FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
ROCK LEGEND WHITLOCK SIGNS WITH RECORDS ON THE WALL
WELL KNOWN ROYALTY TRACKING COMPANY TO COLLECT UNPAID ROYALTIES
LOS ANGELES—March 15, 2005-- Rock legend Bobby Whitlock has signed an exclusive royalty tracking contract with Records On The Wall, LLC., in an effort to collect previously unpaid royalties, covering some of rock's most prestigious compositions and recordings.
Considered one of rock's living legends, Bobby Whitlock is well-known for his robust vocals, his imaginative B-3 keyboard playing and for writing some of rock ‘n roll’s greatest songs. Records On The Wall will be working with Whitlock in reference to his participation in such classics as “Layla", "Bell Bottom Blues," "Tell The Truth," "Why Does Love Have To Be So Sad," “Thorn Tree in a Garden," "Anyday," and "I Looked Away,” among others.
In 2003 the latest of Whitlock’s five solo albums, Bobby Whitlock & Kim Carmel And Other Assorted Love Songs, was released. Raised in Arkansas and Tennessee, by the time he was a teenager he was playing on many of the sessions at the legendary Stax Studios. With a soulful voice soaked in R&B, gospel and blues and accomplished keyboard skills, it was only a matter of time before the limelight found him. At 19 Whitlock joined Eric Clapton to form Derek and the Domino's. The members of the group were an integral part of George Harrison's album All Things Must Pass and Whitlock penned three of the songs included on the project. All of this put him on the list of rock's elite. Whitlock’s songs have been recorded by artists such as Ray Charles, Albert King, George Jones, Sheryl Crow, Glen Frey, Tom Jones, Cher, Mike Nesmith, The Charlie Daniels Band and The Allman Brothers. Like Lennon/McCartney and Jagger/Richards, Clapton and Whitlock are synonymous with the greats of Rock-n-Roll.
Records On The Wall has been in business for over ten years and has worked with numerous clients to secure mechanical and synchronization licenses, and most importantly, collect royalties due. Licenses have been secured and royalties have been collected covering recordings by such artists as Eric Clapton, Led Zeppelin, Dr. John, Red Hot Chili Peppers, The Black Crowes, Bonnie Raitt, The Allman Brothers, Frank Sinatra, The Doors, Jimi Hendrix and The Blues Brothers.
