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


Narroway, 1960s. New Copy 2CD
A soaring set of spiritual sides from the LA scene of the 60s – underground gospel material from the tiny Proverb Records label, and related imprint Gospel Corner! Both companies were helmed by Brother Henderson – a producer with a strong ear to the ground, especially for the sorts of ... CD
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

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
Daptone, 2013. New Copy
CD...$8.99 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
Daptone, 2008. New Copy
CD...$8.99 14.99
The most directly soul shaking album yet from Daptone Records – acapella gospel soul recorded live at Mt Mariah Church in Como, Mississippi – rootsy beauty sung by Mary Moore, The John Edwards Singers, Brother And Sister Walker, Como Mamas, Irene Stevenson and others! In a way, Como ... 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
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
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 ...

Gospel Truth, 1973. Sealed
... LP, Vinyl record album
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
Edwin Hawkins Singers Live
Buddah, 1972. Near Mint-
Wonderfully righteous work from Edwin Hawkins and the group – a set that's supposedly recorded live, but which has the clarity and closeness of a studio set! If anything, there's almost a smaller soul group feel here than some of Edwin's other work of the time – a sound that's quite ... LP, Vinyl record album
