DeLuxe gospel discography (1945-54)

 

DeLuxe Gospel

  • DeLuxe was formed in 1944 by brothers Dave and Jules Braun. They recorded everything from gospel, jazz and blues to pop and polka. Blues man Roy Brown was their biggest star.
  • DeLuxe officially became a subsidiary label of King in February 1951. Many of the DeLuxe masters were issued on King singles and albums. After the take over, gospel was released in DeLuxe’s 6000 series (1953-54).
  • In the pre King years it seems that DeLuxe sometimes felt insecure about where to file under gospel records, so at least some of the gospel issues were released both in the 1000 series (pop) and the 3000 series (rhythm & blues).
  • DeLuxe 6001 by the Gospel Twins was also released on Glory 4017. DeLuxe 6005 by the Spiritual Harmonizers was also released on Glory 4004. All of Rev. A. Johnson’s releases were also issued on the Glory label, except for #6010. See the Glory label discography.
  • All of Prof. James Earle Hines’ releases were also issued on Sacred and all of them except #3182 were also issued on Gotham. #3182 was also released on Rex and Esquire. The DeLuxe issues all seem to have been released as by (Prof.) James E. Hines and his Good Will Singers.
  • The Spiritual Consolers (#6026) are better known as the Consolers; see the Nashboro discography. They recorded as the Miami Soul Stirrers for Glory.
  • The Four Blues is the same group as the Golden Echo Quartet; #1005 was released both as by the Four Blues and as by the Golden Echo Quartet.
  • The Memphis Gospel Singers (#3221) are better known as the Spirit of Memphis; see the King and Peacock discographies.
  • The Gospel Tones and the Veteran Singers also recorded for DeLuxe, but these sides were not issued. There are also several unissued sides by the Spiritual Consolers.
  • This page lists all known DeLuxe gospel 78’s. Some of the later issues may also exist in the 45rpm format.
