Note: Alan Lomax: "He's a Chicago man who told me he hates the old time emotional style. Last 3 minutes are pretty good. Theme: Paul in Philippi prison. 'I don't care what you say, singing Zion's songs will disturb heaven.'"
About the session: Spirituals and preaching at a service of the Great Harvest Missionary Baptist Church, at their temporary home at the New Browns Chapel in Memphis. According to the announcement made by the "narrator" in the middle of T904.1, the congregation choir is under the direction of Mrs. Lulabelle Johnson. Other credits she gives, including her own, are indecipherable.
