Ok, so this should have been posted up already, but it is here now:

Posted Image
Namomi Shelton and the Gospel Quees "What have you Done? - I'll take the Long Road" 2009 on Daptone records.

Damnnnnn is this good music, Daptone is by far one of the best labels around today. Everything about this single and the long player that it's off smack of classic early 70's Funk Gospel. Her backing band has some of the cats from the Dap Kings (of course) but some vets from the hey day that played with Wilson Pickett and even James Brown's bassist, yup. Honestly a lot of the Funk and Soul that is coming out today that is supposed to have that old school feel to it, good as it may be, just doesn't come with that old school vibe, for many reasons. But this joint does. Much to do with her raw vocals, simply has that good Soul vibe to it that will make you feel whats going on here. Will have to say that this is a must buy for all Soul Funk Gospel heads.

Just the day job, summer's coming around and talent comes in the summer. So do hours, I was A, though the monitor mix got a little messy cuz I mixed to background vocalist's mics, he was towards the end, Beverly Crawford was the final act. The show went on over 12 hours. 12 hours of standing, on my toes, bouncing back and forth between drummers, keyboardists, percussionists and guitarists. The rental company's bass head blew out towards the end. Shit was live, I saw some woman praying so hard she was speaking in tounges and rolling her eyes on stage, black people were throwing their umbrellas up in the air as they camped out and white people kept covering thier ears trying to get between Ghost Rider and the Log Ride. That was fun but tough having to please so many professional gospel bands instantly with minimum sound check. You guys ever heard of a Jimmy Williams? Guitarist/song writer? He was dope, like two different people 10 seconds before performing. He had this nervous smirk, then he exploded on his mic and DI. Inspiring young dude.

^ sounds like a fun time overall, lotta work.

Here's something I finally got my hands on:

Posted Image
The New York Community Choir "Express Yourself - Have a Good Time" 12" 1977 on RCA.

This 12" is off their self titled LP. This is a classic Gospel Disco cut right here. Both cuts are popping with nice snapping drums and fat bass lines. Nothing cliche about these cuts, full tilt Disco with Gospel mixed in, makes ya happy to hear this sh!t, gotta get on the good foot while this is pounding! Some might be more familiar with the work that they did backing up Nikki Giovanni, but they put out numerous quality albums. When you come across either this 12" or LP pick it up.

The Prophets "Hooked on Gospel" 1985 on I Am Records

Here's something for the Modern Soul/Boogie/Gospel heads. Came across a couple sealed copies of this recently, had to crack open this one, had seen this cover before, but couldn't remember where/when sort of shit. Usually these mid 80's Gospel joints are difficult for me to get through, usually really shitty attempts to similate the terrible pop music of the time. Well oddly enough this is the sort of the same, but it's simply done better. The whole album has that slap pull funk bass in the line of Rick James which is very nice, smooth full sounding R&B style production, lots of synth work on every track and one track even has some mid 80's obligatory rapping thrown in. A few tracks are old standards, all done though with a unique style. Just as some Gospel joints in the late 60's and throughout the 70's would cut a album emulating the current sounds of the time, this one does the same for the mid 80's. This being the case I can see why certain Modern Soul/Boogie heads lookout for this album. I don't know anything about this label, it seems too well done to have been some one-off label, so I'm guessing that there's at least a small catalog for it which I'm going to be on the look out for, odds are there are some other cuts with this sound on it.

Here's a nice cut I recently picked up for the store: Elder J. Ward and The Gospel Four "A Change is Gonna Come" on the D-Vine Spirituals label out of Memphis Tenn, flip side is: "Sinner's Prayer". Great version of A Change, Sinner's Prayer is a good bluesy/R&B cut with a great message. Feelin it!!

Bought this album from someone who's also active here (together with some other funk-soul-jazz-gospel records), really enjoying it!
I'll try to post some more gospel uploads in the next weeks.

Here's a cut off a dope LP:


The Gospelaires of Dayton, Ohio, "I can depend on Jesus" off the "You can depend on Jesus" LP, Savoy 14433, year: 1977.

From beginning to end fabulous harmonizing and falsetto vocal work with a rock solid R&B grooving back up. Feelin' it and recommending it!

lotsa great cuts here, but most are from the 70's! I went though an intense phase of gospel a few years ago, and a lot of the stuff I dug the most was 30's, 40's, and 50's joints from the likes of the Golden Gates Quartet, The Dixieaires, and the Swan Silvertones among others. Obviously way more focus on vocal harmonies than on funky guitar groove, but the stuff really blew me away and I still keep those guys in rotation. Anybody have any good pre-60's suggestions to throw in the mix?

I would say all early Gospel on Vee Jay, such as the early Staple Singers would fit the bill for you nicely, the first couple Staple Singers albums are so damn good, I usually just stop everything and listen to them like 3 or 4 times, usually on headphones. The Paramount label put out good early Gospel on 78's. I think you'll going to have to hit 78's to find a lot of that sound that you're looking for. I have some older Gospel cuts that are of the true spiritual variety, I'll try to post a few up, really haunting vocals, good ish.

Here's a solid 70's cut:


The Pilgrim Jubilee Singers "Pray for Peace" off the "Now & Forever" LP, Nashboro 7181 pressing, year: 1977.

Fantastic R&B Funk on this ablum from start to finish. Some really good harmonizing vocals and golden production work.

Posted up couple new cuts: These two are from a super rare LP on the Sonic label, the LP is cool, all over the place from straight spirituals to modern soul/boogie to jazzy funk.

I guess there is a limit to how many videos you can put into a post? Did not know that, any how....

Here is some choir action. Normally I don't really get down with choirs, NY seems to have more disco/boogie oriented choir albums, but not so much here in the Midwest. But this one has some serious haunting vocal work, deep, soul searching ish going on. But I guess that's the point, right?

Nice! Never seen those two, nice difference in styles too. I'm a bit surprised I haven't seen the Nashboro cut before being a IL joint, will be on the hunt for that one for sure!
