For those not, Spence was an old tyme Bahamian folk/ragtimey bluesman, with creole/patois/ chanting volcals interlaced with lots of rrrrrrrooooolllllliiinnnggg R's and strange guturall/throaty percussion sounds. Most of the songs are traditional spiritual numbers with some of his orginal comps. Definetley worth checkin for a change of pace and acoustic stylings.
