Let’s Reconsider…

September 6, 2011

Album titles or concepts that should have been properly consulted…


Florida Boys – “The Many Moods Of The Florida Boys”

(At least they had the courage to tell the truth…they didn’t really need superior PR to sell records.)


The Kingsmen – “Reverand Everette Beverly and Sister Annie Laura

(I’m not exactly crackin’ on the song.  But I’m sure there could’ve been some consulting on a shorter album title.)


More Kingsmen… – “1686 Pounds of Gospel

(Nobody flaunted their weight collectively like The Kingsmen.  But that’s approximately 241 lbs per person.  Wish my offensive line was that big.  We would’ve won a State Championship.)


Equally, the Kingsmen & Florida Boys have their share of terrific album titles/cover concepts.  When you put out 3 albums per year for 30+ years, you’re bound to strike gold every now and then.

    🙂 Interesting idea. If you want to go for a long title, try the Oak Ridge Boys’ “Old Fashioned, Down Home, Hand Clappin’, Foot Stompin’ Southern Style Gospel Quartet Music” 😀

    • I found a new guest blogger. Gather it up. If I ever have any Oak Ridge questions, I know where to go, no doubt.

        What is funny that in many listings the title is shortened to something like “Old Fashioned…Quartet Music” because the columns are too narrow to fit the title. 🙂 It really is a great album and the last album they did on Columbia and practically the last they did before going country. (Although they did do a live lp on their own label that was half gospel and half country in between the two).

  2. I challenge you to find an album title longer than “James Blackwood & the Blackwood Brothers Combine with Hovie Lister & the Statesmen to Wish You a Musical Merry Christmas”.

    I love the Kingsmen albums and covers from the 1970s and 1980s.

  3. One of the most unique album titles in my entire collection is the Hopper Brothers & Connie’s 1975 recording ‘Lord Help Me Bury The Hatchet’.
