=============== Extra Information ===============

I just recently found out about two albums I don't have (yet):

Sacred Ground
Selections (2-Set)

The second is mostly a re-release, but it has two previously unreleased
tracks.  I hope to get them in the next few weeks, so stay tuned. :^)

====================================================================

Bernice Johnson-Reagon is the founder and leader of Sweet Honey in
the Rock.  She began singing in church, and later sang as part of
the freedom movement of the '60s.  She has one solo album out, which
seems to have been put together before she organized Sweet Honey in the
Rock.  She also appears as part of "The Freedom Singers" in several
compilations.  See her separate discography for more details.

Bernice has a 4 volume series called "Wade in the Water" which is about
African American Spirituals.  Some Sweet Honey in the Rock appears on
those, but I don't have them (yet), so I don't have the details.

There is also a 2 CD set titled: "Freedom Is a Constant Struggle",
subtitled "Songs of the Mississippi Civil Rights Movement", which
includes Sweet Honey, Bernice Johnson Reagon, and others.


Bernice's daughter, Toshi helped in the production and arrangement of many
of the Sweet Honey in the Rock albums.  She has an album as well:

Reagon, Toshi|Justice|1990|Flying Fish|FF 70526
        Walking In Your Footsteps|4:42
        Colors|3:38
        How Long|4:05
        Nature Tells|3:58
        Yonder Come Day|2:25
        Justice|5:32
        Jesus Walks|5:32
        We've Got a Right To Choose|3:57
        Foolish Attitues|5:00

Toshi has some other albums out which I don't have:

    Kindness
    The Rejected Stone


Ysaye Barnwell - the bass singer for Sweet Honey has an album out:

        Singing...African American Trad'n

This is a 6 cassette set with intructional booklet teaching "rhythms,
harmonies, and vocal techniques, and stylistic subtleties".

The Ladyslipper catalog says: "Recommended by Alice Walker,
Ronnie Gilbert, Pete Seeger, and Ladyslipper!"
