"As I ventured on a quest to discover the true story of my great-uncle Claude Ely, I was taken to many coal camps, hollows, and Pentecostal-Holiness churches throughout Appalachia. In the process, I located literally thousands of people who gave firsthand accounts of being in church services, tent revivals, camp meetings, or at radio stations where he had preached and sung in the Appalachian Mountains. What a privilege it was to record hundreds of these testimonials digitally. With each interview, I discovered I was learning not only more about the life and ministry of my great-uncle, but also the precious history of his followers and those who loved him most."

Macel Ely II, excerpted from the preface to Ain't No Grave.

Ain’t No Grave

The Life and Legacy of Brother Claude Ely

Published by Dust to Digital
By Macel Ely II.

Featured image is reproduced from <a href="http://www.artbook.com/9780981734224.html">Ain’t No Grave</a>.Once described as the King Recording Label's “Gospel Ranger,” Brother Claude Ely (1922-1978) was known and loved throughout the Appalachian mountains as both a religious singer-songwriter and a Pentecostal-Holiness preacher. Few people, however, knew the details of his childhood, military service and years of hard toil in the coal fields of southwestern Virginia. What Ely was known for was his brilliance as a preacher and his songwriting gifts. Through the enormous popularity of songs like “There Ain't No Grave Gonna Hold My Body Down,” Brother Claude Ely bequeathed a musical and spiritual influence that continues to resonate throughout the Appalachians and in gospel music today. Authored by Ely's great-nephew Macel Ely, Ain't No Grave: The Life and Legacy of Brother Claude Ely is an oral biography composed from recorded interviews with more than 1,000 people in the Appalachian Mountains who knew Brother Claude Ely. An accompanying CD collects two recordings of “There Ain't No Grave” alongside other songs and sermons.
