San Francisco Christian Center ChoirSound of the San Francisco Christian Center ... LP
Cultures Of Soul, Mid 70s. New Copy (reissue)... $21.99 27.99
A really fantastic album of spiritual soul from a San Francisco church in the 70s – one of those rare and sublime albums that's equally appealing to fans of gospel as it is to fans of 70s soul! The arrangements and presentation are great – full of well-crafted grooves that move from gentle to midtempo – with shifting vocal leads amidst the larger group, who provide this beautifully uplifting vibe – maybe similar to the Voices Of East Harlem or the NYCC! The music here is somewhere in between those groups – as a few tunes actually pick up the pace, and echo the dancefloor modes of the NYCC – but the mix of male and female vocals has this vibe that's also got more of the open, earnest quality of the Voices – which makes for a really wonderful blend and a deep spirit all the way through. Titles include "Let Him In", "The Promise", "Let Jesus Have His Way", "Joy", "Song Of Thanksgiving", and "Hebrews". LP, Vinyl record album
(Previously listed as a Record Store Day title – now bumped to wide release!)

✨✧ VariousGreg Belson's Divine Disco – American Gospel Disco 1974 to 1984 ... CD
Cultures Of Soul, Late 70s/Early 80s. New Copy ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Think disco sounds only hit the dancefloors in the 70s? Think again – because this killer collection brings back a whole host of club-sounding gospel tunes from the time – proving once again that soul and gospel records have always gone hand in hand over the years! The vibe isn't mainstream disco, the kind you'd hear on the charts – and instead is the hipper side of upbeat styles – the funk and well-crafted rhythms used by some of the better indies during the disco generation, and that great run of underground club styles in the early 80s too! The righteous message of most of these tracks makes them pretty darn spiritual – and the whole thing almost feels like a precursor to some of the more uplifting soulful house of the past decade or so. There's loads of surprises here – so many cuts we'd never heard before – and titles include "You" by Gloria Griffin, "Faith Is The Key" by Enlightenment, "One More Chance Lord" by Delores Fuller, "No Greater Love" by The Testimonial Singers, "Give Your Best To The Master" by Shirley Finney, "Trouble Don't Always Last" by Masters Of Music, "Free Spirit" by Betty Griffin, "Jesus Is Going Away" by The Inspirational Souls, "Nowhere To Run" by The Gospelaires Of Dayton Ohio, and "What Kind Of Man Is This" by Enlightenment. Also features a few remixes – "Thank You Jesus (Steve Cobby rmx)" by Gospel Ambassadors, and "Trouble Don't Always Last (Rahaan edit)" by Masters Of Music. (Funky Compilations, Gospel) CD

✨✧ VariousGreg Belson's Divine Disco Vol 2 – Obscure Gospel Disco 1979 to 1987 ... CD
Cultures Of Soul, Late 70s/Early 80s. New Copy ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A pretty fantastic selection of rare disco tracks from the American underground – all of them infused with a spiritual message, but served up with grooves that go head to head with some of the best underground club of the time! The mix of positive energy and upbeat grooves is wonderful – and if you've ever heard the Clark Sisters club classic "You Brought The Sunshine", then you'll definitely know the spirit of these tunes! If you're worried about the message being one that you're not into, don't – because there's sort of a universal spirit going on here – one that gets past conventions of the church, and which really goes for a general uplifting message that's totally great – almost a precursor to some of the positive house in more recent decades. And speaking of house, there's less of that here than you'd expect – as most of the instrumentation and production are strongly in the best New York underground modes from the disco years – with less of any 80s or electro soul elements. Titles include "I Believe" by Calvin B Rhone, "Imitations" by Johnson Family Gospel Singers, "Change" by Wisdom, "On That Other Shore" by Harrison Jones & The Voices Of Harmony, "I've Been Converted" by The Converters, "Ain't No Way To Do Wrong" by New Creation, "Take It To The Streets" by Prophecy, "Let The Lord Come In Your Life" by Wisdom, "Keep The Fire" by Paradise, and "Jesus Is On The Mainline" by Mr Jesse R McGuire.

VariousGreg Belson's Divine Funk ... CD
Cultures Of Soul, 1970s. New Copy ... $12.99 15.99
A heavenly set of funky tracks from the indie scene of the 70s – titles that were all recorded as singles for the gospel market, but which have a fair bit of funk in the rhythms! These tunes all have massive appeal well beyond their spiritual message – heavy drums, amazing basslines, and nicely gritty instrumentation that sets these cuts up right next to funky 45 treasures from the mid 70s – but which also gives them a slightly different feel, too – thanks to some uplifting messages in the lyrics, which also means that the vocal styles are nicely changed up from more standard funk-based lyrics! The blend is wonderful, and completely captivating – and we'd not heard most of these cuts before digging into the collection – which goes every bit as deep as the Good God gospel/funk collections on Numero. Titles include "If You See Me Doing Wrong" by Wearyland Singers, "I Don't Want To Be Alone" by Allen Gauff Jr, "Troubles Of The World" by The Christian Harmonizers, "Save A Seat For Me" by Vocal Aires, "Blackman Keep On Doing Your Thing" by The Original Christian Harmonizers, "Days Are Just Like People" by Zella Jackson, "I've Got Power In My Mind" by Preacherman Isidore Womack, and "Who's Your Boss" by Pearl Farano & The High Lites Of Joy.
