– The Grascals pay tribute to The Andy Griffith Show with the release their newest disc, "Dance 'Til Your Stockings Are Hot and Ravelin' (A Tribute To The Music of the Andy Griffith Show)" later this month.
Available digitally via BluGrascal Records/Saguaro Road Records on March 29 and via CD on June 7, the 7-song EP features tunes that were an integral and humorous part of the show's eight-year run. The disc's release coincides with The Andy Griffith Show's celebration of its 50th anniversary.
The EP includes one original song written and recorded in the spirit of the sweetly-comical series, Boy, Giraffes Are Selfish alongside songs such as Dooley, Boil Them Cabbage Down, Stay All Night (Stay A Little Longer), Ol' Joe Clark, Leaning On The Everlasting Arms and Mayberry's Finest Theme.
The Grascals' guitarist, Terry Eldredge, is a longtime fan of the show and said he has seen each episode numerous times. "The Andy Griffith Show had a moral lesson that every human being should live by," Eldredge said. "It's an honor and privilege to be associated with the best TV show ever made. It was - and still is - awesome family entertainment."
