Icon Public Domain.jpg Track 51: Bascom Lamar Lunsford - Dry Bones   Brunswick 231; Recorded in Ashland, Kentucky,  February 1928


No image of record label available. Neither anthology booklet assigns authorship, nor does www.78discography.com.


The Where Dead Voices Gather blog quotes Lunsford as saying:

The title of this spiritual is "Dry Bones." It was known in our section after the visiting of a great Negro preacher who came to that section, was a powerful pulpit orator and a devoted man, and his name was Romney. And he preached a sermon on the "dry bones of the valley." I first heard this sung by Fletcher Rhymer in the community near Alexander in Buncombe County, North Carolina.


This seems to be a reasonably good basis for treating this composition as public domain.
