July 2014

This month's download is by the Golden Stars Quintet. There were two 45's released by this group on Hoyt Sullivan's Sullivan Records label. This is the more rare one of the two, which was not featured on the beautiful CD compilation "South Carolina Gospel" (Gospel Friend CD PN-1506). The Golden Stars had several lead singers and Norris Turner is featured on the song that's offered here. On the reverse it's Alphonso Devlin. There's some confusion about the Sullivan Records label and several years have been mentioned for its releases, ranging from the late 1950's to the late 1960's. At this point it seems likely that all recordings for Sullivan were made and released between 1957 and 1959. A complete Sullivan Records discography (five releases only) can be found here.

Enjoy!
