O’s Notes: Legendary producer Joel Dorn suggests in the brief liner notes that this music is so powerful, that in listening, you’ll create your own liner notes. Gospel music is a key ingredient in the foundation of Black American music, hence American popular music. Dorn is right; by the time you reach track #3, “Oh Mary, Don’t You Weep” by The Swan Silvertones, you will make the connections. Listen to the harmonizing and rich bass lead from The Harmonizing Four on “The Motherless Child”, The Violinaires, and The Staple Singers
