Excello/Ace (UK), Early 50s. New Copy
A treasure trove of gospel from one of the greatest labels in the business – the early Excello Records, which later morphed into gospel powerhouse Nashboro, but already had a great ear for the best of the genre right from the start! Excello's roots in the south gave it key access to some of ... CD

Light In The Attic, Early 90s. New Copy Gatefold
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!

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

Peacock/Shout (UK), 1950s/1964. New Copy
CD...$5.99 13.99
Dynamic gospel soul from the Five Blind Boys Of Mississippi – featuring tracks from 2 incredible Peacock LPs, tunes that were cut throughout the 50s and in 1964 – back to back on a great CD! The first 11 tracks of the CD features all of the numbers from the 1964 LP Father I Stretch My ... CD

MCA, 2000s. New Copy
Glorious gospel soul from Mighty Clouds Of Joy – with some great live material and studio recordings from later years – truly joyous and soulful in the truest sense! The live material is especially wonderful, as the group really works best with an audience of believers to soak it all in. ... 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 ...

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

Panola Country Spirit
Daptone, 2016. New Copy
Maybe the best title so far in the Como, MS series from Daptone Records – a very earthy, very rootsy set of harmony vocals sung by the Walker Family Singers – a group headed up by sometime Sam Cooke backing singer Raymond Walker! Yet the music here is quite far from the Cooke reference ... CD

It's Time
ABC/Safety Zone, 1974. New Copy
A landmark blend of gospel spirit and 70s soul – and one of the greatest moments ever from The Mighty Clouds Of Joy! Like so many other soul artists before them, these guys have voices that are steeped in the best traditions of gospel – but rather than giving up their roots and going ... CD

Kickin
ABC/Safety Zone, 1975. New Copy
CD...$8.99 13.98
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

Daptone, 2013. Near Mint-
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 ... LP, Vinyl record album

Motown, 1971. Very Good-
A very hip gospel album from Motown – clearly designed to cash in on the success of Edwin Hawkins and other crossover artists of the time – and a unique project that features Motown stars (plus a few lesser-knowns) singing spiritual tunes with a very righteous 70s edge! The "rock&q ... LP, Vinyl record album

Togetherness
Veep, Late 60s. Very Good+
With a name like the Jubilators, it's gotta be gospel – but with a title like Togetherness, it's also gotta be that hip kind of late 60s gospel that was borrowing a lot back from soul music – or a least the core elements that soul had been taking from gospel during the course of the 60s. ...
