The Reverend Cleavant Derricks was born in 1910 at Chattanooga, Tennessee. He studied at Cadek Conservatory of Music in Knoxville and at the State University and American Baptist Theological Seminary in Nashville. He wrote more than 300 songs, including "Just A Little Talk with Jesus," which he copyrighted in 1937as "Have a Little Talk With Jesus," and "When God Dipped His Love In My Heart," both recorded by Elvis. The original Stamps Quartet was formed in 1924 by Frank Stamps and signed a recording contract with RCA in 1927. Their original version of "Just A Little Talk With Jesus" was recorded on 13 May, 1938, and released on Columbia 20271, as well as on Conqueror 9668 and Vocalion 04329. On all releases, "Just A Little Talk With Jesus" appeared as the B side to "The Lord Is With Me."
The Stamps went through various personnel line-ups throughout the years. Early in the 1970s the Stamps, headed by bassman J.D. Sumner, started working as Elvis's backing vocalists. Elvis visited the Sun studios on December 4th and ended up in a jam session which has become legendary as the "Million Dollar Quartet." Actually, the quartet was a trio (Johnny Cash, the fourth, was present while pictures were being taken, but left before the recordings started): Elvis, his friend Carl Perkins, and new Sun artist Jerry Lee Lewis. The three ended up in an informal jam session, which Sam Phillips wisely committed to tape. Most of the numbers sung were, like "Just a Little Talk/Walk with Jesus," gospels.
