The Key To The Kingdom


Washington Phillips was one of the most intriguing and delightful figures in American music history. His style was completely unique, both in his warm plaintive singing and his use of zither for accompaniment. His treatment of early religious material is poignant and expressive and his zither playing backup is absolutely captivating. His complete output of 16 selections is presented here with brand new remastering that heightens all the irresistible characteristics of his performances. Included also are four bonus tracks of similarly touching early religious music by Mamie and A.C. Forehand.
