:: Recording Notes ::
0 - Alan Lomax: "dist[ortion]" Joyce Smith: "You people will never know what it's meant to me [?] coming and singing your hearts out for me. Not only for me, but for everybody. All of us has worked hard. You know this is something we can all enjoy. A lot of times a preacher gets and preach and it don't seem like it has any effect on anybody, but you let a band of God's children get together and get singing, people's gonna feel it. There's nothing in the world any prettier than singing to me? [more]" Unidentified man responds: "We enjoyed that very much, Miss Joyce. That's worth a big sermon or a big singin'."
