A bit of a departure in the soul roots-digging La Noire compilation series – taking a turns towards early 60s gospel soul on this volume – with rollickingly soulful, spiritually resonant singles by Madame Nellie Robinson, The Pilgrim Travelers, Marie Knight, Reverend Charlie
Jackson, The Gospelaires and more! It's wonderful stuff, released as 45s back then on Savoy, Nashboro, Booker, Peacock
and other labels. They've got the raw rhythms of the best independent rootsy soul of the period, paired with passionate lead and glorious harmony vocals – great stuff all the way. 14 tunes in all, including "Mini-Your-Dress is Too Short" by Madame Nellie Robinson, "I Can See So Much" by Reverend Cleophus Robinson, "Take Me By The Hand" by Ray Crume, "Who Rolled The Stone Away" by Marie Knight, "Glory Is Coming" by Sunset Travelers, "Morning Train" by Reverend Charlie
Jackson and more.
