Editor's note: I've found so many interesting records lately that I wish I had little elves to record and post hourly. But I don't so they trickle in when I have free time. Which isn't much but it's rest-evoking and this aids in that endeavor.

This is the second record that I've stumbled upon from Premier Albums. It's not at all what I expected from the cover art alone. I expected ripping slide guitars with a country twang but this is more of a gospel and hymns album for the most part.

I also found a newspaper advert for this and other records from 1967, which is what I have placed the date as.

Hartford Courant, November 23, 1967 (enlarge)

I had this music as a little tyke, but it was in a different cover.

So naturally I love it, no matter how terrible it is. :)

Eh, you got the better cover.

Unbelievably, I saw your version of this record tonight at the thrift store. Luckily, it had the wrong disc in it or I would have been forced to buy it.
