My feeble attempt at documenting my record collection and music obsession.

Gospel Night: Tommy James Church Street Soul Revival
I have always loved Tommy James and the Shondells. And it is a crying shame that they are not in the Rock and Roll Hall of Shame, er Fame. Until artists other 60's artists like Tommy James get in the HOF, it WILL be a HOS. Whew, I'm fired up..I was about to get really negative but then I remembered its gospel Sunday. I'd rather rejoice than spit hate! Tommy has a biography out and I would love to read it soon. He had a notorious drug habit in the late 60's but became clean as well as a Christian. He has written some wonderful uplifting spiritual songs in the early 70s. I believe this was late 69 or early 1970. I believe it was previously issued as a B side to a TJ and the Shondells 45.
