REV. CAMPBELL with the Wonder Boy
Jun 55 (BMI clearance on 1st July 55)
521-A - Old Ship Of Zion
(R Campbell / J Smith Jr.)   (Golden State Songs)
521-B - You Can't Hurry God
(R Campbell / J Smith Jr.)   (Golden State Songs)
Po Box 2069, South Greenwood, SC
HOYTS 521 was also issued on HOLLYWOOD 1036. I believe Rev Campbell is a black artist - a rarity amongst Starday Customs. Wonder Boy is apparently a J Smith Jnr. Two other recordings on Hollywood (“No Room For Liars” / “Stop That” - Hollywood 1037), (“This Is A Mean Old World” / “You Can’t Fool God” - Hollywood 1064) and at least three releases on HSE in the late 60’s pretty much exhaust the info I could find on Campbell. As an aside, Billboard stated (Feb 6th 1954) that Don Pierce had gained complete control of the Hollywood and Rec In Hollywood labels from John Dolphin. (MC / PJT / Gospel Records Vol 1 - C Hayes / R Laughton / Nate Gibson / M Proost)
