Description

In 1977 Henry Stone invited Thomas Spann down to Florida. Spann was founder and leader of The Brooklyn All Stars, one of the most celebrated gospel quartets in the US; Stone headed TK Records, the biggest independent record company in the world. The All Stars' contract with Jewel Records just happened to be ending. "He called me and asked me would I meet him in Miami," recalls Spann. "And I flew down to Miami, and I met him and we went to this place that sold all these motor homes. He said, Pick out one, pick you out one that you want. And I did so. I drove it off the lot that same day. I didn't take a plane back. I drove that motor home back to North Carolina." A scorching, sublimely soulful survey of the Gospel Roots label, subsidiary of the mighty TK Records, at the height of the Miami Sound. With a glorious forty-page booklet, including thorough artist-interviews and rare photographs. Mastered at Abbey Road.
