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


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
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
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
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
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
Groovin With Jesus
Checker/Safety Zone, Early 70s. New Copy
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
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
Light In The Attic, 1990. New Copy
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 ... 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
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
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
Essential, 1950s/1960s/Early 70s. New Copy
CD...$5.99 14.99
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
Panola Country Spirit
Daptone, 2016. New Copy
