There was a time in the mid-2000s when not all Numero titles saw a vinyl release, and Arkansas native Fern Jones has been one of the biggest casualties of this format discrepancy. A toe-tapping relic of country gospel, Fern Jones’s sanctified debut was recorded in Nashville in 1958 and released on Dot Records the following year. A bit too unconventional for record-buying bible thumpers, Singing A Happy Song fell on deaf ears. As issued on compact disc in 2005, Fern Jones: The Glory Road included this flawless offering, plus a few kindred selections from the husband and wife collaboration, The Joneses Sing. Available on vinyl October 28th, the 2XLP incarnation of The Glory Road will include both Singing A Happy Song and The Joneses Sing in their entirety, expanding upon the CD version by eight worthwhile tracks. Orders are shipping now from our website, with October 28th being the official release date.

Nice, any plans for a vinyl release of the Tragar & Note Labels compilation? Is it the only Eccentric Soul album not on vinyl ?
