In the late 1950s, The Gospelaires of Dayton, Ohio, moved up to become one of the most exciting gospel quartets of the 1960s. They followed in the footsteps of the Five Blind Boys of Mississippi and the Dixie Hummingbirds, who were all on the famous Peacock label.
Several best selling records propelled the Gospelaires into touring nationally, along with the elite of hard gospel groups, such as the Mighty Clouds of Joy and the Violinaires. The Gospelaires performed at the most prestigious venues, such as the Apollo Theater, where they appeared with illuminaries like James Cleveland and the Staple Singers. They also visited Europe.
This is the first CD compilation of the Gospelaires' early recordings. CD-notes written by Robert Marovich, editor of the Journal of Gospel Music and author of "A City Called Heaven - Chicago and the Birth of Gospel Music".
