There are no other recordings of the Boundless Love Quartet, but country gospel style fuses traditional Southern white religious singing, as heard on Southern Journey Volume 4:

Brethren, We Meet Again, Rounder 1704, with the upbeat, jazzy style pioneered by the Golden Gate Quartet, who can be heard on Swing Down, Chariot, Columbia/Legacy CK 47131.

This fusion was popularized in the 1950s by the Mississippi-born Blackwood Brothers, who can be heard on:

The Blackwoods, Chordant Music Group: 44905. 1997

Gospel Classic Series, RCA: 67624. 1998
