L’âme du Gospel: la lumière du peuple noir (1994)

7. "Go Down Moses" -Louis Armstrong
8. "Didn't It Rain" -Marion Williams
9. "Old Ship Of Zion" -Bessie Griffin
10. "Pray On" -The Staple Singers
11. "Joshua Fit The Battle of Jericho" -Mahalia Jackson

"I've Been Bucked" -Liz McComb

Disc Two

1. "When The Saints Go Marching In" -Mahalia Jackson
2. "Swing Low, Sweet Chariot" -Frances Steadman & The Stars of Faith

5. "Heaven Belongs To You (If You Live Right)" -The Abyssinian Baptist Choir
6. "Jezebel" -The Golden Gate Quartet
7. "In The Upper Room" -Mahalia Jackson
8. "What Could I Do" -Marion Williams
9. "It's A Highway To Heaven" -Alen Bradford
10. "Are You Sure?" -Aretha Franklin

they are ignored by music bloggers because they are consistently the most annoying killjoys on the face of the planet.How I hate the sound of a christian chastising me for liking music other than 'gospel' , of how i'm of the flesh and will burn in hell and they wont, of how i shouldn't buy listen to the material they produce because they after all made it for 'the on above'. Bah!
