    Better how, mate? I think they've upped the bar considerably from the first comp, and I'm sure the customers that bought the first one will buy into this one.....and a few of the rarer titles should perk up interest elsewhere.

    Inclusions of one super rare title on this one, should lead to more on the next volume.

    3. Do Your Thing - Gaines, Marion Singers so far so good[/b]
    4. Dead End Street - Ward, Clara I don't think of this song as really gospel, more like uptempo Axelrod[/b]
    5. Let Them Talk - Meditation Singers Belson did you play this for me?[/b]
    6. Who Is She - Reese, Della Not a gospel track, a good track but doesn't belong on this comp[/b]
    7. Praise His Name - Stovall Sisters Should of went with "Hang On In There"[/b]
    8. Where Will It End - Sensational Cymbals Don't know it, want to hear it[/b]

    11. Keep Trying - Clark, Mildred I think this is another one you played for me Belson[/b]
    12. We Should All Thank The Lord - Lovers Of God don't know it, [/b]
    13. I'll Keep A Light In My Window - NYCC This song is one of my favorites, never heard this version but Free Life's version is amazing, This is probably the track I most look forward to hearing[/b]
    14. Bad Times Bad Times - Williams, Marion heard about it, would like to hear this[/b]
    15. Keep The Faith - Mel & Tim Don't Know it, want to hear it[/b]

    17. Why Am I Treated So Bad - Sweet Inspirations ditto[/b]
    18. My Soul Has Got To Move - Dixie Wonders & Clephus Mabone don't know it, want to hear it[/b]
    19. Let Him Come In - Lemon, Howard Singers meh[/b]
    20. Wade In The Water - Angelic Choir I'm a sucker for this song[/b]
    21. For What It's Worth - Staple Singers is this the buffalo Springfield joint? if so, definitly not a gospel track[/b]

    definitely looks better than the first volume. I do think they could of done better, but I'll reserve final judgement until after I give it a proper listen

    13. I'll Keep A Light In My Window - NYCC This song is one of my favorites, never heard this version but Free Life's version is amazing, This is probably the track I most look forward to hearing

    This is pretty discoey. Did they include the 12" version with the extra braekz?

    do you have an MP3 of this song. I have yet to hear a version I didn't like

  • BelsonBelson 880 Posts
    Firstly, the Meditation Singers - yeah, I played you that. Seems to be so overlooked at the minute.

    The Martha Bass is an uptempo funky soul cut - s'nice.

    Hang on in there by the Stovalls has been comped a few times already - so nice to go with something fresh.

    The Della Reese is an interesting inclusion...I tend to agree with you, even though the version by Andrea Vereen that Jinx included on his gospel mix didn't get slammed at all - OK it has more adaptations but it's still the same track essentially.

    Yeah, I played you the Mildred Clark too.

    Sensational Cymbals is sweet - you'll like that.

    As for the few other tracks that aren't really gospel - yeah, I'ld agree but this comp is part 2 of a series planned for Soul Gospel. Whilst others seem to be talking about getting *a* compilation done, Soul Jazz are putting together a series that grows with its audience. A tracklisting for Volume 3 has already been submitted to the label and yes, it goes deeper still. As a series that is introducing people to it, I think it's moving in the right direction. Many of us can come up with one comp of heaters that the next person hasn't heard - but that's not entirely the point here.

  • As for the few other tracks that aren't really gospel

    it's not that I mind hearing some of these tracks I just don't think tracks about a man sneaking off with another woman has much to do with the gospel

    Gr*g, don't get me wrong I'll most likely be picking this up. I'm just playing harsh record nerd critic. Honestly I wish there were more gospel comps out there

    Been a playout disco tune for ages. Pretty easy LP and 12 to catch.

    Keep a Light clip

    Haha - no comensation here, mate......but the two tracks I was asked to submit made it on there.....


  • SoulhawkSoulhawk 3,197 Posts
    seems like alot of gurl diva stuff on there.

    maybe not to my taste, but horses for courses & alladat.

    the real question remains: will this comp get the t*nyu seal of approval???

