Angel Band
Composer: W.B. Bradbury / Jefferson Hascall

Angel Band was performed by Old & In The Way in 1973 and by The Dead in 2004.

Authorship uncertain. The Old & In The Way recording credits Bradbury / Hascall. But other recordings credit many others. Sometimes it is listed as traditional. In the booklet that accompanies That High Lonesome Sound Neil V. Rosenberg says, " ... this song is attributed to Jefferson Hascall and W. B. Bradbury in R. E. Winsett's 1948 gospel songster Heavenly Sunlight. According to Charles K. Wolfe, Bradbury was a New York publisher and songwriter who seems to have flourished about the time of the Civil War. Like his other hit, Jesus Loves Me, Angel Band is of 1860s vintage."
