Artist: Golden Gate Quartet

Based upon their The Preacher And The Bear, cut for Bluebird in '37 and RCA in '41. Reissued on lp Praise The Lord And Pass The Ammunition (Songs of WW I & II) and on the CBS gospel compilation The Gospel Sound - The John Hammond Collection. John Hammond Sr. discovered this outstanding spiritual quartet from Virginia. Stalin wasn't stalling where? In the Russian winter, like the Fuhrer and his vermin during the siege of Stalingrad. This was not the only engaged statement of the GGQ; they also cut a No Segregation In Heaven ('42).
