Posted on Wednesday February 15, 2017We start off our new releases by renumbering a couple of older releases, because a bunch of CDs were sent out with conflicting numbers on them.
- RIV 646 - Honky Tonk Song (changed from RIV 647)

We have a few re-releases from the classic Red Boot library, plus three new patters and a singing call that used to be a patter:

Posted on Wednesday January 18, 2017For our February releases, we have three new patters, three singing calls from the classic Red Boot library, and a new vocal (with different lyrics) for one of our previous releases.
First, the new vocal. Bob Farnell has taken RIV 669 - London Girls across the Irish Sea in time for St. Patrick's Day and turned it into a song about Irish Girls. If you buy the song, you get both vocals (and both sets of lyrics). As always, if you've already purchased RIV 669, you can get the new vocal for free by contacting Bob Elling.
The other releases for the month:
- RIV 717 - Rafting (Patter)
- RIV 718 - Liverpool (Patter)
- RIV 719 - Bessie Phipps (Patter)
- RIV 720 - Could I Have This Dance (formerly RBS 1258, vocal by ESP's Elmer Sheffield)
- RIV 721 - Honky Tonk Saturday Night (formerly RBS 1261, vocal by ESP's Elmer Sheffield)
- RIV 722 - Bobby Sue (formerly RB 273, new vocal by Aaron Wells)
Don't forget to check out the 30 new titles in our 2017 Gold Package! And, as always, be sure to visit our friends at ESP and Silver Sounds! Jack O'Leary at Silver Sounds has a new singing call out this month, called "Ain't No Sunshine" (SSR 335).
Posted on Thursday December 15, 2016We have four new patters and two new singing calls to bring out this month:
- RIV 665 - Do
- RIV 666 - Irish Spring
- RIV 667 - Ticking Clock
- RIV 668 - Steel Guitar and Friends
- RIV 669 - London Girls (vocal by Bob Farnell)
- RIV 716 - Summer Roads (vocal by Silver Sounds' Jack O'Leary)
All available for immediate purchase and download from the Riverboat website! You can also get gift certificates at the website!
Last month, I forgot to mention that Nils Trottmann of New-Beat had recorded a German vocal for "You Raise Me Up" (RIV 524). As always, if you've already purchased the song and would like to receive the new vocal, please contact Bob Elling directly -- new vocals are always free to those who've previously bought it. And, keep your eye out -- Nils is working on a German vocal for "White Christmas" (RIV 287).
Also, Ron Schneider is recovered and has finished the vocal for "Cincinnati Ohio" (RIV 654) released last month. It'll be sent to those who've already purchased the song. This is a good tie-in for the upcoming National Square Dance Convention in Cincinnati. (Will we see you there?)
Don't forget, New Year's Eve is coming up. We released "Auld Lang Syne" (RIV 621) earlier this year, with a bagpipe solo in the middle break -- if you haven't got your copy yet, get it before the big night!
