THE EDITED PRESS RELEASE: “In 1970, while the United States was recovering from the tumultuous unrest of the ’60s and Southern segregationist George Wallace was between bids for the presidency, a young black preacher and an aging hillbilly bandleader struck up a friendship in a coffee shop in downtown Memphis. For the next decade and a half, record producer Juan D. Shipp and studio engineer Clyde Leoppard embarked on a musical journey that produced some of the most stirring sacred soul music ever laid to tape. Behold the story of Shipp’s D-Vine Spirituals record label, told here for the very first time since it’s 45 RPM glory days, and see if you don’t agree with the original company motto: D-Vine Is Gospel.”
