It has been over two months since the last sghistory.com retro spotlight. I was covering the time period in Southern Gospel music from 1955 to 1965. In this week’s edition of the retro spotlight, I wanted to take a look at the 1960 album from the Speer Family titled The Singing Speers.
Skylite Records was the dominant Gospel music record label during this time period. The Speer Family was also one of the biggest Gospel groups touring at this era, next to the Statesmen and the Blackwood Brothers. Dad (GT) and Mom (Lena) Speer were still a major part of the group during this recording. They were joined by Brock, Ben and Ginger Smith.
Listen to sound bytes from the Speer Family’s 1960 Skylite Records album The Singing Speers. Enjoy this listen of classic Southern Gospel music!
