Our Overview.

Acrobat. Acrobat has a significant catalogue of gospel recordings, and this addition to those offerings enables to make available recordings by some artists for whom we do not individual collections at this stage. It comprises material released on the celebrated Peacock label of Houston, Texas, which was a significant regional focus for the recording activity of some of the important and hugely popular gospel quartets who were highly active across the southern states during the post-war era. This great-value 110-track 4-CD features recordings by many of the artists who recorded for Peacock during this time – The Dixie Hummingbirds, The Sensational Nightingales, Sister Jessie Mae Renfro, Rev. Cleophus Robinson, Sister Josephine James, Otis Jackson, The Bells Of Joy, The Original Five Blind Boys Of Mississippi, The Spirit of Memphis Quartet, The Gospelaires of Dayton Ohio, The Brooklyn All Stars, The Alpha And Omega Singers, The Gospel Consolators, The Ever-Ready Gospel Singers, The Pilgrim Jubilee Singers and The Baltimore Echos. It’s an inspiring, uplifting and entertaining anthology which is a must for fans of this genre.
