  • Nine reel to reel recordings. Reel T86-215 has very poor sound quality -- nearly inaudible. Recordings of two concerts (9/14/1985 in Leesburg on T86-214 through T86-216; and 9/15/1985 in Orlando -- at the Frontline Outreach Building -- on T85-150 through T85 -154) featuring several gospel music groups from Florida and elsewhere: Ponder Singers (Jax.); Cisrow Gospel Allstars (Millville, NJ); Washington Singers (Cocoa); Goldenaires and the Spiritualettes (Orlando); Master Keys and the Dixie Hummingbirds (Philadelphia, PA); and the Dixie Jubilees (Jax).
