The Kansas City Gospel Wonders- Talkin' About a Good Time

The good times are over. The MP3 is gone.

All music is best experienced live, but perhaps no form is more reliant on the interaction between performer and audience than black gospel. And since this group lacks a spectacular voice, and because the recording is a little thin, internet listeners may need to imagine the congregation's call and response to fully appreciate the Kansas City Gospel Wonders. Still, the message and groove are strong enough for even non-believers to feel it. Obtaining this 1999 CD outside of Kansas City will be tough; let me know if you need a copy and I'll scour the local mom-and-pop shops for you.
