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


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
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
Concord/Craft, 1950s/Early 60s. New Copy 2CD
A fantastic collection of postwar gospel – one that really keeps the spirit of the "jukebox" in the title! The tunes here are all upbeat, and often share a lot with R&B material of the 50s – especially the vocal group numbers, which often echo more secular modes of early ... CD
Night At The House Of Prayer
Buked & Scorned, Early 60s. New Copy
Fantastic work from Reverend Lonnie Farris – one of the key proponents of "sacred steel" guitar – the use of the mostly-country instrument in the setting of soulful gospel! Farris works the instrument in ways that are sometimes familiar, sometimes almost more like the use of ... LP, Vinyl record album
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

Think About It
ABC/Peacock, 1976. Near Mint-
A gospel album, but a pretty hip one – with a really rootsy soul feel, and even a bit of 70s funk on a few tracks. Tessie's got a great voice, kind of like Cissy Drinkard, and the album follows very strongly in the Peacock soul/gospel tradition. Titles include "Go Before Me", ... LP, Vinyl record album

Pavillion, Late 60s. Very Good+

Children Get Together
Buddah, 1971. Very Good Gatefold
The full Edwins Hawkins sound in full effect – lots of backing singers supporting a righteous lead – all in a style that's arguably a lot more soul than gospel! The Hawkins group was one of the best to crossover from gospel to soul at the time, and they still do it better than most of ... LP, Vinyl record album
