WALK, TALK & SING

The popular sound of today's gospel music is also mastered by these songsters making them favorites whenever they appear in concert, at churches, or all-night singings.
Captured on this album of gospel and spiritual songs are the years of practice and experience which promise you hours of enjoyment and inspiration as you listen to the sound of THE FOGGY RIVER BOYS.

COMPATIBLE STEREO - This record is designed to play on either stereo or mono players and you should encounter no problems playing it on mono players manufactured since 1962; many are finding that it will also play on older mono players with or no tracking problems. If your record should skip be sure and check your needle and playing arm adjustment, as these are the usual causes of new records skipping or skating. Keep disc in cover when not in use and avoid handling playing surface.

Editor's note: I guess I don't really know the difference between barber shop quartets and this but I guess it's the solo singing. Anyhow, this sounds like that and not what I think of as gospel music despite the lyrics. Really, I don't know what I'm talking about so don't get all persnickety with me mister. Just play the record, shem.
PS...I took about 20 pictures of the back cover before I realized that it is naturally crooked. Taking a cocked picture of it didn't compensate for this noticeable blemish.
I came across this record on a few blogs and managed to track down some audio from WFMU's site. I would love to hear more from this honky-tonkin' caterwaulin' queen. Listen to the tracks below and I think you will too!
