Bells of Joy

Second Time Around

This style of gospel is reminiscent of the Soul Stirrers, Dixie Hummingbirds and The Pilgrim Travelers. By 1951, the Bells recorded for Don Robey's Duke/Peacock label. Their million-seller single, "Let's Talk About Jesus" went straight to the top ten R&B Billboard charts. At that time, The Bells went on to record for Wildcat Records, Chess/Checker and Nashboro Records.
