Southern Faith Singers

Chicago's south-side Southern Faith Singers formed in 1947, but didn't commit a song to record until 1968, when they recorded "God Won't Let You Down" immediately after that initial effort. At that time, the unit included the Ray brothers Lloyd (lead), Reotha (vocals), Dennis (drums), and Michael (lead guitar). Second lead Reverend Ulysses Cox, tenor Archie Hubbard, baritone John Goodman, rhythm guitarist Willie Dixon, and bass guitarist Clyde Moses rounded out the sound. Their locally successful 1975 single "Who" for One-Way spawned an LP of the same name. The Southern Faith Singers went on to record several LPs for small Chicago labels into the 1980s.
