Gospel Slot - The Pilgrim Travelers - How Jesus Died (1956)

Forerunner of Lonely Avenue (the first real song of significance for Doc Pomus, recorded by Ray Charles on Atlantic also in 56), this gospel song from the Pilgrim Travelers has a superb vocal from Jesse Whitaker.  Also included is a later version of the group, with Lou Rawls taking a turn singing lead.
