Reverend Louis Overstreet :: I’m Working On A Building

Reverend Louis Overstreet was born in Louisiana in 1947. He began singing in gospel quartets and preaching at a young age, before settling in Phoenix, Arizona in 1961. It was in Phoenix that  Overstreet was discovered by Chris Strachwitz of Arhoolie Records, who would record and release the album Rev. Louis Overstreet — His Guitar, His Sons and the Congregation of St. Luke’s Powerhouse Church of God in Christ. Seriously raw, intense homespun gospel, Overstreet’s recordings have most recently appeared on the Mississippi Records tape, Everybody . . .
