BROTHER THEOTIS TAYLOR - s/t cassette
"Brother Theotis Taylor is a 92-year-old spiritual singer and piano player known throughout South Georgia and beyond for his powerful voice and heavenly falsetto. His music took him from his home in Fitzgerald, Georgia, to the stage with Sam Cooke and the Soul Stirrers, to Harlem’s Apollo, and even to Carnegie Hall. For much of his life, Brother Taylor kept a reel-to-reel recorder atop his piano at home and recorded himself on his DIY home setup only when he was inspired by a higher power, often fasting and praying for days before recording. Many of these intimate home recordings were digitized in 2020 and are being heard for the first time with this release.
Casssette version includes six more songs that do not appear on the LP version, and includes a download card for a digital version of the music, album art and liner notes! 1 hour playing time."
