Note: Alan Lomax: "slow march." The tape picks up an unidentified man (probably the announcer) speaking to an unidentified woman before the song: "[…] the record man up yonder wants any of these songs you'd like to sing if you'd like to sing any of them."
About the session: Recordings from the 56th Annual Convention of the United Sacred Harp Musical Association, held at Corinth Baptist Church, in Fyffe, Alabama. Leman Brown, chairman. The numbers following the songs refer to their page numbers in the Sacred Harp. Often the name listed as "lead" is not the leader of the song, but the person who has picked the selection.
