On Friday, July 22, 1955, the Shrine Auditorium in Los Angeles presented the "First Annual Mid-Summer Festival of Gospel Music" with Sam Cooke, Dorothy Love Coates, James Cleveland, Albertina Walker, Joe May, the Soul Stirrers, and the Pilgrim Travelers. It was the kind of astonishing line-up that put the shine on gospel's Golden Age, and Specialty Records taped it all. Some of the songs had been released with overdubbed drums, but this is the first issue of the entire, undubbed first half of the concert. Cooke never sounded better than he did with the Soul Stirrers that day, and Coates led her Gospel Harmonettes through a dizzying 18-minute medley. --Geoffrey Himes
