With the release of 'Greetings From Texas' and 'Greetings From Tennessee', '?and more bears records' inaugurated its project on regional music. Now we have added 'Greetings from Oklahoma, 'Greetings From Hawaii,' 'Greetings From Georgia,' and 'Greetings from Alabama.'

Each CD in the series features a generous collection of songs focused upon a particular state. In true '?and more bears' fashion, we will include both well-known titles (such as Oklahoma Hills and Everybody Does It In Hawaii) as well as more obscure items drawn from the 'deep catalogue' of numerous record companies. No matter how much of a patriot or a record collector you are, this series will manage to surprise you. Each entry will also feature a blend of famous artists like Hank Williams and Willie Nelson rubbing shoulders with singers who were barely household names in their own homes. Their common goal is to sing the pride of life in a particular state.

States have separate identities that help Americans distinguish themselves from one another. When 'Tonight Show' host Jay Leno happens to mention the name of a state during his nightly monologue, it's usually followed by scattered but wild cheering from the audience. Everyone understands. That noisy response is telling millions of people, ''I'm from there! I'm so proud of being from Tennessee or Alabama or Virginia that I'm sitting here shouting and applauding like a fool.'' Being proud of where you come from is a passionate business and sometimes that pride just can't be contained by national borders. This series is all about regional pride (''I'm an American, hell yes! But I'm also a Texan!'').

Each CD will be accompanied by a humorous but informative essay by music historian Hank Davis. The songs we select will represent the decades from the 1940s through the 1990s, although the lion's share of the selections will be more vintage or 'classic' country music. Read more at:
