Pastor TL Barrett – Do Not Pass Me By

Only 1 left in stock


What our staff has to say: “Numero is pretty hit or miss for me, I sometimes feel like they reissue things for the sake of it but when it comes to soul and gospel they haven’t missed. This is the second reissue numero has done from Pastor TL Barrett. As great as the first record is this one somehow surpasses it for me, so much passion in every song and a must have for anyone who loves soul.” – Kobe

The sequel to Pastor Barrett’s landmark 1971 masterpiece Like A Ship…, Do Not Pass Me By finds the young Chicago preacher and his Youth for Christ Choir continuing their genre-bending spiritual journey. Heavy drums, soaring falsettos, euphoric tambourines, sharp horns, and Barrett’s unwavering devotion dance around a 40-piece choir, working together to form sanctified slab of gospel funk. Pressed in a minuscule quantity in 1973, Do Not Pass Me By was sold primarily from the pulpit of Barrett’s Mt. Zion Baptist Church, disappearing into Chicago’s south side for 45 years before Numero’s excavation. The ten-song album has been remastered, it’s generic album cover updated to match Barrett’s vision. On the back of the jacket, he insisted on the following words: “After listening to this album you will be glad that you did not pass it by!”
