Have a Little Faith

I was playing True Faith a Mojo compilation during the week.An excellent mix of 15 tracks of soul-stirring gospel,country and blues.
I thought it was a recent acquisition but it turns out that it is from about his time last year and that I featured tracks by Bob Dylan and Odetta at the time.

It is one that is well worth featuring again. Let's start with the majestic Gospel legend Dorothy Love Coates with an absolutely stonking version of 99 and a Half Won't Do.
Dorothy is followed by the rockabilly and country legend Charlie Rich . Here the Silver Fox is paying homage to the  Big Man.

  1. You can't go wrong with Dorothy Love Coates and the Original Gospel Harmonettes from 1956 - a great pick, CC!
