I Got Two Wings
Incidents And Anecdotes of The Two-Winged Preacher And Electric Guitar Evangelist Elder Utah Smith "Despite waxing three of the hottest electric guitar records of the pre-rock and roll years, almost nothing has been known about the life of the sanctified electric guitar preacher Elder Utah Smith. Until now. African-American music scholar Lynn Abbott's years of research has produced a remarkable biographical study finally shining a light onto the preaching, healing and guitar playing ministry of this path breaking performer, one whose revivals and appearances were as well known and anticipated in his time as any other sacred or secular musician or performer. I Got Two Wings firmly places Utah Smith within the Church of God of Christ tradition along with such COGIC contemporaries as Sister Rosetta Tharpe, Elder Curry and the Rev F W McGee. Filled with fascinating anecdotes and first hand remembrances and testimonies, I Got Two Wings also features many rare and unpublished photographs and an 18-track CD produced by CaseQuarter's Kevin Nutt. The CD includes 5 previously unknown Utah Smith songs along with relevant performances by Tharpe, Curry, McGee and two rocking, sanctified performances by Utah Smith's daughter, Sister Sarah James and the Sanctified Six." 128-page perfect bound softcover book and 18-track CD sealed in pouch inside back cover.
