Mooie nieuwe gospelverzamelaar op een label van Bruce Watson van Fat possu, Bible & Tire Records Co. “Unsung grooving Memphis sacred soul”. Een lp vol met ‘extremely obscure yet rousing gospel singles.’ In dit geval dus op het JCR Records, label uit Memphis. En nee, wij kenden dat label ook niet. ‘JRC Records began in Memphis, Tennessee’s thriving gospel scene and was a secondary label to the more established label, D-Vine, began by Pastor Juan D. Shipp. Aside from their stellar audio and pressing qualities, Shipp’s productions — whether they were released on D-Vine or JCR — possessed something that’s even harder to achieve: their very own sound and style; a combination of distinctively deep and beautiful vocal harmonies, up-front guitar, grooving bass, explosive drums, and that ever-present overtone of rhythm and blues and country and western that swirled together under the roof of Stax Records just a few years earlier. From the very first singles it was the very essence of gospel soul at its finest.’
