The Gospel Ayers – I Wanna Testify (Contour 2870 448) (1975)

Not so off-puttingly echo-y as the last Edwin Hawkins Lp reviewed, this VG++ condish choral album is a great example of soul influencing gospel rather than the other way around, especially in the rhythm section where the electric bass and drums are that much louder. Comprised of US Air Force personel stationed at an RAF base in the UK (?!), there’s plenty of traditional material and enough of a hint of Good God! funk on I Wanna Testify to satisfy gospel and soul purists respectively.

Another installment recounting last week’s Demelza bumper crop.
