elcome to the Digital Meltd0wn Music Blog. The aim of this blog is to introduce the readers to music that is out of print, commercially unavailable, released under a creative commons license, or with approval by the featured artist. The majority of the music posted here would be considered underground. Don't let that fool you into thinking that the music featured here might be any less enjoyable than that of the mainstream artists you hear on the radio, as this couldn't be further from the truth.
Please keep in mind that the majority of the artists that appear on this blog, along with their respective record labels, are not wealthy and need your support. If you enjoy the material that you find here, please support the artists/labels by purchasing their material afterwards. If you are an artist/label that would prefer to have your material removed from this blog, simply leave me a comment, and I would be more than happy to promptly remove the offending post.
In addition to running this blog, I also work on a few other projects during my spare time. You can find links to those, as well as a few other important links associated with Digital Meltd0wn in the menu bar above.
Allow me to apologize in advance for the short review. My time has been divided between working on the upcoming project for this blog, updating the DM blogroll, college, and work, so I haven't had much time to focus on writing a lengthy review for any new albums. I had been looking for this album for some time before "" was kind enough to fill my request last week. Thank you once again , for making it possible for me to listen to this gospel gem, and share it with the visitors here also.
What we have here is a gospel recording released in 1962, which captures a very upbeat set of performances by Rev. Louis Overstreet, his four songs, and the congregation of St. Luke Powerhouse Church of God In Christ. I should point out that this is a vinyl rip of the original recording released by Arhoolie, and not the reissue released by Mississippi Records. What makes this recording unique from other gospel recordings of the era is the electric guitar, played by the good Reverand, that is featured throughout. It helps to give the performances a more down and dirty rock 'n' roll feeling to it all. Those who follow this blog know that I despise most mainstream religions; however, music like this transcends the religion itself in my opinion, and I can't help but be captured by it's energetic soulfullness. I hope you all enjoy this album as much as I did, and if you do, please take the time to leave a comment and let me know what you think.
