I am very pleased to present yet another rare LP on the Audio Lab label, "A Variety Of Country Sacred Songs". This fantastic transfer comes to us courtesy of the Attic's good friend Rounder, who previously sent the J.E. Mainer track from this album to add to the recent post of J.E.'s King recordings. Thanks Rounder!
Standard vintage King country gospel fare comprises this 1961 collection, with many great titles including the Delmores and Turners as the "Harlan County Four" and early Johnny & Jack as "King's Sacred Quartet". Prime stuff....
1. Brother Claude Ely-Holy, Holy, Holy
2. Shorty Long-No Wars In Heaven
3. Harlan County Four-Show Me The Way
4. Bill Franklin-That Moon's No Stopping Place For Me
5. Esco Hankins-Wait For The Light To Shine
6. J. E. Mainer's Mountaineers-If I Could Hear My Mother Pray Again
7. Wade Mainer-I'm Not Looking Backward
8. Trace Family Trio-Take Time To Understand
