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


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
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
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

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

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

Reverend Sam Dixon

My Soul Says Yes
Samdy/Asherah, Late 70s. New Copy
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 ... CD
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

Elizabeth King & The Gospel Souls

D-Vine Spirituals Recordings
D-Vine/Bible & Tire, 1972. New Copy
CD...$9.99 14.99
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

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
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
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

Reverend Sam Dixon

My Soul Says Yes
Samdy/Asherah, Late 70s. New Copy (reissue)

That difference hangs on throughout the ... 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
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
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
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 ... CD
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
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
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

Supreme Jubilees

It'll All Be Over
S&K/Light In The Attic, 1980. New Copy
CD...$6.99 15.98
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
