Clarence Yarbrough was born in Brownfield, Texas, and raised in Garrison,
Texas, by his mother Annie Mae Yarbrough who adopted him when he was two. When speaking of his love and gratitude for
her, he explains, “I was conceived in another woman’s womb, but was born in my mother’s heart.”
At the age
of five, Clarence was taught to play guitar by his oldest brother, Bobby. He devoted himself to the study of music and
wrote his first song at the age of twelve. His commitment to musical creativeness and composition allowed him to develop as
a singer, songwriter, and musician.
Clarence moved to Nacogdoches, Texas in 1971 and wrote Reminisce, three years later.
Reminisce was recorded and released in 1976, and has since become one of his most requested songs by fans and DJ’s alike.
Vintage record collectors throughout the United States and the United Kingdom have sought to obtain his records.
In 1980, Clarence
gave up touring to return to his gospel music roots. He composed, produced, and performed numerous gospel CD’s, to include
“Barely Holding On,” “I’ve Got Good News,” “Please Don’t Go,” and a current
project titled, “So Many Times.” Clarence credits his musical inspirations to life experiences and his deep
love for God.
The release of this digitally mastered Reminisce Collector’s Edition CD is in response to the numerous inquiries
and requests for select songs from the 1970’s. The Reminisce Collector’s Edition CD release date is March 23,
2012, and will be available for a limited time only. The CD contains the title song, “Reminisce,” “That's

This CD takes you back in time to when music made you feel warm and fuzzy all over, from
the inside out.
