Stocks in this article: VLCO

CLEARWATER, Fla., July 11, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- ValCom, Inc. (VLCO.PK) announced today that it has started production on the first of many albums that will be distributed commercially through multiple sources including Universal Music Distribution.

The Platters Golden Anniversary album will feature digitally re-mastered cuts of classic Platters songs including Only You, Smoke Gets in Your Eyes, and The Great Pretender. The Album will also feature new, original recordings with Platter's lead singer Sonny Turner and two surprise Top 40 recording artists.

The project will be produced by recording industry veterans Joel Wertman, Vince Vellardita, and Tim Harrington.  Wertman is credited with discovering multiple music artists including No Doubt, The Goo Goo Dolls, and Bush. Vellardita has over 30 years of experience in the entertainment industry where he has produced and promoted over 200 live events, and Harrington brings years of business and marketing experience as an entrepreneur and venture capitalist.

"We've assembled an all-star team of business and creative talent to bring this first Platters album to market," stated Vince Vellardita, President and CEO of ValCom. "We'll be reaching multiple generations of consumers with this project."  

The Platters last anniversary album sold over 70 million copies, and the group continues to command a worldwide following. The Platters are the number 1 karaoke music group in Asia.

The Platters Golden Anniversary is the first of many projects that tap into the vast content in ValCom's audio and video library. ValCom has also recently signed distribution agreements with television networks for some of the library's video content.

The second of the releases will be Ike & Tina Turner: The Lost Tapes that will feature rare and long-lost studio recordings of one of the most influential song-writing teams in music history.

Producer Tim Harrington commented, "We first heard the Ike and Tina master tapes in an Atlanta recording studio a few months ago.  I was amazed at the quality of the recordings.  When I heard what Tina's voice sounded like at the beginning of her career, I realized that she is the Beyonce Knowles of her generation."
