"The Kingston Springs Suite" album cover

On our minds this week is the story of a long-lost country music album that's just been released 40 years after it was recorded.  Country musicians Vince Matthews and Jim Casey recorded "The Kingston Springs Suite" back in the early '70s.  It was backed by some big names. At the time, Matthews and Casey were rising stars in Nashville. But after their record deal tanked, Matthews' career faded away.  He died in 2003 but Jim Casey is still around to talk about the album.

After more than 20 years at the helm, Jim Fleming announced that he will retire at the end of January as host of To the Best of Our Knowledge. Beginning in February, the show will launch the most significant makeover of the program in its 23-year history. Long-time interviewer and producer Anne Strainchamps will become the new host.
