Our Gospel series continues with this second edition review of one of the most famous and prestigious post war gospel labels – Peacock Records, a subsidiary of Duke Records. Based in Dallas, the label was one of the first to openly promote Gospel music like R&B and reaped rewards for many years to come.  They were also one of the first companies to promote Gospel as a commercial and popular genre and not purely as a religious medium.These are the labels first releases and have never been available on CD before, in fact some tracks have never been heard since their original release on 78. Continuing the theme of the last release, the liner notes for this release carry on being written by Opal Louis Nation, one of the world’s leading authorities of Gospel Music.
