Daywind to release Skylite Recordings?

I got the following email from a friend of mine last week (hat tip, DP).  I was hoping Singing News would have their March issue online before I posted this but as of a few minutes ago they haven’t.

Daywind is Releasing a double CD of the old Skylite Recordings. Blackwood Brothers, Statesmen, Speer Family, Masters V, Oak Ridge QT and JD Stamps.

This would be great!  I’d love to see them release these older records as Canaan has.  It would be even better, in my opinion, if they were releasing the complete albums.

    A lot of those Skyline masters (at least for the Oaks) have been released so many times that it’s mind-boggling!! Go to Wal-Mart and pick up any CD that says “Oak Ridge Boys” and “Gospel,” and odds are you’re getting the Skylite recordings to varying quality. I don’t know if Joel Gentry still owns them and leases them out dirt cheap or if they’re considered public domain, but different companies have been releasing them for years.

Have something to say?
