THE MELODY MEN

"MY HEAVY BURDENS HAVE ROLLED AWAY"

MUSICS OF ALABAMA:

A COMPILATION

The Melody Men are led by Al Malone, a resident of Lebanon, Alabama. The group has been singing together since 1994, performing small concerts and making appearances in area churches and schools. The Melody Men are: Al Malone, Milford Cushen, Dennis George (guitar), and F.L. Pierce. Jimi Hall performs the piano accompaniment on this piece.

The Melody Men excel in four-part harmony singing in the fashion of old-style Southern Gospel groups. Most of the group's members were brought up on shape-note gospel convention singing on Sand Mountain, a geographic area in Northeastern Alabama.

The Melody Men show the best characteristics typical of Southern Gospel such as the high tenor and the low bass, pushing to the extreme the range of vocal harmony. Instrumentation used is a minimum of electric guitar and electric keyboard..
