【ストック】最も偉大なゴスペルレーベル、名門SAVOYの50年代半ばから66年までの音源をコンパイルしたHONEST JONSからの3部作第1弾。

1940年代にスタートし初期のビバップの隆盛に重要な役割を果たし、Rythm & Blues、Soul、そしてゴスペルにシフトしていく名門SAVOYの音源をHONEST JON'Sが3部作としてコンパイル。第1弾は1954-1966。生々しいソウル、焼け付くようなブルース、ハードロッキンなドゥーワップやジャズ、嵐のようなR&Bが交錯するゴスペル・ミュージック。説のNUPHONIC創設者の一人、ゴスペルのオーソリティーとしても活躍するDave Hill、Cultures Of Soulでのゴスペル・ディスコの仕事でも知られるGreg Belson、HONEST JON'S創設者の一人Mark Ainleyによるコンパイル。JGM(The Journal of Gospel Music)のRobert M. Marovichがライナーノーツを手掛け、4ページのライナーノーツ、見開きスリーヴの2LP。 (サイトウ)

The first of three volumes surveying surely the mightiest Gospel label of them all.
Stomping, rollicking gospel music, intermingling with raw soul, searing blues, hard-rocking doo-wop and jazz, and storming r&b.
Infused and incandescent with the hurting, surging indignation of the Civil Rights movement, here are twenty-four precious scorchers by giants like the Staple Singers and Jimmy Scott, alongside devastating sides by less celebrated names like the Harmonising Five of Burlington, North Carolina, and teen-group the North Philadelphia Juniors, culminating triumphantly with slamming, sanctified versions of Hit The Road Jack and Wade In The Water. Drawn from nigh-impossible-to-find 78s, sevens and LPs, hardly any of these recordings have been reissued since their first release.
Presented in a gatefold sleeve, with full-size booklet; beautifully designed, with stunning, rare photographs and original Savoy artwork. Sound restoration and mastering at Abbey Road; pressed at Pallas.
Co-curated by Greg Belson, compiler of Divine Disco; with deep, extensive notes by Robert Marovich, author of A City Called Heaven: Chicago and the Birth of Gospel Music (University of Illinois), and host of the award-winning radio show Gospel Memories.
