The Crowns of Glory - Won't It Be Grand (Peacock LP)
A nice gospel soul/funk album in a slightly more traditional style than some of the more popular Peacock LPs that have made a resurgence with the gospel funk genre, but it is quite good and I rather enjoy the more soulful less funk side of gospel anyway. I couldnt believe this wasnt available anywhere and it needs to be heard so even tho it is somewhat major label I felt the need to post this. For any gospel fans or soul fans out there you should definitely get this. It's really a damn shame how much incredible gospel music was recorded from the 50s 60s 70s that has been out of print in all forms since its first release. There are probably 50+ extremely good records on Peacock and Songbird alone that deserve rerelease.Also there are some really great moments and bars for sampling in peacock albums, including this one. Sometimes even great drum breaks that havent been used, but usually just a stirring sample passage. check it.
