Dorothy Love Coates & The Original Gospel Harmonettes : Get On Board : 00  1 CD : 022211701729 : SPC7017.2

Dorothy Love Coates & The Original Gospel Harmonettes : Get On Board

The mid-40s through the 1950s has come to be regarded as the Golden Age of African-American Gospel music. Specialty Records, founded by Art Rupe in 1946 was one of the first companies to nurture this creative flowering, and it remained at the forefront of the genre. The Pilgrim Travelers, the Soul Stirrers, Sister Wynona Carr, Brother Joe May, Dorothy Love Coates and the Original Gospel Harmonettes, the Original Blind Boys of Alabama, and the Swan Silvertones are a few of the giants of the Golden Age discovered and featured by Art Rupe on Specialty. "Get On Board" has 24 Gospel hits, all accompanied, most of which highlight Dorothy's Rockin' Soul, foot-tapping Revival-style leads, and her Harmonettes sing sweet and solid background harmonies. On stage Dorothy would leap and lunge, a ferociously animated performer and an astonishing lyricist who composed a dozen Gospel standards. A few favorites are "Get Away Jordan," "Rest for the Weary," "Deliver Me," "No Hiding Place" (which was featured in the movie "Ghost'"), "Old Gospel Train," "Plenty Good Room," "Waiting for Me," "I Wouldn't Mind Dying," the title tune and the final cut "That's Enough," but every cut here is an inspiration and a revelation. We look upon Dorothy Love Coates as an early Aretha, who also began her career singing Gospel, and if you love authentic Gospel, Get On Board this one!

Spike & Co. : Do It Acappella : 00  1 CD

Spike & Co. : Do It Acappella

Timing, that is the key. Often we understand the magnitude of an event only though the hindsight of history. In 1990 Spike Lee & Co. produced a television special totally a cappella. It featured some of the finest rock/popular/doo-wop groups in the world. Included in this sound track are Ladysmith Black Mambazo, The Mint Juleps, The Persuasions, Rockapella, Take Six and True Image. In historical terms this event was a watershed event bringing the renaissance of a cappella of to the public consciousness. It still is a marvelous cd and a must for any enthusiast of the genre. What ever happened to True Image, anyway?

Songlist: I Need You, Don't Let Your Heart, Zombie Jamboree , Looking For An Echo, Phansi Em Godini Down In The Mines, I Want To Live Easy, Under The Boardwalk, Up On The Roof, Higher And Higher, Get Away Jordan, N'Kosi Sikeleli Afrika God Bless Africa, Pass On The Love, The Lion Sleeps Tonight
