  1. For those who like the Sacred Harp Singing tradition (as heard in Alabama and Georgia for over years), County Records second album devoted to this little-heard style features a generous helping of 19 religious songs by a number of different groups that recorded in the late s. This will complement a full album.
  2. Listening to the shape-note singing recorded -- mostly in the '20s and '30s -- on Religion Is a Fortune: Sacred Harp Singing is a lot like listening to The Anthology of American Folk provquozalylozoo.tatergecilmafanlabeahercornbusti.co sounds of male and female voices, rising and falling along a four-note scale, sound primitive, like something snatched from an earlier time in American history.8/
  3. More rare old 78s, profiling the arcane art of shape-note, or sacred harp, gospel singing, an unusal and distinctive American style. These are all artists from the s and '30s that very, very few people have ever heard of, vocal groups such as the Fa-So-La Singers, Dye's Sacred Harp Singers, Daniels-Deason Sacred Harp Singers, Lee Wells Sacred Harp Singers and others/5(3).
