Inaccuracies  Mar 30, 2007
The book is intersesting however there are several inaccuracies which suprised me. Dr Boyer was there during the "Golden Age of Gospel" Photo personnel are also incorrect. One lists the Caravans when it's really the Gospel Harmonettes. William Bobo of the Dixie Hummingbirds was listed as playing the guitar when indeed it is Howard Carroll. Cissy Houston and the Drinkard Singers were in Newark, New Jersey not Detroit. I am a great fan of the Boyer Brothers and still play their recordings, however we must be careful with our History.
