✨✧ VariousGospel Soul Of Detroit – Sanctified Sounds from the Motor City ... LP
Detroit Gospel Reissue Project, 1960s/Early 70s. New Copy ... Just Sold Out!
A deep deep dig into the Detroit gospel scene – one that goes way farther than the bigger work by artists like CL Franklin and his famous daughters – and which instead looks at the wealth of work circulating on labels that mostly only issued 45rpm recordings! The music here is wonderful – a real revelation, from a city that had countless churches that each prided themselves on top-shelf singing groups to deliver the message on a Sunday morning – most of them artists who were also drinking deep from the same local brew that produced more famous Detroit soul at the time! Production on most of these tracks is mighty lean – leaving the vocals right up front in the mix, often driven by a few key instrumental elements – and titles include "Lord I Want You To Move" by Sensational Pontiac Spiritual Singers, "Save Me Jesus" by Gospel Blue Jays, "Another Soldier Gone" by Detroit Motor City Singers, "Have You Tried Jesus" by The Trumpelettes, "Been To The Water" by The Shackleford Singers, "My Captain" by The Pure Heart Travelers, and "Pressing On" by The Silver Harps.

VariousOne-Der-Ful Collection – Halo Records ... CD
One Der Ful/Secret Stash, Late 60s/Early 70s. New Copy ... $14.99 17.99
A really unique side of the legendary One-Derful family of Chicago soul music labels – the tiny Halo imprint, where the company issued all of their incredible gospel music! The Halo sound is like a deep soul take on the other One-Derful/Mar-V-Lus material – cut at the same time, in a similar scene, often with the same studio talent too – but tuned towards styles that are more righteous and more mellow than some of the more upbeat soul on the bigger labels – a heady brew of Chicago roots and heavenly inspiration, served up here in one mighty nice set! As with the others in the series, there's a number of cuts here that were never issued at the time – which makes this collection way more than just a "best of" the label – and instead more of an archival package, especially given the huge booklet of notes that comes along with the whole thing. A beautiful look at this under-exposed side of the Chicago 60s scene – with titles that include "Why Can't We Love Our Fellowman" by The Golden Tones, "Send Your Cleansing Power" by The Gospel Ambassadors, "Lord Deliver Me" by The Original Ensemble, "Why Do Men Treat The Lord As They Do" by The Redemption Harmonizers, "Man In The City (parts 1 & 2)" by The Lucy Rogers Singers, "Lord I Will Never Forget" by Rev Lofton & The Holy Travelers, "Keep Movin Along" by The Daytonians, and "I Have Made A Change" by The Flying Clouds Of Joy.

VariousSaved & Sanctified – The Songs Of The Jade Label (with bonus download) ... LP
Numero, Late 60s/Early 70s. New Copy ... $16.99 19.99
Killer gospel work from a small Chicago label – most of it pretty darn funky and soulful as well! The label sticker on the album's cover states a link too musical roots in the deep south – but the overall sound here is more in that wonderful hybrid of spiritual and secular that happened in the Chicago scene in the 70s – as hipper, more sophisticated modes came into play with the message – and resulted in grooves that are equally appealing to soul music fans as well! All the cuts were put together in a tiny studio on the city's west side – and as with most Numero projects, the package provides an essential look at a musical scene we might have missed otherwise – even though Dusty Groove is just a few miles down the street from the original studio. Titles include "Satisfied Mind" by Reverend Jennings, "Got To Make A Hundred" by Harmony Four, "Soul Couldn't Be Contented" by The Inspirational Souls, "Saved & Sanctified" by Brother Hayes & The Farmer Singers, "My Shoes" by Flying Eagle Gospel Singers, "Never Alone" by The Gospel Clouds, and "Why Is The Blood Running Warm" by The Mighty Messiahs.

✨✧ VariousBless The People Everywhere – Gospel Funk Of Peacock & Songbird ... CD
Peacock/Playback, Late 60s/Early 70s. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
The famous Duke/Peacock label was one of the most important forces in gospel music during the 50s and early 60s – home to some of the hippest, most soul-drenched acts – especially the male vocal groups that were helping transform the genre, and pave the way for lots of soul artists to come! Yet by the time of these sides, Peacock was also picking up a lot of influence back from soul music too – using funky currents to help sell a spiritual message – all at a level that never got in the way of the vocals at all, and in face only seemed to inspire the singers with a more righteous sound overall! Once the label merged with ABC Records in the early 70s, things got even cooler and groovier – but even on the cuts before those numbers, there's a funky soul vibe that resonates throughout this collection – and makes the whole thing one of the most badass gospel sets we've ever stocked. Titles include "Where Could I Go" by Pilgrim Outlets, "Try Again" by The Loving Sisters, "Generation Gap" by Paul Owens & The Capital City Star Singers, "Something For Nothing" by Carl Bean & Universal Love, "This Is Not The First Time I've Been Last" by Inez Andrews, "Voo Doo Ism" by Spirit Of Memphis, "Bless The People Everywhere" by Liz Dargan & The Gospelettes, "What's Wrong With People Today" by The Sensational Williams Brothers, "Games People Play" by The Salem Travelers, "Living A Saved Life Now" by Josh Albert Hailey, and "Crying Won't Help" by Pilgrim Jubilees.

Bennie WallaceSweeping Through The City ... LP
Enja (Germany), 1984. Near Mint- ... $9.99
A unique record from Bennie Wallace – one recorded with both a jazz group and gospel backing – all held together beautifully by the tenor in the lead! The album's got a surprising degree of charm – and works with far less of the gimmicky feel that you might expect – largely because the core energy comes from the combo, which also features Ray Anderson on trombone and John Scofield on guitar – moving with a full, angular energy that seems to set Wallace on fire. The gospel group comes in on two of the album's tracks – never too overwhelming, and almost in ways that seem to flesh out the musical "story" begun by the musicians. Titles include "Eight Page Bible", "Trouble & Woe", "Some Might Think We Are Dancing", "The Bread Man", and "Sweeping Through The City". (Jazz, Gospel) LP, Vinyl record album

VariousTroubled Waters – A Compilation Of Blues & Gospel Recordings By George Mitchell 1962 to 1976 ... LP
Mississippi, 1960s/1970s. Near Mint- ... $11.99
Great field recordings from the 60s and 70s – mostly secular blues, and done in a style that's kind of a modern update of sounds from the delta! Most cuts here feature just a voice and guitar – recorded by George Mitchell with this really haunting, eerie quality that's very different than studio blues of the time – that kind of close-up and personal vibe of an ethnographic recording, with a style that's incredibly moving, even when very subtle. There's no overdone attempts at authenticity here – yet the organic power of the music really comes through – on titles that include "Careless Love" by Furry Lewis, "Hey Freddie" by Napoleon Strickland, "Poor Black Mattie" by RL Burnside, "Lucy Mae Blues" by Cecil Barfield, "Count The Days I'm Gone" by Rosa Lee Hill, "Miss Maybelle" by Jessie Lee Fortis, "My Lord" by Green Pascal, and a few instrumentals by James Davis on guitar!
