Library of Congress
Two sessions: the first an Easter Service at Wesley Yonges Island United Methodist Church, Johns Island Charge, South Carolina and a April 11, 1971, session with Joe Hunter and Friends. The Easter service recording includes just a hymn and discussion from the congregation. The Joe Hunter Session includes "Prayer," "She's A Long-Legged Woman," and "Leave Me Alone." The recording also includes a false start and some discussion over what Joe Hunter will play with Henrietta Yurchenco and a woman presumed to be Janie Hunter.
