Remind Me Dear Lord - The Oakley Family

Remind Me Dear Lord
On The Sunny Banks
The Oakley Family Sings
Remind Me Dear Lord
Queen City Album - Cincinnati, Ohio

Here is a fun gospel album. The Oakley Family worked out of Brookville, Indiana.

The musicians, Mary Joe Johnson, Larry Combs, Joel Stout and Bill Phelps offer up unique sounds and interesting flourishes. I'm not sure they are studio musicians. But I'm guessing it might be possible for the music sounds made up on the spot to back the vocals.

  1. A fine first lp by these well-schooled kids. Dig the enunciation of "remahned me" for example. "On the Sunny Banks" is my favorite here. Later the girls loosened up and really put the soul in the bowl on subsequent lps.
