Mississippi and Texas Church Recordings 1948

In early February 1948, a few days after the death of his father, John A. Lomax, Alan Lomax visited three Southern Black Baptist churches — the True Light Baptist Church in Dallas, Texas; the Rose Hill Baptist Church in Greenville, Mississippi; and the Friendly Will Baptist Church in Austin, Texas — where he recorded sermons, hymns, and spirituals. Of these, only one hymn has been released commercially.
