Choice gospel discography (c. 1960-70)

 

Choice gospel

  • Read a short label introduction here.
  • All missing numbers in the listing are secular, except for #52, which is an unknown release.
  • Brothers McGhee and Terry (Choice 7) are Brownie McGhee and Sonny Terry who mainly recorded blues (also on Choice).
  • Choice 53 by the Gospel Clefs features cover versions of songs originally written and recorded by the Beatles and Simon & Garfunkel in 1969-70. So, Choice 53 must be from 1970 or later, which is odd as it makes a gap of 7 (or more) years with the previous issues.
  • Choice LP 101 may have been released with number 501 as well.
  • Choice LP 506 and 510 (both by the Rasberry Singers) have been reissued on Savoy (LP’s 14080 and 14087 resp.).
  • This page lists all known Choice gospel 45’s and LP’s, plus one EP.
