BRC Records !


Gibson Family Singers 
BRC Records ( Broadcast Record Club) # 1024
Side A - Holy Jesus by Gibson Family Singers.
Side B - Jesus, My Savior and Friend by W.A. Newsom.

Here is some superb country gospel bop from the Gibson Family Singers on the BRC label out of Cleveland, Tennessee. Not sure of recording date but more than likely early to mid 50's .
Not much is know on the group but they did have a 45 record out on their own 'Gibson' label in 1957 with a song called 'I'm Going To Heaven' .
This is a split record with the B side by W.A. Newsom which is not the best song I have ever heard and sung in a very strange warble type style .
But the A side is pure heavenly magic, superb vocals, brilliant steel and just the sweetest guitar pickin' you'll hear this side of the sun ( check out the second solo). 
The label is based in Cleveland, Tennessee on the aptly named Bible Street.
