Finch gospel discography (c. 1963-1970)


Finch gospel

  • Finch (Finch Recording Co.) was a Cincinnati, OH label, owned by John Finch and in operation from 1962/63 to the mid 1970’s. Apart from gospel the label also released blues, doo-wop, soul, country and garage.
  • The Finch label was related to ‘Gospel Records’, a small label that should not be confused with other ‘Gospel’ labels. The Silvertones of Cincinnati had a release on Gospel Records, with the labels referring to Finch Pub. Co.
  • The numbering Finch used really is a mess and thus it’s hard to tell if the listing is anywhere close to complete. The numbers given are the ones as shown on the labels. When it says nn (not numbered), the matrix numbers are shown for better identification.
  • Some 45’s have been reissued (by Finch?), like the first release by the Singing Mastermen (9485/9486). These reissues may also be bootlegs.
  • The Silvertone Singers (Silvertones of Cincinnati) recorded as the Cincinnatians for Brunswick (1953-54). See also the Nashboro and Excello discographies.
  • The years of release for the LP’s are largely unknown. All Finch LP’s that are known to me are listed, but some or most could be from the 1970’s. The years for the 45’s and EP’s come from the pressing plant information on Post-1970 45’s are omitted from the discography.
  • This page lists all known Finch gospel singles, EP’s and LP’s from 1963-1970.
