The tracks chosen weave their way across the r&b boards of the earlier output, heading into the funkier sounds of the 70’s, before highlighting the polished modern soul and disco era into the 80’s. We’re proud of the tracklisting we’ve managed to assemble and think it’s not just a great introduction for those that are currently unaware of the discography, but it’s a solid representation to those that are already connoisseurs.

Tracklisting available here; https://www.propermusic.com/hjrcd079_a_stranger_i_may_be_savoy_gospel_1954_1986_3_cd_set.html

Each Volume will be released on DOUBLE VINYL, two as a gatefold, all housed in high grade board with a matte finish. The liner notes are presented in a series of different ways, including typed sleeves, various inserts and amazing photos of the artists themselves.

The compilation also comes as a 3xCD set with a 60 page booklet…comprehensive liner notes are provided by the amazing Grammy nominated ROBERT M. MAROVICH. No stone was left unturned in his narrative. It’s a fascinating accompaniment to the music itself.

From r&b movers and shakers, funk and soul devastators to club land disco dancefloor fillers….SAVOY RECORDS produced it all, backed with the spiritualized message of the Good Lord!
