From the time the very first professional gospel quartet went on the road in 1910 through, roughly, the 1960s, the gospel singing quartet was a staple in the religious music empire. Author Terrell spend more than 20 years interviewing old-timers and gathering information on the Vaughans and the Stamps, the Blackwoods and Fowlers, and all the others who pioneered gospel quartet singing. In this far-ranging volume, these pioneers in the field come alive through the stories of those who knew them, heard them, and loved them -- first and foremost Terrell himself, who approaches gospel music with the attention of one who wants to preserve its traditions.
