Coleman Brothers - The Coleman Brothers (CD)
Release Date: 11/08/11
This first ever CD release for this pioneering Gospel group brings together 30 inspiring examples of early Black Gospel music, complete with comprehensive liner notes from gospel expert Opal Louis Nations and many rare and unseen illustrations. The brothers were an important element in the transition of groups from the close harmony 'jubilee' style popular in the pre war years and the more uninhibited shouting style performances of post war groups. The Brothers also set up their own label to promote the cause and to spread the good word. The original 78s of these tracks are some of the rarest and change hands for substantial amounts of money.
