Turn It Loose, Ain’t No Good Savoy Gospel 1970-1979 (2LP)
Honest Jons - HJRLP080
The second volume brings sublime crossings of gospel with the soul, funk and jazz of the Black Power era. Twenty rapturous cuts dot dazzlingly between Muscle Shoals soul, screwed breakbeat, Mizells-style fusion, disco and proto-house. Triumphant re-workings of Sly Stone, Donny Hathaway and Herbie Hancock’s Head Hunters will have listeners throwing their pew cushions into the air.
Full-size booklet; beautifully designed, with stunning, rare photographs and original Savoy artwork.
