Rainbow Sound Inc. Records HistoryPosted: September 26, 2014
Initially called Valor Records (circa era 1961). Rainbow Sound Inc was founded by Reverend Charles Massegee in 1962. Reverend Massegee, a Southern Baptist evangelist, began recording church choirs and singers on location with his own portable equipment. As the label grew and, business expanded Rainbow Sound Inc added a Studio and recording equipment. In 1969 Massegee brought in Bob Cline as a full time engineer and manager at Rainbow Sound Inc. The labels continued to grow. Between 1969 to 1971 alone Rainbow Sound recorded over 200 Gospel albums! Rainbow Sound Inc became one of the first to make sound-tracts for Gospel singers to record with. At the height of Rainbow Sound Inc. the label had over 4000 singers involved in their sound tract club. Rainbow Sound Inc. was sold in 1982 and under new ownership the label failed quickly.
Below is a ever expanding and correcting discography for the label Rainbow Sound Inc. There are many releases I have not yet found, and many recordings I do not know the date of release for… if you can help, leave a comment.
