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


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

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 ... CD
Westbound (UK), Late 70s/Early 80s. New Copy
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

Various

Sun Gospel
Sun/Bear Family (Germany), 1950s/Early 60s. New Copy
Gospel genius from the legendary Sun Records – an imprint usually associated with the earliest roots of rockabilly, but also a Memphis powerhouse that managed to capture a number of different styles surprisingly well during the 50s! Sun had one of its big early hits with The Prisonaires ... CD
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

Singing Southern Echos Of Memphis

Somebody Touched Me (180 gram pressing)
Designer/Big Legal Mess, 1960s/1970s. New Copy
Soul stirring group gospel from the Singing Southern Echos Of Memphis (it's spelled 'Echos' on the spine, folks) – with soaring lead and spirited backing vocals form this Memphis combo! We're not sure of the recorded vintage, but it's wonderful stuff – ranging from slow rolling ... LP, Vinyl record album
Designer/Big Legal Mess, 1960s. New Copy (reissue)
Nothing too stylish here – as Designer Records is a small indie gospel imprint, home to a surprisingly great batch of work! The collection reminds us a lot of some of the titles we've been loving from Mississippi Records – as it features gospel work that goes past the usual, often with ... LP, Vinyl record album
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
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

Sister Rosetta Tharpe

Shout Sister Shout
Sunset Blvd, Late 40s/Late 50s/1960s. New Copy 2CDs
A fantastic overview of the later genius of Sister Rosetta Tharpe – a key figure in the development of rock, soul, and a number of other styles from that key midcentury moment in American music! Tharpe's a singer with a voice that influenced Aretha Franklin and other female soul artists ... 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
Nashboro/Gospel Friend, 1950s/Early 60s. New Copy
The first full length collection we've ever seen to focus on the soulful gospel work of Harold Boggs – one of the greatest male lead singers of the pre-soul generation! Right from the start, Boggs was a hell of a singer, and a great songwriter too – and he first entered the business ... CD
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, 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

Harlem Gospel Travelers

He's On Time
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 ... CD

Mighty Clouds Of Joy

Kickin
ABC/Safety Zone, 1975. Used
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 ... CD
