Hosanna gospel discography (c. mid. 60’s – early 70’s)


Hosanna gospel

  • Hosanna Records (Hosanna, the Hosanna Records) was located in Dallas, TX, although releases #2001 and 2003 show a Forth Worth address. The label was run by Rev. Emmett J. Lee of the Eminent Twilight Singers of Dallas, TX. He also ran the Rapturea label in the 1970’s. Today Rev. Lee pastors at the Rapturea Better Way Ministry in Dallas, TX.
  • Hosanna remains sort of a mystery label; little is known about it and most information came from eBay ads.
  • It seems likely that the 7000, 8000 and 9000 series came first and were released mostly in the 1960’s. The 1000, 1500 and 2000 series followed in the late 1960’s and 1970’s. The 9000 and 1000 series may have run concurrently for some time.
  • All years given for the 45rpm releases are estimates, the only year that seems reliable is 1971 for the Relatives record (#1528); this year is given on the Relatives compilation LP on Heavy Light Records (2009). Also, LP 1522 was likely released in 1972 (this year is etched in the dead wax).
  • Gene West (#8018) is Gean West who organized the Relatives in 1970 with his brother Tommy. The Southern-Aires (with Gean West) recorded as the Southernaires for Don Robey and two 45’s were released on the Song Bird label in around 1963-64 (#1007 and 1021).
  • The Hosanna LP’s (three are known to exist) didn’t have a separate numbering system, they were released in the 1500 series.
  • The missing numbers refer to unknown releases. Some numbers may have been unused.
