Get Right – Goodbye Babylon

Well friends, Brother Randy made mention a day or two back of the amazing collection of early gospel and sacred music ‘goodbye babylon’ from the dust to digital folks. Seemed only right that we should take today to share a little of that with you. It’s a big ol’ box now, five whole discs, it’s a lot to take in but it is just overflowing with wonderful music. There’s names you’ll know, The Carter Family, Blind Willie McTell, Sister Rosetta and a lot more you ain’t. Plenty of songs you’ll know as well, be that in different versions. Now, much as it’s a scratchy, dusty ol’ museum piece, a long forgotten old box of stuff from up in the attic takin’ you back best part of 80 years, at the same time the simple human truth in them voices sound like it was just this past week, you get me? So here’s a tiny little slice of it, trying to choose from about 120 tunes is quite a task so these is just pretty random. Thought we’d take in Brother Claude Ely though, if y’all can’t get with that now – well, then we’ll just keep on a prayin’ for you to walk right.

Brother Claude Ely – There Ain’t No Grave

Reverend Graves – Woke up This Morning

Cotton Top Mountain Sanctified Singers – I Want Two wings To Veil My Face

Silver Leaf Quartette – Daniel Saw The Stone
