The Choraleers Quartet – “On The Way Home”

The Choraleers Quartet – “On The Way Home”So, tonight we have The Choraleers Quartet of North Carolina and their first of two 1975 albums on the Truth record label. Another group of finely dressed gentlemen. They open the album with the song “On the Way Home” and we got some pedal steel guitar, and that real country gospel sound that you know I love,...

The Spencers – “It’ll Be Worth It After All”

The Spencers – “It’ll Be Worth It After All”So, this is a new one for me, I don’t think in my fifteen years of collecting that I’ve ever seen a Gospel LP from the 1990’s aside from Terri Gibbs’ contribution. The Spencer Family comes from Ohio, and they released this album in 1990 on the Peaceful Stream Music label. The album, once again,... Read More »

The Hamilton Brothers – “Give The World A Smile”

The Hamilton Brothers – “Give The World A Smile”First of all, what is not to like about this cover? Six happy guys, dressed sharp outside of a TV studio. Secondly, the back cover says that these gentlemen have done telethons for handicapped children. Thirdly, a guy on Discogs said his great grandfather is one of the guys on the cover, how cool is...

The Davis Family – “One More Day…”

The Davis Family – “One More Day…”So, yesterday I had written about the Davis’ other album “Get Excited” – I believe this one on the Mastertone label, recorded by Mark Five Studios and released in 1972 precedes the latter album. Looking over the track list on this one, I am pretty excited because there are some great ones on here. So,... Read More »

The Davis Family – “Get Excited”

The Davis Family – “Get Excited”You know, I’m excited! Why? Because the Davis Family is excited! Why are they excited? I don’t know! But according to the liner notes Beverly Nelson is excited about this album that was recorded in Nashville’s Monument Recording Studio and produced by Veteran Allen Henson, and released on their own label in the 1970’s. Naturally,... Read More »

Rob Costanza – “Jesus is the Answer”

Rob Costanza – “Jesus is the Answer”You know, when I hear the name Costanza I think of Seinfeld. You know, the show about nothing that takes place in NYC. Well, Rev. Rob Costanza is from NYC as well, and he released this album on the Velvet Recordings label, in 1976 – maybe in January? The album opens with “God Gave The Song” and it’s not... Read More »

Larry Adams – “The Suns Coming Up”

Larry Adams – “The Suns Coming Up”Larry Adams of Gilbertown, AL, was just 28 years old when he recorded this album on the Echo Sound label, his story goes that he was stricken with Polio at age 9, and miraculously overcame his sickness, and part of his recovery was learning how to play the Harmonica. This album serves as his testimony... Read More »

Taunnie – “Boy Shoppin'”

Taunnie – “Boy Shoppin'”So, today we do things a little different, instead of my usual Gospel release I’m doing something not Gospel – we have Taunnie’s 1984 pop release on Thunderbolt Records, “Boy Shoppin’” – and I have to say, with a back cover like that, reading over the liner notes and seeing it’s like a song of...

Roosevelt Miller – “The Talking City”

Roosevelt Miller – “The Talking City”I don’t think I’ve ever come across anyone in my life named Roosevelt, except for the Muppet, Roosevelt Franklin (Aside from Teddy Roosevelt and Franklin Delano Roosevelt) I have come across a few Millers though. Today though, we have Roosevelt Miller of Cleveland, Tn. singing “The Talking City” – his fourth album, recorded in 1975... Read More »

David Miller – “Here They Come”

David Miller – “Here They Come”Here They Come by David Miller of Harrison, Ohio – released in 1977, on the Jordan Records label. Who is they? I don’t know, but I’m about to find out with the title track opening the album. The album does indeed open with the track “Here They Come” – and as you’d expect, David Miller... Read More »

The Shiloh’s – “God Bless Ya Brother”

The Shiloh’s – “God Bless Ya Brother”The jackets. The back cover. They’re from Flora, Illinois (but not on the Crusade label) – so far everything looks promising about the Shiloh’s 1970-something album on the GNC Records label. It opens with “Touring That City” – and it starts off slow and quiet, before the group all joins in together to sing this... Read More »

The NeVilles – “Thanking Him”

The NeVilles – “Thanking Him”Here we have Larry & Janet NeVille of Tulsa, Oklahoma with their 1974 self-released album, “Thanking Him” – which was recorded and manufactured by Rite Record Productions. Can I begin by saying Larry NeVille gives me a Ken Snyder vibe? The title track opens this album, and we get the happy, upbeat piano playing before the... Read More »

Chet Taylor Trio – “The Happy Man”

Chet Taylor Trio – “The Happy Man”Aesthetically, that is a really pleasing cover. But also, it doubles as a spot the differences type of image. I’m back again, and today (tonight) we have the Chet Taylor Trio on American Artists Custom Records, I believe they’re from the Missouri, and that is most likely Chet in the center. It’s also dedicated to... Read More »
