The Patrick Family Album

Do You Want To Shout (Gail Stacy)
A Touch Of Heaven (Gail, Loretta & Brenda)
After All (Brenda Hale)
God Is Real (Sister Pansy)
The Patrick Family Album
Engineered and Produced by Rusty York
Jewel Records - Cincinnati, Ohio
LP 113

Terrific Cincinnati area "southern" gospel example featuring fine session work by local musicians, at least several, whose names I recognized from other Jewel recordings I've collected. Rusty York (Owner/operator of Jewel) listed himself as "producer" for this project. He even wrote the jacket notes. York, a musician himself, appears to have been a "one-man-show" "producing" and co-ordinating the entire sessions, engineering and doing post production work that may have included jacket design.

Ray Wilson - Steel Guitar

Russ Mays - Drums
Judy Hensley - Piano

The Heavens Harmony Singers
Alpha Records LP-429

Homecoming Day - The Gospel Singing Burton Family

I Saw The Light
Wait A Little Longer Please Jesus
Homecoming Day
The Gospel Singing Burton Family
Crusade Enterprises - Flora, Illinois
LP 152

The Burton Family (Cincinnati, Ohio) lists their mailing address (hometown) as Fairfield, Ohio. This album was manufactured by Crusade Enterprises located in Flora, Illinois rather then by one of the numerous local labels (Jewel, Rite Records or QCA (Queen City Album). The cover treatment is different than most local production in that the "art" is a lushly pre-printed affair The art is a sheet of stock glued to a blank jacket with one-color gold ink over printed (title on the jacket).

If I remember correctly, I think, at least a few of the Burtons (Grady Burton, Sr., Grady Burton, Jr., Betty Burton and Danny Burton) did a lot of session work on locally produced gospel albums.

This is a very good effort that captures the Cincinnati, Ohio area "southern country gospel" sound, which I've noticed is unique compared to that heard on records that I've collected that were produced in other parts of the country.

I Saw The Light
Nearer To Thee
I'll Praise His Name
Farther Along
Wait A Little Longer Please Jesus
Homecoming
I Wouldn't Take Nothin' For My Journey Now
Lord I Need You Again Today
The Answer's On The Way

Wonderful Is Jesus - Alice Trent

Keep Walking

Wonderful Is Jesus
Alice Trent
Light Of Life - Hamilton, Ohio
Queen City Album - Cincinnati, Ohio
80424

From the back cover: We want to express our appreciation, along with Brother and Sister Trent, to Jeanette Barrett, Pianist and to Jack Cox, Organist. They are both members of the West Side Pentecostal Church, 1940 Millville Ave., Hamilton, Ohio. The Rev. Robinson is the Pastor.

Sister Elsie Sparks, playing the lead guitar, and Brother Will Sparks, playing the rhythm guitar, have been close friends of the Trents for many years.

Brother and Sister Trent are members of the Maryland Ave. Pentecostal Church, 1710 Maryland Ave., Covington, Ky. Rev. Chester Schell is Pastor.

This album "Wonderful Is Jesus" is not just another album, it is the true feeling of Sister Alice, Jesus has truly been wonderful to her.

A few years ago the doctors told Brother Trent that Sister Trent would not be able to sing any more, they had found Cancer in her throat.

Brother Trent began to pray, he needed Sister Trent, she was a part of his ministry. While praying alone in the church one day The Lord sent a messenger to him and told him that Sister Trent would live and sing again; from that day Sister Trent recovered, and in a few weeks she was completely healed and singing for Jesus again.
