Calhoun Sacred Quartet - Victor 20543

Calhoun Sacred Quartet - Victor 20543
Life`s Railway To Heaven / The Church In The Wildwood
recorded February 16, 1927 in Atlanta, Georgia

Here`s yet one more "only disc issued" offering. What we have here is a group that`s sort of split off from the Georgia Yellow Hammers. The artists are Lawrence Neal, Philip Reeve, Ernest Moody, George Pickard with Jewell Reeve on piano. Both Philip Reeve and Ernest Moody were in the Georgia Yellow Hammers, as well as recording as a duet on their own and in another group called the Turkey Mountain Singers. I suppose they are called the Calhoun Sacred Quartet here due to the fact they were from the Calhoun, Georgia area.
Both of the tunes are very well known old country gospel standards.

  2. Thank you very much for the links.
    I don't why but I just love the low-fi sounding from such old records. :)
