I was also looking back through my archives and it's shocking that i've been doing this blog for so long. I hope that everyone is still enjoying it as much as I enjoying doing it.
Roosevelt Graves, is another of my favorite gospel singers. Graves (And Brother) recorded some of the most innovative sounds of the era - sounds that would sound right at home at Hi or Stax in the 60's and 70's. This track "I'll Be Rested" features a driving guitar and vocals backed with a great proto-soul tambourine shake. it makes you wanna dance and pray all in the same motion. Graves produced a fair number of recordings in the 20's and 30's before vanishing in the 40's.
