I am so excited to announce a new episode entitled Joycast with DJ HiPrayze: Onyx International Records that will debut on Sensational Sounds Radio on April 2, 2019 @ 6:00PM (EDT) and on DJ HiPrayze Radio on April 6, 2019 @ 6:00AM and 6:00PM (EDT)!!!
This show has been in the making for over 30 years!!! During the early 1980s, Gentry McCreary and Butch McGhee founded Onyx International Records, which launched the careers of Gospel Music Artists that changed the very fabric of the genre. These legendary artists include: Thomas Whitfield, Vanessa Bell Armstrong, Keith Pringle, Danniebelle Hall, Rev. Paul Morton, and The Richard Smallwood Singers.
Many of these recordings were lost when the major music distribution platform moved from vinyl records to compact discs during the early 1980s. However, I have discovered that a few of the titles were released digitally. These titles include:
- Vanessa Bell Armstrong – Chosen (1984) RO3825;
- Vanessa Bell Armstrong – Peace Be Still (1983) R3831;
- The Richard Smallwood Singers – Psalms (1984) RO3833; and
- The Richard Smallwood Singers – The Richard Smallwood Singers (1982) R3803.
I am so excited to announce that all is not lost! I connected my USB Turntable to my computer, cleaned up my vinyl archives, and digitized the remaining titles to present them to you during this exciting show. These titles include:
- Thomas Whitfield – Hold Me (1983) R3809;
- Keith Pringle – Perfect Peace (1984) RO3784;
- Danniebelle Hall – Unmistakably Danniebelle (1983) RO3837;
- Danniebelle Hall – Song Of The Angels (1983) RO3838; and
- Rev. Paul Morton – Jesus, When Troubles Burden Me Down (1985) RO3820.
I hope that this show will bring back fond memories for those who remember these timeless classics and introduce others to this groundbreaking music.
Enjoy and be blessed!
