D VINE SPIRITUALS, Sacred Soul Volume One, LP

In 1970, while the United States was recovering from the tumultuous unrest of the sixties and Southern segregationist George Wallace was between bids for the presidency, a young black preacher and an aging hillbilly bandleader struck up a friendship in a coffee shop in downtown Memphis. For the next decade and a half, record producer Juan D. Shipp and studio engineer Clyde Leoppard embarked on a musical journey that produced some of the most stirring sacred soul music ever laid to tape. Behold the story of Shipp’s D-Vine Spirituals record label, told here for the very first time since it’s 45 RPM glory days, and see if you don’t agree with the original company motto: “D-Vine Is Gospel.”
