Note: Alan Lomax: "wonderful words, folk hymn." These hymns [Ragan and Blooming Youth] have the same number because they are on the same page of The Sacred Harp. An unidentified man (probably the announcer) speaks to an unidentified woman: "The record man wants to get it on the record."
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.
