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.
