Album Review: Naomi Shelton and The Gospel Queens, "What Have You Done, My Brother?"

"You got gospel in my R&B! You got R&B in my gospel!" An actually pretty interesting record from Brooklyn's tremendous soul label, Daptone, it combines an R&B tempo and instrumentation with gospel vocal arrangements. Ms. Shelton's voice is really distinctive, and the record sounds terrific. Play all, but esp:

1, 4++(groove!), 6+ (now there's gospel), 7, 10+(deep soul)
