CRYING IN THE CHAPEL

Latest update on 22/05/2014

Artist: Darrell Glenn
Author: Artie Glenn
Label: Valley
Year: 1953

Title track country gospel lp. Written by his father. Melody, rhythm and timing as in gospel Soldier Of The Cross, as cut by The Zion Travelers for Doo Tone. It also leans against In The Chapel In The Moonlight (see there), musically and lyrically; or are the possibilities to characterize a chapel (by day or by night) as per definition limited?

Elvis turned it into pure gospel. He cut it during an all-gospel session, late at night as always, with sleepy sounding Jordanaires in the background.
