1 - Shouts and spirituals performed by the Georgia Sea Island Singers (known as the Spiritual Singers of Coastal Georgia at the time), recorded at St. Simons Island, off the coast of Brunswick, Georgia. Hobart Smith, the multi-instrumentalist from Saltville, Virginia, and Ed Young, the Como, Mississippi, fife player, accompany the group on several numbers. This session was most likely practice for the "Music of Williamsburg" film shot at the end of the month, and for which Lomax served as music supervisor (see session Williamsburg 4/60).
