Don & Faith

Unto Him Don and Faith Dunlap.jpg

Religious records are a category which I do find grimly fascinating, as much for the pious sentiment or illustrations on many of the sleeves as anything.  Georgia dwelling Don and Faith Dunlap here are at first sight a curiously matched couple, strolling toward the camera in front of a clinker built chapel of some sort. But the pair are still going strong and you can now find them on Facebook (they’ve even been over to visit Downton Abbey if the heavily redacted image they posted is anything to go by!) celebrating their 50th anniversary. Don has signed the back sleeve for a former owner, although instead of “best wishes” has suggested a Bible passage to look up. I’d imagine the album dates from the early 1970s. I did find a box full of this sort of stuff a couple of years at a charity shop in the godless wastes of South Yorkshire which I picked over to make a selection, I’ll get some scanned eventually. They were all about 50p which is fine, but I was surprised to see one of Don and Faith’s other second hand albums being sold for $69.99 on Amazon. Especially as it still has the thrift shop price sticker for 99 cents clearly visible on the back.  I’m sure the Bible has something to say about profiteering like that!
