XSpiritual sounds with plenty of soul -- gospel groups, choirs, sermons, and even some gospel funk too!


Savoy/Honest Jons (UK), Late 50s/1960s/1970s/Early 80s. New Copy 3CD
An insanely fantastic look at the strong legacy of gospel music from Savoy Records – a company who were initially a powerhouse in the fields of jazz and R&B, but who moved into the gospel world and dominated that market for decades! Savoy is a bit like Chess Records – a company who ... CD

Pastor TL Barrett & Youth For Christ Choir

Do Not Pass Me By – Vol 2
Universal Awareness/Numero, 1973. New Copy (reissue)
The even more obscure second volume to the great soul/gospel classic Do Not Pass Me By – and like the first, the product of a wonderfully spiritual setting on Chicago's south side – music created in the church, but with all the same vibe as the hippest secular soul coming from the Windy ... LP, Vinyl record album
Savoy/Honest Jons (UK), Late 50s/Early 60s. New Copy 2LP Gatefold
An insanely fantastic look at the strong legacy of gospel music from Savoy Records – a company who were initially a powerhouse in the fields of jazz and R&B, but who moved into the gospel world and dominated that market for decades! Savoy is a bit like Chess Records – a company who ... LP, Vinyl record album

Lamont Butler

It's Time For A Change
Blessed/Acid Jazz (UK), 1981. New Copy (reissue)
A rare bit of gospel from the Louisville scene at the start of the 80s – but a set that's also got plenty of secular soul appeal too – thanks in part to the righteous message in Lamont's lyrics, which would fit with some of the deeper sounds of 70s soul – and thanks also to the ... LP, Vinyl record album
Stax/Craft, Early 70s. New Copy 2CD
An overdue look at a very cool record label – the short-lived Gospel Truth imprint, which was an outlet for the more spiritual side of Stax Records in the early 70s! The music is gospel, but often has plenty of the best Memphis soul elements of more popular Stax/Volt work of the time – ... CD
Gospel Friend, Late 30s/1940s/Early 50s. New Copy
Two decades' of work by Elder Charles Beck – a really important force in the early years of gospel music, and an artist who really helped link the music to more secular styles too! Beck plays both piano and trumpet – the latter quite a surprise, and is used here on early cuts to ... CD

Theotis Taylor

Brother Theotis Taylor
Mississippi, Mid 70s. New Copy
Rare material from Georgia singer Brother Theotis Taylor – one of those unique southern talents who work in a stripped-down mode that's equal parts gospel and blues – maybe more blues in structure, but definitely with a deeper spirit in the message! Taylor only issued a handful of ... LP, Vinyl record album

Lamont Butler

It's Time For A Change
Blessed/Acid Jazz (UK), 1981. New Copy
A rare bit of gospel from the Louisville scene at the start of the 80s – but a set that's also got plenty of secular soul appeal too – thanks in part to the righteous message in Lamont's lyrics, which would fit with some of the deeper sounds of 70s soul – and thanks also to the ... CD

Elizabeth King & The Gospel Souls

D-Vine Spirituals Recordings
D-Vine/Bible & Tire, 1972. New Copy
A fantastic collection of work from Elizabeth King – a gospel singer who never reached the same sort of fame as singers who moved into the secular world – but one who's got a vocal power that would have made her a star, had she chosen such a move! The tunes here all feature King ... CD
Concord/Craft, 1950s/Early 60s. New Copy 3LP Gatefold
A fantastic collection of postwar gospel – one that really keeps the spirit of the "jukebox" in the title! The tunes here are all upbeat, and often share a lot with R&B material of the 50s – especially the vocal group numbers, which often echo more secular modes of early ... LP, Vinyl record album
Gospel Friend (Germany), Late 50s/Early 60s. New Copy
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 ... CD
Narroway (Sweden), 1940s/1950s/1960s. New Copy 3CD
An amazing legacy in gospel music – three decades' worth of tracks that feature just harmony vocals, no instrumentation at all – in a rich summation of all that the style brought to American music in mid century! Sure, there were some strong harmonies in 60s soul, 50s pop, and later ... CD
Narroway, 1950s/1960s. New Copy 2 CDs
A fantastic set of gospel tracks from the 50s and 60s – one that definitely takes the Civil Rights theme in the title seriously, but in ways that are often a bit more subtle than you might expect! Gospel music was key to the strivings of under-represented Americans during these years – ... CD
Fremeaux & Associates (France), Late 40s/1950s/Early 60s. New Copy 3CD
15 years' worth of recording from the Roberta Martin Singers – a groundbreaking gospel group from the postwar years, and one whose style helped set the tone for countless other acts to come! The group mixed male and female singers, but in a way that often still held to the smaller quintet or ... CD

San Francisco Christian Center Choir

Sound of the San Francisco Christian Center
Cultures Of Soul, Mid 70s. New Copy (reissue)
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 ... LP, Vinyl record album
Tompkins Square, Late 60s/Early 70s. New Copy
A really fantastic collection of rare gospel music – one that's put together with a fair bit of thought, and a great deal of love – even more than most other collections of the music that we usually get our hands on! The selection of songs is as thoughtful as the long, well-crafted ... LP, Vinyl record album
Numero, Late 60s. New Copy (reissue)
A beautiful batch of gospel work from Shirley Ann Lee – a vocalist who originally worked the spiritual circuit in a trio with Candi Staton! The album's an unusual one – put together partly as a way of promoting Shirley's music to a larger audience – which means it's got a few ... LP, Vinyl record album

Morning Echoes Of Detroit

Echoes Of The Gospel (180 gram pressing)
Nashboro/Third Man, 1967. New Copy (reissue)
A gem of a gospel set from the legendary Nashboro catalog – crafted by a very hip male sextet from Detroit – one who are clearly open to letting a lot of blues and soul influences into their music! One of the key elements from those styles here is spare but strong use of guitar or ... LP, Vinyl record album

Reverend Sam Dixon

My Soul Says Yes
Samdy/Asherah, Late 70s. New Copy (reissue)
A gospel record, but one that lets you know that there's something different going on from the very first note – which seems to be the kind of sound you'd expect more from a blacksploitation soundtrack than any kind of album cooked up in a church! That difference hangs on throughout the ... LP, Vinyl record album
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

San Francisco Christian Center Choir
