Bible and Tire Recording Company: Sacred Soul of North Carolina - New Release Review

 I just had the opportunity to review the most recent release, Sacred Soul of North Carolina from the Bible and Tire Recording Company and it's uplifting. Opening with Can't Turn Me Around from the Dedicated Men of Zion this release is on fire. This is a tight group of vocalists and potent singers. With all of the pageantry of gospel music and  all the soul of in old school soul music this is a terrific opener. With a cool R&B rhythm, they continue on It's A Shame and they really are electrifying. Johnny Ray Daniels winds out Somewhere In My Head and with a pace that's bound to get your bead bouncing. Big James Barrett & The Golden Jubilees really blend nicely on Tell It. Big James up front leads the chase and with just the right amount of electric guitar and drums. Hi stepping Use Me Lord by The Golden Jubilees really stands out with it's contemporary funky sound. Big Walt and The Faithful Jordanaires have a big sound, Big Walt having some of the richest pipes on the circuit. Faith and Harmony really have a contemporary style on We Will Work but sticking to gospel roots. With funky drum/organ backing, they are kicking it. The Johnsonaires use traditional revival style with drum reinforcement for handclaps on Shake Me to really get this track moving. With a really prominent bass line and punchy backing vocals, this track is great. Little Willie & The Fantastic Spirituralaires get a great groove going on Have You Tried Jesus. Simple call and response drives this train and with a relentless guitar/drum/keys bottom, this track has full impact. Wrapping the release is Melody Harper on Amazing Grace. Her vocals are sophisticated and incredible smooth. Breaking away from the traditional gospel feel, she embraces contemporary vocal styling with multiple key changes and vocal acrobatics. A solid closer for an impressive group of recordings.
