A friend at church last night brought some records that he got from his parents recently. Included in the stack of 6 or 7 albums was a couple of albums by the Songmasters from Memphis. I’ve heard of this group for a long time, always heard good things about Ms. Marcy, and I know Dale Shipley and Debra Talley both sang with the group at one time. The two albums are their apparent first album called “Heaven Came Down” and the second one was titled “For Sure” or something like that. Anyone out there know much about the group/albums? I borrowed the albums from him (thanks, JR!) but wasn’t able to listen to them last night as my daughter was quite sleepy when I got home, and the record player is hooked to my computer in her room. Since I’m not originally from Memphis and the Mid-South, I’m not up on a lot of the regional groups from the history. Please share anything you know about them here, I’m looking forward to listening to the LPs tonight.
