Episode 7: "Jesus On My Mind"
Abe and Ferrill return from the Coots' recording session in Middlesboro, then conduct an extensive internet search to verify they are the true pioneers of recording these songs. They are surprised to discover an artist from New York named Tony Feyer, whose history with the serpent-handling faith includes the documenting of one of the most legendary serpent-handling churches of all time: the Church of the Lord Jesus in Jolo, West Virginia. Tony befriends Ferrill and Abe, and offers to share copies of DAT recordings that he produced in the early 90’s. The recordings were the fruit of Tony’s partnership with none other than American folk music documentarian, Alan Lomax.
