A beautiful mix of gospel soul and heavy Memphis production – and the kind of heavy soul album that made Rance Allen one of Stax's best new artists during the 70s. David Porter produced and arranged, and the album has some great electric keyboard work by Rance that provides a perfect ... (Soul, Gospel)read moreLP, Vinyl record album
A soul record we'd put up there with some of our favorites produced in Chicago during the early 70s – a gospel album from Pastor TL Barrett, but one that's gone on to legendary status among funk and soul collectors over the years! Barrett works here with his Youth For Christ Choir, of Mt. ... read moreLP, Vinyl record album
The first full length collection we've ever seen to focus on the soulful gospel work of Harold Boggs – one of the greatest male lead singers of the pre-soul generation! Right from the start, Boggs was a hell of a singer, and a great songwriter too – and he first entered the business ... read moreCD
An incredible side of the talents of the legendary Alice Coltrane – obscure 80s material that was recorded in the years after her famous records on Impulse and Warner Brothers – only ever issued on cassette at the time! The tracks have Alice still very much in the same spiritual ... (Jazz, Gospel)read moreLP, Vinyl record album
A second fantastic set from this Mississippi gospel trio – and one that mixes their heavenly vocals with a bit of Daptone Records funk! The set's produced by Bosco Mann, who also plays bass in the quartet that backs up the singers – and the groove is raw and gritty, with a vibe that ... read moreLP, Vinyl record album
Fantastic work from the Gospelaires – a group from Dayton, Ohio – but one who recorded most of the music here down in Houston – where they issued some tremendous singles for the Peacock label! The group are incredible – and sing with a hard-edged frenzy that's maybe more ... read moreCD
A contemporary gospel group, but one that reminds us of those really cool spiritual acts from the New York scene at the 70s – when gospel styles were blending with soul, and coming up with a very righteous new style in the process! "He's On Time" is upbeat, funky, and fantastic ... (Funky 45's, Gospel)read more7-inch, Vinyl record
Incredibly unique work from Panduranga Henderson – an artist who first worked as John Henderson in the group of Ray Charles, then hooked up with Alice Coltrane and had a spiritual awakening that really shaped his sound!

A beautiful batch of gospel work from Shirley Ann Lee – a vocalist who originally worked the spiritual circuit in a trio with Candi Staton!

Just Sold Out!
Kickin it is – as the album's way more than just the typical gospel you might expect – and is a perfect example of the way the Mighty Clouds Of Joy helped cross the bridge between secular and spiritual sounds in the 70s!

A pair of wonderful records – reissued here together as a single 2LP set!

Obscure bit of soulful gospel produced by James Brown for King. Kay Robinson's got a great voice, and the arrangements are similar to some of James' hard soul albums from the time. There's no breakbeat cuts here, but the music is quite strong, and given the strength of the arrangements, you'll ... (Soul, Gospel)read moreLP, Vinyl record album
