Negro spiritual?[edit]

I went ahead and classed this song as a Negro spiritual, even though I couldn't find it in any of the collections of old slave and plantation songs collected after the Civil War. The problem with using the Jubilee Singers as a source is that they used songs from many sources in their performances. "Old Time Religion" seems more akin to those old songs that came out of the camp meetings of the 1820s and 30s than to other songs collected from former slaves--but 1873 is as best as so far found.

It isn't categorized as a Negro spiritual anymore, what happened? Maikel (talk) 12:43, 6 July 2008 (UTC)

Old time or old-time?[edit]

Shouldn't that be "Old-Time Religion" instead of "Old Time Religion" in order to foreclose the interpretation of "old time-religion"? Maikel (talk) 11:06, 6 July 2008 (UTC)

Parker Millsap[edit]

Could use a reference to the recent Parker Millsap song, which is clearly in reference to the original. — Preceding unsigned comment added by PaiselyModron (talkcontribs) 23:00, 29 May 2015 (UTC)
