Yes it’s late, yes it’s gospel. Clue: if you don’t like gospel then you probably won’t like this much.
However if you do then you’re in for a treat, especially if you’ve not heard this before. Released in '71and featuring an ‘amateur’ choir recorded pretty much live in the church, this album makes a strong feature of classic call and response vocals, and the dynamic rush of the choir really giving it the full beans. Add in some funky bass and piano groove and you can see why it’s been sampled by Kanye and Alicia Keyes amongst others.
It’s just been reissued on vinyl and sounds majestic with the volume up and when they’re in full flow.
Just found a bit of a write up from last year here -
Could someone add a Spotify link too please?
