Fine gospel discography (1957-1976)

 

Fine gospel

  • Fine was a label from Rochester, NY, founded by Vince Jan, who also was the label’s proprietor.
  • Related labels which had gospel releases include Tone, In, F.C.D. and Queen City.
  • The remainders of the studio, which had been active from 1947 to 1977 and later suffered both fire and flood damage, were purchased by Mark Taylor from Australia. Much of the label’s history can be found on his website; it has been very helpful in creating this page.
  • Between 1957 and 1976 some 17 gospel 45’s were issued on Fine and even though most were issued in the 1970’s, all are listed below.
  • Joe Carter (Fine 5731) is most likely Joe L. Carter (or Joe L.) who had a secular career as well (his 1971 release “Please Mr. Foreman” on Hi may be the most noteworthy). In the later 1970’s he recorded more gospel for Champ (as Joe L. Carter and the Pilgrim Gospel Singers) and Zesty (as Joe Carter and the Pilgrim Gospel Singers).
  • This page lists all known Fine gospel singles.
