Another from the Blue Ridge Quartet

This is an early release by the Blue Ridge Quartet on the Gotham label. As some of you may know, Gotham has numerous black gospel releases. They also had a country/white gospel series as well. This one dates from about 1951. The Blue Ridge started on Decca in 1950, then moved to Gotham in 1950-51, putting out a total of 18 singles on the label. This is my favorite era of the Blue Ridge Quartet and I will be posting more from them over time. There was a CD reissue of several of their sides, including others, on the Gotham 400 series. You can find it here: 

This is one of the very few CD collections of obscure white gospel quartet music.
