THE MOM AND DADS PLAY YOUR FAVORITE HYMNS
The Mom & Dads
GNP CRESCENDO RECORDS GNPS 2082 1974 STEREO
From time to time we have concluded an Album with a favorite hymn and the response from our listeners has been very gratifying. Therefore due to the many requests that we have received for a complete album of hymns we have recorded these twelve numbers. Four of them are taken from our previous albums, the other eight we have not recorded before. We hope you like them.
Sincerely The Mom and Dads

Editor's note: Oh, Mom & Dads...you didn't have to. No, really...you...didn't...have...to. But seeing as you did we'll groove to your jazzy ragtime ensemble even if not in the presence, image and name of The Lord. I was surprised that there were no vocals but sometimes the music -- just as the cheese did -- stands alone.
I came across this record on a few blogs and managed to track down some audio from WFMU's site. I would love to hear more from this honky-tonkin' caterwaulin' queen. Listen to the tracks below and I think you will too!
