vortex of love

I took these pics of records from someone’s great collection at the MSP Music Expo in Minneapolis. I’m just now posting them! Of course I forgot the guy’s name who they belonged to, so if you see this send me an email so I can give you credit!

From Night Clubs to Christ

Dr. Van Impe
“From Night Clubs to Christ”
Victory/Singcord #ZLP-785

From the Back Cover:

“Dr. Jack Van Impe had an unusual beginning in life, since his father was a night club entertainer who taught him to read music at the early age of four. He started accordion lessons at five and played in clubs by the time he was eight. After many years of being in this environment, he was converted and started to use the instrument for the service of the Lord.”

The Greatest Gospel Album Ever Produced

Tammy Faye Bakker
“The Lord’s On My Side”
PTL #RLP-1822
1980

From the Back Cover:

This is Tammy Faye at her best.

I’ve seen her soar like a bird in moments of joy.  I’ve seen her almost inundated in a torrent of disappointment and pain.  I’ve watched older people love her as their own.  I’ve seen the awe and respect the young have for her.  I’ve experienced her as a wife and mother of  my children.  She is complex, yet simple.  She is open to all that is new, yet deeply committed to timeless principles….

I personally think this is the greatest gospel album ever produced. But, of course, I may be a bit prejudiced since I am her husband.

Giggle You to Death

Tammy Faye Bakker
“Sings PTL Club Favorites”
NewPax #33044
1977

From the Back Cover:

“Tammy Faye is very likely to giggle you to death the first time you run into her in person. In a world that spins day after day with most people walkin’ around with a long face she definitely stands out as a living example of bubbling excitement.  She lives my a code that is best described in a new song… entitled “If Life Hands You a Lemon, Start Makin’ Lemonade”.

Hooked on a Feeling

Jeff (Steinberg)
“Something Special”
Hymntone #HPS 7739

From the Back Cover:

“This album is special because of the songs — some of the finest this generation has produced– because of the artist– Jeff Steinberg is a miracle– his indomitable will– his zest for life combine to make him one of today’s most unusual witnesses for Jesus Christ…. Handicapped? Well maybe! Depends on your definition. The first time I saw him he had that metal hook of his in the air praising God for his salvation.” — Doug Oldham
