Dedicated Men Of Zion

The Devil Don't Like It
Bible & Tire, 2022. New Copy
A really fantastic album from the Dedicated Men Of Zion – a contemporary gospel group, but one who work here with small combo backings that take us back to some of our favorite records of the early 70s – a tremendous blend of spiritual message and very down-to-earth arrangements! The ... LP, Vinyl record album

Staples Jr Singers

When Do We Get Paid
Brenda/Luaka Bop, 1975. New Copy (reissue)
A lost gospel treasure from this obscure Mississippi group – cut in the mid 70s, but with a stripped-down sound that's completely timeless overall! The Staples Jr Singers certainly have picked up some of the more righteous currents of mainstream soul and funk at the time – echoed both ... LP, Vinyl record album
Luaka Bop, 2022. New Copy
Pastor Wiley Champion is a gospel singer with a hell of a voice – the sort that could have instantly made him a huge soul singer, if he ever chose to leave his faith – but which is maybe even more powerful here directed towards a spiritual sort of setting! The album's a very lean ... CD
JCR/Bible & Tire, Early 70s. New Copy
Rare gospel gems that go way past the usual – tracks recorded for the small JCR label in Memphis during the 70s, but done with a stripped-down vibe that's much more like postwar gospel overall! Most of the acts here are pretty darn obscure – groups that were inspired by the spirit and ... CD
Designer/Big Legal Mess, 1960s. New Copy 4 CDs
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 ... CD
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
Westbound (UK), Late 70s/Early 80s. New Copy
CD...$9.99 18.99
A long-overdue look at the amazing Clark Sisters – a fantastic gospel group, and one with a vocal depth that we'd put right up there next to any of our favorite soul acts of the time! The Clarks are maybe best known for their landmark track "You Brought The Sunshine" – a ... CD

George Hines & The Gospel Winds

Moving Up
King/Gusto, Early 70s. New Copy
Great 70s gospel from George Hines & The Gospel Winds – but a set that's recorded with much more of an old school vibe overall! The interplay between lead and group vocals really takes us back to some of the best male groups of the postwar years – that time when gospel vocal ... CD
Numero, Early 70s. New Copy 5CD
A tremendous package of work from this overlooked soul and gospel legend – four classic albums, plus other rare material too – all packaged with detailed notes in the wonderful Numero Group style! First up is Like A Ship Without A Sail – a gospel album from Pastor TL Barrett, but ... CD
Numero, Early 70s. New Copy 5LP
A tremendous package of work from this overlooked soul and gospel legend – four classic albums, plus other rare material too – all packaged with detailed notes in the wonderful Numero Group style! First up is Like A Ship Without A Sail – a gospel album from Pastor TL Barrett, but ... LP, Vinyl record album
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
Light In The Attic, 1990. New Copy
Raw and riveting gospel-folk-soul from Johnnie Frierson – only ever issued as a self-released cassette before this vital re-discovery by Light In The Attic! Johnnie is one of the vital, though relatively unknown voices in the Stax/Volt universe, working with a his sister Wendy Rene and in the ... LP, Vinyl record album
Gospel Friend (Germany), Late 40s/Early 50s. New Copy 2CDs
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 ... 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
Luaka Bop, 1970s. New Copy Gatefold
Maybe the coolest record ever put out by the Luaka Bop label – and that's really saying a lot, given all the amazing albums they've given us over the years! The set's a perfect musical tonic for the times – a set of underground singles from the 70s, most of which fall in a space ... LP, Vinyl record album
Luaka Bop, 2022. New Copy
Pastor Wiley Champion is a gospel singer with a hell of a voice – the sort that could have instantly made him a huge soul singer, if he ever chose to leave his faith – but which is maybe even more powerful here directed towards a spiritual sort of setting! The album's a very lean ... LP, Vinyl record album
Gospel Roots/Honest Jons (UK), Late 70s. New Copy 2LP Gatefold
A really really beautiful little compilation – one with a sound that's every bit as powerful as the image on its cover! The music here all comes from the Gospel Roots label of Miami soul powerhouse TK Records – a key force in mainstream soul in the 70s, but also a company who issued ... 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

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
D-Vine/Bible & Tire, 1970s. New Copy
A stunning overview of work from the small D-Vine Spirituals label in Memphis – a really homegrown imprint who were as important to the sound of the city's spiritual music as Stax Records was to soul in the 60s! In fact, the vibe here is often more 60s than 70s – maybe a testament to ... LP, Vinyl record album

