Truth, 1973. Very Good Gatefold ... $6.99
A very strange one for Stax! The record came out on Stax's Truth subsidiary – and like most of the records on that imprint, it had a religious bent to it. However, unlike most of the other acts on the label, who were Memphis based, this one appears to be British – and also followers of Guru Maharaji Ji! The sound of the best tracks is almost in a Hair-type mode – kind of groovy, with large chorus vocals, and a slight bit of funk in the arrangements. The album sports two great instrumental funky tunes called "Alive & Well" and "Foxfire" – and other tracks include "Oh Maharaj Ji", "Satguru Has Come", "At The Feet Of The Master", "Arti", and "Rock Me Maharaj Ji".

Big MaybelleGospel Soul Of Big Maybelle ... CD
Brunswick/Ultra Vybe (Japan), 1968. New Copy ... About April 27, 2016 (delayed)
An obscure session for Big Maybelle, but a great one too – a record that has her moving past the melancholy blues of her earlier work, into a lively gospel-based mode that's surprisingly great for her voice! The sound is quite upbeat and joyous – in a style that really has Maybelle's voice soaring to the skies – supported by arrangements from Alan Lorber and John Jacobs that are a bit like some of the backings Jackie Wilson received at Brunswick, including some additional chorus support. Tunes are a mix of gospel standards and a few secular tracks as well – and titles include "Nobody Knows The Trouble I've Seen", "Do Lord", "Dry Bones", "Down By The Riverside", and "Swing Low Sweet Chariot".
