• Sharp was a subsidiary label of Savoy, releasing gospel as well as secular material.
  • Sharp 606 (Eddie Williams and the Crusaders) was reissued on Savoy 4340 in the 1970’s.
  • The Harmonizing Five (of Burlington, NC) recorded with Thermon Ruth as the Harmoneers on Savoy 4208.
  • Sharp 609 has probably not been released.
  • Early Savoy catalogues often list the first song (or another) on an album as the album title; the actual LP title was neglected or an album title was given where there was none. I have corrected most of these mistakes but it may lead to some inconsistencies with other information found on the internet and elsewhere.
  • This page lists all known gospel releases (45’s and LP’s) on the Sharp label.
