I know a few:

Voices of East Harlem-No, No, No-Elektra "Right On Be Free" LP

Christian People-Andre & the Disciples-Liberty

Three Little Fishes-Bessie Griffin-Liberty (big on the popcorn scene, too)

Didn't It Rain-Evelyn Freeman-United Artists (massive spin in Pittsburgh for years!)

and here's my all time classic opener...

I'll Be Waiting-The Angelic Choir-Savoy--I've opened many sets with this one. It's an absolute killer! The song builds with a spoken intro with each instrument coming in one by one. I'll try to post a sound clip.

I think "Don't Give Up" by Cassietta George which was mentioned above is amazing (as is much of her other stuff but not in a very "northern" way). I really like the following as well:

Jean Austin - Don't Have To Worry- SONGBIRD

Salem Travelers - Give Me Liberty Or Death- CHECKER

Two classics from the Torch:

Right Direction - Clara Ward

Mighty Good Way - Robert Banks

Anyone agree that the Clara Ward track is borderline sublime?

Wow, someone actually mentioned 'Didn't It Rain - Evelyn Freeman'. I think it's great & recently found A copy, as had it from 'talkin' trash' (Greasy R&B with attitude '54 - '63, so the cover says) comp.

Played it to a few people into R&B type stuff, but they all seemed to find it a bit too much, though they generally preferred the other side 'Water boy', which sounds like Pigmeat Markham, but doesn't really go anywhere. Don't think it would go down well at a Northern night.

Heard the Cassietta George the other week & thats really good too, but had already gone

...and I believe Clara Ward's version of "Help" got a few plays at the Torch as well.

From even earlier, how about James Carr "Freedom Train" - or is that more social comment than gospel?

At Fish Ain't Bitin' in Manchester a couple of months ago, Steve Cato played an incredible 45 by Ben Branch on (I think) Checker: a version of the standard "Motherless Child". It was one of the greatest records I've ever heard in a club. Deep but uplifting, with an enormous swell of sound and great presence. Fans of the late 60s Dells sound would definitely appreciate this.

Over the years I've spun a few gospel things out: Glenn Jones & The Modulations on Savoy; Don Bryant & A Chosen Few; and a personal favourite: "Not My Home" by Mike Heyward on I Am (do any modern soul fans know this lp? this bloke is one of the best unknown vocalists ever).

Totally irrelevant to the Northern side of it, but anyone who likes current urban gospel should get Raymond and co's "Playing games" album. I was first given a couple of tracks to play on air during the summer, and there's now a rather tasty vinyl promo in my collection :thumbsup::thumbup:

Don't forget Mary Love Comer's 'Sandbox' and all the other 80s/90s tracks on her Kent CD ('The Price' is slow but utterly brilliant). If we do a comp we'll get Tony Clayton to do the sleevenotes.

PS I know Clara Ward was a gospel singer but are there any religious refernces in 'The Right Direction', I can't remember feeling very holy when I danced to it.

It didn't change hands at Ponds Forge earlier this year did it? If so, it's gone to a good home :thumbsup:
