While browsing Amazon.com for various SG artists, I came across a series of mp3 albums called “Gospel Masters.” Many of the albums were of Black gospel artists, but there are downloads for The Statesmen (seemingly Jack Toney era), Hovie Lister and the Statesmen (apparently with Jake Hess), several from The Oak Ridge Boys (w/ Smitty Gatlin), The Prophets, and JD Sumner and the Stamps. I listened to a few of the available clips. The quality is pretty poor, some even still have the cracks and pops of the vinyl still in them, but it is still intriguing to find these classic recordings available digitally. Anyone out there have some experience with these digital albums?
