Subject: RE: Help: Jesus on the main line
According to Blues and Gospel Records 1890-1943, 4th ed. (Oxford, 1997), "Jesus On the Main Line" (sung by (Mrs) Lillie Knox) and "Jesus On De Main Line Too" (sung by Plantation Echoes) were recorded by the Library of Congress, both in 1937. These seem to be the earliest recordngs.
