Like A Ship (Without A Sail)
Mt Zion/Numero, 1971. New Copy (reissue)
A soul record we'd put up there with some of our favorites produced in Chicago during the early 70s – a gospel album from Pastor TL Barrett, but one that's gone on to legendary status among funk and soul collectors over the years! Barrett works here with his Youth For Christ Choir, of Mt. ... LP, Vinyl record album
Move Upstairs
Daptone, 2017. New Copy
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 ... CD
Gospel Friend, Late 40s/Early 50s. New Copy
A legendary gospel quintet, and one who sing with the same sort of vocal interplay you'd hear from the best doo wop groups of the time – presented here in a killer collection of work from their formative early years – including tracks that feature later famous solo stars like Lou Rawls, ... CD
Do Not Pass Me By
Gospel Roots, 1976. New Copy (reissue)
A stone classic from this famous Chicago spiritual leader of the 70s – and an album that's got a nice balance between intimate soul numbers and larger tracks that have the whole Mount Zion Baptist Church along for support! The set's definitely got the strongly soulful vibe of Barrett's Like ... LP, Vinyl record album
Don't Let The Devil Ride
Detroit Gospel Reissue Project, Mid 70s. New Copy
Totally wonderful work from this obscure Detroit group – a quintet of very young gospel singers, and one that gets some wicked work on electric guitar as well! The music has a vibe that's every bit what you'd expect from the cover – very raw, and at-home – with that guy on his ... LP, Vinyl record album
HOB/Caroline, 1970s. New Copy 2 CDs
Maybe not the deepest roots of gospel, but an excellent collection of killer cuts from the catalog of Hob Records – one of the coolest labels from back in the day! Most of these tracks are of 70s vintage, and have a style that draws heavily on secular soul currents of the time, while letting ... CD
Night At The House Of Prayer
Buked & Scorned, Early 60s. New Copy
Fantastic work from Reverend Lonnie Farris – one of the key proponents of "sacred steel" guitar – the use of the mostly-country instrument in the setting of soulful gospel! Farris works the instrument in ways that are sometimes familiar, sometimes almost more like the use of ... LP, Vinyl record album
Detroit Gospel Reissue Project, 1976. New Copy (reissue)
A fierce and firey sermon from the Detroit scene of the 70s – served up by Reverend Jodie Holmes with a fair bit of inspiration and accompaniment from other members of his congregation! The album's got a much rootsier feel than bigger-label gospel recordings of this nature – recorded ... LP, Vinyl record album
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
Move Upstairs
Daptone, 2017. New Copy
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 ... CD
Gospel Roots/Honest Jons (UK), Late 70s. New Copy
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 ... CD
Daptone, 2013. New Copy
CD...$5.99 14.99
Rootsy gospel from The Como Mamas – a tremendous trio of female singers, working here in an all-acapella mode that's completely sublime! The set's an offshoot of the Como Now project done by Daptone a few years ago, and has the same timeless feel – quite a difference from the heavy ... CD
