CD Reviews

There's A Dead Cat On The Line!
Norman Nithman | Chicago, IL USA | 11/21/2001
(5 out of 5 stars)

"I found out about Rev. Gates because Steve Cushing would typically play one of Gates' sermons during his radio program's "gospel set." Gates was the most popular producer of the "singing and sermon" records issued during the 20's. Gates tended more towards the sermon side and they are quite bizarre to the contemporary ear to say the least! The most interesting tracks are the one I mentioned in the title of the review and "No Room in the Jailhouse." I would recommend starting with this disc first and working your way backwards through the series as there are a lot of reissues of the same sermons in his earlier releases. Gates' style is also fully developed on the later discs. You mother heart breakers! You midnight ramblers!"
