Gospel Roots, 1976-79

Utterly magnificent, sublimely soulful survey of the Gospel Roots label,
subsidiary of the mighty TK Records at the height of the Miami Sound.

Choral belters, deep ballads, harmony quartets, epic city-blues, gritty funk, powerhouse female soul…
Killer-diller Philly like a scorching version of Harold Melvin & The Blue Notes’ Wake Up Everybody;
and Jean Austin’s raw Spirit Free, co-written by Ronnie Dyson, produced by Jesse James at Future Gold.
Chicago Sound like The Fantastic Family Aires — named after the family’s furniture store on North Cicero,
but reminiscent of the Staple Singers at their best — through to the full-blown glory of The Fountain Of Life Joy Choir,
led by Marvin Yancy from The Independents, and featuring Natalie Cole…
Singers like Versie Mae Gibson, from the Jordans, by rights up there with Irma, Etta and Ree…
Bangers 100%-guaranteed to find their way into Theo Parrish sets;
and mortal delirium for the prissiest of soul and gospel purists.


Ein großartiger, gefühlvoller Überblick über das Label Gospel Roots,
einer Tochtergesellschaft des mächtigen TK Records auf dem Höhepunkt des Miami Sound.

Chorgesänge, tiefgründige Balladen, Harmoniequartette, epischer City-Blues, düsterer Funk, kraftvoller weiblicher Soul...
Killer-Diller Philly wie eine glühende Version von Harold Melvin & The Blue Notes' Wake Up Everybody;
und Jean Austins rauer Spirit Free, mitgeschrieben von Ronnie Dyson, produziert von Jesse James bei Future Gold.
Chicago Sound wie The Fantastic Family Aires - benannt nach dem Möbelhaus der Familie in North Cicero,
die aber an die Staple Singers in ihren besten Zeiten erinnern - bis hin zur vollen Pracht von The Fountain Of Life Joy Choir,
unter der Leitung von Marvin Yancy von The Independents und mit Natalie Cole...
Sängerinnen wie Versie Mae Gibson von den Jordans, die zu Recht in einer Reihe mit Irma, Etta und Ree stehen...
Banger, die zu 100% garantiert ihren Weg in die Sets von Theo Parrish finden;
und tödliches Delirium für die zimperlichsten Soul- und Gospel-Puristen.


Honest Jons

DER Platten Laden überhaupt am Ende der Portobello Road Londons. Egal ob spektakuläre Reissues oder super aktuelle und grossartige elektronische Musik - Honest Jon's hat die Finger im Spiel. "Informal University for music lovers" - wird der Laden liebevoll genannt und ist seit 1974 das Herz der Londoner Musik Community. Das Label Honest Jon's wird unter anderem von Notting Hill local Damon Albarn mitbetrieben. Seit 2008 veröffentlicht Honest Jon's immer wieder Leckerbissen aus den 150 000 78 - rpm Aufnahmen aus den klimakontrollierten archivräumen der EMI archives in Hayes England.

EN: Honest Jon's is an independent record shop based on Portobello Road in Ladbroke Grove, London, operating since 1974. The shop is owned and run by Mark Ainley and Alan Scholefield, who took over from one of the original proprietors, "Honest" Jon Clare. Their record label of the same name is run in conjunction with Damon Albarn, who has been quoted as saying: "I don't really like the term world music. Wherever it comes from, it's all just music, isn't it? Hopefully that's what Honest Jon's is about - to open a few minds to what's out there."[1] The shop sells a multitude of genres of music on vinyl and CD, specializing in jazz, blues, reggae, dance, soul, folk and outernational. It runs a mail-order business from www.honestjons.com. Formed in 2002, the label has released compilation albums such as its London Is The Place For Me series, excavating the music of young Black London, in the years after World War II ("a fascinating archive of material from the 1950s and 60s, chronicling a time when diasporic rhythms were more or less the sole preserve of the small communities responsible for bringing them to these shores");[2] also collections of British folk, Port-of-Spain soca, Afro-Cuban jazz from the Bronx, Jamaican dancehall; and retrospectives of artists including Moondog, Maki Asakawa, Bettye Swann and Cedric "Im" Brooks & The Light of Saba. It has released original music by Candi Staton, Actress, T++, Hypnotic Brass Ensemble, Mark Ernestus, Trembling Bells, The Good, The Bad & The Queen, Simone White, Shackleton, Michael Hurley, Terry Hall, and the Moritz Von Oswald Trio. It recorded the chaabi orchestra of Abdel Hadi Halo on location in Algiers; Lobi Traore and Kokanko Sata Doumbia in Bamako; and Tony Allen in Lagos. In 2008, Honest Jon's began a run of compilations of early recordings — mostly drawn from the EMI Archive in Hayes, Hillingdon — stretching back to the start of the twentieth century, covering all corners of the world: from the break-up of the Ottoman Empire more than a hundred years ago, to 1950s Beirut, to late-1920s Baghdad, to 1930s East Africa. wikipedia
