In 1961, ethnomusicologist Harry Oster recorded the itinerant preacher and street singer Reverend Pearly Brown (1915–1986) in Macon, Georgia. Blind from birth, Brown had a musical style that was influenced by recordings and music of Blind Willie Johnson. His repertory was composed of gospel, blues, country, and spirituals, which he sometimes called “slave songs.” This collection reissues the original 1961 recording and closes with four tracks recorded by Arhoolie founder Chris Strachwitz in 1974.
