Check this out! Vintage tracks from a 1962 LP by the Savettes with Elder Goldwire McClendon on lead!

It's no secret, Elder Goldwire McClendon is a contender to be the winner on BET's Sunday Best for 2010. 79 year old Elder McClendon is clearly no stranger to gospel music, having started singing in the church at 9 years old. Something that only a few folks know is that Elder McClendon recorded during the Golden Era with The Savettes, and was featured as a lead vocalist on their first ever recording session in 1962. Here are 3 songs posted by Linwood Heath taken from the 1962 Savoy Records album featuring Elder McClendon on lead, with one song featuring Elder McClendon and his wife, Ruth on lead.
