Pastor T.L. Barrett And The Youth For Christ Choir - Like A Ship (Without A Sail)
A slight hiccup as we work on some website improvements. Product info such as release date, format etc is usually displayed here, we are working to fix this. In the meantime, please drop into live chat if you have a question about the release.
Recorded in 1971 by a 27-year-old pastor and an after school program choir, Like A Ship is a stirring and powerful meditation on the wayward aftermath of the Civil Rights Movement. Tracked with the help of Chess/Cadet maestros Gene Barge, Phil Upchurch, and Richard Evans, the album is a mix of euphoric gospel and Mayfield-esque politcal soul, with sleigh bells, hand claps, and jazzy piano stabs. Sampled by T.I., Kanye, and Khalid, Barrett created a rapturous, crossover gospel classic that's still wildly relevant.
