Dailey & Vincent trace their arrangement to the Golden Gate Gospel Quartet, who recorded this familiar spiritual in 1946 and performed it in the 1948 Danny Kaye film, A Song Is Born. The Golden Gates, an all-Black ensemble, were organized in Norfolk, Virginia. They made their first Bluebird records in August of 1937, just four days after the Monroe Brothers’ fourth session in Charlotte, NC. Even in segregation days, they often shared stages with leading white gospel groups. Their syncopated style, hugely popular and influential, came to Dailey & Vincent’s attention through Doyle Lawson.
