VARIOUS ARTISTS 'Take Me To The Water'

  • $37.50


The Dust-To-Digital label of Atlanta has another fascinating project here, in the form of a 96-page hardback book of rare photos from the collection of one Jim Linderman. There are several dozen sepia tone shots, mostly from the 1890-1950 period, of both white and black congregations in the act of single or multiple Baptismal immersions. There are a few pages of descriptive commentary, plus a 25-song CD that draws interesting material from both the black and white rural traditions. Some of the artists represented here with performances (mostly from the 1920s) are Dock Walsh, Washington Phillips, J.E. Mainer, Birmingham Jubilee Singers, Moses Mason, Frank Jenkins, Bill Boyd and the Carolina Tar Heels. A very impressive collection of photos and a very entertaining album’s worth of music .
