I bought this entire recording without, unfortunately, previewing it or checking to see just who Bryce Bond was (seems he was a reporter turned parapsychology media guru). Bond's recitation of Johnson's poems plays for all the world like a radio soap commercial of the '50's, with exactly the same insipid wistful turn at the end of every single phrase, and stained with a sonorrhoeal dribble of a piano accompaniment right out of a Palmolive ad spot of the time...The cultural specificity and pride with which Johnson invested his piece is here totally washed away: Pat Boone's milquetoast counterfeit of Little Richard's "Tutti Frutti" had more soul & spirit than this "performance"--Thumbs down!

I hope to not offend anyone. This recording sounds like a white man trying to read a script that needs to be read by a black man. The reader did not take his time reading. There is NO feeling in his reading. He is not telling the story properly. There is NO proper vocal inflection. Lastly, what happened to the choir?

I have not heard this performance. But for fans of God's Trombones, it's hard to match the record by Fred Waring and his Pennsylvanians, Decca LP #DL8047, copyright 1953.

This was not exactly what I thought it would be. I thought it would be preformed by Fred Warren and the Pennsylvanias Choir.
Additionally, I was sent and charged for two copies and I only wanted one. Currently, trying to get the label to return one of the copies. Please advise.
