Stu Stevens died at the age of 79 following an illness.  His music will live on. After a gap of over 30 years, Stu went back into the studio to record four albums, including a CD, "Still Standing," a gospel album and two releases available on digital download, "Forever Young" and "Yesterday When I Was Young."

Over the past few years Hotdisc, Europe's number 1 country music promotional label, has been re-issuing Stu's back catalogue to DJs and media people all over the world, and the demand has been massive as radio stations were given CD copies of some of Stu's best known songs to play.

That demand brought about the release of "The Voice" CD which contains 16 of his best known songs including of course "The Man From Outer Space" and "Hello Pretty Lady." A second volume, "The Voice - Volume 2," came out in March 2017 containing 40 tracks including the entire concert from 1980 at the Apollo Theatre, Oxford, recorded with just him and his two sons, Stuart Jr and Stephen.  It also contains the best of the rest of his back catalogue including some rarities available for the very first time.

A recently rediscovered interview from 31 years ago has now been cleaned up and digitally restored, and is now available to listen to at our Video page above. It offers a fascinating insight into Stu's life back in 1981 when the interview was recorded.

By public demand, in July 2012, a DVD release of Stu's only video, "The Man And His Music", was released. Although the quality of this programme varies throughout the 90 minutes, it is such a rare piece of Stu Stevens history that the decision was made to make it available on DVD for the first time ever.

The Ultimate Collection Boxed Set came out in March 2019 which contained four CDs and featured the albums "The Voice" and "Still Standing" as well, for the first time ever on CD, his legendary concert at Oxford in 1980 and "The Voice Volume 2" which contains the best of the rest of his songs.

We received a review of "The Voice" CD by Jim Marshall from his "Online Country UK" regular news bulletin which we are delighted to reproduce here ...

STU STEVENS - THE VOICE (Xiaohua/Ash Records)

Although the recordings here are mostly over 30 years old they honestly sound fresh enough to have been recorded yesterday. Stu Stevens, who comes from my old stomping ground around Kirkby-in-Ashfield, near Nottingham, is not your typical country singer. Although very popular at country music festivals and clubs in years gone by, he's probably best described as an all-round entertainer with a repertoire designed to appeal to all ages and many musical tastes.

Having been away from the scene for some time he's re-emerged with a brand new album, but can't tell you enough how much I enjoyed listening to the matchless old recordings on this welcome CD. The subtitle on this album is "The Ultimate Collection" and that phrase has never been put to better use.
