Recollections of the hunter and his prey

About this blog

This is a blog describing the descent into madness brought about by record collecting. It is primarily about the hunt, the smells, the disappointments, the excitement, and the random occurrences surrounding vinyl records. I listen to them too, a lot, but from my perspective the hunt is what makes collecting records an exciting hobby, although it may be maddeningly frustrating and incomprehensible to those around me.

On the hunt for:

  • Articles of Faith-Give Thanks LP
  • Bhopal Stiffs 10 song demo tape
  • Black Cat Bones-Barbed Wire Sandwich LP
  • Blues Creation - Live LP
  • Freddie Hubbard-Black Angel LP
  • Henry Franklin - The Skipper LP
  • Herbie Hancock-Flood LP
  • Mount Everest Trio - LP
  • Neu!-75 LP
  • Revenant - Prophecies of a Dying World LP
  • Sam Cooke-Ain't That Good News LP
  • Sam Cooke-Night Beat LP
  • Strike Under-Immediate Action 12" EP
  • The Effigies-Haunted Town 12" EP
  • The Virgil Lights - (anything else out there besides the 45?)
  • Watchtower-Energetic Disassembly LP
  • Witchcraft-s/t LP

Reverend Columbus Mann-They Shall Be Mine b/w Jesus Loves

There was another record show in Albuquerque last week, and this was the first time I tried to look for gospel records at this show. I didn't do too well, and I'm not surprised, how many gospel records are floating around the southwest? I did find a few 45s from one seller, and since he didn't know anything at all about the records he had, I got a pretty good deal. This record here by Rev. Columbus Mann I got for free. I had never heard of him before, but after some checking around online after I got home (one of the few slightly successful gospel searches), the LP this single came from is a highly sought after and very expensive gospel gem. The first track is much better, check it out.

Reverend Columbus Mann was the first Gospel singer for Motown. He was a very talented musician and an excellent song writer. His music has inspired many of today's musicans.

His first album was They Shall Be Mine. Listen to the words of his songs.

He is well know in the Detroit area where he was born and raised.

Thank you for listing his recording.
