Southern Gospel LP Swap #4

Some sites make it relatively easy to swap books and CDs. But I have yet to find something similar for Southern Gospel LPs. So I occasionally set aside a day and a post here for this.

We post the duplicates we have, and, optionally, the ones we seek. Since not all LPs have the same value, we indicate whether we would swap it for, say, 1, 2, or 3 others, rating a common LP as 1 and a rare one as 3. (If it’s worth more than 3, just sell it on eBay!)

  • worth 1 – Blackwood Brothers – In Concert
  • worth 1 – Blackwood Brothers – The Joy of Knowing Jesus
  • worth 1 – Blackwood Brothers – Bill Gaither Songs by the Blackwood Brothers

  1. Are those Collingsworth CD’s you’re wanting out of circulation already?

    • Yes, and for all intents and purposes, they are impossible to find. I have been looking for copies of both since 2005 now – for seven years.

  2. I meant to say ‘discontinued.’

  3. Daniel I have Gaither Trio.. “We Are Persuaded” and “Fully Alive. Fully Alive still has the lyric insert. Can I Get the Kingsmen Live Naturally for these?
