The Original Oak Ridge Boys at Their Very Best!

"This collection of southern gospel classics is a re-release of the Oak Ridge Boys' "On The Sunny Banks" project, recorded in the early 1960's, well before the group's cross-over into country music. Personnel at the time these tracks were laid down included the great Smitty Gatlin (lead), Willie Wynn (tenor), William Lee Golden (baritone), Herman Harper (bass) and Tommy Fairchild (piano).

The group had been known as the Oak Ridge Boys for a relatively short period of time when these songs were released. Smitty Gatlin purchased the name "Oak Ridge Quartet" from the legendary Wally Fowler in the late 1950's, then changed it to reflect the new lineup. As fans of Southern Gospel know, Willie Wynn was one of the industry's leading tenor singers, and the late Herman Harper went on to create the premier talent management agency that still bears his name. Incidentally, contemporary Oaks fans may be interested to know that this project marked William Lee Golden's debut with the group, resulting in one of the longest tenures in either gospel or country music.

This CD contains positively stellar material from some of the greatest writers in southern gospel -- Dottie Rambo, Gov. Jimmie Davis, and Smitty Gatlin himself, performing his very own "When I Lay My Burdens Down Someday". This one is solid gold. Don't miss it!"
