The Spiritualaires CD contains recordings of a gospel quartet group from Hurtsboro, Alabama.

Product Detail:

The Spiritualaires of Hurtsboro, Alabama are one of the last still active gospel quartets with origins in Gospel's Golden Age of the 1950s. Weaving together influences from the blues and country & western, the Spiritualaires over the years have remained faithful to their ever distinct vet traditional sound. Drawn from recent studio recordings and live radio broadcasts, Singing Songs of Praise reveal the Spiritualaires as both a fine harmony quartet and a unique guitar driven ensemble. What a treat it is to have after almost six decades together the debut recording of the Spiritualaires of Hurtsboro, Alabama.
