1 - From Lomax's liner notes to "The Eastern Shores" LP on Prestige: "The Peerless Four [are] actually eight singers?The recording was made in a small church in Norfolk before an audience of young women, who applauded and spurred the singers on. The attempt was to recreate the excitement of a real performance in a church without the noise and interference that is inevitable in the actual situation." Editor's note: No information on the individual members of the Peerless Four are available in any of Lomax's notes. [Source: Album note]
