The Selahs recorded for Continental as Selah Jubilee Quartet and Ruth Of Angelus Quartet, probably consisting of Ruth (lead), William "Highpockets" Langford (tenor), Theodore Harris (baritone), and Jimmy Gorham (bass).

At some point in 1945, Colden, Nelson, and Norman Harris became members of The Master Keys on Tops/20th Century labels.

In the late 1940's, Ruth formed a new group that would eventually become The Larks.
