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


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
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
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
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
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
Gospel Roots/Honest Jons (UK), Late 70s. New Copy 2LP Gatefold
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 ... LP, Vinyl record album
Gospel Friend (Germany), Late 50s/Early 60s. New Copy
Fantastic work from the Gospelaires – a group from Dayton, Ohio – but one who recorded most of the music here down in Houston – where they issued some tremendous singles for the Peacock label! The group are incredible – and sing with a hard-edged frenzy that's maybe more ... 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
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
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

It's Time
ABC, 1974. Very Good
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 ... LP, Vinyl record album
