PDF - The Jaxyson Records Story

...I feel like I'm encroaching on Bunker Hill's forumly duties, but I found this article on the very obscure realm of post-war country blues and gospel recordings of Jaxyson (pronounced Jackson)

The actual site might be worth looking through as well:

Hardly that.

Brits Opal Louis Nations (aka Martin Humm), Cedric Hayes and Bob Laughton in the early 60s were the UK post war gospel "experts" of their day. When Blues Unlimited came into being (50 years ago next month) the three of them were accorded a Gospel Page in the mag. This page was used as an aid to compiling Post War Gospel Records 1943-1963. This was eventually published in 1992 in 2 Volumes as Gospel Records Discography: A Black Music Discography 1943-1969 (500pps). The latest edition can be seen here http://www.eyeballproductions.com/pages/gospel%20discography.html (as can the other music discographies they publish).

Now that I've run off at the mouth, I bet you wished you never mentioned me in this respect.  ;D
