Got a date on that, Greg? Thanks for posting.

Mark - Seems like 1966 - 1969 would be a good estimate as to when this record was done.

In November 1968, Billboard reported the following: "(Dick) Heard started (the) Royal American (label) when he moved from New York to Nashville last March. Previously, he was career consultant to country stars Nat Stuckey, Van Trevor, Johnny Dollar, and Lynda K. Lance" (all of whom are on this record, by the way).

By May of '69, Dollar was no longer affiliated with Heard, according to the 5/3/69 issue of Billboard.

Greetings, surprised you found this. we all moved to Nashville, Dick Heard, Van Trevor,Eddie Rabbitt & myself(right after HS graduation & Viet Nam)at the end of '68.Neil Bogart of Buddah(later Casablanca Records)was setting up a label(Royal American) in Nashville under Dick Heards management. Dick and Eddie were in Greenwich Village NY. Van & I met doing performances in the Northeast. this was Dicks idea to borrow something we all took part in regularly for the CMA, PSAs by country music entertainers held in recording studios on Music Row. we would all line up at the mike,a real cattle call, walk thru read copy, sometimes with call letters.that's when you got to hear Tex Ritter tell all his great old stories.glad to see so many collectors like me of info out there. ck my website to see new stuff...wanted to call project "not dead yet"...but wouldn't you know, it was taken!
