An Introduction From Armond

Click here to see Imperials Photo Gallery

It is with great pleasure that we present a beautiful collection of Imperials albums, spanning from 1964 to 2002, including all 42 with the names of the men who recorded each album and the song titles.  After that Armond has one called “Through the Years The Velvet Voice” which is a compilation of some solos he has recorded over the 40 years with The Imperials.  This also includes all the albums recorded with Jake Hess who recorded the first 12 albums with this famous group.

Most of our work was recorded in Nashville, Tennessee using many different studios.  “To Sing Is The Thing” was recorded at RCA Victor Sound Stage.  “Sail On” was recorded at Chris Christian’s studio which was in his home in the basement.  Michael Omartian recorded three of our albums in several different studios in Hollywood “Sail On”, “Heed The Call”, “Priority”.  In Bill Schnee’s Studio we recorded “Stand By The Power” using rock musicians from the band known as Toto.  Bill Schnee also recorded the album “Free The Fire”.

Be blessed,

Armond Morales
