Preacher & The Saints

Recorded for James Bullard’s King James label, Preacher & the Saints “Jesus Rhapsody Part 1” is gospel’s bread baked in funk’s pan. From the first minute’s massive break to the fiery J.B.-like shriek in the last, it never lets up. The group’s conventional beginnings are referenced with plink-plink piano and heavenly harp, but it’s the wildly absurd guitar solos and driving congas that steal the show.
