Sun Folk Group History by David Caiazza (1996)


Excerpts from the Sun Folk Group CD Reprise: To Benefit St. Augustine Centennial, 1898–1998 (1998)

Editor’s Note: The full Reprise CD features 15 tracks. Copies of the original CD are available in the St. Monica Archives. The tracks were imported to a computer as M4A files. For WordPress compatibility, the M4As were converted to MP3 files.

We’ve shared tracks that are in the public domain — for instance, “Medley of Spirituals,” but not George Harrison’s “Give Me Love,” or the Godspell song “Prepare Ye the Way of the Lord.”

Track 06, “Medley of Spirituals.”
Track 10, “Man is Free.”
