Reseña de álbum

When this fine little a cappella vocal harmony group from Kinston, NC made their first recordings in August 1934, they were still using their original billing, with their manager's surname tacked on for good measure. Working under pressure, Mitchell's New Four Singers cut 16 master takes in an exacting marathon rehearsal and recording session that lasted a full 18 hours. Among the first songs they chose to record was "Them Bones," a wonderful set of variations on the old favorite "Dry Bones."

Clearly the song had significance for them as it is one of the few that they recorded more than once.

Now billed as Mitchell's Christian Singers, the group would ultimately produce some 80 recordings, all of which have been reissued by Document.

Although this excellent vocal harmony group cut more than 80 sides during the years 1934-1940, none of the members opted...
