Introducing CD 2 of Waxing the Gospel: The Celebrity Recordings
July 28, 2016 hennessey

What great records are included on our forthcoming box set Waxing the Gospel? Here’s the playlist for CD 2. Waxing the Gospel includes 3 CDs, each dedicated to a specific area of the recording industry. CD 2 is focused on celebrity recordings: The records notable for the individual being recorded. Unlike studio pros, celebrities could not spend month upon month before a recording horn, so celebrity recordings are especially rare.
