Shaw Singers: Yesterday and Today

‘Nuther really cool homemade gospel rarity from down south. What makes this one especially interesting is that one side consists of very crude almost home-recorded sounding piano and vocal duets, while the other is slightly more produced and features a backing band. I’m assuming this split is referenced in the “Yesterday and Today” title. Both sides have a very low-key earthy charm to them though. One of those albums that really seems to capture a few moments from a long gone time and place very candidly and beautifully.
