An ingenious piece of crate-digging has exhumed this real treasure. Recorded in 1971 by a 27 year old pastor and a school-initiative choir, Like A Ship… (Without A Sail) was a haunting rumination on the aftermath of the Civil Rights Movement, and was sampled by the mighty Kanye West subsequently.

9/10 Andy Pye 5th May 2014

An LP that had been on the 'list' for some time LITA is such a great label. Sunday night's are pretty much wind down and i clicked on to a friends radio show and the first track on was 'Like a Ship' pure Gospel Soul you dont need a second invitation once your ears have heard the opening notes. Sure enough i logged on Norman had it in i ordered it and it was on my desk by Tuesday first class service. If you like the sound of it i have a weekly show have a listen you might just find records you like Andy
