@Chresti - I think with some of these older performers, the Christian songs were just part of the general repertoire, though there are a bunch of blues players who rejected religious music completely.

I think you're right, even with musicians that say they have no connection. It worked its way in

Gospel music is so goddamn beautiful. I remember hearing the Gospelaires on a show in LA, c.1990. Never found their music until a few years ago, here in the Bay Area, two comps prepared by a dude who works at a local record store. Solid.

  Wed. 10/10/18 10:50pm Dean:

Yup, and it's the same for Bach and the rest. The "live on" part is religious, which is why I view (hear?) music as inherently religious.

"Spirit in the sky" seems fairly generic to me. Spirit, sky, where I'm gonna go when I die...an ordinary trope.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Wed. 10/10/18 11:04pm Funky16Corners:

From the Wiki:" "Spirit in the Sky" makes several references to Jesus, although Greenbaum is Jewish. In a 2006 interview with the New York Times, Greenbaum told a reporter he was inspired to write the song after watching Porter Wagoner singing a gospel song on TV. Greenbaum said: "I thought, 'Yeah, I could do that,' knowing nothing about gospel music, so I sat down and wrote my own gospel song. It came easy. I wrote the words in 15 minutes."

Coel, Does that mean we're dead or is there going to be nude dancing later on?

You may dance nude whenever the spirit takes you.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 10/10/18 11:06pm coelacanth∅:

it's the music...everything about the music (incl. the vocal arrangements and voices) - that makes spirit in the sky so great. you don't have to give a shit what they're carryin' on about; Norman and the background singers will carry you up

So, yeah, I continue to hear it as tongue in cheek, enjoyable (to me) that way (the story in Wikipedia sounds like it was a mix of that and opportunism, and a talent to hook into the feeling without having any background in that area.

Ten or fifteen dollar albums, to me, are not inexpensive. I'm really sick of this "market" shit.

Avatar Swag For Life Member    Wed. 10/10/18 11:21pm doctorjazz:

New vinyl now is $30-$50, and higher for some audiophile/collector albums. Ten bucks ain't bad (finding the great $2.99 bargain is a thing of the past).
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Wed. 10/10/18 11:23pm Funky16Corners:

@Dean - You have to remember that I am a record collector of long standing and deep sickness, and my approximation of 10-15 as inexpensive makes me a piker in the eyes of the really deep cats.

I should also say that my shelves are filled with many more 1-5 dollar hollars than the expensive stuff. My 45s, not so much

@Franco - This is my fave VU album
  Wed. 10/10/18 11:26pm Dean:

My main gripe is with myself: I sold a ton of stuff thirty years ago, some of which I wish I now had. But I don't buy the market. The joy of record collecting, c.'76, say, was finding rare stuff CHEAP. We did it then. You can do it now. Don't buy the economists' bullshit.

My major regret regarding rare 45s is not having visited Wenzel's Music Town in Downey more often.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Wed. 10/10/18 11:27pm Funky16Corners:

I'm DJing at the Keystone Northern Soul Weekender in November, and that room is filled with people that spend hundreds on 45s. I won't say that I never spent that kind of money, but it was very, very rare.
Avatar Wed. 10/10/18 11:29pm Franco Twinkie:

I'd sooner fill my garage with crushed aluminum cans that worry about the market value of my records.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Wed. 10/10/18 11:29pm doctorjazz:

If you have patience/energy, garage sales are the way to find stuff. Too old and tired, though. Even lost the patience to go through racks at used record stores. Used to spend whole days at Princeton Record Exchange and Tower Records-now Discogs, Amazon, and some other on line sites are the way I shop.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Wed. 10/10/18 11:29pm Funky16Corners:

But I've also been collecting soul music for almost 40 years, and my incurable/insatiable curiousity has led me to find many things before they were valuable.

In the prime of my record shopping, I had no clue about collecting. If I was at a used record store, and they had an original album, and a reissue as a two-fer of the same album, I'd always buy the two-fer, figuring I'd get twice the music for the same price. Boy, can kick myself for that sometimes...

That's my angle Larry! The Fall will have to do this year.
  Wed. 10/10/18 11:37pm Dean:

No, doctorjazz. You were exactly right. So-called originals aren't necessarily higher quality, audio-wise. Sometimes (but sometimes not) the two-fers sounded at least as good, if not better.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Wed. 10/10/18 11:39pm doctorjazz:

Ah, you know the audiophile dogma, early pressings are the best, of course.

Bullshit.
  Wed. 10/10/18 11:40pm Dean:

Though I'll confess that a first pressing of Yes's Close to the Edge surpassed Mobile Fidelity's remaster on a really good system.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Wed. 10/10/18 11:41pm Funky16Corners:

As a die-hard collector, unless you're talking about music that is otherwise unhearable outside of the original pressing, it's largely about fetishism, i.e. I have to have the original to satisfy my need to connect to that thing.

CHECK THE RECORD PLAYER (IS ANYONE ELSE HEARING THE BROKEN REPEATING RECORD?!)

Precisely. Which is why I admit that I don't like listening to music. I like playing records.

He has a nice softness to his sound that fits perfectly with this song.

Three notes and I knew it was Hamza el Din. Heard him live in LA at McCabe's guitar shop. The best.
