STAND BY ME FATHER * THE SOUL STIRRERS * SAR 101 * USA
The Sar label certainly hit the ground running with their firs release both sides of this record of the very finest Soul/Gospel class. Written by Sam Cooke and his business partner J. W. 'Alex' Alexandra - one time Pilgrim Traveler - Stand By Me Father is a beautiful Gospel ballad with Johnny Taylor singing - almost just talking at times - lead and the most minimal musical and vocal backing.
