Otis Clay, Rev Cleophus Robinson, the Staple Singers showcased on two new compilations.

TWO COMPILATIONS of post war gospel music have been released into the mainstream by Trikont Records. 'Overcome! Vol 1: Preaching In Rhythm And Funk' and 'Overcome! Vol 2: Sanctified Soul And Holy House' feature material from such artists as Otis Clay, The Gospel Hummingbirds, Rev Cleophus Robinson, the Staple Singers and Rev Louis Overstreet. Reviews in Mojo magazine enthused: "Prince Dixon's 'He Brought Me Out' and 'The Crownseekers' pulsating thump, 'Keep On Trusting In The Lord', show the range of expression the idiom provided."
