Rex Smith: An Original Idol

September 13, 2007

rexsmithteenbeat.jpgRex Smith is getting out there making the old seem new again. It seems he’s taking a break from real estate and has joined the Original Idols Tour. His first show was in Las Vegas during Labor Day weekend and there are events popping up around the country. He’ll be at the Wildhorse Saloon in Nashville in October and then in Palm Springs, California in December. Hopefully, they’ll add more shows. Maybe he’ll get hooked and perform steadily. He has such a great voice. I’d like to see it back. This may be the trigger for something new. (but no reality shows!)

Another AFM favorite, Tony DeFranco will perform at the Original Idols events, too. Others are, Danny Bonaduce (Danny Partridge), Barry Williams (Greg Brady),  the Cowsills (Walk Away Renee), The Bay City Rollers (S-A-T-U-R… ok), and Leif Garrett. I have a feeling that Rex Smith will be the highlight of that group.

So, let’s get one of those concerts in or near New York.

Simply… Rex Smith

Rex Smith’s songs have been off the shelves for quite some time now. My cassette of Sooner or Later is long worn out. I had to have You Take My Breath Away on the radio station and managed to find the single for sale by download and there it is on the station. He really does have a great voice and I’m surprised albums aren’t still coming. He created an album for sale on his website . Tracks included: Simply Jessie, Could It Be Magic, Goodbye To You, Foolish Heart, You Take My Breath Away, Forever, What About The Dream, Let’s Make A Memory, Lonely Days, and Without A Word.
