45cat, The Gates had the only three releases on eddo, which was owned by a gentleman named Ed Sheahan. Shane (as he phonetically renamed himself) was a dee-jay on WRIX radio in Griffin, GA, which is Sister Lucille's home town. Ed has stayed 'in the business', and is now president and CEO of Shane Media Services out in Texas. Although Sister Lucille wrote today's selection, another name that kind of jumps out at you on the label is that of the publisher - 'Lowery Music', owned, I'm sure, by Atlanta music impresario Bill Lowery. It's all good!
Take a look at this late eighties performance from Sister & the Gates:
Amen! This wonderful woman has been putting the sunshine in all of our lives now for over sixty years. May God Bless and keep her, Brother Lewis, and all Pearly Gates past and present.
God is always on time!
