Raymond Myles New Orleans Gospel Genius Vinyl LP

New Orleans Gospel Genius is the 1988 debut and first of only two albums cut by maverick gospel singer/pianist/entertainer extraordinaire Raymond Myles before he was tragically murdered in 1997 at the age of only 40 in the same city he was raised and remains a legend in. The son of gospel star Christine Myles and a childhood protégé of Mahalia Jackson, Myles' moving renditions of "His Eye Is on the Sparrow" and "I Go To The Rock" are powerful and inspirational examples of his immense talents.

"Raymond Myles was like a comet shooting across the sky. He was here one minute: brilliant, incandescent and unmistakably unique. And then, just as quickly, he was gone...Some of Raymond's biggest fans were Harry Connick, Jr., Dr. John, Allen Toussaint, Davell Crawford and the Neville Brothers...In his transcendent gospel music career, Raymond personified the spiritually focused artist struggling for career traction in an entertainment culture firmly rooted in the secular." - producer Leo Sacks
