This blog features the many gospel albums I find. 90% of the records featured here were created by local Cincinnati, Ohio area artists (on Jewel, Rite and Queen City record labels among others). Here you will find the Good, Bad & Ugly but never The Lackluster! If there are copyright issues or a problem with any post, just contact me and I will make corrections. I'm here to have fun and hope you will share in my process of discovery!

From the back cover: William Harold Cochran was born in Morgan County, Kentucky, in 1919. As a boy and young man, Harold was raised in a Christian home. Harold wrote his first song in 1936 – "The Pearly White Stone."
Joe Maphis was known as The King Of The Strings. He specialized in dazzling guitar virtuosity. He influenced Merle Travis, Jimmy Bryant and Chet Atkins. The fantastic guitar Maphis is holding on the jacket was specially built for him by Semie Moseley of Mosrite Guitar.
