Voices Of Thunder
Male Chorus Of Greater New Mt. Moriah Baptist Church
Arnold LP 2465
Givhan Rec. Co. (subs. Ke Ke records), Detroit, Michigan
#19499 /19500

Arranged and directed by Herbert Pickard.

Ke Ke records was owned by Stanford Givon.

On the Givhan label, "As little as 3 releases appeared on this early 60s mystery local Detroit label. Every one is RARE and all are fine examples of that vibrant Motor City era." :
  • 2465 Leonard Pierce PK4M-3458/9
  • 2466 Master Keys PK4M-3460/1
  • 2468 Rodger Wade PK4M-3462/3
All three singles pressed in 1963 by the RCA Custom division are numbered 108 (?). In small print, another number seems to form a coherent series. (#246x)

On the Ke Ke label, two singles are known :
  • Melvin Davis (1964, RCA pressing)
  • Juanita Williams

Other gospel albums on the Mighty Voices of Thunder were also released but there is still confusion about the name of the label for some of these (Ke Ke or Arnold).
