Subject: Playlists

Wilco suggested this thread, and I thought it was a great idea. He asked me to post the playlist for my gospel quartet, the Gospel Messengers. Like most of us, our playlist is way too long to post... we'll break Max's computer after the first half a dozen postings. So, I'll just do a couple dozen....

It would be really interesting to me to see what you do...

I'll do most of these with sources where we learned them:

How I Got Over - Fairfield Four
Oh, Why? - The Five Blind Boys
I've Tried - Chris Kenner
How Much Do I Owe Him? - The Radio Four
Brightly Beams - The Sensational Nightingales
Trouble In My Way - The Highway QC's
Crying In The Chapel - The Orioles
One Of These Days - Bells Of Joy
Every Knee Has Got To Bow - Fairfield Four
Roll Jordan, Roll -Fairfield Four
Burying Ground - Sensational Nightingales
Looking Back - Nat King Cole
He Looked Beyond My Faults - osmosis
Angel Band - everyone
Farther Along - Harmonizing Four
Only Believe - Harmonizing Four
Traveling Shoes - Mitchell's Christian Singers

And then several songs I wrote...

Give you an idea.... how about yours?

Come All you Fair and Tender Ladies
Once I Had a Sweetheart
Lass from the Low Country
Blow the Candles Out
I Gave my love an Apple
Carlton Weaver
Great Silkie
4 Marys

Dont Go to Sea Once More
Bonnie Ship the Diamond
We'll Rant/Roar
Farewell to Tarwaithe

Quiet Faith of Man
I'll Keep the Old Place
Moonshiner's Song
Roll on Buddy
Wagoner's Lad
John O'Dreams

Don't Let Me Be Lonely Tonite
Sweet Baby James
Close Your Eyes

Little Man You're Crying
Darktown Strutter's Ball
Sunny Side of the Street
Swt Georgia Brown
All of Me
Alabama Bound

Momma Told Me Not To Come was written by Randy Newman, C..

What a lot of great songs on these lists... Clinton, I can understand why you have to put a sampling on, like all of us. But the choice of the songs you choose to list tell a lot about your music, and you... for that matter.

Keep 'em coming..

Bullfrog...Miss the Mississippi and You Aint Goin' Nowhere are 2 of my favorites as well. I always hear EmmyLou doing Miss the Miss. in my head when I sing it, which is fortunate as she sounded a lot better than I do!
