James Cleveland and the Southern California Community Choir – In The Ghetto (Savoy Records, 1972)

The soul sounds are on Savoy, and in this case James Cleveland means your everlasting soul. The King of Gospel music leads his large choir in “another sincere emotion-filled album of superb selections that are destined for immortality.” Perfect listening for Sunday morning brunch. (Yes, this is the group that backed James Brown in the Blues Brothers movie.)

John Teter – If I Can Help Somebody (Benson Records,

From the liner notes:

“This record is dedicated to my wife Carol and daughter Pam for without their support this record would not be possible.

I want to thanks those who prayed for me during my timeĀ  of sickness and have continually encouraged me in pursuing God’s will in my life. Thank you to the members of the First Baptist Church of Maysville, Missouri; and also to th epeople of Dekalb Country for your support. A special thanks to my mother and father for providing me with a Christian home and for giving me the opportunity to study music. I pray that this record will glorify the name of the Lord Jesus Christ.

God loves you, and so do I.”
