North Philadelphia Juniors* – I’m A Solider

Every once in a while when I find the time I very much enjoy listening to the Sinner’s Crossroads show on the wonderful WFMU radio station. It features “Scratchy vanity 45’s, pilfered field recordings, muddy, homemade congregational tapes and vintage commercial gospel throw-downs: a little preachin’, a little salvation and a little audio tomfoolery…”

It was listening to the last week that I came across this track, from 1950. I found it’s raw, fervent energy to be utterly spellbinding.
