...coming after while

I haven't been able to find much info on this record. It looks to me as if there were several groups using the name Sensational Travelers. And then there's Chuck Johnson...several men by that name around too, although I presume this is the same Chuck Johnson who recorded several 45's for small New Orleans labels.

Actually, that's lame, I really should know more about Chuck Johnson....did he own a label?....maybe Vision?....or Booker? [now that I think about it, I'm certain he owned at least one label called C&E]. Anyway, I associate the name with gospel, but I'm pretty sure it's not the same Chuck Johnson who sang with the Sensational Nightingales.

Co-writing credit goes to Leo Torregano. He's the brother of Joe Torregano, a well known clarinetist and major player in the brass band revival of the 70's and 80's.

This is one of those "gospel train" records that picks up steam as chugs along.

Hope ya'll enjoy....


  1. I thought I recently got a 45 from these guys, but realized it was the "Southern Travelers".....a lot of those gospel 45s have great playing and passion!

  2. Get on that big train, Excellent track. Thank you!
