Wynona signed to Art Rupe's Specialty Records in 1949 as a gospel artist, and issued ten records in that style until 1954, after which she turned to R&B. She died in 1976. The Turks can be heard backing Wynona on this one, a 1970s reissue. The 1970s saw the first real flood of official, and unofficial pressings of deleted records in Britain, back then they were often referred to as 'Golden Oldies' or 'Revived 45s'. The whole culture around collecting was, more often than not, informed by jokey 'Teddy Boy' imagery, with cartoons of slavering, bequifed Ted's holding teetering piles of Bill Haley 78s. It wasn't until a quarter of a century later that reissue packaging and related material achieved the status of archival seriousness now evident on many reissue CD's.
