NEW SEALED 2 CD set of essential Jubilee Gospel Goodness!

The Swan Silvertones, one of the most revered and respected Gospel vocal groups of all time, a Gospel group that featured the extraordinary voice of the insanely talented Reverend Claude Jeter. His featured sweeping cadenzas and spellbinding mellisma captured the hearts and souls of church folk for over half a century. They are simply one of the best groups to have ever sng gospel, or put more succinctly, to have ever sung, period! This double disc collects all their earliest sides and greatest recordings. It is breathtaking and it is clear how much Jeter's singing style influenced future generations of soul singers. You can clearly hear the echoes of his singing in the recordings of many artists including Bobby Womack, Wilson Pickett, Donnie Elbert and David Ruffin and indeed early Temptations. This is a unique album which includes many recordings that have never been released on CD. From originals to traditional hymns, this collection is fierce, fiery, and brilliant throughout. No one matches Jeter's far-reaching voice. Songs like "I Done Made It Up In My Mind" and "All Aboard" end just as it sounds like they're about to explode in an ecstatic frenzy. That control, that ability to bring a song to its near dissolution then back away, is in full effect on nearly every song here, with the exception of the slow numbers such as "I'm Tired" and "Will the Circle Be Unbroken." And those just might have you weeping if you're not careful. This is a very powerful and much needed selection of this great group's 78 RPM recordings. Oh, happy day! –Mike McGonigal
