Here is a Bibletone LP, from the late 1950's, by the Rebels Quartet out of Tampa, Florida. I know they were recording for the Skylite label by 1960 so I am guessing this is just before that. Full LP releases on Bibletone are relatively uncommon. Those by the Rebels are the ones most seen today. They also recorded a slew of 45's for the label during the late 1950's. The songs I have posted here, especially 'The Voice Inside', have a real do-wop meets the Sons of The Pioneers meets Western Swing meets New Orleans Jazz feel about it.

Here are some clippings from the era:
