all smyles

The Smylie Family

s/t
Ludwig Sound #313
Spring, TX

From the Back Cover:

“It is with pleasure that I find myself writing this short note and recalling the last twenty or more years that I have had the privilege of knowing the Smylies. In those days together, we sang and ministered to the people in street services at the courthouse square, in the jails, and in the various churches in and around Houston and in the Sunday night radio broadcast of the Sky Pilot. And now we have done it again by recording this album which combines a little nostalgia and something new. Sammy & June’s youngest son, Johnny, now a young man, adds a touch of young new sounds which blend so well with the traditional.”
