Naomi Shelton And The Gospel Queens - What Have You Done, My Brother? (Daptone)
It's strange how gospel music raises the spirits, yet Christian rock is so relentlessly depressing. The ideology is the same, so it must be down to the presentation and the tunes. When it comes to the latter, covering Sam Cooke's proto-soul classic "A Change Is Gonna Come" isn't a bad idea, that and tapping into the legacy of Stax, Southern soul and Northern blues.

As you've probably guessed, Naomi Shelton isn't a conventional gospel singer. She was raised singing in an Alabama church, but has spent just as much time in New York soul clubs. On her first official album release she's ably supported by musical director, pianist Cliff Driver, her wonderfully tight / loose band, and The Gospel Queens: Bobby Gant, Cynthia Langston and Edna Johnson. Sharon Jones contributes additional vocals. 8/10.

Daptone delivers again, this time with Naomi Shelton & The Gospel Queens.
For me, there are 5 tracks that stand out; "What have you done", a song
that would have been a massive hit in a better world than this, I'll even
heard my 2 year old son groove along to it, trying to get the words right!
You get "A change is gonna come" and "I need you to hold my hand", two
sweet gospel numbers, a bit more traditional, but with the Daptone soul
sound for added spice, and on "What more can I do" and "Am I asking too
much?" they hit a groove that's pretty close to Sharon Jones.

Naomi Shelton has also recorded under the name Naomi Davis & The Knights
Of Forty First Street. Desco Records released an amazing 45 called
"Forty First Street Breakdown", a heavy funk number.

Praise the Lord, it's finally available... 31 May 2009
By B. Bowman - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
I have been waiting for this to be released since seeing Naomi Shelton in concert four years ago as an opener for Sharon Jones and the Dap Kings. She was billed as Naomi Davis then, and I was immediately drawn to the quality of her voice and her music. Ever since, I've been waiting for her first full length album to be issued, and after all these years it's finally here! I have to say, it was worth the wait. This album captures the same energy I have seen in her live shows, and contains elements of gospel, R&B, and the blues. As always, Naomi's voice is unique, weathered and worn, but never tired. While this music may fall under the gospel category, and does contain a few religious themed songs (the traditional "Jordan River", "I'll Take The Long Road", "Lift My Burdens", "I Need You To Hold My Hand"), there are secular themes present as well, such as the Iraq War and the drug trade in the U.S. on "Am I Asking Too Much?", which is by far one of the catchiest songs off this disc. I also have to mention, that while many of the songs have moments that bring a lump to my throat, the song that gets to me the most is "I Need You To Hold My Hand", sung by Gospel Queen Cynthia Langston, truly a beautiful voice and song! (The other song where Naomi Shelton does not handle lead vocals is "He Knows My Heart", sung by Bobbi Gant, another of the three Gospel Queens. Also as a point of interest for fans of Sharon Jones, the liner notes state that she also contributes backing vocals, as I have seen her do at several Naomi Shelton concerts.) The album closes with Naomi singing an excellent rendition of the Sam Cooke classic "A Change Is Gonna Come", which is the perfect ending to this album. If you are familiar with the work of Naomi Shelton, this one is a must have. If you are interested in an inspiring, funky, bluesy, and uplifting listening experience, I would highly recommend this.

Naomi Preaches the Good Word of Soul 3 Jun. 2009
By Ben Hernandez Jr. - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
Whether you've ever cracked open The Bible or not, Naomi Shelton and the Gospel Queens' album, What Have You Done, will give you an appreciation of raw soul that transcends piety. Speaking of virtues, Shelton's raspy, but controlled pipes command the tracks well, amplifying the righteous messages that each song touches upon. Backing Shelton are the Gospel Queens, who serve as the perfect companions for the call and response vocals, as well as complementary instrumentation from various Daptone musicians. While each track serves well individually, personal standouts include the title track, "What Have You Done," and "Am I Asking Too Much." Both songs are capable of triggering a soul clap, while slow burners like "He Knows My Heart" and "By Your Side" exude a soulful sincerity reminiscent of 60s gospel legends like Sam Cooke. What Have You Done is able to successfully encapsulate this vintage sound, which could easily be mistaken for a dusty gospel LP freshly plucked from a record store.

American masterpiece 8 Nov. 2009
By D. Landew - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
This is Naomi Shelton and the Gospel Queens' record label debut on Daptone, an independent based in Brooklyn and specializing in 1960s-styled soul and funk. It's terrific: hugely danceable, vocally rich and lyrically deep all at the same time.

The overall sound is a unique and immediately accessible mix of 1950s gospel (the Blind Boys of Alabama and pre-pop Sam Cooke and the Soul Stirrers) and 1960s soul, funk and r&b (Wilson Pickett, James Brown, Otis Redding, the Staple Singers and Booker T. and the MGs).

The lyric themes are timeless, and the music is joyous and uplifting, with Naomi's gritty and powerful voice of experience leading the charge. Keyboardist Cliff Driver, Naomi's on-and-off accompanist for the last three decades, does an excellent job of directing the band, as well as playing organ and piano. Daptone head and bass player Gabe Roth produced the album on all analog equipment, keeping the audio clean, clear and direct.

The whole thing is delivered straight from the heart, without a trace of irony, reflecting the personal convictions of Naomi and the Gospel Queens, as well as the love of the music by all involved.

In the end, this is a classic American party record with a message that doesn't get in the way of the fun, whether you play it on a Saturday night with your friends, or listen to it on your way to church on a Sunday morning with your family.

Fabulous recording 19 Jun. 2009

Unbelievable tone & quality to Naomi Shelton's voice - just a wonderful cd overall. Highly recommend
naomi does it 1 Oct. 2010
By kevin - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
Wow! I've got to join in the praise for this amazing album - another winner from the Daptone label. I'm not a fan of gospel but this album is so much more than that. It is a stirring mixture of gospel,soul, r+b with a little funk too!Naomi's voice is so real,rich,and so heartfelt and strong - she really sings from the depths of her soul.(even though that sounds like such a cliche it is true here)So do the 3 Gospel Queens who take over lead vocals on a couple of tracks.
What a thrill that music like this is still being made.Thank you Naomi and thank you Daptone records.If you are checking out this album , you are probably already a fan of label-mate Sharon Jones , but you should also check out britain's Ruby Turner's cd "I'm travelling on".
