Ark gospel discograpy (1963-70)


Ark gospel

  • The Ark label operated from New York City and was connected to HOB (Scepter). Most sides seem to have been produced by John Bowden (HOB, Revelation, etc.).
  • Ark 148 has been released as by Charlie Baker and the Six Gospel Stars, and as by Charlie Baker and the Five Singing Stars (!). Check the scans.
  • Ark 164 by the Harris Family may have a different catalog number.
  • Ark 165 (Dynamic Specials) has number 166 on the reverse side. This appears to be a mistake. See scans.
  • It is unknown if the unnumbered release (by the Golden Travelers) is on the same Ark label.
  • This page lists all known Ark gospel 45’s and LP releases. No information on the missing numbers.
