This disc is a far-reaching collection of turn-of-the-century American religious song that suffers no shortage of spine-tingling performances throughout. Unlike similar compilations, it makes no racial or geographical distinctions, presenting rare recordings of raw hillbilly hymns (Morris Family) alongside gritty sanctified blues (Blind Willie Davis), Anglo-American sacred songs by congregations (George Long and His Singers), ecstatic preaching-singing recordings (Reverend J.F. Forest, Washington Phillips), and classic spirituals (Golden Gate Jubilee Quartet)--not to mention music that's essentially a combination of all the above (Brothers Wright and Williams). Acolytes of shape-note singing will enjoy some of the earliest Sacred Harp music ever recorded, by the stripped-down Roswell Sacred Harp Quartette. --Mike McGonigal
