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

Gospel Roots/Honest Jons (UK), Late 70s. New Copy
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 ... 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

Kickin
ABC/Safety Zone, 1975. New Copy
Kickin it is – as the album's way more than just the typical gospel you might expect – and is a perfect example of the way the Mighty Clouds Of Joy helped cross the bridge between secular and spiritual sounds in the 70s! The record has a groove that most other mainstream soul acts ... 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, 2013. New Copy
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 ... LP, Vinyl record album

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

Resting Easy
Checker, 1966. Very Good+
Sockin gospel soul from The Soul Stirrers – an album recorded with some distinct traces of the secular soul production of the Chess Chicago scene, and some great production by Gene Barge! In a way, the overall feel of the set is almost the same as the mid 60s work by The Impressions – ... LP, Vinyl record album
CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
Gospel Truth
Checker, 1967. Very Good
An excellent bit of gospel from this famous quintet – recorded at Chess with arrangements by Sonny Thompson that give the group a raw rollicking 60s soul feel. The harmonies are insanely great – and even if you don't dig the religious side of things, you can kick back and enjoy the ... LP, Vinyl record album

Tribute To Sam Cooke
Checker, Late 60s. Very Good
The Soul Stirrers pay tribute to Sam Cooke – once a member of their group, back in the days before he made the shift from gospel music to secular soul! As you might guess, the tribute focuses on gospel tunes that Sam sang with the Stirrers – redone here with strong 60s Chess gospel ... LP, Vinyl record album
