An amazing, soul-shaking gospel soul compilation on 3CDs – a follow up to the equally great Fire In My Bones collection of postwar sides – and we're going to hope (and pray!) that This May Be My Last Time Singing isn't the last time that our friends at Tompkins Square draws so deeply from this well of African American spiritual music! We were blown away by Fire In My Bones, and truth
be told, we didn't think it would be equaled by this follow up. Truth
is, this one might even be better! Raw soul music in the truest sense – beautiful recordings originally released on rare independent 45s – songs by The Fantastic Angels, Missionaires, The Whirlwinds, The Detroit Silvertones, Zion Travellers, Otis Wright, Echoes Of Harmony, Fire Side Spiritual Singers, Sylvia Phillip, Ethel Profit, Rev Lonnie Farris and many, many more. You will believe in this music! True to their nature, Tompkins Square and producer Mike McGonigal treat the material with reverence and passion, packing it with great notes and photos, and more importantly, they make sure it sounds as beautiful as possible. 72 tracks and nearly 4 hours of music: "He Will Fix It" by Sam Williams & The Harris Singers, "Down Here Praying" by The Detroit Silvertones, "The Little Light" by Fantastic Voices, "Stop Living On Me" by Rev R Henderson, "I'm Working On A Building" by Brother Grady Coffee, "There's A Place" by Jessie Lee Harris, "Last Time" by Brother Will Hairston, "Baptized" by Clefs Of Harmony, "On The Right Road Now" by Crump Brothers, "(Make Old) Satan Leave Me Alone" by Sensational Whirlwinds and many more.
