– Bounty for sale

Today I added several gospel LP’s on Discogs. Amongst them five Bounty LP’s from the 1970’s. I listed them because I have them for sale. They appeared to be the first Bounty LP’s on Discogs, while there are plenty of 45’s listed.

This website features a Bounty (& related) discography but only the 1960’s are covered. Some of these labels, all run by Thomas and Louise Boddie, had much more to offer and for a good overview, I can recommend the Numero release “Boddie Recording Company: Cleveland, Ohio” (3 CD’s or 5 LP’s). From the Numero website comes the following information.

“From 1958 to 1993, Thomas and Louise Boddie’s industrious Boddie Recording Company issued nearly 300 albums and 45s, recorded 10,000 hours of tape, and remained in operation longer than any other studio, pressing plant, or label group in the history of Cleveland. Long forgotten even by the standards of the chronically overlooked northeastern Ohio music scene, Boddie was a fusion of its owner’s engineering genius and his limited economic means, its DIY recording studio housed in a humble barn, churning night and day to capture the sounds emanating from Cleveland’s east side neighborhoods.” Source: the Numero website (see the links page)

Also located in Cleveland, Ohio was the Bos label; the album “Somebody’s Knocking At Your Door” by the Bernard Upshaw Singers was also added to Discogs.
