Gospel Compilation COMO NOW Due Out This Summer
Published June 27, 2008

Daptone has earned a reputation for creating and proliferating the purest of today’s soul and funk music. However, their criteria will take a sharp turn this summer with the release of COMO NOW.

 

The small rural town of Como lies tucked in the heart of Panola County, Mississippi. Here, children and grown folks alike have been living and breathing gospel for as long as they can remember. In the summer of 2006, Daptone Records placed a small ad in local papers and on the radio inviting singers to come down to Mt. Mariah Church to record their songs. The result is COMO NOW, a stirring collection of traditional and original a cappella gospel from the voices of Panola County’s own families.

 

Contemporary recordings of contemporary people, the 16 songs on this record feature performances by every one of the singers that came down to Mt. Mariah Church on July 22nd, 2006. From the slow stirring duets of Brother Raymond and Sister Joella Walker to the bouncing harmonies of the Jones Sisters, every song on this record is modern audiences everywhere to hear how the people of Como, Mississippi sing – right now.
