Jacket design for the upcoming LP release from Rev. Branch, I've Got Heaven on My Mind.
Recorded and engineered live at the Heavenly Rainbow Baptist Church in South Los Angeles by Todd Burke (who also provides the album's cover photograph), the record will be released in conjunction with Mike McGonigal and YETI later this year.
Watch this space for details as they become available.
Reverend Raymond Branch is joined on this recording by the late Brother Roland Payne on lead vocal. Roland Payne was a childhood friend of Rev. Branch's and in their youth, the two made up half of a Gospel quartet in Louisiana. A move to Los Angeles late in life reunited him with Rev. Branch, and it is from that era that this recording, "The Lord Will Make a Way Somehow," originates.
Brother Roland Payne, vocal; Rev. Branch, guitar and vocal.
