Music from the South, Vol. 8: Young Songsters

Recorded in 1954, this album presents a younger generation of gospel singers from Alabama, Louisiana, and Mississippi. These performances represent a musical style based in the traditions heard on Volumes 6 and 7 of this series, but with clear movement toward a more polished urban gospel sound.
