My Soul Says Yes
Samdy/Asherah, Late 70s. New Copy (reissue)
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 ... 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
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
King/Ace (UK), Late 40s/Early 50s. New Copy
A wonderful selection of work from gospel's "golden age" – the formative late 40s and early 50s years, when the music was first making it onto records in ways that it previously hadn't. At the time, the King label was home to some of the freshest blues and R&B artists of the ... 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! Johnnie is one of the vital, though relatively unknown voices in the Stax/Volt universe, working with a his sister Wendy Rene and in the ... CD

Praise Him
ALA, 1979. Very Good
Wonderful work from Julius Brockington – an artist that we know best from his early 70s funk albums, but who is working here in a gospel mode, with the Julius Brockington Ensemble – a very hip group of singers, with a righteous 70s approach to the music. The feel is almost in the mode ... LP, Vinyl record album

I'm So Grateful
Checker, 1966. Near Mint-
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 ... LP, Vinyl record album
