Various Artists - Como Now (2008)




Como, a small town in the heart of Mississippi, is a place where gospel lives and breathes. This album, a collection of acapella gospel standards, is the result of inviting local singers to record sessions at a rustic church: what ensues is a soul-stirring, haunting collection of voices, steeped in tradition and heavy in passion.

If church sounded like this, I'd never leave.

    this is really great. is this a one off project, or does Daptone have more stuff like this?

    Glad you dig. Daptone doesn't have anything else this raw - their focus is more funk-oriented - but I'll post some other gospel soon.

    nice, looking forward. i was going to post a mix of old gospel i picked up from Mississippi Records (great minds), but this needs time to marinate.
