This two cd set covers the sound of California gospel recordings during the latter part of the golden decade.  Compiled by Per "Slim" Notini (STOCKHOLM SLIM on Magic Sam's West Side Soul release) this set features the efforts of BROTHER HENDERSON and his group of labels. Henderson started his musical life as BIG DUKE HENDERSON in the late 40's recording in a style similar to Wynonie Harris but converted in the 50's and ran these labels as well as running the All Gospel Record Shop and hosting radio programs on KGFJ (home of Magnificent Montague) and XERB (home to Wolfman Jack).  The labels covered most of the styles popular in gospel music at the time from hard quartet styled groups through the earlier "jubilee" style to sermons, choirs and some wonderful down home sacred steel sounds from REV. LONNIE FARRIS.  The recordings have a raw vitality with both live & studio productions released and some amazing instrumentation from ragged electric guitars to beautifully harmonized backround vocals.........
