Dale Rose Lyr Add: Hallelujah Side (17) RE: Lyr Add: Hallelujah Side 21 Oct 00


I tried to find a music source among my song books, but could not find it. Here is the next best thing though, a Real Audio file of Hallelujah Side. I was a bit lazy, so rather than dig out the old Ernest Stoneman LP, I took one of those nice shiny CDs and came up with a totally different version by the Tindley Quaker City Gospel Singers. I am sure that Stewie will agree that it is just about as good a choice as the Ernest Stoneman. Members of the group were D. C. Wright, Albert T. Tindley, Thomas Brown, Harvey Mason, and Haywood Purnell. It is from the Roots N' Blues The Retrospective, Columbia 47911, 1992, recorded March 8, 1932 and was previously unissued. After you hear it, you will wonder why the experts at Columbia did not see fit to release it.

From the notes by Lawrence Cohn: It is assumed that the Tindley Quaker City Gospel Singers took their name from the founder of Philadelphia's Tindley Methodist Church, composer C. H. Tindley. (This is the same church where Bessie Smith was laid to rest.)

I have a bluegrass version by the Country Gentlemen as well ~~ somewhere.
