Monday Gospel Time?
The Soul Stirrers - Be With Me, Jesus
I know Sunday Gospel Time was yesterday, but sometimes I'm "feeling" something when I hear some gospel, and today's one of those days. The Soul Stirrers kept "Be With Me, Jesus" alive in its repertoire for many years, and when listening to its thrilling trade-off leads, be they from Sam Cooke and Sam Foster, Martin Wallace and Martin Jacox, or, as is the case in today's feature, Eddie Huffman and Rev. Luther Gamble, it's not hard to see why the song had such currency. Today's selection was a '70s outing by the group, and Huffman and Gamble bring home the goods.
