This is good. It’s a collection of gospel performances from the 1960s and ‘70s culled from old dusty 7” records. Opener ‘This May Be The Last Time’ by Missionary Mamie Sample is a stunner, sounding not unlike that tune Moby sampled to make his millions but real and heartfelt.
Even better is The Skylifters ‘You Better Mind’ which sounds like James Brown jamming with ‘Nixon’-era Lambchop and recording the whole thing on an ancient phonograph. My other favourite is Rev R Henderson’s ‘Stop Living On Me’ which features a scattershot guitar style, vocals mumbled low in the mix all done in a lo-fi style with background noises as if it was recorded live at an impromptu performance. It really is drop dead superb. There’s the odd screech here and there, plenty of mentions of the lord but theres at least three incredible songs here that just have to be heard.
