1939 Southern States Recording Trip
Merryville, Louisisana
Reverend J. R. Gipson, "Blind Gipson", was introduced by H. R. Weaver. He is a well-known Negro Baptist evangelist who supplements his sermons with the singing of "jazzed" spirituals, playing his own accompaniment on the piano. His loud chords topped by loud, husky singing, made an interesting combination, but one difficult to record. Some spirituals he sang without piano accompaniment. His wife and two neighbor children came with him to the Weaver home, where the recordings were made. They assisted him with some of the spirituals, and the children sang two game songs. Though Rev. Gipson makes his home in Louisiana he is pastor of the Antioch Baptist Church at Buna, Texas.
