Between Heaven and Hell

Z Records in the UK has released Overdose of the Holy Ghost: The Sound of Gospel Through the Disco and Boogie Eras and it’s been essential listening in my house and car for some time now. Six cuts here come from that, and I added some Satan just to spice things up a bit. Key cut here, Elbernita “Twinkie” Clark’s “Awake, O Zion” which sounds unlike anything else I can name and is funky in ways I’m not sure we’ve heard before.  Heavenly!
