Sallie Martin (1895-1988) was known as "the mother of gospel music" for having spread the revolutionary new compositions of Thomas A. Dorsey, the genre's "father," across the United States. She later formed her own group, in which daughter Cora Martin's sophisticated vocal stylings served as a perfect foil to Sallie's more straightforward approach. This long-overdue collection of 29 tracks made between 1950 and 1952, 23 of them previously unissued, not only presents the Sallie Martin Singers in their prime (with the great Brother Joe May guesting on six selections), but contains Cora's rare and compelling solo recordings.
