You Brought The Sunshine - The Sound Of Gospel Recordings 1976-1981 Clark Sisters


Catalogue Id:

The first-ever compilation of the most important gospel crossover recordings by the Clark Sisters and their leader Elbernita ‘Twinkie’ Clark. The Clark Sisters were at their very best on this material, and it made them stars of the gospel world.

The CD focuses on their recordings for Westbound subsidiary Sound Of Gospel made between 1976 and 1981. These tracks saw the group at the forefront of modernising gospel music, something that wasn’t without controversy. This culminated in the surprise success of ‘You Brought The Sunshine’ - an early 80s classic on the New York club scene.
In recent years collectors have realised that the Sisters four Sound Of Gospel albums are full of soul-influenced cuts, from the four-to-the-floor disco exuberance of ‘Everything’s Gonna Be Alright’ to the impassioned ‘I’m Going To Have Just What I Want’ with its nods to Aretha Franklin.
Twinkie was so full of music that she released two further albums under her own name. The second, “Ye Shall Receive Power”, now sells for hundreds of pounds, based on demand for the track ‘Awake O Zion’. We have included four of the best tracks from these albums.