Gospel Friend, 1950s/Early 60s. New Copy
A huge look at the early career of the great Alex Bradford – one of gospel music's rising stars in the 60s, thanks to recordings for Vee Jay and Atlantic – but heard here on an assortment of small label singles from the years before! Even at the start, Bradford has something special ... CD
JCR/Bible & Tire, Early 70s. New Copy
Rare gospel gems that go way past the usual – tracks recorded for the small JCR label in Memphis during the 70s, but done with a stripped-down vibe that's much more like postwar gospel overall! Most of the acts here are pretty darn obscure – groups that were inspired by the spirit and ... LP, Vinyl record album
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

Jewell Gospel Trio

Many Little Angels In The Band
Gospel Friend (Germany), Mid 50s. New Copy
An essential collection of rare material by this important female gospel trio of the 50s – a group who's not only known for bringing a style to the music that was ever bit as great as male group gospel of the pre-soul years – but who also are the initial early home to later soul ... CD
Nashboro/Third Man, 1950s/Early 60s. New Copy
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 ... 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
JCR/Bible & Tire, Early 70s. New Copy
A treasure trove of rare and unusual gospel recordings from the Memphis scene – work done for the tiny JCR imprint of the also-tiny D-Vine Records label – a real wellspring of under-discovered talent from the south! JCR was kind of the bush league for D-Vine – a custom label that ... LP, Vinyl record album

Supreme Jubilees

It'll All Be Over
S&K/Light In The Attic, 1980. New Copy
A gospel album from the end of the 70s, but a set that works equally well as a soul album too – thanks to the beautiful presentation of the grooves and the vocals! The vibe here is often laidback – more in a mellow Marvin Gaye sort of mode – surprisingly slinky and sexy for such ... CD

Staples Jr Singers

When Do We Get Paid
Brenda/Luaka Bop, 1975. New Copy
A lost gospel treasure from this obscure Mississippi group – cut in the mid 70s, but with a stripped-down sound that's completely timeless overall! The Staples Jr Singers certainly have picked up some of the more righteous currents of mainstream soul and funk at the time – echoed both ... CD
Bible & Tire/Fat Possum, 2021. New Copy 2LPGatefold
A fantastic little session of gospel music – contemporary work, but done in the same sort of "field trip" style of recording that takes us back to Alan Lomax and some of the great southern projects of the postwar years! In this case, the music all comes from a studio in Fountain, ... LP, Vinyl record album
JCR/Bible & Tire, Early 70s. New Copy
A treasure trove of rare and unusual gospel recordings from the Memphis scene – work done for the tiny JCR imprint of the also-tiny D-Vine Records label – a real wellspring of under-discovered talent from the south! JCR was kind of the bush league for D-Vine – a custom label that ... CD

Bishop Manning & The Manning Family

Converted Mind – The Early Recordings
Fat Possum/Big Legal Mess, 1970s. New Copy
Amazing stuff from the Converted Mind of Bishop Manning and his family! Manning was a former down & dirty blues singer who was changed forever byThe Good Word in the early 60s – and the lived in realness of these recordings certainly suggests a blues pedigree. It's completely wonderful, ... CD

Campbell Brothers

Love Supreme
FLI, 2021. New Copy
A really unique take on the music of John Coltrane's Love Supreme – served up here in a sacred steel style by the Campbell Brothers, on a set recorded live in Amsterdam just before the passing of brother Darick Campbell! Here, Darick plays lap steel next to pedal steel from Chuck Campbell ... CD

Johnny Ray Daniels

Whatever You Need
Bible & Tire, 2022. New Copy
Soulful, spiritual sounds from North Carolina legend Johnny Ray Daniels – an artist who started out in soul, but soon found gospel more to his liking – then went on to create a decades-long legacy of wonderful music like this! The album's contemporary, but given a very old school ... LP, Vinyl record album

Henry Jackson Company
Truth/Stax, 1973. Very Good+
A wonderful bit of gospel soul from Stax – a lost gem that's as great as anything the Truth subsidiary of the label ever issued! Gene Page and Gene Barge handled the arrangements and production for the record, and it's got a smooth 70s soul sound that reminds us a bit of the Voices Of East ... LP, Vinyl record album
