"A perfect sermon recorded live with a congregation becomes something else when the band kicks in a third of the way through. They vamp their way through a dozen classic spirituals and gospel songs, behind Rev. Holmes, who recorded three LPs for Natural. “Sounds like a Velvet Underground bootleg, but it's happy!”, says Sam Hooker (Peoples Records/ Tarpit). Non-subscriber titles from the Knight Foundation-supported Detroit Gospel Reissue Project. Retail copies, limited to 450." - Detroit Gospel Reissue Project. Hear an excerpt from side 2.
