Is This Love
Federal Green, Mid 80s. New Copy (reissue)
A rare gospel set from A Glenn Dailey – one done in a mode that mixes modern soul with spiritual messages – all at a level that makes the whole thing feel like a great indie set of quiet storm soul! Tunes are mostly laidback, and move at a really mellow, late nite pace – slow-buil ... LP, Vinyl record album
Checker, Early 70s. New Copy (reissue)
Damn funky gospel from The Violinaires – easily one of the hippest spiritual albums you could ever hope to find on Chess! The groove here is gritty Chicago funk, put together by Gene Barge with lots of heavy bass on the bottom – in a blend that's somewhere between the Cadet/Concept ... LP, Vinyl record album
Numero, Late 60s/Early 70s. New Copy
Killer gospel work from a small Chicago label – most of it pretty darn funky and soulful as well! The label sticker on the album's cover states a link too musical roots in the deep south – but the overall sound here is more in that wonderful hybrid of spiritual and secular that ... LP, Vinyl record album
Dust To Digital, Late 20s. New Copy CD & Book
Other-worldly sounds from Washington Phillips – an artist you might consider as an early force in gospel music, but one who has a style that's all his own! Washington sings alongside his own music on zither – notes that have a ringing, cascading vibe that's almost heavenly, but handled ... CD
HOB/Caroline, 1970s. New Copy 2 CDs
Maybe not the deepest roots of gospel, but an excellent collection of killer cuts from the catalog of Hob Records – one of the coolest labels from back in the day! Most of these tracks are of 70s vintage, and have a style that draws heavily on secular soul currents of the time, while letting ... CD
Narroway, Late 50s/Early 60s. New Copy
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 ... CD
Move Upstairs
Daptone, 2017. New Copy
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 ... CD
Gospel Friend, Late 40s/Early 50s. New Copy
A legendary gospel quintet, and one who sing with the same sort of vocal interplay you'd hear from the best doo wop groups of the time – presented here in a killer collection of work from their formative early years – including tracks that feature later famous solo stars like Lou Rawls, ... CD
