Royal Assembly Church, Pompano Beach, FL, c. 1967/68

-- Time Waits For No One Creed/Crescent LP 3005
-- Take The Lord With You Creed/Crescent LP 3005

* "The Gospel Discography" lists the above two titles as from Nashboro LP 7064 which is most likely an error. "Time Waits For No One" is not on Nashhboro LP 7064, "Take The Lord With You" is present as "Take Him With You", a studio recording. I suppose the Creed/Crescent LP's feature live recordings.
