Cross Roads / The Lighthouse

Cross Roads - HE WAS THERE ALL THE TIME (Forrest Green Studios FGS-101); THE LIGHTHOUSE (Cross Roads 504107X). This Escanaba-based gospel group, headed by Russ and Sharon Lind, began in 1979; its first album was made in Clio, MI; its second in Cincinnati, OH, at Queen City Studios. There is no known connection between this Lighthouse and the Canadian brass-rock band, or the University of Michigan Christian performance troupe.

Fred and Nancy Spanton

Fred and Nancy Sparton - DOWN FROM HIS GLORY (no label name NR-6547). This gospel-singing couple from Iron Mountain, backed by pianist Sally Mitchell, recorded their album at Cinema Sound Studios in Grand Rapids, MI.
