These two reissued records on one disc are an outstanding representation of the silvertone's tenure at specialty records in the early-mid fifties. In order to compete and survive in the heyday of hard gospel, the silvertones themselves converted to a hard gospel sound and style, with mixed results: their work was convincing, engaging and expert, however, they didn't truly find their sound(and success) until they went with vee-jay records in 1956. The years at specialty records were lean ones financially for the group(there were only four sides released during their whole time with the label!), yet artistically, a smashing success. "Trouble in my way", a song popularized originally by the Dixie Hummingbirds, absolutely smokes in the hands of the silvertones, and is a hard gospel classic. "After awhile" is another great song, while "let's go" and "prayer in my mouth" are two of my personal favorites. Most of the songs here are either acapella or feature minimal instrumental accompaniment. All in all, an excellent disc.
