Sister Rosetta Tharpe Live in 1960 LP
Vinyl LP Remastered From Analog Tape!
Pressed at Pallas in Germany!
2018 Rock & Roll Hall Of Fame Inductee! The first guitar heroine of Rock & Roll!!!
Sister Rosetta Tharpe was the first great recording star of gospel music and
among the first gospel musicians to appeal to rhythm-and-blues and rock-and-roll
audiences, later being referred to as "the original soul sister" and "the
godmother of rock and roll". This live recording from 1960 had never been on
vinyl, until now, a whole 57 years later.
The set has plenty of variety, lots of sincere feeling, and high levels of
musicianship from the unique performer. Highlights include "He’s Got the Whole
World In His Hands," "Didn’t It Rain," "The Gospel Train" and "Down By the
Riverside." The album was remastered at Infrasonic Mastering for vinyl from
analog tape and pressed at Pallas Group in Germany.
"Originally released by Southland on CD in 1992, Live In 1960 captures
Tharpe during a European tour, one which she embarked on as a solo artist. So
each one of the 12 tracks features nothing but her driving playing, eyes
clenched vocals and the stomp of her foot on stage. It's blushingly intimate,
putting her proselytizing efforts front and center. The feeling is deepened with
this vinyl remaster. The wax is mixed on the quiet side, and a bit of surface
noise hangs in the background, but with a little volume push, all that gets
brushed aside with every stinging, pleading note." - Paste Magazine
