The Swan Silvertones' second Vee-Jay LP is an impressive collection of gospel singing dominated by the compositions of Rev. Claude Jeter, particularly "Rock My Soul," which went on to greater renown. The group's reverent fervor is underscored by their sense of dread, notably on the terrifying "Sinking Sand," in which they confess that they fear the instability of the ground beneath their feet. As much as the songs themselves, of course, it is the group's impassioned singing that makes Singin' in My Soul another classic gospel album from the Swan Silvertones.
