CJ Johnson is one serious well keep secret....back in 2003 I picked up a label comp. of Savoy's gospel artist and he had a song titled "You better Run
' HOLY COW. This song is crazy...I'm mean he howls so hard his voice goes raspy...the congregationís foot stomping is so loud it serves as the bass (you may need the LP to hear)..oh and the soul clapping throughout the song dares you to remain in your chair......PURE GOLD!!!!!!!!

5 years later I found the complete lp on Savoy, I consider this lp a relic. Dumb hard to find.

A great gospel group that I have discovered recently - the Pilgrim Travelers. They were active from the late 40's to 1960 or so - Lou Rawls was part of the band for a few years, although not on their best-known recordings. But they've got a GREAT, barbershop/doo-wop type sound. Love that stuff.

Love the Pilgrim Travelers. You would also love the Sensational Nightingales on Peacock. Try their fine single of "At The Meeting" and "It's Gonna Rain". Great soulful, doo-wopish, funky grooves.

Vocalion race series 78. This came out in 1931, I believe, so there can't be very many copies. This is an E+ besides a small warp. Plays incredible! I just found it yesterday!

Their entry in Blues & Gospel Records 1890-1943 (Godrich & Dixon, 1997) lists it as the last recording they made on Monday 16 Nov 1930, Atlanta, Georgia. Cut five sessions starting 12 November 1928 in Birmingham, Ala.

Nice find Hood!! You might think these would show up around here every now and then since it was recorded in Birmingham and Bessemer is only about 35 miles away from me but I've never seen one. Sweet!

Thanks Ben and Hartwise!

As Ben said, these were recorded in Atlanta. Their first sessions were the Birmingham ones.
They also recorded a few tracks in between but the location is unknown. I have a pretty good guess but I'm unsure.
The Birmingham sessions have matrix's that start with either BIRM or B.
The Atlanta matrix's start with ATL.
The unknown have matrix's that begin with NO, so I'd assume the obvious big city that's close by.... New Orleans but that's just a guess.
My copy does contain the last tracks they recorded, though Vocalion issued 1 more record of the group. That last record had one track from a Birmingham session and one from the unknown (NO) session. I'm curious where the three unissued tracks were recorded but I haven't been able to find that out anywhere. Any idea Ben?

Yeah Hartwise, I'd have bet that you'd at least seen a beater copy or two around there! I know the records I hit here seem to always have some Kentucky artists in the mix. Especially the good 20s-30s lots.....always 1 or so with a Ky. connection. Good luck in the hunt!
