The Originals: Look For Me At Jesus’ Feet

The Originals: Look For Me At Jesus’ Feet

Image1A few weeks ago, I launched The Originals series with an article about the very first recording of “Glory Road.” Today, we’re going back to that very same group, The Calvarymen of West Virginia. As a matter of fact, the very same LP that included the original version of “Glory Road” also included the first recording of a song that would eventually be voted Song Of The Year in the Singing News Fan Awards some 30-plus years later.

Conrad Cook wasn’t the only songwriter in The Calvarymen. Squire Parsons was part of the group as well. Here’s the first recording of Squire’s song “Look For Me At Jesus’ Feet.”

As I mentioned in my previous article, the Kingsmen Quartet recorded “Glory Road” on their famous Big And Live LP in 1973. “Look For Me At Jesus’ Feet” also got the Kingsmen treatment on Big And Live.

The Booth Brothers are the group that recorded the song that won the Song Of The Year Fan Award in 2008, though it had been recorded nearly four years before voting started.

Here are a few more groups that have recorded the song over the years:
