Happy Mother’s Day from Gospel Disco Obscurities Friday
No, this isn’t Gospel Disco, this Solar Records release is classic, Chicago-12-bar Baptist-downhome re-tooled for the 1980s.
Like books and record jacket covers, you can’t tell from looking, but there is a deep connection.
One of the perks of owning a record label is that you get to publish your mom. Juanita Griffey Hines is the mother of Dick Griffey, founder of Solar Records and talent man for Soul Train. If you know The Whispers, Shalamar, Klymaxx, and Lakeside, you know Solar.
