Ronnie Butler 'Greatest Hits' digital CD release slated for July 1, 2013

Ronnie Butler - Greatest Hits
Label: Ronnie Records | Release Date: July 1, 2013

Music pioneer and icon Ronnie Butler, has penned, performed, and recorded many widely
popular songs that have come to define indigenous Bahamian music.
As a part of our 40th Independence celebrations, the Greatest Hits CD will be
released on July 1, 2013. The digital album will be available for purchase on iTunes,
Amazon, CDBaby, and Google Music Store for $9.99.

For the first time in over 50 years, fans living abroad will be able to purchase a complete
Ronnie Butler album online. The digital release features 13 of the legend's greatest hits
including "Burma Road", "Age Ain't Nuttin But a Number", and "Bahama Rock" plus two
bonus tracks - the popular "Look What You Do" and an early recording of traditional
calypso tune “Big Bamboo”.

Ronnie's greatest work, spanning over 15 records, will finally be available on one must-
have album. For 10 years, starting in 1973, he played  Ronnie's Rebel Room at Anchorage
Hotel. Many of the same hit songs featured on the digital album were performed in front of
audiences from around the world. Some have also been featured in films including Tyler
Perry’s Why Did I Get Married Too. Distribution for Ronnie's music, known for its goombay,
calypso, latin, soul and junkanoo fusion, has evolved alongside music technology, making
the shift from physical CD units to electronic albums.

This special collection, a celebration of music evolution and appreciation, is a timely gift to
the Bahamian people at the time of our 40th Independence celebration. Greatest Hits is
the ultimate collector's item, Bahamian music album, and Independence soundtrack. The
digital album booklet can be downloaded at any time from
