New to Reference Section: Skylite Discography
Over the last few years, I have compiled some discographical information on several of Southern Gospel’s record companies. I am launching the first entry in that series, the Skylite Discography, today.
While this method is not foolproof, it is sometimes the only way to arrive at an approximation of a record’s release date. Through the 1950s and 1960s, and into the 1970s in some cases, many records did not include the year of their release. But label releases invariably included a label number, assigned consecutively to the assorted projects released by the label. Sometimes, records were released on an accelerated schedule or delayed, so some dates are interpolated, but as a general rule, when Skylite SSLP-6034 and SSLP-6038 came out in 1965, more likely than not 6035, 6036, and 6037 also did.
Any corrections and changes would be heartily welcomed.
