Elder Richard Bryant's Santified Singers - Okeh 8559 (1928)

Traded away a copy I had found in Georgia several years ago but it had an issue. (First trade I ever entered into)

Although this one has an issue as well...it's worn slap out...very happy to have a copy back on the shelf.

Haven't been able to nail it down but members of the Memphis Jug Band may have accompanied on these sides.

Recorded in Memphis on February 28, 1928.

On another note, This seems to complete the recordings of John Orange who had recorded with Jimmie Gunn's orchestra a year earlier.
