    Benny, "The best album that was never released". In 1972, recently converted to Christianity, working with Elvis' TCB band and some of the  finest musicians of the era, Benny Hester could finish their first album,  was pressed and would be the debut album of Benny, never imagining that a few days after, a fire would end with the recording studio and warehouse of record label.



    Hester stated, “I recorded my album in 1972 with hope, looking ahead to the future. A fire destroyed those dreams then, but now in 2016, I’m releasing the album, Benny…, for the first time. Miracles can happen… never give up.”

    "No the end is not near" was featured on  HBO season premiere of Girls in Feb 21.

    It was the first project ever produced by Brent Maher, who co-wrote and produced many of The Judds’ biggest hits in the 1980s. Maher and Hester met in Las Vegas in the early 1970s and recorded the project with three members of Elvis Presley’s TCB band—Ron Tutt, James Burton, and Glen Hardin—as well as Jerry Scheff, Larry Muhoberac, and Joe Osborn.

    Maher says, “Having the first album I ever produced coming out 44 years later and being used in an HBO show is a wonderful surprise. It has been a joy to relive the making of the album and have new fans enjoy the project!”

    After 40 years, this album has finally been released, is undoubtedly one of the best releases of this year, the album is full of passion, beautiful songs. The album reminds me of The Carpenters or Love song, this may have been one of the best albums of the year '72, unfortunately was not published.

    This is one of those albums that you can listen to more than once, songs like "Give Your Love Forever",  "Not The End Is Not Near", "The Bridge" or "Love Never Dies" will become favorite subjects all who like the music of early 70s.
