Visionaires, the time has finally come! We are now accepting pre-orders for “Said I Had a Vision”: Songs & Labels of David Lee, 1960-1988. The test pressings sound incredible–rich, bassy, and booming–and the first Paradise of Bachelors LP will be in our hands within just a few weeks. This anthology of rare, largely unheard North and South Carolina soul and gospel is limited to 500, so order yours before they ship internationally. Each 150g LP includes a deluxe 8-page 11×11″ booklet containing more than 10,000 words of extensively researched liner notes, plus a vintage 1988 SCOP Gospel newsletter, and a coupon for digital download of the entire record–all for only $16.

Further details, including press materials, images, audio samples of each side, and forthcoming download links and bonus features, are available at our Vision product page (, also a permanent link on the right column of this blog.) The official street date for the record is Friday, November 26, 2010. If you would like to pre-order a copy, please email your name and shipping address to We can accept Paypal payments of $16 + $5.75 domestic shipping & handling at that email address as well. Thank you for your support!
