Any old timers that remember the green book remembe Song #1? I think the title was "Hail Him" or something similar. That song was good old Southern church Rock and Roller!!'
Matter of fact I remember my mother saying, and this was in the sixties, that they reallly didn't play it that much because it sounded to much like gospel music! So how the heck did it get in the book in the first place?? Oh well, that was "semi-nice trip" down memory lane (considering the circumstances) remembering those old tunes
Any one remember "Take Sides with Jehovah"? I think that one was a golden oldie for the old timers, that used to be "their favorite jam", wonder if that song is in the songbook they use now.
How about that other golden oldie "Rejoice, Rejoice", (from the green book) and who can forget that ol' Haiwiann ditty, I think it was song #19, that some brother from Waikiki or something wrote for the Society?
Would you believe back in the 70's my old cong, used to gather on Saturday nights, to practice the songs, and we used to have a guitar and two violin players in addtion to the piano ! !
