Sunday Service: Merrill Womach – “Happy Again” (1975)


Merrill Womach is a longtime fundamentalist favorite of those of us who are compelled to shove our closets full of unusual vinyl. In a nutshell: He was a Spokane undertaker who survived an early 60’s plane crash on Thanksgiving Day. It disfigured his face, but not his spirit or voice. He became a musical Christian minister, pumping out albums that evidently sold by the score (they’re all over the place, it seems) and he also starred in a short 1975 film called He Restoreth My Soul. On top of all this, he runs a robust funeral music business and he could probably beat any one of us silly record geeks senseless.

Update: Merrill Womach RIP, December 28, 2014
