|Occupation||I work hard not to be pinned down by occupation...|
|Location||Kentucky, United States|
|Introduction||My blogs are all about sharing obscure and sometimes odd recordings. My three blogs feature introductions to vintage & unique gospel recordings, atomic age pop and lounge/strange music. |
My gospel blog, The Good, Bad & Ugly Gospel Record Barn focuses on Cincinnati, Ohio and Northern Kentucky area artists who recorded on local labels such as Jewel, Rite and Queen City Album.
In general, I will be posting only samples and not entire albums. If I post only an album cover it is because the content is available on CD or by download.
If an artist is still working, I will usually refrain from posting a sample. I do my best to locate information on the artist.
I realize relatives and friends may find posts of people they knew or know. I hope you will be pleased with what you read.
The worst fate for an artist, I believe, is to be completely forgotten. I do not blog many of the albums I find because the recordings fail to share a personal vision or a special energy. Liking or disregarding art is relative to your experience, but I think that it is better to be remembered for something crazy, than for nothing at all.
|Interests||Collecting unusual things. Making videos, music and artwork. Freedom.|
