A Stranger I May Be
Savoy Gospel 1954-1986

CDx3, HJRCD079


Our triple CD presents the music of the three double LPs in all their glory.

Sixty-one gems of stomping, rollicking, desolate, ravishing gospel music, intermingling with soul, blues, doo-wop, jazz, r&b, disco and boogie.

Presented as a sixty-page mini-book, perfect-bound, with CDs suspended in card sleeves; beautifully designed, with stunning, rare photographs and original Savoy artwork.
An extensive, sumptuous survey of surely the mightiest Gospel label of them all, Savoy.

Drawn from nigh-impossible-to-find 78s, sevens, twelves and LPs, hardly any of these recordings - perhaps none - have been reissued since their first release.

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.
