Some Sunday Gospel Soul
Some Gospel for you good people today courtesy of the great Sister Rosetta Tharpe.
Taken from Good News - Volume 3 - Get Away Jordan
And the Good News keeps on coming as there are another three volumes of this fabulous Proper Gospel compilation on the shelves.
The first great recording star of gospel and a terrific guitarist as this clip recorded in Manchester (the English one ) in 1964 testifies. An apt song title for Manchester!
There is a terrific documentary from 2011 which can also be accessed from You Tube and which some of you will have seen on BBC4
The original soul sister and the godmother of rock'n'roll indeed.
