“EVANGELIST A. A, ALLEN heard daily under the AQUA AND WHITE BIG TOP tent, the largest gospel tent in the world, is known to multitudes as ‘GOD’S MAN OF FAITH AND POWER.’

A network of powerful radio and TV stations carry a daily broadcast of gospel programs and a Sunday telecast to this entire continent and many parts of the world. These programs are televised and recorded while actually in progress under the AQUA AND WHITE GOSPEL BIG TOP TENT.

Likewise the long play albums are more than canned music and singing.  They are actually Holy Ghost services as they transpired under the tent.  The Spirit of the Living God can be felt in your own home as these services come to bless you on record.”

Site finally fixed…

problem
I have been unable to add anything new to BizarreRecords.com for a long while now. I thought it was a problem with the WordPress coding and was going to have to completely rebuild the site. It turns out it was a database problem all along… And I finally fixed it!  You can even comment again!

Please let me know if you see any missing images, audio files, or other issues.

From the liner notes:  “For three years these four aspiring physicists have humbly had the Science Building at Point Loma College as their home.  They found there that they could sing, would sing, so… they did sing!  Headed up by Bob, they had soon wafted their hilarious harmonies into the heart of all who heard.  But, it only started there.  Soon they were on the banquet circuit, singing for churches, and often the main attraction at school functions and presentations.”

Blinded By the Light

upliftersThe Uplifters, “Guided By the Footprints”, 1985, ECP # 2097

The other day I found The Uplifters & the Polston Family side by side at a thrift store and assumed at first it was the same visually challenged group…. but it was not.  A dig through the BizarreRecords archive turned up a few other groups from the time when giant glasses went hand in hand with giant hair.

First World Problems

So as you may or may not have noticed. Bizarrerecords.com has been having some technical issues over the past few months affecting my ability to post and your ability to comment.  After many failed attempts to fix the problem, I finally restored a backup of the site and everything seems to be going swimmingly again.  But a few posts have disappeared, so sorry if you see a few repeats…
