Brown and Jackson - Self-Titled LP / David Dale - Hide and Seek LP / Davis Pedigo & Band LP

**** new info

Alright guys this is what I have of the brown and jackson lp I posted a little while ago, its the entire album uncut a and b in an mp3, but for some reason the first track stars about halfway in? i dunno why, but 95% of its there so thats what i got, enjoy.

here it is
************ Get the jackson and brown^



Okay, so this post is more about the 'art of digging' than it is about getting some radical new shiznit to listen to and impress your friends. I'm not saying I'm a grandmaster, but it never ceases to amaze me how you can expand your knowledge base of genres and styles that collectors are looking for, then apply that to your dig and make something of it in the crates. So this post is about late 70s to mid 80s Christian soft rock/pop AOR singer songwriter type stuff. Its pretty much always done by one or two white guys with a small band set up. Usually some soft acoustic guitars or laid back cool electric guitars, sometimes bossa beats, easy drums or bongos thorwn in for good measure, a staple of the genre is the electric piano, and most of all, as you will see, it needs to sound like MICHAEL MCDONALD. More will be explained below....


First we Have Brown and Jackson - Self-titled LP. aka Yacht Shoes, Razor cuts, Million dollar mustaches, and Jesus. This lovely item was unearthed and brought back into the weird collectible world of 80s white guy christian music* where it belongs. This lovely gem is one of the illusive ZERO google results LPs. Most of the stuff like this I find goes to Japanese collectors, hey don't ask me, they are admirably meticulous about subgenres, obscurities, and archiving. This is about a 200 dollar album. Or so it sold on ebay, as there is no 'list price' for it.
(*if you go digging for this type of music, which is very wise because a lot of it is still out there, you want to find something with the sound of michael mcdonald, with christian lyrics/themes, though you want more progressive lyrics and original songs not traditional stuff and certainly not group vocals, I cant tell you how many great xian folk records I've found that were ruined because of choir singing, and most importantly... you really want fewer than 1000 pressings or else its not gonna be rare enough to even matter.)

LISTEN TO BROWN AND JACKSON GET THEIR PRAISE ON (samples only, if anyone actually wants the entire LP leave a comment and perhaps Ill put it up.)





Davis, Pedigo & Band - Self-Titled LP

Another Fine example I dug up, this one has a bit more of a new wave/soft rock leaning, and slightly less progressive lyrics, which made it sell for $130, a bit less than Brown and Jackson... Listen to it, learn the sound and get digging, it's the most fun way to get paid I've found yet.




And Finally for your listening pleasure, the crowning jewel of my white guy 80s christian soft rock pop LP digging adventure, the $250 David Dale - Hide and Seek LP. It has a cover song of another legendary xian modern soul album that is by Jim Schmidt (from the Imperials) called 'serious', people eat up the Jim Schmidt album , which ironically I have also dug up recently, but NO ONE had ever heard of this guy, another illustrious zero google results duder. So, lets see... Michael Mcdonald sound? check. Christian lyrics in a progressive styling? check. Awesome 80s cover? check. Absurdly small pressing? Check. And most importantly, my Japanese buyer friend was equally impressed with its resume...

Have a taste of the song 'Serious'

Okay guys, thanks for your enthusiasm, I am kinda blown away by it really. Here's the deal, sadly, my rip of the David Dale album can not be found, I think I recorded it in a a huge wav file with a few other albums then accidnetally deleted it before I extracted the David Dale LP, and I realized this after I sold it. I might be able to talk to the guy who bought it from me but I really doubt it. However, I do have Brown and Jackson, and I will post it up in its entirety for you. I also did not rip the entire David Pedigo Band because I thought it was not wort listening to personally, I sold it and that was the end of it. I also have the best 4 tracks from the Jim Schmidt LP so I will include that with the Brown and Jackson next post. The thing is, ripping albums takes time, and I have literally a 4 foot tall pile of stuff to rip, so a lot of times I only rip the songs I really like from an album, other times if I don't like the record I wont rip it at all, except for sound clips, I have started to try to rip everything that sells for a lot of money and isnt available on the internet regardless of my personal tastes, which is the reason I actually do have the Brown and Jackson. I hope this makes some sense and I appologize for posting soundclips of stuff that I dont have the entire album for anymore. But records move in and out of here pretty fast, and I can never predict what people really want to have. Sorry for the long post but I felt I had to clear this up.

esteban said...

David Dale was an incredible man of God when I had the great privilege of hearing him and knowing him when his LP was released in the 80s. He did some work for the youth group I was involved with at the time. Man oh man do I wish I could find a download of this album! All my searches for any info at all on what's happened to him or for anything on this album yielded this find only and it is lost...oh the sadness!!

transpacjackson said...

Hey, I know, not ripping this album before I sold it was probably one of the dumbest moves in my record collecting career. I've had over 20 requests to get this album, to tell you the truth I have tried to track this man down but his name is so common it's been quite difficult. I wish I could help you but I really didn't think much of the record at the time, I just recorded a little clip and put it up on Ebay, and then I realized how sought after it was, it's not exactly my thing but obviously it is for others, so I wish I could help you like I said but all I have left is this short clip. Hope you have better luck tracking the elusive David Dale down than I did.

Wow it would be nice to see what happened to DDale........ after all i'm living in Texas and president of my own production company. Life has been awesome and I agree that is the worst album cover ever but the music was from the heart.

transpacjackson said...

Whoa, did THE David Dale seriously just leave me a comment? That is friggin awesome. I love how often people look up their own stuff, hey, I do it too, but really that is good to hear that you are doing well, I think my blog friends enjoyed your album quite a lot, especially the cover song of Jim Schmidt, thanks for posting, I'm not sure if you are aware of this but I sold a Sealed copy of your album for $250.00 you might want to look into that. Just sayin.

DDale said...

Hey Trans thanks for the good laugh. Your blog is awesome. Keep up the good work. I enjoyed reading it a lot.....

I was in a youth/college group he worked with in Lubbock. And David sang at my wedding 21 Years ago. I had Hide and Seek on tape but all I can find is the case.
