King Britt Presents Sister Gertrude Morgan
Sister Gertrude Morgan (1900-1980) was a painter, singer, and self-proclaimed "bride of Christ" whose visually explosive folk art is celebrated worldwide. But her one album, made in New Orleans in the 1960s, is one of black gospel music's secret relics. Those recordings were unearthed and a limited number of copies were released to unanimous and widespread critical acclaim in 2003. the playahs at ropeadope has procured the master rights and enlisted internationally acclaimed DJ and Producer King Britt to create an entirely new work of art, putting musical tracks behind the Sister's previously unaccompanied vocals. In the studio for over 12 months working on this project, King hired a crew of stellar musicians to create the ultimate backing band and produce one of 2005's most promising releases. - TK
