If God Doesn't Hear This He Ain't Listening
Shout gospel, with its swing-lead and sanctified demonstrations, evolved in the early 1950s when gospel quartet competition came along and groups needed an edge to compete. Try to imagine all of the antics that James Brown started to use in the 1960s. These were all dramatically enacted by the gospel groups of the 1950s - knee-drops, mike tossing and creeping through the audience, shouting the sisters down. The focus of this collection is on great, unheralded talent on little known and forgotten labels, such as Hi-Hat, Glory and Tuxedo. The collection for the most part features the shout style, but we have included a handful of jubilee gospel examples. Essential to fans, fascinating to anybody interested in America's musical heritage, this collection can be seen as a companion to the well-received JSP77126 Nuggets of the Golden Age of Gospel
