The Hightowers were five Floridian brothers guided and accompanied by their father, Reverend Nick. They recorded five tracks for New Jersey's Savoy Records before spending three years with Nashville's Nashboro label, mostly tackling the Reverend's originals. (His best song, "Seat in the Kingdom" - Sugar had a voice as big as the best of them, sent the needle in search of new shades of red. His mannerisms can verge on self-parody, but that's simple precociousness: When these tracks went to tape between 1960 and 1962, according to Opal L. Nations' liner notes, the singer would have been between ten and thirteen years old. Can I get an exclamation point?
