Legends Of Gospel Series: Dragnet For Jesus
Released: Jan 1992
Label: Fantasy Records
The music of Sister Wynonna Carr had so many different elements it's not enough to call it traditional gospel music. You can hear bits of jump blues, jazz and traditional folk in her stirring, stylish voice. These recordings from the early 1950s throw in pop culture references (Dragnet, baseball), but there's not a trivial note here.
