  1. Yes of course, I'll update when the release date is confirmed. What with covid restrictions, it's difficult to pinpoint an accurate date, as it's dependent on stores opening and when distribution networks are back on track. The project is finished and ready to go, hence my post here as a precursor of what's in store. This release will be widely available via all good outlets worldwide, so no worries there....date incoming asap.
  2. The set was actually posted on the website last week....this was the link to the page, which contained preliminary details...it's currently blank which means they're evaluating the release date. https://honestjons.com/label/artist/Savoy_Gospel/release/19541966 As they say, watch this space.....cheers!
  3. News/Article/Feature Highlight: Presenting a three part compilation that focuses on the Savoy Gospel catalog of the legendary label through its glory years. View full article
  4. Time to make it official…..the completion of the project I’ve been working on for the last 6 years alongside DAVID HILL and HONEST JOHN’S RECORDS. I’m excited to announce the compilation mini-series; A Stranger I May Be – Savoy Gospel 1954 – 1986 (Honest John’s Records) Presenting a three part compilation that focuses on the Gospel catalog of the legendary label through its glory years. Whilst it’s practically impossible to assemble a definitive compilation for such a body of work, we decided to focus on separate periods that really exemplified the sounds that were evolving in the Savoy studios. Namely; Vol. 1 = 1954 – 1966 Vol. 2 = 1970 – 1979 Vol. 3 – 1978 – 1986 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. The compilation 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. 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 sleeve notes, inserts and amazing photos of the artists themselves. Already released was the two 45’s and 10” single last year as a precursor to the compilation….still available are Jessy Dixon’s version of ‘Wade in the water’ (the first time on a 45), and the missing anomaly to the Savoy catalog for so long, Edith Moreno’s ‘Get ready for judgment day’. RELEASE DATE for the compilation itself is still TBA but please visit the HONEST JOHN’S website for more information. Cheers!

  7. It's time to label focus once again, and for this session we're turning our attention to the quite frankly, awesome body of work that is; Jewel Devotional Series If you're not familiar with how these particular shows work, then check out our previous focus on the HOB IS GOSPEL label, here; https://www.mixcloud.com/gregbelson/divine-chord-gospel-show-pt-101-hob-is-gospel-label-focus/ Join us on Wednesday 27th May 2020 @ 2pm US PDT (10pm UK GMT) on dublab.com for a rundown of some of the finest music featured from this amazing catalog. We're running deep into the 45's released on this essential label, so pull up a chair, grab a pen....it's music you might not have heard before!
  8. In early February 2020, I visited Memphis TENN to hit the crates & dig deep into the well of unbelievable music created in that legendary city. I arrived with an empty record box when after 1 day in to the dig, I received an invite from 2 of the key players at this premo new DJ spot to play a set on the following Saturday. Pretty cool...3 days to dig out the goodness with a final 1 hour showcase at the weekend! I didn’t want to pillage the mighty Stax catalog as I know the local folks will have that on lock…..I wanted to mine the soul of gospel labels Designer, D-Vine Spirituals, Philwood & Prabay, whilst seeking out some soul & funk rarities next to the cheaper, overlooked business. It was a wild trip putting this together, & I ended up over running my allotted set time by 25 minutes! Thanks so much to Eight and Sand @ The Central Station Hotel, Otis Shredding, Memphi$ Jones, McLemore & Daniel Mathis that made this one pretty special.
  9. 8 and some odd years on or so, and still looking. Can anyone help, please? Thanks!
