Crusade LP 158-02
Many of my best gospel finds are on the Crusade Label. Artists who recorded on Crusade were inventive. The cover art, in a budget way, is also typically interesting. Note the kitchen stool used as a prop on the cover.
This recording features what may have been a typical country gospel vocal group, but the engineer, Ray Harris, added a lot of reverb which pushes the vocals back as if they group was singing from the next room. This doesn't seem like a good idea, but the technique actually adds atmosphere. It's almost like you are listening to the group play at a drive-in movie theater through one of those window speakers.
The Goodwin Trio worked out of Ottumwa, Iowa and this was their fourth album. Dave Goodwin wrote the sample track posted above.
