The Mississippi Recording Inc. return with another collection of rare and hard-to-find recordings. This time around it's a compilation of gospel cuts salvaged from the archives of Waymon 'Gusman' Jones's Gusman Record Shop. After opting out of the family farming tradition and abandoning his rural Georgia roots Waymon 'Gusman' Jones went on to open a store, immersing himself in gospel music, recording and issuing numerous sides by the likes of The Abraham Brothers, Lightly Singers of Estill, White Family Of Savannah and Piney Grove Spiritual Singers among many others. This introduction compiles tracks recorded between 1961 - 1978 and encompasses the spirit and energy of rural Georgia's gospel scene at the time. These go from mild blues-inspired spirituals of a peaceful nature (White Family of Savannah's 'I've been In the Storm So Long' and Brother Theotis Taylor's 'Somebody's Gone') to all-out hysterical, evangelical stuff like The Abraham Brothers 'Spirit Of The Lord'. All these tracks are worthy outings composed at that point in time where performance was everything and recordings sounded warm and real. Excellent stuff.

Ian Quann said:Mississippi records are the business, business lady! It made my year when they released the lomax quintology of recordings from the deep south on lovely vinyl last year. Ive just noticed though that the reviews for "in the storm...' and 'The rain dont fall" are under the wrong LPs on the shop site!