    I will say in defense of SoulJazz (and I need a late pass to the Gospel party, and did not like the 1st Soul Gospel comp) their popularity at this point is going to work against the record geek attitude. Their releases get coverage in Spin, Pitchfork, et mainstream music media al. They have to appeal to more than just the Gospel-obsessed digger; hence, you are probably seeing more disco, mainstream, and cover tracks mixed in with the raers.

    Not everyone is going searching for Violinaires records; but, Souljazz still has to have something to appeal to that buyer.

    Is it not possible to go after both audiences without going the Staples Singers route? Numero covets both, and our funky gospel collection is all rare cuts. The Pitchfork / Spin / flavor of the week sect, while not crate diggers, is still every bit as hungry for the off the wall and out there. They're not looking to be pandered to.

    At this point Soul Jazz has a really healthy brand identity. They can go anywhere they want to and people will follow. The real question is, how many of their releases go REALLY deep?

    Well, I don't think that the Staple Singers are pandering. The song in question is NOT a gospel tune, but the group in question DEFINITELY has gospel roots, and there is ZERO shame in the Staples game. I agree that the FLaveOfWeek Sect (henceforth to be referred to as FLOW Sect) wants the off the wall as well, but 1) their standards may be different- I don't expect them to know as much about Soul Gospel in the first place as the dudes on here, so they're off the wall and yours may be different and 2) Comps need to appeal to all audiences, and they need to get people to buy the thing in the first place. A couple familiar names can help lure in those FLOW Sect Fence Sitters.

    And, you could do a lot worse than the Staples Singers.

    Agreed on the ZERO shame for the Staples. I was merely trying to demonstrate the use of a familar name to draw people in. I'm not so sure the FLOW sect (nice work there) really cares if Aretha or Marion or Clara is on there, they're looking at the logo.

    Again, SJ has done a brilliant job branding themselves, and I commend them for that. If you're posting here, chances are they will never do anything deep enough for you. If you think you can do it better, do it.

    Track list forthcoming.

    Work in distribution long enough and you'll get everything for free. Or nearly free...

    Nice bag, really. More companies need to properly accessorize.

    The track that was originally offered for the comp by the Staples Singers was 'Uncloudy day' - but that was rejected. If you haven't heard that, then you're missing out.

    Granted the comp as a whole isn't as deep as most of us would compile something - but has anybody heard the Lovers of God 45, except for the couple of people I played it to? Deep ain't the word and rare as a raer thing.

    ....I wouldn't say that

  • LaserWolfLaserWolf Portland Oregon 11,518 Posts
    I want to voice my support for the Staples version of For What It's Worth. This is not a gospel compilation, it is a gospel soul compilation. This song fits. While you might not think of the Buffallo S version as gospel when the Staples touch it takes on a whole new meaning.

    i think this is definitely better than the first one. better tunes for sure. i guess id just like to see a gospel comp of JUST gospel artists. theyre just the first to do it so of course they wont do it right yet. maybe the third one will be even better.

    im sure a few of us on here can do a real solid one but i too am glad that they started doing this. id do the next one for SJ or anyone else who is down to do it. gospel still scares a lot of people though.

    my sentiments exactly.

    If the majority of us gospel heads werent also potheads I thnk we could make a series of facemelting gospel comps.

    Soufriere:[/b] That version "Keep My Light In My Window" is pretty good. I have a feeling I've seen that NYCC album quite it a bit actually and always passed it up cause of the "CC" part of their name. This is a fairly common LP, no?

    Well hey, that's not such a bad idea.

    Everybody who wants in, post up one face melting gospel track that you would like to include in the 'SoulStrut Gospel Face Melters Vol. 1' comp.

    Mp3 them and list 'em up below - just snippets if you like, and keep them squirrel if you so desire....see what we come up with.

    Anybody want to step up to the plate first?

    NYCC has at least a couple really dope disco singles, I don't know if any of their albums are worth a damn however (the one I listened to wasn't)

    I have mixed feelings about these comps, but generally Soul Jazz releases have very high sound quality and are extremely listenable which should be the criteria for a good comp...

    are you willing to head up this project?

    Theres been talk of doing something like this before on SS but nothing materialized (I'll take some of the blame on that)

    Anyways I think it would be great to put one of these together and maybe sell it with all the profits going to charity. (hopefully something to do with one of the charities SS has contributed to before).
