Most scans came from Per Notini and Patrick Staten.

Thanks to information on matrix numbers that I found on the internet (see www.45rpmrecords.com), I could correct the years given in the Finch and Fine Art discographies.


– New CD-r: Best From The West

Now available on CD-r and as a download is the compilation album “The Best From The West” on Proverb Records. This rare album features known and lesser known artists who have recorded for Brother Henderson’s Proverb label. The cover says “True High Fidelity” which is a bit exaggerated, however a truly beautiful copy was the source for this recording, so you won’t easily find it any better, and there sure is a lot of obscure material to enjoy.

You can read this post for more information and click here (or on the image below) for the album details. If you’d like to order a CD-r or a download, be sure to drop me a line through the contact page.



– Skylarks

The Skylarks, or the Famous Skylarks, recorded for Nashboro from 1950 (this year is given on the back cover of their only LP release, LP 7058) until 1967. Apart from the LP, which marked the end of the group’s recording career, 24 singles were issued. Yesterday and today I’ve added scans of all the Skylarks records in my possession – sixteen 45’s/78’s plus the LP release.


– New CD-r: Six Voices of Zion

After recording the previous album (Gospel Chords on Chalice) I was in the mood to do another one: the album “Thank You Jesus” by the Six Voices of Zion of Columbia, SC. This rather obscure LP, released on Gusman 1001 in c. 1972-73, featured ‘new’ recordings on the A-side and older recordings on the B-side (1966-69). This was the group’s first album, with follow-up releases on Pitch (1976) and Co-Town (1980’s).

Three songs on this album were released on the 3CD release “The Pitch/Gusman Record Story” on Big Legal Mess (#BLM 0224; 2009). This CD release is still available from their website.

The album is available on CD-r and as a download. Send me a message if you’d like to make an order.
