Various - You Better Get Ready: Savoy Gospel 1978-1986 2LP

Honest Jon's Records (UK)
Regular price $26.98 $0.00
The third of three volumes surveying surely the mightiest Gospel label of them all. Seventeen gems of fierce funk, rapturous soul and transcendent disco and boogie, super-charged with celebration and affirmativeness, loaded with roaring choirs, rocking horns and popping bass guitars, from the years leading up to Savoy's acquisition by Malaco. Hardly any of these recordings have been reissued since their first release. The stupendous opener by Edith Moreno only appeared as a blank-label promo, in a tiny run. Presented in a spot-glossed sleeve, with full-size booklet; beautifully designed, with stunning, rare photographs and original Savoy artwork. Sound restoration and mastering at Abbey Road; pressed at Pallas. Co-curated by Greg Belson, compiler of Divine Disco; with deep, extensive notes by Robert Marovich, author of A City Called Heaven: Chicago and the Birth of Gospel Music (University of Illinois), and host of the award-winning radio show Gospel Memories.
