Gospel Corner discography (c. 1964-73)


Gospel Corner

  • Gospel Corner was one of Brother Henderson’s labels, located in Los Angeles, CA. Henderson (a.o.) started the Proverb label in February 1959 and Gospel Corner followed in 1964. Throughout the 1960’s both labels were located at the same address (5328 S. Central Avenue). Probably in 1971, Kent Gospel Records took over distribution, then became the main company and the Gospel Corner and Proverb names were dropped. Brother Henderson remained active with Kent Gospel Records until his demise in 1973. See the Proverb label page for more information.
  • Some Gospel Corner 45’s were issued twice, which is a bit confusing. There were two label designs in use, which you can see here.
  • Starting with #107, the labels mention “Subsidiary of Proverb Records”. The 45’s with the second label lay-out did not mention Proverb and were distributed by Kent Gospel Records, like most of the LP issues.
  • Gospel Corner 1000 (Los Angeles Travelers b/w Gospel Five) was also released on Proverb 1019.
  • Gospel Corner 1001 (Fantabulous Little Joe) is mentioned on the back cover of Proverb LP 5000; no song titles are given and #1001 is otherwise an unknown release.
  • In other discographies Gospel Corner 108 by Brother Henderson is listed as number 103. It’s my belief that 108 is the correct number. It has been printed kinda vaguely on the labels of the copy I own (and also on the one I owned before) and if that’s the case with all copies a mistake can easily be made. But #108 is in the dead wax and if it would be #103, the labels should have been black with silver lettering and shouldn’t mention “Subsidiary of Proverb Records”. #103 was formerly unknown but I found a copy recently (Rev. Clinton Moore).
  • Gospel Corner 103 mentions the LP “The Brighter Day”; this is an otherwise unknown album. It’s listed below in the LP discography but maybe this LP was actually released on Proverb, as Rev. Clinton Moore has two other LP releases on Proverb (also mentioned on 45’s and otherwise unknown).
  • Gospel Corner 116 seems to have been released twice, both versions are by Prince Dixon and the  b-sides appear to be different.
  • Gospel Corner 122 and 123 feature the same group (“Sweet Singing” Cavaliers) and the same songs (though the a-side and b-side are flipped).
  • Gospel Corner LP 500 (Prince Dixon) has been released with two different titles. First it was released as “Another Child Of God” (no mention of Kent Gospel Records), then as “Something Is Wrong”. Apart from the album titles, the covers and track listings are also slightly different.
  • Although mentioned on Gospel Corner 147 (Inspirational Souls), it’s doubtful if the LP “Won’t Have To Cry Nomore” exists. I assume that the single should have been referring to LP 507 (“The Letter”), which features this song.
