I have a deep love of old field records of black church music and old funk and soul so this is the perfect coming together of two passionate musical styles.
There's not a poor track on the whole record with Voices of conquest's O Yes My Lord being for me the standout track.

Revelation, indeed. 22 Sep 2006
By W. Luck - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
The best historically-minded music compilations do not simply collect the best of an artist, label, or genre; they amass a backstory and glean a latent humanity in the process. The Numero Group is the best reissue label on the planet for this reason, eclipsing even notable and respectable heavies like Stones Throw's Now/Again and Soul Jazz. Numero consistently gets under the veneer of music, alone, and opens up lives and personalities within the pages of their typically detailed liner essays.

Numero has shown surprising diversity amongst their tasteful reissues - Fern Jones's album, for one, would have not been touched by any other label in this country - making it impossible to simply tag them as "that funk comp label." Skinny-Tie Power Pop meets latter-day 70s Femme Folk meets Deep Soul meets raw Belizian rhythm sections? Even on your shuffled-up iPod, this is a rare blend.

Numero's visual presentation is what sets them apart from exploitos like Tuff City or Collectables; the quality put into their packaging (slipcases!) includes in-depth essays, truly rare & undoctored photos, and enough purposeful white space for a Phaidon Press art tome. I can't tell you how good it looks for an album cover to lack ugly 3D graphics and tasteless "period" fonts.

Numero (along with the afforementioned Now/Again and Soul Jazz) also takes pride in being an ethical label - each of their releases has taken the extra step of keeping the compiled artists and legal right-holders in mind. This is a breath of fresh air for conscientious collectors, who know all too well the often-underhanded practices of the re-issue label market.

Now about this particular CD/LP: "Good God!" is, for my money, the most essential Numero issue to date (and that's saying a lot). When you're dealing with gospel music and its forms - of which this genre is one - respect and context are demanded of those that issue it for the masses. Numero hits a home run here. The artists on this compilation weren't selling out to the devil or the market; they were simply making music for God and their flock, irrespective of religious dilemmas or the trappings of radio classifications. Numero understands this and doesn't try to stir up any unnecessary "God or the Devil?" musicial cliches in its presentation.

Artistically, there is no chaff or ballast here. Some tracks are slightly more gripping than others, but none is skippable. Each, more importantly, is an act of worship: Preacher and the Saints offer hollering, symphonic praise; the Voices of Conquest raise a primal, beat-laden chorus; Trevor Dandy opens his heart with questions about the state of the world around him; the Shackleford Singers belt out gut-bucket family testifying. I could list, song-by-song, the intricities of each of the 18 entries on this CD/LP. I could try to explain how these gospel groups, who employ secular songs and music forms to suit their personal witness, are just as powerful in their own way as the worldly music itself. But frankly, these songs are meant to be discovered and savored by each individual listener.

This compilation is nothing short of five-star essential, regardless of your own personal faith. This isn't just gospel; this isn't just funk(y); this is rapturous, trancendant art that demands attention. Hallelujah.

GOSPEL made FUNK FUNKY and here's the proof... 9 April 2007
By Eddie Landsberg - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
JB himself said it... Funk's a mix of soul, Jazz and gospel, and here's the proof...
Though I've heard funky gospel, I'll tell you a secret...
Some church folk don't like their music being called FUNK...
I got in trouble for that once. Gospel is SANCTIFIED... not funky.
uh huh...
As for this album... funkier (*sorry, I mean more sanctified) gospel music exists, but if you're not into gospel, and want to get your hands on some great and rare stuff to get you started... here it is !
- - The strangest track is one called THOUGHS WERE THE DAYS... by LaVice and Company...
He sounds like he's smoking weed and the groove is real funky and groovin'...
and dig it when he says, "I remember when Hell was one swinging place!"
naturally, the purpose of the tune is to warn you about the "waitin' line" and I assume staying out of it...
Other faves of mine include Jesus Rhaspody and The Modulations' THIS WORLD IS GOING DOWN... which reminds me a bit of a certain Funkadelic tune. Bass/rhythm guitar and drums are really hitting... and yeah, there's plenty of Hammond all over the place.

Styles range from Memphis Soul, rare funk... to some disco/soul - - Though the styles of funky gospel should be no surprize to anyone who's already heard a lot of gospel, especially the "contemporary" gospel of the 70's, this album will be a great intro to rare funk and soul fans who haven't had a chance to actually hear it... and gospel fans can enjoy some rare spins...

Aside from that, yeah a few tracks aren't particularly funky, and just reflect the influence gospel had had on soul and soul on gospel, however, when this compilation does get twangy and bumping... it bumps !If you like this check out the CLARKE SISTERS who not only could be quite funky at times... also DISCO GOSPEL... (great for roller boogying to church!)

Buy it, buy it now!! 4 July 2014
By Pastor John - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
While some of the theology is suspect, or at least under developed, there is nothing suspect or under developed about the grooves laid down. This Album is full of gems that have largely been lost, and need to be recovered. "God Will Dry My Weeping Eyes"by the Horace Family (their only attributed recording) alone is worth double the price of the whole album, and there are many other gems and not a single clunker on this anthology. It represents an era and style of Gospel largely lost to both the church and musicologists, and it belongs in your collection.

Buy the CD, the audio is too rich for the MP3 format, I truly lament this is unavailable in vinyl.
