    Fine introduction to Southern Gospel

    Dualtone's reissue of this Crossroads Music compilation features fourteen Southern Gospel selections from 1920 through 1955. This project is an outgrowth of the academic studies of history professor James Goff at Appalachian State University, and his book of the same title. The recordings include well-known names like The LeFevre Trio, Stamps Quartet and Blackwood Brothers, as well as numerous lesser-known, but no less worthy artists. ¶ For the most part these are vocal tracks with musical accompaniment. Unsurprising, given that the Southern Gospel music industry grew out of the need for songbook publishers and singing schools to advertise their wares via touring quartets. As radio and records began to dominate live performance as a means for hearing music, these gospel acts became stars apart from their initial sponsors. ¶ This is an excellent introduction to the genre, with extensive introductory and song-by-song notes by Dr. Goff. The remastering, from a wide variety of source material, brings it all together into a pleasurable, cohesive disc.
