke Shields, which included his "Long Road to Texas." But sensing that his songwriting and recording efforts were not gaining momentum, Sam turned his energy to operating a successful Corpus Christi nightclub, Neely's, and toward performing at area concerts.

In 1982 regional MCA Records employee Roger Ramsey brought Sam to the attention of the label's Nashville staff producer and A&R executive Ron Chancey, who brought Neely to the label in early 1983. "Much of my early music fits into the standards of today's country sound,"

Sam has written and performed numerous hit songs, including; "Rosalie", "You Can Have Her", "I Fought The Law", "Loving you just crossed my mind", "Long road to Texas", "Jesse California", "O'Molly B", "Get down on your Knee's and pray", and many, many more. He also has written title songs for two movies, "Bonnies Kids" and "Tilt", starring Brooke Shields.

Along with the movies, Sam had the honor to sing the final song of the final episode for television's M*A*S*H series, "Goodbye, Farewell, and Amen".The song was entitled, "The Party's Over (Farewell To M*A*S*H)".

Sam is also one of the very few artist to have recorded with four major recording labels; Capital, A&M, Electra, and MCA Records.

Here's a brief list of entertainers and groups that Sam has worked with.

Brooke Shields, Del Shannon, Asleep At The Wheel, Steve Wariner, Jimmy Buffet, Jerry Jeff Walker, Hank Williams Jr., Johnny Rodriguez, The Guess Who, Rick Nelson, Tom T. Hall, George Strait, and the Zombies

A Golden Addy Award was presented to Sam by the American Advertising Federation to Sam for his writing and singing the music used in a regional Coors Beer commercial.

Sam Neely has written and performed title songs for several major motion pictures. His songs have reached 13 times or better in Billboard magazine's Top 40 as a recording artist/song writer with record sales worldwide. Sam has recorded for 4 major recording labels; Capital, A&M, Electra, and MCA Records. He has appeared on numerous television shows including two appearances on American Bandstand, Midnight Special, Nashville Now, and several television specials. He sang the final song for the final episode of television's M*A*S*H series. He has also won a Golden Addy Award for a Coors radio commercial. Additionally, Sam has, and continues to write songs for other recording artists. BAND_MEMBERS: List of musicians for Sam Neely's Son Of The South

I have been waiting since early 70's to hear Sam's destinct voice and musical style again. He's an artist who doesn't fit the norm of any category, except maybe Home. The songs fill a familiar niche from the first time they are heard

Sam and I were born in the same town (Cuero, Texas) less than three months apart. I did not know Sam then, however, in the early 70s I became a great fan of his easy, down home music that speaks of everyday life. I have all of Sam's earlier albums and "Son of the South" is a great maturing of Sam's voice and music. I would recommend it to anyone. What can I say other than it is great music that takes me back home to the country every time I listen to it. The songs he writes and sings are of everyday life and mimic many of my own experiences. I only hope that Sam continues to furnish such great music. Also, if Sam's earlier albums were remastered and reissued on compact disc every Sam fan would have more of his great music to enjoy.
P.S. Sam's first album "Long Road To Texas" is now available on remastered CD directly from Sam at his website. Hopefully Amazon will not mind a little competition since this is a self-marketed CD of Sam's. Any Sam fans should certainly like this CD in addition to "Son Of The South". Happy listening.

Sam has a unique style that will grab any progressive country fan. If you remember "Loving you just crossed my mind" you will remember that no-one on the planet can intrepet a tune like Sam Neely.This latest effort, Son of the South is no exception. Check it out. I guarantee you wont regret it. If Texas country with a soulful wail is your bag, then Sam Neely is the fresh air you've been needing! I give it five stars!!!! Steve Weldon

Iv'e been a Sam Neely fan since 1975, and I'm thrilled to see that Sam has something new. I have all of his albums (yes, those
big round black things you play on a record player/stereo)and the
clarity of this cd is great. Sam's voice is wonderful on this
project, I especially like tracks 6 (Here I Am Again) and 7 (Love
Carries On).
Thanks Sam for the GREAT music, and hope you release something soon, we miss ya!

Buy it and take it home. You will be listening to "A Legend", over and over again. Sam Neely's singing and songwriting has never been better. His songwriting will truly amaze you, because he shares his own experiences with you, his fans. Sam is truly "THE SON OF THE SOUTH"! I look forward to his next, up and coming CD.

Sam Neely's distinctive voice stays with you, his songs bringing back the memories of those earlier times in our lives. His theme, Son Of The South, strikes a note deep in all of us. Sam's voice has that slight and constant vibrato so noteworthy of the BeeGees, but with a great deal more finesse and skill. The music is superb, performed by other sons of the south ... one of whom is Sam's own son, a musician of considerable skill. I give it 5 stars. Thanks Sam.
