CD


4.60 45

A great collection of classic Gospel tunes – pulled from the catalogs of Chess, Vee Jay, Savoy, Vault, Jewel, and Peacock Records! The set was put together as an offshoot of the Chicago-based Steppin Muzak label – and it features the kind of timeless gospel tunes that have always held the hearts of those in the Chicago soul scene – classics that go way beyond church, and have become as important as soul tunes over the years! Titles include "Well Well Well" by The Swan Silvertones, "Teach Me" by The Highway QCs, "I Stood On The Banks Of Jordan (part 2)" by James Cleveland, "Behold The Beauties Of The Lord" by The Caravans, "Motherless Child" by Ben Branch, "We Need More Love" by Reverend Sammy Lewis, "I Must Tell Jesus" by Fellowship Missionary Baptist Church with Clay Evans, "Open Your Eyes" by The Gospel Clefs, "It's Gonna Rain" by The Sensational Nightingales, and "Christmas Joy" by The Soul Stirrers. 15 tracks in all. (Note: Some of the titles here were mastered from vinyl sources – but we've been assured that the collection is legit.)  © 1996-2014, Dusty Groove, Inc.

EMI/RPM (UK), 1970. New Copy 2 CDs
One of the grooviest albums ever recorded – a set that's funky, offbeat, and has way more to offer than most American album of the time! Swedish singer Doris really knocked it out of the park with this one – working with arranger Bert Egerbladh, who gives the set some nicely unusual ... CD
Solar/Big Break (UK), 1982. New Copy 2 CDs
A key album in the legendary 80s run of Shalamar – and a set that gets a tremendous amount out of a very stripped-down sound! The sound of Shalamar builds from a bit of bass, some snapping drums, waves of keyboards, and especially great vocals – warm and sweet, but never too commercial ... CD
Blue Sky/Purpose, 1979. New Copy
A stunning disco classic from Dan Hartman – maybe an unlikely talent for the dancefloors, given his image on the cover – but an artist who definitely went onto shape the sound of the clubs at the end of the 70s! The album's got the Hartman groove really hitting hard, and right on the ... CD
Total Experience/Big Break (UK), 1985. New Copy
Sweet electro funk from The Gap Band – a group who are still grooving strong here, hitting the best of their Total Experience modes! The trio's mighty tight throughout – and their familiar funk is augmented by some electro touches that definitely keep things fresh – and we mean ... CD
