Yahoo LAUNCHCAST Song Of The Day-Slim & The Supreme Angels
Artist:Slim & The Supreme Angels
Album:Nobody But You
The veteran gospel group Slim & The Supreme Angels were led by Rev. Howard "Slim" Hunt. He was born Dec. 13, 1934 in Mississippi and grew up in Milwaukee. He started out as a member of The Soul Seekers in the early 50s and then joined The Supreme Angels in 1956. In the 70s, Hunt reinvented the group as Slim & The Supreme Angels and they were one of the most popular traditional gospel groups for many years. Hunt also became an ordained minister in 1986 and founded The Deliverance Temple in Dillon, SC. Groups like this don't record for major labels. Nobody But You is a live recording that was originally released by Intersound Records in 1996. Intersound was swallowed by Platinum Records and then Platinum went broke. The Platinum catalog includes the Intersound & Light gospel labels and they're now owned by the Compendia Music Group. They rereleased Nobody But You in 2007 with a bonus DVD. Rev. Howard "Slim" Hunt died on Feb. 25, 2007 at age 72. Slim & The Supreme Angels are one of the cornerstone groups that have built the contemporary gospel music industry.
