Editor's note: these grand gals sure could belt out the gospel for Jesus. As of 2002 some form of The Burns Trio was still performing according to this church bulletin. I don't know if it was the same line up shown on the LP cover or a second generation kind of deal but if it was the original then these grand gals must be grand grand grand gals by now.
A side note to my scant research on this record: Rev. Ralph Sexton, Sr., pictured with the gals, was known as a fiery public preacher and apparently in his early 20s he published a book called "Church Asses" which is up for sale on eBay. It's only $2.50! They were some of his favorite "clean" singers so maybe you can make him one of your "grittier" preachers.
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!
