An Unfinished Task - The Chism Family

Help Me
The Chism Family
An Unfinished Task
RCM Sound Studio - Winchester, Kentucky
SLP-1012
1975

Terrific 70s snapshot cover with credit given on the back cover to a "Hair Stylist". I kid you not. This is the first time I've seen a hair stylist given credit on any album, let alone a private press gospel album.

There are some interesting tracks on this country gospel recording. The recording an unrefined blend of unusual chorus treatments, down home singing by Mother Chism nicely mixed with some tinkling guitar work and the unmistakable sound of an upright piano. This was a fun record find.
