[Both the link above and the link in the vertical sidebar, will take you to our main Gas Collection page.]
In the late 90's and early 2000's, several record companies got together and produced 25 albums called, The 7ball Gas Collection, which were for the purpose of promoting budding (and already established) music groups signed to Christian record labels . . . and a few unsigned artists as well. The recording quality was often poor, the talent was sometimes . . . up-and-coming, and the popular genre's were . . . sometimes offensive, BUT the CD's are AWSUMM, and (in my humble opinion) every person who is just getting into music should listen to some of this stuff. It will no doubt improve their musical appreciation. (It's true. After listening to this stuff, you'll love almost anything!)
The Gas Collection albums never provided lyrics, so consequently, when the listener wishes to know exactly what the singer is saying (dirty hard to figure out sometimes) they have to look up the lyrics online. Unfortunately, many of the lyrics cannot be found (or if they can, we sure didn't take the time to find them). So, we decided that it would be an excellent idea to have one site on the internet with every single GC lyric on it, easy to access. We took this awesome task upon ourselves. Who are we? We are Dr. Elimlech Amion Lady and Dr. Nagol Warden Metswath. (. . . Um, those are pen names.) Continuing on: Unfortunately, because many of the lyrics are not to be found, it is a painstaking process to listen to the songs over and over and OVER again, writing the words as we go, till finally a whole song is in place. However, poor recording quality and lousy voices often prove difficult, so some lyrics might not be 100% true, and a few cannot be deciphered at all (which are noted with a _____). Please bear with us, and know that we are simply GC fans trying to make your life and musical enjoyment . . . more enjoyable.
Some songs are hard to figure out and some are hard to find online (some are both!), but we'll have them all here eventually. If you happen to read the lyrics to a song and (for some reason) are positive that we got some of the wording wrong, please don't hesitate to let us know, and give us your suggestion on what the wording should actually be. We need all the help we can get. . . . (Now, to figure out how you can contact us. Um . . . we'll figure it out.)
Since Dr. Lady is in university right now, and she is the main brain behind the site, new lyrics could likely be put onto the site slowly. But not to worry, the lyrics are still being figured and written, it'll just take some time for you to be able to read them.
If there is any way we can make improvement so that things around here are easier for you to comprehend, let us know. . . . In the same way that you'll let us know about wrong lyrics. . . .

Ps. There are still very few albums in my growing music collection that I listen to with greater frequency than these. I love 'em, and more people should know about them. Spread the word.
