– Sybil Johnson Singers

Added today are scans and sound files for Ram 77530 by the Sybil Johnson Singers (c. 1957). I received these files from Alton and Margaret Warwick, through Dominique Anglares. The 78 was first featured on my recordconnexion website where the audio was available as download of the month (Feb. 2014).

This 78rpm record can be considered a real rarity and it’s probably the only 78rpm record ever released by Ram Records. Little to nothing is known about the Sybil Johnson Singers, except that they were a Shreveport group and Sybil Johnson seems to have played piano on Linda Brannon’s “I Shall Not Be Moved” (unreleased). Linda Brennon was a white female pop, country and rockabilly singer, who recorded for Ram, Philips and Epic.

Also added today are scans for Queen 4138, 4139, 4154, 4156, 4163 ans 4173 (all kindly sent to me by Per Notini).

 

– Gospel Revelators & more

Updates:

  • I’ve added images and details for Gospel Corner LP 515 by the Mighty Gospel Revelators of San Diego, California.
  • Scans have been added to the Jas discography (1017, 528) (thanks to Per Notini).
  • A previously unknown LP has been added to the Gospel Recording Co. discography (LP 1385). It appears this sermon LP was issued in a blank, gold-colored cover (thanks to Angela Church).

 

– Music files added

It appeared to be more simple than I thought, so I started adding music files to the website. There’s one on the home page (Norfleet Brothers) and I’ve added several to the discographies. The music is available from the pages with label scans and in the main listing the presence of a music file is indicated by a note (). Click to see the scans and then scroll down for the audio player.

The first files have been added (see Arctic, Avant, Bandera, Bounty, Elko, Gotham, Hosanna), with more to follow soon.

– Golgotha

Today I’ve added a Golgotha discography. It’s quite a mysterious label and I guess around half of the label’s releases are currently unknown. I can only hope that more information will become available soon. Let me know if you can help: drop me line through the Contact page.

I need to add scans which I will do soon, though I haven’t many scans to show…

 

– King LP 1132

King LP 1132 is a compilation of tracks by the Swan Silvertones (Swan’s Silvertone Singers), previously released on King and Queen 78rpm records, except for “All Alone” which was first released on Audio Lab EP 11. All the other tracks on this LP were reissued on Audio Lab EP’s. It seems like the compiler had to choose his favorites from the Audio Lab EP’s, of which there were quite a few.

Today I’ve added info and images for this album, which can be seen here. I have also added scans to the Apollo (#215) and Gotham (#742) discographies and I started working on the King Solomon discography. Several scans were added, with more to come soon.
