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

Dust To Digital, Late 20s. New Copy CD & Book
Other-worldly sounds from Washington Phillips – an artist you might consider as an early force in gospel music, but one who has a style that's all his own! Washington sings alongside his own music on zither – notes that have a ringing, cascading vibe that's almost heavenly, but handled ... CD

Checker/Righteous (UK), 1966. New Copy
CD...$3.99 13.99
One of the most soulful gospel albums ever issued by Chess – the debut of singer Martha Bass, and a set that can almost stand up to other 60s label classics by artists like Mitty Collier or Fontella Bass! Gene Barge handles the arrangements, and things are nice and lean – just a bit of ... CD

Narroway, 1960s. New Copy 2CD
A soaring set of spiritual sides from the LA scene of the 60s – underground gospel material from the tiny Proverb Records label, and related imprint Gospel Corner! Both companies were helmed by Brother Henderson – a producer with a strong ear to the ground, especially for the sorts of ... 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 ...

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 ... LP, Vinyl record album

Mississippi, Late 20s/1930s/1940s/Early 50s. New Copy
A slew of vintage gospel material from the 78rpm generation – some of it with a definite country tinge, some of it a bit more bluesy – and all of it great! The package really lives up to the shellac-digging strengths of other compilations on Mississippi – and really opens us up ... LP, Vinyl record album

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

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

Archeophone, Early 1900s. New Copy 3CD & book
Ghostly sounds from the earliest days of the 78rpm recording – a time when American evangelism was on the rise, and the new sonic format turned out to have as much social power as the flaming sword of the Lord! The music here was all recorded in the 1890s – some under studio guidance ... CD

Essential, 1950s/1960s/Early 70s. New Copy
A gospel collection without much in the way of notes – but one that focuses on our favorite side of the music – that great group harmony sound that was such an influence on soul music over the years, and which maybe found it's first initial outlet in these sounds from the spirit! Most ... CD

Groovin With Jesus

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 ... CD

O'Neal Twins
Shelter, 1974. Very Good
Righteous soul from the duo of Edgar and Edward O'Neal – a pair of deep-voiced twins with a really magnificent sound! The album's produced by Leon Russell – who also plays organ and clavinet on the session – and it's got the soaringly spiritual quality of some of the best work on ... LP, Vinyl record album
