"A collection of this nature can only exist in hindsight. 'Gospel Funk' is a genre in the same way that deep soul or acid folk is, created by collectors and enthusiasts as a way to define a subsection of another genre. There aren't any labels, artists, or producers that focused strictly on funky gospel music, rather, there were a couple hundred groups that had a funkier number in their repertoire. The Numero Group has spent the last year scouring LPs and 45s for tracks that fit this bill, and have collected 18 standouts from this newly minted genre. The album is a mix of primitive choirs, spacious breaks, congas, elderly rappers impersonating the devil, cast recordings, thumping bass, and JB impressionists, all with a heavy slathering of gospel gravy. Featuring tracks by Preacher & the Saints, 5 Spiritual Tones, Mighty Walker Brothers, Masonic Wonders, Mighty Voices of Wonder, Voices of Conquest, Gospel Comforters, Horace Family, Trevor Dandy, Sam Taylor, Triumphs, Brother John Witherspoon, Shackleford Singers, Cliff Gober, Universal Jubileers, Modulations, Apostles of Music and LaVice & Company."
