>Country Spirituals


Here’s an excellent compilation of gospel songs performed by “guitar evangelists”, Blues songsters and gospel singers, all recorded by the great folklorist Dr. Harry Oster in the sixites….

It features Snook Eaglins, Reverend Pearly Brown, Butch Cage and Willie Thomas, Robert Pete  Williams, among others great performers…
Go to Wirz discography to see all the  recordings of Dr Harry Oster. To me, he’s one of the most important american folklorist of this century, along with Alan Lomax.
