Pleased to have our 2016/17 release Shout Music featured and reviewed in last week's Bandcamp Daily article This World is Just a Dressing Room: A Guide to Gospel on Bandcamp by Noah Berlatsky. Here is our review:
“Angel Olsen bassist Emily Elhaj compiled this collection of classic gospel when she was a record buyer for Reckless Records in Chicago in 2010, and released it on her Love Lion label in 2017. The selection is eclectic, ranging from Sister O.M. Terrell’s country blues “I’m Going to That City” to the raucous ‘60s Indiana gospel sweat of Robert Turner & The Silver Hearts’ “I Choose Jesus.” The Loving 5, an obscure group clearly influenced by the Staple Singers, deliver some commanding funky harmony on “Singing for Jesus,” and Pastor T.L. Barrett of Chicago provides an example of the choir style that replaced smaller group performances in the ’60s with “Joyful Noise.” Best of all, there’s a track by Marion Williams, one of the greatest American singers who ever lived. Listen and hear where Little Richard got his “oooooooo!”
Big Thank You Bandcamp!
