Dating LeFevre’s “Songs of Happiness” LP
I recently picked up the LeFevre’s Songs of Happiness LP at a local thrift store. The liner notes say that it was the group’s first LP. Rex Nelon is on the project, and it says he joined the group in September 1957.
It also says the group had been touring for 33 years and indicates they started counting in 1925, which would place the album circa 1958. Can anyone confirm this?
Songs of Happiness is a very solid recording, featuring, among other songs, “The Old Gospel Ship” and “Lord Carry Me Home” (recently recorded by the Perrys as “Come and Get Me”).
