There Is A God Somewhere !!

Continuing with the theme of rare, yet killer Gospel-Soul,
this Nashville recorded God-revering album is considered
a Holy Grail of this subgenre. This vinyl rip is not my own,
and I can't remember what blog I originally got it from.
However, I came to know of the album through an episode of
Crate Diggers. At this point, there have been several reissues, so
grab a copy if you want it on wax

    1. I think you'll REALLY dig it. FYI: I may have misspelled the artist name on the files as Andrews Watts, when it is in fact Warts.

      Regardless ...enjoy!

    1. It truly is. My current digging interests are almost exclusive to this sub-genre. There's a lot of fantastic Gospel joints out there

    I have Several recommendations that do not know many lovers of the genre and have incredible arrangements, several are my favorites ( the gospel soul with :
    -David Axelrod-The Auction ( 1972 )
    -Love Peace & Happiness - Love Is Stronger ( 1971 ) ( the other album is only soul, terrific put not one of the best for me )

    Have David Axelrod albums ?
