Toby and Barb – Father Knows Best


OK folks. I admit it. I am a full fledged record hoarder. I am a good year into full on gluttony. Like daily thrift store visits, hours and hours in stores/dollar bins, weekends of garage/estate sales, ebay, craigslist, you name it. It is not easy with a wife and friends and neighbors. It is embarrassing having stacks and stacks and boxes and boxes of records cluttering a one bedroom apartment. My space planning skills have allowed me to conceal it a bit longer than some of my sloppier cohorts, but I am quickly approaching the saturation point. I blame Toby and Barb.

This thrift store purchase was intended to set a threshold for me: a new low. I’d been having lots of good luck taking chances on innocuous looking private press records, particularly with Christian records still bountiful around Southern California. It is easy to spot records with The Archivist look, but there are far more Xian records that both look and sound like MOR Christian Pop Lite / White Gospel…not typically appealing to these ears. Toby and Barb has THAT look, and so I left it behind on several visits over several months. I’m not sure what it was on that fateful day, I must have been feeling more daring than usual, but I bought it on my lunch break.

As expected, most of the album is pretty tepid CCM, but ever since I dropped the needle on the following track I have been unable to keep myself from buying, well, pretty much everything! Toby and Barb shred it for Jesus:
