The Soul (Gospel) of the Movement: The Gospel According to Kay Robinson

Kay Robinson - This Old World

Gospel singer Kay Robinson hooked up with James Brown at the end of the '60s and the resulting album ("We Need Time") and 45s from that era, particularly her incendiary funk reading of "The Lord Will Make a Way Somehow," are highly prized among collectors. Today's selection was one of her Brown-produced recordings. This swinging tune features this thought-provoking lyric: "When He made us all in His own image, why should there be / Those who say they worship and adore Him - still they don't like me?"
