Gatefold double LP version featuring 10 tracks from the double CD. Z Records returns with a long overdue gospel album compiled by David Hill. With disco and funk-induced soul provided many gospel luminaries, plus exclusive edits from Z Records' Joey Negro, Overdose of the Holy Ghost is a shining example of church music that has been influenced by secular soul that was built for the dancefloor. from The Clark Sisters, who are without doubt one of the most successful and prolific family gospel groups of the last 40 years, recorded the title track in 1981 and it would go on to become the group's biggest crossover hit after being licensed to Elektra Records and released internationally in 1983. Gospel artists are well-known for taking popular secular songs -- or riffs from them -- and adapting the lyrics to take the song in a spiritual direction. Kristle uses The Emotions' "Best of My Love" as its foundation, and builds from a slow intro, gradually turning up the heat until it's the dancefloor burner that is "I'll Go." Rahni Harris is primarily known for "Six Million Steps," which became a classic on the early UK jazz-funk scene, but what most don't realize is that "Six Million Steps" is actually the instrumental B-side of the 1977 vocal gospel song originally released on the Inspirational Sounds label. It was only when the track was licensed by Mercury in 1978 that the B-side became the A-side and made its way onto the dancefloors of Essex. "He's My Friend" was recorded a couple of years earlier, when young Rahni was just 21. Also featuring tracks by Dan Greer, Sharon Johnson, Ricky Womack, Elbernita "Twinkie" Clark and The Young Delegation. Last copies on vinyl...
