Cincinnati, Ohio, 1955-1985
Is this the same gospel group that had a 45 released by J&W Records out of Cleveland ("The Blood") ?? John Smith; UK
- Willie C. Durr is the writer of the J&W flip side. - William Durer is member of the GH on Dee-Jay. Durr & Durer are likely the same man.I assume that both GH releases are from the same Cleveland group.
My father and uncle were both members of the Golden Harmonizers and I remember both those songs very well. They are indeed the same group that record The Blood for J&W Records. It was my Uncle John who sang lead on that song
Hello, I remember this group very well, the group is actually still singing in churches, that is my father Oatha Lee Taylor second on the left with the glasses on,he sung bass for the group, he is standing next to my Godfather Eddie Rodgers, I too remember these songs. Mathus Lee Taylor
@JRS, I am so honored that you recongize the music and musicians of this great group. My dad is (he was called to rest in 2009), John Smith and his brother is Andrew. I never thought I would go online and see my daddy let alone someone that appreciated their contribution to gospel music in the great city of Cleveland, Ohio. Our birthday, me and my dad is tomorrow and this is great, just great...THANK YOU
