Brother John Witherspoon

At Milwaukee's Fellowship Missionary Baptist Church, Deacon Brother John Witherspoon caught the gospel bug. Released on Peacemaker, Brother John's “That’s Enough” is a raw slice of punchy gospel backed by an amateur R&B bar band. Unlike the Masonic Wonders, Witherspoon was neither prolific nor well known, but his group the Family Circle (made up of his first cousins) performed at numerous local churches throughout the late 1960s and 1970s.
