The Caravans - Where Gospel Meets Soul

The Caravans - Where Gospel Meets Soul

Stock Status: In Stock

The Caravans were a gospel vocal group who originated in Chicago in the late 1940s as the Robert Anderson Singers and The Robert Anderson Gospel Caravan, and evolved to begin recording as The Caravans in 1952. As a collective the singers became  hugely popular and immensely respected, as well as extremely influential on the vocal groups who followed.

As much as any other group, they incorporated the styles which formed the backbone of the secular soul music which became popular during the 1960s and in the process changed the music-buying public’s attitudes to the genre and how it was received. The group’s line-ups over the next decade included some of the most noted singers of the era, including Albertina Walker, Inez Andrews, Denise Norwood, Shirley Caesar, Cassietta George, Johneron Davis, Delores Washington and others, on occasion also including Rev. James Cleveland.

This 56-track 2-CD collection features most of the A- and B-sides of their releases on the States and Gospel labels during this era, many of which were also included on their album releases during these years as well. Walker, who sadly died on 8 October 2010, released a reunion album entitled Paved The Way in 2006. The group’s first new recording since 1976 was dubbed by Billboard Magazine as one of the most memorable releases of that year and entered the Billboard charts in the Top 10.

Featuring many traditional songs and spirituals alongside some fine new gospel compositions, this collection highlights how the group, took their distinctive brand of gospel into more contemporary soul territory and makes for an exciting and joyous showcase for their talents.
