Wilder Evangelistic Party

Sister Wilder with Caroline and Jimmie (Wilder Evangelistic Party 1001), 1959  
"The World Needs Jesus"
 
"Keep Traveling On"

Sister E. Wilder does some country gospel here. The songs would sound better if Sister Wilder had a better singing voice, too nasal in my opinion. I couldn't find any information on neither Wilder nor on her Wilder Evangelistic Party from Little Rock. Pressed by Southern Plastics, this record was released in 1959.

Publisher on both sides was Singing River Publishing of Biloxi, Mississippi. The company was a defendant in a lawsuit about unpaid royalties of the song "Tell Him No," written by Travis Pritchett. Reported by Billboard on June 13, 1960: Artists Sue on Royalties
