The Gospel Stars - Have You Any Time For Jesus
Today's selection is one of the highlights of the Complete Motown Singles series, as the early volumes of the set feature the 45s from the short-lived Divinity gospel subsidiary (as mentioned in a prior post, Motown, like most R&B indepdendents, tried their hand at recording gospel, but didn't stick with it). The Gospel Stars' strolling "Have You Any Time For Jesus" features very strong female group singing over a bluesy groove.
(EDITOR'S NOTE - I have missed the last couple of "Soul-Blues Saturday" posts and apologize for not sharing any great music on those days. As those of you who know me personally know, my wife and I are in the process of adopting a child and we are now in the "visitation" phase with a little boy. And as any of you with children know, a little boy consumes lots of time!)
