• There were several Revival labels, this is the one from Ecorse MI, best known for the recordings by Shirley Ann Lee. The label was run by Felton Williams.
  • Felton Williams ran four labels: Revival, Cass, Compose and Solid Rock. All gospel appeared on the Revival label. Although the labels were different, the issue numbers largely appeared to be continuing. Issues 633/634, 641/642, 126 and 129 came out on Compose, issue 643/644 on Solid Rock.
  • After a long hiathus (1973-1981), Williams tried to revive the label with a release by the Walker Brothers (Revival 138). The effort wasn’t very succesful. The last known release was Revival 139 (Brown Family Singers). Both #138 and #139 are excluded from the discography.
  • The Coleman Family (Revival 127) is a white group.
  • Williams’ Revival label has nothing to do with Revival 632 and 633 (Anchored Souls of Atlanta and Christian Harmonizers of South Carolina), although some discographies suggest a connection. Revival 632 and 633 have been released on the New York Revival label (a Cee-Jay subsidiary), in c. 1960.
  • Numero LP/CD 026 (“Local Customs, Downriver Revival”) contains 24 released and unreleased performances on the various labels run by Felton Williams, plus a DVD with almost 200 sound recordings pulled from Williams’ vaults. Most of it is gospel and listed in the tapes vault.
  • This page lists all known gospel 45’s on the Ecorse Revival label, from 1967 to 1972. Missing numbers are unknown releases; some may be unused/unreleased.
