Arizona Dranes celebrated in new book/CD package

THE LEGENDARY gospel singer/pianist who lived and died in obscurity but has subsequently been celebrated on numerous re-issues of her recordings, Arizona Dranes, is the subject of a new book/CD package released recently. He Is My Story - The Sanctified Soul Of Arizona Dranes by Michael Corcoran is published by Tompkins Square. Wrote Mojo magazine, "Anyone searching for the roots of Jerry Lee Lewis need look no further than this born-blind evangelist from Sherman, Texas. This combined book and CD release documents the Dranes phenomena in exemplary fashion." CR
