Incredibly groovy pop from The Five Americans – heard here on the group's third record, which may well be their best so far! The Fives have an approach to psychedelic pop that's way better than most of their contemporaries – a way of taking organ, guitar, and vocal harmonies together without any roughness – yet also still doing so in a way that doesn't sand down the rough edges into silly softness. The mix is hard to describe accurately – mostly because it's so simply crafted and musically subtle – but we'd easily rank The Five Americans up there with some of the best of their era, even if their work is a lot lesser-known! Titles include "Con Man", "Stop Light", "Zip Code", "Evol Not Love", "Somebody Help Me", and "Black Is White Day Is Night". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ VariousSoul Don't Worry – Black Gospel During The Civil Rights Era – 1953 to 1967 ... CD
Narroway, 1950s/1960s. New Copy 2 CDs ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A fantastic set of gospel tracks from the 50s and 60s – one that definitely takes the Civil Rights theme in the title seriously, but in ways that are often a bit more subtle than you might expect! Gospel music was key to the strivings of under-represented Americans during these years – as the music was a place of rich cultural expression and unbridled righteousness – maybe a more spiritual place to express messages that would soon have more secular orientation, but no less force overall! The work here really helps you hear how more directly political soul music found its voice in the second half of the 60s – and the work often has group vocal interplay that rivals some of the best of the soul generation. Titles include "I'll Fight For The Right" by JM Bell & The Robinson Ensemble, "What Is Freedom" by Friendly Four, "I Cried" by Five Blind Boys Of Alabama, "I'm Watching & Waiting" by Myrtle Jackson, "Stand By Me" by Marie Knight, "Traveling To That City" by Harold Bowen Singers, "Take Courage" by Rosie Wallace, "I Heard The Voice" by Wooten Choral Ensemble, "Soon We'll Be Done" by Utterback Concert Ensemble, "Viet Nam" by Southern Bells, and "I'm Going To Walk Through The Streets" by Melody Kings. 27 tracks in all!
