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


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

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

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 ...

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
Savoy/Honest Jons (UK), Late 70s/1980s. 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
Savoy/Honest Jons (UK), 1970s. New Copy 2LP
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
Savoy/Honest Jons (UK), Late 50s/Early 60s. New Copy 2LP Gatefold

Savoy is a bit like Chess Records – a company who ... LP, Vinyl record album
Kent (UK), Late 60s/Early 70s. New Copy
The lost gospel music legacy of Detroit producer Dave Hamilton – a key force in funk and soul in the Motor City in the 60s – where he developed an amazing sound that he also brought to his spiritual recordings as well! Dave's approach was always grittier than that of Motown or some of ... CD

Reverend Douglas Bell & The Stage Cruisers

Nuclear Blast (180 gram vinyl)
Big Legal Mess/Fat Possum, 1960s. New Copy
Raw and rumbling gospel sounds from the Designer Records vaults – real and resonant southern gospel from Reverend Douglas Bell & Th Stage Cruisers! Heavy vocals & sermonizing with swirling organ and wailing keyboards along with the impassioned vocals. As with the material on the ... 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
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

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
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
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
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

Great work from one of the coolest gospel groups on Vee Jay! LP, Vinyl record album
Columbia, 1971. Sealed 2LP Gatefold

Rev Jasper Williams

I Fell In Love With A Prostitute
Church Door, Early 70s. Sealed
If the title's enough, this one would be a hit! Overall, though, the record's mostly a gospel sermon – done by Williams along the lines of the topic in the title. There's some pretty nice moments when he's letting loose a bit, and by side two, the speaking's turned a bit more to singing ... LP, Vinyl record album

Marion Williams

Gospel Now
Cotillion, 1971. Sealed
The title's an apt one, as Marion's taking gospel to the sound of "now" – working with arranger/producer Robert Banks, and a musical lineup that includes vibes, organ, and guitar. The overall feel isn't as totally hip as some of her other work, but it's definitely got an Atlantic ... LP, Vinyl record album

New Jersey Mass Choir

I Want To Know What Love Is
Prelude, 1985. Near Mint-
Strange to see a gospel album on the mostly-disco Prelude label – but the album's a good one, with a strong modern soul approach, similar to crossover work from the time by The Clark Sisters. The closest to the usual Prelude groove is the cut "Shine A Light", which has a righteous ... LP, Vinyl record album
