“When you spend a lot of time purchasing whole lots of random Jamaican records, there are always bound to be a few gospel 45s mixed in,” he wrote. “Over the years my pile grew slowly and I was always amazed by how fresh they sounded for religious recordings from the 1960s.”
“Recently I bought the amazing compilation Noah Full of Grace and listened to it non-stop for a few weeks. The excitement of this reminded me of my own stack of gospel 45s, so into the piles I went to dig out some gems.
