A Complete Cathedrals Collection
Today, a copy I ordered of the Cathedrals’ Smooth as Silk project came in.
This completed a five-year project to find copies of all of the Cathedrals’ recordings (including the two Cathedral Trio projects). Though I picked up a number along the way, I didn’t even try to find a complete set of the nearly innumerable compilations, since they would just take up space I don’t have.
A big thank you to everyone who helped me track down copies, especially to Dean Adkins, who got me going. I had already found a couple of CDs, but when I purchased a dozen or so duplicates from him, that convinced me that this project was actually possible.
Now, on to my next major collecting project: Tracking down all the recordings that key Cathedrals personnel (at least Younce, Payne, Trammell, Bennett, Wolfe, Funderburk, Haase, and Fowler) made before and after their Cathedrals years. I am pretty close on a few, but there is enough left to go to keep me busy for the next few years.
