Tupelo Children's Mansion Part Three

Continuing Vacation Bible School Month, I could not pass up sharing yet another record from one of the best and greatest sources of children's music in the United Pentecostal Church!

As with nearly all the records I share, we don't know the exact year this was recorded. I am not sure why so many records from this era failed to print the year they were made on the back cover, but it is what it is.  However, we have a clue to narrow it down: Pictured on the cover on the steps in the center is then Mississippi Governor Cliff Finch. So that puts this record somewhere between 1976 and 1980.  It might be easier to narrow down based on the ages of the children involved.

Robert Vaughn is featured as the soloists on three songs here.  He's the son of Lanny Wolfe. Like Doug Davis' help in the past with Ken Workman to bring the Tupelo Children's Mansion records to life, Lanny Wolfe is mentioned on the album notes on the back cover as being the creative force that brought this record to life.

There are some truly outstanding tracks here, but my favorites are "Steve" and "One God Apostolic."

  1. This record as well as the ASK It's God's way were done between 1982 and 1987. I lived there and know these two were done while I was there.
