Label: Z Records
Dave 'Joey Negro' Lee's Z Record imprint hit the compilation gold mine once again, calling on the curatorial skills of Dave Hill, former Ballistic Brother and founder of the iconic Nuphonic label, to flex his latter day Gospel expertise for the superb Overdose Of The Holy Ghost. This double LP collection sees Hill chart Gospel music through it's 70s and 80s period as the influences of nascent disco and boogie bore fruit. The chance to own the absolutely belting cover version of Sylvester's "I Need You" by Ricky Womack & Christian Essence in edited Joey Negro format will mean instant purchase for many current disc jockeys, but there is plenty more spiritually enlightened disco heat around it. Essential release!
