Famous L. Renfroe :: Children. A long time ago I used to hear spiritual singers singing beautiful songs and I wanted to be a singer too. I first started my musical career by singing in small local groups in my hometown of Memphis, Tennessee. In the year 1968 I came to Seattle and started singing with local groups, but failed to find one that was stable enough to record (with) so I decided to cut an album by myself. The above quote is the only known context for this incredible, singular, album by Famous L. Renfroe or, as he dubbed himself, The Flying Sweet Angel of Joy. 1968’s Children was reissued in 2008 courtesy of Fat Possum Records, but the details of the album’s original release and reception remain scant. DIY in approach, there is a homespun, ramshackle fidelity to Children, thanks in no small part to Renfroe essentially performing the entirety of the record by himself.

In 2008, Fat Possum re-released an album by the mysterious Famous L. Renfroe that originally appeared in 1969. It paradoxically sounds both of its time and timeless; it holds the same shoddy charm of an Alan Lomax field recording, while the soulful backup singers and funk beats place it firmly in the late 1960s.

A long time ago I used to hear spiritual singers singing beautiful songs and I wanted to be a singer too.

I first started my musical career by singing in small local groups in my home town of Memphis, Tenn. In the year 1968 I came to Seattle, Washington and started singing with local groups but failed to find one that was stable enough to record so I decided to cut an album by myself. The music was written and produced by myself who except for the drum parts done the entire record.
