COZY 274 / 275

The West Virginia based COZY label is a fascinating concern, but an extremely difficult label to document. I'm not going to attempt listing releases on the label, I shall leave that daunting task to others (try links below), but just to whet your appetite here is a nice White Gospel release on COZY
