Elder Ward & The Gospel Four: “A Change Is Gonna Come”

By design, Song of the Day tends to feature up-and-coming artists and contemporary releases. But in honor of Black History Month, we’re gonna shake things up just a little bit. You’ll still get the usual mix of modern acts over the course of February, but each week we’re also offering a unique piece of Black History.

Sacred Soul: The D-Vine Spirituals Records Story Volumes 1 & 2 showcases a collection of rare 45s – never digitized until now. Each track is a remarkable document from producer Juan D. Shipp and engineer Clyde Leppard’searly ’70s Memphis label, D-Vine Spirituals. At nearly thirty singles, Sacred Soul will captivate you with these historical gems and their context of faith, tribulations, and hope. Elder Ward & The Gospel Four kick off the tribute with their funky, upbeat rendition of “A Change Is Gonna Come”.
