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


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

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

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
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

Como Mamas

Move Upstairs
Daptone, 2017. New Copy
LP...$9.99 18.99
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 ... LP, Vinyl record album
Colemine, 2019. New Copy
The fantastic full-length group of The Harlem Gospel Travelers – a quartet trained on the male group gospel modes of older acts like the Soul Stirrers or Violinaires – but one who really shine strongly with a voice of their own, thanks to a set of all original material, and some nice ... LP, Vinyl record album

Harlem Gospel Travelers

He's On Time

Elizabeth King & The Gospel Souls

D-Vine Spirituals Recordings
D-Vine/Bible & Tire, 1972. New Copy (reissue)
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 ... LP, Vinyl record album

Mighty Clouds Of Joy

Kickin
ABC, 1975. Sealed
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! The record has a groove that most other mainstream soul acts ... LP, Vinyl record album

Detroit Gospel Reissue Project, 1960s/Early 70s. Near Mint-
A deep deep dig into the Detroit gospel scene – one that goes way farther than the bigger work by artists like CL Franklin and his famous daughters – and which instead looks at the wealth of work circulating on labels that mostly only issued 45rpm recordings! The music here is ... LP, Vinyl record album

Capitol, Late 60s. Very Good
Beautiful work from the Art Reynolds Singers – a group that, for our money, was the best-ever crossing of soul and spiritual vocals!

People's Choir Of Operation Push
Truth/Stax, 1973. Near Mint-
A gospel album, to be sure, but also one with a pretty darn hip sound – as it's directed by Reverand Marvin Yancy (of The Independents, a group that featured Jesse Jackson's brother Chuck), and arrangements by Gene Barge, who did a lot of hip work for Chess/Cadet.
