Released on the Tabernacle Records label and very difficult to find nowadays, these are the ten Sacred/Gospel albums that were recorded at Brentford Road during the late 1960s. The music is most definitely lo-fi and the sleeves are sometimes extremely basic, but I find them captivating and quite beautiful in their own way. You won't find them coming up for sale very often, and it is unlikely that they will ever be repressed or reissued.

Five of the titles were pressed and released in the UK on the distinctive purple and white Tabernacle Records label. All were subsequently repressed and released in Jamaica on a variety of different coloured labels.

These are the UK pressings (with consecutive catalogue numbers):

OVER IN GLORYLAND - Otis Wright (1967) TLP 1001

IT’S REVIVAL TIME - The Marvettes (1968) TLP 1002

THE LAMB OF GOD - Joan Creary (1968) TLP 1003

TAKE UP THE CROSS - Various Artists (1968) TLP 1004

JESUS IS MINE - Adinah Edwards (1968) TLP 1005

A further five titles were pressed and released in Jamaica:

MAN FROM GALILEE - Various Artists (1968) TLP 1006

THE BLESSING OF SALVATION - Various Artists (c.1968)

JESUS IS THE ONE - Various Artists (c.1968)

I WILL ABIDE WITH THEE - The Minstrals Five (c.1969)

KEEP YOUR EYES ON JESUS - Ken Parker (1972)
