Gospel Tunes We Love
RESTORED GOSPEL MUSIC FROM THE ORIGINAL 1978 REEL TO REEL TAPES Back in 1978 South Carolina studio producer David Spinks put together the finishing touch on a new & soon to be popular Gospel Album by Jordan & Linda. Drummer Tony Torres provided the drums and David himself added strings to a few selections. The album was sold in Zondervan Bookstores in Columbia, South Carolina at the new Columbia Mall in Richland Northeast, Columbia and became a local best-seller.By year\'s end, the album sold out and eventually the tapes were stored in a crate and forgotten. As years passed, the recordings were misplaced. But in early 2007, the original tapes were re-discovered by South Florida sessions guitarist, Dan Kirby. But the EQ quality most on many songs was not good, and it seemed like a re-issue would not happen. Some of the songs have now been digitally restored and re-issued for the first time. Only a few CD\'s are available and will be discontinued when sold out. Only iTunes will eventually have the only digital versions. Although these rare recordings are now more than 30 years old and worn down with time, the message of our risen Jesus our Lord Jesus Christ is as up to date as ever. Enjoy! Jordan & Linda Kirby / BIO South Carolina\'s brother & sister duo, Jordan & Linda performed from 1962-1968 at Fort Jackson\'s Teen Club / The Pirate\'s Cove and Mickey Finn\'s Club at Two Notch road next to Doug Broomes and A&W rootbeer.
