VariousComo Now –The Voices of Panola County, Mississippi ... CD
Daptone, 2008. Used ... $2.99
The most directly soul shaking album yet from Daptone Records – acapella gospel soul recorded live at Mt Mariah Church in Como, Mississippi – rootsy beauty sung by Mary Moore, The John Edwards Singers, Brother And Sister Walker, Como Mamas, Irene Stevenson and others! In a way, Como Now is the first foray into field recording by funk & soul saviors Daptone – but honest, truthful heart and soul has always been the order of the day for Daptone's house superstar Sharon Jones – it may be the first gospel album on the label, but the project is not really as huge a leap as you might think. In any case, it's perfectly free of the academic conceits that bog down so many stuffy collections of the ilk – and the presentation is simply beautiful – glorious harmonies, stirringly emotional and celebratory lead vocals, unadorned and in no need of accompaniment! Titles include "When The Gates Swing Open" "Somebody Needs You Lord" and more by Mary Moore, "It's Alright" and "New Burial Ground" by The John Edwards Singers", "God's Unchanging Hand" by Como Mamas feat Mary Moore, "Talk With Jesus" by The Jones Sisters and much more.
