The Son Messengers, This is the Dawning, Pinebrook PB 1540, 1970s.
The Son Messengers were located in El Dorado (pronounced el dore-RAY-doe), KS. My mom lived there for a time, and so did on of my sisters with her kids.
Since I’m from Kansas, I decided to try and contact anyone from the group for some background. The family was involved with Gospel music for several years. I did manage to locate Lynn McBride, and he is currently working with a prison ministry. Very, very, good work for a Christian to be involved with. Here’s his response to my request for any information:
Thanks for your interest.
That album was made over 30 years ago and about the worst project we have ever done.
Since then, the group is not performing, as my wife and I are around 70 years old.
We later recorded several other projects and for a time I traveled with the Calvary Echoes Quartet.
At the time of that recording, we were traveling with the Christian Motorcyclists Association and it was produced at Bill Gaither’s studio in Anderson Indiana. We lived in El Dorado, Kansas.
So, to answer your question, whatever you think best. We do not have any copies or upgraded cd’s.
Well, he isn’t too impressed with the music, but the cover is just fantastic. Thanks Mr. McBride!
