Jimmie Vestal on EvO:R
In the late 90's when the Internet was new and the CD was the dominating
force in music I meet a guy still stuck in the 50's-60's era. His name was Jimmie Vestal. He was so stuck in time that he was
still recording to 45 RPM records! Jimmie Vestal was such a throw-back to the past that I felt a need to
invite him to join the EvO:R family. Since joining EvO:R- Jimmie has advanced to the digital world but his roots and love for the 50's era
still remain in his heart and music....
Charlie Harrelson- Founder of EvO:R
Jimmie Vestal is a Pinellas Park, Florida Free Agent (independent) song
writer and musician.
"Jimmie Vestal is one the most promotionally minded artists on the planet"...EvO:R
He is the hardest working rocker around that records original music written
in the style of the 50's and 60s era rock and roll music and has already
written over 165 copyrighted songs.
One of his songs, THAT'S ALL RIGHT, is up-tempo blues-rock that is based on
his grandmother's poem. It was pressed on a 7" 45 RPM vinyl record. The flip
side, MY PRECIOUS LOVE, is a slow, romantic ballad.
It is a song with feeling, and it is dedicated to someone who had a hit song
with the word "Feeling" in the title.
To back that statement up I'll mention just a few of the many promotional ideas Jimmie
has worked on over the years.
Jimmie Vestal's 10 most important songs
7" 45 RPM vinyl record- when the world was almost totally digital Jimmie recorded songs to
vinyl and sent promotional copies to radio stations that still played the format. As more and more radio
stations turned to digital music Jimmie's opportunities seemed numbered but what he gained was a foot in
the door at stations that played vinyl.
Drive-in Movie Promo- the drive-in movie theater was a staple until the late 70's when multi-plex theatres started to
dominate the movie business. While their numbers dwindled to a mear handful of locations in the country Jimmie decided to once again
capture a market where few still tread. He created a Drive-In Romance song that was customized for each drive-in theatre and sold
a renewable license to the theatre owners for one year and that license allowed the drive-in theater to
use the song as a promo give away or to create a Drive-in Romance bargain deal at the snack shop which would consist of popcorn, coke and a
CD with the licensed song on it. How creative is that?
Bold Head Diva- The caricature of the character in his song appeared
on post cards, soda pop, wooden nickels, and on bottles of Gourmet Steak Sauce. This is no ordinary ho-hum promotion.
Restaurants and night clubs, that are contacted to sell the song on CD to their customers, also have the opportunity to
introduce the Diva's special sauce to their hungry guests.
Jimmie takes us on a tour of the 10 songs that helped mold his song writting style. We have also posted some of Jimmie's audio
and video gems. This is a must see section for Jimmie Vestal fans around the world.
Jimmie Vestal Reviews
Go here to see the list.
Rock'n'roll is not dead! Jimmie R. Vestal is here with a rollicking
two-chorder that harks back to the classic 50's sizzling and fizzing
with obvious zest for tracks like "Rocket 88" that kicked it all off.
It comes on a variety of coloured vinyl gramophone 7" and
almost entirely of the chorus with a great reverb break and Mr. Magoo
I let my three teenagers, Kelsey 17, Stephanie 15 & Clayton 13, along with a
few of their friends listen to them too. They loved the song "Who Dat?"! They were all
dancing in my kitchen! It was hilarious!!
I think you've managed to bring back something that's been missing in music for the last
twenty to thirty years ...... FUN! I felt like I was at a SOCK HOP when the kids were dancing!!

- Volume 1
Remember when all radio stations had turntables to spin current songs that were released as
45 RPM vinyl records? Perhaps you have only read and heard about a vinyl record - - - or you
may be a vinyl collector yourself. You might even own a Juke Box. You may have visited a "soda shop"
and saw a Juke Box (a coin operated phonograph record player). You may have sat in your car and
watched a "Drive-In Theatre" movie outdoors. This CD comes with a genuine 7" 45 RPM vinyl pressing
of two of the songs that are also on the CD.
