Con Hunley Digs Through His Own Archives for New Album 'Lost and Found: The MCA/Capitol Years'

Local ’80s country-soul heartthrob Con Hunley has revisited some of his oldest material for his new album, which was released earlier this month on Knoxville-based indie country label IMMI Records.

After his successful run at Warner Bros. in the late ’70s and early ’80s, Hunley recorded several tracks for the MCA and Capitol labels. A few of the songs were released as singles, but Hunley never finished a full album for either label. For the new collection Lost and Found: The MCA/Capitol Years, Hunley has re-recorded 14 of those songs with his long-time producer Norro Wilson.

After his aborted MCA and Capitol albums, Hunley quit the recording business for nearly two decades, until the 2003 album Sweet Memories and 2006’s Shoot From the Heart.
