Plaster Saints – Music & Pictures

A note about the music…

I digitized all the recordings from scratchy and warbly cassette tapes that sat in a box for decades. The sound quality notwithstanding, the music wouldn’t have turned out well at all if it weren’t for all the musicians who helped — all for free, I should add. Thanks to Marv Ellis, for running the recording sessions, to Paul Contos, and Marv again, for their assistance with the horn lines, and to Tom Coyan, for leading the pit band and helping fine-tune the chord changes.

In addition to the musicians and singers listed on the program (see picture below), there were many others who played and sang on my master recordings: Joseph Anderson, Enoch Asmuth, Jeff Ballard, Adam Beach, JC Cianello, Mona Crawford, Nancy Heth, Carol Fryer (Luper), Denise Moon, David Valdez (that solo on Three Kings still wows me), Pete Vossler, Kenny Wolleson, and Bill Youngs (with an ‘s’). I consider myself fortunate to have crossed paths with such talent. Also, thanks to The Christian Life Center in Santa Cruz and The First Baptist Church in Watsonville for the use of their facilities for rehearsal and recording.
