Elko gospel discography (c. 1951-54)


Elko gospel

  • For a short label introduction, click here.
  • George Curry also had a secular release on Elko (#827).
  • It seems likely that records #12 and #13 in the listing are both by the Corinthian Gospel Singers; however, on Elko 932 there’s no artist name given and there seem to be differences between the recordings.
  • Elko 918, though credited to Sister Christine, is actually by Clara Ward/Clara Ward and the Ward Sisters. The same recordings can be found on BBS 1002, which was released in c. 1952.
  • The Sensational Clouds of Joy continued to record as the Mighty Clouds of Joy (most famous for their Peacock recordings).
