VariousBest Of Revelation Records 1959 to 1962 ... CD
Narroway, Late 50s/Early 60s. New Copy ... $15.99 19.98
A treasure trove of gospel from the New York scene – all recorded for the Revelation Records imprint – a partner label to Bobby Robinson's legendary Fire & Fury labels! Given Robinson's strong ear for early soul, R&B, and blues, there's a lot of rootsy power in these recordings – a way of producing both the vocals and instrumental passages in styles that definitely showcase Revelation's importance during these key birth of soul years – with lots of modes that would end up in secular soul a few years later! The CD's overflowing with gems that are sure to please both soul and gospel fans – 27 tracks that include "Guide Me" by The Soul Finders, "Sinner Like Me" by Christine Clark, "I Want To Go Home" by Drexall Singers, "If I Live Right" by Five Singing Stars, "Prodigal Son" by Mighty Gians, "I Know Who Holds Tomorrow" by Dr Coleman & Her Gospel Singers, "Pick Up Your Bed" by Twilight Gospel Singers, and "I've Got A Home" by Holy Wonders.

VariousBless The People Everywhere – Gospel Funk Of Peacock & Songbird ... CD
Peacock/Playback, Late 60s/Early 70s. Used ... $11.99
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.

VariousGive Me My Flowers – Powerhouse Gospel Music From The 50s & 60s On Nashboro Records ... LP
Nashboro/Third Man, 1950s/Early 60s. New Copy ... $16.99
A fantastic collection of postwar gospel recordings from the legendary Nashboro Records – one of the most important imprints for the music back in the 50s and 60s! We rank the work of Nashboro right up with the famous Houston-bred productions of Peacock Records – and as Peacock was part of the secular soul label Duke, Nashboro was also part of the blues powerhouse Excello – which means that the cuts here are put together at a level that's maybe got as much understanding of the needs of the record racks and jukebox scene, as they are aimed at the higher ideals of the lyrics! Nashboro excelled especially in the sorts of small vocal groups that can make gospel singles from this time every bit as much a slice of harmony heavy as rare doo wop tracks – and titles here include "Seven Angels" by The Trumpeteers, "Just One Step" by Little Johnny Jones & The Little Jones Singers, "I Received My Blessing" by Radio Four, "Touch Me Lord Jesus" by Angelic Gospel Singers, "Give Me My Flowers" by The Consolers, "I Would Not Be A Sinner" by Dixie Nightingales, "Jesus Keeps Me Alive" by The Skylarks, "Sit Down Servant" by Swanee Quintet, "When Jesus Stays Home" by Southern Echoes Singers, and "Rest From My Labor" by Supreme Angels. 16 cuts in all – and very nicely done!

✨✧ VariousPut The Whole Armour On – Female Black Gospel 1940s/1950s ... CD
Gospel Friend (Germany), Late 40s/Early 50s. New Copy 2CDs ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A wealth of female gospel from the early years of the genre – served up here on a double-length set that features tracks from some of the important stars of the time, plus a host of rare gems that we've never heard before! Most of the material here features a lead female singer with a smaller group – in the style that Sister Rosetta Tharpe made famous, often with an equal tie to R&B in some of the other material – backing that's spare, but which might have an electric guitar or bluesy piano – even though the fantastic vocalist is always right out front in the lead. As with other titles in this series, the package is great – a very thoughtful, essential collection of rare gospel – 54 tracks in all, with titles that include "Just A Few Days Of Labor" by Sallie Martin, "Move Up A Little Higher" by Madam Ernestin Martin, "A Traveler's Tune" by Marie Knight, "Own Me As A Child" by Lockhart Singers, "What's The News" by Sister Rosetta Tharpe, "Didn't It Rain" by Simmons/Akers Trio, "Until We Met" by Mary Frazier, "He Knows My Heart" by Sister Elisabeth Eustice, "When God Dips His Love In My Heart" by Ethen Davenport, and "Follow In His Footsteps" by Angelic Gospel Singers.

✨✧ VariousSoul Of Designer Records (4CD box set) ... CD
Designer/Big Legal Mess, 1960s. New Copy 4CD ... Out Of Stock
A tremendous legacy in gospel music during the 60s – a crucially important indie from the Memphis scene – and one who recorded really great groups from around the country! Designer were helping shape the sound of modern gospel at the same time as Chess, Savoy, and some of the bigger labels – and doing their work with a similar ear towards some of the more soulful sounds of the secular world – particularly in the way the harmonies and sound of group vocals came together! And despite their name – designer – which might make you think in terms of throwaway fashion – the label has a really classic sound and a rock-solid approach, which makes this overstuffed 4CD set a treasure trove for anyone interested in these key years in gospel music. The set features 101 tracks, in a very cool LP-sized sleeve, complete with an oversized booklet filled with notes and photos – and the collection features work by Foster Brothers, Gospel Songbirds, Twilight Singers, Melody Kings Of Greenwood MS, The Jubilee Hummingbirds, Jackson Trumpeteers, Little Willie Patterson & The Famous South Land Singers, The Shaw Singers, Sister Carrie Daniel, and many many more!
