  • This Is Religion - a gallery

    Lord help us, it's a fresh gallery of records with a religious theme.
    Covering different faiths {but mostly Christian} I hope you'll forgive
    me for not digging up many Muslim albums.




    first up is a cheap BG album released on RCA's budget Camden label in 1969
    it's a bit preachy especially on side 2, but there's a nice UK spin off single below









    Live Pope album from '66 released on Decca, as you can see from the tracklist this is basically a Greatest Hits set.









    long playing recording from Newcastle of the religious TV show Saints Alive! not as interesting as that might sound.







    the rear of the sleeve for this flexi-disc proclaims "Harry Edwards has been
    described as the greatest healer the world has seen since the time of Jesus"
    pretty good going for a middle aged chap from Guildford in Surrey!







    Still on a Christian tip is this soundtrack to the {truly godawful} movie
    Catch My Soul, the only film directed by the late, great Patrick McGoohan,
    he really should not have bothered.









    I found this to be a quite creepy double album of songs which was
    originally released on the Vanguard label in 1968. Judge for yourself here








    If listening to The Family of Apostolic left you speaking in tongues
    then you may need to sit down and listen to these fine words of advice








    or alternatively try the alternative Indian approach



    and really chill out







    not to be confused with the great TV show of the 70's with Fred Dinage
    this is a selection of Christain ditties sung by The Campers, not so much How! as Why?







    Thank God for JC then with his narration and songs as he walks a line across Israel






    putting Jean Michel Jarre to shame with a 'Sound & Light Show in The Citadel, Jerusalem'
    is this great album with music by Noam Sheriff, adapted from the original soundtrack







    I have been known to spin selections from this fine album into my Easter mixes,
    especially the funky track 'What's The Buzz - Crucify Him!'







    a weird 7" featuring selections from the 1972 BBC TV serial written by Galton & Simpson
    and deals with the ramifications over plans to install a new urinal in a village square.
    It has a priest on the cover so I thought it best to include it!






    and finally {thank Christ for that} a simple album with a simple message

    Family of apostlic has a really creepy sleeve...
    "Only one thought left, that makes me come alive,
    and that is you and me side by side, on the licorice ride"

      lovely thread but I hope you dont mind me asking. What on earth kind of pleasure do you get from buying records with the best of the popes hits on it and the like. I mean there are so many under rated £5 funk/rock/folk/reggae/<add your genre here>, tunes that you could never buy them all. I mean I can get with looking at these covers but I am really interested (and not just taking the piss) to understand why you might have these in your collection.

      Or perhaps I should just stop drinking wine and mixing with cold remedies.

        no your right, I wonder too myself...
        I just bought so many of these kinds of albums when I was a single chap
        scouring the boots etc in the 80's mostly and I now I drop the odd
        sample from them into mixes on the show, so I like to think they have more
        than aesthetic value.
        Course now I am a married chap who scours the boots etc collecting records
        with strange covers but it seems I have a lot more competition than I used to!

          I've been wondering the same

          Collections can consist of anything, good, bad, rare, or maybe strange and fascinating curios.

          You have wonderful things to look at, even if (and I mean no offence) their appeal in such abundance is perhaps a little hard to fathom.

          What's the motivation HG?

          Answered already I must work on my typing speed.

            I've got boxes of this sort of stuff, too...
            We know when a mate buys it for you too.

              I love the over the top music production of the Billy Graham record - really gets me every time I put it on
              The first few minutes are really weird - especially once the narration sets in
              Shame it can't keep it up for the whole record though

              Great stuff HG - keep em coming
              None too weird for me!!!

                      Personally really enjoy these posts Head Gardner, so keep up the excellent work. There are many reasons to buy these records (album art, interesting social documents, great samples), but surely the most important is that people like us are stopping charity shop shelves becoming clogged up with this stuff. Anyway, here's a few from me



























                      You also can have fun mixing this:

                      And then backmasking it.
                      I ran away to a charity shop & there's no way it's gonna stop.

                        Do you have many whistling records?
                        To infinity - and beyond!

                              BestDressedChicken said that the flipside 'Scarlet Woman' by 'Chakra' was to do with a guy called Mike Magee who was behind an occult mag in the 70's & as I've never been able to find anything else on the label, it sounds like it could have been a private-pressing financed by him.

                              As for the whistling, can't wait to dig out my Ronnie Ronalde 78s...
